This was a nice motel on the Great Ocean Road a short distance from Apollo Bay. The 2 roomed unit contained a Queen/King sized bed and the 2nd bedroom, had 2 single bed - all made up with electric blankets. There was also a microwave, toaster & jug in a small kitchenette. I would recommend this motel to friends.

The Motel Marengo is very clean and comfortable and is well placed for exploring the Great Otway park. The staff are really pleasant and helpful, and drove us a distance along the Great OceanRoad , so that we could walk back to Apollo Bay. It was a brilliant walk along deserted beaches. The Great Otway park has a lot to...

Staff's service was very detailed and welcoming. We stayed at the double/twin suite room and it was in fantastic condition. The room was neat, cosy, spacious and with lovely details. The location is easy to find, just off Great Ocean rd, this made our travels to the surrounding areas very convenient.

Really enjoyed two nights here - clean, friendly folk without being invasive; bed really comfortable for a person with a sore back; birds lovely; beach close for a stroll. Not a 'modern' motel but very nicely redecorated. Enjoyed the hot spa pool. Highly recommended value for $.

Neat and clean, especially I am almost an OCD freak. Room big enough for a family of 4 adults, with really helpful hosts. My dad wakes up super early and likes to take walks in the morning, and one of the hosts was entertaining him with the parrots that reside there and sharing the produce from their little garden.
