A small motel located in a quiet area on the Central Coast. Ideal for a stop over or few nights. Comfortable rooms with a big aircon in each room and a good comfortable bed to sleep in. Also two clubs nearby with great club buffets

It won't win prizes for best views, but the Cardiff Motor Inn is a great place to stay if you need a comfortable place to stay. Check-in was quick, easy and pleasant.

The Customer Service our family experienced for our recent visit was AAAAA++++ ... If there was a higher rating, I'd happily give them that too!!!. We stayed only the one night and there was a booking crisis averted by the lovely lady at reception

Stayed here overnight on a Saturday. The greeting was friendly and quick. The room, on the first floor, was clean and spacious. The fitting are adequate and a separate single bed was in the room incase of a third person or child staying. This location is handy to Cardiff clubs and is in a quiet location.

We had a very lovely stay at the Cardiff Motor Inn. Very Clean and comfortable and a real bonus was the very friendly welcome we received it's a great place to break our long journey South. Thanks to Kate and Michael the managers for the knowledge they have of the local area and beyond. They directed us to swimming pool...

We booked for one night and got charged for two nights: the reason given its a long weekend, big deal! I was most annoyed and expressed my opinion, but never got an answer. Which annoys me even more. The room was OK if somewhat dated but the soundproofing was very poor. Nope I will not stay here again!
