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

stayed here when i was in town for a wedding, there would have been nothing wrong with the place if it was $30 cheaper, but it was pretty expensive for nothing special. That said i never stay in hotel in Australia so this could have been well priced... i don't know, the price seemed a bit steep for the location

Dear Sir. We are sorry you were not complimentary of the room allocated. Microwave ovens are only available in our Serviced Apartment section, not the Motel rooms. Most international tourists believe Melbourne is over priced which is unfortunate. Best wishes. More
