Harbour View Motor Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Hastings
Reviewed 19 January 2018 via mobile

I have stayed at the Harbour View numerous times but I think this will be my last. Room 27 has an old adjoining door into room 26 and though the door furniture has been removed the gaps around the doorway remain which means not only could I hear my neighbour's every word while on his mobile I could also hear the reply from the other person. Made the room just way to noisy as TV, everything just seemed to be broadcast into my room. Then at 11:15pm my smoke detector started chirping. As the motel is not manned by staff in the evening I call the mobile number on the office window. "yes that has happened once before" I was told, "stand on the chair and take the battery out". Even after the battery was removed the thing continued to chirp every few minutes for the next half an hour. Sigh! Not a pleasant stay I'm afraid.

Stayed: January 2018, travelled solo

This was one of the closest places to HMAS Cerberus and I needed a room close to the naval base as I had no car. There was no Harbour view that I could see but it was within walking distance to the train station and staff were friendly when I was delayed and needed an 11pm check-in. The room was ok for one night but it was a little outdated and didnt look like the picture above.

Named Harbour View, however a view of the Harbour is/was non existent
Only motel in Hastings so we had limited choice as we were attending a wedding and needed to be with in walking distant of the township
Motel very out dated, uninspiring decor, carpet old and dirty, bathroom depressing with old dirty shower cubicle , hand basin needed a clean before we used, bed linen was clean , we used both double and single bed as the mattress on double bed was very uneven and really suitable for one person only, single was reasonably comfortable
Very eerie feeling about the place, no security lights or yard lights on or came when we entered the grounds on return late night flimsy main / entrance door to room so not a feeling of safety during night or indeed any time during our brief stay

My inquiry of possible breakfast was met with less than an enthusiastic response, costs quote were exorbitant for toast etc, toaster in the room but no plates etc and non offered when I inquired if we could bring some bread etc to make coffee and toast , no suggestions offered where we may be able to get breakfast in local area
After reading Trip Advisor reviews we were not expecting luxury but for the price $135.00 AUD we did expect a cleaner room, and more interest from staff
The attitude of gentleman when booking was take it or not and as it is the only motel in town we were left with no choice.
Would not recommend to anyone to stay
A very depressing place in dire need of attention

Room Tip: Don't stay at all

I should have read the reviews before booking. The place is in need of a refurbish. Everything is so old. The surrounds could be quite nice if they were maintained. The carpet in the rooms is very old and very dirty, They provide a daily service but we had to ask for things to be replace, like toilet paper. The floors when we came back each day were not cleaned, the crumbs that were there when we left were there when we got back. The pillows are very low and hard to sleep on. The bench as very dirty and sticky. Not a place I would stay at again, which is a shame as it could be a lovely place to stay.
For the price you pay to stay there the facilities should be up to date. A budget price you expect conditions like this, but when you pay a big price you should get better for your money.

Not that I was expecting a Park Hyatt experience!! I think I was actually the only person staying at the property (which made it even creepier).
The room was very old and tried, with sticky and filthy carpet. The mattress was so worn and 'springy' I had a sore back the next day. If anyone wanted to break in to the room it would be very easy, no security screens and just a latch on the door to the back outside area. Back area had seating and a table, but the amount of mould from the dripping air-conditioner and the build up of leaves suggested it hadn't been cleaned in years. The air-conditioner (old-fashioned square wall type) was too loud to have on at night, and the 'Harbour View' consisted of overgrown bush that was clearly a fire hazard. The grounds had obviously not been attended to for some time and the bathroom was not clean. I needed to call reception for something, the phone didn't work at all. Cigarette burns in the carpet, stained curtains, brown water leaking around bathroom taps and a very stained couch that I wouldn't even consider sitting on (stains in hotels are a phobia of mine!!).
I don't expect luxury when I stay in rural areas, but this one is a 'definitely never again'. It's not hard to achieve a modern, clean interior in old properties.

Room Tip: Probably better off staying somewhere else
