We stayed in June 2016. This is a classical motel, not very modern, but well maintained. Clean, comfortable, not far from the center (approx 10 minutes drive) and also from the beach. The pool was clean too. The wifi was good.

The lady at front desk was very polite and extremely helpful. The location wasnt too bad. Close to eateries and the beach. The room was average. If only it was sound-proof as i could hear everything going on in the rooms around me, meaning I got no sleep. The room was mouldy and the bed uncomfortable. Priceline.com classes Camden Motor...

We stayed 2 nights and that was enough, It was so noisy and very run down. The bathroom door wouldn't close properly and when it did it would get stuck, the taps kept leaking and the shower head drizzled. The pool was clean but the spa looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while.

A one night stay turned into the worst sleep ever. Being located next to the highway made it noisy all night. The bed mattress was extremely old and you could feel the springs digging into your body. Very uncomfortable! The bathroom had mould on the ceiling, shower tiles and even the shower curtain. The towel rail was rusty. The shower... More

Owner (Patricia) insisted on charging my cc for the "holding fee". My card hadn't been activated and I had to ring the bank, I also forgotten my PIN (at this point in time she said "I haven't got time for this") so she had to do it manually & charged me a $2 fee for it. She was very abrupt... More

Stayed on a (too) brief visit to the area. The room was clean and conveniently located to dining, shopping and beaching. We were able to walk to nice restaurants, a bottle store, and a dairy (convenience store).

If you are after a comfortable bed and a quiet location, the Camden Motor Inn would suit your needs. Located close to shops, cafes and bus stop this small block of units is not far from the beautiful Mermaid Beach. The manager is friendly and made us feel very welcome. Would be happy to stay again in the future.
