We had a function at Essendon airport and chose the place with the better reviews in the area. It is an older style motel and the room layout is unusual. It would have been quite large if the additional single bed had been removed, but it certainly wasn't claustrophobic. The bathroom was clean - very important to me. Breakfast room... More

This is an old motel, so don't expect the latest mod-cons, but for the price it's pretty good value. The rooms are old and need updating, but they are clean. The beds aren't that comfortable, and like most hotels of this era, the whole place could use a refurbishment. But we felt secure and the hotel is only a short... More

We stayed four days in a self-contained apartment above reception. Sure it was not new, but it has been recently recarpeted and was clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and despite being along the road front, there was no appreciable noise. 2 minutes stroll to the tram stop, 5 to the local shops. Good value... More

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 It was very small, very very noisy, extremely outdated and well what can I say about the staff, hmmm not helpful or welcoming (not what people would expect from hosts in this industry).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

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
