“Location Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Excellent location and friendly, helpful staff. What more could you ask for except a mould free shower (this is still an ongoing issue which really needs to be addressed)! With plenty of dining experiences within easy (very easy) walking distance you don't miss having a fully fledged restaurant in the hotel. For a weekender or a longer stay where you don't want or need the luxuries of a 4 or 5 star hotel, Travelodge certainly meets expectations.Excellent value for money and definitely recommend to stay at for a no frills, well located and reasonably priced hotel.

Pick up cheap deal through the internet for this hotel which included breakfast. Hotel is great location within walking distance to casino and southbank. Breakfast was average and was cafeteria type food. Hotel has an arrangement for parking with carpark over the road and is only $12 for 24 hours with discount from reception but staff do not tell you about this unless you ask. Rooms are basic and reasonable clean.

Stayed here for one night on a “late-in/early-out” business trip, so limited in use of any facilities.

However, check-in and check-out service was efficient and pleasant. Rooms are standard Travelodge fare and are functional, if a little uninspiring. Yes, the rooms are basic and the inclusions are limited but, ultimately, if you are looking for cheap accommodation in the Southbank/Crown areas of Melbourne then this would be a good choice.

Happy to stay here again for future short business trips.

Normally you get what you paid for and in this case we didnt pay for much, however I was pretty happy with what we got! If you arent planning on spending much time in your hotel room and want to be central to food and shopping this place is sensational. Yes the hotel and rooms are basic, however they are clean, quiet, modern and spacious, the cooked breakfast in the mornings was pretty good, nothing flash but was a great start. Parking is the only tricky bit to staying at this hotel. Id certainly stay again for a weekend visit.

This is about the 4th or 5th time we have stayed here so we must like it to keep coming back. We love the location which is within walking distances of all the good things to see and do in Melbourne and just a short stroll to great bars, the main train station etc. I think the staff are an asset to the hotel and only have positive experiences with the front desk. When we tried to check in early we warmly greeted and assured that we could check in straight away. Because we had requested a specific room it was not yet cleaned but Michael rang house keeping straight away to make sure it was a priority. I also notice that they are proudly displaying their "very good" Tripadvisor rating at check in. After all the positive experiences we have encountered at this hotel I have 2 slight grumbles from this stay. Like the other reviewers, we also found the air con very noisy. The units must be getting old. I'm sure we would have been shifted to another room if we had asked but luckily it was mild weather so we simply switched it off. The other problem was the pillows. They were horrible and flat and I did get a bit of a sore neck sleeping on them (not really fond of using the suede cushions they provide as they do not have pillowcases that can be changed and am sure are just decoration). I suppose for what you pay for this hotel, and we only paid $114 a night via the hotel website, you can't expect the luxury of a pillow menu as the Holiday Inns provide. Would these factors stop us from staying here again, no. The price, location and staff are well worth us coming back to.

Room Tip: We also choose a room on the 4th floor with 2 double beds

Once again thank you for your kind feedback and I am very glad you enjoyed your stay again with us. I will be sure pass your compliments onto my team of whom I am very proud.

In relation to the points you have raised I have addressed your concerns with the relevant departments to improve our overall guest experience. I also am in the process of purchasing 175 new air con units. We did 100 last year. I have just ordered new pillows and we will start with the process of getting them into the rooms once they arrive.

I look forward to welcoming you back to Travelodge Southbank in the near future. Stop by the front desk next time you stay and say hi.

Kind regards,
