“Decent digs”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Stayed here to visit family & not as a tourist. The place was very clean & looked recently refurbished paint, carpet. Rooms smallish with the sink in the bedroom & not bathroom to allow for minimal cooking. The bed firm & on wheels so bed mindful. Linen clean & not showing age like the giant Bandicoot out front. Could hear neighbours but no sleep lost. Staff lovely only gripe water temp would change during shower I assume when others shower shouldn't happen in a motel.

Stayed September 2013, traveled solo

Rooms are small but clean and has kitchen facilities, iron and board, hair dryer. Bed very comfortable.
Had room facing highway but traffic did not disturb us. Meal in restaurant was great. Manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

I'm a sales rep and the Bandicoot Motor Inn is excellent value for reps. Good clean, modern rooms. Basic kitchen facilities which is great for me as I take oatmeal and own food to prepare. Friendly owner. Warm heater. Comfortable bed! Will definately stay again

This motor-inn is on the Hotel Network and has a few workers that stay here on a regular basis (mostly male) that come back and forth at early and late hours of the night. It is not recommended for people (light sleepers) that are staying here for a long period of time, like 1-2 weeks or more that want peace and quietness and comfort. The previous review of the heater/air conditioner was so true. Gross hey! And I had to fight off a huge spider !
You can hear everything going on next door like the tv, noise, talking and the trucks on the road keep coming, so not good if you have to be someplace the next day early!
Yes, there is a cemetery very close. Just reminding you!
The Motor-Inn is located around 5kms from the town centre.
Despite all this, the managers are fantastic and friendly. They act on your requests. The food at the restaurant here is good!

Again, good for one night on your way to Melb or Adelaide..... lovely people that work there for your short stay!

Stayed at the Bandicoot recently enroute to Melb/Adl sign out front says its the oldest motel in the Weston district or similar,looks ok from the road ,rooms look ok at first glance from the door,warmish afternoon lets fire up the aircon fortuitously the unit was a above the door job allowing you to see a section of the filter under the facia cover as you looked up. At first glance I thought it had a wool filter insitu,thinking "this is strange "removed the cover for a better look to my disgust found a standard air/con filter that looked like wool because the amount of lint etc accumulated in it had to be seen to be believed!.
Now alerted (or alarmed ?) a closer look at the unit revealed similar amounts of lint under bed(with bonus toe clippings) dust/lint on all flat surfaces above or below eye level (I was not brave enough to pull back the bedding to inspect the mattress) preferring to repeat over to myself "Its only for one night,don't think about it".Oh for those readers who may be superstitious the back fence of the motel backs onto the local cemetery.
