El Lago Waters Motel, The Entrance
Excellent4.0 / 5
Dated, but comfortable clean.
The hotel would have been very fancy 40 years ago, it's dated but the beds and linen were clean fresh and comfortable as well as a good size - we had a queen bed and two singles and still plenty of space. It's opposite the water and a close walk to all that the Entrance has to offer.

Fair2.0 / 5
Convenient location but in need of TLC.
Unfortunately the motel is in need of refurbishment/maintenance and our stay was disappointing. The exterior - rusty sign, mouldy umbrellas, pot holes in the carpark, neglected gardens. The room - peeling shower floor, marked walls, old furnishings. The bed was comfortable and the linen and towels were clean. The TV was small, there were no wine glasses and only basic tea/coffee making. The motel is convenient to the shops, park and waterfront.

The room was musty and in need of painting, particularly the bathroom.The worst motel I have stayed.

Fair2.0 / 5
Not good
Not good - very ordinary. Hot water/pressure unavailable more than once. Toilet leaked continually. (thankfully housekeeping provided extra towels to mop it up). Paint peeling off ceiling. Bed was very hard and uncomfortable. Carpark is full of old mattress's. Pool is green. No restaurant. Staff were friendly but receptionist didn't care when advised about bathroom floor constantly being wet due to toilet leaking. Such a shame as it is in a great location to restaurants,shopping, foreshore.

Great location but that's it!!!
The hotel is drab ,with old and mouldy mattresses ,old couches piled high in the car park.The hotel just doesn't have a pleasant feel about it.Its in a great location and probably does well at peak times simply because of its location.We paid for our accomodation only to leave and drive home because it just was not a pleasant place to be.I would not recommend this hotel at all.
