I Try to be fair in my reviews and most of the time I accept that you get what you pay for..I quite enjoy old style motels for short stays. But they must be Clean... In short ,a pile of dirt sat at my doorstep...A partially renovated room (Tiles & Kitchenette) could have been promising..But was a forgotten project... Still... More

Here are the photographs not much more to say. Room disgusting, smelled, toilet had faeces (poo) on it. Microwave had food remnants on the buttons & inside was worse. Room was mouldy & dusty. We were booked for 3 nights, left after 1. When I reported & sent photos to booking.com they phoned the "Resort" & the rude, obnoxious lady... More

We went to The Entrance for a weekend and I wish I had to looked at the rooms before I handed over my $ 220. The location to the RSL 3 doors up the road is wonderful. The 10 minute walk into The Entrance itself was a good walk - even better on the way home after dinner but if... More

The Entrance Reef Hotel is a two storey traditional off street motel that is located just outside the Entrance commercial centre. It offers austere accommodation but, in our experience, it was relatively clean. This included our bathroom which was functional and certainly had enough hot water for a party of three. The décor is face brick and the furnishings are... More

First of it smells like years ago an animal snuck into the room and hid a turd somewhere. Second of all the customer service was very poor, the "dragon lady" was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Almost like we were not welcome. Third of all the cabinet was crappy and broken, the pull out door is stuck and... More

We stayed here for a long weekend mini break and oh my, it's a tip. We don't mind roughing it a bit, and a dodgy motel is fine for a fun weekend, but the reef 'resort' is appalling. The place is falling to bits. The bathroom door looked like it had been kicked in, the 70s furniture was crumbling and... More

The accomodation is of affordable category. Suits for short stay to visit entrance for a day. I did not have any bad experiences. It was a bit smelly. I thinks its because it is closed with out ventillation. Seven eleven is just opposite to buy things in need. There is a club close to this if you want to try... More

I was aggressively approached by receptionist as soon as I excited my car. Apparently I had parked in the wrong spot. I didnt know who she was and it was quite intimidating. She was extremely rude. I didn't end up staying and wouldn't even if I was paid good money to stay. I have never experienced such rudeness in all... More

I have never stayed in a place with such rude staff! Something seriously wrong with every aspect of that place. Dirty floor, man at the counter was insulting and rude, shower was broken, room was tasteless, over all Horrendous!
