We booked into an apartment and it was filthy. Kitchen was horrid and so grimy. Some power points did not work and there was an extension cord strung across the room. Yard back n front was overgrown with rubbish in bushes. Very unhappy. NEVER AGAIN!

This is not the first time I been to that motel. On 2012 I went visit my uncle lived in Oakleigh just 5mins walking from that motel. On that time, the motel is very nice. The manager is a Chinese guy who is very funny and really look after me, but last week I have been there again, the room... More

Non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. We found a cigarette lighter under the bed. Obviously owners aren't worried. The smell was unbearable for us non smokers! Motel rooms should not be carpeted. Carpet was dirty. Otherwise room was quiet which we liked.

I stayed in a standard twin. The rooms are very basic and worn but clean and well laid out. The toiletries are appalling even by hotel standards. No soap bars or shampoo, just a push dispenser in the shower, disgraceful. You need to bring your own even to pass one night. Too expensive for what is on offer but no... More

As always a last minute decision to find accommodation and this one was a cheap one so keep that in mind. - Check in was awkward. - Rooms were old and tired - Beds were clean and comfortable - Bathrooms have appeared to have been upgraded, very clean. - Cutlery kept in packaging ('your clean cutlery') did in fact still...

Its cheap. 100 a night. So don't expect the hilton. For what you pay this place is divine. Fluffy pillows, crisp sheets, clean surrounds. It's a touch noisy being next to the highway but again, it's 100 dollars. It's worth it and the reception staff are lovely. Please start serving hot breakfast though. Toast and cereal doesn't cut it for... More

Checked into this motel in late January when the Australian Open was on. My partner and I had just planned to spend our nights here as we were looking to move to the local area and were checking out potential places to rent. I have to say that it was not very pleasant.

I needed to stay in Melbourne an extra night and this was one of the only places available. There's a reason for this. I drove into a tired looking place and parked in one of the narrow parking spots. I went to the office and the girls handed me a key, pointed back up the road and mumbled something. I... More

Where to start? Walking into the room, the cobwebs drew my attention immediately. The shower was blocked when i arrived, easily fixed by the main man but was still enough mould creeping up the sides to make me think twice about even using it. The gap under the door was enough to let all the traffic noise in. Hair left... More
