I was only here for night as I was in town for the marathon. As a single traveller, it did the job. Spotlessly clean, a small complimentary breakfast of toast and cereal, friendly and fuss fee reception, easy to find right off the freeway. Heater worked fantastic and I even had a little balcony. I didn't really notice any cupboard... More

Very neat and self contained. Amiable receptionist. Breakfast well served. Definite recommendation! Focal point to all the attractions in Walhalla. The pizzas from the Pizza chef was amazing too. Overall a pleasant and weekend pick.

Stayed overnight on a recent trip and was really impressed. Warm welcome, spotless room, comfortable bed and great nights sleep. All for a low price. They aren't trying to be the hilton, but deliver solid, quality accommodation which is perfect for someone passing through town on holiday or business. Would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed in the house next door to the motel. It was adequate. The rooms are clean and well maintained. As it away from the highway the sound was no issue. Off street parking was good. The motel is a friendly place. We only stayed the one night but would have been comfortable with a much longer stay.

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment (it is actually a renovated house) we often travel to Gippsland for family events. In the future this will be the first place we seek to stay. Very reasonable rate for this roomy apartment. Staff were welcoming even allowing us to check in at midday as we had a 2pm wedding to attend.... More

We stayed on a Saturday evening in a ground floor room and found very welcoming staff, a clean and spotless room and bathroom and comfortable bed. It's not the flashiest of rooms but it's great value for the price and it's clean and comfortable and despite being on the highway, could not hear any late night traffic. The reason for... More

The Connelly Motel in Traralgon can be a little difficult to find due to the way the streets have been named in Traralgon. It's on the Melbourne side of Traralgon. This is a very comfortable motel with good sized bedrooms and bathroom, and all the features you would expect, including fast and strong free wifi connection. The motel is on... More

We stayed in the very back room which was clean and well maintained with all requirements covered. Great value for $99 including a continental breakfast. Being on the main highway there was some traffic noise during peak times but quiet during the evening. The owner Joe was very friendly and welcoming. He offered a selection to choose from for breakfast... More
