We spent a couple of nights here while exploring the area. Andy, one of the owners, was very helpful with many suggestions on things to see. He feeds Cockatoos on the fence and there's always a bunch birds stopping in to eat. Great fun! Nicely maintained rooms, clean and everything you could want in a motel. Great location, you can...

An updated, clean and hospitable room for a reasonable price. Good value for your Australian Dollar. Andy, manager/owner, extremely friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. We enjoyed the nearby beach and pool area. Its older construction vintage & overly large window facing the parking lot means the rooms do transfer a significant amount of noise. All things considered; we would rebook there... More

We spent 2 nights at the Motel Marengo while driving along the Great Ocean Road. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything you could possibly need for a short stay. There is a lovely beach just 5 minutes walk down the road, Apollo Bay with it's shops and restaurants is a short drive away and James and Andy... More

Motel Marengo was a great place for a little family holiday on the Great Ocean Road. The pool and spa were such a nice feature for this small capacity motel, we used them almost every day. The local wildlife (parrots, cockatoos, rosellas) were gorgeous and friendly. And the manager James was always on hand to answer questions and help out.... More

Comfortable, clean and close to everything. Loved feeding the wild parrots, shopping, nearby restaurants, pool, spa and the beach. Nothing was too much trouble with friendly, cheery service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The motel owner was very friendly and helpful, providing us with useful advice on where to go and what to do.The room was quite spacious and could easily accommodate a family. If the weather had been warmer we would have enjoyed the surrounding gardens more and... More

Good place to stay on the Ocean Road just outside Apollo Bay. The motel represents good value for money, good size room with fridge, toaster, kettle and crockery and cutlery. Pleasant owner/manager who provided information on places to visit. Parking bay outside each room, there is a swimming pool and friendly exotic birds.

The owners are friendly, room is clean and cozy. The area has many wild parrots and the owner provided us seeds for the parrots in the morning. Good for family with kids. The motel is also near to the beach.

We were very pleasantly surprised by our great stay in this super friendly motel. The helpful owners obviously take great care to provide for the needs of their guests - so many little extra details and items provided in the well equipped rooms to make your stay comfortable and all very clean. We enjoyed feeding the parrots too! We would... More
