My partner and I stayed here last night. The owner was very welcoming and the room was clean and warm, close to everything. Would stay here again. Not sure why others expect a palace for budget accommodation...

Room was grubby shower cold broken smoke alarm hanging from the roof. . Can't recommend. Save your money and stay elsewhere not even a proper heater in the room I don't know how this motel is even allowed to operate. Only positive is we were in the back room so it was quiet

Where to start......no heating, dirty, smells like 3 day old food, shower broken, noisy fridge, COLD. Lets move on the manager.....rude and slow. They take your personal information (ID, credit card) and do not disclose how long they keep it on file. Sadly I was desperate for a room and did not have time to read the other reviews. I...

We were absolutely disgusted at this place. After waiting over half an hour to check in while the owner cancelled an online booking we were shocked when we finally entered our room. It was very very old and extremely dirty. Shower was filthy and had mud on the floor. Two old pieces of soap left in shower. Furniture taped together...

Worse place ever. Period. Heaps of exclamtionsmarks. Far to expensive... Like: 130$ for a room just two steps higher than a park bench. Best thing about it is to leave again. Noisy surroundings, noisy tennants, fridge with a second hand jet engine going all night and a distinct feeling of antique dirt

Do not stay here! You will be more comfortable under a tree or in the boot of a parked car. The Colonial Lodge is NOT a motel, it is a flea-pit. The owner is exceptionally rude. The rooms are fitted with ancient, broken furniture that has been repaired with electrical tape. The staff will invade your privacy. Nothing functions as...

I dont care.. I charge, you not like..CANCEL".."You not happy, CANCEL..". This guy was absolutely rude...

Stayed two nights for a workshop, was cheap and you get what you pay for. Room was tidy and quiet, beds were comfortable and linen clean. Lack of wi-fi in this day and age is a bit of a downer but otherwise, an ok stay.

This is exactly as it looks, cheap and nasty. It was dirty, smelly and just horrible. We were desperate for a room and this was one of last available in Geelong on a busy weekend and now know why it was not booked. We now wish we hadn't bothered. The owner upon checking in was rude and felt he needed...

No matter how desperate you are. I stayed here when I was. The owner demanded I pay a key deposit of $10 which he never refunded. When I complained he insisted he had paid me at the same time as insisting he didn't have to refund it unless I came back to the hotel. Other guests spat and smoked outside...
