We booked thru a private owner and the room was nice and clean .The place is tidy and quiet ,no mess as per some reviews.Rooms are not huge but we...

Don't even bother with place to stay at, they cancel your booking the night before your stay!!! I booked two (2) rooms in April 2014 for a one (1) night stay on 17.5.14 via wotif.com. Money was paid & confirmation received! Imagine my surprise when I received a call from Wotif at 7.00pm the night before to say the Motel...

Do yourself a favour and keep on driving past this one. Way out of town, extremely rude staff, very poor service, filthy grounds (old furniture hanging out of garages!), and old and dirty rooms. I don't mind discount services for discount prices but my advice - stay clear away! You'd be better off camping. Rating = zero!

Stayed here from 29/12/13 - 04/01/14. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Room was immaculate. Excellent price. Absolutely loved out stay and will be back again. Short drive to town. Room set away from road meant no noisy traffic

My husband and I spent 3 nights in January and loved this motel. Clean, fresh rooms overlooking Merimbula, great sea breeze. Rooms had kitchenette, ensuite, large TV, DVD. It was quiet, with bush surrounds. Even though a short drive from the main area it was good to get away from the crowds. Very affordable and the pool was lovely.

My family and I stayed at the motor lodge for 4 nights from Boxing Day. It was our first trip to Merimbula. The accommodation was pretty much the only one that was available for the 4 nights that we were after and as it was a last minute decision we booked it. For a basic accommodation it was perfect it...

Stayed here 1 night. Very clean and comfortable. Basic amenities but adequate. A bit noisy from the unit above but I suppose this cant be helped. Staff helpful. Warm showers and good tv reception. Would definitely stay again.
