Stayed here on a stop over to QLD. Room was clean and super comfortable for a family of four. Outside looks dated but the rooms are modern and well furnished. Great location with easy access to restaurants. Will certainly visit again

This place is situated right in the jetty precinct of Coffs Harbour amongst some excellent restaurants and within walking distance of the jetty foreshore. We had an issue with our booking on arrival but the on site managers quickly rectified this and provided us with an excellent room to suit our needs. The service you get is second to none... More

We stopped in hoping for a room at the last minute (high season it was a miracle it was) and not only did we get lucky, we were in what we think was one of the best rooms and it was a bargain price with a lovely balcony. Don't expect much of the pool, it's a tiny plunge pool but... More

This motel ticks every box - location, cleanliness, price, comfort, modern accomodation and friendliness. From the first interaction with the reception staff we felt at home at the Caribbean. Thank you for your hospitality! Also, for coffee lovers - The first cafe directly opposite this motel had amazing coffee!

What a find this place was. We stayed for one night on Christmas Eve (Rm 5) after a last minute decision to drive to Katoomba (from Brisbane). The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. I would guess that the motel had gone through a renovation within the last 5 years. While the toilet gave the age of the accommodation away... More

On first sight I was a little apprehensive as it looks like any other older style motel. However we found that the rooms and the facilities were up to date and clean and comfortable. Good location with a variety of eating places directly opposite, and a pleasant walk to the nearby jetty and breakwater. We had the room service breakfast... More

The Caribbean Motel at the Jetty was a great little find. The room was clean and comfortable with a view of the water and soft breeze blowing through to the room each afternoon.

It may look a bit older on the outside, but the rooms are modern and very very clean, also a quiet location not far from the beach or pier. Plenty of eateries nearby. Staff very friendly and helpful, would stay again.
