We stayed here for one night awaiting an international flight the nextAdam. The room was clean, with own facilities. We wanted no more as it was just somewhere to sleep. Exactly what you would expect for the price within easy walking distance of the airport.

Stayed May 2012, traveled with family

Great location, close to Airport..
the receptionist was not helpful at all. when i was checking out, I explained that there were numerous stains on the bed.. as well as a lot of hair... she then asked if I would go upstairs to show her.. which I did. She didn't apologize, basically waited till i got back down to reception and didn't say a word. an apology would have been nice...
I tried to be moved rooms, however, as I was visiting friends in Carlton, I didn't.arrive back until 4am.. and reception is.not open then. The bed also had collapsed to one side, and had two broken wheels.
