We stayed here the night before our early flight home. We had a room sleeping 4 people, which was a fantastic size with a little kitchenette.
Beds were comfy and it was surprisingly quiet considering we were on airport (I've never stayed in an on airport hotel before, as was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was!)
Check in and check out was easy.
Would stay again or at another airport Holiday Inn if I ever need to.

Stayed here when we first arrived in Melbourne. Short walk from the airport. The staff were really nice and very welcoming. The room we had was huge with a small kitchen area. Food was good, and bar prices quite reasonable.
Good place to start or end your holiday.

Only stayed here for one night but found it to be a lovely hotel.
Ideally based, close to the airport.
Room was very comfortable and more than adequate.
Really good friendly service at the bar and the bar food was very good too.
A shuttle bus was available to take you to the airport for a small charge (have to book it through reception).

We used this hotel for it's close proximity to Melbourne airport (walkable). Rooms, service and food were very good. If you are using a hire car you can walk through the multi-storey car park from the hotel. Overall a very good choice for a stopover at the airport.

We stayed here after arriving on a 2am flight, welcome reception desk, expecting us and very quickly processed. As expected of Holiday Inn; very clean large room, well equipped, even room for luggage trolley from airport! The only drawback was the noise from the road outside, more than would have been expected at an airport hotel and the light from a street light right outside the window leaked through badly fitting curtain, but small complaints. It was however very pricey and not sure it represented value for money.

Room Tip: Watch out for rooms with street lights right outside the window!

All you need from an airport hotel is knowing that you have 24 hour service and that nothing would hinder you from missing an early morning flight. I've stayed at Holiday Inn a few times because it does that and more. Having flight information available is especially handy. The rooms are quite good too. Check out could have been a bit faster, particularly given the likelihood that you'll be boarding a plane soon, but it's a minor criticism.

Dear Aus_PM_73,

Thanks for reviewing Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport after your stay with us in October 2011.

As a returning guest, we are glad that you have enjoyed our consistent service.

The availability of flight information works well to keep our guests informed, and this is also accessible from guest room televisions.

Please accept our apologies for the delay at check out. As an airport hotel, this is an aspect we are always working on to improve.

Again, thanks for your review, and we look forward to seeing you again.

Regards,
Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport.
