The ground level room we had was, as said in reviews I'd read, a bit tired, but clean and spacious. A toaster and microwave, plates and cutlery, in addition to the standard tea and coffee making equipment, would have made some self catering possible. undercover parking for ground floor guests was a bonus.
As everyone says the view, sound of the ocean, access to a beach and sea air are fantastic.

It was a small nice holiday for my family. The room was clean and comfortable with amazing view. The staff provide everyday housekeeping . There is restaurant with ocean view as will . The food is pretty good. The hotel is very close to shopping center and the main street with small shops and restaurans .
I recommend this hotel .

Location - triple yes. Ok, it's old, but clean and comfy and roomy - and the balcony view is to die for. There's just a laneway, then the ocean - not the sand and then the waves - the ocean is right there. I can really recommend room 28 - it is the most private balcony - 27 looks into the neighbours. 29 would be ok. You have to have top floor - there's only 3 floors. The second floor would be ok I suppose. Ground floor has a grassed area for children but no view to compare. The restaurant has full ocean views. There's undercover parking via a side street. When you pull up for reception, don't be misled by the view of the back of the units. Top floor is about $220 per night and worth every cent.

We were at The Entrance for a 60th and the Ocean Front Motel was fantatic for us. Overlooked the ocean and our ground floor apartment was big and roomy. Staff very helpful and we'll definitely be back!!

Staying here for the second time for 2 nights with my 15yr old son. We have come back for a few reasons, getting welcomed by Vicki who remembers us from our stay in March last year, how special does that make you feel. Vicki also helped to locate places to eat out that she knows have a good reputation and just her warm inviting welcome makes you look forward to the next time we go back. This place may be a motel and the rooms a little dated but it has something you can’t put money on, the amazing view of the ocean and the sound of the waves that gives the best sleep. Close to The Entrance centre and the baths are right in front of the Motel. Looking forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: We have stayed on top and second floor with amazing views but the ground with a small grassed area l...
