                              The motel fulfill my special request without any problems, I.E. early check-in, and late check-out. And because I suffer from insomnia, and had requested the quietest room, the motel was wonderful in giving the quietest room possible. I really appreciated this. Also love the fact that the tram stops literally in front of the motel, so it's 'a skip, a hop, and a jump' to get into the city centre with a short tram ride!

                              Nothing of major issue. Only the cold water top in the shower fell out every time I had a shower, that's more funny than annoying.

                              This was our 3rd stay at this motor inn. It is convenient to the city, tram right outside door, not far from Sydney Road shops and restaurants. The Motor Inn had been upgraded since our last stay, very clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly. We will be returning again, I would recommend this Motor Inn.

                              close to trams, proximity to my destination, well equipped apartment ,and cleanliness of it.

                              nothing to dislike. was good value for money.

                              The room had all that was required. In booking there should be a statement re the multi storey nature of the motel and no lifts. People with climbing difficulties might not be able to negotiate 3 flights of stairs. Meal delivery was delivered as requested and very tasty. Cleaners did a good jobn. Staff were pleasant, friendly and effecient.

                              There needs to be a lift to allow people to use upper floors if they have a walking disability. Carrying heavy luggage up 3 flights of stairs is not fun and potentially dangerous.

                              The beds were really comfortable and we had everything that we required. The kitchenette was clean and had all that we needed. The room was large and we had free parking in the area under the rooms.

                              We felt that the hotel was expensive for the standard of the room. It was older style and quite noisy. Most of the noise was from the road outside the hotel. We really needed the internet, but it was very expensive so we didn't use it. For the money that we paid per night ( $165), there was a large room with a kitchenette and free parking, but for the age of the hotel and its fittings we paid way too much. Breakfast was not included and had we ordered this, the room would have been about $190 a night. This is what we normally pay for a 5 star hotel in Europe, and this hotel while comfortable and adequate was not anywhere near being a 5 star hotel.

                              We requested a quiet room and it was. The Motor Inn has been refurbished. The staff were pleasant and allowed us to leave our car in the shade for the day whilst we caught a tram into Melbourne.

                              Lack of a lift.

                              We had to get cabs to and from equitana, would be awesome if we could have got a tram easily

                              We liked the reception area and the staff who were very knowledgeable and helpful and we particularly liked the tasteful room we had which was both comfortable and pleasant.

                              We thought that the exterior needed some maintenance and noted that painting was underway.. The stairwell also could be better cleaned and refurbished.
