This was the only place we could find with vacancy so we were grateful for it but far from impressed. It was tired, stark, a little shady and the "family room" wasn't a good deal. On the pro side, it was very clean and the owners were very nice. The family room we stayed in was freshly remodeled so the... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this motel using Travel Auctions. Anthony gave us a family unit which was very clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was great and the TV worked well. This motel offers other facilities such as a kitchen and laundry. The kitchen is quite large with... More

We stumbled upon this motel after a botched booking by another nearby motel. What a great find. Although it is an older style and quite basic it had everything we needed to make our three day break very enjoyable. The management and staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous. They really went out of their way to accomodate our every... More

OK value for money A bit old and tired but reasonably clean. Lot of noise coming from the car wash next door, despite the high wall separating the properties. Location is convenient, close to the town centre and shopping area.

If your taken to judging a book by it's cover then you'd probably drive past the Downtown Motel but in doing so you'd be doing yourself an injustice. The manager is a likeable guy and made us feel welcome after giving us clear instructions when we phoned in desperation as we couldn't get any accommodation along the Great Ocean Road... More
