Best choice, after a long drive it was really nice to get to this motel. The lady in the reception is really nice, she helped me to order some food, did not charged the local phone call and the breakfast she got me the next day to my room was nice. The place is super clean and altough you may... More

We booked several months in advance although had some concern about the location as there was no reference in the Lonely Planet for the town. We needn't have been concerned as the motel and town proved to be a good choice; we wished to visit Walhalla. We were allocated room 2 which was closer to the highway but traffic noise... More

On February 9th 2014 my mother and I were stranded by the fires in Morwell.I made a strategic decision to move on to Traralgon where we passed two large chain motels which had pinned a 'closed' sign on their doors. We came along the Connell's Motel, a family run, small motel which apart from having meticulously clean rooms, was open... More

Connells is a lovely motel-clean with a comfortable bed, modern furnishings and friendly, helpful staff. We had a ground floor room at the end furtherest from the highway so were not bothered by traffic noise at all during our 5 night stay. I took stars off for location-it's a fair old walk to the town centre and back if you're... More

This is a nice motel which lies on the main road past Traralgon. We found the lady at reception to be really chatty and helpful. She was also kind enough to try and guide us in as our navigation device wasn’t up to the challenge of finding the address unfortunately. We got the family room, which I guess is different... More

We stayed at this motel on the way to the high country for a weekend's hiking. The owners were both very friendly and accommodating, organising a breakfast pack so we could make an early start, suggesting somewhere for dinner etc. the rooms are clean, fresh and nicely appointed and we paid (just) under $100, breakfast included

Found this to be good value for money. Clean linen and towels, new interiors nicely done, easy access from road, friendly staff. The rooms were actually as good as they are in the pictures. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed here as I had a work function in Traralgon on Friday night. The staff were ultra friendly, and the premises well maintained. On entry to the room, it was instantly obvious how clean it was. The room was well appointed and had a breakfast pack which saved me a lot of time. Highly recommended, and great value. Well... More
