Reviewed 28 March 2017

We are not usually motel visitors, preferring to have somewhere with a few extra amenities, but the Blue Waters Motel was perfect for our shortstay in Kingscliff. Very friendly and helpful staff on check in. Clean rooms, comfy beds and pillows and only a short walk to the beach. We also had not realised that this motel is pet friendly...

Thank you for that lovely review Julian. I must clarify though that we are not classified as 'pet friendly" ...to actually fit that category we must aloow pets IN THE UNITS and that is not our policy. However we do have a few rooms with those courtyards and IF guests are happy to have their dog / cat stay in...

Three friends stayed at Blue Waters Motel recently for a sport related weekend. The room was clean and spacious with a lovely little patio out the back door where we could sit and relax. The room was well appointed with TV, Air Con, Fans, Microwave, Refrigerator and Tea and Coffee facilities as well as a newly decorated bathroom. There was...

Stayed here to go to a friend's birthday. It was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy but good value for money. The staff were super friendly also! Only drawback was the extremely tight parking. I would definitely stay there again.

Jan K, Owner at Blue Waters Motel, responded to this review

Thank you Sarah. Glad all was good. I think most of our parking is just like normal shopping centre size , but there are a couple in the back wing , when we get larger vehicles that can be challenging for some people. I apologise if you were allocated one of these. Glad it wasnt enough to put you off...

Stayed at Blue water for one night this week. Jan was friendly and accessible as were the support staff and room attendants. Arriving late the air con and fans were on which was appreciated during this very hot spell. In my sister's room were two wine glasses cooling in the fridge, also welcome(!) as Jan knew we might be getting...

Good size very clean rooms, with pay TV, and great aircon. One block back from the beach and 30min walk to main shopping area. Nice pool area. Microwave, fridge, and good range of utensils. No complaints.

We stayed at blue water for 1 night and thought the Jan and her husband were wonderful accomadating people ! Rooms were great and had foxtel.

Friendly and professional service and excellent value. No pretensions to being a resort but motel rooms with the basics and clean rooms with a good pool. A little distance from town (about 2km.) so a car is essential if you want to go to cafes etc. WiFi varies - had to walk around to get reception which then disappeared when...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I should mention that if the walk is too far for some people then the courtesy bus is a good option for eating downtown. Not sure about your issue with the WIFI? Guests successfully use it down at the pool - my apologies if you had trouble in your room...

The room was clean and very well equipped. We were greeted in reception by the owner and she couldn't have been more helpful and efficient. The pool looked clean and very inviting although we didn't use it. It is the best motel we've stayed in by far.

This motel is run by Jan and her husband. We stay there in November 2016 as we had a wedding to attend. Jan offered to drive us to the wedding reception which I thought was a wonderful idea so we didn't have to worry about our car. I would definitely stay at Blue Waters Motel again. The rooms are lovely...

Recently my husband and I had the pleasure of staying overnight at this delightful gem of a motel. Our air conditioned room was indeed comfortable, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean.
