Where to start......no heating, dirty, smells like 3 day old food, shower broken, noisy fridge, COLD. Lets move on the manager.....rude and slow. They take your personal information (ID, credit card) and do not disclose how long they keep it on file. Sadly I was desperate for a room and did not have time to read the other reviews. I... More

We were absolutely disgusted at this place. After waiting over half an hour to check in while the owner cancelled an online booking we were shocked when we finally entered our room. It was very very old and extremely dirty. Shower was filthy and had mud on the floor. Two old pieces of soap left in shower. Furniture taped together... More

Worse place ever. Period. Heaps of exclamtionsmarks. Far to expensive... Like: 130$ for a room just two steps higher than a park bench. Best thing about it is to leave again. Noisy surroundings, noisy tennants, fridge with a second hand jet engine going all night and a distinct feeling of antique dirt

Do not stay here! You will be more comfortable under a tree or in the boot of a parked car. The Colonial Lodge is NOT a motel, it is a flea-pit. The owner is exceptionally rude. The rooms are fitted with ancient, broken furniture that has been repaired with electrical tape. The staff will invade your privacy. Nothing functions as... More

I dont care.. I charge, you not like..CANCEL".."You not happy, CANCEL..". This guy was absolutely rude... More

Stayed two nights for a workshop, was cheap and you get what you pay for. Room was tidy and quiet, beds were comfortable and linen clean. Lack of wi-fi in this day and age is a bit of a downer but otherwise, an ok stay.

This is exactly as it looks, cheap and nasty. It was dirty, smelly and just horrible. We were desperate for a room and this was one of last available in Geelong on a busy weekend and now know why it was not booked. We now wish we hadn't bothered. The owner upon checking in was rude and felt he needed... More

No matter how desperate you are. I stayed here when I was. The owner demanded I pay a key deposit of $10 which he never refunded. When I complained he insisted he had paid me at the same time as insisting he didn't have to refund it unless I came back to the hotel. Other guests spat and smoked outside... More

The owner/manager is loud, whining, snivelling, blinking, abusive and a bully.There was enough material here for a thirteenth episode of Fawlty Towers as the owner ranted and raved at 10.30 on a Saturday night after one of his guests broke off his key in a dodgy lock. Because I had secured the room with my credit card for my friend... More

It's a Very budge motel with tidy room. Old small motel but clean and the first time when look from outside, you don't feel want to trap in. Owners are Chinese old couple were from Beijing and they are very friendly. No internet Close to everything
