Beach Drive Motel
Ranked #12 of 18 Hotels in Batemans Bay
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Nice enough little motel for the money, room was fine (it was one of the superior rooms) and everything worked (including the huge modern TV!)

It's a budget motel and we paid less than $100 per night and the room was fine for the money. WiFi was free and worked well and the owner was genuine and helpful too.

It could do with a lick of paint here or there but overall there was nothing nasty here.

Location is great, right near town and the harbour. Cost effective; friendly owners, and the room was clean and catered to our needs. Overall a very enjoyable comfortable stay.

The twin room was tiny, the airconditioning was noisy, everything was old, outdated (except the TV, brand new) and the beds formed a perfect U shape.

But the bathroom was amazing. It looked like it had been renovated and was all bright, white, sleek and brand new. It was the nicest bathroom I have ever had in a motel and in complete and bizarre contrast to the rest of room which was decrepit and worse for wear.

The motel did offer WiFi but the rate was very expensive which the owner agreed and he said they were trying to change the service provider to one in which they could offer free WiFi to patrons. So make sure you ask about WiFi if choosing to stay here.

Overall the room was as decent as most motels, it was clean and quiet but considering the price was near AU$200 and despite the seasonal surcharges I was still expecting better.

All right. Staff barely spoke ... rooms were quite cosy equipped with plasma TVs.

We booked this motel based on good TA reviews but the place was a disappointment. The motel was well located , very close to the centre but apart from that not worth staying. We had a triple standard room that was so tiny we had no place to put our suitcases and things. No wardrobe, no hangers, no towel hangers in the bathroom, no shampoo and the towels seemed to have been used for ages. The room was not properly cleaned either. The worst thing was the lightning of the room. It felt as if you were in a jail with only ceiling lamp. The TV set was new and in good size though and had a lot of channels and free Wi-Fi internet was availble. Fortunately we only stayed one night. If the price had been right it would not make such a difference but 185 AUD for such a shabby room was outrageous...

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms might have been better, but a standard room was below standard and highly overpriced

After a very long drive to Batemans Bay with our two young boys we were desperate to find a place to stop, unpack and have a rest. We came across Beach Drive Motel and pulled in. We chose to pay the little etra for the delux room as the standard was a little compact. We were extremely pleased to see the large tv and a bigger sized fridge, perfect for all our food for the kids. There was enough room for the boys to play inside as well as a small grassed area out back to let them have a little run. There were all the usual free to air channels plus more then enough austar channels, which was perfect because there were a couple of rainy days. On the nicer days, we took the boys across the road to the bay when the tide was out. We seen pelicans and shells, not to mention a couple of dolphins. We had lunch at the soldiers club (less then a five minute walk) and were extremely pleased to see all shopping centres were only another one or two minutes walk. After hours out and about we were always happy to return to the motel. The cafe next door came in handy on those lazy days too. No complaints from us. The owners were lovely and both had a good sense of humour.

This motel is in a very good location and the proprietors are very friendly and helpful but the room we stayed in for $150 a night peak season was below what we had experienced at other similar establishments on our journey along the east and south east coast of Australia.If you stay at this motel book a deluxe room which are more what we had expected the standard would be like for the price we paid.
