Edgewater is one of the many motels along Marine Parade, about 750m walk to city centre, and 500m in the other direction to the aquarium.
It doesn't necessarily boast the same facilities or room sizes as some of the others, but we got a fantastic price, only $99, and didn't even need to pre-pay (which seems very common thesedays if you're getting a great rate). As promised the room was upstairs with a sea view and a small balcony.
Room wasn't huge but wasn't tiny, good sized flat screen TV, everything was clean and working which is great. I don't need fancy stuff, just stuff that does what it should. Fridge and microwave, plus of course basic tea & coffee and crockery & glasses. Can't remember whether there was a toaster or not.
Downsides would be that it was a double bed rather than queen, the balcony isn't that big and is shared with the room next door, no cooking facility other than the microwave, and perhaps most importantly in winter or summer, seems there wasn't aircon. We stayed in spring so that wasn't a problem, and the other things weren't an issue for us and definitely not an issue at the price.
