This is a nice motel located right on hwy M1 which makes it very easy to get to. The room nice size with a queen size bed, large desk and two easy chairs, very modern and up to date. There is small kitchen with a refrigerator and a continental breakfast. Clean bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff and reasonably price.

A clean, recently renovated family room. A double bed and 2 singles in the room. I like the electric (operated by a press of a button) black out shades as it made you forget that your room is facing princess highway. Check in was efficient, cleanliness is good, no complain

We booked Connells off the internet, at a great price with a continental breakfast included. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the shower hot with good water pressure. Although the breakfast was simple (cereal and toast), it was a nice addition and meant we didn't have to go out. Being on a corner there was... More

Great motel. Lovely staff, clean room, Great location, close to Traralgon centre, although slightly more traffic noise than I'm used to. Nice complementary brekky. Best value for money motel I've stayed in for over a year!

A group of 7 (in 3 rooms) stayed recently and there were no complaints. We were very busy in town so not a lot of time was spent in the rooms. In 2014, most of us were able to use their house in the street behind the motel which had 3 bedrooms, kitchen and lounge etc. Perfect for us but... More

Dear Offshore 956 from Sydney, Thank you for your feedback, it is important to us. We are a little perplexed as to your comments regarding a "slippery metal staircase open to the elements with no cover"?? Connells Motel does NOT have a metal staircase anywhere on the premises? The Motel was built approx 40 years ago with concrete stairs that... More

This motel is very well operated by a delightful gentleman who is polite, helpful and always welcoming with a smile. A rare occurrence indeed. The only downside is the traffic noise which can hardly be avoided if you are situated on the Princes Highway. Did not keep me awake though.

This motel was clean and tidy. It was a small motel with not many room and the room was a bit small but not bad. All motels in Traralgon are on the highway but the noise was a little annoying. They have done some work and up-dated a few elements, eg. new vanity but they haven't up-dated the entire bathroom.... More

What a fabulous place to stay. Every contact we had was without issue and smooth sailing. The parking was a little difficult but then, the available space has been utilised wisely. The room had absolutely everything we needed and was so very comfortable and warm. The owners were very accommodating with our requests. We were fortunate to receive a complimentary... More
