The price was fine for the accommodation and we had two clean rooms. The beds were neatly made and well presented. The reception staff was polite and helpful. The booking online process was easy. Just need to have more secure windows for sound block out.

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in (including hostels). Having arrived at 2.30am, the machine outside for out of ours check in had a sign on saying it was no longer in use (clearly no attempt to fix it) and I had to wait outside for 10 minutes for the night manager to check me...

No frills hotel indeed. Cannot complain for the price! Great location for us (right on the ring road). Stayed twice in this hotel, and, whilst basic, slept well both times. Bed is ok, sheets are clean, water in bathroom is hot, parking is available and free. It does suffer from road noise and also the train which runs next door,...

I arrived at this hotel to find a group of about 10 people locked outside waiting to get in. There was nobody there even though it was made very obvious upon booking the room that we would be able to check in at any time. This hotel it near the Melbourne airport...it's what they do. We are unable to check...

About 15-20 minutes from airport, this is a basic no frills hotel. The rooms are small, the bathroom is tiny. Service is fine - what I would expect from a budget line. Saying all this the rooms were clean and quiet and the location was very good and strong free Wifi. There is a pub with a restaurant almost next...

Myself and my partner stayed here the night before catching an international flight. The staff were quite accommodating, we travelled about 3.5 hours to get into melbourne and weren't going to make the 10pm check in, we rang ahead and asked if that would be okay and they said yes as we had booked the room online and already paid....

This is a good hotel if you keep in mind that it's a budget offering before you book. You don't get shampoo, the cups provided are styrofoam, you may need to carry your bags up stairs and special requests often cannot be accommodated. But if you want a clean room with comfortable beds, a TV, fridge, kettle and a toilet...

Definitely budget hotel material, so it's not like I wasn't aware about what I would be walking into. Pro's: The bed is actually super comfortable, the television is good, check in and check out was quick and efficient. Housekeeping was well done and I always came back to a very clean room. 10-15 minute walk to Gowrie train station. Con's:...

For a very basic stay that is away from all the traffic chaos of Melbourne city, then this is the one. It is in relative close proximity to the airport and transit as well. Accessibility is poor as there is no lift to haul anything above the first level. Great value overall at $89/night.

“We had a room facing a wall. Views are rubbish but it was a quiet nights sleep”

“Rooms on the north side have the best view, but are noisy. South-facing rooms are the quietest, but you'll be facing a brick wall.”
