So very disappointing

1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Mar 2022
We've previously stayed at Ringwood Lake Motel/Inn many times for both business and personal travel. Initially allocated room 19, the room was in poor condition, the bath was dirty and the power point in the wall in the bathroom was inoperative and literally hanging off the wall. We requested another room and were relocated to room 10. Once again the power point in the bathroom was inoperative, as was the hair dryer and light fittings were missing. None of the electrical appliances had electrical safety inspection tags attached. There was no rubbish bin provided and some cupboard/wardrobe doors were literally hanging off the hinges, a wall was stained, the fittings were either dirty or simply worn beyond cleaning. Apparently this motel is being used to house disadvantaged persons and now has a reputation for also accommodating drug affected individuals. So disappointing as this used to be one of our favourite motels. At least rooms 19 and 10 need a total renovation!
Date of stay: March 2022
Room Tip: Make sure you inspect the room before paying!

On arrival T was very welcoming. Our room was very spacious, clean and the beds had nice crisp clean linen and the bed was very comfortable. T went out of his way to help us and made our stay very comfortable. Top man T.
The hospital was close by.

Whilst this is an older hotel, it is very clean and the service was excellent. We stayed in a room with a double and single bed and it was very spacious with a decent sized bathroom. Around 30min to Mount Dandenong area and only a few minutes drive to Eastland for shopping/food. We stayed here instead of in the Dandenong Ranges since the prices are so high!!
Only negative was the rooms were not very soundproof and we could hear the TV from the next room. But, it is an older hotel and for the price we really didn't mind this small negative.

I'd previously stayed here for work about 9 yrs ago, wasn't to much different except for the breakfast (we didn't have any but it looked like it was closed), rooms were nice for the price it is in Melbourne. Just one thing for the owner, don't tell someone (when you've corrected) that Mount Gambier is the same place as Adelaide, there's 5 hrs difference!

Older style motel with exceptionally large rooms and bathroom. Close to cafes and restaurants with breakfast available onsite. Great for business trips in the area. About an hour from the airport by car.
