I stayed here for one night on a Friday night, and I was very impressed. I wouldn't have known it was a motel unless someone had told me. The lady at the front was extremely helpful. She was able to get us a room before our check-in time. She also gave us a map and told us all the great... More

Great little motel in Byron Bay in a fantastic location. The room was extremely comfortable and staff very friendly. Free parking for motel guests, and while I didn't try it (was the middle of Winter!), they have a pool. I had a great experience and would stay here again when back in Byron Bay.

I happened to land in Byron bay the weekend of a large music festival and all the hotels were sold out of rooms. I just needed one night and after tons of online searching I found Bay Beach Motel and at a reasonable price. When we arrived we got a warm welcome from Mary Jane at the front desk, who... More

This Motel is great, I stay here each time I travel to Byron Bay its so convenient to town but far enough to escape the night life, a little cold for a dip in the pool but nice to sit around and read a book on a winter summers day. A casual stroll to breakfast and right next door to... More

Just stayed for one night. Great spot nice clean and very friendly staff. Room was small but was all we needed. Was pricey but all of Byron is. The receptionist phoned ahead to see what time we would arrive and to make sure they didn't leave a key out. When we arrived they went to the room and turned heaters... More

We were only in Byron for a few days and so was looking for a close, convenient, clean and well fit out but casual stay. Let's face it, you spend all your time out IN Byron, not in your room. This was a great option. Clean, well fit out and although on the main road it was very quiet. The... More

I absolutely love Byron and we always try to stay at Bay Beach. The rooms are 'no frills' and most are studios but still airy and bright and the staff are really friendly. But the best part is the location, easy walking to the main end of the beach, the more secluded end and all the restaurants but far enough... More

What a great experience Byron Bay is, it is full of exciting people of all ages I just love my visits and it has been almost a year since I visited last. Certainly need to rectify that. As creatures of habits we tend to gravitate to the what we know and feel comfortable with. The Bay Beach Motel is one... More

The bay motel is centrally located and an easy walk to anywhere in Byron bay. Rooms were clean, comfortable and tidy. The staff were friendly. This motel was a great budget option for our weekend away in lovely Byron bay!

My partner and I stayed here along with 5 other couples for a long weekend recently. We all found the location of the property perfect, really close to the beach and a great range of restaurants. While the outside looks a bit old the rooms have been renovated and are very clean and modern. Also the staff were very friendly... More
