Reviewed February 17, 2017

Although dated, this motel was ideal for a one night stay, close to restaurants, shops and the beach. The owners were friendly and the room comfortable with brand new air conditioner. Shower could be updated but overall a comfortable stay for a very reasonable price, considering the lack of other motel rooms in the proximity.

Lovely owner, very friendly and welcoming. Great location and price was pretty good. Room was very dated, clean enough but not completely. Have not had wool blankets on a bed in years. Toilet cistern would not stop flushing so opened up to find a rubber band had been used for repairs and failed. Pool looked nice but we did not...

Don't usually stay here when in Sawtell, but usual place was booked out so got accommodation here and was pleasantly surprised. The place is pretty old and in need of a revamp, but room was very clean, linen and bed good and a nice little kitchenette installed. Terrific location and owners lovely. I would certainly recommend.

Of all the motels we stayed at during our recent trip, this was the one we were concerned about the most. Our room was on the first floor. When my wife opened the door, the room was huge. It had a kitchen, lounge chairs, a balcony, a double and 3 single beds, a washing machine and dryer in the bathroom...

Reception staff very friendly. Room and bathroom very dated. No air conditioner and noisy ceiling fan. Air freshener stench made my eyes water. Bed comfortable though and TV good. Wouldn't stay here again!

We booked into this motel as it was walking to town and beach. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment. The unit was spotless and very comfortable. There was a fully equipped kitchen, the bathroom was lovely and modern, the bed was very comfortable. It has a large courtyard that is totally private. It was very eclectic. there was movie memorabilia...

My partner and I stayed here Anzac weekend. You cant ask for a better location to the beach and main street. Cinema has just recently reopened, lots of really great cafes and restaurants. We stayed in one of the apartments which was basic, clean and functional. The place is dated, and in need of a renovation and the price reflects...

As another reviewer said - you get what you pay for and $80 a night aint bad. Not where I would stay for a holiday or with family but a convenient stop on the road.Good location. Bed was ok, room old but seemed clean. A decent sleep and a shower. Not much else to say.

This place is a disgrace!! My family and I lasted 1hr and packed our bags and left. ($300 down) Very creepy and weird people lurking around the grounds, as I have kids not ideal. Inside the room was putrid as well not clean. Overall, I've travelled a fair bit in Aus and around the world and never seen a more...
