Big 4 Caravan Park: Big 4 close to the city and airport
We found this park to be even a little bit better than the Big 4 Ashley Gardens that we always enjoy.
For our purposes of visiting the suburbs of Melbourne towards the North, it was rather handy.
We had a cabin with a queen bed in the living area, and a couch (which you don't always get in a 1 BR cabin) and in the bedroom beside the bathroom was a double bed with single overhead bunk (that our friend who slept in said was handy she wasn't taller than 1.76 mt as she found the double bed not very long)
The kitchen had not just a microwave and cooktop, but a small oven as well, which is not usual in most cabins.
Bathroom is better than the usual holiday cabin bathroom.

Ashley Gardens Big 4 Holiday Park: Big 4 Caravan park only 20 mins from the city
We stay at Ashley Gardens most times we visit Melbourne, as the price is somewhat less than a similar standard hotel room (without the cooking facilities and kitchen the cabins have here), plus you don't have to pay for parking like you do in the city.
There is a pool, but so far it's always been too cold to try it out. There is a spa too (I think you have to reserve it to use it). Plenty of amenities for campers too.

Adina Apartment Hotel: Serviced South Yarra Apartments
These are very nice apartments, but the attitude of the hotel seems to be "just enough with expensive extras". The Internet in particular was expensive, and very, very slow. The location is pretty good, in the wonderful suburb of South Yarra. It's just a five minute walk to the station and C-Street, but it's at the quiet end of Darling Street.

Hotel Mint Rhapsody: Good business Stay
I had a very nice room with a balcony and a kitchenette to myself. The hotel had everything I needed for my one week stay and was very close to my workplace.

Melbourne Central YHA: Melbourne Central YHA
Pros about staying here:
--> The location is excellence. It is short walk to Southern Cross Station & Flinders St Station.
--> It is clean and comfortable bed.
--> I got it for A$28 per night, shared room with other three people.
--> Nice international travellers.
--> It is a short walk to a tram station.
Cons about staying here:
--> The kitchen is small as compare to other YHAs.
--> One of the washing dryer does not dry well.
--> No internet service.
Overall, I will stay here again if I visit Melbourne, mainly because of the location and price.

Citadines on Bourke Melbourne: Modern, Chic Comfort in the City
We booked a 2-bedroom hotel in this apart'otel and it was just perfect with all the little amenities one's used to have in an apartment -- really a home away from home.
The layout's very thoughtful with a full-equipped kitchen that came with even a dishwashing machine! We didn't cook at all but was grateful for the use of the electric kettle, the fridge and the well-stocked crockery and cutlery.
There was a lovely sitting area with full-length glass windows that offered a view of the city area. There was a TV and a radio and the master-bedroom had another TV in it too.
The master-bedroom's ensuite with a long bath and a fluffly and comfortable king-sized bed. The other room came with 2 single beds and the common bathroom had a standing shower area.
All of which was impeccable -- exceptionally clean and looked brand new! :)
I was very comfortable staying here and felt really 'at home' -- loved the simple and clean decor with the very modern look and feel.
Check out the photos :)
Great convenience as located in the city centre and lots of food and shopping nearby.
There was a laundry room with 2 washing machines and dryers -- need to get the special coins from the Reception below and need to provide your own washing detergent.

Hilton Melbourne International Airport: A wonderful airport hotel.
The Hilton is located directly across the road from the international and domestic airport. One can walk along the road and follow the signs or stroll through the covered walkway on arrival level 2. It takes approx 5 minutes walk , you can also take your luggage trolley up the lift to level 4 to the hotel foyer.
The hotel is large and modern built out of steel and glass. Our room was called a king size deluxe suite which was positioned on the corner of the building overlooking the airport with excellent views of the planes taking off and landing.
The room was large and comfortable with an extra large plaza TV and working desk with broadband connection. Basically, the room catered for all aspects regarding requirements for business people. The bed was extremely comfortable and pillows dreamy.
The bathroom was very spacious with a walk-in shower and bathtub. Good vanity unit and make-up mirrors.
Breakfast was okay with two chefs and a good selection and variety of cooked food. There was also a juice extractor with fresh fruit supplied, however this was tiresome to do and to me in most hotels there is usually some-one who does the job for you.
Dinner was adequate with a excellent wine list.
Facilities - consist of health club, gym and swimming pool.
We have stayed at numerous International Hilton airport hotels around the world and we found the Hilton in Melbourne to be equal with the others. If looking to be close to the airport for an early/ late flight departure then the Hilton will suit your needs.

