We stayed here to attend the motorcycle expo at the Showgrounds, it was convenient to the Showgrounds. Accomodation was average for the cost, we booked two rooms (2 adults/2 kids per room) when we arrived neither room had the kids on the booking and we had to pay extra than I was quoted. Rooms where clean but very small, I... More

I was going to MotoExpo at Melbourne Showgrounds, for the motorbikes. I needed somewhere close by, with easy transport to and from. The very helpful lady at the Information Centre told me which tram to catch, which stop to get off at and assisted me get a Myki card. I was impressed. The Footscray Motor Inn was very clean and...

originally booked for 3 people then changed the booking to 4. We were put into the double room suite - total cost $200 from originally $150. Two queen beds, one in a bedroom off the main room which you walked through into the bathroom. The door had been removed so the only heating/cooling could circulate. The second television did not...

I stayed at Footscray Motor Inn for one night mid-week on business. I had chosen the motel for its close proximity to the school I needed to go to the next day for work. Upon arrival I was greeted by one of the motel's friendly staff and check in was easy. I even received a room upgrade to one of... More

Came here in 2012 for Equitana. Was within 30mins walk of showground. Staff are friendly and helpful. Their local knowledge of public transportation and things to do/see is fantastic. Their little restaurant does great meals. The rooms were well presented and the bed very comfortable. Was so happy we came back for Equitana 2014 and would come back again.

I booked this motel as it was close to the Western hospital. After long days the clean and comfortable room was ideal. The staff were marvellous and the food yummy. I may not have the need to stay here again But I would definitely recommend it to others

We rented a car in Adelaide to drive to Sydney via Melbourne, and decided to stay somewhere in the suburbs with good parking and transport connections. The Footscray Motor Inn could not have worked better. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room large and well-equipped, and there were dozens of ethnic restaurants within easy reach.
