“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We stayed here on our trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. By far the best accommodation we have had in Australia. Extremely clean and tidy. Great sized room. Reasonable mini bar. A free upgrade to a queen sized room. The lady at reception very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Good clean motel, very helpful owner (I assume he is the owner, maybe desk staff), we came after formal check-in time and forgot to call in advance, our room was available, no problems. Internet price is reasonable and it works well. We were allowed to leave the car and walk over the town after check-out.

I was terrified in the middle of the night by the sound of somebody having douche in our bathroom - it appeared that the water is collected in the douche and just split out eventually at one moment )) Seriously, the douche is not very good - hard to get needed temperature.

This cute little motor inn was a great jump point for the Great Ocean road. The owners were very friendly and went the extra mile to bring us breakfast half an hr early than their usual time so we could get away. The huge bathroom was a nice surprise and have to say the super soft towels were lovely - unlike most hotel's where the towels are bleached within an inch of their lives and coarse. Would def recommend to anyone who wants to travel along the great ocean road.

woudnt rave about this place, but its a good solid value for money hotel. service wasn't anything exceptional. but for the money, the rooms were large and most importantly clean. easy to find. could walk into town. 1 night was enoughh for our needs and we woke up refreshed for the next day of travel.

Room Tip: we liked being on the 2nd floor but it wouldnt be ideal if you have problems lugging your luggage up...

As other reviewers have noted, the Atwood Motor Inn is not the Ritz, however if you are after an easy, clean and convenient overnight stay, you could do worse than this motel. Friendly hosts Brendan and Helen are very obliging. Rooms have small kitchenettes which make it easy to have an easily breakfast before hitting the road. Love the fact that guests are given fresh milk on check in!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are the easiest to access

feel quite happy to stay in this motel, clean and quiet. i requested a room which has the least number of neighbors above and next to us, and was fulfilled. thanks. recommendable to people who go and visit Warrnambool.
