Stayed at this location for two nights. The room was large and well appointed. I am not a fan of the beds without box springs, so I found the bed a bit uncomfortable. But this setup is standard in Australia, so I'm used to it. The property was well light and near shopping, services, transport and CBD. The staff was... More

My son and I spent 4 nights at Footscray Motor Inn in one of their executive twin spa suites. The hotel is centrally located, wishing easy walking distance to the abundant selections of restaurants in Footscray. I have driven past this hotel many times and thought it would be 'just another motel', how wrong I was. The rooms are clean,... More

Very clean motel, bit disappointed as the restaurant doesn't open at the weekends, so we had to order take away. No toaster for breakfast, can order breakfast to room. Central to the flemington race course and melbourne show grounds. Quiet location, will stay there again, rates reasonable,

Our stay here was very enjoyable. The beds were comfortable with not a lot of noise, and free onsite parking. The venue had a small restaurant with an adequate breakfast, or you could have a hot meal as well for a little extra. The restaurant only seats about 20 so it pays to reserve a table for the evening meal.... More

We had stayed at the Footscray Motor Inn about 18 months ago where we received the most friendly service we have ever received at any motel / hotel. Stayed there again last week for 3 nights to visit family, and the excellent service remains unchanged. Friendly, caring and always willing to help. We stayed in a recently updated room with...

Had a very enjoyable stay with quiet, clean & comfortable rooms. Not the cheapest but the friendly staff and the excellent on site restaurant all added up to a good choice. It's not the newest but overall it is a convenient location and they do a good job looking after the guests !!
