Great location right across the road to the beach. New managers have just taken over and they made us feel welcome. They were busy cleaning and you can see they will give it a go. Our room was fine, bed good. We will be back, and also enjoyed the cooked breaky.

got conned via marketing company - ALL STAR RESORT MARKETING.... who does not return the complaint phone call '[--] - name was kevin. very nice new management but place was a disgrace.
mould in curtins, shower, cupboards lots of ants (in the bed).
good location from beach but would not stay their again. marketing company said we had an ocean view (not) 2 room self contained apartment (unless you call toaster, jug and microwave self contained).
I'd give the New owners 6mths hard work cut out for them to tidy the place up.

..Thank you for your comments..We are the New Managers of the motel and took over on the 22nd April 2010. We believe the alleged marketing company is conducting buisness incorrectly and we have reported this to consumer affairs who are investigating. We are not responsible for any comments by this alleged marketing company about our motel. What we have been offering is affordable rates.. as customers like yourself have been misled..We have replaced the shower curtains and the ants will be sorted out as we are waiting for the pest control agent to do the entire premises and we will ensure this is done regulary as recomended

We were going up north along the coast, and we had no plans in staying long in Coffs, we needed a decent place to stay for a single night. And The Ocean Parade did perfectly the job.

It is a typical motel: 2 story design, all rooms facing the parking lot (which is nicely part grass there), functional rooms with no desired style.

The room was spacious, with a comfortable and clean bed. Had a great night of sleep.
The bathroom is average but clean. Friendly and helpful hotel manager.

So I would definitely recommend this place for someone looking for a good value motel, but I would probably not recommend it for a long stay, too motelish.

bought two nights thru phone marketing, big mistake, was totally misled,
walked in and was really let down, its very dated, the cleanliness was questionable, i actually cleaned the dust caked on the aircon off and took the filter out and did it as well, and the grill on the exhaust fan in the bathroom as well, just couldnt stand looking at it, i own a motel and there is no excuse for not being clean its just down right laziness, they werent busy and we watched the new management sit and drink and smoke on their verandah, there was no pr, except when we left an asian man waved and smiled as we drove out, he wasnt the one on the verandah, the grounds were neat, but its old and tired and shows, i am fussy but can also tolerate as long as its clean, i woke at 4.30am with a cockroach running over my hand, it was a big one and spent the next half hour finding it to kill it, their were a few others running around when i went to the toilet, i know you can get them even in clean places but it just was the straw to crack the camels back, "please get a pest man in. and do some cleaning yourself if you cant find a cleaner, scrub one room a day top to toe and it may mean the difference from a repeat customer to a never again. vaccuum under the beds and around the edges as well, & wash the curtains, they had mould on them, the towels were old and marked, no room service, we came back to find the clean towels dumjped on the end of an unmade bed and four more tea bags in the caddy they didnt even take the rubbish out. under the sink were aluminium pots and pans that looked dirty not unwashed just dirty with the dust pan and brush sitting on top of them. the spare blankets were on the bottom of the cupboards they looked the same, it all just felt less than adequate. there is no repeat customer here, my suggestion is to always ask to view the room first.......pay a little more at more updated resort its worth it. and dont take the marketing persons word for it they probably have no idea anyway.

Reviewed 27 September 2009

After arriving for our weekend stay with our children, we were shocked to find
they didn't have enough beds for us, as was organised when we booked...
The rooms were small, and dated. The bath linen was stained. The beds were sunken in the middle. We were so disgusted after first walking into our rooms we forfeited our deposit (as management would not give us our money back) and went somewhere else... The big, black dog is not acceptable in the reception either... Please "Dont Go"..

orysia01, Manager at Ocean Parade Motel, responded to this review, 17 December 2009
First let me state that there has been new management since May 2009. So the Title of this review is simply not true.
We have tidied the motel up, painted and done other improvements.
I realise that we cannot please everyone and I am sorry that this person was not pleased with the room or our service.
Many of the issues raised have now been taken care of. We have worked hard to raise the standard of service since taking over, and so I am disapointed that they would state that we are not new management, when we have had many compliments on the improvement of service since taking over. I realise that it is not a new motel, however it is clean, tidy and we try to please as best we can.
