I chose our accommodation (6 nights) based on tripadvisor reviews and accommodation websites. Not easy to do as there doesn't seem to be universal agreement about any of the moderately priced acccommodation.
On arrival, however, I was delighted with our choice. Ningaloo Lodge is clean, quiet, just up the road (4 min walk) from the town centre - and everything we needed was available and in good working order. If I was to really look for fault, I'd say the rooms are small and probably not ideal if you have enormous suitcases... however, for their size they provide all you need: double bed, bedside tables with lamps, desk, small wardrobe, full length mirror, small fridge, TV, ceiling fan, ensuite toilet with shower, hooks on backs of doors, laundry basket and basket for your food.
The spacious, bright and airy communal kitchen is very clean and a pleasure to use. Tea, coffee and milk are provided free and there are fridges for things too big for your room fridge (eg fish you've caught).
The sparkling swimming pool is the size of a small back yard pool, and surrounded by palm trees, a table or two with really comfy chairs.
There are clean barbeques and tables in a lovely shaded courtyard, a recreation room with pool table and cycling machine, a communal lounge room with a big TV, sofas, chess board, tour info and a few books/mags. There's a laundry room and a good sized laundry line around the back.
The staff and visitors were friendly without being intrusive. Everyone was considerate - no rowdy people late at night (or during the day), no rubbish or cigarette butts lying about , no dirty dishes left in the kitchen.
I recommend this place without hesitation to couples young and old who want clean, convenient, perfectly adequate accommodation - and who don't expect a 5 star hotel sized pool and bedroom for the price of moderate self-catering lodge!
Admittedly, we visited Exmouth in April (school hols) when the weather was so perfect we'd have been happy staying in a cardboard box!
