Constructed in about 1930, the Guiding Star is the last standing Hotel in Brooklyn.
The Guiding Star Hotel Motel is a complete venue with traditional pub grub food, entertainment, accommodation, a Thirsty Camel Bottle Shop and its own Coffee Shop, Brewed Awakening. It caters for the workmanlike crowd, truck drivers, tradies and travellers on their way to Melbourne seeking affordable, clean and tidy accommodation.
The Guiding Star Hotel was constructed in about 1930, incorporating an earlier building related to the undeveloped village of Brooklyn. Built on a Spanish Mission style, stuccoed, two-storey hotel, with Cordova tiles to a hipped roof and eaves broken by projecting parapets above the two side entries and the main corner entry. The Guiding Star is the last standing Hotel in Brooklyn.
The Guiding Star Hotel Motel is of local historical and architectural significance as a relatively large and elaborate hotel built to serve the arterial traffic of the Geelong Road, and the industrial activities in the Brooklyn area.
