Reviewed June 14, 2012

Ok motel. First room the TV wasnt working, so they moved us to a second room. Place is very clean, affordable and central.

Bad: They took my credit card for authorisation at check in which is fine. Have checked, they actually withdrew $100 from my account (instead of just keeping the card number on file in case of any expenses) and still 5 days after checking out, they havent yet refunded it. So just accumulating the interest while in possession of my money which they have no right to.

Stayed here for a conference in Dandenong for 3 nights. You really wouldn't visit for any other reason. As has been said before it's basic, modern and cheap. Buffet breakfast included, parking if you want it.

Biggest problem was the airconditioning. Entered my room to find it a toasty 50 degrees. Went to the aircon switch to turn it down, but of course it's broken. Went to reception to get another room, but no, the guy at the front desk says that he can turn it down. Spent the next 3 days in either 50 degree heat or -15 degrees. At one stage penguins had started to colonise my room it was so cold. No excess blankets in the room, so the 2 towels provided gave some extra warmth. Braving the -15 degrees at night was barely tolerable, but the aircon controllers down stairs decided it might be fun to turn the heat on at 3am sunday morning. Maybe they were timing it with me waking up, but unfortunately by 4 am it was now 50 degrees again.

Unfortunately also, you aren't spoilt for choice in Dandenong.

As all encores its very basic and down to the point like premier inns etc. Clean hotel. Staff where extremley helpful. Big shopping centre across the road and main street 2 mins walk around the corner. We stayed here as its close to my friends in this area Bentleigh and Dandenong itself. If your looking for a Melbourne hotel your in the wrong place. It's quite far out and more residential area and business. My dad also stayed here as it was close to his work

Stayed several nights for business. Dandenong was a very central destination and the hotel appeared to be good value compared to others online. The hotel room was very new, clean and had most facilities. The bed was large and comfortable but the room was fairly small and as I was staying for business and doing some work in the room at night, work space was cramp as well. The room was reasonably quite and did not hear any outside noise.

I stayed here because my daughter was competing in the Danenong basketball tournament. The location was perfect being only 4 mins from the tournament and with the Dandenong plaza literally across the road.

The room was clean but basic and a bit on the small side for my liking.

Parking is very easy and with a comprehensive breakfast included in the price the stay was good value for money.

Good hotel, quiet and neat rooms. Wi fi available only in the lobby, internet available in the rooms via a cable. Breakfast decent, very accessible with malls and other amenities close by. Free parking as well. Good if you want to visit Scoresby, Glen Waverly and other suburbs of melbourne.

Very friendly staff and clean quiet rooms. The hotel is well located in a mall opposite a shopping centre. Very small gripe was that they didn't have soy milk available at breakfast.
