2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
On arrival with my young son was met by the elderly female front desk clerk with the words "we don't allow families here". Not a particularly warm reception. Room was ok, carpet was the type where you don't want to take off your socks. Killed a small cockroach in the fridge area. View from the balcony was the back wall of another building. Pool upstairs was full of dead bees. Was definitely not worth the $159 I paid.

A wonderful stay for Australia Day!
We had an amazing stay at Nelson Towers Motel. My partner and I would strongly recommend this property. The owners were super friendly and so kind - a true family-run business. Check-in was easy and quick. The location was amazing. Literally right in the middle of Nelson Bay and across from the marina and a short walk to the beach. Cafes and restaurants at your doorstep. The hotel itself was well kept (the rooftop pool area was also spotless and a great spot to relax with amazing views!). Our room was comfortable and very clean. Loved our stay - we’ll be back!
