“Poorly maintained n lacking in security”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

The property has no elevator which means u need to lug your luggage up the stairs to yr room. All the rooms face a central parking compound which is accessible to all n sundry. I felt really really unsafe as a female solo traveller. I slept with the furniture pushed against the room door n had the TV n lights on the entire night to ward off would be intruders.The carpet was stained, the room had an over powering smell of incense (?) n all I wanted to do the moment I checked in was to move out !! Granted the room rate is low but seriously, I would not even stay there if it was free. The corridors are full of mud n cigarette butts
I subsequently moved to Formule 1 Hotel which is just across the street. For A$75, it was such a welcome change. Even Ramada Encore which is 5 mins away by car at A$110 per night is much better value for money See my review on the hotels..
No way would I ever return to the hotel !! Gross !!!

we stayed easter monday, place looks tired and in need of care.
Staff very friendly, quiet in rooms considering on major road.
Fragrance of fresh air thing to try to improve how the room smells were overpowering!
whilst it was not expensive, I think you could do better for your money.
Cheers

Room Tip: stay towards the rear of the property away from the highway.

The room smelt, there was a hole in the bathroom wall which turned out to be the roll holder had fallen off. At 7.30pm one night we had a knock on the door and it was the handyman to come fix it!!
There were stains and cigarette burns all over the carpet so we felt we couldn't walk around in bare feet. The service was terrible and not acceptable. Never again!

I will never stay at the Comfort Inn in Dandenong again. The shower tiles were black with mould, there was mould on the walls in the bathroom, the bathroom door wouldn't close the shower head was broken. The single bed was broken we had to put pillows under bed to keep it level, the curtains had holes in it. There were cracks in the wall and the room needed a good clean. It was not worth the money. I have stayed in cleaner places in the middle of Australia.

Room Tip: Dont stay there

I booked this accomadation because of price and it was in a handy location for my what I was doing. I was disappointed when we got to our room and found that it was really in need of a refurbishment. It was well and truly tired with heavily stained carpets and a shower that washed the ceiling as much as it did you. Beds were comfy though. It had a swimming pool which I did not use as I have his thing about not swimming with band-aids.
Staff were friendly.

Very tired decore and dirty. Stained carpets, curtains,mattress protector! The pillows are shocking but I didn't inspect them because I was frightened to! Spa Bath would not go near it! The pool did not look clean and cigarette butts everywhere.
The "Chef" needs to know that people can tell when you have used frozen vegies and even a good cook knows to warm the plates!!!
Will not go back there.
