Review of Bay Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Jan 2021via mobile
Walking by we noticed they had vacancies! We checked in at reception to book a room for Friday & Saturday night. The only room available was the loft apartment. I went straight on TripAdvisor & checked through the reviews. There was a recent terrible review on the loft apartment. So, we asked if we could view the room & were taken through it.

I can report the room is very dated say 70’s era & on the dark side, hence, it didn’t have that spotlessly clean feel about it. It did have good air conditioning in the small bed room. The large bathroom has a double hand basin although only one mirror. The kitchen & dining was a nice size & overall the loft felt spacious. Some adjoining office areas were blocked off which made the loft seem disjointed. The balcony was the perfect size & we were sold! We booked the room & paid $400 a night including free parking!

The only real negatives were the noise from the beach hotel late at night & the sounds of the garbage trucks in the early morning around 6AM.

The positives far out way the negatives, number one location easy access to all of Byron & that balcony! Has to be the best balcony in Byron! Nothing better than sitting on that balcony with a drink, seafood & pizza watching the ocean & the people of Byron doing their thing. Finally, not having to drive around find a park spot & pay for it is a big plus.

I have stayed in Byron plenty of times but this is the best motel experience we have had. We stayed the week of Christmas, hosts were so helpful, room so clean and location amazing. Will definitely be back!

This is the worst unit ever at $350 per night and bedrooms with views blocked off half a slider door opens only so get ready to suffocate.
It is disjointed and didn't even have adequate crockery see photographs.
Oh and even the light was broken overthe basin in the already dimly lit bathroom.
Any wonder the manager refused viewing the day before.
Absolutely disgusted....

This is always our go to in Byron Bay. Not only is it located in the most amazing area, but the owners always go above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable.

Considering it’s beachfront location, it’s always has surprisingly reasonable rates and is great value!!

The Bay Motel is in a perfect location and the price is right. Customer service at the front desk is really good.

However, it could use a bit better cleaning - especially in the bathroom.

The biggest problem I had with the motel is that they did virtually nothing to stop drunken guests with loud parties. While this sort of thing is to be expected in Byron Bay - this was extreme.

Only stayed 1 night but this was great! Very clean and well presented, friendly owner and so close to the fabulous beach. Wish we had stayed longer. Lots of places to eat. Recommend Miss Margarita Mexican restaurant, fabulous food and great for people watching.

Room tip: GPS may send you to the rear entrance, you need to be by the beach
