Yesterday's hero?

I last stayed at this place exactly 18 years ago: Nothing (much) has changed since! The rooms are of a good size, the bed is comfortable, the carpet is new, the TV is up-to-date - and everything is clean. But the rest is outdated, old fashioned, screaming for an update. If you can accept the good old motel-style accommodation this is still a good place in a good location.

Good Value

A pleasant surprise, friendly efficient staff, very welcoming, upstairs room, well I need the exercise and it felt more secure. FREE parking, also secure, comfy bed, cosy room, so good I didn't even leave my room for the free drinks on offer at the pub across the road, courtesy of Best Western, maybe next time and yes there will be a next time, coz the edge of town location suits me fine. Cheers.

Pleasantly surprised

From check-in to check-out, the reception staff were exceptional. We were very pleased with the appearance of the room, clean & tidy, furnishing was certainly adequate, bed comfortable. There was a little outside traffic noise, but not disturbing. We would definately stay here again! Value for money.

good value in Melbourne

Nice place to stay in Melbourne with good value, not really that far from the CBD as tram is close by for those that don't have a vehicle, rooms are clean and serviced daily, pub across the road for a close meal, 7/11 around the corner for anything else needed. We stayed here for 4 days while we looked around Melbourne and it met all our needs - Only downside was when we did some washing the dryer just wouldn't dry our stuff, ended up putting $15 into it and our clothes still were not dry!

Ideal for a layover

Quite happy with the place. However, feel a lacking sense of security as anybody can just go up to the room corridors. No gate and parking although is sheltered and supposed to be under the premise, anybody can also access as well. Quite noisy as it is situated besides a busy traffic junction and tram. The room is ok but they really need to change the shower curtain. It smells so horrible and it seemed that they did not bother to change it or wash it.

Comfortable 1 night stay

On arrival I was greeted by a very friendly young man who couldn't have been more helpful. As the temperature was in the 40's we expected to enter a warm room, this was not the case. On opening the door the coolness of the room greeted us/ BLISS after travelling 3 hrs in the heat. May be more milk in the fridge but other than that we had a great stay

At the hockey

We wanted to watch hockey, so this motel was well located for us near the hockey and netball complex. Having a little kitchen was great, and a good shopping center close by. The tram stop for the city was outside our door, so location was excellent. Staff we very helpful, and although an older motel, it has been well maintained, and is spotlessly clean.

The hotel is located at a very good location with free car parking. The room is large, clean and comfy. We always stay at this hotel whenever we have a holiday in Melbourne. It is a great hotel to stay in Melbourne.

NOTHING SPECIAL

just a motel and nothing else. Expect the basics from a city (Melbourne) where the hospitality is well overpriced and surely underachieving. This is Australia for you! PS: the gentleman at reception had great welcoming skills, totally unreal for a place like this!!
