“Not bad for budget stay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Pros: Economical; brekki is fine; gree parking; great location for getting to Melb CBD; tram stop out front; nice balcony; quiet, clean, breakfast were very accommodating- they offered to cook my toast in their kitchen when the buffet toaster was being used.
Cons: bathroom and kitchenette need updating; room got cold during the night

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony

A fairly basic motel that ticks all the right boxes, suits the budget concious, super friendly staff, close to public transport, free car parking, comfortable beds, very clean rooms, great showers & nice & sound proof. Had a great sleep there & will definitely be back next time we head to Melbourne

My husband and I stayed in Jan 2012. Our room was fairly clean (all except for a thick layer of dust under the fridge), and the bathroom was quite spacious. The towels were a bit tatty, but clean. As part of our stay we got included car park and continental breakfast which was the best part about our stay. The breakfast was plentiful. Also, having the tram stop in front of the inn and being so close to Sydney road (shops) were good points. Bad parts of our stay were the noise from the train which is close by. It did wake us a couple of times in the early morning. A cab ride to the city was about $15-$20.
For what we paid for the room, we were happy.

My wife and I have stayed there twice now . The small $99 pn rooms are very basic but clean .
Avoid rooms 12 & 13 as the street - traffic noise is bad.
Having Princes Park opposite is great for a nice morning walk.
Trams are at the front door .
Overall - good value for the money.
The staff are extremely friendly

Room Tip: Rooms 17 to 24 are the best. Avoid rooms 12 & 13 - the traffic noise is bad. The early morning...
