We have stayed here a couple of times and for the price it is fantastic. The owners are great and the room is always very clean. It is a very quiet motel and central to everything. We would recommend to anyone we know coming to stay.

The Tin Can Bay Motel is a bit hidden away in a non-sea view street, but that doesn't matter one jot when the experience is so good. Management very friendly and helpful, spotlessly clean room and inviting crisp white linen. Lovely bed, pillows and douvet (not those horrible motel blankets). Good, well equipped kitchenette, large shower, nice outlook over bush. This is one of the most enjoyable nights I've spent in a motel of this price ($95.00) A real steal. Congratulations to the owners for running such a pleasant and efficient little place. Thoroughly recommended.

What an awesome gem. We were so welcomed here. Including our Tenterfield Terrier. Was close to all facilities and the owners are so accommodating. Nothing was too much for them. Very clean and large family rooms. Very affordable.

Our hosts could not have been more accommodating as we were towing a jet ski and also required a late check out. There was ample space to park our jet ski, facilities available to wash down the jet ski after a day on the water. Late check out was not a problem. The rooms are very clean, large, with all the necessary comforts. The Motel is situated very close to the water. Nothing was seen as a problem by our hosts - so ten out of ten for service.

Having our staffie ` Jackson' with us on my birthday was my wish. Tin can bay motel staff not only welcomed us and our dog but their pup `rollo' was also an excellent host and good playmate for our boy.
We felt totally at home.
thank you

The owners of this little motel are proactive and helpful at every stage of the contact. The facilities are fresh, clean, neat and very comfortable. Clearly, the makeover has happened recently, and was very much appreciated. Would recommend this motel to anyone! Definitely value for money.
