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.

We were looking at Byron but we’d left it late to book well in advance before coming up for the school holidays and the prices were crazy high so we looked further afield and found this place. Great price and not too far from all the places we wanted to see. The room was very quiet at night and the beds were comfy. Bonus was they have a coffee pod machine in the room which meant we could have a caffeine hit first thing.

Booked without much research and was a golden find ! Stayed in the family room which was large and spotless, wonderful hosts and fantastic location. Easy drive to Brunswick Heads and flat cycle off the main road and on to cycle path through Marshalls Creek to Ocean Shore Beach. Also easy flat cycle to the famous Billinudgel Hotel and 15 minute walk for great coffee (and plants) at Enchanted Wood nursery. We had come from Byron, this area and the people a welcome relief.

We stayed 4 nights. Current owner operator couple very pleasant and helpful.
Rooms basic, but clean and functional. Bed is very comfortable king size. Parking and access is great.
Rooms have toaster, microwave and basic utensils so making your own breakfast and reheating meals not an issue.
Overall, would recommend to anyone who wants a no nonsense bed and base.

Ocean Shores motel was our most favourite place to stay. Linda and Rob were exceptional hosts. They have moved on.
The property was always beautifully kept and presented
To see it is now painted dank miserable grey is very disappointing.
The aesthetics are unappealing, the colour is off putting.
Clearly the owners have no understanding of the importance of aesthetics nor how much colour affects emotional mental health and wellbeinb.

Room was large and quiet. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Got great recommendation for activities and amazing food. The motel is perfect if you travel as it is close to the main road so it is easy to get to. Lovely place to sit in the afternoon and chill out around pool or having cup of tea outside while enjoying the nature around.

What great hosts. Super friendly and informative. Good local knowledge and tips. We had a little incident with one of the Children and the owners couldn’t have been more helpful. Rang the medical centre for us, and then advised us of alternates. Helped my wife out with a bottle of milk while I was off at the hospital. Thanks so much! Rooms are generous size, although a little old fashioned. Quiet and sooo dark in the rooms at night! Well positioned away from the hustle. Thanks.

.This motel is in a fantastic location for a stopover while travelling. It is just off the M1. It would make a great base for visiting the hinterland towns like Mullumbimby etc. We stayed in the family room and Linda was just so lovely at assisting us with our travel plans. The room was clean and quiet and just a quick drive to local shops and beaches. The free quality wifi and smart tv were a bonus.

I had a terrible experience at the Ocean Shores Motel. The hotel was plagued with a foul smell that made it difficult to breathe and the manager was extremely rude and unhelpful. I would strongly advise against staying at this hotel and instead look for other accommodations in the area. It was a complete waste of money and I was extremely disappointed with my stay.

Rob & Linda were absolutely wonderful as I was stranded because the M1 was closed due to flooding. I cannot thank them enough as I was also traveling alone. I was only 1 hour from home so that made it a bit harder. We had no communication either and that was also very hard too. At one stage we had no power or communication, that was very hard as well. Rob & Linda lit up the barbie for breakfast for us all. Linda also rang my daughter to let her that I was safe. All I can say is a big thank you to them.

I recently stayed at Ocean Shores Motel and just wanted to say Linda and Rob are wonderful people and could've been more accommodating. Good location close to shopping centre and golf club. Great amenities as well. Thanks Linda and Rob. If I'm ever up that way again I will definitely be staying there!!
