I've stayed at the Caribbean quite a lot over last several years. Sometimes seems a little overpriced but the staff are always welcoming, handy location and comfortable if small rooms. I just like coming back.

Great motel in the Jetty area of Coffs very close to restaurants and easy walk to marina and the Pier. Motel is an older style but is clean and tidy and the staff are always happy to help out with any requests. Does book out regularly so book early

This is an older established Motel which has been maintained to a satisfactory level. However if you are expecting a modern facility this Motel will not be suitable. We found our room to be tidy however the interior and fitout is dated. On the whole we had a comfortable stay. The carparks were very narrow around the Motel & no... More

Thanks for your your review, glad you had a comfortable stay. You're right we aren't the newest motel in Coffs but we do have one of the best locations and friendly staff, and despite the carparks being tight, there has not been an accident in our five and a half years there. More

Offshore power boat racing enticed us to visit Coffs and I chose the Caribbean based on its proximity to the harbour. After enjoying a two night stay I would now recommend it based on the management. I had made an error when I booked and when discovered Cheryl could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The room was clean... More

The motel is very clean the staff are friendly and convenient to the restaurant strip at Coffs Jetty. The accessible room is near the car park and has plenty of room. The bed is a bit low, the desk is correct height. The bathroom needs more grab handles there are none around the toilet and the shower could have an... More

Great location for an overnight stop. Nice selection of restaurants within walking distance as well as the jetty. Only 10 min from other attractions such as dolphin marine magic, big banana park and the forest sky pier.
