“Renovation time and not a peaceful stay”
Reviewed 31 August 2011

The apartments are in dire need of some money spent on them. Our room had cracked tiles in the kitchen and the fridge leaked water. On book in we found no electric blankets as advertised. This was fixed by helpful staff. The room seemed dirty but that may be because its so old. Cups were cracked. Utensils looked like they came from the ark.
Obviously we chose a bad time to stay as the other patrons were noisy, (kids on skateboards with mum yelling at them down the stairs, Overseas football team that have no idea about being quiet). The style of the apartments lend themselves to being very noisy. The towels had holes in them and were threadbare. I doubt if we will stay here again.

A family of four, plus granparents stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. The kitchen and bathroom were adequate, the beds comfortable the lounge and dining area met our needs. The location is great - trams to the CBD outside the front door. We could walk to hockey and netballl centre and the park behind the motel. Servicing was very good. The price for the accommodation was reasonable with free parking. Would recommend

Room Tip: Comfortable and clean, without being luxurious

We had the 1 bedroom apartment (me and 2 friends) and just had the time of our lives. The cleaners were fantastic, always offering to service the apartment and even did our dishes. The heater was really noisy and couldnt decide whether it wanted to blow hot or cold, but everything else was perfect for what we needed. Would definitely stay again, thank you Park Squire. Tram just outside the door was awesome.

The first time I stayed here, I booked one of their motel rooms at the front ($80). Where to start with this night from hell! The room was small, furnishings sparse, damaged and tired and the room didn't smell fresh. The carpet showed a variety of stains, the tv reception was poor and the windows dirty. Bathroom was tiny with discoloured and chipped or broken tiles with fittings at least 30 years old. The constant and seemingingly magnified sound of the traffic on the freeway ensured a good night's sleep was never going to happen so it didn't even matter that the mattress was uncomfortable. Now for the positive! For approximately $25 extra, book an apartment instead. Although very ordinary from the outside, the 1 or 2 bedroom apartments at the rear of the complex are just lovely inside. I stayed there for a week with my partner and we were most comfortable during that time. The light and airy apartment offered a small, but modern and fully equipped kitchen, a quality QS bed, nice bathroom and a reasonably sized lounge with flat screen tv and internet points. The laundry facilities are on the ground floor which are coin operated. On site parking another bonus, as well as a tram stop right outside for a 5-10 min trip to the city. 15 minutes drive to Melbourne Airport. A very handy location. I recommend the Park Squire - apartment only though!

Room Tip: Do not book a room at the front of the complex!

We really appreciate your time to give your review to us.

However, we think that you may have posted your review in a wrong place because we do not have the room for $80 as mentioned in your comments. Our motel rooms have done a major renovation two years ago.

Most of our motel rooms are quiet and far away from the main road. Moreover, we always sell the front rooms at last and inform guests of the traffic noise in advance.

Again, we would like to thank you for posting your review.
