The room, bedding and towels were spotless. Tv with local channels. A few coat hangers. There's no hairdryer. The toilet and shower area were ok. Kettle with tea and coffee. Very quiet if you close the window. We arrived at 01.00 and slept with window open. Staff friendly. Breakfast was basic but we had enough choice. This hotel is half...

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 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)

“Rear view rooms are more private than car park view.”
  • Room with view of A/C, sink & window.
  • Room with view of coffee bar & TV.
  • All in one bathroom.
  • Ground floor view to airport highway. Silent as can be, blissful indeed.
