“A mixed bag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

When I chose this it looked good online. When we saw the location we were worried, right near a busy shopping centre and it looked rough. A gang of lads were hanging around their car under the motel drinking (we saw them on both nights we were staying) not a good 1st impression. However the welcome at check in was warm, and the room was clean. The lift smelled musty and was v slow and a bit of a worry. We didn't like to park under the motel due to the drinking youths but the car was ok parked in the other carpark. Location was ok for the river but you'd need transport to get to the waterfront which is the nicest bit of Geelong. We probably wouldn't stay there again, it was ok but I was a bit disappointed overall.

It wasn't my 1st option but pretty good for alternative. Participated the Geelong 70.3 triathlon event. Location was outside the CBD. Fantastic having Coles right opposite the motel. Very nice reception. Good sleep as away from traffic. View was facing the next door backyard but no complains there. Would have preferred having the TV on the table rather than mounted up. Rather small for 2 bikes & 2 big luggage. Room & bathroom was clean. Rooms were located on 1st & 2nd floor with lift services (though slow).

We used TripAdvisor to find this place and were happy we did. It met our expectations. It is an order place, but new carpets and paint. Beds very comfort. Coles across the road. New flat panel tv is a little small and mounted up near the ceiling.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn Parkside in February 2013 and found the accommodation to be well suited to our short stay. The room was clean and tidy and the bed very comfortable. The reception service was very welcoming and were more than happy to assist our needs when required. We appreciated the location, service and price for the length of stay. Thanks

We stayed for 2 nights and were surprised by the few number of guests. We are regular visitors to Geelong and have stayed at many of the other hotels/motels, but in terms of value for money this comes out very high. We had a queen and single bed in our room together with a small table and chairs. Whilst the furnishings are old they are clean and sufficient. The bathroom was fine with toiletries and a hair dryer. There was a fridge with tea and coffee facilities and a toaster in the room. The AC worked well and we didn't need to use the electric blankets on the bed. You could have breakfast in your room but there was no on site dining although there was plenty of places nearby. Opposite the motel is a 24 hr KMart and Coles and some other shops. The room was quiet and there was hardly any traffic noise. Parking was undercover and even though only 2 storey there is a lift for easy access.

We stayed here for one night in April - we stayed in a family room. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small, but perfectly functional. Great for the price. We'd stay here again.
