I spent only one night at this nice little motel but intend on coming back whenever I´m in the region. It´s one of the cheapest options in overpriced Phillip Island, but the rooms are VERY good, with great beds, showers and air conditioning, and its locations ensures a quiet night´s sleep. Owners are very kind and the breakfast is pretty... More

We found the place to be very friendly, quiet and clean albeit 1970s style. It is within 5 minutes walk to the beach and shops and central for the islands main attractions. Our only complaint was that a previous guest had set the radio alarm to go off at 1am; a rude awakening on our first night...lol.

We were more than happy with the value and room at the Tropicana for 2 night stay on Phillip Island. Free wi-fi and continental breakfast was a good bonus. Room is very comfortable and adequate. Dining room is very dated and I couldn't help but re-decorate and update the design in my mind while having breakfast. Although it didn't have... More

Found the motel to be very comfortable, nice spa in room. Owners very friendly and helpful, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants and beaches. Had breakfast in the dining room next morning..The only thing was the motel was a bit dated.

Lovely motel with spacious queen room. Motel is close to shops, restaurants and beach, and in a quiet area. Unfortunately no heating so it was fortunate we took our own. Our room had one queen bed and two single bed so ideal for family. We Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed for two nights and enjoyed the stay overall. Would stay again. Positives: - Great location - Spotless - Spacious - Has a microwave Negatives: - Bed covers really need to be changed. Why not have white, the current colour of the covers make them look and feel dirty - Furniture needs an update - Very basic ie. no shower... More
