Wow location in heaven”

If you happen to travel to Whyalla for business or pleasure this great Motel has a unique location near a park and overlooking the ocean. It is very reasonably priced, with a very very very nice restaurant. Meals are 1st class with a view you will never forget, and a very peaceful quiet location.

Overnight stay on way home to Adelaide”

Great location - probably the best location in Whyalla, but in need of a fairly major upgrade. Restaurant looked neat and clean and had a lovely view overlooking the ocean, however meal prices were at the higher end of the marketplace. Swimming pool looked clean but pool area was not inviting. In summary reasonable accommodation for an overnight stay but would look elsewhere if staying in Whyalla for more than one night.

Double Charged!!!!”

I paid online for the booking through Agoda.com ($306) and then the Foreshore Motor Inn also thought it worthwhile to charge me another $545 from my account without any notice or discussion. On arrival I presented my credit card which I believed was for a security deposit or if I happened to use the water out of the bar fridge and was not told I was being charged....Avoid avoid avoid!!!!!! I am currently trying to follow up the payment however only get answering machines.

Location is not in City Center but next to the ocean, 5-10 mins drive to the City Center or Supermarket. We can enjoy the sea view and the relaxing environment next to the hotel. Room was nice and clean, only a bit old as long as clean. The woman in the front desk was really nice, I think she is the manager there, friendly and had a great chat with her.

great for a one night stay to break up the journey”

Located on the coast with restaurant looking out over the ocean. The staff were very friendly. The continental breakfast did not include tea or coffee. The room was very tired, in need or a face lift. There was no heating so the room was cold. The contact number after hours was not answered.

Tired and outdated”

Room was basic but reasonably comfortable. Bathroom facilities were poor - shower cubicle only had a curtain, toilet paper dispenser was the same as you get in a public toilet and few shower accessories were provided. On checkout we were asked if we had used any of the mini bar....but only bottled water was provided. Prices of the dining room were very inflated. We were able to get fresh milk in a jug so that was a positive.

Dissapointed ”

I booked a garden view room, when I got there I got an upstairs room ‘with the best view’ opened the window and I must have the only room with a tree up against the window. The room was small, there was no ventilation in the bathroom, the water pressure in the shower was terrible and the taps leaked. Also the food was a little overpriced for what you get. The only thing good about this place was it’s location close to the beach.
