We received a warm welcome from very friendly and efficient staff. The room was basic, and a little dated, but scrupulously clean. The bed was very comfy - more so after we found the spare pillows in the chest of drawers. Highly recommended.

We were driving to the Great Ocean Road and wanted an inexpensive place to stay for one night. The Econo Lodge fit the bill. It's an older building and could use some updating, but was comfortable enough for our needs. The staff was friendly and helpful in directing us to a local restaurant, as well as a few tips for...

The Econo Lodge was about 15 min walk from the main street. It was a very good price with lovely front office staff. The room was so clean and tidy that I had to jump on the bed. ..( Sorry. ....I couldn't help it)....haha

Shower & bathroom really small, only one towel rail for a room that can sleep up to 3. When we first arrived I noticed we only had... More

Thank you for your review. I apologise that you felt upset with the receptionist. The reason we ask for your room number is to ensure the housekeeping staff are finishing the rooms to the guest's satisfaction. If there are not enough towels for the guests, we need to find the reason that has happened. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the request... More

We had an overnight stop here, it was very cheap to stay and as such delivered for the price we paid. There was a strange airfreshner smell in the room, and the shower was tiny, and furnishings old. However it was clean, and I didn't think we would have a good nights sleep, but we both slept really well. There... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. Free and good working wifi. Sights and center with restaurants can be reached by car in minutes. Good recommendation for restaurant. Rooms average, rather old but comfortable.

Stayed overnight for business and while I would normally use a higher star rating motel, found this an excellent choice. While older and aspects dated, very clean and well cared for in the room. Late checkin after office closing was no problem. Bed very comfortable and linen quite new. Manager very friendly and helpful. Good choice if looking for no... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a family room. Perfect for us as we were out all day and only needed a cool room. The air con was already on when we arrived so was a great relief from a hot drive. Beds were comfortable and facilities were clean. The pool was cold but on a 38 degree day we... More