Ibis Glen Waverly: The next best thing in Glen Waverly
The Accor Group has since swallowed up another lot of land and built the Novotel's cheaper sibling next to it. It's still a monopoly, no matter how they argue so prepare to pay way more than you should for an Ibis.
Function-wise, it suffices as a place to plonk your head for a night. The room is compact (they is no proper wardrobe, just a place to hang your clothes), modern and comes with all things needed (mini-fridge, flat screen TV, iron and board, Internet connection etc) to allow a business traveller, well, to rest your cerebral matter. The oddest thing about the room though is that there are no built in soap trays or anything to place your shower stuff in the shower so you literally have to bend over (yup, bad for the back) to pick up your shampoo, conditioners, shower gels and other what-have-yous from the floor just to get a simple shower. Nuclear science seems simpler. Last checked, the hotel has plans to correct this flaw. Good luck!
No pool, no gym. Lighter suitcase.
There is a ground floor cafe that serves a rather honest breakfast buffet for A$18, circa 2008.
And the service at Reception is always warm, professional and comes with a smile.

Oslo Backpack: Filthy Accommodation in Melbourne
Oslo BP has a good location and this is the only reason I decided to stay there although I had read some bad reviews about this place. Well, so now an on I'll believe in these reviews the place is really dirty, the bathroom is usually messy and the kitchen well, it's the filthiest kitchen I've ever seen. The rest of the place is falling apart and lacks maintenance, dust and rubish everywhere. At least my bedroom (that wasn't prepared when I arrived) was ok with a clean fridge but a really dirty wardrobe that obviously I didn't use.
The positive side as I wrote is the location close to Albert Park (so if you're lookinf for a place close to the F1 track this is an option, but there are other BPs arround) and to the bars and pubs. The staff was friendly and helped when I needed.

Chisholm College LaTrobe University: University Hostel
I stayed at Chisholm College over Christmas and New Year 2003-2004. I paid at a weekly rate which was came out to about $16 US per day. It included a private room with shared bathroom,, free laundry, nearby free internet at the library, each floor had a kitchen with cable television, and there was also a student union with pool tables, and cable televisions. You could also use the university gym and swimming pool for a daily fee. Chisholm College is not centrally located in Melbourne, but a long tram ride north of the city. There are some nice walking trails on campus and grocery stores and restaurants are nearby.
They had a Christmas barbecue for foreign students and travelers, and on New Years Eve they had a Lord of the Rings marathon in the student union theater.

Southern Heights Bed & Breakfast: Home away from home on the Great Ocean Road
We were looking for a cosy place to stay that's away from the towns and has views of the ocean to enjoy the countryside. We found it at Southern Heights B&B located at Lavers Hill. Run by Lex and his wife Mary, we were pleasantly surprised to meet a fellow Malaysian in Mary who was originally from Sarawak.
Their house is beautiful sitting high atop a ridge of landscaped gardens with sweeping panaromic views of the countryside and the Great Southern Ocean. Unfortunately, it was misty when we arrived so we did not get to see the view.
PRIVATE GUEST WING
A choice of two very comfortable fully carpeted queen-size bedrooms at opposite ends of the private guest-wing with private entrance leading from undercover parking. Both bedrooms with own TV, heating (both room & bed) and of course private en suite.
Both bedrooms are divided by guest entrance and relaxing lounge complete with kitchenette with tea & coffee making facilities, assuring privacy.
We were the only guests at the time and chose a room that faces the gardens and the ocean. In the morning, we were treated to a show by big colourful parrots and other birds who came to feast in the garden.
Mary makes freshly home baked croissants which were absolutely delicious. Followed by fresh fruits, spreads and eggs, we were very full by the time we finished although Lex commented that we have pretty small appetites! Breakfast time of your choosing.
Also included is a complimentary PERSONAL guided evening GLOW WORM tour in nearby rain forest on request. Unfortunately, it rained :-( so it got quite cold.
For A$139 per night
