We stayed in an unrenovated room on the top floor. The ocean views from the room are truly spectacular. The room was neat and tidy but in desperate need of a renovation (especially the bathroom). The motel is an easy 15 minute coastal walk to town along a boardwalk. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful during...

I booked the Spa on Deck room for 1 night for my partners birthday. We arrived for check in just after 2pm, check in was very quick and the customer service great. We were notified on check in that the Ocean Front Motel is now smoke free and that you actually need to leave the venue to have a cigarette,...

The views here are Stunning! And the rates are very reasonable for what you're getting. Book a room with an internal or outdoor spa as those are renovated I believe and are really nice! The staff I encountered were also very down to earth and lovely! Would live here if I could.. So relaxing!

It is obvious that this motel has been here for a long time. However, our room was clean and well-serviced, with decent amenities, including air-conditioning and a fridge. Shower pressure was good. The view from our 3rd floor room was a spectacular vista of the ocean with views to The Entrance. We had lunch in the motel restaurant on the...

The hotel has great views of the Pacific Ocean, the beach directly in front is rocky but close by is an ocean pool, and short walk to the entrance beach which is patrolled. It's about a 15 min walk to the entrance pub and shops. Spa rooms are the best, spa with a view. The reception staff are friendly and...

I travelled with my partner and we booked one of the renovated rooms which was beautiful. Reception staff did offer us a non renovated room with more of an ocean view, but we were still able to see the ocean from our room. Great location, staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend!

This is a hotel where you pay for the beautiful coastal view and location. We stayed for 5 nights in December in an balcony spa room. From our balcony we had uninterrupted views up and down the coast. The spa was a lovely addition as it was relaxing while enjoying the view. If you don't mind paying a bit extra...

Great location for a short break. Good walk to town (15 minutes) along the beach path. Sleeping to the sound of the sea. Nice clean and big rooms. We had a balcony room overlooking the sea. The restaurant is open on Friday and Saturday night and the food is top shelf. Brekkie only on Friday and Saturday mornings but cool...
