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.

Every. Single. Thing. Was PERFECT! Beautifully apportioned. Hot strong shower. Generous kitchen. Cozy, comfortable bed. Added extras in all the right places - like a couple of beach towels, nice coat hangers, gorgeous toiletries and even a little t-bag dish. And beyond all this, the genuine warmth of the owners and staff. Cannot be beaten

This is an owner operated motel and they are ‘motel proud’!! Captain Huon is extremely well maintained and cared for. From manicured lawns to the smallest detail in the room. And seriously, The Captain Huon would have to be the cleanest motel I’ve ever stayed at. It just felt so hygienically clean and all with the added added extras (yes a double add) right down to the complimentary biscuits and the bathroom products. Location - 5/5 Recommend - 5/5 - highly Bed - 5/5 - extremely comfortable (with electric blankets and super soft blankets) Space - 5/5 huge Free wifi - not that you will need it Would I be a return customer - yes Even beach towels are supplied. Security - often for work I’m a solo traveller and for a female this place I felt safe and also my vehicle. Great accesses to the esplanade board walk. I’ll be back. I just hope there is availability. Note you can book this place online. Call and chat with the owners to make a reservation.

We had a wonderful stay in a self contained studio with a fully equipped kitchen, good bathroom, comfortable bed and views of the ocean. Greg and Nicky are super helpful and friendly, and the motel is well run and in a great location!

Spotlessly clean room and had everything you could need. Fully self contained and fully set up. There were even a couple of beach towels which is handy, given the beach is directly across the road. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. I honestly couldn't fault this place. I travel a bit for work and would highly recommend the Captain Huon.

Wow! What an amazing place to stay. We were so comfortable and at home here for our two day stay, and wish we could have stayed longer. Spotlessly clean and spacious accommodation, extremely well-designed. We loved the comfortable recliner chairs too. Very comfortable beds and excellent shower. Everything to the highest specification. The proprietor is excellent ‘front of house’, most helpful and available without being intrusive. Great location near to tanker jetty, and our room was very quiet. Free laundry. Amazing value. The absolute top of all the places we have stayed at during our Perth - Esperance trip.

Very nice room had everything we needed for self catering was very clean. Short stroll to shops and cafes and very nice walk along seafront which is just across the road. Although on esplanade it is very quiet there even in busy time of year. Only couple of criticisms got fed up with banging my head on the light on the bedhead and we didn't really need room cleaned everyday we thought if we didn't put sign out it wouldn't get done. The owners were very friendly and helpful would definitely recommend. Can't comment on their restaurant as it was closed when we were there.

We stayed at CHM over New Year for 5 days. The accommodation for 4 people was superb everything was immaculately cleaned and all utilities provided including your own washing machine and dryer and even the washing powder plus everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The bed was the most comfy bed I’ve slept in and the overall experience was fabulous. Perfect location too. Would highly recommend.

The Captain Huon Motel is right on the Esplanade near the Old Tank Jetty overlooking the harbour. The popular boardwalk along the Esplanade is very appealing for daily walks into town (not far) and beautifully landscaped with attractive wildflowers, also with seats and some fitness equipment along the way. I hope they are able to restore the Old Tank Jetty as it would be a wonderful tourist attraction to walk out on. Esperance has a French history. Captain Huon was the Captain of the French ship named the Esperance when it visited in the late c18th. We had a front 2nd level room with a great view. The furnishings are somewhat dated but the room was very clean and warm, and the bed comfortable. It was serviced every day. The kitchen could be arranged differently as all the crockery is under the sink - hard to see and get out. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with advice of where to go, eat and visit. Their motel restaurant wasn't open as it was not yet the busy tourist season. We got our own breakfasts although available if we'd wanted. We would stay there again if we returned.

Stayed for a week while business. I've stayed in a lot of hotels/motels in my time and this must be one of the cleanest ever. A little dated perhaps but the room was beautifully made up every day and all toiletries replaced. Nice to have a proper kitchenette. Situated across from the sea front and an easy walk into the town center. Helpful and knowledgeable owners.
