I was very happy with my recent stay at Motel 617. My room, although compact, was well laid out, attractive, comfortable and well equipped. The lady on reception was lovely - warm and helpful both during my phone booking and upon check-in. I wouldn't hesitate to book Motel 617 again and recommend it to others visiting Kiama.

Made to change rooms half way through a two day stay. Loud dripping noise kept us awake. Drilling, and hammering started at 6.25am. Management did not even care when we reported problems. Never again.

We have stayed here before and will do so again. It is clean, has great customer service, the people are very friendly and the motel is in a good, quiet location, although a little bit of a walk to the town centre, it is worth the peace and quiet.

If you are looking for a clean and safe room for a night or two, this is your place. Customer Service and the location is great. The room has the basics without the frills that would come at an additional cost. I was happy with my stay here.

A good, clean and well located place to stay in Kiama, easy access to main tourist attractions. Walking distance (10-15 mins) to the main street with a beach just down the road. Close to the little blowhole. Great for the budget conscious traveller with easy parking.

The room I stayed at in Motel 716 was beautiful. Very clean, and attention to detail. Modern and cute. People were lovely. The room was great. The furniture was a little funky, and they had gone to quite an effort to modernise. Thanks for a friendly stay.

My partner and I stayed here over night and found the motel fine for our needs. It was easy to catch a taxi before and after the party attended. Sure the room was not huge but it was big enough and we had no problems at all.

The photo on booking.com of the pool shows the establishment's best feature, the pool. The room would have been alright 30 years ago. Well overdue for a complete overhaul. It is also quite a distance from the main street and all of the eateries so bring a packed lunch.

Thank Craig R
