We usually stay here when in Coffs Harbour because of its great location.
Most times you need to book because it is a very popular motel.
The rooms are nothing outstanding but they are clean and fresh, at least our room was fresh, I think they are doing a refurb. Our room had the deepest bath and I took advantage of it. The water pressure in the shower was great. The air conditioner was one of the quietest I have encountered in a motel room. We usually need to turn them off to sleep, not this one.
The room was small but we were only in town one night so it was fine.
It is not the cheapest motel in Coffs by any ones imagination but I believe it to be the best located, the motels on the main strip are very noisy, we stayed in that location for years before we discovered The Caribbean.
The breakfast choices are not outstanding but I consider them adequate and it is reasonable value.
The car park is tight but there is not much they can do to change this.
Will we stay here again? Yes, of course, the location is the best in town.
Would we recommend it to friends? Without doubt.
Is it the best in town? I am not sure but it suits us.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the car parking, so you don't need to carry your luggage for miles.

Thanks so much for your review, I think future guests will find it really helpful. Many of our guests comment on our location near restaurants, safe beaches, walking tracks and shops and the fact we're also off the highway. There are cheaper motels in Coffs but as you say when you take into account location and value we are a great choice...and to get the best rate call direct, we have a toll free number now to help.
You're right, we are doing a refurbishment replacing beds, carpets, paint and are changing to triple sheeting for a new freshness.
We look forward to seeing you on your next trip.

Stayed on the way back to Sydney. Pulled in without a reservation and got a room for the night. I ended up with a one bed room situated at the front on the building. There was a little noise in this room, from the traffic ie trucks, this is really only in the morning. If the bathroom window and door was closed I am sure I would not have heard anything.

The location is awesome, across the road from the pub and good food options. I had breakfast in the small room next to the pool, and it was ok for a breakfast before starting the drive back to Sydney.

The staff and service was really good. The parking spot are a bit tight, but my car did fit in (only just) but it is wider than most sedans and 4wds.

I would recommend this place to stay and will stay again on my next trip to QLD.

Thanks very much for your review. It sounds like you were happy with our great location. Next time you stay you might like to try one of our balcony rooms with sea view, a spa room or perhaps an apartment ? Also now we have our toll free number so everyone can call direct and get the best rates.

We found it by going to where the restaurants are at Coffs Harbour Jetty and looking about us.It was above us so it was right there and maybe had a view as well.
Our suite was roomy and had a balcony, the decor was modern, it was very clean and the place has a friendly host.
We had enjoyed our driving tour in NSW and had already decided to do another next year. We will finish that holiday with a few days back at Motel Caribbean.

Room Tip: Ask for a view when you book. We thought the extra few dollars was worth it.
