Close to Lygon St, Melbourne Museum and the Skyline airport transfer will drop nearby. Consistently good and great value - half the price of other hotels. Whether staying for business or holiday convenient to tram. I stayed Grand Final weekend and had an easy walk through the parks to the MCG. No spectacular views from the rooms but great base... More

I enjoyed my overall stay the room was nice and clean. Bed was comfortable. Reception staff were good but the wait staff in the morning were an absolute disgrace! I made a formal complaint and would have liked to be contacted as requested but two weeks on I have heard nothing. So I thought I'd let people know not to... More

This hotel stinks of marijuana and has no biscuits (Is this because everyone on the munchies is eating all the biscuits?!). It smells rank. Don't stay here. On the only positive, there is a bible in the side drawer, which is useful as a dinner tray in an emergency.

The Internet Wifi connection did not work and as a result I had to go outside at 8am the next morning in search of a WiFi connection to participate in an Internet conference. The very purpose of me checking into a hotel room to attend the Internet based conference in peace and quiet was defeated. My friend and I tried... More

Good hotel for business or pleasure if in Carlton, comfy room, good service, parking on site. Staff were helpful and the express checkout meant no queuing in the morning. 11am checkout a bonus and close to Lygon street for great food.

We bought our stay through Expedia and got a great deal!! We checked in, the girl on the counter did not have a warming personality, but that did not effect my stay. I was there for a lovely night out and was very happy to be there. The car park is indeed very squishy (see previous comments) but provided what... More

The hotel is located just behind Lygon street which means that all your culinary needs are just a short stroll away. It is also a short cab ride into the city ($10-15 AUD, depending on traffic conditions of course) so it is a viable solution for a cheaper city alternative. The rooms are pretty small, however, they are clean and... More

Great location, close to restaurants in Lygon Street, walking distance to University of Melbourne, and Royal Melbourne Hospital, and to Melbourne Museum and Imax Theatre. Good place to stay for families with children.

Me and a friend stayed at the Best Western Travel Inn for a girly weekend break in Melbourne. We had a deluxe double room to share and were very happy with our stay. No complaints. The staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful! The hotel was clean, modern and comfortable! Massive, huge king size bed, clean modern bathroom, fridge, ironing... More
