              Last minute accomodation as travelling down the coast to Sydney. Receptionist helpful. Rooms smelt trouble snd were small tired and concrete cells. Dirty worn nylon carpet snd a bathroom that wasn’t great either. Would never stay here again as it was just depressing unfortunately.

We seriously can’t thank him enough for all his help during our stay. For being a motel this place was really nice.

Location was a 5min walking distance from the port where you can catch a 1.5hr dolphin watch cruise. Additional necessities could be bought easily at Woolsworth/Coles located a short 8min drive away. All-in-all, its a great place to stay and highly recommended!

A little more dusting could have helped and an update on the fake decorative flowers but apart from that the room, bathroom and all the bits'n'pieces in the room we very adequate.

              Friendly, considerate, kind staff

              It was great as we received a complimentary room from the motel. At first when we booked the room, the max occupancy is 4 and we have 5 in our group. I was thinking to request for an extra bed so that the room can fit 5 of us. Unfortunately the room has a double + single bed which can only fit 3 of us. The owner (which i guessed he is) of the motel gave us another room next door which allowed us to rest well, he is very generous and kind, and of course friendly all the time. It was my bad for not choosing the correct room however we appreciate his understanding and kindness. The motel is located not far away from Nelson bay, just a few minutes drive, the room is small but tidy and you can't expect too much as it's a motel. We enjoyed our stay and we had a good rest there. Appreciated.

              Tired motel that needs a makeover.”

              Last minute accomodation as travelling down the coast to Sydney. Receptionist helpful. Rooms smelt trouble snd were small tired and concrete cells. Dirty worn nylon carpet snd a bathroom that wasn’t great either. Would never stay here again as it was just depressing unfortunately.

              We enjoyed our stayat this place. The guy at the reception was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He was super friendly and extremely willing to help at any situation. We seriously can’t thank him enough for all his help during our stay. For being a motel this place was really nice.

              Port Stephens Motel was well stocked with all common amenities, crockery, microwave oven, fridge for your needs during your stay. Beds were clean and comfy, and wifi was provided free. Cars could be parked beneath your rooms for free and owner was a friendly and inviting bloke who greeted us during check-in and when we were driving off after check out. Location was a 5min walking distance from the port where you can catch a 1.5hr dolphin watch cruise. Additional necessities could be bought easily at Woolsworth/Coles located a short 8min drive away. All-in-all, its a great place to stay and highly recommended!

              Our stay in Port Stephens Motor Lodge was great. It is not a high end Motel by all means and you get what you pay for. A little more dusting could have helped and an update on the fake decorative flowers but apart from that the room, bathroom and all the bits'n'pieces in the room we very adequate. We would stay there again for a weekend.

              Friendly, considerate, kind staff

              It was great as we received a complimentary room from the motel. At first when we booked the room, the max occupancy is 4 and we have 5 in our group. I was thinking to request for an extra bed so that the room can fit 5 of us. Unfortunately the room has a double + single bed which can only fit 3 of us. The owner (which i guessed he is) of the motel gave us another room next door which allowed us to rest well, he is very generous and kind, and of course friendly all the time. It was my bad for not choosing the correct room however we appreciate his understanding and kindness. The motel is located not far away from Nelson bay, just a few minutes drive, the room is small but tidy and you can't expect too much as it's a motel. We enjoyed our stay and we had a good rest there. Appreciated.
