This Motel should be close down .Never book this motel better to sleep on the street.

2/10 Poor

We refused to stay there.
Our son, who lives in Melbourne, observed the motel the day before our arrival and was concerned that we had already paid. His comments on the motel's appearance and general upkeep were most unflattering. When we arrived on the afternoon of Tuesday 13 December my wife refused to accept the accommodation and indicated that, as far as she was concerned we would go elsewhere even if it meant forfeiting what we had paid.. I was in agreement but preferred to try to, at least. recover some of our cost. I indicated to one of the managers?? that we would walk away, no questions asked, if he refunded us half of our payment. He declined the offer, hence my telephone call to you.

Bare electrical wires hanging out of the walls where power point should be, disconnected smoke alarm, graffiti and mould in the bathroom

filthy, hair on outside of pillowcases
This was the worst ever motel experience and I hold just as responsible for even advertising such an appalling place on their site. We did not end up staying, as we could not bring ourselves to stay in such filth. $135 out of pocket and a 1hr drive home was not ideal. All I can say is enter at your own risk, this place should not be allowed to service the public.

6/10 Good

Outside of complex was very untidy. Rubbish lying around etc. No spare pillows.Only 1 chair. Overall only really 2star rating. Plumbing was very noisy.

worst hotel I have stayed at
Positives: easy to find and close to royal show grounds, room appeared clean and bed was comfortable. Negatives: in very unkept condition, insufficient ammenities (no cutlery, just mugs and a plastic spoon), no microwave and power is only available if room key is inserted in a controller which meant the fridge was turned off all day when out, however it did freeze the drinks overnight so they stayed colder longer lol. I felt uneasy staying alone the first night and ended up having a friend come stay with me, when we got up the next morning and walked to our cars we had to be careful not to trip over a drink can with a syringe inserted in it.
