Booked as a last minute stopover while between flights. I feel a jail cell would have been bigger and better. Needless to say the "bathroom" was tiny God knows when it was last cleaned covered in pink mould needless to say I didn't shower. Do not stay here!!!!

Was not value for what you pay. Rubbish service. Really small rooms. If you are a bit larger you will not like the tiny shower come toilet area where it is impossible to have a shower and not get the whole toilet area soaked. You could not pay me to stay here again.

In Melbourne for a week and stayed 7 nights here, twin share. Beds comfortable and clean with crisp sheets. Shower & toilet very small but also clean. Water pressure good in our ground floor room. Rooms are small, meant for minimal activity. We only wanted shower and beds, which was fine. Location is on busy intersection and rail line so...

This was a last minute booking for an unplanned overnight stay. The room cost $79 as it came up as the cheapest in the area on my usual booking site. Paying any more for the room would have been disappointing. The room is small. The toilet and shower are one tiny cubicle - you have to sit sideways on the...

My partner and I stayed in the Ibis Budget Melbourne Fawkner last year and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It was my first time experiencing an Ibis Budget hotel and even though the location was quite close to the highway we were able to have a good sleep. The only downside was the tram that went quite...

The management of the Hotel recently has changed, and after staying at this hotel under the previous and current Management, there has been a noticeable drop in service and maintenance. Upon a stay on 6 Feb 2015, we were assigned room # 313. When we entered, we identified a number items that need repairs in the room at the time,...

The room itself is ok but there have been black long hair lying on the floor. It looked poor cleaned. It's good to have a free car park. The shower/toilet smells mouldy and we always tried to breath less when we needed to go to the toilet. The reception staff is unfriendly! When we said good morning got no answer....

Plenty of free parking, busy hotel with lots of families. The clientele seemed pretty budget and a little rough around the edges. Smokers all around the entrance. Room fine with terrible bathroom small and my room included soap and razor from previous guest still there-so much for a "cleaned" room. Staff were pleasant and location is right on a motor...

“Rooms on the north side have the best view, but are noisy. South-facing rooms are the quietest, but you'll be facing a brick wall.”
