We only had an overnight stay at this motel on our way up the coast, but as I hadn't visited Lakes Entrance before we decided on this motel because of the proximity to the water as displayed on the website. Although the motel was very clean, roomy and comfortable and the lady at reception was helpful, the main road actually passes in front of the motel with the Lake on the other side. It was a very quiet time when we were there prior to Easter so it was difficult to tell, but to me this place didn't seem to be at the centre of town as indicated, but rather the end of town. It was only a couple of minutes drive to the hotel and restaurants, but a little too far to walk comfortably. It is difficult to give a review on the basis of 1 night only as we didn't see the pool at all, but I just wanted to advise people that the location isn't as it appears in the photo on the website where it appears to be by the sand. less

Happy to hear you found your room clean, roomy and comfortable. All of our rooms are set a little back on the block, close enough to the lakes but far enough away from the busy highway. We get great reviews how quiet the rooms are all year round, which is wonderful. Our motel is located less than 500 meters to the footbridge which takes you over to the beautiful 90mile beach which is what most of our guests come to Lakes Entrance for...beach beach beach!. We are located only a 5 mins walk to the nearest cafes, restaurants, bank, chemist and small supermarket. But if your after Country Target, Millers or the Post Office then according to the wonderful Google maps Coastal Waters is only 1.4km away or a lovely 18 minute stroll along the waters edge.
From all the team at Best Western Coastal Waters
