“My Stay In February”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

I would highly recommend the Parkdale Motor Inn, Parkdale, Vic to anyone who likes to be near the beach and public transport. Sharon & Graham were very friendly and outgoing, and paid great attention to the smallest detail.
While I was there I was treated as a friend. My room was light and airy, serviced completely and supplies completely replenished as used.
The prices were good. The only thing is, that in time a lift should be installed to enable access by disabled people and to be able to carry luggage safely up to the accommodation.
Well done Sharon & Graham Hunt

stayed 7 nights. Gary & Sharon have been great to accomodate, I started in a fully refurbished room which was excellent but had to move when a friend arrived. The twin was yet to be done so they put us in a family room which was halfway there and the cost reflected that. The outlook, mainly the gardens need serious work to make it more pleasent. This place represents good accomodation at a fair price, especially if your looking at a base for the sandbelt golf courses. Would stay here again

Definately go to Blah Blah in Cheltenham for the best food

Initially selected motel through wotif - Mangaers advised they could better the price by paying direct. Returned to the motel on a further three occasions for weekly stays in course of business trips to Melbourne. The accommodation is excellent. Room is always serviced and clean. The restuarant meals are hearty and very well priced. The best asset of the motel is the friendly and welcoming nature of the managers, Garry and Sharon, nothing is too much bother to them. I travel all over Australia with my occupation, staying in all forms of accommodation. This one is up there with them.

Booked for 2 nights ended up staying for 5, thanks to the managers for accommodating us for the extra days (dust cloud stopped our flights). Anne the manager contacted our airline to see if the flight was going, when eventually we were going to fly, Anne booked our transport to the airport. Parkdale motor inn is one of the most homely, places we have stayed on this trip. See you in 2 months.

Room Tip: Sweet talk the managers

We booked S3 and S4 interconnecting rooms which have been completely refurbished and stayed 4 nights. The rooms were large and clean and I have no complaints about them. The property is still being renovated. On arrival it was a bit like the back entrance to the local shops - not very welcoming. The gardens need urgent attention - this would make a difference. Our rooms opened onto a large terrace which was a disgrace. They could at least clean up all the cigarette ends and empty the ashtray daily. There was also a pot full of cigarette ends at the bottom of the stairwell to our rooms. Our rooms were not "made up" even though this is a motel although we did get clean towels delivered each day. I was a bit peeved at having to make my own bed in a motel. The property seems to be suffering from a split personality. Is it a motel or serviced apartment. There is no information on the website about the level of service to expect - not much actually . We had a kitchen in one room but there was no detergent or scourer provided and they did not do any of the washing up. Lots of rubbish lying around. We stayed here because our daughter lives in Parkdale and we came for her graduation. The motel is well located for the beach and Mordialloc. Overall, we would stay here again but I would like to see improved cleanliness of the premises generally and better servicing or the rooms or clarification on their website. By the way, the motel is located on the interesection of a busy Highway. If you are not used to traffic noise and this is likely to affect your sleep then definitely dont stay here. The management appeared to be temporary.

Room Tip: Noisy place to stay

Unfortunately the terrace you were refering to, is actually a roof under repare. we deferred the contractors from working, whilst you were in residence. The apartment that you resided in, is a "self contained unit", provided with personal cooking facilities.As your comment regarding serviced apartments or motel, we are a motel and only have 3 self contained rooms with cooking facilities, as some previous long term guests had requested these facilities.
We do agree that the gardens are in need of attention,but priority at this time is based on the upgrading of the premises, so that guests are provided with, pleasant and clean accommodation.

My husband and two children stayed at The Parkdale Motor Inn and the accomodation was of high standard and the staff were friendly, helpful and attended to all our needs. I would recommend this hotel to any one heading over to the bayside area. They have a restaurant on site and is only 5 mintues to the beach
