Stopped by here on a last minute trip down south, and was a lovely stay. Clean room, nice toiletries, no complaints. There is a little bit of noise from the road, so maybe bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, we did stay mid week so it might be noisier on the weekends. Short walk to restaurants and...

A Motel with approx 20 rooms over two levels. You are not right in the heart of the town but close enough to walk (15min leisurely walk). The rooms are clean and well appointed for the size and money with a very comfy queen sized bed. The bathroom was clean and functional with great water pressure in the shower, whilst...

Cleanest motel we had on the coastal road from Sydney to Melbourne. Shower stall was too tiny, I almost burnt myself as the water temperature changed rapidly and there was no space to get out of the water. We saw this place at Hotels.com for 81€ but were charged 150AUD. I thought the rate was supposed to be lower when...

We stayed in a twin share room no 1 on a Saturday night. We were lucky to get back to our motel after dining out by 8pm as the motel was full and there were no more available parking spaces, the people behind us had to park down on the Main Street. The reception was efficient. I hadn't stayed ther...

Thank you for your recent review Jules, We have a strictly one car space per room policy and sometimes it can be difficult to police, especially on a Saturday night. It was only ever $90 mid week for a single per night and of a Saturday night stay like yours it has been over $130 per night for quite some...

I was very happy with my recent stay at Motel 617. My room, although compact, was well laid out, attractive, comfortable and well equipped. The lady on reception was lovely - warm and helpful both during my phone booking and upon check-in. I wouldn't hesitate to book Motel 617 again and recommend it to others visiting Kiama.

Made to change rooms half way through a two day stay. Loud dripping noise kept us awake. Drilling, and hammering started at 6.25am. Management did not even care when we reported problems. Never again.

We have stayed here before and will do so again. It is clean, has great customer service, the people are very friendly and the motel is in a good, quiet location, although a little bit of a walk to the town centre, it is worth the peace and quiet.

If you are looking for a clean and safe room for a night or two, this is your place. Customer Service and the location is great. The room has the basics without the frills that would come at an additional cost. I was happy with my stay here.
