Booked this hotel for my parens to stay over christmas 2014. The room I booked for them was on the 4th floor and had wonderfull views out over the ocean. The room was large & comfortable. The only thing wrong with the hotel was that there is no lift, not a problem for younger people, but a bit of aconcern... More

Was told by the manager that because we booked on line we wouldnt be getting a room with a view. Pity the place is so overpriced when you are given a tiny room at the back with no view, parking for only a few cars for the whole motel, tiny televisions, and less than helpful staff.

Thank you for your comments and we are sorry that your expectations were not met. The booking you made online was for one of our three budget rooms. As indicated through the booking site and on our website our budget rooms do not have a balcony or view. All other rooms do. The televisions in all of our rooms are... More

Stayed at Ocean Front Motel this weekend (12th Dec). We love the rooms with the hot tub. So relaxing sitting in the hot tub with a wine looking out over the beach and ocean. The staff are friendly and will help with any request. You can stroll only the beach to the restaurants; have a swim or just relax on... More

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July, and the room was large with plenty of space and had a great view. It is only a couple of minutes drive (or a 15 - 20 minute walk) to the centre of the Entrance. Reception were helpful with maps of how to get to some... More

Stayed early December 2014. Had originally booked different dates, but had to change our plans at the last minute. The staff were very friendly & obliging & we were upgraded to a higher floor (room 16). The view was absolutely stunning, the decor was a bit dated but the room was massive & reasonably clean. Undercover parking is also available.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on 07th & 08th November 2014 in a Ocean deluxe room. We were unable to book a room with the Spa, due to availability & only booking three days in advance. No complaints at all about this Motel. It has been recently refurbished, staff were polite and friendly and the rooms... More

Stayed in same room (27 on top level) as 4 years ago! Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the vast ocean & sky view, with choice of pillow height, plus sound of the sea to lull us to sleep. A little more dated now, not luxurious (& block-out curtains needed laundering), but has everything you need, and still excellent... More

We stayed for 2 nights, if you want views this is the place for you. Ocean Front is exactly what it is. Also upgrade to a room with a hot tub on the balcony is well worth the extra $50 a day, just makes your getaway that even more relaxing in the hot tub, looking over the sweeping views! Seafood...
