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 stayed one night and found it to be a well refurbished old hotel room. We were given a room at the back of the complex (room 39) which meant no traffic noise. The spilt system air con had to be on all night to keep the room warm (we were there in the heart of winter). The room was... 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 !!

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.
