“old building but good service”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Walking distance from the Box Hill Hospital.
Spacious rooms and well equipped rooms.
The boy working in the front desk is very kind and gentle.
He helped us late check in at midnight with heavy luggage.
The building looks a little bit old but reasonable price with clean and tidy rooms.
This motel is running 24 hrs, good service, good location with convenient public transportation and Box Hill Shopping Center nearby.

Very dirty, smells of mold, my son and I are asthmatics and our allergies flared up before we got into the room. Tried to cancel our stay with the person there, but they refused, and were laughing at us. Tiny rooms, hardly any room. DEFFINATELY NOT RECCOMENDED. If you are looking for a hotel in this area I suggest Quest serviced apartments amont, just down the road, terrific staff and great rooms. The Maroondah hotel is deffinately not a pleasant place, it doesn't feel safe and is deffinately in need of a bull dozer.

Well if you think the rest of the reviews were bad, guess what? It's changed hands. And for the worse.
Now, as well as what everyone else has to say, you can expect gaggles of tourists arriving in the middle of the night, and screaming at each other at the top of their lungs. The management finds this normal because it is a cultural thing. Seriously. We got no sleep whatsoever, with doors slamming, yelling and cars coming and going. It is really something to behold. Stay away. (oh, and prices have gone up significantly from when Peter had it.)

The staff are pleasant enough but they don't enforce cleaning. The room stinks of mould and smoke. I got a rash from laying on top of the bed - and I don't have sensitive skin. The room stinks. The place is way overpriced, and might have been acceptable if it was $20 not $110. Handy to Box Hill if you need to be there for a specific reason, but Box Hill has nothing particularly interesting itself. If you do need to be in the area, there are other places in the area that are much better value although more expensive.

This is possibly the worst place I have ever stayed. Staff are friendly though. No complaint about them.

This place is something that needs to been seen to be believed! Front door wouldn't open, urine in the shower, whipped cream all over carpet ( well mum and dad think it was whipped cream lol), melted cheese still on grill, silver fish in crockery, and this was all in the only 10 minutes we were there... Had to leave as all in tears, but we knew they wouldn't see us return key into outside box as the windows were too filthy to see through.

Avoid this place, we stayed here because it was close to the hospital and thought it was cheap at $125 a night being from the country. Their was mold in the bathroom and the door handle was almost broken off on the front door, I didn't feel safe at this place at all. There was bits of food on the spare bed and the floors where dirty. The only good this about this place is where it is and even still i am never going back their and i advise you all to believe all these reviews this place needs to be taken down. The next day we booked in to the box hill motel a few minutes down the road for only $115 and was absolutely beautiful.
