From the moment we walked into the i site building - that was the start of a friendly town. We found our way to this Motel and Steve made us feel most welcome. The unit was most comfortable. Recommend

Very well situated and close to restaurants and beach (of course) The rooms and amenities were very clean and Steve offered fresh towels on the second morning. This Motel comes highly recommended by my brothers and I and would gladly stay... More

It's a small motel, only 6 units I think. We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom units and were very happy. It was a good size, tidy and clean, everything we needed. The 1 bedroom units do front the road so there is a little bit of noise, but it's hardly a constant stream of cars going past in... More

Small motel (5 or 6 units) but very well presented, lots of amenities and plenty of room to spread out and relax. Owner Steve is very helpful with information about the town. On site parking is fine and beach is across the road.

Great place to stay. Friendly owners, good clean apartment that had everything that we needed. Beach across the road and shops/cafés a short 5 min walk away. Great outdoor area with trampoline and swings for the kids. Would without a doubt stay again.

We like a place with a little room to move around and a lot of kitchen to cook in. Beaches Motel is tops on both accounts, and owner Steve is the icing on the cake. He's helpful, friendly, happy, and accommodating. Knowledgeable about the area too. He recommended what turned out to be a glorious walk to Orokawa Bay. Easy... More

We are self sufficient travellers. If we could find accommodation like this everywhere we went, it would make us very happy. The facilities are great - very well appointed kitchen & plenty of room elsewhere. We highly recommend Beaches Motel.
