“A great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed our stay here very much, had 3 nights to explore the area and found the motor inn to be exactly what we wanted: not expensive, clean, comfortable room, friendly service and good food at reasonable prices. Perfectly located overlooking Port Arthur historic site, sitting on the deck with a wine enjoying the views is a fantastic way to wind down!! Don't overlook this place! A bit dated but who cares when it's this beautiful, the sights make it well worth the effort.

Stayed 2 nights mid June 2014..Room was extremely clean and very cosy.. Lady at reception was more than helpful. Location perfect for exploring the ruins of Port Arthur. We purchased a package which included a dinner, we were so impressed with meal we went back the next night.
Great service.

Chose the two day package and was pleased with the value. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and the dinner we had was tasty. It was the middle of winter but the heater kept the room warm. We were both very pleased and plan to stay longer next time.

Port Arthur Motor Inn is located right on the park. We bought a package which included continental breakfast, dinner, park entry and ghost tour. The food was superb and the staff were so friendly. We only had to walk from our rooms to the gate at the motor inn and enter Port Arthur tourist park.

Room Tip: Perhaps a room on the ground floor if you have heavy luggage

We stayed at the motor inn and chose to do so as part of a package which provided entry to a ghost tour at the site and dinner before hand. The price we paid was reasonable and the value expected. The two saving graces are the location of the motor inn to the site and the male manager who was very helpful.
