Travelled to Europe in mid-late August and used as airport hotel before flying out in the morning. Very happy, great value plus shuttle bus runs very frequently. From dim recollection the food was quite good. I would definitelyusecagain.

We live two and a half hours from the airport so we often choose to stay at Ciloms the night before a flight. The rooms are clean and quite adequate for an overnight stay. Car parking is much more reasonable than the long term parking at the airport. Ciloms provide a free shuttle bus to and from the airport, but make sure you book the one you want for the next morning or it could be full. On arrival back in Melbourne we collected our bags and rang the motel. The shuttle bus arrived in ten minutes and had us back there promptly to collect our car and head off home. Parking is pre paid, so it's quick and easy to collect your keys from the desk and get going. Ciloms has an indoor pol and I think a gym too. They also have a restaurant but we didn't eat there. Breakfast smelled really delicious though.

Room Tip: All the rooms we have ever had have been good. Although it is close to the airport we have never bee...

Booked motel again (5th time) due to service and proximity to airport.

Room was good and only required for short time pending transfer to airport for flight to Broome.

Parking car was easy despite late arrival at motel and very cheap rates for the 28 days.

Prompt service to terminal.

Room Tip: If wanting a stopover pending flight and need parking of vehicle pending return flight, a good place...

We have stayed here before, this time we chose an executive motel room with spa. Really the basic room (which we have had before) would have done fine. We were flying out next morning and didn't want to deal with possible heavy traffic before our trip. The staff were friendly, the room was quiet (we asked for a back room), the view from the balcony was over a car park, again no big deal as we just wanted a quiet place to kick back and relax. The bathroom (pictures included) was very modern and large. I liked the area for cases and drawers between the room and bathroom, handy for dressing and keeping cases out of the way. Parking for the night was free (bonus compared to others). I love the Parkroyal as No 1 choice but Ciloms was fine, the price was half Parkroyal and it ticked all our boxes. I had brought along some yogurt and cereal for breakfast so we didn't have that to contend with. So yes it is fine, luxury it is not but if you just are looking for somewhere clean to lay your head for the night before flying out, it ticks the boxes just fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back, ground at the front would be the worst rooms.

We stayed at the Ciloms Airport Lodge as we had an early international departure. After arriving early the day before we were able to use the Lodges shuttle to take us to the Airport and connect to the Melbourne City shuttle bus thus saving us a taxi fare into the city, all in all we used the Lodges shuttle 3 times never at anytime was this a problem, and the driver was very friendly as were all the staff we encountered during our brief stay. It was not the most modern establishment , but clean and comfortable and value for money, we would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay close to the Airport

Our room was large, modern, clean and well-equipped. Check-in was efficient and friendly. However, for a couple of reasons we would not stay here again. Firstly, our room overlooked a corrugated metal roof; when blown by the wind the roof would make a deafening crashing and banging noise, which the thin windows did nothing to dampen. It was impossible to sleep through, which was not ideal given we only had 7 hours to sleep between flights. Secondly, the breakfast (which was advertised as costing $12 and was actually charged at $20) was pretty awful; congealed beans and bacon which had been sitting out all morning, cheap bread and juice, and absent staff.

A final point to note is that the airport has no facility to track your flight and arrange pick up based on your ETA. We were told that we would have to phone them after we had collected our bags, but there was no phone in the temporary arrivals terminal at Melbourne, so we had to make calls on our UK mobile, at a cost of several pounds. If we had run out of battery on our phones, we would have been completely stuck. A minor point but probably the most annoying one for us.

This is my 4th time here. Basic rooms, but all you really need for a quick stopover en-route to the airport. Free courtesy bus is also very handy (they even take you to the local shopping centre). The indoor pool is a little old, but my Children always look forward to a swim.
