          You don't REALLY get what you think you're getting.”

          Stayed in the King size room to enjoy sleeping in a king size bed, what i got was 2 single beds pushed together. So i paid for a king amd slept on a single. Breakfast daily? Sure, if you're under 5 years old. I'd barely class it as continental, a small handful of cereal, long life milk and a mini muffin. Also they don't follow there own rules, in room info stated that of I am staying multiple night the cleaner wouldn't do my room til the 3rd day, so I went out and left my clothes assuming no one would be in there but they cleaned and I felt like my privacy was invaded and the cleaner must have thought I had no shame. The rooms are old but clean but for $20 extra a night I could have stayed somewhere with new furnishing and a full size bed.

          The facilities were old, but clean. Shower water pressure was intermitted and you cannot drink water from the taps (unsafe as per their sign on the bathroom mirror). No alternative water was provided which would have been thoughtful.

          Disappointed”

          Pool ad about 250 to stay the night. One reason for the booking was that I had a late check out until 12pm. When I checked in I was told I had to check out at 10am. I had to argue my point to the staff that my booking was until 12pm and this is why I stayed here. Had to get the manger involved and rather just adjusting the booking straight away they made damn sure I was the one that was supposed to feel bad about it. Terrible service at the front desk. Was meant to be free wifi but had to stand outside the room to even get a signal. Rooms where tidy but wouldn’t recommend this place. Over priced for what it is.

          The best thing about this hotel is that it is very near to the Avalon Airport. Also it has a cafe and bar which is popular with the locals. There is wine shop within the same compound but closes early.

          This is a motel. Not a hotel”

          The pic looks like a nice hotel but it is just a motel. Had a shock at the reception becos it looks like a mini casino inside. Dark and loud music inside. Reception unfriendly and quite rude. They say they serve breakfast but it is a farce. They just give you a box with kids snacks. Felt cheated. Dont even say you offer free breakfast becos it is really cheating your customers!!! Room is big and quite clean but carpet is dirty and yukky. Only plus point is it is only 10-15 mins from Avalon Airport so if you are coming in on a night flight this would be the nearest area to sleep for the night. Have friendlier and smiling faces at the reception please!

          A nice hotel before entering Geelong city”

          It is convenient to stay here if you are having work not in Geelong area because it is not in the Geelong city centre. There are quite far away from other shops but it seems like a decent hotel behind a casino.

          First time staying here, room was very good, the breakfast pack was great the only suggestion I would have is stay away from the all you can eat have a bar meal.

          Don't really recommend it for the price ”

          Friendly staff, relatively close to Avalon airport, quick check in/out

          No wifi, holes in blanket, really bad food. However, staff is really friendly and helpful!

          大洋路第一夜落脚的motel,位置方便,不吵,空调老旧要睡觉就不能开,房间比较旧,其它还好,早餐实在要吐槽一下,麦片加果汁的方便食品,一人发一袋,实在有点…总体还行吧,适合凑活一晚那种落脚。
