This property is not in the most desirable area of Melbourne. I don't mean to say it is unsafe but certainly not a great area to walk, dine, shop...etc. I stayed eight nights because I had no choice within a 5 km radius. The only other decent property in that area closed down. The hotel seems to attract a mixed... More

We had trouble with the after hours entry but other than that, a pretty good facilty. Very clean room, good well lit carpark. For the money, this is a good place to stay. Easy to access from the RIng road and close to the airport.

Ok sized room for one night for a single or couple, not for families. Good free parking. Close to fast food, a club with not bad food and supermarkets. Really dirty room, hair everywhere, marks/stains on bedding, on arrival had to wipe urine off toilet seat. Our child put their towel on the floor and my wife wouldn't let her... More

Despite its bright yellow gaudy appearance this hotel is not 'cheap and nasty' it is 'affordable and compact.' We had an event to attend in the city which we caught the train directly to. The closest station was a 5 minute walk. The staff on arrival at the hotel were friendly and extremely helpful. There is carparking available in a... More

Having stayed in Ibis budget before I knew what to expect. You don't stay on these places for anything other than a bed. Good location for an early flight. Nothing more. They are clean and basic no more.

We used this as a cheap 'head down for the night before an early flight' place. The room was clean but incredibly basic. Wooden floors, artex on all the walls and ceilings and a shower/toilet that wouldn't look out of place on a plane. I didn't feel entirely safe here. We had a hire car in the car park. There... More

I must say that it really saved my night because it's really close to the airport (5 minutes walking) and I really needed a room to stay after 9 hours flight. I arrived there after midnight and I found a room for a ridiculous amount of money: it was clean, but small... and there is no elevator (are you serious??)

Room 242 is on the edge of the building, maybe it's forgotten by the staff? We had the room for 3 guests. One of the beds was undone so had to struggle on the top bed at midnight before trying to sleep. Unfortunately even sleep was really hard because the window wouldn't close and the room was really close to... More
