      its not a 5 star motel so u get what you pay for. for the price l paid l am happy with accommodation and service provided.

      I thought the menu was very limited, but lm sure others would find it suitable. The toilet bowl did need a good scrub but l soon fixed that myself. !!

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      It's location to Essendon Airport as we didn't know where we had to go for our day trip. Easy to find and centrally located for restaurants/bistros

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      Easy axcess. convient to shops and the show grounds

      The cold water tape could not turn off. It ran all night and all day

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      IIt provided a bed close to our family in Essendon.

      It is beginning to look a little tired especially the bathroom.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Good cleaning staff.

      We stayed 3 nights and every night after 1am we were kept up by noisey foul mouth passerbys coming and going from a near by venue.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      The room was clean and comfortable, as was the bed and the pillows. (Very unusual for a motel that isn't expensive.)

      The water temperature in the shower fluctuated a lot, making it a little uncomfortable from time to time.Noisy guests coming and going

    • Family with children
      5.8

      clean sheets and views

      Decor very poor, needs major renovations

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      easy to find and the staff were terrific

      sound proffing of the room needed looking at(traffic noise)curtains need to be installed in kitchen above sink to block outside light in appartment 9 and the creeking floor boards made it hard too move around appartment without risk off wakeing other sleeping people

    • Single
      9.2

      Latest checkin time was 10pm. Didn't notice this on the website if it was displayed. When I arrived at 10.20pm i was told they were closed. They did not seem impressed although they had put a key out for me. Thought they could have been a bit more understanding or friendly about it.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      Our family room was lovely & spacious, the staff were all friendly & helpful, we had a lovely view from our window. Plus we were so close to everything that we wanted to visit & see. It was a fantastic stay in Melbourne & I would highly recommend this motel to everybody.

    • Group of friends
      4.2

      convenience

      The matresses were so poor, too...soft.

    • Family with children
      3.2

      An unpleasant experience made worse by the very noisy nightclub directly below our room.

      Room style in desperate need of an upgrade.
