We stayed at the Econo Lodge at the last minute when our couch-surfing option fell through. Our whole reason for being in Sydney was to see the band that was playing at the Macquarie Hotel and it's right upstairs. We weren't traveling super cheaply so the $105 we paid for a standard room was fine and the room was clean and comfortable. Tom at reception was professional and friendly, plus helped us out with finding the cheapest parking option - not easy for a tourist in Sydney!
About a 15-20 minute drive from the airport and an easy walk to central station. Free wifi, tea/coffee and complimentary shortbread, all good. Only downer was the shower curtain's inefficiency which meant my towel got wet, but there were extra towels so it worked out fine. Curtains actually blocked out the light from the street, which was great, but the traffic noise starts early. We stayed in the bar until after the band finished so couldn't say if the noise carries up to the rooms or not.
Officially the hotel is undergoing renovations, but I actually really loved the "distressed" look of the walls coming up the stairs. The lift was funky and old-school, a bit cramped, but felt like being in a 1950s detective movie. We would definitely stay here again.
