I stayed at the Bay Motel for 7 nights. I loved it. Right across the road from the beach and park and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. You have access to the back lane which literally brings you to cafes for breaky, lunch or dinner. Rooms have been updated and are very comfortable and clean. Sarah and Rod...

We were greeted by a friendly lady who works at the Motel. She was most helpful in sorting our room as we had a small fridge leak which she sorted straight away. The motel had parking for our car, it was a bright clean modern room. Perfect location for the beach and great for other amenities such as food and...

Sarah and Rod are great. Awesome locale. Updated rooms. Easy stumber back from the bars and restaurants. Why stay any where else? I lead groups of learning disabled adults from the USA. If the hotel was bigger I'd take them here. Unfortunately, the place is the perfect size unless you're with a huge group.

The Bay motel probably has the best location in Byron Bay if you are looking to be near the main beach, restaurants and shopping. The rooms are comfortable and modern. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

What a great place to stay. Close to absolutely everything in Byron bay. Short walks to the main beach, some of the best restaurants in the area and the great shops Byron has to offer.
