Probably better than average

by MelbourneTravelmad on 29 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

I booked this hotel as I needed a place in the area for several nights. Yes its old, and yes its got a bit of history to it, some of it not too good, but convenience won over. I was surprised at the room, it was clean it was well maintained, and the bathroom looked like it had recently been modernized as the fitting and tiles were all up to fashion stuff. One thing about the room though, it was cluttered with 2 beds, a wardrobe, a desk, a storage unit, and a table and chairs. Not sure all this i...

what a dive

by John S on 03 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Our room had lights not working, a toilet seat hanging on by a bolt, multiple carpet stains, peeling paint on the cupboards, a dirty bath and rude staff. To top it off when we departed at 6:30 am and gave our key in to someone sitting at desk in reception who told us to leave it with him, we were told later he was a scammer and we should have recognized him as such. The place was unattended and unsecured and according to the management we just should have known he was not a staff member. Yeah? T...

Cheap Digs and that's what we expected.

by andone4theroad on 24 Oct 2016 (Family Traveller)

We all hear that old saying "you get what you pay for" and this applies to the City Park Hotel. We needed a cheap nights accommodation in the city and thats what we got. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the TV & the heater worked. The bathroom was clean & the water hot. Ok it isnt the Stamford or the Windsor, but for the money we spent, it was good value. Yes it is in need of a freshen up but , hey were the 70's that bad?Our room was to the rear of the building so there was no tra...

Worst place and rude staff

by Kathleen K on 22 Oct 2016 (Family Traveller)

Never..i repeat NEVER stay at the CITY PARK MOTEL in South Melbourne. Checked in at 9.30pm last night with my 2 daughters for the night. After getting in the room and realising that the heating wouldnt work on any setting, then my daughter stepped on the carpet under bed and the carpet was wet through and part of her bedding that touched the floor (they must of left window open when it rained and then pushed bed over to hide it). Tried to ring reception from the phone but it didn't work either....

Loud, unclean, overpriced and rude

by Cai R on 28 Sep 2016 (Couple Traveller)

This is really the only way I can describe this place. The moment I got there, was rudely told that I had to be re-located to a different hotel area. Rooms way worse than the pictures on the website. Rooms were cold, heater didn't work, bathroom and floor was unclean. Noise from construction work was unbearable in the morning. When raising this to the manager in the morning he was unsympathetic and told me this is to be expected in peak periods. Will avoid like the plague....
