"Good value for money"
23rd January 2013, Aussietraveller35, Wollongong
Very pleasant budget room - fulfilled all my requirements. Although a long way from CBD is convenient if driving into Melbourne and when leaving. The room would have been considerably improved if it had a small table.
"Good for quick stay"
1st December 2012, robbyfam, Sydney, Australia
Needs new looks and seems a little run-down but for a quick overnight sleep its not to bad. Bed sheets were clean and rooms are ideal for single or couple with comfortable beds. However, for this standard is style and service, I definitely think they should bring the price back down to $59 per night.

stayed on the 3rd floor - a bit noisy both from traffic, trains & next rooms-lower floors have less traffic noise - but was surprised at the upgrade of the room - was quite pleseant and the bed was good. think the transition to IBIS is a good idea
"Airport stop over"
16th June 2012, hornet999, London, United Kingdom
For an airport stop over the location of the hotel is good. The rooms are basic but clean. Bedding was sparse for the top bunk (my son got cold). good soundproofing helped to get some sleep. TV in room but remote control did not work.View management response »

"Adequate for short stay."
1st March 2012, Ann F, Longford, Australia
Stayed one night prior to an early flight from airport. The room was very basic but clean. Everything worked. The towels were clean, there were two soaps. No fridge but a vending machine for drinks at end of corridor as well as snacks. Big hotel with meals next door. Located near shopping strip. Check in was quick and friendly, staff able to direct to eating places and road to airport.We left too early for breakfast but separate area for eating. Car park well lit and seemed secure. Bed ok.For price, seemed good value.
"Budget Accomodation - fair"
6th February 2012, Perth
Well, I booked this place by mistake as I was in a hurry. It is one of those typical formula 1 hotels. One studio style room with a bunker with separate bathroom. In short, it is fair quality for the price. We don't persue quality at this price. Location-wise, it is not ideal. It is away from city and the road connecting the airport. This means it is not ideal place to stay if you want to do city tour.
"not staying there again"
3rd February 2012, Bendigo
Returned to motel approx 8:30pm to find about 6 adults and 1 child sitting on seats at front door sharing a bong. there was fighting in the rooms on bottom floor.Did not feel safe at motel, air con did not cool down the room and there was no remote for the TV.
"Affordable,but it comes at a high price"
8th October 2011, Melbourne, Australia
I stayed at the Fawkner location for 2 nights. I wasn't expecting luxurious facilities for $90 per night but the smell to mould, the apathy of the staff and the lack of sleep due to a group of people drinking and having loud conversations until 1 am made my stay quite unpleasant.On top of that, the sink was clogged and my room was not cleaned properly next morning. I thought about giving the front desk staff feedback but the shocking attitude of the employees made me keep my comments to myself and never stay at any Formula 1 hotels again.First and last time that I'm giving my business to this hotel chain.
