This is a very nice motel just at the entrance of Apollo bay (or exit depending on your direction). The owners are very friendly and my kid had a great time feeding the friendly King Parrots which are very colourful. The room is nice and overall, we would be back if back in the area.

Weren't in Apollo Bay for long so we just wanted cheap and clean and neat. We got all that plus some friendly and helpful advice from the chap at reception. And Koalas. Everywhere! And seals down the road on the island. (Need binoculars). And birds. Lots of them.

We were given details for this by the Information Centre and were apprehensive hearing not such good things about motels in the past. James and Andy were immediately welcoming. We were impressed with the rooms, cleanliness, comfortable beds. We stayed with our daughter and had a two room apartment. It was the best value accommodation of our three week visit... More

We were really happy with our stay here. It was great value for money compared with the other motels were looking at. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the wifi worked really well. The beds were super comfy. The motel is quite on the old side (so if you prefer your more modern type buildings then perhaps this isnt the... More

We had a fantastic stay and exceptional friendly service from James. The room was warm when we arrived as it was a bitterly cold and rainy day. James also switched on the hot spa (38 degrees Celsius) every day and we sat in it after a day on the road ,which was so relaxing. We had a two bedroom unit... More

A pleasantly, spacious room with a double bed, TV with Foxtel, fridge, kettle, microwave, table and cushion-covered benches to eat at, and glasses, crockery and cutlery for four. There was an adjoining room with two single beds and small bathroom with shower and toilet. The room was heated by a dimplex heater, not your usual reverse cycle heater. We were... More

Motel Marengo works for travellers who do not have high expectations on accommodation. The room has the basic stuff and is clean and spacious. However we were freezing in the room despite turning on the heater. While the bathroom is clean, it looks old and cold air could enter from the bathroom windows, making it a pain to shower in...

this was a great sized room, clean, and an added bonus having Foxtel too. Had a great nights sleep. Bathroom was a little small but was fine for a short stay, and the price we paid. We Had a takeaway mean from Dragon Bay Inn Chinese though and this was the only negative from our evening. One of our two... More

Went with advice from TA travellers' and decided to stay at Motel Marengo on the way down the GOR. What a pleasure! Had arrived in Melbourne from overseas and after getting a car at the airport, headed off to Apollo Bay and the Motel Marengo. Great location just outside Apollo Bay, quiet and good value. Room was large, bright and... More
