If you want a decent well located motel then look no further. Park at your front door, then get on the train or tram easily. Restaurants just up the road. Nothing fancy, but it's all we needed. Just easy!

Initially I selected this hostel as it was on the way from the airport to the city. The brand has good reputation, and is in perfect location for travellers arriving late at night I had booking for a friday and it happen that I arrived one day earlier, around 11pm. Hoping to arrange an extra night in the hotel I...

Met business friends for dinner. Would have to be the worst meal that I have ever had at a motel restaurant. Would not recommend. Had the Currie special 3 pieces of meat,that were cold. Sauce ok,got a replacement meal, not much better. Other meals not much better. Very ordinary.

Best Western in Mount Alexander Road Essendon can be recommended. It's not the Ritz, but it is clean and tidy with appropriate amenities. Car parking is available,it's about 20 minuted by car to the city. The Essendon Train Station is about 10 minutes walk from the motel. You can't miss the Best Western Alexander. It's best to make a booking,...
