Fantastic service and great rooms

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Apr 2021
Tina and Peter could not have been more enjoyable to deal with. After messing up our time of arrival (forgot about the SA->VIC timezone change), when we called to let them know they were happy to still be available for our check in. Clean rooms that were nice and dark during the night, comfy bed, netflix, and quiet. Could not have asked for more. Highly recommend.

Always awesome staying at the retro. Not far from drag strip. Always a friendly greeting. Great prices. Has a great bbq area to use as well. Rooms are always tidy. Love the small detail of having a windscreen cleaner set up to use after a long drive.

This is a great little motel in Portland. The beds are super comfy! Its a nice 20min stroll to central Portland where you can find some great restaurants and pubs. The motel also has a awesome bbq/common area which we didnt use but looked awesome! Will be sure to stay next time we are in the area!

Returned to the Retro Hotel for a second visit because it is a quiet and well maintained small motel. The rooms are clean and well equipped with all amenities and comfortable bed and chairs. Good value.
