I could hardly believe the reviews I have read on TA pertain to the same Motel I recently stayed in. As noted by other reviewers we booked a couple of months ahead and were penalised by paying a very high rate as against the rate advertised later, in fact, this was the most expensive motel on our recent trip, and this included Jupiters on the Gold Coast.
The room was clean but dated. The water temperature in the shower was very variable with the water alternating from very hot to cold without intervention, very disconcerting. The shower had mildew and mould on the grouting and floor and the outside hallway was dirty and dusty. The balcony was also dirty with rusting and leaking air conditioners. We found the stairway very difficult to negotiate with luggage, especially as we are not young. Car parking was very tight and also noisy as people tried to get their cars into position. Overall, we are very surprised that this motel rates number 2 in Coffs Harbour, what on earth are the others like?
