Ararat has at least 3 motels spread across the town. This one at the east end on the quite main road (rather than the noisier bypass). Recently bought by new friendly owners the rooms are super sparkly clean, moderately sized and with clean bedding and firm mattresses and pillows for a pleasant stay. many of the carparks offer carpark cover....

I decided to look around rather than book in ahead for a one night stay in Ararat. Coming from Geelong Ararat Motor Inn was the first we spotted and I thought it was a possibility. After looking at the competition we back-tracked as it was a quiet night we were after, and by appearance the cleanest looking and most well... More

I'm not sure why the Ararat motor inn is classified as a Bed and Breakfast as it is definitely a motel. We certainly didn't get breakfast here. It was comfortable, clean, and fairly recently renovated with modern attractive decor. It is located in the main street off the Western Hwy but not in the centre of town. It is a... More

Four of us went to Ararat to do the J Ward Lunatic Asylum tour on Sat 15/11/14 and stayed overnight. After reading all the tripadvisor reviews I chose to book the Ararat Motor Inn and was so glad I did. When I rang to book 2 rooms I found there was a wedding that night and all the rooms were...

Normally book everything online however this was unavailable when we booked this motel so I booked the motel by phone and asked for a king executive unit. I confirmed this over two weeks ago and was assured everything was fine. I phoned yesterday and was grateful when told our room would be ready on arrival. On arrival the lady at... More

Lovely rooms. Clean, warm , comfortable bed & quiet. Good work space with accessible power points! No restaurant but have charge back at locals. Microwave, sink & crockery in larger rooms. Will definitely stay here next time I'm in town.

Host were extremely friendly and helpful, block out blinds were great for a good nights sleep, the room was spotless and very quiet. I highly recommend this motel, the undercover parking would be a real bonus in the summer, and the towels so thick and soft, the bed was very comfy, couldn't fault it.

Nice, light room, clean, 2 km from heart of town. Large bathroom lots of towels. Really friendly owners. Undercover parking. Quiet which surprised me as motel is right on a fairly busy road. Ian was really informative about local attractions which was really handy. Highly recommended place to stay

Stayed here for 1 night. The room was extremely small but I couldn't fault the cleanliness of it. My only real complaint is the price they charge. I paid over $160 for this little room in a country town. Didn't pay much more for an apartment in the Docklands when I got to Melbourne.
