“Showing its age”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Stayed here recently for three nights with a group of friends. The buildings are looking tired and our bathroom could have done with a makeover. On the other hand, the breakfast was great - lovely selection of continental breakfast options. Very comfortable bed and enjoyed a great night's sleep.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

50 year old motel shows its age. Has had a makeover in the rooms in the last few years but the exterior is tired and outdated. Rooms at the back are quiet but would be a lot of road noise for front rooms. Rooms are standard old motel style and parking spaces tights.
Breakfast room is nice, bright and neat, the complimentary continental breakfast included in our tariff was very good. .

We stayed here for three nights recently and found the staff and facilities to be excellent. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was included in our tariff in the 'Morning Room' and it was a really nice way to start off the day. The only 'down' side would have to be that I found the car parking a little challenging as the hotel was full and there wasn't a huge amount of room to pull in and out of a parking spot. Nothing that a little patience couldn't cope with mind you!! All in all a wonderful stay and I would definitely return there next time we are in Geelong.

We stayed at the Best Western last night... and I have to say that the service was amazing! They let us print out a document we had forgotten at home at no charge... offered us an umbrella to use in today's rain... and were extremely friendly and welcoming at all times!! I would definitely return, and would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Geelong afordably! Thanks so much!

I live in Melbourne but have to regularly commute to Geelong for university. I've tried a few other motels in Geelong and based on cost/location/comfort, the Admiralty Motor Inn can't be beat and so I booked in a long-term stay with them for the duration of my 7-week placement at the Geelong Hospital (a short walk away). I've stayed in many of their standard rooms and the superior room, and the quality is consistent throughout - quiet environment (I was surprised by this considering the motel's proximity to the main part of town), comfortable queen bed with good electric blankets and heating system, clear plasma screen TV, FANTASTIC wifi (even better than the system my software engineer sister set up at home!), big clean bathrooms, desk to work at, and comfy arm chairs to curl up in with their complimentary hot chocolate and shortbread biscuits at the end of a long day :) As a young female on my own, I always felt safe in the motel and this was really important for me as I work odd shift times at the hospital. Mark, Linda, and Denise who run the motel are wonderful - always cheery and friendly, and ever ready to help accommodate my requests. It was such a pleasure staying with them and the motel is top on my list the next time I have a placement in Geelong.

I am a regular guest at the Admiralty Motel when travelling with work, and stay there a least one night each month - as I have over the past 5+ years.
The proprietors (the 3rd owners during my patronage) are friendly and helpful; the rooms are always clean, comfortable and affordable, with a choice of single, double and family rooms available.

The breakfast room is open seven days a week and offers a choice of continental or cooked breakfasts. There is a restaurant attached: ‘The Empire Grill’ which is owned and operated separately from the motel. It is currently rated amongst the best restaurants within Geelong, and is certainly worth sampling their menu. An added bonus is that motel guests receive a 15% discount when dinning in. Room service is also available.
Overall, the Admiralty is a good place to stay. It is very close to Kardinia Park (AFL ground), Gull Airport bus shuttle and the CBD is only a short walk or drive down the hill.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the road (McKillop Street) are the most spacious, but tend to suffer the inevitable...

Good location close to the shops and footy. Reasonably priced and a great home cooked breakfast. We had a quiet room and a short distance to our luggage. Restaurant is adjoining with a pub nearby. ..............
