I stayed here for three nights. I arrived early and the owner let me occupy my room around 10 am, well before the official check-in time. The owner is very friendly and a keen motorcyclist who will talk bikes for as long as you want! The Room was very good. It was clean, had good mattresses and linen. Toilet and...

Very easily locatable hotel. The rooms are simple but sweet. Everything is nicely put together. Courteous hotel management. Availability of Swimming pool. Park your car in your proximity. Free Wi-Fi. Don't expect lavish in such a budget.

Motor Inn close to Salamander Bay. Near to Salamander Bay shopping centre. Close to Nelson Bay. There is a marina in the next street and one at Nelson Bay. Shoal Bay is next to Nelson Bay, where there are many attractions.

Recently attended a wedding at The Anchorage down the road, but wanted somewhere cheap to stay for one night. This basic hotel did the job, nothing fancy but clean and sufficient. Could prob do with a bit of an upgrade to basic amenities but otherwise fine. Friendly owner.

We only stayed for 1 night. The motel is in a desperate need of some TLC. Doors don't close properly, fan only works on high and is very noisy, pool was extremely dirty. We only stayed there as it was close to the Anchorage Marina (we did a sunset cruise) highly recommend the cruise and didn't want to pay $300...

Stayed for 3 nights. This place isn't too fancy and is perfect for people who just want a bed to sleep on and asking for no more. Came to Nelson bay on holidays, not going to spend the whole day in doors. Comfortable, affordable and nice friendly owner. Best of all, 5 mins to everything around the Nelson Bay area....

I'm a repeat customer of this Motel. I find it affordable and conveniently located to beaches and shopping. It is affordable and clean. The owner, Peter is a character and always ready for a chat and a laugh. If you want a comfortable, affordable place to stay in Port Stephens, look no further!!!

Something like out the 1900s. Run down. Front door to room didn't lock properly Peter the motel owner was rude. We stayed for two nights unfortunately and couldn't leave Nelson Bay due to heavy rainfall and flooding. The maid made up our bed and came in our room after our first night when we didn't even put the sign outside...
