We always stay at the Chelsea Motor Inn. It is handy to the Coffs Ex Services Club. It is clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful. There is parking outside your room. There are plenty of places to eat in the area, that are in walking distance. Also a Dan Murphy's next door.

Stayed at the motel recently. Found the rooms clean and tidy although a bit dated. The motel is close to several clubs, hotels and restaurants. Rooms at the rear were fairly quiet with minimal highway noise. Recommend for an overnight stay, any longer I would be chasing something a little bit larger. Staff at reception were welcoming and pleasant to... More

The room was clean and the bed comfortable, so for value for money, I would say very good. We had a ground floor unit as requested, and it was fairly quiet. Parking was no problem either. A little bit of noise from others smoking outside their rooms late into the evening, but everything settled down later at night. Breakfast was... More

I was put in Chelsea motor in Coffs Harbour though department of emergency housing, my partner was waiting for me in the car park and the owners kicked me out as it was only myself that had paid for a motel, not for 2 people. But my partner never stayed with me or entered the motel. I was treated like... More

We stayed at Chelsea's as a quick stopover in between destinations. I wish I could find something to like about this motel, however there were so many negatives. Upon check in there were 2 very dodgy looking people smoking outside of our room. Our room was therefore filled with cigarette smoke upon entering. The hotel had many questionable characters and...

We stayed for 1 night in a ground floor unit at the rear of the complex. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, making for a quiet nights sleep! There is plenty of parking available. The gentleman at the front desk was lovely and friendly. A bonus is that the Ex-Serviceman's Club is just across the road. Highly... More

Deciding to get away for my husbands birthday we once again hit Coffs Harbour, we tend to try different places each time including some of the big resorts, and they tend to be a bit disappointing.

This was our fourth trip to Coffs Harbour over the past eight years, and we have stayed somewhere different each time. The Chelsea Motor Inn has actually been the best accommodation so far (with our two previous visits, we tried the bigger resorts). It's well situated in the centre of town, with good restaurants and a nice little shopping arcade... More

Chelsea Motor Inn Coffs Harbour is a decent overnighter for anyone in need of a stopover after a long drive or a stay in Coffs Harbour. The hotel is conveniently near the Coffs Harbour Ex-Services club and shops. The rooms are an average size, however were large enough for our stay (2 adults, 1 child). The room had a kitchenette,...
