Good location and clean”

Motel Marengo was a nice place to stay. It is close to the beach and only 5 minutes drive away from the main Apollo Bay shops and beach, so there are less people and it's a lot quieter. The room itself was clean but felt a little small. This would be the only negative. The pool was very nice and there is a spa too. A BBQ area is also available if required. The staff seemed friendly, however we didn't talk much since it's not our first visit to the area. There are only about 10 units in the motel, and although they are right next to each other there was limited noise, which is always good. I'd recommend Motel Marengo and would stay there again.

Enjoyable stay”

We stayed at Motel Marengo for 2 night to explore the Great Ocean Road. The motel is located just 3 minutes drive to Apollo Bay town centre and 30 minutes walk and is a great spot for exploring the area, especially the beautiful Cape Cotway. It's nothing fancy but good value compared to other acommodations around the area, clean and got a great pool/spa and bbq area.

Accessibility, Staff, Comfort

We stayed in Motel Marengo for a night while travelling along GOR, and it was all that we needed after a long day of drive! The room was huge, ideal for a family, and it comes with a parking lot right outside the unit which makes it all the more convenient. It was a short drive away from Apollo Bay, where we had our meals covered. Staff was friendly, check in/out was fuss free. Basic amenities present. Recommended!

Excellent stay with Great service”

Big & Spacious room, Free Wifi, movies for rent, Great Service & Good location

We drove the Great Ocean road from morning, and arrived at Motel Marengo at about 9.15am. We were promptly & nicely greeted by the receptionist (I forget his name), and he checked if our room was available. Before giving us the key, he tooked a map and explained all the sights around the area, and the good places to eat. He made it very simple, and basically gave us a plan of what we could do and see with the amount of time we had left before it got dark. Upon entering the room, it looked exactly like it shows on the Agoda website, with a queen bed by the door, and a round table further inside with chairs around. It was extremely spacious as we had 4 adults travelling together. The shower was a little small though, but hot water was readily available very quickly. When we got back at night, we tried the wifi. Signal in the room is rather weak, as the router is located at the front counter which is about 20-30 metres away. However, when we took our phones out and walked towards the counter, we could FaceTime with very little lag! Overall, it was a really pleasant stay, and we'll definitely recommend people to this motel. Will be glad to be back again!

Attentive staff, great location, wonderful stay”

Comfort, surroundings, staff

Motel Marengo is a great stopover for travelers along the Great Ocean Road. We get to have free board games to pass our time in this quiet town at night, which many motels/hotels did not offer. Great views watching the birds gather at the fences, close proximity to town eateries and the beach. Overall, a wonderful stay with comfortable beds in which warmers were provided and working well. Cable TV is installed so another value-added service that others lack. Would have stayed a few more nights if not for traveling further down the GOR.

It's not located in the main Apollo Bay town centre. It's about 3 km from the town centre. The room floor area is 28 sqm. It comes with a small kitchen & a dining table. would recommend to stay in this motel. They have some parrots in the garden. You may park you car right in front of your hotel room. Apollo Bay is a good location to stop for the night along the Great Ocean road.

The Staff, Clean & Comfortable rooms

Motel Marengo; is located about 15-20mins drive from Apollo City center, as it's situated at the start of the Great Ocean Road, it's quite unlikely for me to recommend this motel as the long & winding road to Port Campbell will take you another 1hr30mins, unless you love to stop over at the motel overnight for clean n comfortable room & friendly staff

Staff was friendly and helpful and gave us good information regarding nearby supermarkets and the town centre. The room was comfortable and pleasant, and the kitchenette was well equipped with a microwave oven, fridge, cutlery, electric kettle and washing facilities. Apollo bay is a small seaside town and the shops close quite early, so travelers should try to arrive by afternoon time. Thankfully, the motel is a short drive from the town centre and can be easily seen from the main road even in the dark.
