“Amazingly helpful owner, Harry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

My husband and I phoned the owner, Harry, about 5.30pm on a week night in late March to see if there was a room available for one night as we were on a road trip and travelling back to the Sunshine Coast. Because of a Farm World event most places were fully booked for about 150km radius but Harry put through countless phone calls to other motel owners in the vicinity to see if he could get anywhere for my husband and I. He was unsuccessful but suggested another area further on. I wouldnt hesitate to ever recommend anyone stay at this motel as the reviews I have read are great and going by the amazing effort Harry made to try to find us accommodation, even though he couldnt accommoate us, shows he cares. Wonderful guy!!!!

Could hear TV nextdoor all night. So, not a good night's sleep! The breakfast was basic and no different to any where else I've found. The rooms are very dark and dim if you're hoping for any natural light. No, I would not be staying again.

Room Tip: Get another Motel if you want to sleep.

After a bad experience at a motel earlier in the day we were desperate for a room. The owner was more than helpful offering services above and beyond. The rooms were nice, clean and quiet with all necessary facilities. Will definitely stay here again :)

Comfortable motel - well located near to centre of town. The owners were lovely and the breakfast delivered to the room was good value.
They Do need to improve the showers but apart from that the room was well equiped.
We would stay again!

had an overnight say in Morwell, and came across the Econo Lodge. Upon arrival the office staff were very welcoming and offered to show us the room before we booked the room. They were extremely helpful in arranging a room for four. Their customer service was excellent and extremely friendly and inviting. The rooms were neat, tidy and modern. Will happily stay here again. As we go to Morwell quite often, we will stay here again. We would recommend to anyone staying in the area. Absolutely superb!

I was in Latrobe area for a two month government contract. I made Morwell my base as it is the central point. I check myself and my off sider in to the Econo Lodge. What a great call. Harry and Lauren the owner managers of the motel from day 1 were only too eager to make our stay as trouble free and as enjoyable as you can trapped in a motel for two month. The rooms are very comfortable and the cleaning staff kept them absolutely spotless during our stay Thanks girls. The in house meals were amazing. We dined at most of the restaurants in the town and not one served a better quality meal as what we got in house at the motel. I have stayed many places around Australia and the econo lodge with Harry and Lauren at the helm wold have to be right up there at the top as one of my most enjoyable and memorable stays. On check out it was more like saying goodbye to old friends you had just spent a two month holiday with than a motel you stayed at for work .As much as I was looking forward to getting home, it was kind of sad to leave.

Room Tip: Let Harry or Lauren know of any special requests you have when you book in and I’m sure you will be...
