I booked a room here at very short notice for a couple of nights over the Easter break and from the moment I arrived was very impressed. I've passed this Motor Inn many times when I've been in Melbourne and have always been a bit put off by the external appearance (a bit dated & 70s retro) but this is definitely a case of don't judge a book by its cover!
I arrived early but the reception staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and even upgraded me on arrival. The room - with a small kitchen - was spotlessly clean and everything that you need when you're travelling around and trying to prepare meals etc was there. The beds were super comfortable, the room had good lighting, quiet air-con, big flat screen TV, and power points in all the right places. The kitchen was well fitted out with a micro-wave, stove/oven and fridge + a good range of utensils, crockery and cooking pots etc. There is also loads of off-street, under cover parking and no extra fee is charged for this which is unusual for Melbourne and a real bonus if you're travelling with a vehicle.
Our unit faced onto Brunswick Road which was a little noisy but tolerable and at least we had a lovely view over the park. Lots of great shops/restaurants on Sydney Road right outside the door and an easy tram ride (or longer walk) into the city.
I'll definitely be back!
