A convenient hotel for airport travel with a short walk to the terminals, clean room, comfortable bed, great for 1 night. No lifts, so be prepared to walk the stairs, its perfect for me, just be aware. Sound proof windows - so no traffic noise.

A 5 minute walk from the airport, (with plenty of food outlets in the vicinity) clean, affordable and secure. What more do you need when you have an early morning flight? Comfy bed with fresh linen, a clean shower and toilet (although slightly cramped), functional air con for a hot afternoon. Minor downside, not great ventilation. So smokers either outside...

The Ibis Budget provides the best value accommodation within walking distance of the airport. Sure, the room is basic but it was comfortable enough...especially when you really only need it for the bed and shower. The walk took around 10 minutes to get to terminal 4....other hotels are a bit closer. It would have been an ordinary walk if it...

My husband, son, parents, and I stayed the night before our outbound flights and occupied two rooms. Our rooms were not right next to each other, but were both on the ground floor (FYI - there are no elevators!). Our room (#131) had a bunk and was very small, but clean. Noise: I was pleasantly surprised that I could not...

This is the perfect spot for a quick stop Over for an early flight the next day! The man behind the desk was super helpful and friendly! The room was clean and tidy, the bed was very comfortable! The aircon works well, you just need to adjust it to ensure that the air is coming out in your direction! I...

Good location,average service and poor quality rooms.Rooms are very tiny and hardly any space even to store your auggage.Linen quality not great.Even if this is a budget hotel it's not worth for the price we paid.

For $139 aud I don't expect miracles. I can accept a tiny room with just the basics. We just wanted a room with little fanfare at a reasonable price to put our heads down after a late flight into Tullamarine. I don't think that it's too much to expect a little relief from a hot, muggy night. A heat pump...

Just what we needed and comfortable for one night. Could walk over to airport for dinner and to catch the plane early in the morning. Left our car at jet port and came over from the airport. Happy to stay there for a night.

A short walk from the airport terminal, with good sign posting. a a friendly greeting at reception awaited us. The very compact room was spotless. A good night's sleep was had in the very comfortable beds. Excellent value.

We stayed one night after a late arrival from Perth on our way to Geelong. It was clean, comfortable for a short stay, walking distance from the airport and relatively well priced. It's behind Maccas (where the restaurant closes at midnight) and BP service station (where we ended up for a surprisingly Ok sandwich to beat late night munchies). We...
