Travelodge Southbank Melbourne
Cnr Southgate Ave / Riverside Quay, Southbank
"Location cant be beat. Walking distance to tennis stadiums. One negative - free wifi - is not really free. Although not stated in expedia booking, the free wifi is for 100MB only. You might think this sounds like a lot, but after checking email and facebook once, I maxed out - took just under 10 minutes. And then you are locked out for 24 hours, unless you pay more money. $9.95 for some more MB. I wasn't trying to stream a movie or anything - just trying to download my emails. And my son needed to check his emails and couldn't. So I sent him down to the lobby where there is a computer with wifi connection and he checked there. I have never experienced this "free-wifi" issue with any other hotel I have stayed at in the US, Mexico, Australia, or Europe. Free wifi should mean free wifi. So what otherwise would have been a fantastic stay at this hotel, is marred by this "bait and switch" wifi experience. Would rather them just raise the price of the room $9.95 than try to charge extra after 10 mnutes of usage. "
