Ocean Drive Motel
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Bunbury
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We needed 9 beds for at short notice and had no trouble getting a couple of family rooms for a very reasonable price from the friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean, well appointed and great value. Comfortable beds and a fantastic location. There were no problems at all. It is 'old school' as suggested is another review, but if you are looking for a good clean comfortable room rather than a resort this can be recommended.

we stayed there for one night only. the room was a bit small and dated. of course, the price of the room was very reasonable. the customer service person was very helpful. our baby was only 6 months at that time, they provided a cot to us free of charge.
our sleeping quality was pretty good. the location of the motel was also great (just next to the beach).
it is recommended as a good, clean budget accommodation.

Myself and a friend stayed for 2 nights. The manager was lovely the room was clean, it was value for money. We stayed in one of the newer rooms and it had everything you could need for your time away. Great location right across from the beach and a few minutes drive to town. Would stay again!

The ODM is an old school motel on the beach. Don't expect anything more than what you see from the photos. Our room was clean and functional without any of the problems shown in some of the snaps. The woman at the desk was really helpful and nice. She gave us some standard suggestions for what do do around town and we ended up walking along the beach into town ( 15-20 mins. ) for dinner.

We wanted a budget stay in Bunbury and this motel fit the bill. Lovely location. It is an old motel but has everything you need. 5 minutes from town and right on the beach. If you want more upmarket accommodation, then you must pay for it. Everything was as we expected. Beach is over the road which would suit Europeans and travellers that love the beach. We found it clean and comfy.

I found our stay here pretty disappointing.
We stayed on another street altogether, so no views or just over the road walk to the beach (sure, its only a few minutes... but thats not the point)

What I found the worst was paying any kind of money to find that the coffee table was missing parts and had a huge dent in it! The bathroom is certainly old, and although the kitchen looks like its been slightly done up, there is plenty of room for improvement in the unit.

Service wise, perfectly nice.
For the price, not impressed.

Also - they charge you before you even arrive - make sure you read the fine print guys!

This place has the potential to be amazing... I hope someone spends the money to make it so!

Room Tip: If you want to be right across the ocean, ask for rooms that are attached to reception.

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends, the room was clean, big enough and right on the beach, the staff were friendly and the WiFi was free. If you want a fancy hotel go and book one if you want cheap and cheerful this place is fine.
