Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Again we stayed at the corio bay hotel with my grandma. At 67 years she is a bit fussy about where she stays and can be quite tricky. The new guy could not have been more pleasant and accommodating.
He even gave her a little peck on the cheek as we were leaving. Great hotel fantastic staff!

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with friends

I saw the reviews and decided to stay here because of them. I am SO glad I did. The staff are EXCELLENT. friendly and happy to help. The room was clean and the bathroom was too. I stayed in one of the back rooms, and although I did hear the odd vehicle, it was not loud enough to annoy. I found the hotel easy to access from the major road. Plenty of space to park - even for large vehicles. Having the free continental-style breakfast suited me as I don't like to have a fully cooked meal at the beginning of the day. I will certainly stay again.

for the price it is great .the rooms are very clean and basic but very comfy. the breakfast is also basic but free . good family value.i would suggest to get a lower room at the back of the hotel so you don't get traffic noise

Room Tip: get a lower level room then you don't get traffic noise

It is worth of money to stay here.. Cheap, clean and comfortable. Free Wi-Fi, free breakfast and free parking. Friendly staff with good service. The room is damn clean, with TV, clean bathroom etc. You will not expected to get such deal. Good for family, couple and even backpacker like us.
I will suddenly stay here again if I come back to Melbourne again. easy access to Geelong and Ocean Road.

Room Tip: Always check the comment in trip advisor.

It certainly isn't The Ritz, but for $75 a night including breakfast it does the job.
Friendly service, great price and ample breakfast mean that you can overlook the tired bathroom and yesteryear decor.
My room was near the back; the motel's on the main highway but I wasn't disturbed by road noise.
The 4-star rating is a reflection of the value for money.
I'll be back.

Room Tip: Try for one near the back.

My family stayed in room 19 at Corio Bay Motel we asked about the $75.00 and $85.00 deal sign out the front of the motel and the young lady at reception informed me that price was only for 1 Queen Bed, so not suitable for my family, so that was fine. We went to our room, to find it was exactly the same as the photo advertised on wotif, although basic it was clean and comfortable, not 5 star quality, but you get what you pay for. + a continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for downstairs.
