Nice property near the waterfront. Room had Air conditioners which was good, bad thing was that turning it on made me sneeze like crazy. The room was new and in good condition. Can't fault anything really.

Great location. Hotel decor is definitely dated, but has all you need and was clean. The family room had a separate bedroom for us and 2 single beds in the main room for the kids. Kitchenette, tv, wifi, a/c in both rooms. Across the road from the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly.

What a wonderful place to stay. First we were greeted with a friendly lady at reception whom made our check in Quick & Easy & was very nice to our tired little boy even getting him to smile. The room was clean and fresh and the receptionist was very helpful with advice on nearby restaurants that were within walking distance....

We stayed here for one night in January 2017. It was a hot day, so when we arrived at our room, we turned the cold air on and then went out for a walk while our room cooled down. When we returned a couple of hours later, my two friends and I were dripping with sweat within about 90 seconds...

Thank you for choosing to stay with Southern Ocean Motor Inn. The motel changed ownership as of 2 February 2017. The new owner installed reverse cycle air conditioners in the remaining rooms (2 in each Family Room) to ensure comfort all year round. Once again, thank you for choosing to stay with Southern Ocean Motor Inn.

This appeared to be the last room available in Port Campbell and it was very good. The room was clean with everything you would need. Decoration was tidy if a little old. Clean linen and towels and a comfortable bed. The location is excellent for the beach, shops and amenities. I would recommend this motel without without hesitation.

We stayed two nights in a 3 people bedroom. Good size of the room, a little bit dark and old fashion, but it had a nice view and everything was clean. For a three stars motel is what I expected. Very close to restaurants and the beach and is only a few minutes from the 12 apostles.

Last minute booking. Approximately $150 for a double bed. Great location right across from the beach, close to shops but far enough away. Rooms cleanish. The bath could do with a good scrub, there were cigarette buts outside our room, and a 5 minute weed of the front garden would make a better impression. The actual room was a good...

This is a well located Motel as everything is walking distance, beach, cafes, restaurants. It's in a quiet location and there is different options on rooms - I had a room overlooking the water but there is a road in between. The large rooms have everything you would expect from a Motel as you can see from the photos. The...

We checked on line and this was about the only accommodation left. We did have to have a room upstairs but it did have views and a spa included. Good value and close to everything. Easy walk to shops and tourist attractions
