The Sandringham (the Sandy) Hotel, Melbourne

If anybody is planning to stay here be warned - it's shabby to say the least. Looks like zero maintenance carried out in a long time, it's pretty dirty too. Just had a short stay there and found the Sandy to be lacking at just about every level including even no staff to be found when trying to check out. Will be posting a proper review once its set up on TA.

I'm sorry you had a bad stay but for future reference, the Sandringham is really a 'venue' first and a motel second. It's not a hotel. Therefore it will be very, very basic cheap accommodation.

What a pity you didn't do a search on the Melbourne forum before staying there:

It's basically a very busy pub with rooms as an add on.

Its always advisable to write a review about your experiences on the Hotel Review Site. if the Hotel is not listed then ask TA for assistance.
