The first time I visited this place, it was peak season in Nelson Bay (Dec/Jan) and finding accommodation for a reasonable price is difficult. I googled Nelson Bay accommodation and came up with Nelson Towers Motel. I called up and was fortunate that there was a room available for the couple of nights I needed. The staff were very accommodating and I thought the price was reasonable given the location. Coming from Darwin where a nights stay can be up to $200-300 per night, just over $100 I thought was great, considering it is the best located accommodation in town as it is a stones throw away from the Marina and the city centre. They had free wifi, and free parking. Nelson Bay has metered parking everywhere so having a place for the car and having everything so close was brilliant.
Reading some of the other comments, I think people have high expectations but keep in mind the accommodation is a MOTEL not a HOTEL so if you are expecting the Hilton or some chain hotel, this accommodation does not fit that criteria.
Since my first visit a couple of years ago, I've now revisited and stayed several times and also referred friends and family to stay there who have enjoyed their stay also.
