“short distance to airport and cheap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

we stayed only 1 night, which was enough. room smelled of cigarettes and it just didn't feel like a safe place. it's ok for one night as it is close to the airport but i wouldn't recommend it for longer stays

They did not have our booking. They still charged us and we had to go through Booking.com to get our money back. The place was filthy and disgusting. It smelt like mould even in the reception area. I would hate to see what the actual rooms were like!
Terrible service! DO NOT STAY HERE!!

A budget priced motel, not flash but cheap for the location. Rooms are not modern by any means as the complex has been there for more than 33 years that i know of. Tea and coffee facilities are provided also an iron if required. they do need a touch of paint and the odd bit of maintanance going, But you have the No.19 trams outside the Motel heading to the City that will take you from the motel through Coburg, Brunswick to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and on to the Queen Victoria Market, ending in the City opposite the Flinders Street Railway Station, the trip takes about 30/40 minutes each way and does the return trip every 10 to 20 minutes. Budget yes, (not the expensive city prices) but for cheapness and convenience, Great. Beds are warm, showers good.

Terrible motel, stay here if you want to risk your life! The room we were given was not what we booked, they didn't have a key as the guy staying in there previously had apparently "skipped out" with the key. They were able to change the lock on the spot which was disconcerting in itself. Room was meant to be non smoking but obviously wasn't as everything was saturated in cigarette smoke we could hardly breathe. Hadn't been cleaned, cigarette butts in the shower which is just disgusting. At 2 am someone tried to get into our room with a key, then went and got assistance from the owners which needless to say freaked us out as a group of women with strange guys trying to break into our room. How could the owner not have known the room was taken - he changed the bloody lock! His response to us the next day when we told him was "Well he didn't get in did he". We asked for our money back and went to another hotel the next night. He refused to give us our money back, and said "I don't care what you think, we are always full". Which they weren't. Seriously if you value your safety don't stay here!

Room Tip: Don't stay here

We just survived 3 nights in this hell hole. The reason we booked here was because my husband was competing in a 24 hour run around the corner. It was convenient definitely but that was where the positives stopped!!! I was travelling with my husband and 17 year old daughter - on opening the door to room number 23 we were horrified!! It was smelly dark and awful!! When we closed the door it had patched holes and 2 bolts ripped off the door - the kitchenette had ants the curtains had holes and the bathroom was foul!! The door handle to the bathroom was almost off and the bathroom was filthy - so bad that my daughter was scared to have a shower and asked me to wait at the door while she did. Thank god we threw our own linen in the car at the last minute. While the website says no smoking the smell of smoke wafts through the room from somewhere!! You can hear EVERYTHING going on in the rooms around you!!! Unbeknownst to us the area of coburg is not great - but honestly Saturday night (my husband was at his run) I was petrified - a woman started screaming and swearing around 1130 for people to shut up it went on for around an hour when finally the manger came and after more yelling and swearing it finally settled after 1am. Forget the pool it is green and clearly hasn't been used in years!! Great tram location that is probably the most positive thing I can say. Honestly at $145 night I expect a clean comfortable room - this room was dreadful - never ever again!!!

Was not happy even before we unpacked the car. The other clientele left a lot to be desired. The room seemed clean enough but I have read reviews that said it had been refurbished. No our room hadn't ... went and bought antibacterial cleaning wipes for the bathroom before we could shower. Very noisy all night with people hanging out in the car park and around the back. I booked for two nights but left after one (let them keep my money) as did not feel comfortable or secure.

Room Tip: Can't see where the host was friendly (according to other reviews) Had very little conversation...
