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.

We stayed this April on this motel, recently they refurbish the room that we stayed as disable-friendly (my wife has some problems) shower was very wide with handrails and parking was a disabled one right next to the room. We had some people parking there but we had a very friendly attitude from the receptionist/concierge/gardener who was always helpful and with a smile on his face, he lend us a cone to be put in our space. Twice some people park there but they moved right away. This motel is pet friendly too. We plan go come back here.

I love visiting and staying in Warnnambool each year and trying new accommodation. Gateway motor inn host was friendly and very accommodating when TV didn't turn on. Breakfast, continental, was included in the fantastic online deal. Bed, great size and comfortable. Room 6 included new carpet and freshly painted. A couch, table and corner bath were great.. Even though on the main road into warrnambool it was quiet in the room, at the back. There is a major Shopping Centre across the road. I walked into town (5.4km) and was quite easy. I enjoyed the stay and already recommended to others

The carpets are old and smelly. The room has this musty smell due to the carpet being so old. The smell is so strong I could not sleep. I had to rub Vics Vaporub around my nose to dilute the smell. Also, there is only 1 washbasin. One uses the toilet and food preparations but uses the same basin. I strongly disagree that that is a hygienic provision. Walls have chipped paints. Needs a new paint job to freshen up. Also, the airconditioning/heating is too noisy. It's the older type. Even though I turned off the one in my room so I could sleep, I could hear the heating/airconditioning noise from next door. I would go to a newer or renovated accomodation next time. I enjoyed Warnambool but not the accomodation.

Normally I stay at the gateway when I travel for business but this time I had my wife and 3 month old son along for a visit to the grandparents for the long weekend. As per usual the service and facilities is perfect. Brendan and Udae (site manager) organised a bigger room to accommodate all our "baby" things. As normal we had a great stay and can recommend the gateway motor inn Warrnambool for both business and holiday.

I'm afraid I wouldn't consider staying here again. The room was large and reception was friendly but... - the spa was discoloured, as was the water - the air conditioner was oddly placed, and did not actually cool the room - the refrigerator was faulty, and froze all of my food and drinks, resulting in over $20 of food having to be thrown out, a drink exploding, and an inability to actually have any cold drinks or food in the room - the pool was badly discoloured at the bottom and was therefore unappealing to use - don't know if it was mould or what but we didn't like the look of it - the housekeeper failed to replace the toilet paper, leaving us with none. When I asked for more I was told to go find the housekeeper and get some from her. Took 10 minutes to find her as she was in a room with the door shut. Meanwhile my 8 year old was busting to go to the toilet - surely we could have just been given some toilet paper? - housekeeping was shoddy, beds not made properly. Might sound petty but for the price I was paying I expected a bit more. I think you can get better value for money elsewhere in Warrnambool.

Clean, comfy beds, good shower. Nothing fancy, but recently refreshed rooms in very good condition. Would stay again. Includes all the typical amenities that you would expect in a motel- tv, fridge, kettle, milk, coffee and tea, soaps etc.

Is about 5 minutes, by car, from town centre on main highway into Warrnambool. Limited traffic noise and no disturbance from nearby rooms. Not much nearby so would generally need own transport if staying here. Very suitable for overnight stop. Plenty of on site parking available and at room door. While clean to a very good standard and fresh new sheets on bed, which was also extremely comfortable, overall room, furnishings and fittings getting a bit tired. Ensuite bathroom in need of refurbishment. While plenty of hot water, shower was difficult to manage at consistent temperature. Has A/C if required. Good free wifi and TV reception. Had a comfortable stay and pleasant hosts. Overall value for money.
