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.

Great location. Water views over the road. Easy walk down the street. Very clean rooms and outside areas. Good size room and facilities. BBQ and pool area. Very friendly and approachable hosts. A great feature for no extra cost-if you are staying more than one night you can have your room refreshed when you go out for the morning. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we’ll be back.

Had a lovely experience at this motel. It’s clean and very well cared for - the owners really look after the guests, even cleaning your car wind and rear screens on the day of departure. Very friendly, informative and a real delight to deal with.
Our room was a ‘suite’ with a great seating area and table and chairs for us to sit and have cold cuts and wine in the evenings.
We would have preferred a king bed and there is plenty of room for one, perhaps at the next makeover? That’s the only negative comment I would make and it’s personal preference so trivial in the scheme of things.
If we ever head back to Lakes Entrance, we would only want to stay here

The motel was very clean. The owners were very friendly and were willing to give their time on suggestions about dining, places to visit, etc. This is the only motel I have experienced where the owner cleans your car windscreens in the early morning. What a great service!

We spent a night here recently with the grandkids in a family suite. The motel is located perfectly opposite the sheltered beach. A comfy queen bed in the main room and three single beds in an adjoining bedroom made for a very peaceful and relaxing stay. Breakfast was huge and beautifully cooked, even though my grandson swiped all my bacon.

The pool was a hit with the kids and the whole motel is really clean and well maintained. Lovely friendly hosts made our stay a real pleasure.

I only stayed one night but upon arrival I was welcomed by Michelle and provided with fresh milk (and biscuits in the room) for an eagerly anticipated cup of coffee after a four-hour drive. Although an older style motel, the room was very clean and well looked after and provided everything that you needed for a comfortable stay. The bed/mattress excellent and provided a good nights sleep. The towels and face washers were surprisingly thick and the shower had very good water pressure. Thanks also to Kristian for cleaning both my front and back windscreens on my car, very welcome for the continuation of my travels. The Motel is easily within walking distance of the shops and restaurants/takeaways. The only negative that I would comment on is that as the motel is older, so is the plumbing and while my shower was excellent, the sounds coming from the water pipes when the shower next door was used, reverberated into my unit, but it didn't last long and I simply turned up the volume of the TV during that time. Despite this, I would definitely contemplate staying at this Motel when thinking of returning to Lakes Entrance.

One night stay in Lakes Entrance. Good clean affordable accommodation within walking distance of amenities, restaurants, beach and bush walk. Car parking on site with the owner cleaning the car windscreen on the morning of departure. Would have stayed longer if time allowed.

Very clean, walking distance to CBD, good bed, shampoo/conditioner and shower cap. Microwave, fridge with a small freezer, cutlery and crockery.
Breakfast very reasonably priced. Very friendly and helpful proprietors.
Also it has laundry facilities which is a bonus when travelling.
An extra is coming out to your car and the windscreen has been washed.
I would happily recommend this motel to all.
Loved it.

Very nice motel to stay at - room was clean and comfortable. Location is ideal, not far from the beach and places to eat.

Michelle at the desk was very professional, knowledgeable and a good conversation - owners will also clean your car's windscreens in the morning.

Am more than happy to stay here again.

We have been staying at this very comfortable motel for 4 days. Extremely clean with little kitchenette and microwave.
We came out to our car this morning and our very dirty windscreens had been cleaned front and back. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Couldn't fault this place. Older style building as so many country motels are but owners had made the most of it with fresh paint, linen etc. Very clean and tidy. Warm & welcoming hosts. Bright and light bathroom. Scrambled Eggs for breakfast were good too.

Answer from Cunningham S
Thank you for your enquiry. It would be a tight fit if you put a chair in these rooms as they have the enclosed shower screen. However, we do have a Disability Room with open shower access for a shower chair. This room also has the adjustable hand held shower head. I hope that this helps. Please feel free to send another enquiry or call should you have any further questions.
Answer from Cunningham S
We do have a disability suite which allows wheel chair access. It has a ramp into the room, bathroom with curtain showers and hand held/adjustable shower head. All our rooms are ground level. The bedding in the room is 1x Queen Bed and 1x Single Bed. I hope that this information is of help to you.
