Ten of us travelling together
Last 2 couples were booked into a studio each. At $100 each pn we were expecting more. The internet advertised these rooms at $95 .The rooms were very small , no room to sit. No aircon, no wifi. The shower was in a laundry One of the rooms had a broken window.
We were told by managment they were budget rooms which was not clear when 5 rooms were booked together
We asked to be moved and were moved into the only available rooms which was a 2 bed apartment sharing a bathroom between 4. There was much more room and a better option, costing $200.
Still no aircon or wifi but had a heater
The blankets were old and worn and thin
Good shower but had to step into a fiberglass small tub. No soap, shampoo etc.
Kitchenette well equiped with good size fridge,stove and microwave
The manager was a very obliging lady and did her best for us
The rest of our party had a standard room each which was adequate
Motel is central to town
No foxtel in our room. I do believe that rooms varied in quality throughout the building

We enjoyed our three night stay here very much, in a suite room. The room was well equipped and furnished, cleaned tô a good standard and the staff were efficient and friendly. It's conveniently located opposite a supermarket and petrol station, within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. The place has a dated but charming retro style.

We stayed for two nights at the South Seas Motel. It is located in the middle of town, so we could leave the car and walk to the shops, cafes, and Lakeview Hotel for dinner. The room appeared to be recently renovated although the bathroom looked a little dated. The sign at the front of the hotel advertises free wifi, although it is not available in the rooms. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The lady who checked us in was friendly, polite, and gave us tips on things to do while in Merimbula. We stayed in the Deluxe room and it was lovely to have a balcony that overlooked peaceful gardens. The room was clean, with daily room service. We would stay here again. :)

We spent two nights in Merimbula at the end of a trip and we wanted a place that was very central to the town. The South seas motel fulfilled that requirement, and the price was very low. We were "upgraded" on arrival to a suite with 5 beds and a full kitchen, and that was fine, but the room was very tired and hardly anything worked. Most light fittings did not have bulbs, the kitchen and bathroom was well overdue for refurbishment. Our bed was fine, but there was no side table of any kind.
While we were very happy with the location right in the centre of town, and happy with the price as well, we would not choose to stay in this place again. There are many other better choices.

The internet was advertised as available, but there was a sign in our room saying it as not available in our room.

Room Tip: We could not recommend this place

From the outside this motel looks pretty average but it is situated within walking distance of just about everything and the new owners have commenced renovating the units and in fact we stayed in #9 which had been renovated very recently to a good standard,for the price charged. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Room #9 it is away from the main road.
