We unexpectedly needed overnight accomodation near the airport, and this place was offering an opening special ($99 instead of $212) via wotif. For those who know Sydney, it's the old Arncliffe Hotel, on the high side of the Princes Hwy, cnr of Forest Rd. It's only newly been refurbished, and had been open just a few weeks.
Good points: it was cheap (but you'd be pretty unhappy if you'd paid the supposed regular rate of $212;) very clean, freshly painted, all new fittings, very close to international airport.
Bad points: Incredibly noisy, as it's a very busy corner and we heard every truck and noisy car at the traffic lights outside, throughout the night - shame the refurb didn't include soundproofing the windows. Tiny & badly designed bathroom and wet area - sink not even in bathroom, but outside in the room itself. And the sink/basin was so tiny you couldn't even fit the kettle under it. No fridge - essentially just the bare, cheap essentials. No parking - had to go a few blocks away, around the corner, and worried about safety of car - and it was also too far if you were carrying heavy baggage.
We wouldn't stay here again, but I suppose if you were in transit, without a car, picked an 'internal' room, and it was still $99, then it wouldn't be too bad.
