The location rather than being out of the way is actually pretty convenient given the free circle tram that is available. Located near the stadium and railroad tracks, noise is actually not a problem, but you will want to avoid days when games/concerts are taking place as many people use this hotel as a crash pad for those events, and things can get messy and loud. In addition, the new and impressive Southern Cross Station offers a number of amenities, including a large grocery store (Coles) to supplement your dining choices and provide whatever else you may have forgotten.
The bathroom is clean with good water pressure. The bed is comfy enough, though being a budget hotel, the sheets are not the softest.
Overall a pleasant stay - you know what you're getting at this star level and Travelodge delivers it without surprises.
FYI: The Melbourne airport shuttle service arrives at Southern Cross Station before sending passengers to their hotels in smaller vans. Which means you have the option of wheeling your bags across the footbridge to the hotel if you don't want to wait for the shuttle.
