I suppose one option, if you are planning to overnight in Melaka would be to head down to the Grand Old Dame that is the Majestic Hotel.
Though I'm sure it was "majestic" in its hey day, looks like its gonna need more that a coat of paint to return to its former glory...

Aldy Hotel: The Hidden Jacuzzi
Not people know this, but the most gorgeous location for a Melakan Sunset is actually at the rooftop Jacuzzi at Aldy Hotel. You'll get to lounge around in bubbly water and witness a spectacular sunset framed by a restored portuguese galleon and the Straits of Melaka.
Aldy Hotel is a budget hotel, so don't expect any frills. What they do have are..
2)A Really Cool Bar with a Gigantic Screen ( and Cable TV for ESPN football!)
3) A rooftop Jacuzzi
*Note - The band plays till late and you can hear the music from your rooms. It's ok for me since i have insomnia anyway.

Tang House: Extremely small basic rooms
To say that the rooms here are small is a total understatement - they're minute - the smallest I ever slept in. My room just featured a mattress on the floor and measured about 8ft by 5ft with no window but it, strangely, had a/c. However, this place is very new with sparkling new communal bathrooms with hot water showers and toilets and a nice communal area downstairs with internet PC's and a kitchen where they serve breakfast which is included in the price of the room. I paid RM30 back in March 2009 but I think it's normally priced at RM35. It's fairly well located near the Tamil Methodist Church in Chinatown. OK, unless you're claustrophobic.

Aldy Hotel - Stadhuys: Close to everything
Aldy Hotel is a 3-star boutique hotel tucked away in the heart of Melaka.
It is in the "Red Centre" ot the “World Heritage Site” (UNESCO) of Melaka where many of the famous structures and landmarks are all painted in distinctive ochre red .
The hotel is adjacent to places of interest such as St. Paul Hill, Porta De Santiago, Little India and Mahkota Parade, the biggest shopping complex in Melaka.
Several restaurants and bars, a roof top restaurant as well - great views from here.
A great place in the middle of the historic area.

Travellers Planet Hostel: Decent hostel walkable to main attractions
Stayed in the hostel for 1 night. Good location which is nearby hawker centres, shopping mall and all the main attractions in Melaka. Basically the town itself is relatively small so it is doable to go through all the touristy spots for 1/2 a day to whole day.
The room I had is decent. Aircondition is working fine. Blankets & towel need to be rented for 2 ringgit each, which is not a big deal. The hostel is well maintained and clean (though not really insanely spotless). You need to take off your shoes/sandals when going about the common room and into your own room, which is fine too. Though, I would have opted to still use slippers.
Bathroom is clean. There's a hot shower which is separate from the toilet, and a lavatory outside. Breakfast is free, which is bread and jam. tea is also serve. But I decided to just have mine in a nearby restaurant. Food is something that I splurge into anyway wherever I go.
WiFi is up and running fast within the hostel too
Overall, it is a nice place to stay over the weekend. Highly recommend it to fellow travelers.

a VTer's brother's condo!: friends in high places
What could be better than bunking with a bunch of VTers by the sea? Not much, I tell you! And, not only that, but I got to sleep in the 'girls'' room, with three other female VTers, all of us curled up on a mattress and box spring!
And, it was cool and spacious...and we were all tired and hot...(not to mention, a bunch of us were also injured) that it was a great place to relax and recover!

Mimosa Hotel: A Strategic Location Hotel At City Centre
It is a between 2-3 star 5 storey high hotel. There is a very small lift at the left hand side of the lobby. Parking space is adequate with a 24 hours security guard. The room is getting old but very clean and free from dust and damp smell. Bath room need some refurbishment but it is clean with a bath tub. If the management could just lower the room rate to around RM110 nett, it will be a good bargain. My stay cost me around RM148 nett including breakfast and a set lunch for two pax during school holiday season. The hotel is located strategically in town centre.
It is around 10-15 minutes walking distance (Out from the hotel lobby, turned left and walk until the end of the road. Walk ahead and cross the road at the right hand side.) to Stadhuys, Museums and A Fomosa. Also very nearby to Jonkers Street (1 Km) where there is plenty of food such as chicken rice ball and cendul. At night those who know the direction to Capitol Satay Celup at Bukit Cina, can actually walk there because it is rather crowded and parking is a problem. You will be surprise that along the Jalan Bunga Raya (where Mimosa hotel is located) is actually quite vibrant with food stalls, night market and shops. The small Madam King shopping complex is just at the same row right hand side of the hotel.
Free Wifi is only available at the lobby and Coffee House. My room at the 5th floor has very weak signal, thus cannot access to Wifi.

Regal Hotel: Nice and close to the bus station
Regal hotel is one of not so known nice places where you get for good price a nice offer. I was satisfied with all the facilities needed in the hotel and the staff was so friendly that one of the man had gone with me to the store since I was alone - just for the security resons when I first arrived in Melaka.
AirCon, TV very friendly manager and hot water. Just don`t be suprised if the toiled won`t work and if the pigeon will nest upon you window and be very noisy.

Harmony Lodge: A decent Guest House
Hotel Puri had been booked out so decided to call this guesthouse which also belongs to the same management
warmly greeted by the person in charge of the phone and given a discount when aware of my long connection with Hotel Puri
catering to all visitors, Hotel Puri is for the discriminating travelers, Harmony Lodge is where you go when Hotel Puri is full or you only want to pay half the price and down the ladder is Cheng Ho Guest Hotel which is a basic guest house down the street 8 dollars cheaper
wi fi available free of charge
breakfast at the Cheng Ho Cafe, an added plus
at 88 RM for two, it is a bargain
one block from jonker street
right in the centre and you can walk everywhere, which is important in malacca
robert, very friendly who mans the desk

Travellers Lodge: Nice place
Its a nice, clean hostel. Location isnt too bad - its about a 10-15 min walk from the center.
I was only there for one night so didnt see too much of it, but the lounge area was nice and seemed good for meeting other travellers and the shared toilets and showers were all clean. It is surprisingly large and I did get lost getting to and from my room!
I decided to splash out and treated myself to a double with a/c and ensuite bathroom which was really nice and seemed rather new.
I was met at the bus station by one of the guys from the hostel and he was really helpful by pointing me in the right direction of the bus in to town and gave me a little map showing how to get there from the bus stop. Normally I would never take a room from a tout at the bus station but I had prebooked my accomodation through haystack - even though they had no details of my reservation there was no problem with getting a room.
Overall a good experience and I'd recommend it to other travellers.
One note - the phone numbers for the hostel on haystack and in Lonely Planet do not work.
Unless its a busy time of year you should be fine to just turn up.
It has a nice roof top terrace to chill out on. And if you take a taxi they try to use the services of a gentleman who I think was called Albert - he is SUCH a character - i have never had such an interesting cab ride! I wont say any more than that just wait till you meet him!

Travellers’ Lodge and Shirah’s Guest house: Budget stay at Melaka
Ask the taxi driver to drive you to to Melaka Raya Rd 1. Daytime it should cost you $10 from the bus station and $15 at night or midnight. You will find Travellers’ Lodge and Shirah’s Guest house. They are as low as 15 ringgit.
