Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room was neat and tidy and comfortable. Although found had to run aircon when in room as it tended to get stuffy when not on. Managers most helpful. Close to public transport and Bell St. Easy access to city and suburbs.

We have family in Thornbury, and this is a convenient place to stay when visiting them. Clean, quiet, reasonably priced room. Free parking. Reception staff are very pleasant. KFC and Subway over the road. Tram stop just outside.

We stayed for two nights whilst visiting Melbourne. Made to feel welcome, the room was perfect for our needs. Comfortable and clean throughout. Tram stop right outside the Motel with very easy access to the city centre and beyond. Mykie cards available from the motel for use on the trams.

I was really impressed with the size of the rooms, which included a sofa, dining table, fridge, and beautiful bathroom. They have plenty of parking, and it's right by a tram stop if you're heading into the city. Comfy bed and friendly staff, what's not to like?!

Our second time at this very good Motor Inn. It’s not in the CBD of Melbourne but with the excellent transport system it might as well be. Large room with all the amenities we stayed a week and was there mostly to just sleep. If you’re looking for something a bit out of the CBD and like to use public transport, give this place a go. Reasonably priced and recommended.

Perfect location. A little bit out of town, but tram stop right outside your door. Rooms were big, with a renovated bathroom. Staff were friendly and room serviced everyday. Can't rate it highly enough Restaurants located about a 10 minute walk away, but local restaurants offer delivery

We stayed at St Georges Motor Inn for ten nights at the end of March and over the Easter period. It is a great position for exploring Thornbury High Street restaurants, bars and shops. A tram stop is at the door and Thornbury Station a short walk. We were able to park at the door of our room and despite the location the room was quiet, spacious and spotlessly clean. The room had all amenities, and we especially enjoyed the garden view and bird watching from the large rear window. David was very helpful when we first made our booking and during our stay. Bob was on the front desk when we arrived and very helpful also while we were there. We visit our daughter frequently are looking forward to our next stay.

Only stayed one night, but we were most impressed that this quality accommodation is available at such a good location at such a low price. Drive your car right up to your door is a plus too. Spotlessly clean inside and out with all amenities in a large room in great condition. We'll be back.

I travel to Melbourne weekly for work and this is the place I choose to stay. The rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable and the staff are welcoming and helpful. There is breakfast on site, which I plan to try one morning when I don't have to be out at 6am. The location is very hand and even thought it's on a busy road, it is reasonably quiet after 10pm or so. This is my new home away from home!!

My daughter gave birth to a child last Friday & my wife & I needed accommodation reasonably close. I found the St. Georges Motor Inn via Trip Advisor and contacted them. David on the front desk when I rang was very amenable great to talk to. I asked for a ground floor unit with a shower recess because my wife is not to good on her pins. When we arrived there, Bob was behind the desk (Colingwood supporter) and on booking in offered me a disabled room which suited me perfectly. The Restaurant was snot open that night but they had plenty of suggestions and gave me a Chinese restaurant menu and said they deliver free. Which they did. I would suggest to anyone you could not go past this establishment. Bonza!
