            The Bay Motel was great. The location is directly across the road from beach AND a playground. It’s right in the middle of the downtown area and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Overall, an excellent choice and we’ll be back!

            Bay on byron beach”

            They tried to charge me more than the Agoda rate. Agoda rate was $788 for 2 nights & the motel tried to charge me $915 saying that I had to pay extra bcos the had to pay Agoda $137. I had an arguement with them over the last minute rate. Housekeeping came in & only made the bed. They did not sweep the floor or clean the dirty dishes. the TV was old & could not get all free to air channels, let alone HD. Apart from that it was comfortable enough.

            Friendly we're not”

            Location, price for the location, that's about it

            Stuff running the place not all that friendly, possibly doing this for a bit too long and are over all these tourists expecting value for their $$ and a service with a smile. Not overly clean there was mild in the grout joints in the shower - furry type so had been there a while. Room being services meant primarily changing towels which given poor ventilation in this place it was a must as towels never dried overnight. Tiled floor everywhere but not once was it moped. The bins were only emptied if full enough and beds were never once made. I had to clean the floors 3 times with their towels because between rain and sand floors were disgusting. Had to do it because otherwise all dirt would be brought in bed and who wants to sleep in a dirty bed. Only one washer was ever provided between 3 people. No fly screens on any windows and huge big gap under the door consequently we share our room with the local friendly baby gecko. At check out time which was at 10:00 am we had a knock on the door right on 10 giving us the hurry up. Never ever have we had this done before in all the motels, hotels we stayed at. We were packed and most luggage was in the car, and the stuff could see this, so it wasn't necessary, and in my opinion soo rude. They went into the room before we even returned the key. Loved the location but next time we'll not be staying here.
