To start with, you get what you paid for and in general the room is clean if that's all you ask for. We arrived at 11am in the morning and understand that it was a bit early to check in but just thought there's no harm asking or leave our car and make a trip to the city. The owner...

Really dated. Old style two level motel apparently very popular with the hi-vis lads. Avalon Airshow was on and this was one of the few places available. The room was a sauna on entry but the aircon was OK at least. The bed was big but you don't often see a mattress replaced by a slab of granite. Bathroom tiny...

Very clean room with good firm beds...however...paper thin walls and I was told 3 times that I must register my credit card in case I smoked in the room!!!! I don't need to be reminded and no I don't smoke!!!! No parking spaces left so had to park on the street...why aren't rooms allocated a parking space???? Would only stay...

Not right in the CBD but walking distance to main shopping centres and waterfront precinct. Booked here as one of the last available over new years period. Rooms extremely small and in need of a refurb. Owner very nice, cannot fault her service. Will be back if we require a short term budget stay.

Arrived in the evening to find my room had been given to someone else. The manager/owner tried to tell me I'd cancelled but could provide no evidence to substantiate this. Have stayed here before and think there has been a change in owner. Will not be back again, you don't take a booking and not honour it.

A last minute find for our two day stay in Geelong. The owner was very friendly and the room was basic but had everything we needed. It could do with a renovation but for the price we paid over the new years period it was fine for what we needed.

Walls are thin so could hear the church next door very early Sunday morning as well as when neighbours are using their shower. Beds were clean and sheets looked new, but rest of room itself is clearly dated. Did the job, but probably could have spent a little extra somewhere else if I had known what the place was like....

Stayed here are couple of nights because I was working in Geelong. The place was tidy but in desperate need of renovating or detonating. The people running it were very friendly and I got the feeling that they were probably facing a up hill battle trying to keep the place functioning, like Basil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers.

Went and checked out this motor inn before I booked and I think all the reviews I read previously are outdated ... it's very tired and quite old and rundown and I chose not to stay there and payed extra and stayed at the Mecure which was $80 dearer but included breakfast and I was very happy I would not...

Was woken up by fellow people staying in motel. The paper think walls made it very difficult to block out the yelling and revelry. The balcony was the only way to access the upstairs rooms and the front door provided little sound proofing. I could hear the entire conversations of both rooms near me. If you want to have a...

“Front room on main street will attract early morning traffic and truck noise.”
  • Closer inspection would show power point hanging out from wall and tattered old desk.
  • Closer inspection would show basic maintenance needed. No hair dryer.
  • Quaint shower with interesting base and vinyl curtain.
  • New mattress ..... hard as a concrete floor.
