Convenient and well-priced

We were unexpectedly fog-bound in Melbourne. I was able to book this hotel at 9pm through the website and checked in half an hour later. It was quite close to the airport, the receptionist was welcoming and the room was nicely appointed. A bit small, but very comfortable, and just what we needed in an emergency.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Pack your clothes on hangers! Hotels NEVER have enough, and it cuts your unpacking time in half. It also makes your suitcase contents more structured and less likely to shift around and crumple.

Great Hotel

This hotel is a travellers hotel that offers the opportunity to drive into Melbourne park your car and tram it until you are ready to go home! it is getting old and needs a little work but it is clean, comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. I had a number of requests of the staff and their cheerful happy responses made me feel welcome and reaasured. I believe they have long term units that are newer with adidtional facilties for those wishing to stay in the longer term. we stayed in the motel accommodation. The tram ride is about 25 mins from the cbd and passes the childrens hospital on the way into town.

Just a motel...

A good bed to crush on, an average motel bathroom, a limited internet connection... that's about it. If that what you need, it is ok. if you want something more, you might be disappointed.

It was fine. Nice and clean functional.

It was fine. Nice and clean functional. The room was small but we only wanted somewhere to crash for 2 nights so it was fine. Mt Alexander Road is a little noisy and the coming and goings of other guests can be too and the rooms are not at all sound proof so if you are very noise sensitive this may not be suitable, but it wasn't bad and we slept fine. Cooked breakfast was pretty good although the juice was just in a bottle same as you get at 7-11, but otherwise it was good. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

This is my lowest rating yet for a Best Western Motel. I have had better for the price. Outside building lights stayed on all night and made sleep difficult. I was misdirected when asking for directions to the local club. I did like the beds, and the free internet facilities in the foyer.
