“RelaxationPlease”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

We stayed in a standard room for 2 nights, it was very clean and comfortable. Where could you book a motel for under $100 a night across the road from the water? The Soldiers Club was a short walk along the waterfront where we enjoyed a meal at reasonable prices. The owner was very accommodating to our needs!

A nice country motel at about $100 a night. Walk across the road to the water, 10 minutes to the Batemans Bay CBD. Comfortable, clean, plenty of TV channels,quiet. Friendly owner/manger

Room Tip: Best rooms are a the back in the new block.

Booked 2 deluxe rooms for a family of 3 and a couple and for the price we paid they were excellent. We're used to thinking of budget motels as being somewhere to park up, have a decent bed, a decent shower and drive off again in the morning. We could have stayed here all week. Close to the town facilities and the water. Spacious room, huge TV, quiet fan and A/C, fridge/freezer, microwave, breakfast bar, toaster, balcony with table and chairs, armchairs, iron and ironing board, friendly host and good sound insulation between the rooms. Felt we were lucky to have found it.

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The twin room was tiny, the airconditioning was noisy, everything was old, outdated (except the TV, brand new) and the beds formed a perfect U shape.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