We booked 2 nights last minute at the Hibiscus Motel and were so happy with our room we booked a 3rd! The hotel might not look like much from the outside but the inside was perfect! Updated and very clean. The location can't be beat! Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops. Free parking. What more can you ask...

This is our second year in a row staying at the Hibiscus. It has a fantastic location near the top end of Jonson Street and is a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have a little kitchenette with fridge and microwave. The air conditioning is ice cold. There is off street parking, and...

Checked into this little gem for two nights - our first visit to Byron Bay. The room was compact to say the least - open the front door and there is the double bed in front of you - but it had everything - a microwave, mini kitchen, plates, cutlery and a small fridge. The room was well decorated and...

In previous trips to Byron Bay, I stated at The Atlantic, which I love, but it was booked by the time I was planning this trip, so I booked at Hibiscus based on positive Trip Advisor reviews, hoping they would not lead me astray. I'm happy to say they were spot on. Hibiscus Motel is a great, low key spot....

We stayed here for 1 night only - last minute booking, and it was great!! Spotless, neat & tidy, everything you need for 1 night or even 2 nights, close to everything!! Staff were great, let us leave our car there after check out so we could go have breakfast. Would stay there again. Ideal for weddings as you usually...

Great friendly service, very well located by just far enough from the hustle and bustle. Clean, well appointed and very well managed with convenient and free parking so that you can leave the car behind and explore Byron on foot. We will be back!

Friendly operators, clean and well appointed rooms, a short walk to the beach and dining. A parking space for each room.There's a bit of road noise early, but just pull a pillow over your head or head out early for a coffee. Can't beat the combination of value and welcome.

I stayed here for the night with my boyfriend recently. Its is budget but the room is very clean and comfy. It is just a short walk to the shops and beach behind. You can park right outside the room. Would definitely stay again.
