Booking accommodation at Melbourne Airport?

Does anyone know if it is possible and a good or bad idea to book accommodation when one arrives in Melbourne please?

Not ever had the experience of this - I do know there is a hotel/tourist booking service on the ground floor (arrivals) of the International Terminal. I suppose 2 things could happen;

1. Last minute booking you may get something cheap that a hotel is looking to off load;

2. Conversely like airline tickets last minute could also see you with limited choices and at prices or areas or standards that don't suit.

It really depends on what time of the year you are arriving. For example, if you are here over the next month - Spring racing carnival - then I would definately NOT recommend you book accommodation once you are here. If you are arriving when there is going to be a demand for hotel rooms, then I would highly recommend booking before you arrive.
