We stayed here overnight and I can only say that this is the worst accommodation we have stayed in for quite some time. It was very small, very very noisy, extremely outdated and well what can I say about the staff, hmmm not helpful or welcoming (not what people would expect from hosts in this industry). We were glad to... More

This motel is situated close to Melbourne airport and is well situated to local restaurants both fast food and fine dinning and within easy walking distance. Staff are friendly and most helpful. Rooms are well appointed although a little on the small side. Only thing I disliked was the soap and shampoo dispenser in the bathroom. I prefer the individual... More

We stayed at the Alexander Motor Inn on Christmas Eve and Christmas Night. We were pleasantly surprised and appreciative that a cooked breakfast was available on Christmas morning. Staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable.

It was on the right side of Melbourne for where we were going and had free parking. The room was clean and had all the basic stuff you would expect. We were on the road side so could hear the traffic but it was not really noisy. Has free wifi but you need to ask for it and our room... More

My wife and I recently went to see Les Miserables in Melbourne. To stay in the city was going to cost us over $400 for a room. We were able to stay at the Mt Alexander Rd Best Western for $117. This was great value. We were only 10 minutes from the theatre and car parking opposite the theatre cost... More

Stayed at this establishment this week. The important thing for us was a good sleep, and this was achieved with very little fuss. Check in was easy, staff member/ manager cheerful and helpful. Room was a good size, clean and comfortable, air con available, The shower was fantastic, water hot, and strong pressure. Bed comfortable, and room reasonably quiet, especially... More

Stayed with wifey and our 15yo son, room was pretty squashy but had all you need with nothing fancy. Clean room & comfy bed, close to tram stop. Wouldn't stay there for extended periods, but as a one nighter all good

My family stayed here for 6 nights whilst on holiday in July. The alexander motel was the only place that could give us those 6 consecutive nights at last minute as our previous accommodation fell through. We had a room above the restaurant, and had no problems, the Saturday night was a little noisy until 11pm, however that didn't bother... More

We stayed in apartment12. While the room looked clean and the furniture was newish, the place had a musty closed up smell. Then when you looked closer there was dirt all around; e.g. A jelly bean on the floor in the bath room, socks from previous visitors in the dryer and washing machine, they didn't even match! After our first... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. Staff don't seem to communicate very well with each other and I was called the day of my stay to question pricing and the fact that the booking was taken wrong. Not my problem. It was noisy both nights with the 2nd night being the worse with other guests arguing from 11pm until about... More
