“Lovely stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights in November. When we first walked into the room I was hit in the face with a beautiful smell! The room smelt so delightful, and it was very clean.
The staff were so friendly, always offering advice on where to go and what to see, and even suggested a nice pool by the beach for our daughter, we wouldn't have known it was there if not for the suggestion.
The bed was comfortable - and being a light sleeper, that's important for us.
There was a little noise from outside, but thankfully our neighbors were all very considerate in making noise after hours, so we all slept soundly.
Thank you for your services, all in all it was a lovely stay and we would happily stay here again.

Thankyou for taking the time to write a lovely review of your stay. We are very glad that you enjoyed a good night's sleep and that the other guests did not annoy you too much. It was a particularly busy weekend when you stayed. Also we are happy to let our guests know what our beautiful Geelong has to offer. Glad you took my advice and your daughter was able to enjoy a swim at the wonderful waterfront, especially when it was such beautiful weather. We certianly hope we will see you again.

Having come to Geelong, I ended up staying at the Econo Lodge Hacienda Motel Geelong while I looked for a place to live. Located in a quiet location, yet only 4km from the CBD area, I had everything I needed available to me within in an easy 5 - 10 minute walk. The Belmont Shopping Centre, Fast food outlets, cafes, restuarants, the local buses, even the South Geelong Train Station is only just down the road.

It took me longer than expected for me to find a place to live, so I can well attest to the quality and friendliness of the service that I received from my hosts Barry and Denise Foster. The motel has clean, modern rooms with free and easy parking.

I highly recommend this motel for your stay in Geelong, it's perfect location makes access to the area so easy. Plus if you want to have a drink, you don't have to be concerned with driving or a taxi, not only is there a pub just up the road, but there is a liquor barn a well.....Set for the night!

A great place to stay. I stayed in a large clean and comfortable room and warm and friendly hosts Barry and Denise were only eager to ensure everything I could ask for was provided with a smile. The motel is perfectly located close too shopping and CBD and and take away/restaurant options, but once sampling the menu provided by Barry and Emma Im sure you will agree the variety and value they offer is exceptional and the meals are delicious and generously sized also. I could not recommend this motel it's delightful hosts more.

Even tho our property is walking distance to restaurants, shops etc, it is just the fact that we can give good old fashion service. We hope to see you back again one day.

We were very well looked after, the motel was family orientated, the units were spotless and Denise and Barry were very welcoming hosts, as nothing was too much trouble. They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. The foyer had plenty of tourist information from which to choose. The units were very spacious and had everything we required, particularly in the bathroom area. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, unlike a lot of motels that you visit. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the units. The outdoor area was also very neat and tidy. The Fosters' knowledge of the area was most helpful. We found the location central to all shopping.

Excellent option for a peaceful stay. Lovely managers who go out of their way to make travellers feel at home - which is very important for those that travel often on business. Spotless rooms that are actually better than one might expect. All amenities are very close by with only a 2-3 minute drive into the Geelong CBD.

Would stay there without hesitation again.

A basic,clean motel run by a lovely couple. The room is removed from the road so there is no road noise at all. Restaurants are within a 3-4 minute walk. We had an interconnecting room with the kids which was really useful.

Stayed for three nights and found this motel to be very well located with shops and restaurants within walking distance. The decor is a little dated but for the price you are paying you can't expect the latest in decorating. Most importantly the place was spotless and well maintained. The owners are also very friendly. Excellent value for money.
