Such a great location - the BBM is a short walk from the centre of town, so no need for a taxi, walk to light house across the road from the main beach - a cute little pool great when the beach is windy...

Room Tip: I stayed in the balcony room, although I have stayed in the east side a little smaller but also comf...

I am very disappointed in this motel. I have tried twice to book a "Standard 2 Night Room" on their site. Each time i go to process the payment i get an error saying I have not met the minimum stay. The room is a "2 night room" and I am booking for 2 nights.

When i called the hotel, I was told by the very rude receptionist that the owners have 'changed their mind', for this period it will be a minimum 5 night stay. This is not stated anywhereon their site, and to make matters worse over the past few days a number of our family and friends have booked the same room for 2 and 3 nights. I was told that they have now changed their policy for this time period, there is nothing she can do for me. I was told to call back in a few days to see if there are any updates.

I am very displeased with the service i have received.

Stayed here as a solo traveller for a couple of days in October and was impressed by the location, facilities and friendly staff. The rooms were spacious, nice decor and with all the facilities you would expect of a motel. I recommend as a good value for money option right near the beach and town.

Have stayed here on Business many times and have always found it great.
The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from the heart of Byron town, but tucked away from the noise & traffic - with the main beach just across the road. Parking is very secure and you feel very safe at this Motel.
The staff are always helpful & friendly and the rooms are good value when compared to most in Byron Bay (with Byron $$ generally more expensive in relative terms compared to the rest of NSW)
Always clean & tidy and a great place to spend the night

The Bay Beach Motel is good enough for the price - and everywhere is very expensive in Byron Bay. The rooms are cosy in size and some of the fittings are a little worn. It is very convenient to the beach and the main strip of Byron and the staff are very helpful. Fine to stay for a night or two.

Just to get the negatives out of the way first (and like most tripadvisor reviews, focusing on minor annoyances):
- the taps in both bathrooms took an almighty effort to turn off to stop a constant dripping
- construction site next door (not their fault and soon to be finished as the town library)
I struggled with an average versus very good rating. Why? I'm not sure. We really enjoyed our stay. The position is great, close to beach, town, and lighthouse. Perhaps because it wasn't cheap - but then it was in line with Australian motel prices, and Byron is an expensive place to stay.
We stayed in an apartment with one double and a one two-bunk bedroom. The kitchen was clean, well provided, and had a good eating space. The bright and comfortable lounge room was on a corner with a great view up the main street to the hills.
The rooms were unobtrusively cleaned and freshened every day with a comprehensive attention to detail.
It is on the main street, so there is some noise through the street-facing bedroom windows, especially when the backbackers on the next block empties after their band nights. Luckily it is getting towards the lighthouse end of the beach drive part of this street.
Overall it felt like a very relaxed holiday break with no accomodation worries or quirks, so that's always a good thing in my mind.
Perhaps if I could do a 3.8 rating, I would....
