“Good, clean, functional”
Reviewed 6 March 2011

This motel isn't modern and fancy, rather it is cheap and basic but in a sensational location just a stones throw from the ocean.
If you are aseeking five star facilities, try one of the local serviced apartment complexes.
But if you plan to spend the day enjoying the town and just need a place to stay, this is your ideal spot. The lady working there seemed to enjoy her job which is a welcome change for this traveller!

Reviewed 31 October 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed overnight here on a road trip from Brisbane to Sydney. We were looking to save some money and came across this place as the cheapest for a 1 night stay here in forster, at about $85 for the night. The place definitely falls into the 'no frills'category, which is fine.. but at minimum, I expect cleanliness.. which was certainly lacking. The shower had what appeared to be pubic hair on the floor, the bed sheets had stains and small holes in it. We stayed here on a rainy sunday night and the motel was clearly not full, but she placed us on the 2nd floor, with no elevator.. so we were stuck dragging large bags up and down steps, in the rain. The window did not lock, so one could easily open the window, stick your hand in and unlock hte door. Even the "phone" was missing the piece that you talk into, and the wires to the wall were cut. Shady! Thankfully the town itself felt safe, otherwise we would have been out of there as soon as we checked in. As it was, when we left for dinner, we brought our laptops with us.. and propped a chair up against the door before we went to sleep. The bed was tiny and uncomfortable. The only good thing about this hotel was the location across the street from the water.
