    The couple, who I presume own it, were superb. Just the right level of friendlyness and chattiness, without being intrusive, just brilliant. Room was clean and tidy, with good free Wifi access which was a great bonus. Location is nice and near the city centre, which leads onto a cracking beach area.

    The motor inn is just of the main road into Geelong, which sometimes made leaving the location difficult.

    Location and price was reasonable for my 'thankfully' short stay.

    1: No control of smokers. It is simply not good enough to proclaim a room as 'Non Smoking' and then provide! Smokers Seats/Tins for Butts, right outside each room's entry door. Suffice to state the tobacco smells waft in! I detected cigarette smoke odour from the Lounge Cushions, sit down and cop a further waft of smoke odour. 2: PARKING, it looked OK, except there is no control over where people park. More signage might assist to ensure a client's parking spot is retained exclusively for their use. 3. ELECTRICALS: Loose switch plates and a broken switch toggle for control of the Ensuite Exhaust Fan suggested to me a lack of Electrical Maintenance. 4: THE LITTLE THINGS: Witnessing rubbish bags attached to walls with paper clips did not give the impression of good house management.

    The friendly service the staff were outstanding nothing was too much trouble.

    Being on a main road it is a little noisy but nothing unbearable. What really spoilt the whole experience was the toaster and the kettle were situated in the BATHROOM which made making toast and coffee a little gross.

    The wonderful welcoming feeling from staff. We were so thankful that they were able to store our bags prior to check in and after we checked out. This made things so much easier for our group. They were so friendly and so helpful. Would have no hesitation to recommend this Motor Inn.

    None what so ever

    Very handy location for our purposes - namely events at The Arena which is very close by, and also easily accessible to the cafes, etc along the seafront.

    No complaints at all.

    It was clean

    You get what you pay for I guess but after travelling weeks, staying in similar lodgings, it would be the worst....... worst beds worst pillows worst ambient noise (beside a motorway and railway overbridge)

    Very helpful staff. Convenient location. Good price.

    I'd like to see recycle bins available for customers.

    Access to and from Melbourne and close to mckeller centre nursing home for visitors.

    Found access and directions to Rippleside a little confusing on the first visit. But after first time, will be easier.
