One of few near city hotels with free and plentiful parking, good free wifi, clean and simple room. Low cost, friendly staff, next to supermarket, near city - all plus points. The night manager was also cheerful and helpful.

Was an ok place to spend one night on our trip. Could have been fixed up a bit as its rundown and clearly just keeps being patched up to stay operating. Bed was uncomfortably soft and linen smelled strongly of bleach. Toilet paper was a single sheet dispenser which is ridiculous in this day and age. Only really acceptable as...

We have stayed here a few times and never been disappointed. The location opposite Princes Park is perfect for the morning after a big night. The location at the top of Sydney Road means that there is delicious food super close. There is a supermarket nearby. The staff have always been friendly and helpful with late check out being offered...

Both convenient to the CBD and with much amenity in the direct surroundings, this motel was great for us and our one-year old. The studio room with its kitchen accommodated us well, was well appointed and nicely finished. The bathroom and kitchen were fully renovated with good ventilation and fittings. Parking on-site was directly below our room, so very convenient,...

The Princes Park Motor Inn is a great place to stay as it is only a short tram ride into the cbd and the tram stop is right beside the motel. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable and the staff are amazing. There are some great shops in the area and a couple of supermarkets within easy walking...

We recently stayed with a 6,4 and 10 month old. We regularly stay at this Best Western for its location, parking, customer service and cleanliness. Good family friendly restaurants close by, great shopping centre with supermarkets, medical centre and Princes Park across the road for the kids to stretch their legs. This time we stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment...

Although this motel is not in the CBD, it is handy to the tram line. You can catch the number 19 tram at stop 19. It takes you along Sydney Road and then onto Elizabeth Street. We were in the older building which was comfortable enough except for the soft bed. Tea and coffee facilities are available in the room....

We took the family of 5 to Melbourne for a quick visit and stayed in Parkville. The location of the hotel is great - right at the top of Princes Park and right next to the #19 tram line on Sydney Rd. There is plenty of eating and shopping locations nearby. A great place to stay if you like to...
