Stayed for 2 nights, nice and clean. Not too many extras, felt a little squeezed with maintenance happening around the property. Room was as expected, thought the previous reviews may have been over generous in their praise. We heard quite a bit of conversations from our neighbours, are the walls thin?

Trusted what the reviews said here and I'm so glad I did! Everything was neat and clean as described by other guests. Good location.Only 20 min walk to D'albora Marinas. West diggers only 5 min walk ( around the corner from the motel).I would love to see them have their own restaurant or cafe because they have this great deck...

I personally have never stayed in a cleaner establishment EVER My wife checks everything and she couldn't fault a thing. The pool was small but very clean. The motel has a Balinese or Thai decoration and is very nice for a budget Motel $98 a double we stayed 3 nights

We had a choice of places and was looking for reasonably priced accomodation and for the price we were quite happy. Had a kitchenette which came in very handy . There was a swim pool but we were so busy with other things we didn't get time.

Spent two nights here December 2016. Booked a room for 3 people. I was really surprised how much room there was. The motel and room were immaculate and for the money spent and closeness to the water (15 minute walk) we were really surprised and happy. All staff we interacted with were friendly and obliging. My only quibble would be...

Lovely quiet room with relaxing colour scheme and spotlessly clean.Really helpful and friendly staff. A nice under cover area with comfy seating provides a great spot for coffee or drinks and a pool nearby adds to the appeal. No restaurant but the rooms have a small kitchenette with microwave.
