We took the lower priced $95 unit and the bed was barely a double..too small for two. Shower had hot water and towels clean. Bonus was the toaster and plates and cutlery, so as one could make a small brekky in the morning. The only real reason to stay here, is it's position on the waterfront at Margate beach and...

We had one of the non-sea view motel rooms for less than 100 AUD, but you get what you (don't) pay for: the room is ok clean, but asks for redecoration, barren walls, your head on the quite short bed ending right on it and you can feel some springs of the mattress. A/C from the seventies, very loud and...

This was an older style Motel in a good location right opposite the beach. Quiet location even though it is on the Esplanade. We stayed 3 nights and had to ask for a change of linen. You get what you pay for.

We stayed one night as we were going to a friend's party nearby. There are few, if any, other options in the vicinity and it's hard to imagine anyone would stay here if there were. It's the archetypical 1970's motel that time forgot. Cramped room, tatty furnishings, dodgy plumbing and an all-round feeling of neglect. There was a slither of...

My husband and I stayed with our 12 year old son overnight. Motel is well located, clean and comfortable. View is amazing from the upstairs balcony. Manager was friendly and the whole stay was very pleasant. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.
