When visiting my mum at Salamander Bay, we always stay with the great people at Admiral Nelson Motor Inn. We have become real regulars, and just love the spacious and immaculately clean rooms.

We stayed here for 3 nights and we were impressed with how well maintained and clean the Admiral Nelson is. Our room was spotlessly serviced each day by the friendly cleaning staff and the manager Michael went out of his way to make sure our stay was hassle free. We'll be back!

Nothing special. Clean room with a balcony. About a mile from the city center. We walked it. A nice 20 min walk along the ocean. Has a pool. But I didn't use. The beds weren't that comfortable, but for the price I would definitely recommend

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.
