“Noisy motel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Booked in by employer, but not again. This is a motel next to a very busy main road.

Problems
Door lock on room didn't work, couldn't get in all the time.
Excessive traffic noise from the main road just outside the window, I had to put mattress over window to reduce noise. Slept on cushions - but not very well. A design flaw in hotel as no double glazing, or they could of put the bathroom on the road side to insulate room. Poor design.
Complained about above and got "upgraded" to a spa room, its the same ! but not on main road so can get some sleep. Except have to jam door as rattles and poured shampoo down drain to stop smell.
Expensive for what it is.

Good points
Location good near restaurants
Clean
staff good
clean
reasonable state of repair

Room Tip: get a room on kingsway side definitely not on 2nd floor on main road, ground floor has thick wall wh...

This was my second stay at this place. The staff was very helpful . This being a business tour didnt spend much time in the hotel. The rooms are clean , and rather economical. There are lot of good food options nearby.

Room Tip: Good place for business travellers, if you want to stay in Glen Waverley.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Basketball teams (3) stayed for 3 nights June long weekend. Really good group booking rate considering a long weekend. Rooms clean and tidy (twin room with singles or king size bed (was huge and very comfortable). Nice big flat screen. Free Internet would be great. Rooms not huge but comfortable enough for 2 adults. Bathroom spacious, well lit, modern and good water pressure.. Reverse cycle aircon/heater was much appreciated in Melb winter. We were on the street off Springvale road (opposite Ibis Hotel) so nice and quiet, only noise from occasional clunking of water pipes or noisy guests coming home late in the evening! Ample parking, good layout for sports teams in groups as easy to get to each others rooms. Fabulous location walking to Novotel Glen Waverley shopping, restaurants (great Malaysian "Straits of Malacca", lotsa Asian cuisine) cinema/bowling and the Centro Glen Waverley shopping centre (supermarkets etc). Did not use room service or restaurant facilities but Lauren was extremely helpful in accommodating our team in the restaurant area for team pizza dinner. Great customer service checkout day with prompt phone calls to guests leaving personal belongings behind in the room. Motel (yes, not really a hotel and not "international") could entice more groups by tailoring accomm packages to include breakfast at a reasonable room rate ( hint: Novotel Glen Waverley do a great package for 4 people including breakfast for the Nunawading June long weekend basketball tournament. Really pleasantly surprised at this one and highly recommended for great value accommodation in Glen Waverley.

Room Tip: Choose room in street off Springvale Road (opposite the Ibis hotel) and on first floor.

Stayed here for 3 nights for business. Highway rooms were noisy, the hotel lacked facilities and rooms very basic.

Staff were friendly and rooms clean.
I would hardly describe as an "international hotel".

We stayed 4 nights at this place and found the whole experience very very good. From the check in to departure we were very impressed. The rooms were very clean and tidy and the cafes up the road were outstanding with their coffees. Would not hesitate to stay at this place again if the occasion arises.

Very clean and quiet, quality sleep assured. Well rested after a long flight to Melbourne. If free wifi provided, that would be perfect!

I stayed in Room 220, the nut at the doorlock seems missing.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

Agree with prior reviewers - this place is a genuine Motel - ie. all rooms face the carpark.
I stayed here as my first choice in the area - Quest Glen Waverley - was not available.

The carpark is an open air carpark - just what you need during a Melbourne Winter. At checkin my license was taken and details entered into a computer - My understanding of the privacy act is limited but pretty sure that if you do this, you need to have your privacy policy clearly displayed - didn't see that anywhere - but I was too tired to query it.

The first room I was given stunk of cigarette smoke. When i returned to reception to advise them of this, they asked "so, do you want another room?" - ah, yes, the Casino hotels are really the only locations in Australia that still have smoking rooms!

Only 1 room key was provided, with it being one of those keys that needs to remain in place to operate all electricity - including the heater. This meant that if you needed to step out, yoru room would be freezing when you returned.

BAthroom was clean, but pipe noise was amazingly loud. Limited analog TV channels.

Hot food is available from reception, but food options in Glenwaverley are so close not sure why you'd bother with room service.

Overall, I'd suggest paying not much more and staying at the brand new Quest up the road, or for the same price stay at the Ibis across the road.
