Booked in, whilst I was in Melbourne, room was clean enough, bed was comfortable, air con worked well, the fridge in my room was very noisy, made terrible noises all night to the point I would switch it off, bathroom was not cleaned properly, but the BEST water pressure I have ever had! Was supposed to have a DVD player...

If you think you've got a four star hotel for an amazing price, you'll be disappointed. It's a three star motel that is dated but clean and the rooms and ensuite bathroom are quite spacious. It's close to the Melbourne CBD and near a main road so bring set of earplugs if you're a light sleeper. You wouldn't expect extras...

Up steep stairs, where the Office is, our room was clean but dated. Undercover parking was good, so we left the car there & walked&/or took the train 2 stops to The Aust Open Tennis. Basic breakfast provisions were included. Shower sliding door came off its rail so we fixed it. The fridge needed defrosting so we did that. A...

I recently stayed at city East Motel with my 4 year old son and my mother, we have never been so disappointed, everyone that works there is rude, our room was disgusting! There was used tissues, crushed biscuits etc under the beds, the towels were full of holes and stains! The light switches were black! I payed for a separate...

You get what you pay for. Check in and out experience was very quick and hassle free however impersonal. The room immediately had a smell of stale cigarette smoke. Other than that the room was adequate. A couple of things wrong which were the shower door broken and mouldy and the toilet seat broken. Continental breakfast included which was really...

If you're looking for a cheap nights stay then this is your destination but don't expect too much for what you pay. Shower leaked badly into the bathroom completely flooding it after one shower which then leaked out into the carpet leaving the room to have a rather unpleasant smell. Lights outside are left on 24/7 making sleep a little...

Not worth trying to save a few dollars for the sake of your families safety. Up at 3.20am to a smoke alarm siren where the owner took almost 30mins to ring fire brigade. Did not inform ANY guests what was going on. Place was filthy with a dirty knife still sitting on the main bedroom floor, obviously not cleaned properly!...

This motel is close to public transport ie tram train and bus, and also has undercover car parking Although the premisses are tired looking the place is spotlessly clean. Rate includes a continental breakfast in your room Staff are very helpful. Lots of restaurants with in 10 minutes Excellent value for the price

Stayed here recently on business as preferred hotel unavailable... Had to stay in location as close to work. Dirty entrance, stairs had empty beer stubbies on them.. You get a sense of being in prison once checked in with dorm style set up. Chairs with covers line the 'hall ways'. Room had a stale smoke smell. Cereal provided but no...
