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.

Extremely noisy. Wednesday night stay. Hotel website said restaurant was closed. On arrival restaurant sign states it’s open from Wednesdays during summer. From 5pm there was live music, loud crowds of people, shouting, yelling and having a good time. All good. Except noise does not cease at close time of 9pm. Called hotel after hours reception. They have zero control over the restaurant. Said they would send an email! Seriously!!!! Do not stay here if you would like a quiet costal town relaxing evening.

The Med (I.e. Mediterranean) has a Mexican menu and Thai cutlery. The staff are very pleasant but unfortunately the food is poor. It should be say, Greek or Spanish cuisine - kebabs, feta salads, paella, olives, etc

We are driving up from Tassie to North Qld and decided to stay here for a night but as it is so lovely we are staying another. We have the Disabled room which has everything anyone could want. Bathroom is particularly well thought out. Overall comfort is6 star. When we do this mad mad bolt again Hobart to Hervey Bay in 4-6 days we’ll make sure we have a few nights off here.

Sensational. I had been referred by a friend as we wanted to stop in on our way to Byron Bay for a rest. We are so glad we did. From the first call to book on the day, to our divine (upgraded room) to meeting the lovely Lynn who was servicing the rooms we were thrilled I called 2 hours prior to arriving and spoke to a fabulous representative. When advised it was the first night of our honeymoon she congratulated us and was so warm and kind. Upon arrival the delightful lady upgraded us and welcomed us to The Med. We enquired about accessing pool towels, she went out of her way to pop them by the pool for us while we settled into our gorgeous room. The room was divine and in keeping with the vibe of the motel. We met Lynn on our way out for breakfast and she enquired if we were happy with our stay. She was genuine and delightful. A fabulous ambassador for The Med. We were chatting and expressed interest in the Penthouse. Lynn welcomed us to have a look. She took time to show us around and point out options also within the rest of the property. We are now planning a return trip with friends

We really enjoyed out one night stopover here. Loved the decor and design. Loved the cactus garden too. Bed & shower were great, loads of room in the room and the bathroom. Everything was clean & in good working order. We asked for a quiet room, and got room 11 which was completely quiet. Granted there weren't too many others staying here at the time. If a group had been using the BBQ area it might have been a different story. We had dinner in the restaurant downstairs & loved the convenience of having somewhere great to eat on site, since this was just a stop over for us. I wouldn't stay here for a long time, or if I was after a beach holiday, but it was perfect for what we wanted.

Don't let the white walls and pink trim fool you, this motel is tired and in need of some TLC. Being super excited to finally get out of Sydney after lockdown, the Med looked like the perfect place for my Boyfriend and I to stop on our way to Byron Bay. Unfortunately when we got to our room we were instantly disappointed. I'd booked a Deluxe Room but there was nothing deluxe about it. The room was small and dirty. As a Covid safe measure the Med did not having anyone at reception, so it was difficult to let someone know about the cleanliness of the room. The room was extremely overpriced for what it was. If you are looking for a night in Crescent Head save yourself and book somewhere else.

If there's a coffee-table book of old Australian motels that have been given a new lease on life, I'd bet that The Med gets at least a big photo. It was a tasteful nostalgia -- you know, those 1970's or early 80's motels by the highway, Mack trucks burling by and the hospital-grade breakfast tray popped through the wooden door. Except this time, there was all the nostalgia, but none of the experience of old. Walking into a renovated room, the minimal furniture and paint strokes still fresh. Renovated motels can be better than new motels -- the décor and flooring is new, with the benefits of well-built full-brick structures. The location is great -- close enough to the action and bustle, but far enough to remain quiet. A handy Mexican restaurant at front was pretty convenient. A pleasant surprise was fresh linen each day, just in case you don't love the feeling of soggy, smelly towels. If I were to visit Crescent Head again unencumbered with kids and big luggage, I would definitely ask for an upstairs room. And definitely use that brand new BBQ area.

After reading some of the negative reviews about this place, I was a bit sceptical. But my stay was fantastic!! The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. My room had been renovated beautifully, the bed was comfortable, and there were even complimentary snacks! I had dinner at the restaurant which has a tex-mex menu. The food was delicious and well priced. And once again, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. It was like staying in a classic, yet modernised Californian Motel! I only stayed one night. I can’t wait to go back and stay longer!!
