Stayed here for a night. Cheap price for 3. And that is what you get. Location is good. Walking distance from train station. Room def outdated. Like an old hotel room. Cleanliness is not evident. I've stayed in the room only for few hours nd something bit ne in the eye. Bed bug? Maybe. To store a luggage is $2 per item. Will i stay here again? If i have no other choice.

WE had four nights here in October, our first stay in Melbourne. Very convenient after flying in from Perth and via Skybus to Southern Cross Station across the road. Easy check-in but the first time to our room was a bit funny going up to go down!! Our room was large and the bed comfy and the street noise was minimal, so we had good nights sleep....well located to walk anywhere Southbank, Docklands, Draculas, Victoria markets and just s short stroll to the CBD and Chinatown...we also have stayed in the G. S. in Sydney and we were not disappointed in Melbourne...thank you TEAM...

Stayed: October 2017

Great location. Basic rooms not the cleanest, alot of wear and tear as walls badly marked. Had to wear flip flops in shower as it didnt look clean. Toilet brush was disgusting. Beds not very comfortable with only one pillow. Would not return.

The motel was right across the road from Southern Cross Station. The room was good but the tv was in an awkward position as you couldn’t watch it from bed. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay here again when transiting through Melbourne.
