Clean good sized rooms equipped with tv, fridge, kettle and toaster. Tea, coffee and milk supplies in room are plentiful and refreshed daily. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The only down side was the very poor wifi connection, which would cut out very frequently, or not be available at all.

I booked this place last minute because I didn't have many other options. Was a bit disappointed with the location, it still cost about $60 return with a cab to the airport. There are no lifts in the property, and you hve to carry your own suitcase up the stairs. I wouldn't recommend this place to seniors or disabled. I... More

I sourced city accommodation but found it too expensive. This hotel was 15 min from the Airport and CBD. It was well within my budget. The location allowed me to fullfill my plans to attend events at Melbourne Show Grounds, Flemington Race Course and MCG. My wife and I found the room clean and very comfortable. Staff could not be...

Would not stay here again! Yes it was cheap and convenient but that is all this place has going for it. Upon opening the door, an overwhelming smell of stale air and mothballs hit us in the face. The bed wasn't made properly (the bed spread sat on top of the doona) the bathroom smelt stale and mouldy. The shower... More

Stayed in a unit for a week. Not impressed, poorly laid out have to walk downstairs in middle of night if you need to use the bathroom!! Overpriced for what you get, on a very busy road so noise is always an issue. Staff are very efficious rather than being friendly and welcoming, it's like this is it if you... More

Dear Ron. I'm sorry your experience with us was not up to expectation. Records do not indicate that a complaint was lodged at Front Office. If guests usually express dissatisfaction with a room, an alternative is offered subject to availability. We hope you will try us again. More

I stayed at this Motel with my daughter to attend a Funeral. We were due to arrive at around 7:30pm Sunday night, and received a phone call from the Manager to remind us that the Reception closed at 9pm. I thought this quite efficient and appreciated the call. The room was a twin and quite small, however very very comfortable.... More

It served the purpose. Close to Airport for an early morning start. Would have liked a ground floor unit as I am "a certain age" and climbing steep stairs with luggage and up and down to gather forgotten items from car is not my idea of a restful time!

Booking was easy to do and no dramas on arrival. The front-of-house staff are efficient and obliging. Nothing seems to be a trouble for them. While the outward appearance seems dated, the rooms are clean, comfortable and the re-furbishment has been tastefully carried out. There is the odd, small sign that the place is rather old but, on the whole,... More

This hotel is situated on very busy street with few convenient services for walkers nearby. The rooms were small, dated but clean and quiet (given the street noise!) The hotel restaurant provided varied excellent meals with great service and daily specials. For a one night stay between flights, it worked for us but we would not use it as base... More
