I just stayed for the night and it is a very quiet motel to stay not far from the main street and in walking distance to the water. The rooms are clean and the continental breakfast was included in my room rate. The bed was very comfortable. I would recommend this motel if you are looking at a less expensive...

Quite a good motel and had all the basics and a good shower. Quite centraly located and the staff were friendly. The rooms were large and had good tv. Would I stay here again? I would have no issue staying here again.

Stayed overnight with two kids aged 4 & 5. Terrific location, nicely appointed rooms and very helpful and friendly reception (including organising tickets to main attractions). The simple but ample brekkie satisfied us all. Highly recommend.

We stayed for a night while exploring Philip Island. Clean and decent motel with lots of space. Staff are friendly and we purchase the 3 nature parks tickets at the reception of the motel which makes it easy as we do not have to join the long queue to get our tickets at the peguin parade plc. Breakfast was simple,...

Very well presented and clean rooms. Convenient to shops and family activities. No issues even if we arrived late at night. The room was warm and all kitted up which made us all feel at home when we arrived from a cold night. Plenty of space for a family of four.

We stayed a night at the Tropicana in an upgraded spa room. The rooms, whilst a little dated are spotlessly clean, with all amenities available. Our room was large with lots of storage and bench space. Lovely pool, bbq area surrounded by a pretty garden. Great location close to shops, beaches and restaurants. Very pleasant stay
