Extremely hot in Melbourne when i visited. The air conditioner worked silently and well. The television had perfect reception, the bed was comfy and the shower very adequate. The room was near the back, and although full occupancy, was quiet. The jug was clean and lots of tea and coffee. Value for money.

Restaurant served good, quick food but possibly over charged. The service was very good and nice. The reception staff were average. We found the room to be dated, for above award price. We found unexpected items in room upon arrival which should have been thoroughly checked. The bed sheets were very unclean. We won't be returning.

Nothing flash here but to be fair it's just tired little motor in on a busy road. If you are after a bed and shower with easy access in the chadstone area with a place to park your car then don't complain.

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!

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...

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...
