    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 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.

    No care for clientelle ”

    As a single lady staying one night I did not feel safe when a bikie gang chose to have a party in the carpark directly outside the door of my motel room. The noise they made meant no sleep and at midnight I decided to leave and drive 2 hours to my next destination. I felt unsafe going to my car while the bikies yelled come have a drink and don't you want to party love. There was no phone number supplied to contact management on the night. I have emailed the owner twice to lodge a complaint and have not received a response at all. I realise Corio Bay Motel is not the classiest of places to stay but I don't t think it is unreasonable to expect to be able to sleep, to feel safe or for management to respond to my concerns. I would not recommend Corio Bay Motel

    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.

    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.

    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.
