“Would stay gain.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Decided to spend a night in Geelong so I could watch the Cats play ( am a member) .
Wanted a motel not far from the ground and found the Parkside Motel. It is a 10/15 minute walk to Kardinia Park.
Bed very comfortable, room clean,towels soft,water hot, jug worked and heating very good.
The lift worked very slowly but it worked.
Check in/ check out was very easy.
Will definetly stay there again.

On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable, and I slept very soundly. The view to the park was attractive. Overall, the room was comfortable for one person. The charge was reasonable.
On the minus side, the bathroom sink was very awkwardly placed. The lift was not clean. The corridor was not clean, and the door to the room did not close properly.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the second floor, facing the park.

This motel sums up Geelong. Nothing special, a bit gruff and the bare minimum. Geelong is quite an industrial town with not much character. The majority of people we saw staying at the motel was tradesman etc. The motel is not bad, it does the job but won't wow you. I was however very nervous about parking my car in the dingy underground car park (i would not yhave felt safe as a single woman staying here). Thought it very strange that they put us in a room overlooking someones back garden and clothes line when they had rooms on the other side all overlooking the park which were all empty (i asked one of the cleaners). If they were full then this would not have been a problem, but why give us a god awful view when there are much better rooms on offer.

Room Tip: Tip : If you stay at the Parkside, make sure you get a room on the 'parkside' or you will be...

We stayed in a family room (36) with 2 young children and found it neat, clean and convenient for an overnight stay. Older style motel but with freshish paintwork. Very small bathroom but the room itself was quite spacious with couch, table/chairs, free wifi (although we didn't test it) and foxtel. McDonalds and shopping centre opposite. It also had plates and cutlery for some self catering if you wanted to. All up a sound hotel and would stay again on a short visit to Geelong.

Room Tip: 36 was a family room with view over parkland.

Happily suprised, booked 1 night as a stop over for the great ocean road and chose to returne the following night.
Room were basic but had everything we needed foxtel, free internet, free parking a comfy bed and best of all great shower pressure after a long day traveling to top the day off.
Reception bent over backwards to help us out, lots of food and beverage options in walking distance and kmart that doesnt close...bonus for me as I broke my shoe!!
very convienent location and to shops, food, and across the park I was able to go for a morning jog around the river.
Will returne again if we are ever back in the area, thanks for making our stay a good one.
Oh and great value $$$$

Room Tip: We booked a parkside view room which I think is the best view option with alot of natural light ,the...

Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

When I chose this it looked good online. When we saw the location we were worried, right near a busy shopping centre and it looked rough. A gang of lads were hanging around their car under the motel drinking (we saw them on both nights we were staying) not a good 1st impression. However the welcome at check in was warm, and the room was clean. The lift smelled musty and was v slow and a bit of a worry. We didn't like to park under the motel due to the drinking youths but the car was ok parked in the other carpark. Location was ok for the river but you'd need transport to get to the waterfront which is the nicest bit of Geelong. We probably wouldn't stay there again, it was ok but I was a bit disappointed overall.
