We chose this motel for a weekend break in Melbourne, and we're so glad we did! It's very close to the city - only a short walk and a ten minute tram ride away. William on the desk is very polite and helpful, and the room met all our expectations. Ladies, the shower is FANTASTIC! Great water pressure and plenty... More

My wife and I stayed here with a group fo friends who were all going to a Seventieth. Although this an older Motel the rooms were clean and quiet. I expected less as the price was very reasonable but was pleasently surprised. They even supplied breakfast of juice, cerial, toast and raisin toast. I was not overly impressed with the... More

Have stayed here a few times, they are so helpful..Love the big continental breakfast they have..I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Melbourne..They always have fitted me in on very short notice, I can not speak highly enough of the Arden..

This is a no frills type accommodation - great location - close to everything in Melbourne I have stayed here a number of times - breakfast is usually included and you make it yourself so almost self contained - rooms often have a full bath if you aren't to snobbish about looks this is a nice place to stay

We stayed here for one night and chose the place on price and location. The room was adequate but very out-dated. We slept with the window open all night as we had a chemical smell (probably carpet cleaner).

as a family of 4, the accommodation was comfortable, but rather dated....could do with a revamp. not advisable to take a big 4wd vehicle as parking onsite is very very tight (onsite parking). We had enough problems in our Kia carnival. 2 pubs within walking distance. All in all, comfortable and cheap place to stay, not far out of the... More

I read some of the reviews before we booked which was a bit off putting, but we decided to see for ourselves as it was within a budget we wanted to keep to. And who ever posted some of the negative reviews below need to realise what they paid, they did not pay and should not expect the modern standards... More

Great motel in Melbourne, not far from public transport & the city Centre. The accommodation was really good. The staff were really helpful & kind, gave us maps of the area. I would recommend that place again.. ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) 9/10 for good service...

Having driven passed this place for nearly 20 years, I had never given it a second thought. But traffic has driven me to pursue being a city dweller for the time being. As purchasing a property in this city is an impossible dream only accessible to the foreign invader, rental apartments are now the only choice. Even though it is... More
