Just needing a place to sleep on overnight road trip this motel has been newly renovated and was reasonable priced considering its location. Staff were friendly, room was air conditioned, bed was big and comfortable and the room is a decent size and a car space is allocated to you in front of your room. It is half way between...

My partner and I stopped here recently on a trip up north. Check in and out were both easy, the room was basic but clean (nice big TV though!), and the location was nice and quiet. Word of warning, the bed (while being a large king size) was very soft and felt as if it was only made of foam....

The lady at reception was rude and condescending. She reinstated to us 4 times that we must park in our designated parking spot for our room. She tried to tell us check out was required by 9:30 and when questioned said that it was in fact 10am. Parking for this motel is a nightmare as they have crammed more spots...

Provided us with dinner recommendations and were very friendly. Will definitely stay there again. Super close to the beach too and walking...

The prices are really good for what you get. The beach across the road was beautiful especially during sunrise and sunset. This is a really good place to stop over. The only thing I would recommend is to double check if your room comes with parking if you need it. The staff were nice and went out of their way...

Great service and great location. Walking distance to marina and restaurants. Room clean but very basic. Tiniest of bathrooms and lack of bedside tables. Avoid if light sleeper. Can hear Everything going on in the hotel. Parking a very tight squeeze. Pool not fit to swim in.

We were on a road trip back to Sydney and needed a bed for the night and picked the surf beach motel. The rooms aren't too big but good value for what you pay, had a hair dryer and iron (which is exactly what we needed ;) !) Great customer service at reception, the owners are very nice and welcoming....

This is a great place for an overnight stay or for a short trip to Coffs Harbour. It is located across the road from the beach, close to a bowling club and bar, a short walk to a shopping mall and a short 5 minute drive to the city centre or the Big Banana. The room I stayed in was...
