“near to highway but decent room, call ahead if late check in after 9pm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

the reception is closed at 9pm. we had a late check in at 1130 pm, luckily we called ahead. the receptionist, Mark, was kind enough to put the room key in envelop and stick it on the door so that we could just get into the room despite that we arrived very late. included in the envelop, we had a letter written by Mark, reminding us how to use the room keys and how to prevent being locked outside the room without the key card.
room is quite newly renovated, with double glass window, however, the noise from the highway can still be heard through the door slit.
the motel is located next to truck /industrial working trucks parking area.
since we prepaid the room rate completely before arrival, and we check out very early, we did not have a chance to meet the reception.
inside the room is quite clean. and it appeared as a newly renovated room. decent enough to stay if you don't mind the road traffic noise from the highway.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

The excellent rating is for the traveller who needs to get to Avalon Airport quickly in the morning and only needs a clean room, shower and a good feed. Cheap parmas, cold beer and nice staff. This is a stopover, workman's hotel/motel and is cheap and convenient. Well worth it even for Tullamarine...............

Room Tip: There was no pool, hence the terrible rating!
