“Good airport hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I stay at a lot of airport hotels and this is a good one. A short walk from Terminal, big clean rooms which are quiet. Food was good and staff very friendly. No hassle car parking. I didn't notice any aircraft noise.

We recently spent one night at the Holiday Inn after returning from Overseas. We chose to walk across to the hotel ourselves rather than shuttle bus after a 23 hour flight a walk and fresh air was needed it only took about 5 minutes . On arrival at check in the Reception Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful it they tried. Very quick and courteous! It was so lovely to get to our room which was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable and we really didn't notice any air or traffic noise at all. Check out the next morning was just as easy. Would definatley stay again.

This hotel is situated at Melbourne airport, whilst the outside looks very tired, the rooms were quite clean and perfectly adequate for a 1 night stay either side of a trip. Beds were comfortable and there was minimal aircraft/traffic noise. They offer a package with 7 night car parking which can work out to be good value. I've used this several times and never had a problem with leaving my car there. I don't like the $2 per person charge for the minibus to airport terminals though, this should be free.

Dear travelholicaussie,
Thank you for taking the time to review Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel's interior and the quality of the service.
Please note that our shuttle service for arrival and departure is complimentary and has been for at least the last 12 months, I apologise if you received some conflicting information.
I am glad our flexible parking options continue to impress you, it certainly is good value in comparison to other parking options in the Melbourne Airport precinct.

We stayed here for 1 night, we had a early flight out the next morning. Airport is very close, a few minutes walk from the terminal, shuttle is available to/from termainal if you do not wish to walk. Staff were helpful and friendly and check in/out was quick and easy. Beds were comfortable. I would stay again if I needed to fly out early.

We stayed at Holiday Inn at the Melbs airport enroute to QLD for the sake of ease and really expected it to be a bit second rate, not so; the staff were friendly, took care of everything quickly and efficiently (and we are a family of six so we can be a bit of a challenge!). Nothing was a hassell and all went seamlessly :)

Rooms were great, clean and modern, reasonabley priced, great long term parking packages while you're away etc. Room service was super quick and really well priced. You book your shuttle bus pick up time and they get you over to the departures with a smile!

A Lovely Surprise thanks Holiday Inn Melbourne team!!

I would recommend to anyone enroute!! well done

Room Tip: adjoining rooms available for large families

It is wonderful to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay. I am delighted that you were able to take advantage of our Park Stay and Go Package which includes 7 nights parking and enjoyed your meals and the service. With a family of six I am sure you already know about the Holiday Inn world wide standard of Kids Eat Free.
I hope you had a great holiday in Queensland and we look forward to welcoming you and the family back to Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport to start your next holiday in comfort.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting for the Melbourne Cup. The hotel is located a few hundred metres from the domestic terminal so if you only have hand luggage the distance is an easy flat walk. Alternatively if you have suitcases a courtesy shuttle bus operates between the terminal and the hotel. The hotel itslef has been around for probably 30 + years but the rooms inside have had a make over. We stayed on level 8 which is the top floor, facing the city. The room was spacious and well appointed with a work desk and swivel chair, flat screen TV with some Foxtel channels, a fair size wardrobe and a clean bathroom with a very good shower. The room was quiet with no plane noise and the king size bed had good quality linen and was extremely comfortable. Downstairs next to the lobby is a small bar and lounge with a restaurant adjoining. I had dinner in the restaurant and the meal was excellent although a tad pricey. I understand there is also a business lounge but we had no need to utilise this. I also noticed computers available for guest use in the ground floor lobby. We found it convenient and pleasant to stay here while the room rate was quite reasonable although we booked well in advance. I would recommend the hotel probably more for short stays and for those who need to fly out early the next day.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor room facing the city because at night the lights of the city are a nice view.

I stayed here earlier this year for one night. I arrived late on a flight from London, when I arrived at 21:00 I was tired and the airline had left my lugguage in England. On arrival at the hotel, the receptionist from very helpful and friendly, nice quick check-in as she understood I was tired and just wanted to go to bed. When I told her my bags didn't arrive she arranged extra toiletries & bathrobes etc.
The hotel was fine, standard Holiday Inn, what I liked the most was the service and the staff.
