We were looking for a 3 star one night stay in Lakes Entrance. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Although the motel is dated it was very clean and at least the shower had a door rather than a shower curtain. Ok it isn't deluxe but it is priced very well for someone on a budget. I have no...

Right on the water and close to shops , but the rooms require upgrading and linen, pillows etc need replacing.. Luckily I was only there one night... Good if you are in a tight budget and for short stays..

You can't fault the location or the friendliness of the staff but Mariners really needs a face lift. Quite clean ( some mould in the shower) but you can't clean broken tiles, faulty lights, very thin walls and just general wear and tear. On the up side, the meals are fab and everything is within an easy walk.

Right in the heart of the township, this hotel is well appointed and the rooms are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The only downside was the smell of cigarette smoke wafting from the bar below and from adjoining rooms’ outdoor terraces. The view out over the river and bay to the ocean is perfect, and we’d stay again... More

Overall the room was old, but clean and neat. Kids at least had a single bed to themselves. Our water view consisted of a view of the building roof next door, with a slight glimpse of water. Unfortunately the guests we had alongside us decided to come up to their room after being in the bar below for hours and... More

Right next to pub/attached to it so alot of noise from people on balcony. Location was nice however whole place smelt of stale smoke even though there... More

The room was spotless and comfortable. Bathroom was very clean but a shower curtain is not really something you find in hotels anymore. Reception was very friendly. Parking under the building was disgusting and did not look like it has been swept in days. The $20 breakfast was shocking. We had to pay extra for cappacino?

Feeling a bit underwhelmed by this place at the moment; the negatives are outweighing the positives by quite some margin. The handover of key and information was not the best; there was no parking which we were told there would be, and considering we booked some considerable time ago, this was disappointing. The phone in the room did not work,... More

Great location. Super friendly and helpful staff. Updated rooms. Great view from most rooms. Beaut balcony on most rooms to take in the views. Bistro and bar onsite. Looks a bit shabby on the exterior but I found the interiors to be clean and comfortable.
