          I`d highly recomend this Motel to anyone wanting basic clean comfortable accomodation . Sure my room was small , but for me on my own , I had a bed , a TV , a shower and toilet , all clean , couldn`t ask for anything more , I had a kettle , toaster , microwave , WiFi , and a bloody great breakfast , help yourself in the dining room , unbeatable , and low price considering the location . Lastly , the staff , sense of humour , friendly and helpful , very rare these days . Thank you Corio Bay Motel , I`ll be back soon .

          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.

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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          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.
