Rooms are basic but have all you need. Could do with more attention on the cleaning though, especially at $290 a night on a public holiday.

There was everything you need from a motel, but the carpet was very stained and the air conditioner and mattresses could do with an update, but overall a neat, well located motel that met all expectations.

Great location! On the esplanade (beach opposite) great eateries in walking distance. The room in the bedroom was very light with a window up high so made sleeping in difficult.
