I've stayed at the Arden every December for the past 5 years and have absolutely no hesitation recommending it to anyone. As Tassie said, it's a budget motel and no more than 3 stars, but it's fantastic value for money for anyone driving to Melbourne. I've NEVER encountered a problem with the cleanliness of the rooms and it's perfectly located - walking distance to the city (20 mins to Bourke St), local shops/restaurants and even the Zoo. Don't be put off by the overly critical or hard-to-please overseas tourists.
