This accommodation is located in a very convenient place to access both the Melbourne CBD as well as great cafes in North Melbourne. Walk to the lovely Errol Street for great coffee, breakfasts and delicious lunches. Jump on a tram for a quick trip into the CBD. Now for the down side of the Arden Motel: It's old and in... More

We stayed in a twin room at the very front of the hotel (room 2). When we first checked in, we were concerned about the noise from the street. However the traffic eased after about 10 pm and didn't disturb us through the night. This motel has everything one would expect from a motel (flat screen television, fridge, microwave, shower...

Within comfy walking distance to major hospitals - very handy for us from country Vic, needing to be in Melb. for day surgery. Suggest ask for the better rooms depending on yr budget. Be mindful there is no lift. Motel is old, fairly basic but room was clean and comfy. Onsite parking was a bonus, and the free continental breakfast... More

The motel is old, small rooms are shabby, no services. Have to lug baggage up stairs. Everything has deteriorated under new management. I have stayed there often but never again. Manager made up new parking rules, bullied me and threatened to tow away my car, ruined my trip when I had to move it. Avoid.Better choices nearby for similar prices

This was my 3rd visit. I had a room on 2nd floor this time. Room was smaller, air con loud and worked sporadically. Lounge was under the TV, so you had to either sit on a hard chair or the bed. Shower had pipe rattle when turning it on. Shower was good, but small. Bathroom was lit up all night... More

We have stayed here on numerous occasions over the years this was our worst visit. Come on guys spend some money and clean the rooms.

Based on the appearance on first entering the property it looked fairly dated and in much need of renovations outside as well as in the room. The check in went smoothly and Reception Staff was pleasant and happy to offer us a choice of nearby dining. I personally thought the cost a little high until I found continental breakfast was...

Great value for money. Staff very helpful and very friendly. Great location; close to hospitals, public transport, and the city centre. If you're looking for a bargain hotel, with all those old school trimmings, then this is your kind of place. Continental breakfast included in the price. Great value for money. Definitely would stay here again.
