4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Stayed for the weekend and found this place to be in a good location with very friendly and helpful staff. Room was great for the price and well appointed and clean.Breakfast was very good and very reasonably priced. Would not hesitate to return.

Stayed one night but found the rooms clean and very comfy,also had a wheelchair to get around the room and even though the room was not a disabled room we found it quite easy to manage for one night.The staff were very friendly and helpful and if looking for quite a good meal the club is just around the corner within walking distance.

The Admiral Nelson Motor Inn is easy to locate and has great customer service.
The room for 5 was perfect. It was clean, roomy and the little extras were great.
It was nice to find a place that is descent enough to let you have a one night stay instead of insisting a minimum of 2 nights. As they say - it's the little things that make the difference.
I will definitely stay here if we are ever up this way again.
Thank you Admiral Nelson Motor Inn.

Lovely place to stay. Very friendly check in and check out. Great rooms, nice and tidy and quite large. We were able to walk into town, not that close about a 15mins away but nice place and the walk down the beach was nice. Would highly recommend staying here, great value for money.

A very clean and well appointed motel. Quiet location too. For the price I don't think we could have done any better so 5 stars from us.
Also, we had to go to a funeral and so they let us check out a lot later than normal. Thanks, much appreciated.

Upon arriving at the motel it looked very appealing and the same can be said inside. We entered the motel and were greeted by Sunan who was very friendly and booked us a room for a 1 night stay in the Admiral Suite with a balcony for $109. The room was modern and spacious with the BIGGEST flat screen TV we had seen this side of Currys! (equivalent Aussie electrical appliance store). There was a sofa in the room along with a coffee table, and we had a small kitchenette with a microwave. A/c was provided too. The bathroom was a decent size with a shaving kit, dental kit, soaps etc. provided for guests. We had two large suitcases with us which were easily stored on the fixed suitcase rack provided. Our second case could be stored in the space beneath it.
We nipped out for a takeaway, a good 10 mins drive to town, however we were able to eat it at the table and chairs provided in the room. We did notice a few ants around the kitchen area, which we promptly disposed of! We are unsure if there was an ant station in the room as we didn’t see one.
Due to another day of lengthy travelling we retired to bed shortly after – and WHAT a bed! Bar our own, this was the best bed we had slept in during our 3 week journey South! : ) We had a fantastic night’s sleep and bathroom trips in the night were a doddle due to the pretty stained glass window in the bathroom – no need to turn any lights on, but not strong light which affected our sleep!
As we had a few electrical items with us due to us travelling we needed a couple of plug sockets for charging our items, i.e. mobile phones, sat nav, mp3 players. We ended up unplugging lamps and the alarm clock to do so, at least a dual socket would be beneficial for guests.
Upon leaving my boyfriend drew back the curtains to see some ‘muck’ inside the curtain rail, along with a dead spider. Bit yucky, but nothing housekeeping couldn’t sort out in a flash! Also the screen door was ripped slightly. Again, nothing major.
Bottom line? A good value motel for the price! Stay again? Yes, definitely! : )
