We stayed here on our drive from Melbourne up to Sydney in December 2014. This was our first night on the road as we were so surprised at how lovely this motel was! Firstly, the owners were so friendly and welcoming. They showed us the delicious breakfast menu and then led us to our room and it was huge! The... More

Nice reasonably sized rooms and clean. Wi-Fi was free for 2 hours per day. Only 10-15 minutes walk into the main part of town. Very reasonably priced. I was here on business and was happy with everything.

Very clean and spotless motel (the cleanest I've seen) with great breakfast options! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the place was close to the city center with supermarkets nearby. The only gripe I would have is that the wifi is free only for 2 hours -- it really should be free like almost every other place.The host and... More

Small standard type rooms well laid out, what stands out most is that the room that we were in was the cleanest of any motel I have ever stayed in. We will definitely stay here again next time we over night in Traralgon. It is a real pleasure to find a clean motel room bath room and all.

Just stayed overnight on 26th August, our room was spotlessly clean with everything you need. Certainly value for money and friendly staff who happily changed our room so that I didn't have to climb stairs after recent knee surgery. Would stay again anytime.

A great low cost base from which to tour the area. 15 minute walk into town and 45 minute drive to Walhalla. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable (not old and squidgy like some motels!) Very friendly and helpful owners.
