Accommodation was tight at Tralgon on this Tuesday night and we had not booked anywhere. Another motel which was full at 4pm told us about this place. The motel is walking distance to McDonald's and Red Rooster if you need a hit of grease in your diet. Not much around in the way of places to eat here on a cold winters night and everyone seemed to have shut up shop by 6pm in the main street which is about 10 -12 mins walk from the motel. The 2 floor motel had one room left when we arrived and the friendly man at the desk said it was a family room and we could have it for $110 for the night- it was normally $115.There is parking outside the door. The place is clean, its fairly quiet although there was some minor road noise from the big trucks later at night, but not bad enough to keep you awake all night.There is a good sized tv and the reverse cycle air con was fairly new. The unit is not realy sound proof and you can hear the toilets flushing above you which was annoying, the shower has a water saving showerhead and it gives minimum water although it was hot. I was disappointed with this. The queen sized bed was comfortable and the room clean. For a one night stay its ok but not flash in any way. Perhaps a little overpriced for the location on the road. I thought about 5.5 /10 for what we paid for.
