Definitely an older motel and the facilities are aging but the room was comfortable, bed was nice and comfortable. The curtains didn't keep all the light out which was a bit annoying.

Quite, quaint, quomfortable.
The motel is rather dated but the room and bed was comfortable and quiet. The room had a separate bedroom along with a separate toilet inside the bathroom. For the price it was very good value and I would stay again if I needed a cheap room for the night.

The motel is well positioned close to the central city. It is away from the student quarter so quieter. It is easy to acess motorway. It is easy to acess st kilda and waterfront and the large format stores. Only thing that went wrong leak in bedroom, owner fixing it. A night of heavy rain.
