The Esplanade is in a top location, and with off street parking it is a good place to start exploring the town and the surrounding attractions. The rooms are a cut above the average in terms of decor. ( although not large ) The room that I occupied had a really nice feeling to it. The shower was great ...the...

When we arrived there was only one room left which was more like a little apartment. It was lovely and clean. I am planning another visit with my sisters and elderly mother for 2 nights. The $5 continental buffet was amazing value for money, as was the room. Thanks for a lovely anniversary weekend.

Very comfortable, clean room with separate bedroom and balcony. TV in both the bedroom and the lounge area. Finding a parking spot can be a problem if you go out for the evening and come back late. No room service or breakfast available.

Our front facing room looking out over the esplanade was very neat, reasonably modern and compact but it had a terrible odour that you could almost taste. As we had pre paid and the motel had no vacancy my hubby and I let the room air out while we went to a local hotel for dinner. Unfortunately on return the...

The room was in a good location and rather quiet as it was situated at the rear of the property. We booked it last minute for an overnight stay. Whilst the room was basic and on the small side, it was clean and updated which was all we required for an overnight stay. The proprietor was friendly and welcoming.

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.
