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.

We stayed on the family loft. The kids loved having their upstairs room with a single bed each so no fighting. Nicely renovated and included a small kitchenette and dining table. Across the road from the beach and easy walk to town. Nice outdoor bbq area too.

Could not fault this place, actually the water is very hot but better than never gets hot . Perfect location to all things in Apollo Bay and there is no driving to go out to dinner. Coastal Motel is the place to stay in Apollo Bay and if we come back we will be staying at Coastal Motel!
