Reviewed December 29, 2011

We spent two nights over the Christmas Week end. Wwhile the rooms were old and dated, the staff were great. OK so the ceilings were peeling due to what looked like water leaks, the aircond worked well, there were new mattress on the beds and the unit was clean and serviced daily. There was 1 room with a double bed and 2 x single beds and dining table, fridge & TV. there was a shower, toilet & sink in the back area. Cooking was done in a shared kitchen, near the laundry. the room had a fridge, microwave & a kettle with tea, coffee & milk.
These units are right on the beach, just cross the road & you are on the beach which was great for swimming,fishing.

Not this is not the Hilton but for the price you pay you get an amzing view of the ocean. THere is even a picnic table you can go and sit on to enjoy the sunset. My room had a queens sized and single bed. All the things you expect tea coffee fridge etc plus a microwave. Also a kitchen you can use of you like. Had a few issues getting the TV working but it was fixed straight away.As already said a great hotel a few doors down where you can enjoy a meal Wedensdays are Steak night $12.95 for steak chip salad bar and soup.

Room Tip: THe front rooms have a view of the ocean but are on the road so maybe a bit noisier (not taht I was...

Great location. Wake up to the beach just right in front of the motel. Very friendly staff. Rooms are ok for a motel. Small TV but expected from a motel. Good value considering the fact that it is right in front of the beach.

On a roadtrip with the TA icon Genghis, we spent one night in this small motel. The best thing about this motel is its fabulous location steps from the Indian Ocean. We arrived just in time for sunset, and it was truly remarkable.

Service in the hotel was relaxed and friendly in a very Australian way. the rooms were functional and complete with everything you need for a comfortable overnight stop.

Situated across the road from the Indian Ocean, this little cheapo takes second place behind the star attraction, the sunset at Bunbury beach, everything else eventually fades in the background.

There’s no real point talking down a cheap motel, its a clean roof over your head & a mattress for your back, when you wake up in the morning reflect on the fact that you saved money staying here & there’s no sand in-between your privates. All very good points.

For those interested, our Family Room cost $165 (Room 5) had 1 double & 3 single beds in a configuration that makes the most of space & is relatively comfortable. Basics such as mini fridge, aircon, Foxtel 51 cm TV, dining table, plates, tea & coffee facilities & bathroom were fine. Thick walls will spare your family any embarrassment from late night noises or loud Chinese grandmothers. No AAA rating or pool but why would you need one.

Down the road from a beach front bar & grill which opens til late, a much loved icon in the opposite direction & a few minutes drive into town where supermarkets & liquor can be found.

Asked what time was check-out, the manager replied ”10-11...whenever you can manage, no rush” this sums up the whole vibe of this place, enjoy.

We stayed at this motel June 27, 2007 in the self contained apartment block which is seperate from the other standard apartments. Nice and neat but very noisy Ocean Beach Road. Try to get a room a bit further back.

Warning: We thought the self contained apartments included Foxtel and even the TV has Foxtel sign on it...WRONG. No Foxtel for self contained apartments which fall under the same motel name but apparently are privately owned. So advertising is misleading.
