Very disappointing stay. Staff had made a mistake with the dates of the booking and even when they discovered the mistake was entirely on their end they still acted as if it was my own fault and never apologised at all, quite rude. I ate in their attached restaurant but it took almost 1h 45m to get 2 courses even... More

We booked with Wotif. I requested a room for 3 adults and was allocated 1 queen and a single bed - $194.50. For the price I had assumed this would be a fairly decent hotel, not at all. Grotty, rude, run down, loud A/C, teeny bathroom, very dirty walkways - they were last swept about 20 years ago is my... More

Decided to try a different hotel than my regular while staying in Geelong for business. Bad mistake! The room is dark and very noisy from both road noise and other guests and the manager down stairs yelling and swearing. Room is clean and updated and bed is comfortable. Heater is extremely loud so can't turn on while sleeping or watching... More

Not the worst budget-priced motel we have stayed at but certainly not the best. We began with a struggle to start the A/C, shivered until the host helped us. No instructions in the room! "Room with a view of the bay", yes, if you walked and stood at the window. The electric jug refused to function and there was one... More

Good location but very poor service. Small ensuite, no free wifi, extremely noisy and manager with bad attitude. Staff have changed since we had previously stayed here. Tried to alter a booking over the phone prior to arriving - took four calls to succeed in changing our dates because the staff couldn't do it. Very noisy restaurant staff cleaning up... More

This has been by far the worst place I have stayed at in the last few years. It is self(?)-rated as a 4 star place, but it does not deserve more than 1. And that only, because probably doesn't leak when it rains. The entire place is run down and grubby, and it reminds me of country motels some 30... More

Stayed there for one night before flying out in Avalon. Worst night ever!! The air-con was deafening that if you want to sleep you have to turn it off and suffer Melbourne's freezing Winter. Ask the desk to ring me in my room to discuss early check-out. After still haven't heard anything from the desk for one hour, I realised... More

Stayed here on a trip from Adelaide to Melbourne, it served its purpose as a stop over. The exterior and car park are definitely NOT 4*standard, they are run down and scruffy. The room was dark and quite noisy, however it had envy thing we needed for a stop over. I would not stay here for more than one night.... More

We stayed at this Motel last night, first mistake of the day! The air conditioner is out of the ark (and on observation they were the same in every room) it actually sounded like a jack hammer, impossible to sleep with it operating. The room soon became stuffy with it off but we didn't have a choice, it was horrendous!... More
