ibis budget Manchester Salford Quays
Ranked #11 of 20 Hotels in Salford
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I stayed here and at the Ibis Budget Manchester Pollard Street so i could compare them so this review should be read in conjunction with that review.
The best thing about this hotel is it's location, its 20 minutes by tram from Piccadilly Station, and within walking distance of all the attractions in Salford Quays. Rooms are typical Etap (their former name) acceptable, clean and tidy, but not rooms you would want to spend a lot of time in, but why would you want to do that anyway?? Nice and bright Reception and Breakfast area (although there are other options such as a Morrisons close by). I recommend a top-floor room overlooking the Quays as it's a nice view from the normal sized window! Be aware though that this hotel has the Tram line on one side and a dual carriageway on the other so top floor rooms are the way to go to minimise noise issues. All in all a great value choice especially in this location and i look forward to returning!

Room Tip: Ask for a Top Floor room overlooking the Quays

We stayed here because it was near to all the things we wanted to see lots of eating places all around it . Staff was friendly and helpful room is ok but what do you want whrn its budget rooms are ok needs more pillows you need to take everything with you as it is expensive inside shower very good we had the top floor great views over looking carpark which is very small and is situated with the hotel next door so when full you cannot get in so leave car in carpark and go by tram .

stayed here 2 nights while down for the football, great location with loads of pubs, clubs and places to eat very close by, lots of supermarkets close by to buy anthing you cant take with you, rooms are basic with freeveiw tv but no tea/coffee facilities , small shower and very small toilet and I mean small (same size as one on a plane but all in all for the price we paid (£36 per room per night) was a great stay.

Room Tip: book family room

More positives than negatives:Clean,helpful staff,nice food,place to eat your own food.will accept pets,good size room etc. negatives where, the bathroom where the toilet was, was extremely!!!! Small,also my husband thought the bed was very uncomfortable&gave him a sore back, but it is a budget hotel,so I would excuse the bed,as it was a budget bed(a cross between a futon&a bed)Also the fans in the shower& toilet kept going all night which kept my husband awake.But all in all I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights and could not get any sleep with the noise. There were people running about the halls shouting and banging on doors for hours, people smoking in their rooms and the fire alarm was set off. There was no staff patrolling the corridors at night as not once did I hear anyone being told off to keep the noise down, it was a disgrace! When I visit Manchester I will not be staying in this hotel again.

Stayed for 3 nights.
First night rather expensive due to Manchester Derby taking place that evening, other 2 nights just over £20 p/n (bed only) very good value.
Room very clean, overall facilities , location, parking etc, also very good.
Plenty of places to eat & drink nearby, metro link stop across the road, noticed some other reviewers comments re: traffic noise,my room overlooked Trafford Road, and didn't really find this to be a problem.
Would prefer staying in this area rather than the city centre in the future.
