Question Where to stay in Melbourne?

I have been trying to find some relatively cheap accomodation in melb for the 16th-17th of may for a family of 5, (hotel/motel type)

The problem i am having is finding somewhere that enables me to drop the car at Herrods, take the BOSS shopping at Bridge Road Richmond and be able to easily get to the Telstra Dome by Public Transport(GO THE PIES!!!)

If anyone knows of a suitable place could you please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Bazza.
