“don't book this hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

stay away from this hotel, we booked it without checking trip advisor and that is the biggest mistake we made!!!!!!

the owner/manager is beyond rude, unwelcoming and really shouldn't be in a business where he deals with clients.

the room was generally clean however the rooms are dark, small and dingy...packed with un-needed furniture giving very little room to move....bed was uncomfortable probably about 10 years old and very saggy

pool was dirty and furniture in this area was old and falling apart...

cleaner unlocked our door and walked into our room whilst we were in there without knocking...

we travel to Echuca every year and try a new place each time...this is the last time we will do that and stick to a motel that is $15 more expensive a night but def well worth it compared to this hotel....

be warned don't book!!!!!

Out of all the motels in Echuca I advice you stay well away from this one. The owner is rude and aggressive and does not listen to any feedback. The rooms are dark and dingy and the surrounding areas are filthy and unkept. People sit outside drinking and smoking and listening to loud music all night and the owners response when I complained " that's your problem." So I say it again stay away!!

After an initial greeting, sorry grunt, from possibly one of the rudest men to ever stand behind a desk we went to our room. Entering the Twilight Zone and heading back to the '70s we were presented with lace curtains and a dark, musty room. The double bed took up all of the space in the main bedroom. The kids were excited about the bunk beds, but they quickly realised these were impractical as if they breathed too heavily,they rocked uncontrollably. As there was no space in the rooms there was nowhere to actually sit and relax. We could have taken a chair out onto the walkway like the young revellers did, however it was difficult to stay out of the way of the teens skateboarding along the balconies. At the height of summer our kids refused to go in the pool for all the bugs and debris floating in it. This was a good thing as supervision was made difficult due to the tiny space around the pool, the long grass, the numerous broken chairs and the only usable chair being perched on by several teens drinking from glass bottles and disposing of them around the pool. The grunting manager didn't seem to mind any of this going on and did nothing to stop it. Thank goodness his wife was a little more understanding, but was powerless without his support. On providing feedback the male manager became quite aggressive and belligerent. Hence my feedback has arrived here.

We chose this motel as it looked good on the net and in walking distance to stroll around and explore Echuca.
Arriving our first impressions were ok, the outside wasn't too bad but checking in the male, possibly the owner, was very unwelcoming, no "hi how are you", he was quite rude.
We asked about what to do in Echuca and his response was "just get a brochure off the board that'll tell ya".
Entering our room we stepped back in time to the 70's and 80's, the room was nothing like shown on the website.
Our window wouldn't shut, breakfast door wouldn't lock, curtains didn't go right across the window, shower door wouldn't shut, moths and cobwebs, and a musty odour that was terrible. The bed was saggy so that didn't make for a restful night sleep at all.
The pool chairs all broken.
A bit of thorough cleaning, some cosmetic updates and a much more welcoming greeting from the owner / manager would make this motel more appealing.
At around $125 per night, or thereabouts, depending on the room type, it's rated 3 star but we would give it 1 star.
Very disappointed and wouldn't return or recommend to anyone there are far better places than this.

Room Tip: Avoid this motel, there are many other better choices

This is a nice comfort Inn .very clean rooms and central to all in Echuca. Nice 42" plasma tvs. Just remember to click on your remote when it flashes green after about 1 hr or it will go off.( time saving device). All walls are red brick giving it a warm feeling.Clubs provide free transport to their properties. Family run , nice couple. Reserved parking for all rooms.Showing its age on the exterior i.e outdoor furniture and roof. but the rooms were a credit and I thought had just been refurbished. but no, that is how they are.

Room Tip: request gound floor if stairs are a problem

I left this hotel with a good experience. The room was clean, size was fine, bed comfortable and the staff friendly, the good old fashioned way. It is one of the hotels within easy walking distance to the town centre (across a park opposite the hotel). The rooms are mainly ground floor, with about six on the first floor. Parking available outside your room, monitored by CCTV. Pool available for a refreshing dip, and a good size TV set with some Austar channels. When staying in Echuca again I would not have any problem returning to this hotel.

Room Tip: I always prefer the ground floor rooms as I don't have to carry bags up stairs.

We booked what we thought was a 2 bedroom apartment. It was actually two cramped rooms. Willing to accept the small room even though was very dark, dusty and smelt bad.

Went for a walk around town and returned to find a group of men smoking and drinking beer in front of our room. When we approached the room, jokes were made about one of the men 'farting' during the night and waking us up. We did not respond. This was met with 'oh, not impressed' and laughter.

Once we got in the room, still hearing the carry-on outside, my husband very kindly suggested that we find something else. The people did move, around to the reception area, and we assume that they were friends with the owner.

Now we are very comfortably ensconced at the Quest.

We did not get a refund, as we booked with Wotif.com. The owner did offer us two separate rooms to his credit but we had already decided to go somewhere else.

I am learning that it is better to book direct. This is not the first time we have been duped by false advertising on that site.
