Location: This motel is located within walking distance of all Melbourne airport terminals, but further away than the other airport hotels. It is well signposted, so easy to find when leaving the terminal building.

Checkin: Very easy and efficiency, friendly staff

Room: The room is small and very basic, but it was clean and relatively well maintained. The air conditioning worked well. There is some complimentary tea and coffee provided as well. For a budget motel, the bed wasn't actually that bad either. We found the room was quiet and well soundproofed given the main road was right outside the window.

Bathroom: Again the bathroom was clean, but it is very small and cramped and the shower has no curtain or door so water basically covers the entire bathroom.

Other: There is no lift, so rooms on second floor and above will require you to carry bags up the stairs. Although we didn't use it, there is a small eating area in the main lobby with drinks and small bites.

Overall not bad given it is advertised as budget and fine for a one night transiting stay. I would say however that the pricing is a bit high for the quality of the hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floor away from reception to avoid the noise as people are always coming and going

What was $86 as Formule1 is now $149 as Ibis. Same rooms, location, etc. Nothing has changed. The rooms remain quiet to most noises and was very clean: not perfect but more than adequate. The staff were more than helpful in every way they could. Always with a welcoming smile. $9 breakfast was lovely and good value too. Internet charges apply. Two PCs in reception area are $2 for 20 mins & not worth 10c as all programs on the PCs are very outdated and basically, open nothing. the building has no elevator so be prepared to carry your bags upstairs. In all, a pleasant stay yet again.

Room Tip: No elevator so heavy baggage, stay on the 1st floor.

I found the room was so small, when I put my luggage on the floor, I was stuck on one side of it. No lift, no one to help to carry it upstairs. Otherwise the room was clean, but the shower needed a fairy high step to get in, dangerous for old people. Cheap fee, but it is a real BUDGET Motel. Compered to other Motels in the vicinity, it was very cheap. It suits for a quick overnight stay, but don't look for class.

Room Tip: Only inspected one room, on the plus side it was quiet.

The rooms are very basic, but they are comfortable and cheap. We didn't sleep well as we were right next to the reception and it was noisy as people were coming and going all through the night. They really needed a door to block out noise between the reception and the hallway. It would probably have been better further away from reception.
A short walk to the airport so very convenient.

Room Tip: Try not to be near the reception as it is noisy throughout the night

Located at Melbourne airport the motel is a ten minute walk from the arrivals lounge. It is well signposted and easy to find. Rooms are clean, air conditioned, have a television and are supplied with tea and coffee making facilities and basic toiletries. Breakfast is available if required in the reception area. This is a great choice if you have a late arrival and/or a very early departure.
