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.

I stayed at the Coastal Motel for 2 years and I highly recommend it. The hosts are fantastic and the rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. Very close to beach, town, pubs and restaurants. It has a variety of room sizes and great BBQ area.

Newly renovated. Modern, spacious rooms ( more like a little cottage). Extremely spacious with a kitchen and very large bathroom. A desk, a kitchen table and 2 comfortable chairs with coffee table. Would be able to stay a week or more without a problem. There is also a guest BBQ area. Staff lovely too.

Love the bottom half how big and spacious it was. Very clean all around the area and great walking distance to everywhere. The only thing is that the air conditioning does not touch the lofts. So got very hot. Needs a fan

We stayed at the Coastal Motel for a few days in early February and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Motel is perfectly located on the main street so all the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Our room was very clean and the bathroom and little kitchen were both well equipped. The beds and pillows were super comfortable! Parking is on-site and just outside your room. I recommend booking through Agoda as we got the best price - but the price direct or through booking.com is super reasonable for what you get. Had a great stay - will be back!!

We had a lovely experience at the Coastal Motel. The room was clean and comfortable. Everything was in working order except for a little bit of a dodgy bathroom sink plug which did not detract from the experience at all. There is an assigned parking space for all the rooms which I really appreciated. It is located on the main strip and just a few minutes walk from shops and cafes. We didn’t need to interact much with the staff however they were very friendly and helpful when we did.

The location is perfect, on the beachfront, we upgraded to the two storey 3 bedroom unit, it is huge, well appointed, full kitchen, dining room, lounge with 2 large leather lounges, two bathrooms, 5 TVs, all rooms are spacious, modern, clean , with extremely comfortable beds.

The best part of this motel were the reception staff Apin and a lady I didn't get the name of (who may have been the owner).. We needed to change our booking and there was no hassle in getting a refund. Also we needed to get some important documents printed out and again this was done with friendliness and good will. Our deluxe king room was beautifully fitted out with a great bed and lovely kitchenette.. The only downside was that the very 'smart' bathroom had one of those glass showers screens that leak and the drainage was so poor it was almost impossible not to flood the bathroom. It is in a great location opposite the beach and has a handy outside barbecue area and shower.

We came across this wonderful Motel right opposite the Apollo Bay beach after having just come from another property we had booked for 3 nights in Apollo Bay that was just so disgusting we couldn't stay there & as it was late afternoon we were desperate to find a place that we could afford after being refused a refund from the previous property. It was like a Godsend seeing this Motel. I called the property & spoke to Jeta & she was so lovely & the price was so great for the 3 nights & when she said to come take a look at the room because she had only one left of that type for a couple, we said we could come straight away. We were literally parked outside. Jeta was just so fabulous & so friendly. She told us she likes it if a guest sees the room first to see if they like it & that it had a beautiful King Bed & everything was fresh & clean. As soon as we saw it & it was opposite the beach on the ground floor we were so rapt & took it straight away. Jeta chatted with us & said at night you can't hear any traffic & she was so right. We had a beautiful peaceful sleep in the comfy King Bed. The ensuite was lovely & large & had a rain shower head which was perfect. Can't compliment this place or the owner enough it was just so clean, comfortable & relaxing. Its so close to everything, literally a stones throw from restaurants, supermarkets, the marina with a fish'n chip shop overlooking it, the beach across the road. The only downfall was that covid came along & spoilt it as Victoria went into a 5 day lockdown & we left to get back home, but Jeta was so great that she refunded us for the day/nite we couldn't be there. We are so going back to stay once things settle. Thank you for a lovely nights stay & your friendly warm nature. Wish i took some pictures to post on here.
