TripAdvisor® Traveler Reviews

Location was the selling point for us

It is our belief that individual Shadow Mountain unit owners submit their unoccupied (available) units into the rental pool so every rental experience will depend on the owner's deposit into the pool...

I first booked a King Studio room here through Groupon. It was a great rate for the area (and for a 3 star rated property) and I had checked reviews from a few sources including TA. We were in town...

Great property, horrible tennis experience

This is a nice, older property - well kept and unpretentious. We came here for tennis and that would be the issue. Nice people, very friendly, but kept sticking me in lackluster tennis and charging...

"My experience at Melbourne Park was awesome! I had a great coach and just being on the courts where the Australian Open players train was an amazing and surreal experience. Thank you so much for helping me with my reservations. It was an awesome holiday experience and I will highly recommend it to my tennis friends!"
