Cheap motel, handy to Kardinia Park. Not suitable for extended stay.

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 May 2023via mobile
Cheap motel which appears to have had some limited renovation.

Tiny room with queen size bed and a single. No wardrobe or hanging space. Bathroom recently updated with all new fittings and tiles on floor and walls. Tiled floor throughout the unit , cold under foot. Tea and coffee facilities, no milk or cutlery. Toaster, new fridge, electric column heater. Ancient air conditioner. Desk area, two chairs, tiny bedside tables. No breakfast service. TV limited channels, picture breaks up occasionally. No wifi.

Spotlessly clean. Clean linen on bed which is comfortable and cosy. Good water pressure and temperature in shower. Clean towels but rather thin.

Ok for a casual overnight stay only.
Date of stay: May 2023
Room Tip: Walking distance from Kardinia Park
Trip type: Travelled solo

Glorified brothel...two units have working ladies living there and the noise goes on until close to midnight.
No WIFI, TV doesn't work - keeps dropping out, milk and cutlery not provided for coffee.
Curtains are filthy and torn and the beds don't appear to have been cleaned or changed.
Airconditioner looks like it was reclaimed from the tip.
I had to wait 45 minutes for the manager/owner to even show up when attempting to book in.
This place should be de-listed from any reputable booking site...at the very least, go and inspect it !!!

Room tip: Don't even consider this motel.

Under no circumstances should this place be on hotel sites, it is a crisis living support place, want to write more but would get me in trouble. Never book this place, no one would want there loved ones to stay bere.

We stayed 3 nights. Pretty much just slept there. It honestly wasnt the worst place we've stayed!! It was bad, dont get me wrong! The owner was polite but i can see how he could be taken as abrupt. The room was cleanish, but!:
-The smoke alarm cover was hanging
-Walls were marked and a bit grubby
-Aircon dripped water inside the room pretty much on top of the tv
- There were items under the bed that someone had left behind
-We had a trail ants on the bench the second day, not sure what they were after as there was no food left out.

The one thing that we REALLY didnt like was the owner had the room tidied even after we had specifically said no. Alot of our personal items had been moved.

Theres also no cutlery or face washers so come prepared

My credit card was debited 8 months before travel. I cancelled the booking within 2 days of booking for my full refund. I'm still waiting more than 2 weeks later for the "full refund". I wouldn't book this motel.

Family room. Very dated with fixture and fittings hanging together with duct tape. Smelt like a musty two dollar shop. No shampoo etc. no milk. One teabag. Tv didn't work. Towels appeared to be clean- but had a very weird smell.

Room tip: Read reviews!
