Well equipped for a motel room”

Friendly lady at reception who gave us a very useful map of Merimbula and highlighted the route to the beaches, lagoon and Woolworth supermarket. Excellent location near the main shopping area so everything in easy walking distance and petrol station opposite . Had a deluxe room, which had a very comfy bed and was clean apart from dozens of ants in the kitchenette area. Ant spray was in the cupboard under the sink, so a good spray of the area soon fixed that problem. Good wifi, good view over pool which I had intended to use but didn't as unfortunately it was foggy that day though others were swimming happily and using the BBQ area. Good food at the RSL cub 5 minutes walk. I haven't stayed in a motel for over 20 years as we usually stay in a 4* hotel or hire an apartment , but this was for an overnight stop. I'd say it was pretty good and would stay again, in a deluxe room as I like my comfort. This place was fine so I recommend it.

Great Place to Stay!”

We stayed for one night over the weekend and would definitely stay again. We we’re upgraded at no charge to a 2 bedroom as we arrived early and our room wasn’t ready which was super nice. The Lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was close to the beach and shops. The room had really nice and fresh smell. The rooms were extremely clean. Comfy bed , clean fresh sheets. Cooking facilities available in the room which was handy. Nice balcony with a view. Value for money would highly recommend. Merimbula is such a lovely town, we will be back!

Excellent place for the money

we stayed on a trip from sydney to melbourne. we initially only booked for one night, but after receiving a free room upgrade and checking out the room, we decided to stay an extra night. an extra bonus being we got the extra night at the same price as the first that we had got from wotif. excellent location and clean, well maintained rooms. i would definatley use again and would recommend. i have stayed at other motels on the same street but this is the best that i have used in the area.

well equipped for a longer stay.

We were there for an overnight stop, however motel room is well equipped for a longer stay. There is a kitchenette in the room, very sufficiently equipped in my opinion, complete with dishwashing detergent which was a first for me! Otherwise very well kept and spacious. Woolworths and a few restaurants located nearby. Host was also very pleasant.

Hotel is right in town so walking distance to everywhere. There is a supermarket accross the road and a kitchenette in the room so practical in that sense.

Nice staff, good facilities, in the centre of town, pool.

We only stayed for 1 night but we had everything we needed, mini kitchenette with toaster, kettle and selection of crokery and cutlery. Large bathroom with good shower. TV and aircon/heater in room. On the ground floor our room had patio doors that opened onto a small patio area with table and 2 chairs. Downsides would be the aircon unit was very noisy, wi-fi was available although very expensive, only your first 50mb were free. Overall though, very happy with our stay.

The perfect one nighter”

Frindly staff, clean rooms, comfortable queen size bed, convenient location

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our way back to Sydney. Being one of the cheaper places in the area our expectations were not high. However we were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by a lovely lady who greeted us by name before we even introduced ourselves. Arriving in the evening we received a free upgrade to a larger room, which had everything we needed for a good night stay including a must for us - a comfortable queen size bed. Located across the road from the local Chinese restaurant w had a lovely dinner, then followed up with a great nights sleep. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Nice one nighter on the way south.”

Laid back costal town feel.

Was just looking for an over nighter on the way through to Victoria. An easy relaxed atmosphere, nothing fancy, but captures the coastal holiday vibe. The only thing I overlooked was that the 'budget room' does not have an airconditioner. Whilst it does come with a fan, there is no front window to open, and only a small back window - so no cross ventilation, and it got pretty muggy. Just something to be aware of if you are planning to spend a bit of time there in the warmer months.
