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 here as our preferred Motels in Apollo Bay required a two night minimum during school holidays which didn't work for us. On arrival I was shocked by the bright yellow exterior paintwork and small parking area. Things got worse when the reception area was empty and when the Reception person came he spoke no English, just Chinese. He used a phone translator when things got tricky. However the rooms have been recently refurbished with very modern and clean bathrooms. There was a funny smell throughout which I think was from the cleaning products. Our room (Double $200) faced a plot of weeds so not at all attractive, but our Friends had a Twin room ($150) facing the beach. Walking distance to all the cafes and restaurants in the town and directly across from beach access. Beds were comfortable and we slept well.

The hardest bed I have ever slept on. It was like sleeping on milk crates. A bad smell as soon as you walk in the door. No English spoken by the owners. I would not go back again but if it wasn’t for the bed everything else would have been OK. Way too expensive for the tiny room we had.

We booked a family room as well as the twin room with balcony. Both are very clean & have everything we need. Very comfy & quite spacious. Lovely bathroom & great shower. Not listed in facilities though both rooms have a microwave as well as bar fridge, kettle, toaster, hair dryer. Also mugs, glasses, plates & cutlery. 2 towels for every person (8 in family room), bath mats, spare doona. Only saying this as I had read a couple of reviews here saying bath mats were missing. Huge supply of toiletries nicely presented as well as tea, cappuccino sachets, sugar & a couple small long life milks. Large flat screen TV in both rooms (2 in the family room). Location is great, only a minutes walk to the Main Street. Bucket of umbrellas at the font door for guests is a nice touch too. Balcony view is great! To be honest, after reading reviews I was getting a little worried however we are more than happy with our rooms which have barely a fault so I thought I’d better post this update. So far the only fault I can see is a bit of damage on the bottom of the bathroom door however this doesn’t affect our stay at all. 5 stars from me & my family. The owners here have obviously taken note of past reviews.

When we arrived at 1.30 there was a note on the desk with a Mobile and advising that check in was 2.00 pm. We called the mobile and a man said he would get back to us. Then along came this young woman who did not speak any english at all - she did her very best to understand that we wanted to leave our bags there until 2.00 and showed us into a messy room to leave our bags. When we came back at 3.30 the room was not ready we were told - eventually we got into our room at 4.45 - I suspect this young woman is v over-worked and the only person doing all the jobs. Whilst the sheets were clean the covers had many stains on them - during our time we encountered a couple who had a booking but when they arrived they had no booking. Would not recommend this hotel on any level - the hotel itself is not clean and for the price is disappointing to say the least.-

Last minute booking and this motel was suitable for our 1 nite stay. The room was large and modern and It was well equipped with all we needed. It was within easy walking distance to the town Centre. The staff were helpful and easy to deal with for our stay.

The location directly on the sea was wonderful. The room was bright and friendly, the bathroom surprised with hyper-modern equipment, although apparently there were not enough funds for a new door (which was old and scraped). There were only two bath towels, no hand towels, no floor mat. The low point was the balcony overlooking the sea. We could only open the door with force and the assistance of a friendly Asian woman, who unfortunately hardly spoke English. Above the balcony nested a sparrow family, which had left its droppings all over the balcony and side by side on the railing. The proud price of AUD 300 for the night was anything but reasonable. But thank God it was only one night.

Our stay was comfortable and pleasant at the Odyssey, just a short walk from an endless,beautiful wide beach with lots of entertaining surfers. However, the spacious and stylish bathroom lacked a bath mat or any extra towels to substitute nor was there a single wash cloth. Advising the front desk was not an option as the friendly agent did not seem to speak enough English for communication. This was very minor issue but an expected amenity for the price of our room.

Though I only started on a hotel room, it was a great experience. I could easily walked to the laundromat and bought dinner from there. The room was nice too and watched TV. We went to walk to a nearby beach and there was so much jellyfish! But it is quite thrilling.

A lovley little motel with modernised rooms that are clean, roomy and warm. Easy check in. Our winter stay was brief but very restful and enjoyable. Downstairs room per our request on the road front, was quiet and we had a lovely little view of the ocean. Great internet connection and TV services.
