Stayed here when we arrived in Melbourne due to proximity to the airport. However, we regretted it, the place has the feel of a trailor park or council caravan site.
Very inflexible with the checkout time and were even trying to cash in on the victims of the volcanoe delays by trying to charge a full day when friends were waiting for a call from the airport. They were a mere 15 minutes over the 10am checkout.
The large white steel fence all around the site made me feel like I was in a concentration camp!
There is a lovely park just 25 km from the airport that we stayed in on our return, much better than this place.
