Great location quiet central & close walk to centre of town & beaches. Has areas to sit outside opposite room. The breakfast included in the room rate is great πŸ‘ & the management are nice. We booked the motel as a last minute trip to Lakes Entrance & were very happy πŸ˜ƒ with our choice. Would stay again or recommend. Overall great value for what you pay per night. Thanks for a great stay!

Morning Dee, sorry to here you were so disappointed with your stay. The carpets get cleaned every 3 months like clock work. They are due to be done now the busy summer season is over when it is a bit quieter. As far as the dirty showers and beds go I have real hesitations as to wether you even stayed with us. That is absolute crap. The bathrooms are spotless as they should be. The bed linen is spotless as it should be. As you have not left your name and we had no booking for anyone by that first name I not sure what room you were in if any at all. We are all entitled to our own opinions but if you were so unhappy with your stay you are under no obligation to stay. Your review does not reflect the majority of our other 400 reviews on this site. We work hard to ensure all of our guests are comfortable and a have a pleasant stay.

The room was clean and what you would expect from a budget motel. Easy walk to the lagoon, beach and Main Street.
