“not impressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

we stopped over at the ibis on our way to Qld sept 8th 2013,it was cheap but so it should be,there we;re no hand towels given ,1 of our towels had brown spots of god knows what on it,the room was like being stuck up in a butter box and i have never seen a hotel that does not provide tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms.we were told that we could access free tea or coffee from 4.30pm-9pm downstairs,its like having a curfue,restricted times to drink.then there was a communal fridge that we were told we could put our cold things in,these of course were not there when we left the next morning.breakfast we were told was $9 each for 3 of us it would cost us $27,so all up if we had have had breakfast it would have costed us $106,we could have had better accommadation over the road,breakfast included for the same price.will never advise anyone i know to stay here.

Room Tip: dont stay here

Value for money, bed good and quiet location. Pacific Highway address a bit misleading as address is 11/2 blocks away. The FIRE ALARM went off at 03.15 am which was unfortunate for the managers,(a couple of idiots smashed the glass amd then vanished).That was unfortunate and unlikey to occur again. We would stay again no problems.Geoffr

Driving from Brisbane to Jindabyne on a recent ski trip we needed a place to stay to break up the trip. We booked this through my husbands staff rewards program, and figured for $64 a night, how bad could it be?
Leaving work in Brisbane and driving straight here on a Friday night we arrived quite late, and were pleasantly surprised to find reception still open.
Yes the room was basic and not overly large, but it was clean, the bed was comfy and the shower was hot. More importantly, even though it is basically a 'highway motel' it's actually set far enough back that the noise doesn't really bother you.
It's close to the centre of Coffs so if you need to you could walk into town. There's a pub next door if you want a drink or a meal.you couldn't hear any noise from the adjoining rooms, but could hear doors opening and closing.
We do travel with earplugs and eye masks always, so never really have any noise issues wherever we stay.
Because we found it such good value we ended up staying again on our return trip.
At the end of the day you need to remember, you are booking an ibis budget hotel. It is what it is and doesn't pretend to be anything else. You get what you pay for.
