I stayed here a few months ago a few times for work, and can not fault the place. Rooms were clean and well presented. But the staff here were fantastic, accommodated my every request, will definitely stay here again when passing through for work.

Nice stay, very clean room, excellent service! The woman at the reception is so sweet, even gave me a ride to the station. Help with everything, friendly, close to stores, restaurants and fast food restaurants.

We were attending a wedding in Traralgon and stayed at the City Gardens Motel. There was a group of us from the wedding and we all found it comfortable. A clean, quite, and reasonably priced Motel. Breakfasts great, friendly staff. A good stop over on way to Melbourne.

We travel to Traralgon to catch up with friends and always stay at City Gardens. It is extremely clean and comfortable and the hosts are very helpful and friendly. They are happy to assist wherever they can and breakfasts are hearty and enjoyable.
