I haven't stayed at too many places in the Dandenong area, but seem fated to be there more often in the future on business, so have been trying a number of local establishments. The Punthill is the best so far in terms of offering pleasant modern rooms, free secure parking and free wi-fi, which makes the effective room rate cheaper than other nearby places (e.g. Quest Dandenong) which charge a cheaper rate for the room but slap on an exorbitant internet rate.
As others have commented, reception is hit-or-miss, and I'm not fond of places that take pre-payment for your stay on arrival, but the room was clean, pleasantly furnished, and I appreciated the kitchenette (so self-catering from the nearby IGA supermarket is possible). There was a huge ceramic bowl on the desk which seemed pointless since I had to figure out where to carefully move it in order to use the desk, but otherwise there was nothing else to complain about. Except for one very minor gouge: if you call downstairs for room service from the on-site restaurant, you get hit with a $0.75 local call charge! First time for everything...
