Best Western Plus Travel Inn Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This nicely located Travel Inn in the heart of Carlton just off Lygon Street was just what we were looking for. Just a 2 minute walk to good Italian restaurants and Cafés. The Travel Inn staff were all friendly and helpful. The limited carpark was a concern, but they arranged for parking next door in the Clock Tower carpark. The rooms are a good size with a King size bed and the bathroom nice, but a little on the small size. The only thing that I would say may need attention, is the Sardine Can Size Lift. If you ever stay here you will see. Haha.

room served the purpose for position, access to a medical appointment and general needs of a short stay. Room comfortable and staff friendly and helpful.. the stay fulfilled all of our requirements to a very high level.

First time stay in this hotel. Location very convenient but only booked it because I was assured the swimming pool was heated to 25 degrees. Yes, it is June, but the temperature would be scratching to be 15 degrees. When I enquired I was told they cannot turn up the heat because of council regulations. Very disappointed. Also there is not good sound-proofing around the windows and doors so quite noisy and hard to sleep.

If you don't know Melbourne. And there transport system The hotel is a bit out of way had to walk 5 blocks to get to the tram. Hotel a little dated website does not give true reflection of the rooms , although staff were friendly and helpful

Conveniently located, this hotel has large rooms with all the usual conveniences and very comfortable beds. The staff is professional and friendly and it is close to Lygon Street for cafés & restaurants. Onsite secure parking is available, whilst an airport shuttle can be arranged via starbus.

I stayed here with two mates to attend the GABS festival in May. We had a triple room on the third floor 332 and although it wasn't huge, the space was enough so we didn't feel we were sleeping on top of each other. The room was quiet and very clean. The beds comfortable and the bathroom had the basic amenities needed for our stay. The black out curtains made sleeping late easy as the room was totally dark til we opened them. The staff were friendly and the rooms serviced daily. The Italian precinct of Lygon Street was one street over and the University tram stop only another two over. Was a few minutes walk to the Exhibition Building where our event was being held. Only fault, no exhaust fan in the bathroom, there was only a vent. Otherwise our three night stay was great and I would definitely stay here again.

We were assigned a small but very confortable room in the ground level, conveniently located near laundry room for guests. The hot breakfast buffet was good but it was not not included with the room. It costed 25 AUD$. The hotel is located near an Italian neighborhood with many restaurants and shops. We used taxis to move quickly within the city and visit attractions, taxi fares within the city were reasonable except for the over $60 ADL we paid to/from the airport.

We are regular visitors of the travel inn & the standard has always been of a very high standard & consistent. Great location & value for money. No additional car parking charges is a bonus. Kids love the swimming pool.

Our stay of three nights was following a hospital visit. We experienced some noise in the corridor two nights in a row with what sounded like a coach party arriving very late and the following night them departing very early in the morning, with the coaches engine running for quite a while before departure. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay.

Great location, always clean linen and bathroom facilities and importantly, good friendly customer service. We are regular customers as we often go to events in and around Melbourne. Quick walk down to Lygon Street for great coffee or a meal is also a bonus.
