My partner and I along with another couple stayed in two separate rooms both on the ground floor. We had easy access to our cars and the rooms were very quiet. The rooms were a little dated as far as decor and furnishings go but that didn't bother us as it was kept immaculate. The bed and pillows were comfortable.... More

Large room, clean. All that was necessary for one night stay and close to centre. Blue Lake very blue, we must have been lucky to strike it at the right time in November. Parking can be a bit tricky. Worth a walk around the whole perimeter. Well worth a look. Lots of information boards to explain formation and water use... More

Yes, it's not flash but it is spacious and clean and has everything you need for a stay. Well priced. The only negative I would say is the reception staff are not overly helpful. ..I felt more of an inconvenience then a valued customer.

My partner and I paid extra for the superior room and was given a standard. When we brought this up with the staff and they were not helpful at all. We cancelled our second night. Safe to say I have learnt a few lessons.

Lovely motel to stay at. Close to city centre yet a quiet area at night. Good size rooms with very goods service by all staff. Also includes free continental breakfast & has a cocktail bar, restaurant and a lovely outdoor pool.

The rates are very competitive. Reception was polite and friendly. The bedsheets were clean and the wifi was excellent. This is an old motel and the age shows. At some point, some refurbishment was done. I was going to say overall the room was clean as well, until I found some cobwebs at a corner of the room just before... More

To say we were mortified, as you were, with our room visitor would be an understatement. As mentioned we took all every action we could have, to remedy what was an unfortunate event, and were confident that the issue was resolved after speaking to your management team who told us they were completely satisfied with the outcome.

We stayed at this place for 2 nights while touring the Limestone Coast region. To reach Econo Lodge, travel along Jubilee Highway East till you see the accommodation (marked by the red-coloured sign) on your right. The above-mentioned instructions are for the ones coming from Adelaide, and they are furnished by the management in the booking confirmation page. However, I... More

Stopped in Mount Gambier after driving the Great Ocean Rd. Hotel is right on the highway so easy to access while travelling. The owners were very nice and the room was a good quality. Few problems with the internet, but was still able to use it. Continental breakfast the next morning was much appreciated.
