Great for a stop over, beds were clean, shower was fine. No problem with the free wifi. We had a big room which was good, motel is a little tired but we found everything good. Plenty of parking. We would stay again.

Rang to ask about wifi, At 11pm.. "Sorry it shuts off and I can't help you" right in the middle of a Conference call to Jakarta. Wine bottles, boxes and linen laying in the car park... I've never experienced such rude and judgmental people Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else

Rooms are fairly soundproof, didnt hear much at all and it was peak holiday season. Only stayed one night but wanted more! Would recommend to anyone and would definitelt stay again on... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. We stayed in Room 2 each time, the second time was requested. We found the room very roomy and comfortable. Yes there is a problem with an ill fitting shower door but the spotless and very spacious room and very comfortable king bed certainly made up for it. We will return... More

The room and amenities were excellent. A very good dining experience but the breakfast buffet was quite ordinary. We would recommend this motel to travellers passing through or looking for a holiday in Coffs.

Stayed here for three nights, via Groupon. I am so happy that I didn't pay full tote. The advertised price as a special is $85.00 per night and I think this would be about right for this motor inn. Room was basic, clean, shower o.k. but leaked out onto the bathroom floor. King bed was comfortable, certainly agree that the... More

We stayed here for a one night stop over, the staff were wonderful and very helpful. The Motor Inn was in a good location in beautiful surrounds, but it is very tired. The villa's are very generous in size and have all you need for a longer stay, the bedding was very clean and comfortab with main and second bedroom... More

My husband and I stayed for one night. The receptionist was welcoming upon arrival and we had a good chat about Coffs Harbour and our travels.

OK for a one-night stay. Clean and tidy, but overpriced for the location. No extra pillows, no toaster, and one wine glass for two people. Other guests wandering around, up and down stairs, and noisy at 2.30am.

The accommodations were clean. However a few bugs got into the bathroom which we didn't know from where. I found one in the hand towel and one around the sink. The decor was dated, but everything was still clean. Wifi is a bit slow like every other motor inn we stayed at. It was a nice basic motor inn for... More
