“Utilitarian accommodation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Went over to watch the football at Etihad, so was looking for somewhere close & accessible. It is certainly close to the stadium and close to Southern Cross station 5min walk max. The price is good value, rooms are clean but a bit on the small side (we had a twin room) not much space to move around but if all you are looking for is somewhere to store the shopping & sleep then it ticks all the boxes. The breakfast is $19 a head and fairly typical for these hotels would strongly suggest that you eat in one of Melbourne's many cafes for breakfast - better value for $.
In saying all that with the hotel you get what you pay for - a good clean basic room.

After flying in we took the Skybus to Spencer St Station and a short walk to the hotel, just so easy.
The room was fine, a little tight for 3 guys, but all we needed.
Breakie was yummy and cheaper if you pre-booked.
The stadium was less than a 5 minute walk, just what we were after.

Conveniently located in Docklands area. It is near tram stop where you can get free tram number 35 to bring you to town. If you want to take cab to Swanston street, it cost around Aud $10.00. You can also walk to Harbour town. Near to Ethihad Stadium too.

We bought a Webjet package for a footy game at Etiad Stadium, initially I was apprehensive with its location and external appearance as I arrived.But the King room was great, in retrospect location was excellent once we became more familiar with the surrounds, generally staff were friendly and very helpful. It is the only one of the six motels and apartments in which I have stayed during this year that did not offer free wireless internet. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: I think southern rooms would be preferable

Found this hotel on Jetstar's sale page one evening, decided to bite the bullet and go for it. Ended up being a great hotel.

Advantages:
Great service
Value for money
Clean
$20/day parking - unlimited entry/exits

Disadvantages
Average shower pressure
Quite a bit of a walk to CBD - 15-20mins from Docklands
Football night at Eitihad Stadium? Goodluck moving around in a car.
