      Excellent”

      Motel is walking distance (3mins) to fantastic children's playground in Rippleside park. We nearly missed the place when we arrived - signage is not large - and you can't easily get to it from north traffic side of road. The family room was big for 4 people (accommodates 5) and beds very comfortable. The décor was 70s/80s, especially the bathroom, but even though old, still clean. Towels were a bit thin, but soft. Rooms not well insulated - lots of traffic noise, but we all slept through it.

      Nice stop by from Colac & Great Ocean Road”

      Came here as a stopover from the Great Ocean Road for a graduation trip with my parents. The owner was awesome in his welcome greeting, very helpful. The room interior may look dated but it is adequate to sleep in for the stopover night. Other than that, it is a short drive to the Geelong Waterfront where you can catch the breeze there. I will come back here soon if I need to visit Victoria again.

      Located just outside Geelong but still near.. I just needed a place to stay for the night coming back from great ocean road and this place was OK. Design wise it was quite dated but still clean. I got the family room which was more than enough for my family with 3 little kids.

      Comfort at a great price.”

      Loved the beds they were so comfortable. Pillows were the best I have ever had at a motel. Easy to find and centrally located.

      My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We both wanted to stay in the beds because they were so comfortable. My son wanted to bring a bed home with him. Only negative comment I would make is the noise from the traffic being on the Melbourne road, it never stopped. This is not the fault of the motel though and not a reason to not stay there again. Overall, a very comfortable, clean room and great value for the price.

      Checkin was easy. Motel is an old style motel, maybe in the 1990s. Room was clean, but the toilet area was a bit cold at night as there was no heating facilities. There was also limited kitchen facilities with a microwave and toaster. If you are looking for a modern style motel, this might not be the place. However, for the price paid, I think it is fine for a night.
