“Needs updating”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

Rooms are in need of updating. Carpet worn and old. Bathroom although clean was old with rust around taps. Some staff were friendly. Was not able to sleep in as the plumbing noises from next door was atrocious. You get what you paid for. The best thing in the room was the chairs which were very comfortable. I think I would prefer to pay $30 more for a better standard of room. Parking was very tight and not close to your room.Grounds were pleasant.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

I stopped in for the night on a recent road trip on the Hume Highway. While the hotel is clearly quite old, it is well maintained. The room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom is small.

Hosts are very friendly and welcoming.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Wangaratta. The room we had was good size, bathroom was small. Tight car park. Good location, staff very friendly. Good if you are on a budget, no frills style motel. The Indian restaurant next door was very convenient and has the best food!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2010

I stayed here on a quick business trip and the first thing I noticed was the meticulous attention to detail that the owners have achieved. The grounds are so well manicured. Staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for guests. Rooms do vary but the small room I was given was comfortable and quite cozy. This is a motel nestled among several other motels in the area and is outstanding for the hospitality, rates and cleanliness.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2010

Excellent stay at Ryley Motor Inn; last minute booking of a 'single' room for $79. Room was basic but clean and very comfortable; on the small side, but plenty big enough for 1 or 2 with a comfy double bed, small wardrobe, chair and bench with 2 stools. Pleasantly surprised by room facilities which included a litle bench area which offered bar fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery and crockery! Also TV and air con and free wireless internet use.
Bathroom surprisingly large and all absolutely spotless. Cheerful and welcoming hosts were very accommodating and allowed me to stay 2 hours past the checkout time to suit my requirements.
On the main road so not particularly quiet, but I slept fine in my room :-)

Wangaratta is a city of around 25000 people just of the Hume freeway about 3 hours from Melbourne.
The Paragon Ryley Motor Innl is a few hundred metres south of the centre of the city, on the road to Melbourne.
It is classified as 3 ½ star but I would say is as good as some 4 star country motels that I have used in Australia.
The room I had was conventional, fairly large, with a Queen Bed, a Sofa which converts to a double bed, TV (with Cable TV), Bar Fridge and Reverse Cycle Air-conditioning. There was also a coffee table, a reasonable size wardrobe and plenty of drawer space. Ample spare blankets and pillows were provided.
Tea and coffee making facilities and a toaster are also provided. A microwave is available on request.
The bathroom was a reasonable size with a shower, toilet and wash basin. Bath, hand and face towels were provided. Other amenities included small bars of soap, shampoo, shower cap, shoe cleaner and cotton buds.
The rooms had recently been renovated.
All rooms face a nice courtyard area with tables/chairs , a Bar B Q and a pool for guests.
Free wireless internet is available as are DVDs for use in the room.
There is no restaurant but there are charge back facilities from several restaurants in the town including and Indian next door and another restaurant straight over the road. There many other restaurants in the town. There is a supermarket 200 – 300 metres down the road.
I found the motel to be very comfortable and the owners to be very helpful.
I would recommend it for an overnight stay or for a few days if you are looking for somewhere to stop while visiting the area of on the way from Melbourne to Sydney or vice versa.
