Forster Motor Inn is extremely clean and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It does however need an update. The room was very generous in size. It is in a great location and within walking distance to everything. It is value for money. Even though this is a pet friendly motel there wasn't any evidence of dog odour.

Nice and clean room's. Staff were very nice and helpful with any inquiries we had about best places to visit and where to go to eat. Didn't need car within walking distance to beach and lake and nice park for kids on the lakes. Will be staying again on my next trip.

Overnight stay on my bi monthly trip up the coast to Coffs. Not new but very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. No view or anything but real close to center of town and and the river side. I go for ground floor units was not a problem. Will stay there whenever I can.

This is the second visit to the Forster Motor Inn for my wife and I, with our number one pooch. As before, the owners of this fine Inn are very particular about cleanliness and hygiene. There is no odour on entrance to the rooms. The carpets, walls and furniture are spotless. Considering that we opt for the pet friendly room,... More

Stayed here overnight on a trip from Brisbane to Sydney. Called at 9pm to book for a 10pm arrival. The room was very tidy and they had even put the heater on for us so the room was warm by the time we got there. Loved the room I received and the owner was very friendly!

This Motel is within walking distance to the main beach, shopping centre and other points of interest. The owner was really friendly and welcoming, great bed, spacious room and cleanliness was impeccable. We will return and tell friends and family to stay here. Great Value.

We stayed in the family room and it was fantastic for the price. The hosts were friendly, room clean and very comfortable beds. Will definitely be returning. Love it! The kids had a great time, their room was spacious and even had a walk in robe that connected them to the bathroom. Couldn't fault it.
