Staying with wife and daughter (10), Having spent near week in Morwell we moved to Traralgon and found Connell's very accommodating, friendly, and pleasant to stay in. With Free Wi Fi, breakfasts and central location. Good rooms, clean and tidy. Very much worth the stay.

As part of a driving holiday with 2 adults and 2 kids, we stayed one night. Was checked in by acting manager while the owners were on a well deserved break. A bit brusque on arrival, but checked in to the family room (room 11). Booked based on Previous reviews, but no one mentioned that one of the family rooms... More

Despite a great stay, reception was rude. Otherwise things were clean and well appointed. Beds were above average. Room was Good value. Otherwise typical motel room amenities. Happy with the stay but given the otherwise awesome reviews we were a bit shocked.

We had a family event to attend in La Trobe valley and decided on Traralgon as the main stop. We chose Connells Motel based on previous reviews as well as the availability of the apartment for two couples to share. Our experience was faultless. Check-in was friendly and professional. Joe showed us through the apartment and answered any questions we... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Connells and again, I couldn't fault it. Clean, crisp bedding and lots of space makes this room a luxury for a small price. Great customer service and a complimentary breakfast adds to the value. Will always recommend to anyone who needs to stay in Traralgon or the Valley!

Booked a motel room for one night on a quick business trip in the area. Upon check-in I was given a free upgrade to the self-contained apartment next door... efficient heating, spotlessly clean, giant TV, WiFi included, spa bath, fluffy white towels, complimentary continental breakfast... could not ask for more really. Super impressed that the owner (Joe) called me to... More

My stay at the Connells Motel recently (a work trip) could not be faulted. Customer service is a huge thing for me, and I am so pleased that there are people like Joe out there (the owner/manager). He was terrific to us and would go out of his way to assist! A great bloke. I was fortunate enough to be... More

We would recommend them to anyone seeking a very pleasant, comfortable, reasonably priced motel. We were welcomed by a very friendly manager who organised our booking quickly and efficiently. Our breakfast was also delicious. As visitors from WA we will certainly recommend them to other travellers.

Never judge a book by its cover. Or you would drive past this great accommodation. While it looked a little jaded from the outside, it was perfect for our needs. We were greeted by friendly, helpful staff as we checked in - and the subsequent staff we dealt with did not change our views. The externals of the motel were... More
