Each time we travel to Geelong we stay at Budget on the Lake. We have never been disappointed. It is close to the town and alongside the Lake, which is worth spending the time to walk around. Staff very helpful,room cosy and comfortable, breakfast good value.

Decided to stay at this Motor Inn for the Ansett anniversary. Writing this review only because of viewing the last couple of negative reviews this Motor Inn received. Would like to support them by saying we got a really good deal for an overnight stay. Very clean. OK, so it is not up there with the updated furnishings, but everything... More

We were given the contact details of this motel by the local tourist info people. We were travelling with our pet border collie pup, so needed 'pet-friendly' accommodation. The room was reasonably spacious and of the standard you would normally expect of budget accommodation - quite good. Location is just a short walk from the local lake (about 3 mins)... More

Lovely little motel about a 5 minute walk from town and right by the lake. Front desk was friendly and helpful. The rooms were much more modern than I had expected. Very clean and exceeded expectations.

Reception ok, room itself was clean & tidy but below par for the price. Location convenient to our needs. Central to Hamilton and easy access to everything. Room cabinetry in need of an upgrade. Parking in front of our room was a tight fit for our 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Great little Motel on Lake Hamilton stayed one night for a Rowing Regatta on the lake. Well positioned, easy walk to lake, about 800m to town centre. Clean and comfortable. Free and Fast WiFi. Would definitely stay here on a return visit

Situated off the main road so it was easy to get a peaceful night's sleep. The room was comfortable, clean and the a/c worked well which was great news on such a cold night.

This budget room was comfortable with plenty of space, pleasant owner, room in good condition and clean. Offered breakfast & evening meal in your room and, also, offered a packed lunch. Handy to the main street. Ground floor accommodation with parking at your door.

We booked to stay here as we were attending a dog show. They were happy to have the dogs stay but not in the rooms which was fine. We had the family room. This was the usual motel room plus another bedroom with 2 beds. This gave 3 adults plenty of room. There was even a dining table with 4... More

Don't expect 5 star facilities in a 3 star establishment but the service is totally 5 star here. Friendly, efficient and very cooperative staff for whom nothing is too much trouble, quality rooms that are clean, tidy and value for money-very comfortable. Will we come here again for an overnight stay whilst travelling - you bet!
