I needed to stay in Melbourne an extra night and this was one of the only places available. There's a reason for this. I drove into a tired looking place and parked in one of the narrow parking spots. I went to the office and the girls handed me a key, pointed back up the road and mumbled something. I... More

Where to start? Walking into the room, the cobwebs drew my attention immediately. The shower was blocked when i arrived, easily fixed by the main man but was still enough mould creeping up the sides to make me think twice about even using it. The gap under the door was enough to let all the traffic noise in. Hair left... More

Rooms ok but get one away from the road too noisy and you won't get any sleep. The only convenient place was Hungry Jacks and one can't eat that everyday. The Chinese Restaurant across wasn't open over the Christmas period.

Check in is noted as 2pm, we arrived at 3pm and the apartment was not ready and was still being cleaned. We were told it would take another hour or so to clean, but ended up waiting till 5pm till the room was cleaned and ready. Aircon in one room was not working. Management were probably aware of this already... More

For a short stay it was adequate. Cleanliness was fine but there were some shortcomings in the bathroom. The hot and cold tap over the handbasin gave "hot" and "cold" in reverse to indications and some re- grouting would make things look better. Bed was comfortable. Reception was always helpful and pleasant It is within walking distance to Chadstone Shopping... More

The photos on the website were misleading. The townhouse had a terrible smell coming from the stairs. The lack of attention to detail was clearly evident as we found food marks on the wall as well as hair from previous occupier in the toilet. The kitchen and sliding door windows were extremely dirty as it was better to have blinds... More

The room that we stayed in was tired and dirty. This room had not been renovated for a long time! The person on the reception desk did not have a grasp of the English language. This is the worst accommodation I have stayed at in my memory. I checked out after one night and found somewhere more suitable.

Furniture and fittings were tired and worn. Bedding and linen were comfortable and clean. Cleaning otherwise was sub-standard - poor attention to detail. TV remote didn't work. Air conditioning was effective but temperature unable to be adjusted.

After staying here I found it was an excellent property. It had a good sized room (especially for Melbourne), a lovely 'kitchen' and bathroom, airconditioning, a huge mirror and huge beds! It did have a smaller tv than I expected, but a giant tv isn't what I was paying for. Incredibly it was only $100 for 3 of us to... More

This is a good average motel, rooms are very dated and in need an update, lady at reception was very pleasant, this motel probably better suited to tradesman but all in all, except for the hardest bed I've ever slept on, I couldn't complain.
