Enjoyed 3 nights in this good sized motel room. Don't be put off by the address on the main highway. The ground floor room we booked had shutters at the window, which certainly diffused any traffic noise, and made room much darker. Breakfast was cereals and fresh milk, fresh bread to toast. Coffee and tea and biscuits in room. Enjoyed...

Situated on the main road going into town from Melbourne but had a good nights sleep due to comfortable bed and dark room due to shutters that also cut out noise. Great for a one night stay when passing through town.

From the clean fresh linen to the sparkling room - all good. Being close to the highway the outside shutters muffled the traffic noise, excellent addition! Would certainly recommend this Budget Motel.

I stayed at Connells Motel for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of the room and the closeness to the main town. It is on the Highway but I didn't even notice the road noise which was a bonus. The proprietors are very friendly as well as being very informative. I will definitely choose to stay here on any...

Need to wait a little bit for the check in as the desk is not engaged always the stay was nice and clean. I would be your guest again if I can go there. There's no breakfast but McD is not far away...

Lone female traveller, felt safe. Very clean. Friendly staff. Next to highway but noise didn't bother me, shutters helps to cut down noise. A microwave would have been nice, would use again Under 5 mins to drive to town

We stayed here in a family room on our way through from the Hunter Valley to Melbourne and were pleasantly surprised. Not flash but nice and neat, tidy and clean. No complaints apart from the family room being upstairs but that's no biggie.

A free light breakfast was included in room rate. Optional cooked meals are value. My room was adequate for two and I stayed two nights. Road noise is minimised by the fitting of roller shutter (electric) over main windows a great idea. Road noise can be heard but it didn't effect a nights sleep. Linen is good and bedding just...

Staff very friendly. Room clean, all we needed and a comfortable place to sleep. Will stay there again. Close to surrounding places to see and visit and very good places to eat from close by. Loved the breakfast.
