Port Macquarie Motel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A lovely lady runs this establishment and there were some nice touches such as biscuits with the tea and coffee but overall not much to recommend it. At $150 for a family room a queen bed was cramped into a small room along with three singles, leaving barely enough room to manoeuvre between them. The bathroom was tiny with a sloping, wonky floor and an unpleasant smell. The wifi didn't work and the traffic noise was overwhelming. We didn't raise these issues with management as we were only passing through for one night but we've stayed in far superior hotels for a much more reasonable price.

Great budget motel. After reading all the reviews I have to say this motel has improved and cannot fault it. It is very basic and cosy. Linen was fresh and clean. Shower pressure was amazing. Couldn't hear traffic from our room. Yes it does look a little outdated but it shows the history and how original the motel is. And yes we had milk, toilet paper and other essentials. If you need tissues why don't you bring your own. Would stay there again. Thank you

Basic but comfortable......good shower, comfy bed! Don't know about FREE WIFI BUT!!!!! Up the cleanliness and it would rate a little higher! The location is good, and easy to find. Would stay again if in the area.

Checked in Christmas Eve just for the overnight. Room basic but appeared clean except for strong smell of air freshener. During night woke up and noticed pillows and sheets had blood over them. Not from me. Obviously not changed bed linen from previous guest. Advised Manager and he apologised blaming woman who did rooms. No offer of compensation. Wouldn't stay here again.

For a $100.00 a night I was appalled.Room was dirty, exhaust fan and ceiling fan were both putrid, shower curtain had urine stains,bathroom shelf had toothpaste all over it.No milk given upon check in.No tissues in room and an overpowering smell of air freshner.Do not stay here if you want a clean room for the night.

I arrived late in town and this place had a room. Normally not my style room very basic and rate was $85 so don't expect much. That said it had air con, was clean and the manager was friendly. Shower very old and tea coffee facilities

If you are travelling past Port Macquarie and want a basic room at a budget price, can not fault this motel The room was clean and all fixtures functional and the value is included free fast internet wifi access for the entire stay at the motel The room also includes Foxtel, off street parking outside the room and a modern reverse cycle air conditioner The location also offers fast access to the pacific highway for travelling either north or South when checking out

Nice place to have a shower and go to bed. Little dated in the bathroom, but in ok condition. Room was clean. Cant really fault it. Very helpful staff, made a quick booking online, stupidly booked the wrong date, turned up late, but i was still accommodated, very thankful for that. Close to fast food places, car wash next door. Only bad thing I could say about it is the driveway, its pretty steep, ended up damaging my car (Partly my fault) So beware if you drive a lowered car.

Pretty standard pub. Been modernized big Tab. Seems some locals drink here. Not much atmosphere. The facade of pub is great. Classic. The beer selection pretty mainstream and basic. Busy during holiday times. Shame more of period architecture features of pub not kept. Ok place and beer is cold.

This is possibly the worst motel we've stayed in and at a grossly overcharged price. Even if the price was priced accordingly, would not stay again but at $228 for the night, we were totally overcharged and have paid much less for much better quality. It was the last place available for accommodation for an overnight stay with our daughter, to break up a long drive. We wished we hadn't booked and would have slept better in the car than this motel. We arrived in the evening and we were shocked. The motel is very old and shabby and had an overpowering smell of air freshener.It was very basic, dirty and noisy. None of us slept well and left early in the morning as soon as we could. If we had any choice we would not have stayed the night. Spoke to the manager a couple of days later who did not care about what we had to say, except we didn't need to stay there. There was no one around to speak to when we arrived. If our credit card had not been charged, we would not have stayed. The manager offered nothing, just incorrect comparisons for pricing for other accommodation in the area. Do not even book this motel as the last option.
