This hotel is well located, but it is disgusting. I stayed here for five nights and the sheets were not changed once. The bathroom was never cleaned - they pretty much make the bed and add towels. The dirty cups are just wiped and placed back on the saucers. I even found the dental floss I tossed the night before... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights, over a weekend and chose it mainly because of the location. We love it around Lygon Street and had Italian cousine both nights. It was me and my husband plus our 2 year old child but the room we were given was very small and would never have fitted a cot into... More

I booked this on a whim on wotif. Included in the package was a spa room, hot breakfast and a car parking space. The room from my understanding had been upgraded in late 2009. It looked new, had TWO queen size beds, LCD, corner spa (for 2 people), and was quite spacious. The pool looked nice (way too cold to... More

The Travel Inn is located in the suburb of Carlton, approximately 3kms from the center of Melbourne. Although it is not located in the city center, nevertheless, it is in a safe area with plenty of restaurants, shops and transport nearby. The Travel Inn is located just 100 meters from Lygon St, which is a very big Italian area, with... More

My stay was paid for by my workplace, so that was a great start. I arrived on a very warm November afternoon, and was impressed upon entering the room that the air conditioning was already on. This made a wonderful impact when I came back from my seminars. This hotel is located only a five minute walk away from Lygon... More

Disappointed with the manner of approach demonstrated by Chinese receptionist (I am not a racist, I am of Chinese origin too) at the front office yesterday morning 23/10/09 @ just after 8.30am when I handed in my key informing her I was checking out. I stayed overnight in room 220. Forgetting that it's daylight saving in Vic, I 'overselpt' and... More

My partner found this room on Wotif. Fantastic service - we were very impressed that the reception and housekeeping staff would go out of their way to assist us. I left an expensive dress in the closet and didn't realise until I was home in 3 days time - rang the reception and they found it and sent it to... More

The Best Western Travel Inn Hotel is in an excellent position for Lygon Street Carlton and Melbourne University. But don't bother with this hotel if your needs are in the Melbourne CBD. This property is very tired, and needs a major make-over. It is really a 1970's style motel. While it is clean and well managed, it does not offer... More

I stayed here for a week on business and would quite happily stay again. It's just one street along from Lygon St and easy walking distance to the hospital and Uni which is where I needed to be. While the hotel isn't the most glamorous I have stayed in it had everything I needed and I loved the location. I... More
