We have stayed at the Always Welcome Motel several times now & have found it to be just what we need. It is easy walking distance to the CBD but as it is just off the main road it is lovely & quiet. The rooms are spacious albeit old style & there is a coffee machine in each room as...

I initially called the hotel to find out if they had adjoining rooms as we preferred this for two adults and two children (one is a baby), we were also booking another room for my mother who was also travelling with us. They informed me they did not have adjoining rooms but after explaining that my son was a terrible...

We stayed here overnight, the room was well appointed and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and let us use their laundry to dry so clothes that had got wet due to riding motorbikes in the rain. We were able to park our motorbikes under an awning out of the weather.

I stayed here for a work trip. The rooms are great. Comfy bed, with electric blanket, room to move about, hot shower, coffee machine, microwave, free wifi and TV... what more could you want? A great location next to the Rose Garden and close to nice cafes (SaltBush is lovely) and shops. My only negative is that the room smelt...

We booked this hotel after comparing similarly priced ones on hotels combined. We chose this due to the breakfast that was included (either continental, or bacon, eggs and toast) and the pool. When we arrived noone was at reception and we had to use our own phones to contact someone to come let us in ~ this was in the...

Really nice touches. Electric blankets plus extra regular blankets. Decent sized Tv and a real coffee maker. Tasty breakfast delivered to your door. Fabulous location close to the Morwell township. ND

We visited for a sailing competition over the long weekend. It was conveniently close to the Hazelwood Pondage, and the cheapest accommodation on comparison websites, which is probably why half the place was booked out with sailors. The room was relatively nice. The bed was pretty hard and probably needed to be replaced. The coat hangers were permanently attached to...

Staff were some of the rudest people I have ever met. We had a large group booking of multiple rooms which they had overbooked and forced to pay extra for a room upgrade which was defiantly not worth it. Rooms were very basic, our door didn't lock properly and the showers were terrible with poor pressure. Never ever will I...

Excellent environment - everything you want for an overnight stay - offered an upgrade - totally satisfied with original room so stayed with that. Motel experience worth coming back for when there is another great show on at the Latrobe Gallery which was just a few doors down!

We stayed one night and were extremely happy with the location, the service and the room. The room was very clean and the staff very helpful. It's a short walk to the main shops, and very close to the centenary rose garden. Would definitely recommend this motel to others visiting Morwell.
