Arden Motel
Ranked #7 of 25 Melbourne B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 11, 2014

I read some of the reviews before we booked which was a bit off putting, but we decided to see for ourselves as it was within a budget we wanted to keep to. And who ever posted some of the negative reviews below need to realise what they paid, they did not pay and should not expect the modern standards of some of the over priced hotel in Melbourne. It was very clean and roomy, you had safe parking free, abundant breakfast free and was a stones throw to the city. The service was great very helpful hardworking people on the desk, room cleaned and restocked everyday, fresh towels and accessories. We re booked because it was great value. We have paid a lot more in the past and been disappointed. Thank god for places like the Arden for people and families who need to come to Melbourne on a tight budget. Well done Arden management, we will recomend you to others.

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.
