Stayed here for a couple nights while setting up a new store in town which was only a few minutes walk away. The room I stayed in was neat, very clean and they had great soft towels to use. The man who helped us book the rooms was very helpful and always did a little bit extra - coming up... More

I agree with everything said by the reviewers below... great location, very friendly and accommodating staff. The motel needs upgrading but I believe this is in hand. For me the very best part of the Central City Motor Inn was the food. The chef has a real talent! Food prices were a bit steep for a motel but the quality... More

After a big day out at Passing Clouds Winery in Musk (near Daylesford), we were looking forward to a clean, modern and comfortable room for our stay in Ballarat. Well, this was exactly what we got and for a very reasonable rate as well. We would definitely look to staying here again and the same was said for the rest... More

Being met by friendly staff is always a good start. We were able to access the room earlier than scheduled which also helped. The room was clean, a good size with all the normal requirements you would expect. The mattress on each bed were good, unlike a lot of motel styled accommodation these days. The location worked well for us... More

Recently spent two nights here, ideal location, walking distance to city CBD and surrounded by a variety of restaurants with Coles supermarket close by. The room was clean,tidy and ideal for short stay trips, the kitchen area was suitably equipped to dine in. Would stay again

My first impression was a friendly, early checkin -- most appreciated. The room was very clean & well equipped without being overly special. Minimum road noise. The bacon & eggs for breakfast were good but the coffee --- Because of the location we were able to park the car & walk to everything. Good value & we would return if... More

We had a great time during our visit. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, the breakfast was well cooked and delivered with a smile. The motel was so close to everything we could've walked everywhere we need to go if we were staying longer. We'll definitely be back again.
