Staff were quite friendly & helpful. Room was clean & comfortable. However, i had 2 very heavy, large suitcases & carry on luggage with me, they don't offer a shuttle to the terminal as it is 'too close'. I had to call a taxi as the hotel was extremely unhelpful in this regard

We have stayed here several times in the past. On this stay, the staff were, as usual, extremely helpful on arrival. The room was cozy & comfortable with the best sleep in any hotel. Clean sheets (and towels), super soft pillows and a double glazed window to keep all sounds out. The air con works silently too. The price has...

In a last minute decision my husband and I decided it was better to stay close to the airport the night before our early flight. We rang Ibis after 9 pm on the night we wanted to stay. Our room was small but had eveything we needed for the night. It was clean, convenient and did not blow the budget.

Air con unit very noisy and only worked on low setting. Room sort of feels like a hospital room. But very close to the airport for 160 area. Wouldn't go back thou! They should put in proper heatpump style cooling/heating

The staff were friendly & very helpful. It is situated less than 10 min walk from qantas domestic. Reasonable price too. It was a hot night & long bunk over single beds stopped he cool air from A-C reaching we in the single beds. Very narrow room & hand. Basin was at other end of the room to the bathroom....

The cheapest hotel you can get which is walking distance from the Melbourne airport. We opted to stay here to have a proper sleep and shiwer before our early morning flight out the following day. It served its purpose.

We stayed here for a night due to a late flight on new years eve. Room was about 99 for the night. Walked straight from domestic terminal took about 8 minutes. Staff friendly and room clean but motel dated and no lift. Were happy with our stay for what it was (airport accommodation)

Stayed overnight due to proximity to airport. Very basic room, no glasses or cups. Shower interesting.... Bed was dirty. Big dark hairs on sheets and a feeling of grit on sheets. Staff on reception were nice but there was nothing they could do. I understand the meaning of the word budget and the convenience of the location to the airport,...
