This motel is in the Bayside area of Melbourne and is very good value. There is also a wedding/conference centre at this motel but although it is located just off a major roadway, we found access very good and the motel section quiet. Our queen room was very well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Free parking on site, and there...

I stayed here with my husband for 3 nights and was pleased with the experience at this hotel. We arrived very late on the first night and checked out very early on the final day but the night reception staff was available on both occasions.

Super room, super Staff and no request was too much trouble. Based 7 mins walk from Highett train station with a cool shopping centre around the corner and a massive Westfield down the street (10 mins walk). You need to consider this for your next stay in Melbourne; I have already referred close Friends there for future trips to MEL.

Ideal pace to stop off, if visiting this side of Melbourne, easy access to the Dandanong region and the beaches in this area. We were visiting family so was spot on for us.

Excellent motel that has been upgraded. Stayed on numerous occasions. Exec. rooms are clean and well serviced. Staff are excellent. Free parking is a big bonus. Breakfast is very good without going over the top. Highly recommend it for that short stay of three or four days.
