Stayed here for one night on the way to Adelaide. Its cheap and clean. By no means is it fancy, and there may be a plastic trestle table in the room, but its good for the mount of money you pay for it.

My wife and I stayed here for one night because...it was cheap! Its an old motel and desperately needs updating but you can tell the owners have put a lot of effort into trying to make it look nice and keep it clean. There was a fridge with free water as well as a microwave, couch, and extra bed in...

A nice comfortable stay. Alas the aircon Too noisy. Bed comfortable and staff friendly. Breakfast ok. Centrally located and services all around. At first I was a bit hesitant to stay but the comfy bed and smiling staff made it good. I'd stay here again.

We were looking for cheap accommodation on our way from Adelaide to Melbourne and the price of a room at the Smerdon was not easy to pass.($77). To say our first impression was one of disappointment until we took stock of what we had. The Wardrobe featured a plug bar which took power to four points, not particularly safe !!...

The motel is old, but the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and approachable. Breakfast included in the very reasonable price was a bonus. Maybe we just sleep soundly, but we didn't hear any traffic or train noises and would definitely return

This is a budget motel as per the price, it was clean though and they put us in a room down the back to be away from the road noise - all good until the 4 am train came through sounded like it was going to smash into us. So got up early and turned on the shower and ......

Smerdon Lodge Motel I found through the dog holiday vacations website. And I have been very happy with the management service support I received, of particular mention Ian and Margaret - who I believe were on Day 3 training, when I sought their help from a lost trail in the Grampians. The management couple ensured the safety of me (by...

We were looking for a reasonably priced motel for two nights, located within easy reach of the Grampians and surrounds. Room was very spacious by motel standards - equipped with a double and a single bed (sleeps 3), ensuite bathroom, sofa couch and writing table, mini-fridge, microwave and toaster! Best of all a cupboard with wine glasses and cutlery sets....

We booked for 2 nights. Check in was quick and staff friendly. Price included breakfast, so value for money. Its an older motel but rooms were clean, Room was cleaned daily. They pool area was small but enough for a quick dip to cool down after a day of sight seeing.

Smerdon Lodge M... H, Owner at Smerdon Lodge Motel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, it is very much appreciated. Clearly every property owner prefer positive reviews, however we all understand that each to their own. The biggest criticism properties have is that guests fail to mention the negative issues to the property management whilst they are at the property, instead they place their reviews online when they get home......
