“Nice spot for the night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We were not here long enough for much of a review, but for overnight, we had no complaints. It was in a nice area called Belmont. A shopping center across the road and LOTS of restaurants with in an easy walk. We arrived late so had to hussle to find one before they closed.

There was an elevator which was a bonus for us and undercover parking. Our phone did not work but one was brought up very quickly. there was no place to plug in my laptop and accessories, so a power strip was promptly brought as well.

If you don't expect too much, this place is fine for a short stay. Free wi if is a bonus. Foxtel no longer connected though. Rooms are comfortable. May be a little pricey for what you ultimately get.

Arrived late, unfortunately for us, it was too late to find accommodation elsewhere, so we stayed, although afterwards wished that we hadn't. After checking in, then proceeding up to the first floor in the lift, we were greeted with scratching's in the inside of the lift, like what you would expect in shanty town. The room looked kind of warm, we left to find some food, only to arrive back to see smoke coming out of the undersides of the doors (even though a smoke free hotel) needless to say the smoke crept into our room during the night, which never makes for a great sleep. Not that we had much of that considering how uncomfortable the beds were. Didnt bother to check out bfast and in fact was awake from 4. Did manage to find a 5 star for the same price on the waterfront, wished we had of shopped around more. Beware!!

Room Tip: find another hotel!!!

We booked early for for a family room to cater for 6 adults. We arrived receiving bedding for 5. After complaining, initial response was, "we thought 2 could sleep in a single bed". Finally, a sofa-bed was made up to accommodate the 6th adult. It was so uncomfortable, the floor was used in preference to the "sofa-bed". No hand washing basin is provided in the shower/toilet area. The kitchen "sink" is the only hand wash facility provided. Room divider advertised doesn't exist!! Undercover car park facilities are not suitable for anything above small car sizes. Exposed parking is OK. The morning complaint to desk staff was met with contempt. An apology would have been nice ... but really ... never expected one. Probably would have been better off sleeping in the Park adjacent to the Motel.

We have used a few Comfort Inns and this was similar to the others. Parking is underneath so have to take luggage a fair way.
The restaurant was not operating, but they did recommend some restaurants down the main street - there are several to chose from.
There were a couple of stains on the carpet which met us as we came in the door.
We had a king size spa room which was nice. Would have been better if they had balconies off the rooms.

Counter staff not very helpful. After being to other places & given an indication of where the room actually was this place was very lacking in customer service. Trying to find the hotel was hard as well as we arrived after 5pm, it was dark & the property sign wasn't lit. Even later it wasn't on. Partial room divider was for the kitchen area. The sink to wash the dishes, was the hand basin where you washed your hands. I dont find that very sanitary.

Geelong is a football fanatic’s dream location, and the hotel is right in the heart of it. Owner Mark and staff Jessica and Christine were on hand and helpful with all of the organizing. The restaurant is quaint and good quality room service. We had free parking and walked to the footy, the hotel is central to shops and restaurants and close to beaches. There is a laundry for guests to use as well. Rooms are large and spacious with modern decoration in an older hotel, families would fit in well. We suggest the “Spa’ room!
