Room was quiet with an ocean view. Room was clean and comfortable but small and needed updating.

Next to the ocean
The location is great- right across from the ocean. You can walk to the ocean from the motel. The location is about 5km from Apollo Bay. There is a bus that runs from lorne that can drop you off closer to the motel. I took the bus to apollo bay and then walked back - which took about 1.5 hrs along the sea at low tide. The manager is super friendly, and helpful. The place is really clean, albeit a bit outdated.

Simplicity in the Otway area
Skenes Creek Motel is a simple modest place to stay. The price is fair, it is a bit old but the manager works very hard to make sure it is clean and comfortable. A good place for a couple of nights when you explore the area.
