Probably worth 3 1/2 stars. Stayed on a weeknight and even so the place was fairly well patronised. I suspect it was the deal including room and breakfast for $140. Bed was comfortable and the breakfast (continental) was adequate. One could get bacon eggs etc at extra cost if desired. Main complaint was the cold coffee - if one did... More

Our car broke down out of Ballarat and our tow truck driver recommended this motel whilst the car was to be repaired. As it was a busy time in Ballarat with a rowing competition, many motels were occupied so our truck driver dropped off my wife at Mid City Motor Inn to book one of their last two rooms whilst...

I found my room to be very clean and comfortable. The large bed was bliss. The hotel staff were friendly, and there are many lovely restaurants and cafes in the area. As other reviewers have mentioned, noise can be an issue. I stayed on a Saturday night, and could hear loud music coming from a bar or nightclub nearby. Luckily,... More

The central location of this motel was the best feature. Unfortunately the rooms were very old and "tired". The bathroom was extremely old, with older-style tiles and amenities. The room had a heater which was great for the cold Ballarat winter weather. There were also electric blankets on the bed, which was comfortable. The let-down of this property is the... More

Location and value for money are the advantages of this older style motel. Located in the cbd area with many restaurants etc in walking distance. The rooms are old style, clean, comfortable with TV fridge and normal facilities. Outdoor pool and on siet parking for the ground and first floor units. On site bar and breakfast facilities, or just go... More

We spent the Queens Birthday weekend in Ballarat at the Mid City Motel. I found the room to be very outdated as far as decor however, it was warm which for Ballarat in the winter is important. We are a family of 4 and were accommodated in a double bed, single bed and rollaway. This made the room quite tight... More
