Byron Bay Side Central Motel
Ranked #31 of 34 Hotels in Byron Bay
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This motel is spotless! Nice size rooms with loads of space, and big balconies.
We really enjoyed our stay, and the staff were super friendly and helpful, and our room was given a daily service. Even when I accidentally broke one of the glasses in the rooms kitchen area, and took the remains to reception to apologise and pay for a replacement, they were very understanding and even thanked me for cleaning it up and bringing it to them! And told me accidents happen and there was certainly no charge. How wonderful :)
And a 10pm 'Keep the noise down" policy - brilliant!
We would highly recommend staying here, great for families and friends. AAA+++

If you don't have the earth to spend then this is perfect.
Our room a twin...had a leather couch, single bed, double bed and fold out bed. Kitchen is well stocked with handy pots and pans and all the other necessaries. The bathroom was clean...washing machine...dryer etc. Also as it's christmas day...we were given extra towels...as staff were off for the day. And...just wait for this....they wrote us a handwritten christmas card that came through our door on Christmas day. Now that is good service.

Sure our room isn't the brightest...the kitchen could do with a revamp. But you know what you are getting into and it exceeded some slightly nervy expectations (I booked late and didnt have much of a budget). Also...they have a car park...with a space for your room number. So nobody can nab it. Ideal.

It's also right in the heart of the fun times of Byron...well sort of. If you walk down Middleton street you are at the beach. A chilled part of the beach.

I would recommend this to my friends.

I should say our room didnt have aircon. I think I knew this, but I know they advertise some rooms as having it. They do have ceiling fans and an additional pedestal fan to boot.

It's like they thought of everything.

Room Tip: Try and get one with aircon if you can...if it doesn't affect the price. The balconies have fl...

Having struggled to find resort accommodation for our "large family" of five including three children for 1 night, we booked into the relatively cheap Bayside Central Motel. We had to book 2 rooms to accommodate the three kids. The receptionist was polite but I felt like I was booking into. A backpackers hostel with the car garage closing at 9pm until 7am which felt like a curfew.

Apart from that the rooms were clean although there was no air conditioning which meant the rooms were hot all night. Also the motel was located near some bars and a park which meant there was a lot of noise late at night. Still, the motel was clean and with the price we paid, we probably couldn't expect much more.

It is important to us that people are happy , we are sorry you were unable to book a 2 bedroom apartment for your family, you did not book our airconditioned units and found the hours of the undercover parking limited. We don’t have any bars or parks near us?

Stayed 1 night, off season. Rate was $130, best price in town. Walking distance to ocean and all shops. Room 12 was spacious, clean, lovely balcony with afternoon sun, and to top it all off--washer and dryer in the bathroom! Travelling by car from Sydney to Brisbane, this was the best value and most relaxing.

We stayed there during schoolies and they were the cheapest we found (apart form backpackers). The whole place was very clean, in a quiet area and only few steps from everything. About 5 min walk to the beach, even less to the center. There was a underground parking which we didn't use as we didn't have a car there. So cant rate that. However, I recommend this place if you don't wanna share in backpackers or unless you're too fancy.

Room Tip: We stayed in room nr. 1. It had a balcony on the street side but still it's very quiet.

We stayed here Nov 17-21 (2013) in an upstairs room on the south end. It had a balcony which overlooked the next door neighbours who put on a great show as they were practicing their fire twirling.
This motel is located in a very central part of Byron Bay, with shopping centres, great places to eat, and the beach, which are all, minutes walk away.
The underground parking and the internal laundry were very convenient, and the staff were helpful.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Upstairs south side, if you want to overlook a dance / music school for great shows!

I stayed here early 2013 after reading some decent reviews. However when we arrived i was not impressed. The place is terribly dated, you must carry all your luggage up the stairs, you can only access the car park within certain hours, the room has very little natural light, the tv was missing a cord plug in so did not work, the beds are not comfortable and worst of all I woke up with a coach roach crawling on me under the blankets!!!!! I complained the next day to the reception but they did not care at all! I would not recommend this place to anyone! I certainly will not be returning!

Stayed: April 2013
