Great motel in Melbourne, not far from public transport & the city Centre. The accommodation was really good. The staff were really helpful & kind, gave us maps of the area. I would recommend that place again.. ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) 9/10 for good service...

Having driven passed this place for nearly 20 years, I had never given it a second thought.
But traffic has driven me to pursue being a city dweller for the time being. As purchasing a property in this city is an impossible dream only accessible to the foreign invader, rental apartments are now the only choice.
Even though it is a little dated, the price is what draws me back. I can stay three nights here when only 1 or 2 are possible elsewhere. The light breakfast is a huge bonus. Came back after work to find a fresh breakfast set up as well as new towels and sheets. Clean and neat. Any requests met with helpful service. And you can get to you car without getting rained on when checking in.

Room Tip: Arden street is noisy but I didn't hear it after the first night and the balcony space and airin...

Stayed for two nights, room was not well cleaned and very dated. Housekeeping staff very rude and arrogant, actually hanging out close to our room waiting for us to vacate. Told the cleaner he was creepy standing there. The receptionist was a very friendly young man. I would recommend looking elsewhere!!!

$91 for two single beds on a Saturday night. Clean but scruffy around the edges. Cereal and bread thrown in as well. Clean bathroom, quite new TV. Beds were comfortable. You get a parking spot on site. 4 min tram ride into the city (+ 4 min walk to the tram stop). They don't seem to have caught up with the internet age so you have to book the old fashion way and call them. I doubt they would have to worry about advertising with a high level of repeat business and word of mouth. Quite happy to stay there again.

Our first trip to Melbourne and wanted accommodation in North Melbourne close to where our son lives. As the Arden Motel was just around the corner, it was ideal. Yes, the décor is dated and could do with some renovation, but it was roomy, clean, comfortable and quiet and the staff friendly and you would find it hard to get accommodation this close to the city at such a good price with breakfast and the daily paper included.
Room had airconditioning (heating & cooling), lounge, flat screen TV, dresser, small table & chairs, double bed (with electric blanket), small kitchenette with microwave, kettle & toaster and clean crockery & cutlery left every day. Breakfast was replenished each day and consisted of cornflakes, bread, raisin bread, juice, milk, spreads, tea, coffee, etc. Ensuite bathroom was a good size.
Tram stops in the next street, Victoria Markets a short 10 minute walk and the city centre about a 20 minute walk. Great location!
Will certainly be staying here on our next visit.
