“Great sleep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I stay at this motel a couple of times a year for work and always have a great sleep. Rooms are clean, a tiny bit tired but its a busy motel. They have an airport shuttle, a friendly check in, an onsite restaurant which is OK, not fabulous but stops you starving! Meals seem to be offered at odd hours too. A bar for those interested. In room coffee making, just wish they had a good filter coffee for breakfast. Very good value at a location so close to Melbourne airport.

We arrived at 01.30 am after a 24 hour flight. Check in was quick and efficient and the receptionist was very friendly.
Our triple bedded room was a good size and clean - and there was endless hot water for showers.
A shuttle bus took us back to the airport the next morning.
I would use this hotel again.

Was not expecting this hotel to be excellent - we paid "average price" and found hotel to be just that. The housekeeping staff really do need to have much more of an eye for detail as far as cleanliness is concerned. I always travel with my own shampoo, conditioner & body wash & like to place the bottles on the top of shower recess if there is no shelf for them in the shower - Well, the dirt, dust, clug etc along the top of the shower recess was the worst I've ever found anywhere - It took 4 goes wiping the top with wetted toilet paper to remove the thick glug - YUK YUK YUK. Had a very busy day out on the first day & returned to hotel & just fell into bed - What I found in the morning shocked me to no end - The sheets I'd just slept between were "grey, stained & torn" - But I must say this was attended to by the housekeeping staff due to the note I left asking for clean linen. The following day I asked for the bedside light to be fixed as one was not working - that also was fixed when we returned - but that only lasted the one day as following night it again was not working - I'd lost interest by then! We had travelled from QLD for my son's wedding and spent very little time at the hotel, we had breakfast there only once and once was enough - not value for money at all - drove just down the road to Lazy Moe's every morning for the rest of our stay. Excellent value for money there. Best thing about Ciloms is their bed - so cumfy - thanks for good sleeps - love the bed. Lastly checking out was quick & very clinical - Are you checking out? Yes thanks, Do you want a tax invoice? Yes thanks. . . How about . . . Thankyou Ms X.........., Did you enjoy your stay? Thank you for chosing Ciloms. . . As I said - Average Hotel for average price... Would I stay again - doubt it very much. Maybe my biggest problem is I actually work in the hotel industry on the Gold Coast - and i expect all hotels to live up to the higher standard that I work with every day - But thanks again for the comfy bed.

We always stay at Ciloms Airport Lodge when we are flying out of Melbourne, staff are always pleasant and helpful, the restaurant meals and prices are ok, the transfer to the airport is always good, the rooms are looking dated, but are clean and have tea, coffee and biscuits.

Great location for an airport or business stop over, really good basic accomodation, not flashy, but meets all needs, good sized rooms, friendly, helpful staff and free shuttle to airport. On site bistro/bar serves really nice meals. Comfy beds, stayed twice and recommend.

Room Tip: If you want to swim, ask to have a room near the pool.

Ciloms airport lodge is located close to the airport and offers shuttle service (for free). The rooms are a little bit shabby, however people will not spend a vacation in such hotels. Staff was quite nice. The hot tub is not really a burner.
