Byron Bayside Motel is a self-described budget motel. It is definitely not 4 star accommodation but certainly a good value in this over-priced town. Our unit (number 18) had one large main room with a double bed, bunk bed, couch, TV, DVD, bar fridge, microwave, 2-burner hotplate with small oven, kettle, toaster and a good selection of dishes and cutlery. The ensuite bathroom had a shower as well as a washer/dryer which was very handy. Towels and soap are replaced daily. There was a small private patio with a table and four chairs off the main room. The unit had no AC (there was a ceiling fan) but that was not a problem while we were there in March, as a nice breeze came through the windows and sliding door. Wifi is also included although we did not have a very strong signal. The average price for each of three nights was $125.
The motel is located in a great spot with an easy walk to the beach and the centre of town (5 min). It is well away from the noise of the town. There is a large grocery store a short walk away, and lots of restaurants and cafes within a 5-minute walk. The manager was very helpful and provided lots of local information. Underground parking is secure and locked at night.
There are two flights of stairs to get to rooms (no elevators) so heavy baggage can be difficult.
Noise can be a problem as many in the younger crowd stay here but there is a strict noise policy that is enforced by management so call them if you have a problem. Be prepared to make at least one call each night because you will experience noise.
