We had planned to stay in Jervis Bay for the weekend, to do some scuba diving. Every type of accommodation that I tried was either full, or had already had poor reviews on TripAdvisor. I decided to try Nowra, an acceptable 20 minute drive away. I eventually rang the Marriott Park Motel. Not only did they have availability, but the lady manageress thoughtfully mentioned that they had a group of golfers staying. This group was apparently rather noisy and she thought that she ought to mention it, in case it affected our stay. I was impressed by her honesty and made the booking anyway. In fact, the golfers, whilst enjoying themselves around the barbecue, did not really bother us at all.
We had room 8, which has apparently been recently refurbished. The room was spotlessly clean (apparently the manager does/oversees a lot of the cleaning himself). The decorations were tasteful and cheerful, with oversize cushions on the bed. The room had the usual provisions of fridge, kettle and toaster and a microwave can be hired for an extra $2 a night. Parking is directly outside the ground-floor rooms.
Although the motel is just off the main road, we didn't really notice any traffic noise. It is a short drive from the centre of Nowra, but there is a shopping centre with a large supermarket only about ten minutes walk away.
In all, good-value, clean accommodation, with helpful, thoughtful hosts.
