I stayed here for 10 nights, which i booked through travelsupermarket.com as they were the cheapest. We stayed here when we emmigrated to melbourne whislt we looked at houses to live in. For location it was great. I wanted somewhere between the city (which is a 15mins drive) and where we planned to live.
On the front, the motel looks ok, but looks a bit dingy once you get to the back where you park the car. We were kindly upgraded to a superior room on arrival which was quite nice. It was clean and nicely decorated. Had a fridge, microwave and kettle. Lots of free recent movies to keep my little one happy.
Free parking. Breakfast was plentiful with a good selection. Staff was friendly.
Fairly quiet during the day but a fair bit of noise at night with people smoking on the landings outside of rooms, and shouting and laughing late at night when people arrived.
Internet very expensive at $10 per day. Request a room on the ground floor if you have alot of luggage as there is no lift!
Its an ok motel and our experience was ok, though not sure i would recommend to anyone, as i wouldnt want to be held responsible for an average experience.
