This hotel is located near The Esplanade with easy access to super market and eating places. There are individual parking lot in front of each room. Quite convenient and nicely planned.

Stayed there for 2 nights with my family and the kids enjoyed the stay very much.

Highly recommended!!

Stayed at the Tropicana Motor Inn whilst attending the Moto GP on Phillip Island. When arriving, we were welcomed and showed to our motel room. Rooms are very large and have everything you would need for your visit, even down to a little table and chair outside the front door.
Walls are not overly thick so you can hear the occassional noise from your neighbours but to be honest, this was not too much of a hassle. Even when every room was booked out and the motel was very busy.
Visited the restaurant on two occassions, one night quite late after attending the penguin parade. Even though the chef was nearing home time, he still cooked for us with a smile! Owner served our drinks and was very friendly as were the other residents. Although not newly decorated, this added to the ambience of the place.
Ideally situated in Cowes within walking distance to the shops and restaurants etc. Would rebook should we ever attend the Phillip Island Moto GP again....although we've been warned this place gets booked out quick!!

Drove down to Philip Island like everyone for the penguin parade, after explore of cowes went for the Tropicana Motor Inn. Short walk to the town and easy to get to the main road. Location was on a quiet side road. Room was clean and spacious, pleantly of parking and a small pool, though not heated. Overall excellent find.

Went to Phillip Island to see the famous penguin parade. However, by the time the penguin parade ends, there is no bus back to Melbourne. So had to stay a night somewhere on Phillip Island. Through searching on Google Maps, closed on this one.

Value/Cleanliness/Rooms: Very clean room with a television that has access to a lot of channels. There is a couch in the room and a fridge. The room has this very neat food tray. So if you are sleeping and have ordered breakfast or food and you don't answer, from the outside, they just slide the food in through the tray that leads to an enclosed/covered cabinet. Very unique. I went for the deluxe spa room that has a spa in the bathroom. Beds have electric blankets to warm the bed before you sleep. Overall, a well thought of room and very functional! And I got this for AUD $99 special which is a great price.

Location: I needed a place to stay right next to the bus terminal and this was like 200metres away while at the same time being situated in a quiet neighbourhood. Perfect!

Hotel also has a small cozy swimming pool. Breakfast is very expensive though. Just walk over to Thompson Avenue around 1 km down for a range of eateries. No free internet (in fact very expensive internet).

It's also a swell little place if you stay around Melborune and want a weekend getaway.

We loved this place and ended up returning here after being unhappy with other accommodation we had booked elsewhere on Phillip island. Brekkie was excellent and the owners were great to deal with.
