Nice and clean. Quiet room. Small fridge available as well as tea and coffee. Tv also in the room and quiet ac. Bed was comfy. This motel also has a pool for those guests wanting to cool off. Its Right next door to a pub that serves good food. Overall a nice stay at a good price.

Worst motel experience ever. If I could give a zero I would. Upon entering the building it stunk of bleach and some other unknown odour. Girls drinking alcohol in the foyer which was ignored by staff. The room obviously had previous damage to it but crudely repaired. Toiletries and refreshments had not been replenished from the previous booking. Room had... More

Got tired travelling from Newcastle to Brisbane. Need somewhere to stay overnight. Ibis was ideally located, and very well priced. Rooms are small and a bit tired, but clean and air conditioned. Desk manager was very knowledgeable and helpful with many local (walking distance) eating options. Excellent value for money.

Stayed a few months ago. It was ok but was not impress with the cleanliness of the room as we found what looks like blood stains on our bed sheets. Was quite turned off after seeing this during our stay. Other then that location was good and you get what you pay for.

Tiny room, there was no light in the bathroom, which had no other lighting source. We stayed at another motel at Port Macquarie on the way back - about $20 more for water views, much better room - not an Accor Group establishment!

Unfortunately this place is next door to a pub and we stayed on a Saturday night. The walls and windows are so thin it was at a decibel level above normal TV noise with the window shut. The band played until well after midnight. So we didn't sleep until late. It was cheap but not that cheap! I'm sure most... More

I have stayed in many hotels around the world, from budget to 6-star. I do not generally write reviews, but I feel this place warrants attention as it is officially the worst accommodation I have ever experienced. Most cheap backpacker hostels are better maintained than this Ibis Budget Hotel. I do not want the General Manager responding to this review,... More

I'll admit good value for money, but very bare and basic in terms of having basic things like bed side tables, and extra power points. Bathroom tiny, old and dingy, shower curtain to ward off water, can easily leak out to main room... not ideal and no adequate shelving to put toiletries...old carpet (not good for allergy sufferers), loud air...

Great place for an overnight stopover, was very affordable! And when i checked in the receptionist must have upgraded my room, as it was much roomier than the photos and had an extra bed. Overall fantastic value for money, only complaint being it is quiet noisy being near the roads, so not for you if youre a very light sleeper.
