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.

Only stayed here for one night on our trip down the coast. Check in was simple with friendly staff. Room was clean but no plates provided even though there was a microwave and toaster. They would provide the if you requested them but not much help if reception is closed. Ended up putting our toast on the microwave turntable. We didn't get to use the pool but looked clean and well maintained. A short walk to the beach. There are restaurants around and we can highly recommend the Hoey Moey. All in all a pleasant stay and would stay again.

Sadly former owners are now gone and not as good. Reception staff were never there. Either they were off site or just disappeared. You could buzz and still no one. Room was adequate, microwave, toaster and kettle but no plates. Better places in same street

A tired motel could use a bit of updating. The rug was very dirty. Good location to area attractions and food availabilities. Room amenities were okay in terms of coffee making, etc. Easy access from the highway. Would not recommend to others.

Value for money just wasn't there. Although the room was clean, it was extremely dated and at almost $200 for the night, I wasn't impressed. Extremely old bathroom, cold and old fashioned brick walls in the interior, it's way overpriced at $200 / night. I've stayed at many modern motels far superior to this and paid much less. Would be looking for better bang for buck on my next stay.

First and last time. My family and I had booked to stay one night (3 rooms) at the end of December 2023. We were checking in past the office hours so the staff kindly left instructions by email about how to check in ourselves. The rooms were tidy and full of enough amenities. The shower temperature was a little sensitive but had great pressure and the a/c was easy to use. There was a lot of dust on the coat hangers in the cupboard. When checking out the staff were kind enough to keep all of our luggage until we arrived back later to catch a train. When we arrived back around 3pm, the manager (lady behind the desk) said there was a $50 dollars charge for an extra cleaning fee for one of the rooms. This was not a big deal, she said she had photos as evidence but in reality, we had a taxi waiting and a train to catch and our bags to pick up so simply I didn’t have the time to argue about it. It was easier to literally pay the luggage ‘ransom’ and be on our way. The issue was her tone, choice of words and demeanour. She called it ‘disrespectful’ and hoped that ‘they don’t live like that at home’. Without needing to see the pictures (and I don’t doubt the messy state of the room) to my knowledge there was no broken or damaged items and no spilt liquids. The point being, what was the extra ‘charge’ for? There was nothing more needed than a few extra minutes plus a vacuuming needed to clean them. I worked in the hotel industry many years ago and whilst annoying, as far as I know, it’s not a crime to leave a messy room. The ‘poor cleaning staff’ she talked about seemed very laid back, strolling about the premises and leaving fresh linen and towels directly on wooden benches outside the rooms. How little cleaning do they want to do? And those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I take issue with the living habits my family being called into disrepute by a slow, clearly obese and nasty person. I’ve lived, travelled to and worked in many countries all over the world in my 43 years and this was hands down one of the worst attitudes I’ve ever seen. I simply wanted to get out of there, so I paid for the money for the bag-jacking and left. I was tempted to not even bother write this, until I found not only all the other 1 star reviews, but even better the nasty, vitriolic, comical, sarcastic and pathetic responses from management directly below the comments; lots of exclamation points, caps locks, accusations and final sarcasms, but no charm, wit or intellect. I wonder what I’m gonna get at the end of this? Will she sarcastically wish me a good week? In my group of 8, 7 were Japanese and when she alluded “this is now THEY should live when they’re in OUR culture”, I’m imagining, even anticipating, a small dose of racism too at the end of her inevitable response! To anyone reading this, don’t bother stay here, or, if you want to poke fun at the dragon, have at it!!!

Great place to stay in Coffs Harbour! Really friendly team welcomed us to clean and comfortable room. Room was quiet and air conditioned, great for sleep on the hot nights. Lovely pool area to chill or play with the kids. Location central to beach and restaurants. Will stay again, thank you!

Great value for the money...Service excellent, rooms extremely clean and beds comfortable. Almost instant hot water. Parking a little tight but who cares. One of the best, most affordable motels in Coffs.

The people on reception were lovely and gave us a ground floor room when we asked, having arrived late in the afternoon with no booking. However the rooms are NOT soundproof! We could clearly hear a conversation that went on til well after ten o’clock, despite the door and window being closed. Our room was supplied with a microwave, kettle and toaster but no cutlery or crockery apart from glasses and coffee mugs. But the bed was good and the shower excellent.

We stayed here for two nights & had the best experience. The room was spotless, comfortable beds & a piping hot shower in a newly renovated bathroom. The gentleman who served us on reception was very accommodating as we had to short notice an extra night stay, thank you. The location is perfect & puts you a short walk to beaches, 5min drive to surf club & a 3min drive to the shopping centre. There is also a pool that we will utilise on our next stay.

Stay away from this hotel, they tends to cancel your stay at last minute without notice. Poor management and organisation. We booked with this hotel months ago and two days before leaving, we tried to confirm our stay via phone or email on numerous time and no reply, We finally received a reply and confirmation on Friday morning before we leave on Monday, but later in the afternoon we were told our book had been cancelled, or they cannot confirm our stay at all.
