I've stayed 2 or 3 times at the Dazhong Airport Hotel and just the other day at the Motel 168. Motel 168 is part of Dazhong Airport Hotel which can be a bit confusing to first time visitors.
This is a quick review of Motel 168 but I'll explain the difference between the two. You'll either reach them by car but most likely come up in the elevator (between Pudong T1 and T2 next to the Maglev entrance) on one side of you is the Dazhong Hotel and the other is Motel 168.
They have the same confused layout except at Motel 168 the rooms are a bit smaller and not quite as nice but the price is cheaper. At the Dazhong Hotel the rooms are a little bit nicer and have a round bed instead of a square one. At both you'll get some cheap toiletry essentials.
Cleanliness at either is luck of the draw (China not know for being clean). Both are equally convenient and a good place to stay if you're on the red eye or want to get to a hotel quick. Beds are average and the showers are good at both places. Staff aren't all that friendly and at both places expect them to ask for a 700-800rmb refundable security deposit by credit card. You will NOT be debited unless you trash the room.
You can pick up breakfast by heading back down the elevator to the 1st floor where there's a couple of restaurants (inc KFC) nearby.
