“City Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Was looking for somewhere low cost and central to Southbank and the Casino. For a Saturday night stay to reward the wife for a hard week at work, decided on staying at Docklands Travelodge. Cost was $139.00 and on checking in was advised about buffet brekky for only $14 a head. Took up the offer, brekky goes until 10.30 on Sunday and 9 30 weekdays. Great value it s $19 per head if you walk in and kids under 12 eat free. Lots of tasty morsels and its help yourself service. The room was comfy and the best A/Con in a hotel ever. Great value and checkout was 11.00 althogh we checked out at 11.30 and nothing was said. Overall it was a pleasant time and we ll be back.

Room Tip: Corner room was good.

Good location but really would be miles better if they had a dual reception desk and allowed access from the etihad - southern cross concourse, especially after night events at etihad and also would make it better for country travellers coming by train

Room was clean and modern but a bit narrower than travelodge southbank which was a bit surprising

Got there on a cheap deal which made it terrific but would pick the older travelodge southbank ahead of it

Good location to explore Docklands & CBD. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Rooms can be on the small side but very modern, clean and comfortable at a great price. Stayed on 8th floor with no view in room but the big windows at either end of the hallway made up for it - great effect. Shower had fantastic pressure!

We stayed on a Saturday night and were in Melbourne for the cricket. We booked this hotel on a wotif special and were very pleased with our stay.
The location of this hotel was fantastic. It is not far at all from Southern Cross Station or Etihad Stadium. It was also only a short walk to Docklands.
We stayed in a King room on the 8th floor. It was a quiet room with a very comfortable bed. The hotel staff were also very friendly and polite.
One thing I had trouble with was the water in shower kept going from hot to cold. I also thought that $19 for breakfast per person was a bit too pricey, especially given all of other options around Melbourne.
Overall, we were happy with the room and the service.

I only just returned home yesterday. I stayed for 5 days and I was extremely impressed. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept in ever. The free tram was only a 5 min walk away. Train station 3 min walk. DFO 10 min walk. Crown 15 mins away. The only thing is it doesn't have a pool. Other than that and price of course I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor. So quiet

My partner and I stayed here during our most recent trip to Melbourne. The room was well priced and very comfortable. The hotel internals were modern and pleasing. We slept well on the bed and had a nice view of the city from our window.

The location was slightly out of the way but once we got our bearings navigating our way to the main tram, train and bus routes was easy. Most of our locations were in the CBD / eastern suburbs as opposed to Docklands itself.

Concierge staff were very polite and assisted us greatly by holding our bags from our morning arrival until check-in time and likewise until we left the CBD for our flight in the evening of the day of our departure. This was highly appreicated.

We will certainly consider coming back next time we are in Melbourne. For the price we paid Travelodge docklands ticked all of the boxes for our stay. We are very satisfied customers from our stay here.
