Neighborhood
The Travelodge Docklands is situated right next to the Southern Cross Railway Station in the heart of the city. Not only is the hotel easy to access, it's also easy to find if you ever lose your way-just look for the station. Ideal for sports fans, the Etihad Stadium is a short walk away, and hungry guests can enjoy a barbeque at the carefully-cultivated gardens inside Docklands Park. Short local trips are just a tram ride away from the nearby Southern Cross/Collins Street stop.
Hints and tips
Traveling for business? The Travelodge Docklands has two meeting spaces that can host up to 85 people.

getaway

I came to Melbourne for a conference and used this hotel as part of a good deal. The overall experience was fine though not special. The hotel is a bit too hidden away behind the Southern Cross station which was hard to find. The room was comfortable but things are bit minimal (eg hardly enough shampoo, no CNN or BBC channel). I still enjoyed it as the staff were very friendly.

Surprisingly this hotel is very pleasant. For the price (less than $100 per night), this hotel was very clean and convenient to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center (MCEC).

Good basic hotel in Docklands area

I was attending a conference at the convention center and this hotel was a 5-10 minute walk which was nice. The front desk employees were great and the rooms were basic. Had strange experiences with the minibar staff entering the room to check on whether things were taken each day. Having a refrigerator was nice for milk for cereal. No free wifi or internet access was a drawback.

Very good, but ...

This is an excellent hotel with great location for conference attendees. There is pedestrian bridge between hotel and the main train station. Airport gound transport is conveniently located very close to the train station. They charged extra for internet. They do not have gym in the hotel. I had to pay 15 AUD to hotel to go to nearby YMCA. If you directly go to YMCA, they charge 20 dollars. Breakfast was included in my package but I have eaten better breakfast before.

Visiting for a freind's 40th birthday party

Docklands location is good, but a visitor not familiar with the area might find it tough to get to the Docklands proper, or Southbank proper, as both are a short walk away, no clear directions in the lobby/room, and there isn't much in the immediate area. Hotel staff are very pleasant and helpful. Even though there were two of us in our room, we would need to call for the second washcloth and hand towel every day of our stay. You could get ice in a bowl by calling the front desk, but once our order was forgotten. Very helpful on return arrangements. (trip w/in a trip store baggage) It was noted that there wasn't a Gideon's Bible in the room.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Worth noting is that the Southern Cross Station is a short walk away, and the city tram is a block away. Melbourne has a very good transit system, and even though there isn't much in the direct area, it's just a short trip to most everywhere in the city.
