Very basic room, for $90 a night you would expect the rooms to at least smell decent. Not the case unfortunately. Do yourself a favour and pay the extra $20/$30 for a nicer place somewhere else. Pillows might as well of been none existent. They...More

As I live in Werribee and was meeting with someone from the city, I needed a place that was halfway between the two. This motel was both conveniently located and excellent value. I would definitely stay here again.

About
Description
The Guiding Star Hotel was constructed in about 1930, incorporating an earlier building related to the undeveloped village of Brooklyn. Built on a Spanish Mission style, stuccoed, two-storey hotel, with More Cordova tiles to a hipped roof and eaves broken by projecting parapets above the two side entries and the main corner entry. The Guiding Star is the last standing Hotel in Brooklyn. The Guiding Star Hotel Motel is of local historical and architectural significance as a relatively large and elaborate hotel built to serve the arterial traffic of the Geelong Road, and the industrial activities in the Brooklyn area. The Guiding Star Hotel Motel is a complete venue with the traditional pub grub food, entertainment, accommodation, a Thirsty Camel Bottle Shop and its own Coffee Shop, Brewed Awakening. It caters for the workmanlike crowd, truck drivers, tradies and travellers on their way to Melbourne seeking an affordable, clean and tidy accommodation. The Motel has been recently renovated. Includes 20 accommodation units with air conditioning, TV with FOXTEL, double glass window, comfortable bed, hot shower, clean Bathroom and plenty of parking space. It is conveniently located close to the Avalon Airport and just 11km from Melbourne CBD. The point of difference is the Pub next door providing a reasonably priced full bistro menu, cold beer and entertainment. The Bottle Shop and Coffee Shop come in handy for those seeking a bargain. The friendly staff is plus. Less
