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.

Having to stay somewhere to visit family and the usual places we stay were unavailable, we thought of Eltham. Our son likes Eltham and he and his partner go there often for coffee. The photos on another site looked nice so we booked. We get there and there is a big sign, “Up for lease or re-development “. The receptionist was friendly and we were given a room at the back. The pool area didn’t look enticing and the filter? kept making loud noises. The room was basic but everything we needed. Could have done with a little more cleaning as window sills had dead bugs on them and they were there for all 4 days. Husband looked at BBQ area, sadly very neglected. We did have a table and two chairs outside. One chair disappeared and cobwebs covered the underside of the other chair and table. There is nothing within walking distance to get a drink or something decent to eat.

There is not much available in the Eltham area where I was visiting family. Stayed 8 nights and it was OK. Very convenient to everything in Eltham and surrounds. Inexpensive, about $110 a night (is more when there is a wedding on nearby when it gets full up I think). My wife stayed with me 5 days and we managed but she would not stay there again. Was busy the first few days and parking was very tight in the units at the back of the motel, I had to back all the way out to the front units to turn around. My room at the back of the motel was spacious with bench to eat at (no table and chairs), nice couch, was self contained in that it had a microwave and kitchen sink and basic plates, glasses and cutlery for 2. Room serviced every day and vacuumed I think twice in the week. Was a bit cold but air con did the job after a while (it was a freezing Melb. week when I stayed) and electric blanket was great. Some things could be better, microwave was very old (still worked) most towels were very thin and 1 extra pillow was very worn and tatty so we didn't use it, chairs had some small holes in the vinyl cover. Also a couple of loose power points on the brickwork walls of the room. For the money, I think it was OK and fit for purpose but not for everyone if you can afford something better and happy to stay out of Eltham.

Stayed here for a local appointment. The room was ok. Shower had great pressure. But the room was really cold. The air conditioner was old and past it's date, so not able to warm the room sufficiently. Without the heated blankets this would get zero stars right now.

Stayed here for a week due to my daughters wedding. Great location for the reception which was just across the road. The rooms are very basic. The hotel website said breakfast was available but after asking the managers who were very nice. I was told they hadn’t cooked food for over a year. The website also said a coin operated laundry. This was also not the case. Though they did offer to put a load through with the towels

This is a good Motel, rooms are clean, service is excellent. It is in a good location, not far from the main shops in Eltham. The best thing about this Motel is that our grandson has an assistance dog, which the Motel welcomed, there was not problem with her staying. We were very grateful for this.

Selected this motel as it was located conveniently to the places I had to visit when visiting Melbourne. The room was a good size and the air conditioning was good. I was given a room right at the back so it was very quiet.

The good points: - friendly customer service - great water pressure - aircon worked in our room - cheap @ $90 per night - wifi included The not-so-good: - our room was dark with little natural light (rm 114) - the room was tired, run down & needs a good clean (the windowsills were covered in dead insects, shower was mouldy) - the room was not vacuumed during our 9 night stay - the bed was a very small double - not very comfortable for 2 adults. - no drawers in the room - we had to live out of our suitcases The target market of this motel appears to be tradesmen. I wouldn't recommend it for a family or couple on holiday.

We stayed here for 4 nights for a sporting trip. We booked a spa room for myself and my daughter. The room was a lot bigger than i thought it would be and the spa was an amazing size my daughter loved it but it did take a long time to fill up. The one site breakfast was average, the room was clean and warm enough in August. The shower and water pressure was amazing and really helped with the cold days. Overall I like this place and found it to be quiet comfortable.
