“great motel from the heyday of the 1970s”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I had a couple of days work in Nowra. I stayed at the Marriott Park Motel. I grimaced when I drove up but once inside it was good. There are new owners who have run successful regional motels. They were very helpful and informative when you asked a question. The room was spacious - good size desk, free wifi, foxtel. Very good bed. It was also ony $100 a night.

We very much enjoyed our comfortable 2-night stay at this motel.

The motel is very clean and has been recently refurbished. The owners/managers are very friendly indeed and we found it had everything we needed from a basic motel.

When we arrived our Wotif.com booking from earlier that day was all printed out and ready to go. The next morning the man (?owner) was pressure-hosing the carpark by hand. They obviously take great pride in their establishment. They were very friendly and asked us about our day etc.

We would stay there again.

We had the pleasure of staying at this motel on Friday night. After a long drive we were greeted by Vicki and David (new owners). Our room was very comfortable and clean. We agree with Claudia S we were pleasantly surprised with the motel. It was Friday night before Christmas and with bumper to bumper traffic, we thought that we would have a lot of road noise. We were in Room 4 and heard no noise. Fantasic and would recommend this motel.

Room Tip: Rooms on right hand side as you drive in are quiet

A sleep in your car with a couple of pillows, or a sleep on the Beach in a sleeping bag, would beat this establishment hands down, my Wife and I had the displeasure of selecting this Motel on one of our recent trips down the Coast from Wollongong, to be fair the rooms were clean and acceptable, the court yard and parking area were in need of a proper clean and appeared not to have been cleaned for some time, still not enough to put us off staying, the price for one night for two of us was a bit rich at $118 but it was getting late 9PM and we needed some where to stay, and he knew it, hence the price, so we paid and our host Phil, and he stated as we headed for the room, not to worry about the road noise as the rooms were sound proofed against the road out the front, HMMMMMMMM inside the room there was an ensuite window to the main road with 3mm glass and a hollow core door, probably 3 ply to soundproof. It became obvious Phils comment was a little tongue in cheek, as most vehicles appeared to be in the room with you. Just remember this Motel is a long way from any real Marriott ????

Vicki L, Owner at Marriott Park Motel, responded to this review, December 18, 2012
We are sorry that you were disappointed with your room at the Marriott Park Motel. As we are new owners we have spoken to the previous manager Phil about your comments and he was extremely shocked by them. The rate he charged was the standard rate and well priced in comparison to other motels in Nowra and at no time has this motel tried to state that we are part of the Marriott chain. The park across the road is called "Marriott Park". Thank you for the comment about the room as all the rooms have recently been reburbished and we are particular about the cleanliness of them. The room you stayed in is the only room closest to the road and has had thousands of dollars spent on sound proofing and the ensuite window is now being addressed.

I stayed at the Marriott Park Motel, Nowra, and was absolutely impressed with the high standard of cleanliness, the available amenities and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The room was spotless, the decor gorgeous, Iron/Ironing Board Hairdryer Coffee/Tea Bikkies Milk Water Soap Shampoo Conditioner all provided and topped up every day. Room was cleaned every day and fresh towels/handtowels/bathmat provided - these were also of a very high standard of clean and fluffy. Bathroom/Toilet amenities were absolutely spotless; good strong shower with endless hot water supply. TV and reverse cycle aircon also provided. This motel is arguably one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. Would most definately stay there on my next trip South.

Room Tip: All rooms similar; all good; parking provided on site outside room; some have connecting doors to cr...

After being refused a room nearby (because we had a toddler) we stayed at the Marriott Park Motel and were pleasantly surprised. The room is spotless (have to agree with the review from Margaret S). There were extra towels and the reception staff were extremely friendly. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.
