Stayed in one of the "budget" rooms and found it to be exceptionally nice! Clean, tidy and comfortable. Reasonably priced. The bed was comfy and the room well appointed. The hosts friendly and helpful. Best still it had a great seafood restaurant across the road. Would definitely stay there again.

Located Centrally in the Lakes Entrance water front, this motel is an ideal place to stay there. We stayed only one day, got a one bed room apartment with 2 bathrooms. Very clean and comfortable beds. All necessary items for a few days stay was there. Recommended!!!

Stayed a night here in the Christmas season. Probably a fair bit cheaper off-season but bit expensive for the Xmas bookings (as is everything I guess). Reasonable motel room, basic but clean. Place was booked out but noise from other guests was minimal. Only spent one night and were lucky to get a room given our late booking. Parking right...

We managed to book this motel on line during what is the peak season. Ideally located in on the Esplanade it offered a good standard of accomodation, especially for the cost. The check in was efficient and hassle free, the room was clean and well maintained. The big attraction for the motel is the ideal location in the centre of...

The plus for this budget hotel is the location. Close to shops, restaurants and waterfront. Reception was friendly. The room would benefit with a good coat of paint. The room was clean but tired looking.

I booked the room by directly calling the hotel as had left for too late. I booked it for two nights and was quoted sub 300 for the total which I double checked before confirming the booking. On checking in, I was given a receipt which in error I did not check thinking that I would have been charged correctly...

Check in was quick and pleasant, and I was given a room at the rear of the complex. It is a 1 minute walk to the local RSL which has very good and reasonably priced foods. The room was very clean, queen bed and has been renovated recently. My favourite; it has a great strong shower. They offer free WIFI...

My wife and I stayed at this Motel over the weekend for 2 nights. The greeting at reception was good and it set the tone for our stay. It is obviously an old motel but has been well maintained and had some room updates. The rooms are comfortable with 2 comfy chairs and a small round table plus we had...

Situated right on the beach front, a good sized room with new bathroom. Great hotwater pressure and plenty of hot water. Walking distance to many options for meals from takeaway to bistros. Across the road from the lakes and a short walk to the foot bridge to get to the beach. Quite and cosy.
