I stayed at this motel because it was close to the venue in Collingwood where I was holding an event. Unfortunately it wasn't a very pleasant experience and I would definitely not return.
The rooms are very basic, breakfast is a couple of bread slices and cereal packs left on a tray in your room. There is a long corridor in between the rooms - when I stayed, the lights out were kept on all night and it was quite bright in the room even with the curtains shut.
The fact that you're right on the corridor also means that you hear every single noise.
The other thing I didn't like was the fact that the main entrance was open all night and it didn't feel very safe - there was no security and nobody at reception.
On the plus side, the room was clean and spacious. Facilities like iron, kettle, toaster and hardyer were all provided.
If you're just looking for a place to crash one night, it will do the job but I feel there are plenty of nicer options in Melbourne for the price you pay here.
