“The 3 c's :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed here 1 night. We found it to be Clean, Compact & Conveniently located. Would stay here again. The owner was very friendly and accomodating, offering us a strand view room or a quiet room at the back. Was also helpful with directions when we were leaving

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed there for 2 nights with our friends from New Zealand it was just like home away from home, off street parking has all you need, yes its old but we loved it. Its close to eateries, grocery stores, & a great park to go for works . The Barbers.

Had a couple night stay on the strand to meet friends for a weekend of socialising. Right across from the beach it is a great place to wake up.
Staff are friendly and easy going,the rooms are basic and really dated but the location is absolutly awesome.

I have stayed at the Strand motel maybe ten times over the past few years. I have gone with single bookings to multiple room bookings. The family room is excellent with a group of friends. The rooms are always clean, linen fresh, aircons working. The staff extremely helpful. The front balcony is the best place to gather with friends, plenty of chairs to sit and watch the activitys going on. With the beach just across the road, the Seaview Hotel next door, taxi rank outside what more could you ask for. Budget priced rooms are just the right price.

I have stayed here many times and I have found all the rooms I have stayed in to be comfortable, clean, and great value.
The motel is in a great location - directly across the road from the beach, there are cafes and restaurants across the road and up the road, and close to the motel is the Seaview Hotel (which on Saturday nights can be noisy). The rates are very reasonable so the accommodation is very basic but because of the great location I would stay here again.

Stayed December 2011, travelled with family

I think the owners are sitting on a development site. Maybe waiting for conditions to improve so not spending anything. The room needed a good clean and the pool looked evil although the linen was clean and bed comfortable.
As others have said it's close to everything even the walk to Palmer St. didn't take long. If you can get a deal as we did it's worth staying. Don't pay full price though.
