Great place to stay
Its not a 5 star resort, its a good ol' fashoined Motel which is great if you are a business guy who just needs somewhere to sleep and shower.. The facilities are great. Check in process for afterhours was really simple.. I have stayed at some really BAD venues all around the world and Bell Motel will be seeing me again when next in Melbourne.
