“NEW OWNERS!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I went back there last weekend to find that the motel has very recently been sold to new owners who are managing the property themselves. The previous management has moved on.
The new owners were very pleasant and helpful with our enquiries about our accommodation and tourist related questions during our stay - we could not have been more pleased.
The other pleasant surprise was that the motel now has free wi-fi available.

Soon after check in I went to the front desk with an enquiry about the cup provided in my room. Somehow, somewhere in that exchange the woman in the front desk got upset and started quarreling with me. All matters concerning the cup was forgotten and it degenerated into a screaming match. Unsatisfied with just screaming, the woman then yelled racial abuse at me. I retreated back to my room. The rest of my stay was very tense and unpleasant.

We stayed here for several days and found it conveniently located, clean and well managed. The staff were pleasant, courteous, and went out of their way to help us when we found that we had not completed our booking. Yes it is budget, but if you are looking for luxury you'll have to let the moths out of your wallet and go elsewhere. We enjoyed our stay and would book there again. It is handy to shops and restaurants, close to the Tram line and has a beautiful park opposite. What more could you ask?

We stayed there for a week last year. The owner, a woman, was so rude to us. Room was cleaned only once in three days. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.I also noticed our bag put in a different place from where we left it when we went out in the morning.also we saw the owner fighting with another guest. Terrible experience!

My wife and I are in the 50+ age group. This hotel was a perfect place to stay in Melbourne because we drove over to shop. It is only a short tram ride to everywhere. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The price was fantastic as it included parking for our car which we did not use while in Melbourne but loaded up with shopping for the trip home. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is a 1 min walk to Brunswick or Sydney roads. This is our destination of choice now when we drive to Melbourne.

we stayed in this motel whilst on business in melbourne. we chose this place purely on location .we found the staff very helpfull and the rooms comfortable. be aware this is a budget hotel and the age of the hotel reflects this but its clean and tidy and if all you need is a place to put your head down in a convenient location this is the place.

We are a family of 5 from Ireland who used this motel as a base while doing a road trip and sight seeing trip all around Melbourne. The staff were very friendly and helpful.The rooms were very clean. It was handy into the city center with trams,buses and train all very close.There was a big park across the way.The beauty of this motel was its value for money
