This was a pleasant motel. Staff friendly and helpful. Everything you need in room, microwave, iron, toaster, fridge. Bus ride from City and shops. Nice that breakfast was included. Fresh bread, cereal, fruit juice, milk etc.

I stayed at this motel because it was close to the venue in Collingwood where I was holding an event. Unfortunately it wasn't a very pleasant experience and I would definitely not return. The rooms are very basic, breakfast is a couple of bread slices and cereal packs left on a tray in your room. There is a long corridor... More

I went there because it was a good budget price, not too close to the Centre and free parking. The staff were pleasant. The bed linen and bedroom was clean and the air conditioner started to have an effect after an hour, although it was in the middle of a heatwave. Cons - there are no rooms on the ground... More

A while ago I stayed in the twin share room with friends, and although I can't complain due to the budget price, I did say I would probably not return as I felt the cons outweighed the pros. However my boyfriend wanted to celebrate a special occasion in a spa room, and right now we needed a budget room so... More

I was only looking for cheap accommodation in Melbourne with some form of privacy and my own bathroom. I came across this place and discovered that I was pleasantly surprised. Sure it's a little noisy (you can hear every footstep other guests make), but the facilities where very sufficient for what I needed. Showers were hot and had good pressure... More

Have stayed several times for one night, as it was a good price and I wanted that particular location. Most happy with the price. Forget the breakfast, didn't touch it. Will stay there again. I like the free parking (hate how others charge extra for this). Staff friendly.

When I put in my request for "no stairs", I should have received a message back saying something like 'we regret we cannot accommodate you, as our rooms are only accessible by stairs' ! The room itself was fine in all aspects, but I climb stairs with the greatest of difficulty, so I was not in a good frame of... More

The service was courteous and helpful, unfortunately there are no open windows so you must run the air con unit at all times. Great location close to pubs and restaurants for dinning and not too far from the city. Open 24/7 for late check in, overall fair value for the money.

We booked a room online at this motel for an overnight stay via expedia.com.au and our booking confirmation clearly stated that our credit card would only be used to reserve the room and will charged at check out. This is a universal thing. Well regardless of this, the motel proceeded to take our money before we even checked in and... More
