    We are regular customers of the Downtowner and have been for years. It is clean, comfortable motel with a great location. Parking is a plus.

    We were disappointed that there was a big discrepancy in what we were charged last month when we booked directly by phone, and what we were charged through Booked.net this time for the exact same room style. The website said that only a king room was available. We booked this as our visit was connected to an urgent unexpected medical appointment. We were not given a king room. But we were given a king room account. The room was just fine but the charge was unfair.

    The Downtowner on Lygon is in a fantastic location, close to wonderful restaurants and the centre of the city. Parking is available which made visiting very easy. We also got a fantastic price through a special deal on Booked.net which was brilliant.

    It was close to city and lovely resturants

    The price was too high considering you have to pay $20 to park there and just to watch an in house movie was between $17-$20 which was ridiculous considering it was just a dvd on a small screen television.

    Close to the business I visit and also very close to CBD. Greet design of the rooms Friendly, helpful staff. Value for money. Good breakfast.

    Do need better above bed lighting - very hard to read in bed. Lighing in room could be better - even woring at the desk there is no direct light above.

    Convenience of the position in relation to the city, Melbourne University and dining in Lygon Street? Have been staying with them for many years and will continue to do so.

    Noise can be a problem at times from the street.
