As stated in the title, could not ask for a better location to stay in Coffs Harbour for a fraction of the price of a resort. The motel is situated directly across the road from the beach and the Bowling Club (good meals), 10 minute walk to the Jetty and Park Beach Plaza. The motel is great for both overnight buisness trips and for the family if you are looking for a motel which provides good service at affordable rates. The Motel Managers were very polite and helpful. In summary the motel is great for people who want to holiday at a great location with easy access to the the local attractions (Pet Porpoise Pool (5 minute walk) and restraunts, it is not on the highway like alot of the other motels, quiet motel. We will visit again.

Great location right across the road to the beach. New managers have just taken over and they made us feel welcome. They were busy cleaning and you can see they will give it a go. Our room was fine, bed good. We will be back, and also enjoyed the cooked breaky.

got conned via marketing company - ALL STAR RESORT MARKETING.... who does not return the complaint phone call '[--] - name was kevin. very nice new management but place was a disgrace.
mould in curtins, shower, cupboards lots of ants (in the bed).
good location from beach but would not stay their again. marketing company said we had an ocean view (not) 2 room self contained apartment (unless you call toaster, jug and microwave self contained).
I'd give the New owners 6mths hard work cut out for them to tidy the place up.

..Thank you for your comments..We are the New Managers of the motel and took over on the 22nd April 2010. We believe the alleged marketing company is conducting buisness incorrectly and we have reported this to consumer affairs who are investigating. We are not responsible for any comments by this alleged marketing company about our motel. What we have been offering is affordable rates.. as customers like yourself have been misled..We have replaced the shower curtains and the ants will be sorted out as we are waiting for the pest control agent to do the entire premises and we will ensure this is done regulary as recomended

We were going up north along the coast, and we had no plans in staying long in Coffs, we needed a decent place to stay for a single night. And The Ocean Parade did perfectly the job.

It is a typical motel: 2 story design, all rooms facing the parking lot (which is nicely part grass there), functional rooms with no desired style.

The room was spacious, with a comfortable and clean bed. Had a great night of sleep.
The bathroom is average but clean. Friendly and helpful hotel manager.

So I would definitely recommend this place for someone looking for a good value motel, but I would probably not recommend it for a long stay, too motelish.
