Reviewed 16 January 2014

Great location on beachfront at Byron Bay next door to the Beach Hotel. We stayed in the family suite which accommodated 5 adults. Was very clean, and is air conditioned with a kitchenette with microwave and small fridge. Hosts Nancye and Greg are very friendly and helpful. Bay Lane is behind the motel which has a wonderful range of restaurants !

We booked our stay at the Bay Motel based on price and location. What we didn't know was that this is an absolutely wonderful gem of a motel! The facilities could not have been any better, and the managers (Greg and Nancy) were as fun and gracious as we've ever experienced in our many travels. Our rooms were incredibly clean and well thought out. In addition to the motel's high quality, it's also located directly across the street from the beach...woo hoo! We definitely recommend the Bay Motel in Byron Bay for any family looking for a super value. Thank you, Greg and Nancy.

Room Tip: We occupied two rooms on the ground floor.

The room was beautiful, the bed was super comfy, great location, the balcony area was the perfect place to relax with a drink and enjoy the sounds and smells of Byron Bay. The location was fantastic, right next to the beach, heaps of restaurants and he main street. Most importantly the staff were lovely. We really can't express how much we loved this place and can't wait to get back.

Thank you Greg and Nancy for providing such a clean, modern and convenient home away from home for the weekend just gone, we had a lovely time and we found the rooms to be better than we had imagined. You're both very welcoming and provide excellent customer service, better than most larger more expensive properties. For those of you who are yet to check-in to the Bay Motel you really should give it a go as the rooms have been so well done and the overall stay was fantastic - exceeding our expectations. Well done Greg and Nancy and thanks again!!!!

because the inside has been renovated to a high standard and the location in relation to the beach is fantastic. The managers were really helpful and even allowed us to store our kayak and bicycles in the their garage. It was a shame we only had one night to spend there but look forward to hopefully returning to Byron and staying at the Bay Motel.

At first I wasn't sure by the look of the outside but so glad we stayed here! Best location in Byron Bay, great service and quiet at night. Can't explain how ideal the location was. Thanks for a great trip!
