I decided upon the Fenix Inn, based on its online ratings and the fact that it had 24/7 reception service. This was a must for me, since I was scheduled to arrive at KLIA at 11:00pm and wanted to go immediately to Melaka. The Fenix Inn was very helpful in this regard, arranging my airport transfer and late check-in. They even upgraded my room to a junior suite. (I had booked a superior double through Agoda.)
In general, although the rooms are quite spartan and character-less (in the junior suite, there was a bed, desk, TV, and brown leather couch), they are clean and comfortable. Since Melaka is such a charming city to walk around, I spent all of my time outside, and I only used the room for sleeping. But, I did rest well.
The staff was friendly and helpful, particularly when arranging transportation from KLIA and to the bus station. Although I was the only one traveling to the bus station at the time, they arranged their transportation shuttle van just for me...a very convenient and inexpensive feature.
The location is good - a short walk to the historic center and just around the corner from two very large shopping malls (if you need to purchase any items--like in my case, a plug converter--for your trip).
It may be a tad bit expensive for what it offers, but I found it to be an easy, comfortable base for exploring Melaka.
