The manager was incredibly helpful - I didn't have a working phone number and he helped me contact my family on his own phone at midnight!!

Visiting Geelong for the first time to attend the "All Ford Day"with our 1965 Ford Falcon Ute”
The motel was very convenient for us as travellers,There is a servo right out the front (convenience store) Wonderful eating venue (the Gateway Hotel) just down the road, and in our case driving a Classic vehicle the Vintage Markets, a little further down the road. (Excellent) We were aware the Motel was/is in management transition, however the acting Manager did her duties very well, but we felt that she was not dressed in a very professional manner considering her role.. It was a great stay with a complimentary continental breakfast, We would stay here again if visiting Geelong.
Inexpensive, price included a light self-serve breakfast. Room was small, but adequate, and appeared clean except that a used towel was found hanging on the bathroom door. Although on a busy road, traffic noise was minimal. I am not often in Geelong, but wouid use this motel again George from Mildura
Nice stay and good location”
Enjoyed my stay there it was a good location for Corio and all the staff I came into contact with was very friendly
Clean, comfortable and friendly staff”
We stayed at the motel after coming back from a concert in Melbourne. We arrived midnight and the traffic beside the motel was not so noisey. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfast for free before going to work. Had a nice chat with friendly staff members. The Wi-Fi signal might be weak.
Excellent experience! Well located with supermarket, restaurant and beach just walking distances. Information centre just opposite the motel. The room is clean and well furnished.
Very helpful staff”
If you have a really long layover at Avalon, it's better to go to this motel. I arrived in Melbourne just before midnight, but the reception is open until 9 PM. The receptionist emailed me how and where I could find the key. I was really thankful for that!! Otherwise, i'd have spent the night at the airport. The room was okay. Clean. Tea and coffee provided.
Great bed! Very cold in winter though so get the blanket out before you fall asleep. Water pressure could be better but it gets nice and hot. Pleasant surprise for a highway motel:
Old, tired and noisy as it is located on the Melbourne / Geelong road. We chose this motel as it was close to Avalon Airport and we are unfamiliar with the area and sight unseen prior to making a booking.
Great service, hotel served its purpose”
Firstly excellent service by Gail, very accommodating. Easy checkin despite late arrival and easy checkout with key drop box next to reception. Room was clean and had bowls and cutlery to eat food with. Good standard for a Motel.
cheapest & cleanliness&comfortable Motel we've had”
We didn't know what 2 expect, ? & wen we went upstairs & open the door we were very very impressed with how reasonable sized rm, micrrowave, crockery, new bed, new towels, new shower curtain, new curtains, hairdryer, iron ironboard, fresh fluffy pillows, then we found out that our $93 included our breakfast in the breakfast room down stairs which was very inviting clean & modern electrical & set up buffet bench....... For 2 ppl we were very impressed. It was older bathroom but clean & the above items stated above you font even get them in a $140.00 Nite em, we hav been on the road from QLD, Down 2 NSW & now VIC, & it was the best Nite sleep my 83 yr old mother & I hav had in 2 weeks. Staff were excellent, friendly & had time 4 U, they even said it was okay to take breakfast upstairs 2 our rm due 2 mums knees & it was welcome 4 us 2 do do, cheers, we will staying again as we travel twice a year firm tis way 👍😃
Wouldn’t stay here again. ”
There was basically no lighting in the room which made the room dark, there was mould on the shower curtains, (It’s easy to replace them?) the toilet didn’t flush properly, and the rooms are over looking the busy highway which can be bit noisy if you’re a light sleeper, however the bed linen and towels provided were clean, I just don’t think we would stay here again, considering we need to travel to Geelong often, we will go somewhere else next time.
All satisfactory EXCEPT.............”
As always, this is a tired old motel that is nevertheless perfectly adequate for the unfussy traveller. I had only two issues 1. In the past I was emailed quickly after reservation with room number and the PIN for after-hours key safe. This time, after waiting quite a few hours, I had to ring them for this info. 2. The key came with instructions sheet with my name on the header so it clearly was printed that day. It said the free web was on the dlink network but no such network was available overnight or in the morning. I'm no net newb. I can find a network if it's there. Look, it didn't really inconvenience me but a business traveller might really find it a problem.
You can find everything you need, they have a toaster, a microwave, a flatiron and board, and some snacks. Staff is helpful and warm-heart. The motel is not far from Avalon Airport.
A weekend in Geelong”
While bed and breakfast were good the motel itself is set back in the 1960's, the room was small and the shower was very small and hard to regulate the water (too hot- too cold). Directions were scant relating to room location and car parking arrangements. (more rooms than car parks). I would rate it about 5.
Nothing flash but nothing wrong either.”
It's an old, kinda' tired-looking motel but my room was clean and warm and the manager was friendly (and prompt with needed info before I arrived). Good enough for my simple needs.
Decent place to stay for a short time”
The location is good, on a main road and two petrol stations about, the room was well equiped with TV, microwave, cultery, bowls ad plates etc. The bathroom could have been cleaner and the motel is starting show it's age. Breatfast was good with as it was continental and much variety.
Old but everything works”
The amenities have seen better days, but for a very reasonable price you get extras like microwave, hairdryer, breakfast and wifi. Be aware that the upstairs rooms face the highway so expect traffic noise all night. However, we were so tired that it didn't bother us.
Good accommodation for overnight stay”
an older style classic motel,very clean and neat. owner was very nice.overall a good overnight stay in a 3 star motel.
Good price and location great brekkie but hair in the sheets they did not change them and crumbs and pie filling on table
