This motel is located in the township of Byron Bay, very close to the shops, restaurants and the beach. However it is in a quiet part of town away from the bars and hotels. The Staff were extremely friendly & helpful and the Rooms are basic but very clean. My Room also had a balcony with table & chairs. There... More

Just a 2 minute walk from the heart of town. Felt safe and everything was secure. Private parking. Friendly and helpful staff. The complex was neat and tidy. The rooms were great. Clean and had all the necessary essentials for a budget stay. The room was very quiet from traffic outside as we never heard a car until we opened... More

This centrally located motel was chosen as it was economical. It is within walking distance to everything (beach, restaurants and shops). We had a lovely and informative welcome. The room was tidy but is in need of a good clean. Probably due to a long summer. There was mould in the shower recess and lots of mould on the curtains.... More

You can't beat the location of Byron Bay Side Central motel, plus the kitchenette and washer and dryer make this a great place to base a holiday in the area. We loved having a large balcony to sit outside for morning coffee and evening drinks. We holidayed and scuba dived locally, plus we used BB as a base for visits... More

I was staying for 6 nights but for 2 nights had 2 female relative visitors. The manager took a lot of trouble (I had to pay extra of course) to reallocate us to a more suitable room. Cleanliness and faculties overall were good. It was disappointing that the balcony and public areas were concrete, not tiled or paved. Expensive for... More

The Byron Bay Side Central Motel is conveniently located in a the centre of town. That's about all it has going for it. The rooms are dated with 1980's decor. The carpets were sticky. Your feet stick to the carpets like you are wearing Velcro soled shoes. Bring a pair of binoculars if you want to watch the TV from... More

Was clean enough and ok for a couple of night stay. Found it very loud due to two reasons. Bats in reserve on other side of road. Plus, there was a restaurant directly below my room, which made sleeping not great of a night. Other rooms may not be as affected.
