4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

I booked a few nights getaway here via Trip Advisor however on arrival we realised that the second floor unit wasn't going to suit as my travel buddy had taken a fall during the week and her badly bruised knee prevented her from climbing the stairs.

It has been many years since I had visited Coffs but this trip I stayed at the Caribbean , it is close to a hotel, shops and places to eat. The rooms are very large and very clean and the staff are friendly All in all a great place to bunk down for a night or two

We had a family room and the room size was perfect for a family of four. Room is well appointed with all the necessities and there is a kitchenette which had a little note stuck to the wall that warns of an extra fine for not cleaning up before you leave. There is 2 double beds and a single. Comfort... More

I'm happy you found your family room well appointed and our location good. We have checked the bathroom and carpets (I assure you they are vacuumed daily and shampooed as required). In this instance one of our housekeepers was overdoing the cleaning agent which caused a temporary stickiness. We appreciate your feedback. More

I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Great place, great people. Clean & comfortable. Central and with great advice on where to go. Good food close by and really affordable. We were a big group that stayed and the staff went out of their way to accommodate our every need.

Stayed overnight travelling from Sydney to Brisbane. Stayed in a family apartment which was spotlessly clean and very roomy. Staff very friendly and helpful - would definitely stay here again. Also included free wifi.

We stayed here on our way home from Brisbane, it was recommended from the mechanic up the road (lovely bloke). We stayed in room 22, on the third floor, yes a bit of a hike with luggage but not to bad, especially with the water views you get. There is a pub across the road and several different good restaurants... More

Great stopover motel in good location near restaurants. Friendly welcome. Car parking and wifi offered. Room comfortable if a little dated in decor but spa bath welcomed on a cold rainy night to warm up!

This accommodation is just 5/10 minutes walk from the railway station and 10 minutes from the harbour and beach area. Rooms are fresh and clean, bed very comfortable. Continental breakfast included and most welcome. Regret only staying the one evening - 2 or 3 nights would have been better. As a comment would state that elderly people should perhaps request...

The Caribbean Motel is up on a hill not too far from the harbour. We had a nice room on the second floor with a balcony. The owners were nice and friendly and told us where the restaurants were located. We also noticed that they had a coin laundry for guests and we took advantage of that. There is free... More
