We needed an overnight stay in this area for business and also a family catch-up.
Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful throughout the whole process.
We had stayed here before but this time we were able to enjoy the newly renovated
rooms.The hotel is situated on a very busy road but despite this, and having a room at the front of the hotel, we had a sound sleep and were undisturbed by traffic.
The hotel is small enough to allow for ease of access to reception and car parking.

Room tip: There is no lift so the ground floor would suit mobility challenged patrons

The new and improved Rowville International (previously Baton Rouge) have really given this well located Hotel the boost it so desperately needed and the improvements continue with each on my visits.
My room (14) was one of those renovated and apart from a possible fault with the dimmer switch it was superb and well appointed.
Well done to Orlando and his professional team, I look forward to my next stay when in Rowville.

Stayed at Rowville international for the first time and will be back. We did have one of the refurbished rooms so can not comment on the ones not done up uet.
All staff we dealt were very friendly from making the phone booking to checking out.
Rooms were large, modern, clean, king bed extra comfortable, bathrooms practical as well as modern.
We didn't have dinner there but got take away pizza from 2 doors down the Rd which was the best pizza we have ever tasted.
Will stay here again of refurbished room is available again when making my booking.

Stayed here for proximity to my elderly mum. The “International Hotel” label was interesting given the location and reasonable room rates. The room was basic. The bathroom beautiful! Unfortunately low water pressure meant the full benefit of the big shower head couldn’t be experienced.

Strange things experienced:
Curtain not fully closing
No luggage racks - have to use the floor or couch.
No wiFi internet access despite their being a RIH Guest option listed.
No in- room information booklet
No sugar available - just sweetener (No Earl Grey tea either)
No clean cups in daily room servicing
A VERY squeaky bathroom door, waking my husband each time I needed to visit the bathroom overnight.
The restaurant is not open at weekends

The bed was comfortable, the room clean
Generally this is a very basic 70s motel in the process of upgrade. A few things could easily receive immediate attention though. But for an affordable place to stay, it might be worth considering this option in this location.

Sorry you didn't have full shower pressure from the big shower head but there is an adjuster on the head to regulate pressure.
As you say we are in the process on big renovations, nearly finished, still more furniture to arrive.
We have noted all things that are missing but a phone call to reception as we are open 24 hours, would have solved most problems.
Restaurant is open 7 mornings a week and Monday to Friday for dinner.
