I spent one night at the motel. Overall ok , noting exceptional but it was clean. The heater was on 30 min timer which was quite annoying as it was a cold night. Parking was enough but that was low season so I don't think all the rooms were full. Friendly staff. Free wifi. Close to beach, and food shops.

Thankyou for your review. Yes, the Heaters are on a 1 hour timer if I am correct, which was set in place before we arrived. most of the rooms have reverse cycle air conditioning, all have air conditioning, and the spare blankets are located in the cupboard. We are looking to take off the timers, although the rooms can get...

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Hawaiian Sands. We stayed there on 2 separate occasions. Both times, the rooms were very good. Large flat screen tv's, fridge, microwave, free wifi internet etc. But a lot of motels offer these things. What made this place stand out were Melanie and Kai. Melanie & Kai were great hosts....

Thankyou for your review. We are getting so much positive feedback from customers about the pub across the road its amazing. The huge changes, new modern decor, lighting and atmosphere is definitely a big bonus for the whole area.... and is becoming the most popular place in Coffs Harbour to eat.

Thankyou for your review. We will review the checkout time in the future, although we love our options of early arrival times, as not many motels offer this. We are flexible on request, although generally charge a $20 fee for any time up till 11 oçlock, and $30 till 12. This allows us to pay the cleaner. Mel

Thankyou for your review. Just to correctly inform future guests, our fee for late departure is $20 untill 11, not $20 per half hour. Although we are flexible with late departures until 10am on occassion, it depends on the occupancy the next day, and whether there are people coming into the room. At peak times and holiday times, we try...

We stayed here for a night for work - easy to book and check in. Yep the rooms and decor are dated, but there was a big flat screen tv and the room was clean. Bed was comfy and we had no complaints - excellent value for money.
