Very clean and comfortable. Well appointed rooms and family friendly. Staff were extremely helpful, it is a very nice change to have breakfast making facilities in your room without the compulsory eating in the dining room.

Because of the underground parking set up, it was a pleasant surprise after leaving the lift, on the first floor, to see a beautifully paved, landscaped courtyard, with BBQ, good quality outdoor furniture, and a well maintained swimming pool. It was a hot afternoon and a welcome surprise to have those facilities outside the unit rather than a hot and noisy car-park.

The owners were welcoming and pleasant, the room spacious, large, well-kept, with quite a large modern bathroom.

Breakfast was included in the tariff, along with the morning newspaper. It was so nice to eat this outside the unit, in the sunshine, at our own little table and chairs, overlooking the pool.

Visit Bendigo often and will certainly return.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner suite.

The motel is two storey: downstairs car parking, first floor rooms and communal spaces. Very clean, large rooms. Nice outdoor area to eat & socialize. All appliances worked, fee wifi, good speeds. Excellent value

The Best Western Crystal Inn is my motel of choice when staying in Bendigo on business or for pleasure. Its rates are excellent value given the high quality of the rooms. I have stayed here many times over the last 8 years and the modern style, quality and cleanliness of the rooms has been consistently maintained over the years. Rooms are quite spacious and the bathrooms are of a very high standard with quality fittings throughout. The motel's location is on the edge of Bendigo township, a 3 or 4 kilometer drive from the centre of town. Free undercover carparking is provided with easy access to all rooms via one flight of stairs, or elevator if you prefer. A continental breakfast will be delivered to your room the night before for about $10. On site restaurant / dining facility is not available but meals can be ordered and delivered to your room. As this is a motor hotel, most people do arrive by car and it is an easy drive to the numerous cafes and restaurants that Bendigo has to offer. The rooms are also quiet and I have never found traffic noise to be an issue. I highly recommend this motel.

The Crystal Inn is located on the McIvor Highway on the outskirts of Bendigo. The rooms are well appointed and the tariff is family friendly. As is my way, I got the best price from wotif and then contacted the motel....a good price was organised for a 4 night stay. The staff were friendly and the rooms cleaned each day. The TV has Austar but ABC reception is very poor. With a young child accompanying it meant that there was little to amuse them on the box. The motel does not have a restaurant but the All Seasons Resort just 400m down the road provides excellent meals at an affordable price. Otherwise, downtown Bendigo (3-4 kms) is the alternative. A pool is located in a courtyard in front of the rooms on the first level. BBQ facilities are available. An excellent setting for drinks in summer. Car parking underneath and a lift to access the rooms. Nice!!

Room Tip: Rooms near stairs could be noisy if a large number of guests are occupying the motel

Stayed one night at the Crystal Inn, the motel was well out of the town so getting a decent evening meal was a little difficult. The room was very large with a spacious queen bed, the electric blanket was a nice addition. Slept very well the bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. Reception was busy on arrival but a quick call resulted in additional staff to help with check in. Reception staff need to make sure they are up to date on the local attractions and can answer simple questions. This would be my only negative coment. We would recommend ths Motel

Stayed overnight for business.
As mentioned by other posters , this property is a fair distance from Bendigo central , nothing of interest close by .
It suited me for an overnight stop
It was pleasant to have the car parking underneath and to access the room in a lift .
Pleasant , helpful reception staff.
The rate included a complimentary continental breakfast delivered the evening before , complete with a jug of real milk.
The room service dinner menu appeared limited and overpriced , the only place I could see to eat at night was the large All Seasons property down the road. If you were wanting a bit more lights / action , this would be the one to choose.
The Crystal Inn would be a pleasant place to stay in Summer , where you could enjoy a pre dinner drink , relax in the courtyard area surrounding the rooms , impressed with the quality outdoor furniture. One doesn't find areas like this in motels generally.
The room was clean , comfortably furnished , good lighting , spacious bathroom and fluffy towels.
Good value for the money charged , would revisit for a business stay.
