Really large and comfortable rooms. Absolute waterfront location and friendly, customer focussed staff. Motorcycle friendly, storing my panniers and luggage while my bike was serviced.......this was after I had checked out!👍 Very good value, just needs a bit of rejuvenation but worth trying.

We arrived late in the afternoon and found this motel had a vacancy. Not the newest motel in the area, but a quick look at the rooms confirmed that it had everything we needed and it was clean. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. We booked 2 rooms and both had very good beds and a nice hot shower....

Always enjoy staying here while visiting on business in Nightcruiser Party Bus Tours Country. Jeanne and Brian Fagan are always obliging and super friendly. Again in my favourite room with ocean view and waves breaking which also becomes my office view.

I stayed in this Motel with my brothers and the rooms were a little date though very clean and spacious. We got the rooms at a bargain rate and the receptionist was fantastic on check in. If you are after the basic at a good rate then Ocean Drive is the go :-)

Old fashioned, basic and good value for money. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and exactly what you'd expect from a family seaside motel. Owners were friendly and quick to help out with a small problem. Being right across the road from the beach and breakers was exactly what I hoped for. Traffic stops at 10pm and after that – the ocean,...

Is the Motel dated? yes but for $120 on a bank holiday weekend what more could you expect? We were in room 16 just open the door and the ocean view is there. The room had aircon, a modern TV and a comfortable bed- everything we needed for one night. The owner was very welcoming showing us where the main...

The first question the owner asked, was: 'how would you like to pay?' Not: 'Welcome, how are you, how was your trip', but 'how would you like to pay...' An ideal place for roadworkers, who are drinking beer from 6.00 to 8.00 am on their balcony... The place is old and not very clean.

What a pleasure to stay in this immaculate apartment - just a walk across the road to the beach and BBQ area- we had most our dinners there! I would have loved an aircon in the third room as we were there in a heatwave, but am sure it would have been fine any other time Thank you to staff...
