We booked this hotel at last minute. As we were heading to the footy. Easy , quick check in. Off street parking free. Two story hotel , so maybe if any mobility difficulties mention at time of booking, as my partner had just had a knee reconstruction so it was a little difficult with stairs. Rooms are basic. But comfortable.... More

I knew exactly what to expect from this Motel (as in being a touch dated) but it was clean,quiet,comfortable,access to outside balcony and a decent size TV and great Pay Tv channels. Close to everything in the CBD. I was comfortable and had a fabo night's sleep. Thank you

After reading other reviews we were a little anxious about our stay. Easy to find & so close to Westfield shopping centre. Check-in was fast & friendly. Room was clean & comfortable, yes it is dark but ok once you get used to it. Bathroom was fine, bed comfortable & pillow choice was perfect. Walking distance to Eastern beach, perfect... More

I stayed here knowing it was a budget hotel but this took it to a whole new limit. We stayed on a long weekend so we paid $220 a night! It was a small, dirty very old room. The bathroom was so dirty we chose not to shower as a cleaner option. As for the staff they were extremely rude.... More

The room was pretty small, all of the fittings and décor were very old and outdated. everything was brown. there was a fair bit of dust. there were two bedside lamps, but no light-bulbs in either one. way overpriced.

We knew it was a budget motel, but threadbare towels with holes in them? And the spider under the pillow wasn't good either. After my husband had a shower, he walked barefoot on the carpet and his feet got dirty! YUKK! The saving grace was that it was walking distance to town, restaurants, the waterfront, and free parking. The staff... More

I stayed here with my partner for two nights because his father in law went into cardiac arrest and was flown to the Geelong hospital to be stabalised. The location was good, close to the hospital which was handy. We stayed in Room 3 and there was no exhaust fan for the bathroom causing mould and there was no drain... More

We found the service fantastic and very friendly. After running late - beyond our control - we finally made it and were greeted by an understanding owner. We were also lucky enough to be upgraded to a deluxe suite. The room was very clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay at this motel again!!

Good location, clean rooms, friendly staff, tea, coffee and toaster in room. Everything we needed for a quick visit to Geelong on the way to the airport. Electric blankets on the bed were appreciated.

Stayed for only a night returning from a day trip down to the Great Ocean Road. Exceeds expectations for a motel room. The room was spacey and comfy. The decor is a bit dated but good value for money.
