I have a seeing eye dog. They were totally against her until I told them it was illegal not to allow a guide dog! Staff need more training on this. Room was soooo tiny and the step up into the toilet/shower, could be extremely dangerous. Reception I found a lil rude. The sink

This place is conveniently located not far from airport. Easy walk. Nothing fancy, very average and small. OMG you can not swing a cat. Ship cabins are bigger. You would not stay here for any other reason than cheap and a bed to sleep. Not suitable for family’s. We couldn’t get

This hotel is the true meaning of budget hotel. The room was very small with the vanity next to the bed and separate shower and toilet cubicle. The room was clean but far from perfect as there was hair in the shower and on the floor. The only reason we stayed overnight was to

Convenient location since we were flying out of MEL. Front desk informed us on check in-no point or credit for stay? Also room floor covered with dust. Made request to clean but still dirty. Too noisy on the floor!

This hotel provided a simple, basic one night stay with a short walk to the terminal ahead of an early morning flight. I can see no earthly reason for staying there otherwise. It is souless and lacking.

Hello how to I pay for breakfast as it wasn’t in my booking ?
Breakfast is paid for at reception. It is about $9 for a light continental style. I’m not sure of the serving times so check with the hotel. The staff are always very helpful with enquiries.

We arrived after hours but the manager was still at the front desk. There is an arrangement whereby you can enter the hotel, you need to let them know in advance so they can make arrangements for you.

I have just looked up the info on the hotel on the Melbourne Airport website and it states: "Reception is open from 7am until 10am, then 12noon until 10pm. Outside of these hours, access is via an automated reception kiosk, providing you with a swipe card and a receipt indicating your room number. The swipe card is used to enter the hotel and the room." I have used the self check-in after hours and neve had a problem. On many occasions I had to leave in the morning before reception was open and you simply put your swipe card in the box by the front door before exiting. You can email the hotel managers Donne & Elsie Cronje, Hotel Managers. If you google ibis budget Melbourne airport the details to email them are on the left hand side under the main picture. I just did this to find out for myself.

My flight will be arriving at 12 midnight and Can I check in right away ?
Indeed you may, best to book and pay before hand and simply insert the card you paid with at the self check in kiosk at the front door. The machine will unlock the door and give you a room key. Because the room is paid for, you simply need to return the room key (key-card) in the box at the front door on your way out. (If you leave mega early in the morning). Is a super friendly hotel and well worth an experience there. Much cheaper than any competition in the same locality.

It is a set rate per day, but if you book ahead maybe its cheaper. I dont know. I think it was worth it and I paid more than normal, maybe late booking or something was on that night. I got there by 0040 hours left at 0900 hours , so worth it in between planes. great comfortable bed,
