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.

We stayed for 8 nights as we were attending a sporting event nearby at Black Rock. 10 mins drive away. The staff took care of our requests for a microwave oven in the room, ice tray ( no ice available in the whole hotel on our first night, even at the bar) and our room servicing was not done on one day, and a bit rough and ready on another day.
Really cheap Happy Hour ! Only a 15 min walk to Westfield shopping centre and more shops on Highett Rd no too far away. Parking was adequate but the entrance has a height restriction of 2.5m, although there is a side entry with a gate that the staff are happy to open if required ( we had a boat on our roof).
Laundry facilities available at the rear of the property that opens at 9am ( I am unsure why they have restricted hours of use though. Washing line also nearby the laundry. $3.00 per use for both washer (1 x $2.00 -1 x $1.00 coins, runs for 30mins) and Dryer ( 3 x $1.00 coins required, runs for about 45 mins).
The place generally needs a spruce up, especially around the pool area as we would have liked to have used the BBQ but definitely was not accessible.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall our stay was good, comfortable.
Really liked the location.

I’ve just spent the last 6 nights in this motel. Great location and more importantly nice friendly and helpful staff. The motel is only a short walk to Highett Shopping centre where you find great local cafes and the train station.

Definitely would rebook for my next stay.

Booked and paid for 4 nights including 4 breakfasts. Whilst the Nepean Highway and railway line noises are fairly well suppressed the noise inside the courtyard destroys the possibility of a decent nights sleep. Loud cars arriving and leaving at all hours, guests talking loudly and thumping up and down stairs. The outside laneway lights are not properly shielded from the rooms either. Breakfast is of average quality, not restocked half the time and cold in the main despite being in bain maries. On Tuesday we rang to book the restaurant which was confirmed. Arrived at 7-00 pm to be told restaurant was not open on Tuesdays. Claimed they tried to contact us which was rubbish as there was no messages on either our room phone or my wife's mobile which they had. We resorted to Uber eats and had to go and ask for cutlery as the room did not have any. The shower is terrible and fluctuates in temperature between scalding and freezing. When we went to check out the girl at reception told me we owed another $38, could not tell what it was for as I told her we had paid UP FRONT for room and breakfasts. Said she would consult with her manager, told her I had better not see a $38 charge on my card. She giggled when I told her our stay had been anything but pleasant, pretty much sums it up at this place. We have to come back to the area on the weekend and have booked the Quest, will never return to this joke of a hotel.

Have stayed at this property 15 times since 2012 and this would be the first time I have not rated above 4.5. Rooms are tired and in need of refurbishment; cleaning is inadequate. On the plus side saved by excellent front office staff who respond quickly and also restaurant staff and food good. Location is excellent for my needs. Disappointing management and cleaning staff. One or both washing machines have been out of service last two visits. Lost its mojo.

Sadly, the photos make the hotel look better than it really is. Its old and my room especially was in need of an update. I am a very easy traveller and do not require or request much except safe which it was, quiet which it was, clean which it was not. Furnishings were dusty and the carpet had holes in it. On the bright side if they have the $15 buffet breakfast that's great value except it only opens at 7.00 am.
Would I stay there again probably not as it was a last option and I dont think its value for the money for the room quality.

This is a very friendly and comfortable place to retreat to and unwind. Very few traffic issues, very friendly staff and extremely helpful. The booking process was professional and when I had a TV Remote issue, it was fixed while I ate dinner in their very nice Restaurant. Happy to recommend this to anybody who wants to unwind. Plenty of retail therapy nearby also.

We stayed at this Best Western over a long weekend in March and the place was packed. Our room was fine … clean, comfy bed, etc. We had parking right at our door. We passed on the $19-$28 breakfast and strolled 5 mins to a cafe in Highett for coffee brekky. Good eastern suburbs location, good value for money.

Stayed recently in a two bedroom apartment. Very helpful when we asked if we could get foxtel set up in our room - it isn't usually in the room type we had but they were very obliging. The sent someone to our room and arranged connection so that we could watch the football!!

We stayed here and were advised of a third lockdown in Victoria. We made the decision to cancel our booking for a second night and the staff were completely sympathetic of our plight and happily refunded our second night's accommodation.
We also dined in the restaurant on our first night and the food was excellent, the staff were very efficient and friendly. The breakfast also was great, delivered promptly as requested and was very satisfying. We will definitely stay there again when the opportunity arises.
