“We'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stayed with my partner over the long Easter holidays. Motel is being run by very friendly older couple.

We had been surprised by the room, it was recently renovated and with a new bed. Everything was neat and clean. All standard things has been included in the room. Most importantly there is a wireless coverage around the motel, my hubby can't live without.

Motel has great location close to the beach if you are after nice walks. Area is really quiet with nice swimming pool and BBQ area. It's not far from the Entrance as well. There is chinese restaurant around the corner or Diggers RLS club 200m further.

I really recommend the motel. Don't forget to try their breakfast which are great.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Jetty Motel again last Saturday night 16 March 13. I have reviewed this motel on a previous occasion, my first stay, and it still remains an excellent value for money stay....and one of the few accommodation options in the area that will allow you a 1 night booking.

As on the previous occasion I found the room to be quite spacious, clean, comfortable bed, telly that works, tea/coffee, small fridge, hair dryer...all the things one requires. No, the sheets weren't brand new, but neither were they thread bare (as someone said), but they certainly were clean and crisp! If you are planning ahead, ask for a room not facing the main road, but having said this, I had a front room last stay and did not sit up all night cursing the traffic, I slept soundly.

I have also read complaints that the motel is "nowhere near the water". I guess we all wish $110 p/n would buy us a waterfront room, but this is the real world. Tuggerah Lake is a short walk from the motel (and I mean 5 mins for an able bodied person) and a surfing beach would be no more than a 5 minute drive, the same drive to the Entrance waterfront, pelican feeding, markets etc. For the reasonable price, quality of the room, excellent reception service with a smile, I think the Jetty Motel qualifies as "close to Lake and Beach"!

All I can say is do yourself a favour and give the Jetty Motel a try, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I now would not stay anywhere else when visiting the Central Coast on a budget, but just to chat with the delightful reception chap I might even stay should I win Lotto :-)

Room Tip: If you are planning ahead perhaps ask for a room at the back. 12a has a water view!

We booked a 4 night stay at the Jetty Motel based on Trip Advisor good reviews, free WiFi and an excellent seniors price offer. It’s very easy to find being on the main road and the check in was friendly, pleasant and helpful.
Room 10 was fine although the design was a little dated. A queen size bed, desk, table and 2 chairs, wardrobe and sofa were provided. The bathroom was “cosy” while the hand basin and bench were part of the bedroom/kitchenette. Supplied were a kettle, toaster, cups, glasses, spoons and tea/coffee etc. in a little cabinet. A small fridge was also very handy. Later, I noticed a Tomizone WiFi card.
My WiFi suspicions were confirmed when we couldn’t log on. Inquiries to reception found that the “free” in-house WiFi doesn’t reach to the rooms further away from the office. Sitting outside the room it worked fine, but inside, there was no signal. The manager kindly offered to put us in a room nearer the office where reception was fine. However, I only booked this motel because it was offered under the Trip Advisor “Free High Speed Internet” category.
Our first night was fine with very little traffic noise, however, the noise of the in-wall air conditioner was a little disturbing. Breakfast is delivered to the room which is convenient .
We then moved to the alternate room 14 where WiFi reception was good. But with the WiFi reception came the traffic noise. While it was fairly quiet through the night, the noise became intrusive from about 6am.
The bathroom/toilet floor became totally wet during a shower because the curtain is not long enough to stop splashing across the floor. In addition, the large mirror above the hand basin is too low forcing me to stoop to shave while the light is mostly above the kitchen cabinet. Difficult!
In summary, Jetty Motel provides good value but some ATD (attention to detail) is required by the operators. Perhaps shifting their WiFi unit could help with room reception, or maybe a more powerful unit would fix it.. If you can put up with the minor inconveniences it is a good value motel.

Room Tip: For quiet, select back rooms, for WiFi go to the front

Booked for a couples weekend away. This hotel was one of the few on the NSW Central Coast that would take a booking for only one night, most want a minimum of two nights in summer. Our room (# 11) was very spacious, clean & quiet, despite being on a main road. Cost was $129 for a Saturday night. Spa pool was a welcome addition after dinner on a balmy evening. Communal kitchen, laundry & bbqs available. Our main gripe was the old noisy airconditioner which drowned out the TV even on the quietest setting, & made sleeping a little difficult. Also, no toiletries supplied except for soap, fortunately I had packed some shampoo & condiitoner. Handy to several restaurants and Diggers Club. Car needed for most other shops. Reception very helful for local information.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the rear, the further way from the street the better.

Drove up here for a weekend from Sydney. Can fault it. Good location, large spotless room, parking right in front of the room and very good breakfast. From our experience, definitely most comfortable in the area as we stayed in few other motels in Entrance.

Stopped here for one night after reading positive reviews, but we didn't feel it lived up to them. Very friendly staff and very clean rooms. Quite small compared to others we had stayed in for a similar price. Had to book 2 rooms for the family of 4 as no bigger room options were on offer. Because of this it was pretty expensive for what we got. Bathrooms appeared to be recently renovated, but rest of room was in original condition and quite dated. We found the kitchen facilities in a separate block as only small fridge, cups, and jug in room. Located on main road which we could hear in bed. Was expecting more from reading the other reviews.

Our family rooms was booked out and without booking we offer you other solution to accommodate you. Two separate rooms are always more expensive than one. . All our guest like our renovations of the bathrooms and toilets.We are only one of few hotels/motels who has a guest kitchen where you can cook ,bake or prepare your food. Big Fridge and Big freezer is also available as a all cuttlery,plates ,pots, glases and table. We hope to see you return for next holiday in the Entrance and look forward to welcoming you back.

We stopped here for one night only whilst driving to northern NSW. The motel is renovated as effectively as possible for the era it was built in and was very clean and comfortable. Parking is right at the front door. It is located within walking distance to restaurants & Digger’s RSL.
