“Seat Only” traveller? - ideal!
No frills budget hotel... as expected Clean with comfortable bed... as hoped Room on second floor with no lift... Not expected at an airport hotel where most guests will have luggage. A rather important piece of information missing from the Hotel write up IMO.

I would stay again as excellent location
Great location, shower excellent although very small. Room not very clean. Bed Comfortable.
Sandra, nz1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
The Melbourne Airport Ibis is a "budget" hotel - however we paid $156 for our overnight stay which we didn't think was a budget price when we were able to secure a suite at The Quest Melbourne Airport two weeks later for $161. The property was clean and basic.

Just an Overnight rest
Had an overnight rest stop for a long lay over. Was as expected. Although the vending machine was not working the bed was comfortable which is mostly what I needed.

Very good 8.0
Perfect location
Basic hotel but has everything you need if you need to be up earlier for your flight. It is a five minute walk to the airport and you can pay to leave your car there while on holidays.
