“Old shabby rooms - no service”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Wished I read the reviews first. If you are looking for a cheap night - that's fine......but I'm not sure the owner can speak as I was greeted with a "look" and a grunt & "1 car parking space". The photos of the rooms are NOT what ours looked like at all. Very very basic rooms. Clean bathroom though. Pool was great as it was warm & we had 2 little ones. A miles or more away from the shops too. Other than that not much to speak off. Will not visit again.

Room Tip: Definitely budget style here

We recently stayed at this hotel and did not find it very enjoyable. When I arrived at the reception I was greeted with not much more than a grunt and that was about as good as it got. The majority of our fly screens were broken or had holes so we could not let any air in and the room was thus very stuffy. The bathroom window flyscreen was also broken and was a ventilation type setup so basically we showered with many bugs and we permanently had flies in our room and no way of stopping this from happening. We would not recommend and would not go back.

An older motel that is clean and well priced. So why get GRUMPY?
All my daughter wanted to do was to check in around 12 o'clock, so that she could get changed to go to a wedding.
No way... The rooms arn't cleaned till 2 pm. You will have to book the room the day before!!
What would prompt such greedy, poor behaviour. Well there was a jazz festival in town that weekend so they knew there was very few alternatives.

I stayed at Echuca Motel for 3 nights in January. We had 2 adults and 1 child. Couldnt have asked for a nicer place. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded into a family for the same price... Will be back to stay again..
Thanks Russell

We stayed at The Echuca Motel in November 2011 when we were staying in Victoria and having a few days away with my sister. We had a 2 bedroomed unit as there were three of us and it cost us 145 dollars a night for the 3 of us which I thought was very good value. There was everything you needed-2 bedrooms a living/dining area (though we ate out and so only used the fridge). There was a microwave and tea/coffee making facilities and a TV with very good reception. As other reviewers have said the bathrooms looked like they had recently been upgraded with modern fittings. The shower was really good and powerful.
Bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The pool and garden area were tidy and very well maintained.
It was about 25- 30 minutes walk into Echuca and there is a lovely walk along the river though when we came back at night we did get a taxi.
All in all I would recommend this Motel.

I recently organised a Buck's weekend in Echuca and we stayed at the Echuca Motel. We found the owners to be extremely friendly and helpful, greeting us with a "Hello' each morning and chatting to us many times over the course of the weekend.

As there were 10 of us staying we booked the three largest rooms and found them to be exactly what we needed. The rooms were clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. While the facilities were basic they contained what we required; a fridge to store our beer and a TV to watch the cricket. The bathrooms in all the rooms were very modern and I assume they have been updated recently. The swimming pool and BBQ area is an added bonus and provides a terrific area to hang out, chat and have a few beers during the afternoon.

While the location of the motel is not in the centre of town it is within walking distance, taking approximately 15-30 minutes depending on how many beers had been consumed.

All in all Echuca Motel was a great place to stay and is terrific value for money.

We have friends who have moved to echuca so we though we'd go to visit them and stay in Echuca for a couple of days.I booked and paid for a twin room when i got there Russell who was very rude and arragont down graded us to a single room and did not discount our fee. We still paid for a twin room. There was lots of noise at 1.30am. Russell's response was "we don't live in a perfect world" I dreeded my stay there and will never stay there again or recommend it to anyone.When your room gets serviced they don't top up ur coffee and sugar so you go to the office and they charge you for anything extra you ask for.It was my worst experience ever. Never again........
