Don't expect the holiday Inn Sydney Airport to be a cheap airport hotel, it is not, but it is a comfortable stay and has some benefits that other hotels do not have. The Mascot railway station is just 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel (not much shelter by the way for rainy days) and can get you into the tourist district in about 10-15 minutes on non peak times for just $2 for a single fare. Day passes start at $20 and include ferry rides as well as bus and rail travel. The ferry to Manly is a usual relaxing trip after a hectic start.
Breakfast was not included, but was available for $25 each - better to catch the train to Circular Quay and get something there.
The staff are very helpful, but the front desk can get busy at certain times. Taxis usually are waiting in the forecourt, and a airport shuttle operates from the hotel, so access back to the airport is good.
Would I stay again - yes.
