“Lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We spent one night at this motel but wished we could have stayed longer. We were very impressed with our room. It was modern and very clean. It had everything you could ask for even down to a microwave. We found the bed comfortable and the bathroom very spacious and modern. We were abit worried about being on a main road but to our relief there was little noise and had a great sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would be very happy to stay here again.

My adult son and I stayed here for four nights. The decor is modern and new, the bathroom was spotless and recently refurbished. There was a handy microwave, cutlery, toaster plus the usual tea and coffee. The nearby pub didn't make any noise that we could hear. The location is very close to the centre of town, certainly walking distance from shops and restaurants. The managers are extremely friendly and helpful, and made me feel very welcome. I will certainly stay here again.

Very reasonably priced for such a great little hotel. Great location, although very close to a pub which might bother some (wasn't a problem for us). Really lovely room and comfy bed. Bathroom looked quite new and was very clean. Better than most hotels ive stayed in. Great stay :)

My son and I spent one night here on our way to Melbourne. We had an upstairs room with a balcony and there was no noise (surprisingly) to interrupt our sleep. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were lovely and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would recommend the Motor Inn as a place to stay. It is close to the city centre and there were plenty of restaurants to dine in.

My husband and I spent one night here as a stop in our travels.
We had an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking the street.
Motel was really clean. The room was a good size and the bed was really comfy.
So nice to have opening windows and a little balcony. We slept with the sliding door open and the noise was fine.

My family and I stayed in a family room for three nights and found it to be spacious, clean and tidy. With access to many family restaurants and shopping centres all within walking distance it is well positioned when you have young children. The staff were very approachable, friendly and helpful. More information (brochures/flyers) on local activities and attractions (especially for children) would have been really handy however would be very happy to stay there again and recommend the Motor Inn to family and friends.

I will pass on your feedback to our staff and again hope to see you when you next visit Ballarat

I stayed in this Inn for two nights in conjunction with my planned visit to the 2014 Ballarat Beer Festival. It is only 10 minutes walk from the train station and 5 minutes into the City Centre although multiple shopping and eating establishments are almost outside. I stayed in a twin room which was large and well equipted with a mini bar, plasma TV iron and ironing board.
My room faced the road but there was no noise, there is no restaurant but I noticed they did do a breakfast service, but I did not partake.
There is a typical friendly Aussie Pub, "The Battlers", a block away, again no noise and I stayed on a Friday and Saturday night.
In summary a friendly well run Inn and good value, recommended.

Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased your stay in Ballarat was an enjoyable one. Our proximity to Ballarat CBD and most attractions is one of our advantages as is our location in regard to many restaurants. Perhaps next time you might have the time to enjoy one of our cooked breakfasts
