I really thought it was abandoned.....I have never seen anything like it......only wish I could forget the smell! The mail order bride who barely spoke English said "get out while I cover smell with spray"..... Bedspreads were threadbare, bar fridge was from before electricity was invented and falling apart, Looked like something to be rented 'by the hour', no milk, coffee, tea, or wifi that was on ad, rusty car body, boat, planks of wood, rotting mangoes, overgrown and the whole place looks NOTHING like pictures!!

Stayed: February 2015, travelled as a couple

Terrible manager, disgusting facilities, rooms unhygienic. We stayed here 24/01/2015 room number 5. We checked in last minute due to car troubles, we paid for a room and got the one next to the managers office. During our time there a friend that lived close by stopped by to help fix the car as we were travelling back to Sydney the next morning. Whilst returning back from the car we found the manager with his ear to the door trying to eavesdrop. I stood and watched him do this for 5 minutes, I then confronted the creep and asked what he was doing he then replied "that there is one to many persons in the room" which we replied "this is our friend that is fixing our car, he is not staying" we ended up paying him extra money just to have a guest over for no more than an hour.
Apart from that the room had to of been the most unhygienic place I have ever stayed.
PLEASE NOTE WE WOULD OF SLEPT IN THE CAR HAD WE OF KNOWN WHAT A CREEP HE WAS AND HOW DISGUSTING THE ROOM WAS.(WEIRDO)
ALSO WE ONLY GAVE ONE STAR BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO IN ORDER TO LEAVE A REVIEW OTHERWISE THEY WOULD OF RECEIVED A BIG 0!!!!!!! DO NOT STAY

Room Tip: Just don't come here!! Sleep in your car

This motel should be cheaper than what they charge. Very poor in every regard. No milk provided for tea and coffee, I had to ask for batteries for the tv remote (which I didn't get), door did not lock properly and everything was very run down. The biggest turn off was the broken smoke alarms! I mentioned this at the office and was told " the girls always take the batteries out because they are scared of being taped". MMM, they didn't tell me they rent the rooms by the hour also.

Room Tip: It wouldn't matter.

Lets begin with the obvious. If you loved 1985 then you will love the decor of the rooms. I had forgotten the joy of getting up out of bed to turn the tv on or off (and waiting a moment for the tube to warm up in it). I was unable to park in the space allocated to my room because it was occupied by a vehicle which from all outward indications has not moved in several years. Another space was occupied by a boat which I can only assume has actually at some point in its past seen genuine water. High Speed Wireless internet seemed to be somewhere between adsl1 and dial up.
The fan has three speeds, barely moving, warp 6 and warp 8. There's no screen doors. Many fittings both inside and out had a delightful patina of rust etc. There is a general feeling of former glory everywhere.
However, the people were lovely. They were welcoming, hospitable, patient with my questions and were really quite genuine and polite. Would I stay here again? Yes. Absolutely. This is not champagne on a beer budget, this is beer on a coffee budget. The beach is so, so close. The public transport availability is there, and let's face it - you are not going there to live in the room 24/7 but to shower and sleep and explore the world around. The shower was hot. The fridge was cold. The bed was a bed. The chair was a chair.
I went. I stayed. I payed not much.
