Older looking motel, clean rooms, fridge, microwave, toaster, small pool, BBQ and grassed areas for the kids. Good value continental breakfast at $6.50 Quit location on the out skirts of the city, around 2k to shops. Good value for weekend or over night.

Have stayed here a couple of times as a stopover on our way to Melbourne. Rose City looks a little old fashioned at first glance, but on a closer look you will find it has been freshly painted and maintained with love. We were in a queen room, which had a renovated bathroom and is sufficiently equipped with kitchenette, ironing...

Hi Dionne. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is always very uplifting to see a positive review and are glad you enjoyed your stay. Rose City Motor Inn was the first motel in Benalla and has recently had a full renovation to the whole property but still keeping the charm and character of the 1960's....

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mum and my sister. We found the Rose City motor inn to be very clean and well cared for. The rooms were fantastic and very clean. We went out for a few hours and when we got back the room was all made up again. I would recommend this beautiful place to...

Best value for a long time! Booked a room at the last minute, on my travels north from Melbourne, and called ahead to give my ETA. Friendly, thoughtful staff, who even switched the light on for me, as I was arriving after dark. I had a good night's sleep before I was on my way again early in the morning....

We stayed two nights in a renovated Premium room at the back of the motel. The exterior of the motel appears dated, however our room had been renovated with modern, tasteful decor and furnishings.

I have driven past this motel for a number of years and thought it to be yet another aged 1960's style motel. Having just stayed there I can say looks can be deceiving. I stayed in a premium room at the back of the property and was pleasantly surprised. It had been refurbished with some flair and was quite pleasant....

Conveniently located adjacent to roundabout when coming off Hume Hwy going north. I was surprised that there wasn't much traffic noise being so close to main road. Our room was very clean and spacious, very well presented. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall good value for money

My wife and I have stayed here before and always find this to be a good, clean budget motel with updated queen rooms.

I'm unsure how this motel has the high overall rating it's received. Not that it's terrible: it had a nice firm bed and decent pillows and linen. It was roomy, clean and there wasn't a lot of road noise. But the bathroom was pokey & outdated and the air con was noisy. Despite the exterior, it's a solid 3 star...
