The motel is located off the main road so can be a little noisy at first but then it gets better as the night goes on. The motel is an 70's style but is fitted out with new beds and coverings. The bed was very comfortable, The room was fitted out with new carpet and well appointed with tea and... More

This little budget motel is perfect for a stopover on your way down the coast. It's super clean and our host could not have been more accommodating when we had a small reservation hiccup. It can be chilly along the water and our room had a heating pad that warmed the entire bed. That was thoughtful and unexpected. Very nice.... More

We stopped here from South Australia with a Jetstar flight at Avalon in the morning. This was a great location to make that last part of the trip quite easy. It is clearly a budget hotel, and I booked it as such, but was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and freshness of the room. The architecture may be a bit... More

Travelling from Sydney to Geelong for work, this was a last minute booking made by my company. Fight arrived in to Melbourne late and still needed to drive down. Arriving at around midnight to the property, all the lights were off. Called the hotel and a nice man answered. He came down and checked me in. Very polite and helpful.... More

We arrived on a late flight from Sydney, so by the time we got to the accommodation it was midnight. We choose this motel as it was a short 20 minute drive from the airport. When we got to the room we noticed that it was very cold, there is a/c heater in the room which takes a couple of... More

My husband and I had a 3 night stay at this motel while on a road trip from the Gold Coast to Geelong. The Manager was so nice and helpful. A lovely lady serviced our room every day, even though we said it wasn't necessary. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotlessly clean and was like a home... More

Priced about right. Basic, but very comfortable and clean room. Nice staff. The parking is very tight, normal enough for a motel. Right on the highway but i didn't have any problem with noise. I stayed one night and had no complaints whatsoever.

Very pleasant reception, rooms were budget friendly, and comfortable. Some very minor maintenance issues that in no way affected the stay, and these are works in progress as the motel is being continually improved upon. Would recommend staying here, if for no other reason than the helpful and friendly staff.

Well the motel was clean enough apart from the embedded smell of smoke. The furnishings were very tired and worn. Repairs had been attempted but looked very poor attempts at a repair. Walls were very thin and typical of a cheap motel built in the 70s. The tiles in the bathroom had been painted in an attempt to brighten up... More

Clean and neat rooms. Could do with a slight update to decor. Polite and easy going manager. Good location. 15mins walk to Cunningham Pier and great selection of cafes and restaurants. 5mins walk to Esplanade and walking and bike tracks.
