I had a work meeting to attend on my way to Canberra and stayed here with my partner. The room was cheap which ensure my expectations were rightly adjusted. The room was clean and functional. It is an easy walk to the town centre for lunch or dinner and is on the highway running through town.

This is certainly a no-frills motel but if you're on a budget it is adequate. The decor and furnishings are very drab and have a distinctly 1980s feel about it. We stayed in an upstairs one bedroom family unit with a double and single bed in the main room and 2 singles in the bedroom. Our sleep quality was not... More

I'm writing this review from inside the motel room. It was a last minute decision for me to stop over on the long drive to Melbourne during peak holiday time. Luckily the midtown had a room available, and didn't charge extortionate prices - they could have done so as almost everywhere else between here and Orbost was fully booked. On... More

I pulled back the covers to discover curly hairs in the bed. My room smelt like poo and the lady at the front desk kept asking me what I wanted as if I was an intruder. I felt frightened to ask for anything as it was met with the the white hot fury of a thousand suns. My only escape... More

Well located motel with clean & comfy room. Heater/aircon is noisy but effective - I don't leave it on as i sleep so didn't bother me. Restaurant in house - my meals were delicious & the steak is huge (so big you can order half size meal!). Staff are super friendly and accommodating. My room was very quiet too. You... More

Good motel for travellers, not 5 star but welcoming staff and decent rooms. The on site restaurant serves, again, decent food at reasonable prices. I stay here every time I am in town and will continue to do so.

Felt like I took a time travel trip back in 1970 complete with cigarette smelling air conditioner that sounded like a 747, rock hard bed, very old wood grain decor , very tiny little LCD TV, and a chair from the 1970 op shop that kept falling apart. Needs a complete updating, and refit. Really not what I expect from... More

At first we were confused with what appeared to be two Midtown motels, opposite each other on the highway, but on booking into the one, we found that they were the same motel. The staff were helpful and friendly both in the motel and in the restaurant. The rooms though small were clean and comfortable with the front doors leading... More

Room was clean but very small. Tiny tv but adequate. no shampoo or conditioner. Restaurant provided pleasant meals at reasonable prices. Staff very friendly. Internet provided was inadequate unless you paid $10 extra. Bed was very hard.
