We only had to stay here for one night and it was surprisingly clean and big enough for us and our 2 kids. It is close to everything that we needed and the staff were very friendly. Great value for money!

Motel 617 Kiama is your average overnight place to stay. I could say it was OK if not for the view outside the door....well...out the door and down the road a bit. The motel is a 5 minute walk from Surf Beach Kiama. THIS is a beautiful beach and made staying at the motel a pleasure and a must in the future!! But back to the motel. I found the rooms clean neat and well kept. The counter staff brought me into line with the rules right off the bat, but that was OK, rules make for smooth running. The breakfast was typical and yummy and arrived hot !!. Anything fancy needs to be ordered in advance. A 10 minute walk and you are in Kiama township with a great number of fantastic resturants for dinner. 20 minutes and you are at the blowhole for a spot of lunch. You have to see the morning sunrise here. If you are after a good cheap place to stay on the south coast, stay here.

The room was clean although a bit on the small side, apart from that the place was ok. We would consider staying there again as long as the room was discounted.

Very small room with few facilities except a good shower etc. Coulnt get any heat from the aircon/heater and receptioist came over but was confused by finding two seperate remotes- one obviously redundant- persevered and after a chinesse in the town tried again. Eventually owner(?) came over and demonstrated after that it was very good and kept us warm on rather a miserable night.Reasonably priced but I think We could have found better value elsewhere in the town.

I lived in Motel 617 for one night. The room was tiny, very average, but clean. If you are a budget traveler, this could be your choice. Close to the famous Kiama blowhole.

My husband and me stayed for one night at the motel. The room was small but good enough and well equipped with basic amenities.
We payed $99 for a weekend night.

Our room was very clean, but otherwise unremarkable. Nothing bad to say about the motel, and it was nice enough that we decided to spend a second night there rather than search for another motel. Refreshing outdoor swimming pool.
