“Great value, location, & appointments"”
Reviewed 2 May 2010

This converted 70's motel has been brought into the 21st century with flat screen cable TV's & great decorating. Clean comfortable beds & adequate bathroom space, although the floor was very slippery after. Besides that, this place is RIGHT across from town beach. Helen behind the counter is really sweet & will answer any questions as best she can. She alse let us leave our car there after c/o while we went snorkeling. We didn't try the Indian restaurant in front (was empty) or the rinky dink pool, but both are there if you're so inclined.

Would definitely stay here again. Great price too!

The Bay Beach Motel is 1 street back from Byron Bay main beach. There is the beach, a large nature reserve, and it sits on the side of the road opposite the hotels that front the reserve. It's about a 3 minute walk across to the beach and a 250m walk to the main shops of Byron Bay. The rooms are a little dark, but refurbished with a modern feel. Go for upstairs as they have private balconies overlooking bushland. Rooms are airconditioned and have flat screen tvs. Bed is comfortable but although the bathroom has been refurbished the shower stream was very poor. There is a small pool which would be good for days when you can't swim in the surf.

Reviewed 19 April 2009

We stayed at the Bay Beach motel for the Blues Festival and to get in some great Byron Bay surfing. Free access to the beach is across the street from the motel. The town of Byron Bay is a five minute walk.

The motel is two stories, with something like 14 rooms. The room we booked was pricey for the what we got (one bed, dresser, television, microwave, coffeemaker, shower ensuite), and we had to ask for wash cloths. We assume that the price was high due to the tight demand created by the Blues Fest.

The price we booked was some $300+AUD per nite, for a room more like Holiday Inn Express versus a Marriott. If the normal rate of the room is reduced to below $200AUD per nite, then it is definitely worth it.

The hotel features a small, clean pool up front - great for stretching the muscles in preparatory for surfing. The one major drawback we found was the office hours are 0800 to 2000 - we ASSUME that any calling the motel to reach you in your room would be unable to reach you outside of those hours.

There is a Tandoori grill restaraunt on the property but it is not open for Breakfast.

Overall, a great little place to stay.
