We chose this hotel, mainly for location, mainly for price. We wanted a clean, safe, walking distance to our Venue. The bedspread was immediately removed, and questionable hair was found on the sheets. The sink decided to plug immediately, and there was a slow drip, that I was certain would fill the sink and overflow. The parking garage was simply... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute and wondered what it would be like. It is towards the end of the Douglas road shopping centre but still within easy walking distance of all central attractions. The room was clea, fairly large, had a fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board and was quiet. The one thing I didnt like was... More

Great parking, good location, somewhat clean. I woke up covered in bug bites, don't think it was bed bugs but something got me. Staff were friendly. Bed was comfortable. Good bang for your buck but if you value cleanliness and peace of mind, I'd look elsewhere.

Very BAD HOTEL" Also known as ISLAND TRAVEL INN The sign reads "Walk in Special" which was higher than any on line rate including their own site. I asked them if they would match the lowest rate he replied with a reluctant "yes" then tried to charge me a higher rate. Concerns: The duvets smelt of mildew The balcony was... More

Business office booked this for me and when I arrived staff was quite rude. Location is decent, but building was in poor condition including stains on walls and mucous smears in elevator. When I got into the room there were hairs all over the pilot covers and in the bath tub. Beyond that, the room smelled peculiar and I even... More

I'm surprised that this motel isn't ranked dead last in Victoria, but it is 57th of 58. A terrible place to stay. No toiletries or towels in the room -- and no coffee in the hotel! I can only assume that they're going out of business. If they aren't, then someone should put them out of business. The place was... More

Bathroom dirty, smoke free rooms smell like smoke, paper towel plugging hole in all and all around creepy. Floors not vacuumed, no cutlery old tube tvs would not recommend staying here. I could go on for days but I'm sure you get the point.
