I had an unpleasant time staying at the motel. The room I stayed in, the toilet cubicle had cobweb on the ceiling, the bed end sheet (I dont know what you call it) had some sort of blood stain on it, a pubic hair was found on one of the towels, stain marks were on one of the pillows, the mattress bases cover had lot of stains on it, the cup tray had lot of dust and sugar on it, lot of dead flies are inside the pamphlet rack and the gap under the shower door had lot of dirt and hairs came out when I put a little bit of water pressure on it. It was revolting, the worst of all each night was about $137. There were no room service, no one came and tidied the bed each morning and emptied the rubbish bin. On the top of that, the decor is definitely very outdated, it desperately needs a good fresh of paint. Very disappointed experience overall.

We took a family room on our road trip as an overnight stay. The room was very spacious with comfortable beds to sleep 5 people. The parking space was ample in the motel. The bathroom and toilet were clean. Water kettle and Tea/Coffee were also made available. Special thanks to Paul for attending us well. Overall a reasonable stay on the main road. No restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Taking the family on a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide along the Great Ocean Rd, Rippleside was our first stop over before the long drives ahead. The rooms are basic, on a busy road and train line but it’s clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is available and the owner is really friendly

Had a funeral to attend in Queenscliffe decided to stay overnight rather than tackle the drive around the bay to home instead of taking the risk of getting stuck in heavy Friday night traffic. Had crossed on the ferry but becomes expensive if doing a return trip. Being retired couple time is on our hands. We found the staff very friendly and obliging, including "Cookie" Master of Pet Control" very friendly. Not a Motor Inn if you are looking for playground for kids or an onsite pool, but Geelong has some great beaches when it is beach weather. We have stayed in far worse for wear accommodation and much smaller accommodation. We found no problem with the traffic and trains and the a/c was one of the quietest we have struck. Bed was very comfy, bathroom was very good, did not have breakfast onsite. Our rule is on the day we return from being away overnight or longer is to have a Macca's breakfast of hotcakes and hash browns. I would recommend this accommodation to overnight stays even with kids as there is a pack very close by. Stays by travelling workers would also be well catered for, nothing wrong with Rippleside Park Motor Inn,

Very friendly staff, bathrooms are nice and fairly spacious. Ideal for one night stays. Comfortable bed, lots of space to put things on. The walls, though brick, weren't very sound proof and noisy guests could be heard from next door. The facilities are a bit dated but if you're okay with that then it shouldn't be a problem. Value was pretty good, but it's not within reasonable walking distance of the cbd so you'll probably have to drive or take the bus. Would come again.

The unit that I’d booked was spacious with one queen sized bed and 3 single beds. Parking is aplenty here... and it’s very near to a park with walking distance. Design-wise the interior was quite dated but clean nonetheless which was very important for us. Driving distance to Geelong city centre.

Our room was a good size and bed was comfy, sadly shower needs some work,remote was close to useless, curtains were dirty and cobwebs above us when in bed. Service was good though. In a great place, you can hear trains and traffic but not enough to bother you

The staff were friendly, the parking is easy, the rooms were large, clean and comfortable and the price is good. There is some traffic noise early in the morning because the motel is on a busy road. The room feels like a motel from the 1980s or 1990s but it’s not a problem, in fact the larger room sizes from then are a bonus.
