Overnight stay returning to NS....
Room was terrible, no glasses, plates or cutlery ( had to request same from reception ). Curtains in room were ripped and curtains were dirty and missing hooks. The black couch had rips on it and was worn. Chairs had stains on them and microwave had stains and left over food on the carousel. Was going to use electric blanket as there were no extra blankets in the room but the remote was extremely dirty so went without. Also found empty can of drink under the bed. Sorry but I wouldn’t recommend this motel to anyone.

Somewhere to lay your head
Essendon Motel does not create a good impression, but it is not all bad. The grass out-front has not been cut for some time and the foyer is a bit tatty. The rooms, however, are quite good. There are no cooking facilities, but the rooms have a microwave, toaster and free wifi. Linen is changed daily, if requested. Apart from an acceptable bathroom, the motel has free parking for guests. The Essendon Motel is near the freeway, just over the road from Essendon Fields DFO. The room rate is reasonable, about $120 per night for a queen-sized room. Spotting the Essendon Motel is easy, it has an enormous Morton Bay Fig in front.

Would rather sleep in the car!
I do not like to give bad reviews but this place was so bad we didn’t even stay.
After staying in 7 motels the previous 8 nights we had experienced many different rooms, mostly all great and very clean, some a little outdated but still clean.
This place was old, run down, grotty, had broken and sagging beds, the fridge had a weird smell and the room itself smelt like a pub. I didn’t want to touch anything!
We felt uneasy being there from the beginning. The big “park at your own risk” signs in the car park aren’t very welcoming.
There were huge stinky ashtrays full of cigarette butts outside every room and a guy smoking right outside our door.
There were people yelling at each other outside our room.
Our 2 young children were not comfortable and said they would rather sleep in the car than stay there so decided to leave.
The lady at reception agreed to refund us but said she had to call Wotif to cancel.
We called Wotif while still there to make sure we were actually refunded. They called her to confirm. She wasn’t too happy but spoke to them and processed the refund.
We ended up with a great, clean 2 bedroom apartment at the Quality Hotel for only a little extra and it was well worth it!
I do not recommend the Essendon Motel!

Not-so-cheap & but nasty!
This is hard to do, as I have never had to give a bad review. This place was awful!Out-of-date, run down, dirty rooms. Curtains ripped & coming off the rails. Broken chairs on the dirty balcony. Bags of garden trash in courtyard below us. Graffiti on the furniture & fixtures. Dust & hair in the spa bath that doesn't even work. Paint chipping off all al fixtures & the basin. Everything needed dusting. Staff unfriendly, uninterested & lazy.
The only positive was the sheets were clean & the bed was comfortable. But we will definitely NOT be coming back here.
