          Trams to city outsider front door, walk to Essendon CBD and just off the Tullamarine freeway . Ideal for those coming in from the north. Rooms are just basic, nothing special, just somewhere to sleep. Sufficient parking. family rooms available. Has external stairs

          I am not aware of any shuttle service, but it is easy to get a taxi at the airport, and not crazy expensive. I can't remember just how much as I was on a business trip so not using my own money!!
