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.

Our stay was OK in as much as the bed and bathroom were acceptable for the price. - when the price is $125 or so. The trick is while they advertise $125 a night, Friday and Saturday night the prices goes off the scale. So read your proposal, even if you're in a rush. There are lot better rooms around at around $200 or more. We stayed 4 nights and extended another - a Saturday. (Family matters nearby). The gentleman said $120 for the extra night but when I got my statement it was $189! It was then I realised I was charged that for Friday too. Re-educated in touch and go and not bothering with the receipt. Sure these prices are not exorbitant in this day an age - for a reasonable establishment. While in the room the basics were reasonable, the room had a toaster and microwave but no bread plates or cutlery, only small bowls. Asked at reception and was give some disposable cutlery and pasta bowls . Great for toast! Apparently people keep stealing them or breaking them. So charge them and have something reasonable for reasonable people! The door didn't latch either without a heft with your shoulder and then caught only by millimetres. The chain was on and the chairs in place, don't worry. The room was only serviced once during our stay after we asked. The garbage truck came at 4.00Am or so and emptied multiple skips just nearby (on the premises) with all the beeping and backing, hydraulic whining, and diesel roaring you'd probably accept at $120 odd dollars a night, but really? My partner was ready to walk in the first five minutes with her usual abuse of my miserliness. As you might have guessed, the pricing issue is what really gets up nose. The rest you probably expect and accept for a cheaper deal. But next time we're near Lilydale we may well pay $189 but we'll be looking for $189 value.

Reception not friendly. Noise and partying all hrs of night, motorbike revving continuously all night. Loud voices outside my room and up and down ramp all night. Realised this was not from guests but that people live there, cld be housing commission. Didn't feel safe. Definately not a family environment. Rooms are clean tho, newly refurbished and nice but will never return again. It felt like a very shady hotel. In the morning we heard bags and bags of empty alcohol bottles being cleaned up. Awful environment for families and children. Reception didn't seem to care about guests. No smile or conversation upon arriving or leaving. Business only. I feel it's just about making money and there is zero care factor for their quests or reputation. My advice, do not go. I wish I saw reviews before going. I only saw them in the middle of the night as I was googling Econolodge Lilydale noise complaints. I was looking for a number to call then saw its reputation. Scary experience 😬

Was attending a wedding in the Yarra Valley Saturday 10 Sep 2022 and was looking for a motel not to expensive and had to be clean and comfortable. Well that is what I got with this place. Booked on line and got a special price of $151 for one night for two of us. We got an updated room upstairs. You can either walk up stairs or the is a ramp which very easy to walk. (Wheel chair friendly motel). the room was very clean with soft white towels in the updated bathroom. Sheet on the queen bed where white and nice and crisp. Comfy bed. Motel is set back from the Highway and there is NO traffic noise at all. Would stay here again.

Avoid this place if you can. Rooms were unkept and dirty. Room facilities were less than adequate. It is a budget motel in every respect. Cheap price = cheap service. Difficult to sleep with noise from other guests. We will chose elsewhere when we next visit Lilydale.

No. No. No. Arrived around 9pm. The smell of stale cigarettes, riff outside the room, the constant coming and going of vehicles obviously not guests. Packed up our belongings at 11:55pm and begun our journey to another hotel. What the hell. Is it a drug den? Arrive at new hotel 1am smelling like we had just done snow angels in an ash tray, gobsmacked at our terrifying experience. 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Stayed here as we had a wedding in Coldstream. From the outside the place looks like an old neglected motel but internal rooms have been renovated and are quite stunning. We were very happy with our room. Very comfortable bed. Very clean and presented well and all was sparking clean. We would stay again.

Excellent service by the new owners. Extremely comfortable bed, good clean sheets and covers with a spare clean, white blanket, in the wardrobe. Everything was sparkling clean including the glasses, which I checked expecting them to need washing. After reading previous reviews, I was sorry to have booked here but the new owners, explained that they had worked very hard to make the venue clean and comfortable for all guests. I was pleased that we decided to stay here.

Clearly this motel is under renovation. Rooms were very clean and bed comfy. Owners very kindly let us check in early to get ready for a nearby wedding. Our family booked 6 rooms. All with no complaint. Thanks for having us.
