Great Location!!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Apr 2019
This little motel would have to be the closest to the Byron city centre. It is a very small traditional motor lodge, probably built in the 70's or 80's and probably has not been renovated at all since then. So, lets just say it's not the Hilton. Plus, it will cost quite alot for a motel, due to the fact that the location is brilliant and particularly if you're stay during NSW or Queensland school holidays.

In saying all that though, we found it fairly clean and tidy for a basic motel - staying in a queen + single room with a kitchenette - pretty much everything provided to make meals, etc. We have read the bad reviews and have not had anything similar to complain about.

I could imagine that this place and management would get some rude and disruptive customers. However, it's important to remember this is a basic service, not a Sheraton.

This would be a great little motel to purchase and renovate (potential business people, listen up) - it has so much potential - room by room, one by one, with a business loan, the owner could transform it without too much cash injection.

There are companies around that can transform a room or bathroom with paint and a good clean. So, that's all it really needs a basic room update, some new toilets/showers and some gardens outside the window. Honestly, with very little effort this place could shine and charge alot more for the location. I hope the owner is reading this - as it's important to recognize that this little place is a 'jewel in the rough'.
Date of stay: April 2019
Room Tip: Best to grab a kitchenette room, if you are a couple or family - making meals is easy.

I have never met a more ignorant man in all my life and his attitude is disgusting.. his customer service is a disgrace and it baffles me how he has made it this far in life with such a horrible personality.. the rooms arent to bad but i wouldn't stay in the place again if i was paid to.. its a shame people like him work in this industry that can affect a persons holiday

By motel standards, and we have stayed in a few, this was one of the best in terms of room quality and size. We spent a very comfortable night here. It is very close to the town, restaurants and beach. However, don't bother with the breakfast which was not up to scratch.

Only stayed one night in a Queen Room. Had a small kitchenette, onsite parking and is really close to city centre. Room was decent enough, bathroom is very dated but it was clean and we really only needed a bed and shower for the night as we were passing through. It was very expensive for the quality of the room but they can probably charge what they like for their location.

As a motel the place is quite decent - clean and large rooms, has a fridge and a table to eat. Don't expect anything fancy and bring your own shampoo :-) It has a free parking and a small swimming pool.
The location is very good, 5 min walking to the Byron Bay center.and another 3 min to the beach. So if you need a place to stay for a night it works fine, but I wouldn't recommend this for a long holiday stay. Note we were here right before Christmas the room was expensive, certainly not the price I'd pay for this type of motel...

So convenient to shops and restaurants! Good WiFi and A/C. Slightly outdated bathroom but clean. Manager allowed us to park there for a few hours after morning checkout so we could walk around town one last time.
