When staying in Ballarat, this is my first choice for a place to stay. It is a little outdated and basic, however for $80ish a night you can't complain.

Recently stayed at the Eureka Lodge rooms were dated... Clean but towels were worn with dangling threads. Needs an overhaul. Otherwise it was clean. TV was too small for all to see. Heating was ok. Great location.

This is an older style motel and is rather dated nowdays. However, the price was excellent as compared to others and it still ticked all the important boxes. The room was a good size, clean and had everything that was needed. The bed was comfortable and the shower huge with plenty of hot water. It is in a quiet area...

I stayed here for one night just for a stopover with my daughters and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are clean and are spacious enough as is the bathroom.

Our family stayed at this motel last week in room 9. The room was hot and the air conditioner didn't work properly, so we all had a terrible sleep!. On the positive side beds were comfortable and the motel is located in a quiet area.
