“Comfy Room. Reasonable Price. Good Value for Money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stayed for only a night returning from a day trip down to the Great Ocean Road.

Exceeds expectations for a motel room. The room was spacey and comfy. The decor is a bit dated but good value for money.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

It's really close to the waterfront bars and restaurants, the shops, the botanic gardens, and Geelong Hospital, so it's ideally located for whatever you want or need to do in Geelong! We walked through the centre of town to the Geelong Gallery in 15 minutes, so there really is no need to move the car.
Our favourite organic cafe for breakfast, the Sprout and the Bean, is just along the road as you head back into town. There is a restaurant on site, but it doesn't look inviting - and there are restaurants of just about every kind further down Malop Street (the A Rani Thai at 136 Malop Street is good value, and the Kohinoor Indian at 137 opposite has a very extensive menu).
My only complaint about the motel is the old light fitting on the wall above the bed which makes sitting up in bed uncomfortable. Next refit, please take it away!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are noisy when the early risers rev up their vehicles!

Needed last minute long weekend accommodation and this was one of the few left on Wotif. Booked mainly for the wifi which didn't work in our room. The room and furnishings were dated (think mid nineties)but did the job. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Great centre hotel, room clean, very basic, but location made up for it all. Walking distance of everything. Not plush or posh, average UK travelodge standard, ie clean, comfy bed, dated, but all you need to JUST put your head down.

Stayed for 1 night on our way back to Melbourne from GOR. Booked this motel via booking.com. The room looks old but is clean. it has the basic items i.e. microwave, kettle, utensils. The staff was kind enough to give us the room downstairs (which is easy access to our car) when we suppose to have a room upstairs. Is a walking distance to Eastern Beach and Westfield.

We booked this motel through booking.com as our last stop 09/04/2013, before Melbourne, having traveled from Adelaide via the great ocean road. We were looking for a central location stay where we could venture out foot but also reasonably priced.
This turned out to be the perfect venue, the room was large with all amenities including a microwave & fridge and was also very clean,

Cannot complain it was a good price and perfect for us, if we ever returned to Geelong this would be the fisrt place for us to consider for a stay

Room Tip: You can always ask to see the room

I booked this Motel through Booking.com before reading Trip Advisor, If I had done it the other way round I wouldn't have booked and we would have missed out on an excellent stay. The room was spotless the bed very comfortable, the room had all that was needed including a microwave. The bathroom was very big and had a double shower that was fantastic you could move around and not hit the walls. To top things off there is now a restaurant attached and it is fantastic. All in all it was a great stay and next time we go back to Geelong that is where we will stay

Room Tip: We had room 5 on the Ground floor
