Pros: View and all needs within walking distance
Cons: Bathroom a bit dated, but still functional.
Location: Love Swansea it is a lovely location to holiday
The Ocean View room is large and comfortable. The view to the bay and easy access to the beach which is right in front of you makes this stay worthwhile. Everything you need is also within walking distance. eg pub and iga. Will stay again. Thank you.

Great reception and experience
Posted Jan 15, 2012
Pros: Upgraded room and kitchen facilities.
Cons: The young person at the reception at later hours was friendly but not knowlegable.
Location: Right in town across from grocery store and on the beach - great location.
We were not in high season but the owner gave us an upgrade to our room to make it easier to store our bicycles. This was very much appreciated as we did not ask for it. The place is clean and the room was large and comfortable.

Location: Only a small town, so within walking distance to most amenities.
Overall it was ok considering it is only a small town. Stayed 2 nights, and used it as a base to travel to other places from there. Only supermarket closes at about 5.30pm, so don't forget to stock up.

a place to stop over on our East Coast drive

everything was nice except that we froze! At this time of year, you need heat, and there was one heater in the room that we had to have on MAX all night because the ceiling had a high peak so it was hard for the room to get warm. The bathroom was freezing so we had to move the heater into it for a while. The room is very nice, the kitchen area was nice, the staff were friendly. The town seemed dead, with not much going on or choice of places to eat. If this was summer, it would have been much nicer and not much to complain about. Overall, the cold is not their fault, and I would stay here again!

Typical motel. The water in the room is untreated river water so they recommend drinking bottled water. They sell it for $2 per bottle. Would have been nice if they gave you several free bottles or if they installed their own water treatment system. Our room overlooked the beach, but there are rooms that didn't have a view of the ocean. Nice view and breeze from the ocean. Located across a grocery store.

Motel is right on the beach and has a really nice ocean view, and some units have lanai's but the quarters are pretty spartan, beds a bit tired. Bathrooms are clean, but worn. No internet access. Front desk service is spotty (8-8 only). Don't try to check in after 8P.
