“Best value for money in area”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Sand Bar Motel as a family with 2 young children for four nights. Due to a late booking there was only Queen Room left but we risked it (wasn't sure whether we could fit in an extra bed/mattress). It appeared to be just perfect because the owners kindly put a roll-away for our 5yo and our 3yo loved sleeping on a two-sitter couch (very comfortable.) The room is nice and clean, nothing fancy but was ideal for us.
The little kettle-toaster area was bigger than I expected and served well to our needs. There's some cutlery as well and teas, coffees, milk, sugar, small biscuits refilled daily.
A must to mention is a huge and really delicious breakfast - bacon and eggs for adults and cereal with toast and jam for children.
The Motel is a walking distance to everything including an amazing beach and local shops, and a lake is just across the road.
Overall, we are very happy with the choice we made and hope to come back there next year.

This motel is about 200m on the highway from the main set of shops. The owners are really nice and can cook different sets of either a hot breakfast (eggs 4 different ways) or a contentinental. Price is medium range as i spotted other establishments a bit cheaper.

The facilities are basic but homely.

Only downside was the windy weather but one thing they couldn't control.

I recommend this place.

Older motel with clean well appointed room. We could not fault the place. The lady who ran the place was extremely nice and is a tireless worker.
Breakfast was good and the pool and outside recreation areas are excellent.
Lakes Entrance is a terrific place, with lots of good eating places, scenic walks and wonderful scenery. we had a wonderful time.

I read previous reviews and found this motel to be the most enticing. They were all correct. Great value for money with a cooked breakfast included. Very clean and tidy room and very quiet. Gracious and friendly hosts. Very enjoyable overnight stay. Will stay here again

We booked 2 rooms and found them to be quite roomy, very neat, tidy and comfortable. Location was great with a short walk to shops/restaurants & the footbridge leading to the beach. A free cooked breakfast of bacon & eggs was delivered to our rooms, hot and at the requested time. Overall spent a relaxing weekend there with no issues. Would definitely go back there again :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. After a long day's drive to be met with a friendly smile and comfortable accommodation was wonderful. The room was warmed ready for our arrival, There was plenty of room and we could park at the door. The rooms were spotlessly clean with plenty of room for luggage and the beds were very comfortable. It is an older style motel but It looks like everything has been recently renovated and painted. Five minutes walk takes you to the bridge leading to the surf beach. It is close to the restaurants and shops in town and there is one of the best seafood restaurants called Ferryman's Floating Restaurant about 2km along the lake. We would like to stay longer next time. For $85 including bacon and eggs for breakfast, you cannot beat the value, thoroughly recommended.(The scrambled eggs were lumpy though). They do not seem to be on any of the booking sites, which makes it cheaper, so take note of the telephone number 03 5155 2567.

We stayed here for one night as a stop over on the way home from Merimbula. The motel is in a great location- 5 min walk to the footbridge over to the beach and shops/restaurants. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Nice to have a two seater couch to relax on. Bacon and egg breakfast was included in the room charge, and was delivered through the hatch exactly on time and nice and hot. Great value for a short stay.

Room Tip: Rooms down the back would here less noise from the road.
