This is purely a room to rest for the night. It's very small but clean. The toilet is the tiniest one I've ever seen ! It is noisy at night because the highway runs right past it. There are no other facilities or services - very basic breakfast for $9. There's a MacD around the corner if preferred.

I have stayed here several times and it is just adequate, no more. It describes itself as "budget" and is just that. Actually I think it is a bit overpriced for what you get and if you can afford it I'd stay at the ParkRoyal which is much much better ( and more expensive obviously ) If you do stay... More

AIRPORT ACCESS: Easy walk from the arrivals terminals, however late at night the walk is very isolated and there is no shuttle bus (I asked this question). It is well light but the walk goes through the car park and behind the highway into the airport. As a lone female I was not comfortable walking in at 11.30pm. I don’t... More

I was forced to sleep in this hotel because after 9hours flight I was exhausted. I didn't have a reservation and I was lucky enough to find a room after midnight. the room was small and pricey. It was pretty clean, but nothing special. It's really close to the airport so I could carry my crazy heavy bag pretty easily... More

Extremely small rooms that are not clean. A bar fridge would be wonderful. Carpets in the hallways and stairs were disgusting. And the price was dearer than you would expect for this level of service. Extremely noisy motel near railway line and doors that do not close quietly. Male receptionist was very pleasant but will not recommend this hotel.

Understaffed, thin walled, micro rooms, nano showers, and without a single lift. Outrageously expensive wifi. The only place nearby to get something to eat is a filthy burger restaurant where everything was hot except the food. Avoid.
