This hotel is in a good location with beach just right behind. Friendly staff.
Stayed room number 1.

Needs improvement:
- furniture is old
- wifi does not reach the room
- Poor tv reception

For $198 per night, these flaws should be fixed.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

This was a last minute booking through the Port Stephens Tourism website - special price of $120!!! Cracked showerscreen, sliding plywood door to bathroom peeling, bar stools with seats falling apart, only 2 pillows, small outdated TV with set top box and reception so bad it was not possible to find any channel that could be watched, broken laminex in tea-making area, cockroaches. We stayed, the bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, but $120 was way over what should have been charged. This motel needs work, work, work, and the man behind the desk needs to improve his manner. Find somewhere else to stay.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

This was recommended to us by Information people - they really need to start checking these places our!!!

It looked tired but I never judge a book etc, went into the room, it was small run down with broken glass around the shower and smelt very bad - didn't stop and when I went to give the keys back he had vanished so left it on the counter.. Room was $95 plus an extra 10 if you wanted Internet, we went on to Admiral Nelson and well read the review but for $4 extra what a difference!!

I needed somewhere to stay whilst attending a wedding in the area. I read other reviews and have to say that I arrived at the motel with a sense of trepidation. All for naught. I was checked in by a freindly bloke who was happy and chatty. The decor in the room was dated however, the room was clean and tidy , but more importantly the bathroom was clean. The bed was comfortable and everything that I used in the room worked, the TV was a new"ish flat screen.
This is a good, honest, down to earth motel, if you're looking for good value accomodation give this place a look.

The motel needs a major upgrade and at $120 per night, it was not good valve with NO views. The carpet was stained and worn, the furnishings of peeling 1970's dark timber veneer, a bathroom with insufficient access in the bathroom between the toilet and shower. The bathroom tiles were old and cracking. The only redeemable feature was the volume of water from the shower spout which telded to push you off your feet so obviously there was NO water saving devises add to the plumbing.
Sleeping was interupted by the noisy air conditioner; when we turned ours off - the one next door then kept us awake.
We will not be staying at this motel again.

Room Tip: No helpful hints - just do not compenplate staing there unless all other accommodation is full.
