“An adequate friendly motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2009

Late in the afternnon we searched for a motel in Cowes. This was the fifth visited and the first one where they knew what 'wifi' and internet meant! We had a large room for $99 Aus. which included continental breakfast if you stayed 2 nights. This was brought to the room the night before (bread to toast, cereal) The bathroom had a jacuzzi but this cost extra to use. There was a small swimming pool but it was too cold to use and a free laundry. The motel was 10 minutes walk from the centre of Cowes, in a quiet area

  • Liked — A good large room and the free laundry
  • Disliked — The rather silly minimal breakfast
  • Stayed February 2009, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2008

Stayed at the Tropicana Motor Inn Sunday 16th November 2008. We were only there one night primarily to see the penguin parade.
We booked a standard room through the Wotif website and were were very happy with the room we received. It was a large room with a queen bed, and a single bed, had a microwave, tea/coffee making facilities, small bathroom with a shower. The vanity was in a corner of the main room, next door to the shower. It could do with a bit of modernising but for $ 89A including a continental breakfast we were very happy. It was only a five minute walk to the beach, and about 7 minutes to the shopping centre. It took about 10 minutes to drive to the penguins. We also visited the Nobbies and the Koala Conservation Center.
