Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Beds were clean and comfortable but bathroom and fridge were disgusting. Old molded stuff on the water jug which is your only water supply. Grout so dirty it instant stains the white bathmat. Dirty toilet and surround, cramped bathroom, shower door going opposite way to other, so have to squish in, tv hard to operate but once running Netflix and YouTube providd, even that was creepy- under some random dudes account. Smoking outdoors and some seedier looking patrons. Just rundown. There is an iron and small kettle if you dare but they are inconveniently packed away to discourage use. Near to beach which we liked. Lockable which was good.

Candice, we have hundreds of 4 and 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor, and Google all commending us on our cleanliness, facilities, location and friendly service. I don't think we are the ones with the problem!

We checked in late at night and Julie couldn’t do enough to help us out. The location of the motor inn fronting Corrigans Beach and reserve was spectacular and the nearby amenities - Pizza, Thai, IGA, Bottle shop, headland walk and picnic grounds made for the perfect stay. The room was really well appointed with a wonderful aspect over the bay.

The hotel is well priced and very well located. The room was large with a fully fitted kitchenette for making snacks. There's also a lovely little bakery just around the corner. The room also had a single bed as well as a full size comfortable bed. Everything was clean and well appointed. The lady on the front desk was very helpful and friendly and I was pleased to see an Australian flag on the wall for Australia Day. Definitely good value (and a tip is to book directly with the hotel as you save between $15 and $20 on the cost of the room).

Araluen was a lovely place to stay in a lovely location. The room was clean and well appointed with a fully equipped kitchenette. The large bed was comfortable (and there was a single in the room as well). The lady on the reception desk was very friendly and helpful and I enjoyed the whole experience. I arrived a few days before Australia Day and I was very pleased to see an Australian flag proudly displayed in reception. Good on you guys!

Booked last minute and was very happy when we turned up! Unlike the other places we looked at, the photos at this place were accurate and unfiltered. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Likewise, the location is amazing! The t.v and amenities were also great!

The unit (Kitchenette) had everything I hoped for. Fridge was large enough to accommodate for everything I wanted. AC, Toilets, Cutleries, Showers, Beds all were A, OK. Staff couldn't be any friendlier. We love the place and we'll definitely be coming back.
