This motel is ideally situated, out of town but on a tram route that takes you into the city in minutes. We found it to be very quiet with sufficient parking, but the most memorable part of our visit was the polite and attentive reception we received from the owner/manager. We had breakfast in the spacious dining room each day...

We arrived a day late following flight delays and 23 hours of travelling not knowing what to expect. Upon arriving at the Melbourne Southern Cross transportation center we found that the St. Georges Motor Inn was located directly on a tram line that we got less than a block from the terminal. When we got to the hotel we were...

Decent motel, with the standard settings and decor. There was enough space for a small table, which was a nice bonus. Nothing particularly memorable about the place. Easily accommodated late check-ins.

Although it is on a busy rd, there was very little noise. Tram out front, fast food across the rd, 2 mins walkaway. Shopping plaza and Preston market approx 7-8 mins...

Overall the hotel is quite nice. Unfortunately we could hear the tv from next door going most of the night through the walls. Traffic was also a problem for noise very early in the morning. Would prefer toilet rolls not sheets. Would like to see them take credit card payments without charging a surcharge

This motel has seen better days, but it is good value and in a convenient location. We were satisfied with our family room. It had enough space for the four of us. Overall, it is a good option for a short stay.
