The smoke detector wasn’t working when we checked in, but was fixed quickly upon request. The paint on the ceiling in the en-suite was peeling off and falling to the floor from the humidity in the room. There was no room safe, which would have been a welcome addition, given that the service staff were entering the room each day to replenish towels, etc. otherwise, it’s a convenient location for western Melbourne, it was clean, reception staff were friendly and for the money, a good, basic room to rest in after a day of activity.
