Review of Mariner Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Apr 2022
The Motel was nice and quiet, with quite large rooms! Bathroom was spacious and good water pressure. Rooms were clean and staff were lovely. Perfect to stop at on the way to or from Great Ocean Road. Thanks so much for having us!

Very good customer service and nice to enter a room that was thoroughly clean and comfortable for my one night stay in Portland. Very close to amenities. Was able to walk to restaurants and shops. Nice and quiet room.

Started with Reception. Friendly and courteous. The room had everything we wanted. It was clean and well maintained. Location was perfect too. Not in the busy end of town but close enough for a short stroll to the shops. Car spaces were nice and wide so no risk of other car doors hitting our car. If I have the chance to go to Portland again, this will be my Motel of choice.

The manager was friendly and room was spotless. Air con worked perfectly and the shower pressure amazing! One feature I appreciated was the car parking out front of every room was double width. Great not having to worry about someone banging a door into one of your panels!

Well located and great value for money. Another unexpected bonus was that the tv has Netflix and Stan etc already installed.

I wasn’t surprised when the manager told me they were fully booked out even though it was a mid week night.

Thoroughly recommend the Mariner Motel.

We had a lovely two night stay an older style motel but a pleasant surprise upon entering our fully renovated room with a beautiful large bathroom and walk in shower, the room had plenty of space and two very comfy tub chairs with footstools, crockery, cutlery, toaster, microwave and a beautiful garden area to sit and relax while cooking a bbq. Very clean and close to shops and cafes and 1 block back from beach. Highly recommend.
