We are very impressed with the room in this motel, friendly and helpful staff, clean and tidy room, comfy bed, clean towels, hairdryers, microwave and fridge, just what you need and they have it all . We are happy that we picked to stay with Rippleside as the start of our great ocean road journey.

Rippleside Park Motor Inn is inappropriatly named, the park may be nearby but not easily accessible.
The motel is modern and the rooms comfortable but the location is awful.
Its on Melbourne road which carries a very high volume of traffic 20 hours a day,so,if its a good nights sleep you want then dont stay here.
Double glazing might well be the answer to the noise problem .
Until then traffic noise problem is solved I wouldnt recommend Rippleside.

I have stayed here with friends for 2 nights - our rooms were very clean and Paul and his wife were helpful. It is close to the main street but not too noisy at night, walking distance to Esplanade and Train station. Can definitely recommend to everyone.

Stayed one night to attend a wedding nearby. You get what you pay for and i think we paid about $100 for the night. The bed was comfy and didn't have any bed bugs (that i know off). Happy with our stay.

We stayed in the family room at the Rippleside motor inn while attending a friend's wedding. My friend and I both woke up to find that we had been bitten numerous times by bed bugs. The bites are itchy and sore and we have both had to spend time and money visiting the doctor and buying various creams/lotions to help with the bites. Hopefully the bed bugs didn't get into our luggage and come back to Melbourne with us!

Even if this hotel was free, it wouldn't be worth staying there for the inconvenience and discomfort caused.

Room Tip: Do not stay here unless you want to be bitten by bed bugs!

I stayed in a family room with a double bed and 2 singles with my partner and a couple of friends. The room had the basics for an overnight stay. It was close to local shops and the service was good too. The only bad thing was that the next morning I woke up with a few itchy bites. By the time I got back to sydney my back shoulder was covered in huge red itchy lumps. I went to the doctor and he said they were bed bug bites and that I had reacted really badly to them!! It's been almost a week and I can't show my back as it looks gross!!
I wouldn't go back solely because of the bed bugs which is a shame because it was pleasant while we were there.
