“Great Budget Motel in the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

Everytime we visit Melbourne we stay here. I have stayed in most of the rooms and room number 20 is the only one that is not very good. We have been visiting this motel for the last 11 years and the same chinese people still run it today, they are lovely people and very helpful. In that time, I have seen it become busier and busier and it is nearly always fully booked now, so the best advice is book early!

Price is $88 per night for 2 people, this includes continental breakfast in your room and the Herald Sun.
Motel has undercover parking and is a tram ride away from the CBD. It's also very easy to find being not far from the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
Rooms are basic, but clean. Rooms have small kitchenette with microwave toaster and fridge. You do need to arrive before 10pm.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2011

A 2 star hotel close to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Women's Hospital. $88 a night for a double room, with a breakfast tray. No frills and an old building. Not refurbished since WWII but good for a quick stay. Not a bad fallback option.
