Frankston Motel

Reviewed 3 February 2013

Easy to find. We really appreciated the continental breakfast which was unexpected! Apart from a noisy fridge (room 19) our overnight stay was pleasant. We were not bothered by traffic noise as our room was away from the main road, by request.

Room Tip: Always request a room away from the road for a quieter night!

We recently stayed at the Frankston Hotel, in one of the family suites. We had two adjoining rooms that were clean and quite spacious.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The location is great geographically, especially for getting around the peninsula, however (and I appreciate that this is a motel) the highway is right outside the window. While the noise was barely noticeable during the day and in the evening, morning traffic was.

This was a minor inconvenience, for what was largely a positive experience.

I Have mixed feelings about this Motel.
We were a couple and 2 adult children. I was totally shocked that the family room was open plan, being double bed, 2 x single beds, dining table and kitchenette all in one. I have since been informed that this is the standard layout for Australia. However it was great value for the 2 nights we stayed. Complimentary bread, cereal, coffee, tea, milk, jam, and butter. The unit was very clean and on our second day the unit had been completely cleaned and replenished. Manager was very friendly and helpful.
We had a quiet room off the main highway but we were next to where the truckies parked for the night.........and they leave early.
On returning from our holiday, I am curious as to why we were charged on the day we booked (a week earlier) rather than on the day we checked out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway. Best to have your own car

We stayed one night at this Motel on the Mornington Peninsula to allow for an early start for French Island. The room had a double bed, which was comfortable, small tv, table and chairs, toaster, kettle microwave and fridge. At check-in, which was quick and efficient, we were given 2 lots of white bread for toast in the morning. Milk and cereal were in the room along with butter and jams. The free tea and coffee was very generous. The room was OK for one night and the cost of $89 was reasonable. It's next to a busy main road and the traffic woke me early in the morning but it wasn't too bad. Overall it was a budget motel at a budget price and I was satisfied with it. Good if you are passing through. The larger rooms near the pool looked spacious. The motels 'no party' policy is good. A few Tradies staying there.

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the busy main road.

this is a clean tidy and decent motel to stay! they provide you a small dinning table, microwaves, kettle and toaster which is very much appreciated. the reception is still open after 9pm when i approached them for a defaulted kettle and i got a new one replaced right away, so could enjoy a cup of hot tea in the room. the reception is very friendly.
some rooms are facing the main road, i requested a quiet room when i booked the motel 1 month before my travel, and they put me in one of the rooms which are away from the main road, so that i really appreciated this.
will definitely come back again if travel back in frankston.

Room Tip: request a room not facing the main road if quietness is important to you.

Stayed here for one night for work.. Very helpful owners at reception, rooms were clean and due to not being completely booked they upgraded my room for free. Good all-round motel, wouldn't hesitate about coming back.

Nothing fancy but clean in reasonable condition. The walls are freshly painted - have practical, adequate furniture and bedding. Water pressure in the shower is good - the team at the hotel exhibit genuine family friendliness - nice outdoor pool.
