We had a family event in The Entrance and stayed two nights with other family members in different room options.
First I would like to point out that that the definition of a 'Resort' is a place you stay at on holidays and I have seen some wonderful and some not so. This resort is a Motor Inn as it sign suggests and it also has a caravan park just up the road, so handy for the grey nomads and is reasonably priced.
Our Executive Room which is a contradiction in terms, it was a small room and was clean and tidy but needs some TLC and modernisation, the cover over the tissue box fell off all the time and painted (peeling off) tiles in the bathroom!!! This room should be labelled as a Double Room and priced accordingly, it did have a view of the swimming pool and of the Entrance. We paid $90 (online price) and not the standard rate of $250 which I would not have paid. We looked at the family room and for the same price (on-line) it was a much better room. Due to the shortage of staff our room was not made up on day two and we accepted an apology from the office.
The El Largo has a restaurant that is open for a $20 breakfast (does not open for lunch or dinner) and the times fluctuate to the signage - it was easier to breakfast just up the road for $7 per person.
This Motor-Inn is very handy to the shops and restaurants of The Entrance and a nice walkway along the water front.
The staff were very friendly and helpful but on two occasions I could hear them discuss their pay and conditions - in that they haven't been paid or their super had not been paid up to date, disgruntled staff may lead to some of the small problems encountered.
If the price is right I would stay there again.
