“Cheap and the location is good”
Reviewed March 27, 2008

I go to the Australian Open (tennis) every year, so for the last 3 years, this is where i've stayed.
Everytime ive opted for the apartment as there are 4 rooms inc kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, lounge. They are very spacious compared to what you normally get. Loadsa room!
The handiest thing i found was, altho i hire a car, you are directly on a tram line into the city, which takes about 5 mins.
There is free wifi in the breakfast room, altho not in the rooms. I'd go for an apartment as they are not much more expensive, but way way comfier than a regular room.
Its easy to find from the airport, even without going on the toll roads. Plenty of take aways/restaurants around as well as shopping centres etc
The cons....if it gets really hot, the air con system is in the lounge area, there is a pull out bed to overcome this problem!
No grill, no oven! Just 4 hobs, microwave etc.

Depends what you are actually looking for, but its clean, affordable, close to the city (by tram), 20 mins from the airport (but again get a tram or a taxi)

  • Liked — location, space, tram line outside!
  • Disliked — aircon not in bedroom (melbourne gets hot in january)!!!

We booked a double room through wotif.com and had a good "mid-winter special" rate for 4 days. It was clean and comfortable, I suspect it has changed hands since previous reviews. Staff were very accomodating. The quality of the fittings was OK , comfortable bed, good carpet , nice bathroom (looked new). The room had a queen size bed, table and chairs for 2, 2 seater sofa, TV, extra blankets and pillows all in near new condition.All rooms are upstairs with parking underneath so not a good choice for those with mobility problems. Breakfast was extra and basic - self-serve juice, cereal, toast, tea bag and instant coffee.
Great location. Tram stop to city outside the door - 10 minutes to city centre. Motel reception sells tram tickets.

We would happily stay here again

  • Liked — Clean, cheap close to the city
  • Disliked — Breakfast very basic and at extra cost

Our family checked in and went sightseeing, on returning we found ants in our bed and spiders around the ceiling.
Further inspection, and more ants were found on the coffee table in the "lounge" area.
The room was musty and we found holes in the sheets and carpet rotten.
Also no cold water for hand basin. We were told about the water problem but it needs to be noted anyway.
It was 10.30pm but we had to book out and find another hotel as this was just horrible.
The managment however were willing to offer other rooms but we had lost faith in this establishment. A full refund was returned, so that was good relations but still a non goer.

Bathroom was in reasonable repair but rest of room very dinghy and tired.Carpets dirty. Threadbare towels and holes in blanket on the bed. Noisy location and overpriced.
