“Perhaps we caught the lady of the house on an off day!”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

But we certainly didn't experience the warm and friendly welcome described by the other reviewer. From the warm and friendly greeting on arrival ie continuing with a personal phone call for another 5 minutes while you wait, to the point blank refusal to allow a later than 10.00 am check out you really feel like they are doing you a huge favour to even tolerate paying guests. She also refused to allow us to use one of the bungalows at the rear of the property (to avoid the extensive traffic noise) on the basis that these were larger properties for families. This proved untrue as we ended up staying in one, on our return to Geelong a few days later. We really did not appreciate being blatantly lied to!

On the plus side the rooms are warm and comfortable, with good bathrooms, bed linen etc. It is also good value and convenient - there are not many reasonably price places to stay in Geelong, most of the 'hotels' don't actually offer accommodation. Just a little bit of kindness towards the weary traveller would go a long way...

Room Tip: At the back away from traffic on the busy road, if you are allowed!

I have stayed in this Motel 6 times or more over a number of years. The rooms are modest and great value for money. They are always extremely clean and the host/owners - Jenny & Peter are fantastic people and run it with pride and provide warm, welcome environment. Beds are comfortable and showers are hot with good water pressure. I would stay there again without a doubt.
