The motel is up for sale and a bit dated but the rooms are very clean, in good order. We had a very peaceful night although the noise travels a bit from room to room. The location is outstanding if you need to go to royal park for netball, hockey etc. or to the zoo. Out the back entrance it... More

Stayed for the weekend with husband and daughter. I have stayed here before and Parade Inn is my 'regular' when staying in Melbourne. The rooms are clean, roomy and have tea/coffee, ironing board, TV, fridge, hairdryer and the basic toiletries. Though the décor is dated, the price and convenience to the tram stop and short distance to major attractions are... More

I needed to stay overnight in Parkville for business, and found the Parade Inn to be great value. The room was plain, but clean and comfortable. The staff at reception and the breakfast room were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Parade Inn in April and on arrival the receptionist was very helpful. We had a very comfortable stay, decent car space directly outside our room and close proximity to pubs/eating places. Unfortunately, one cannot rely on the weather as it was raining very heavily. In the morning we went to the bistro and the staff were more... More

Although the rooms were dated, they were spotless and safe. The staff were extremely obliging and I would have no hesitation in staying there again. The hotel was very convenient as we had a hospital appointment and the location made it convenient for my husband to travel whilst I was hospitalised.

Positives: after booking a room advertised as having free wifi but being given a room without it, the friendly receptionist moved me to a different room. Also, management called to let me know I'd left my key in the door and I was allowed to use the carpark for an additional half hour while I was at an appointment. That's... More

I stayed here 2 nights and given the price (cheaper) in comparison to other motels I was pleasantly surprised with the room as it was nicer than I had expected. I was looking for somewhere near the State Netball & Hockey Centre and this was as convenient as I could imagine. I requested Internet access and was put in a... More

I was very disappointed with our stay here. I had stayed when it was the Ramada Inn and found it to be comfortable and good value. This time round, it had changed hands and looked as though very little maintenance had been done since. The decor was shabby, there was a lack of power points and the ones that were... More
