The cheapest hotel you can get which is walking distance from the Melbourne airport. We opted to stay here to have a proper sleep and shiwer before our early morning flight out the following day. It served its purpose.

We stayed here for a night due to a late flight on new years eve. Room was about 99 for the night. Walked straight from domestic terminal took about 8 minutes. Staff friendly and room clean but motel dated and no lift. Were happy with our stay for what it was (airport accommodation)

Stayed overnight due to proximity to airport. Very basic room, no glasses or cups. Shower interesting.... Bed was dirty. Big dark hairs on sheets and a feeling of grit on sheets. Staff on reception were nice but there was nothing they could do. I understand the meaning of the word budget and the convenience of the location to the airport,...

Paid for breakfast but was not warned that the kitchen would not open until after I'd checked out. Comfortable bed. No tissues. A lot to pay for a short sleep. Best thing was the proximity to the airport.

This is a budget hotel in every aspect. However, for cheap overnight accommodation, close to the airport (5-10 walk) it did the trick. Shower was a challenge, exhaust fan ran incessantly (though was quiet enough that I could sleep), but the bed was comfortable.

We stayed in this Ibis as we had an early flight out of Melbourne the next day. Clean, tidy, smooth check in and a close walk to the airport. The room was impeccable. For a basic room, sheets were crisp, pillows soft and roomy enough for the 3 of us

We spent an unplanned night here when our flight was canceled. It was an easy walk from the airport and the room was neat, clean and functional. For the price paid, it was definitely good enough. McDonald's is a stone's throw away and the adjoining petrol station had essentials, should one require them.

My husband and I stayed overnight to be close to the airport for an early morning flight. The staff member that signed us in was rude and dismissive. The room was small with the 'bathroom' even smaller!! It did serve the purpose for the night, but don't expect anything extra or fancy! There was a double bed & 1 mug!!...

The Ibis had an excellent location. Customer service is exactly what you need. Easy and quick check in; even easier check out. There are no frills with this place, but it is clean and comfortable. A clean and comfy bed, nice hot shower, and walking distance to the airport terminal (5-10 minutes). Plus its close to the McDonald's for those...
