We arrived to find that only one room had been reserved instead of the 2 we requested when we rang to book. The staff were helpful, except for the man, who pointed his finger at me and said it was my fault. After half hour or so they found us the other room. The rooms were upstairs so we had... More

The good: location, free wifi, breakfast supplies, kitchenette, good mattress, free parking The bad: rickety bunk beds, scratchy blankets, threadbare sheets The ugly: the decor! Very dated/faded/worn and repairs needed (but everything was clean) Overall: I can't believe I'm saying this but I would actually stay here again - to get breakfast (minimalist admittedly), parking, a spacious self-contained family room,...

Just reached here in Melbourne. Shocked beyond believe, everything is so old and dirty. I stayed in the corner room, no window and air circulation. Very stuffy. We booked for 5 nights, so we request to change the room. Sadly, it's Australian Open, everywhere is booked out. We have to wait another 2 nights to swap the room. We won't... More

A cheap and welcoming motel. Very handy to the Royal Melbourne Hospital which is why we stayed there. The office staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay there again. Complimentary continental breakfast was excellent and much appreciated.

My travelling mate and I had a great time in Melbourne for the three days and 2 nights we stayed. It all started when we arrive at the Arden. Facilities were excellent and the tarriff excellent. Car parking a major concern in Mlb motels was abundant.Staff were efficient and polite. Very quiet and relaxed.

What a fantastic location for a motel, 5 minutes to trams and close to the city, but that's where the pleasantries end. Our bed had blankets covered in cigarette burn holes and my brother and his fiancée were welcomed with dirty sheets on their bed. We spoke to management and they were quick to replace the sheets. Our blankets remained... More

My partner and I stayed here on our first interstate trip together. He had previously stayed here with his family and recommended it due to it's fantastic value for money! He wasn't wrong. I was impressed by the fact that our mini-bar always had bread, spreads and drinks for a great continental breakfast included in our price. We had a... More

This is the third time i have stayed here. we loved the free breakfast left in the room even with fresh milk. not many motels do that now. Good rates too. The rooms are ok, just didn`t like the shower curtain.
