This was the worst place I have ever been to! So bad that not only was it dirty and run down but the company that it kept made me feel very unsafe for me and my son to stay so much so that we ended up paying for another room in town. Despite the empty McDonalds all over the reception... More

No systems in place. Very dubious people appeared to be living in units. Out side just stank of smoke and piles of cig... More

My main concern is that this rates 163 out of 171, which means there are worse ones out there. Hubby booked without checking Trip Advisor. Everything bad that is written is dead on true. The garbage piled up against the walls in the driveway was the first warning sign along with Tom Tom saying it didn't exist :-) If there... More

We checked into this hotel as it was nearby to a wedding we attended. Opening the door to the hotel all we could smell was cigarette smoke. Going into the bathroom their were stubbed out cigarette butts in the sink. Comforting to know our room obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while. I had no shoes on whilst getting ready... More

This "Motor Inn" has one thing going for it. It is not far from the Melbourne International Airport. We were there on the last day of our 3 weeks in Australia. I picked it for the family style apartment and a reasonable price. As soon as we arrived we knew it was a terrible mistake. There was debris piled up... More

This place is so bad it's kind of funny. Bad service, pool was green and surrounded by rubbish, really loud inside room and there is actual live chickens being kept in the carpark area. I would not recommend.

Stayed with family for one night. Motel is very basic looking from the front. Could probably do with a paint job. That said, reception was efficient, rooms were very clean and well appointed in terms of beds, linen etc. Motel had forgotten to place 3rd towel in room but that was soon rectified. Motel is on the busy Sydney Road... More

This is a budget motel, on a drab part of Sydney Rd. It has the appearance of an old fashioned country motel. However our rooms were very clean, with good quality plain furniture. Some intoxicated person made a disturbance on the first night, but that can happen anywhere. I stayed 3 nights, got a very cheap price by booking in... More

we stayed only 1 night, which was enough. room smelled of cigarettes and it just didn't feel like a safe place. it's ok for one night as it is close to the airport but i wouldn't recommend it for longer stays
