I stayed at the Discovery Melbourne for one night in early February 2014. The place is huge so there's lots of people around at all times. After checking in I proceeded to my room, a private double room, and found a pool of vomit greeting me just outside. Not a great start! I informed staff and they cleaned it up however the smell still lingered in the landing. It was a very basic room and I think $70 was a little bit much quite frankly. I have to say that the bed was comfortable and clean, and there was a fan thankfully but that's about all the positives about the room. The fan however did not prove at all effective for the very hot temperature that night as it had little reach due to the high ceiling and it was a very uncomfortably night. The room could have really done with a little bit of an upgrade and looked quite shabby. For $70 I expected more. I wouldn't stay here again.
