A driver reviver stop to wash off the fatigue from driving this motel came in handy. The ground floor room was neat and clean. A bit noisy being next to the restaurant / conference room but I slept right through it without an issue. The bed was comfortable and the en suite clean and spacious.

Check in was fairly lax, and the walls are very thin noise from other rooms was an issue, we heard guests partying through the night with no control from management. Rooms were fairly clean. The rooms are a good size. Wifi was very slow

Easy to get to from Melbourne. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it. Good size breakfast delivered to the rooms and reasonably priced. Restaurant is not open weekends which is a shame but plenty of places to eat in Traralgon. The only downside was the hotel is basically on Princes Highway and a few inconsiderate trucks drivers would insist on using... More

First impressions were OK - nice size room at far end upstairs. However, once in, it became apparant that maintenance is not up to standard. The room was clean, but the bed was a poor quality mattress on a slat base - quite uncomfortable. The net/lace curtain was torn across the bottom with a chunck missing out of it completely.... More

Stayed here for two nights on busness found the motel to be comfortable with clean rooms, Breakfast is available but the restaurant is closed. Close to town so not to far to find something to eat, ground floor room had a spa bath (didn't use) Didn't hear the traffic outside so had a good sleep

The room is clean and quite spacious. Has nice touches like providing chocolates/biscuits and free movies channels - 3 channels in addition to free TV. Did not notice any of the highway noise that some previous authors had mentioned - ask for a room further in from the road. Also, ask for a room on the top floor (I had... More

While I agree with the other reviews about the truck noise - I'd say that applies to all motels in the area as they're all on the highway. It's not really a tourist town and customers tend to be staying for work reasons like myself. The rooms are a little cramped but again for a one night business road trip... More
