A good, clean and well located place to stay in Kiama, easy access to main tourist attractions. Walking distance (10-15 mins) to the main street with a beach just down the road. Close to the little blowhole. Great for the budget conscious traveller with easy parking.

The room I stayed at in Motel 716 was beautiful. Very clean, and attention to detail. Modern and cute. People were lovely. The room was great. The furniture was a little funky, and they had gone to quite an effort to modernise. Thanks for a friendly stay.

My partner and I stayed here over night and found the motel fine for our needs. It was easy to catch a taxi before and after the party attended. Sure the room was not huge but it was big enough and we had no problems at all.

The photo on booking.com of the pool shows the establishment's best feature, the pool. The room would have been alright 30 years ago. Well overdue for a complete overhaul. It is also quite a distance from the main street and all of the eateries so bring a packed lunch.

Expensive for a basic room....had been repainted which was obvious by the paint splatters left, room had a strong deodorising smell. Bathroom and shower was tiny and room small.Noisy due to people moving around in the room upstairs. Positives were that the bed was comfy, shower was hot and reception staff pleasant.

After a friendly check in, we went to our room which was smallish but well equipped with everything one needed for an overnight stay. The bed was firm and comfortable, the small bathroom showing signs of wear and needed concentrated cleaning in the crevices and corners. OK for an overnight or two at the most. The price we thought was... More

Small, clean and well equipped rooms. In an excellent location close to the main part of town as well as beaches and local points of interest. Great service with quiet rooms, I stay here whenever I'm in town.

Stayed here this past weekend to go an air show that was subsequently cancelled but since we had already paid we went anyway. Bed was hard and not very comfortable and you could hear the shower next door like it was in our room it was so loud! Apart from that it was very clean and close to town. Would... More
