Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Don’t waste your money!!! This is terrible and filthy motel I have ever stayed in in Australia!! Don’t waste your money, not only are the appliances not safe, the motel is used for correctional patrol purposes, while you are staying there!!!! I have information that the motel is well known to the charity organisations to assist people whom are homeless for permanent stays There has been stabbings drugs and alcoholics living there on a permanent basis And yet the money hungry owner, will still book families, single vulnerable people whilst post patrol people have been booked there DONT STAY THERE!!!! I booked 6 nights lasted 2 and was not able to have a refund at all - loosing $500 It needs to be one or the other People who require a place whilst on parol Or for holiday makers It cannot be for both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SIMPLE ITS DISGUSTING ITS DISTURBING ITS NOT SAFE, BED IS FROM THE 70’s WITH A MASSIVE DIP JUST DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR GO SOMEWHERE ELSE

I will NOT recommend you to book this “ Motel”. 1. The rooms don’t look as nice as they do in pictures. The floors are full of HAIR and they say they clean it every time anyone checks out but they DONT clean the rooms 2. Customer service is horrible here. We ask for them for the internet password for the past 5 to 6 hours but they still haven’t responded

Some of the reviews are a bit unfair, it’s affordable and clean. Is it dated? Sure. Could it do with a reno? Of course but we found it fine, beds were fine. Its kind of on the outskirts but close to a plaza and short drive to town. We found for the price it was fine

Avoid, avoid, avoid. The reception area is hard to find and it's gross inside. You do a weird webcam check-in with someone from overseas which is so off-putting. The room has signs about "NO REFUNDS" etc. Clearly, this has been an issue in the past. It's also one of those places that has signs up everywhere about behavior whilst a guest - always the sign of a dodgy place. I had almost no toilet paper in the bathroom, but got such attitude from the manager/ owner on check-in that I just used my own. The bathroom window has been painted so now it's permanently open - too bad if you get cold I guess. This motel appears to be the cheap option for ocean road-goers and so you get families in the rooms a lot and so there's lots of babies crying, kids running around whilst cars are being packed. Bottom line: don't be cheap, pay a bit more and stay somewhere, anywhere else.

They are making use of virtual reception which I thought was very cool. Room was clean and spacious. There was free wifi. We were able to sleep quite well. Few minutes away from the centre. Quite ok for the price.

Some would say that this place needs a complete refurb, but I wouldn’t waste the money. It’s a dump and should be demolished. Absolutely awful. Very large ants in our room, and I suspect a mouse also. Parking was tight. No reception, just a man in the Phillipines on Skype. All very odd. Give this one a miss if you can. They actually charged more for this room than top class motels in Warrnambool. Avoid, avoid, avoid! I had to give this a one star rating to be able to submit this, but in reality I wouldn’t give it anything at all.

good. clean, basic but comfortable. It was in a great location, out of the city centre but near where we needed to be. Food centres and hotel close by - too far to walk but a short drive. We visited friends on the east side of the city.

Booked the hotel for four days as it says it is pet-friendly. On checking in the reception area looks like a dump not what you would expect for a reception. Has a virtual check-in on a screen to someone over the other side of the world on skype. The parking area is not organized just chaos. cars park anywhere. The bed was hopeless had a sag in the middle. The shower you stand in a bathtub and the curtain fits around the outside so all the water runs to the floor. On the second day, the manager approached told us pets are not allowed and would cost us more money. they wanted $100 more. which is misleading as it says on several sites when you book says pet-friendly!! WI-FI drops out always having to log back in. Would I recommend Hellno Would I use it again no chance in hell. To sum it up save your money not worth it !

Save your $ and go up the road more. Crappy old motel Reception was managed via Skype! Who does that!!?? Dude who was there was helping his “mate” out that was on skype and had to hurry as he had a taxi running outside. No extra blankets in the wardrobe for extra warmth especially in the middle of winter. Flimsy doona with doona cover and the sheets weren’t all that straight on the bed. To scared to sleep on the actual sheets/bed as not knowing what we would get? They need help on the bed making area and the way guests check in! Really old style air con in the top of the window that was so noisey you couldn’t hear the tv when it was on. Pokey shower with hardly any water pressure. Looked more like a room where you would take a 1 night stand. Sorry but don’t go there
