    « Modern room, close to airport »

    We stayed here overnight as a family, in a room with 3 bedrooms (two singles, one queen size). The room was a good size, and clean. The checkin process was straight forward, and we were able to park outside our room. The hotel is close to the airport, so useful as a stopover point. There was a little bit of noise over night from other patrons leaving at early times, but not enough to wake the younger ones.

    « Excellent modern rooms »

    From the outside this place does not look like anything special, but the rooms are excellent - newly renovated with very good furnishings and a beautiful, modern bathroom. All this plus just minutes from the airport with a shuttle service!

    « Very close to airport »

    Stayed here overnight to get to the airport early and easily. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good; squid ink risotto was very good and came covered in shellfish and the broccolini side was excellent. Rooms are basic, but clean, spacious and adequate for a night or two.

    « Ideal stop over »

    Easy access, good facilities, clean and comfortable. Just what we needed for a one night stop over on our travels round the Melbourne area. Very helpful staff, giving restaurant suggestions and road directions for our onward journey.

    « Service, Comfort & the Shuttle »

    I found Best Western Airport on the net when I was searching for a place to stay near the airport for an earlyish flight. I was also looking for somewhere to park the car for the 3 nights we were to be away. On their site I saw mention of car parking if flying and scratched my way through to find a price. Eventually I rang and was offered car accommodation for $8 per night for the nights we were away. Our room was excellent and well equipped. The motel provided a free shuttle bus service to the airport (about 20 to 30 mins) and came to get us when we called upon return. There is a restaurant and bar. Great service. Friendly helpful staff.

    « I just keep coming back, and for good reason! »

    I've lost count how many times I have stayed here, it really is that good! This hotel is perfect for the airport, and I again utilised the hotel airport shuttle. It was quick, friendly and more importantly, free! As we generally stay for functions, I request a room near the function centre and my request is always met, thank you. The room is great value for money. It is clean, modern and comfortable. What makes this hotel is its amazing staff. Too often people in hospitality disregard how important their job is and what a difference a friendly smile and 'hello' can make. Not here. The staff are friendly, warm and you feel like they would actually really bend over backwards to help you if they could. So I hope they read this and know they are awesome! The food at the restaurant is lovely, service is friendly and quick. My only quip is that I feel it is overpriced by a dollar or two. We will gladly return. Thanks for yet another lovely stay.

    « Great Value, great service and great shuttle bus. »

    We have stayed here a few times now. The check in is easy and efficient, staff friendly and the rooms we have stayed in have been spacious and great value. The parking at $8 per day is reasonable and shuttle bus is superb (starting at 4am). We had meals in the dining room an that too was enjoyable. Overall see our title. We recommend it.

    « Excellent well managed property »

    A tad difficult to find, however they supply a shuttle bus to and from the airport. Large well appointed rooms and an excellent buffet breakfast, and free internet. They also have a restaurant and bar with a big open sunny dining area.

    « Stop off after long haul flights »

    Booked this hotel for our first night and last night in Australia as a stop off to relieve us after our long haul from UK and also to prepare us before out return flights home. Staff we're all very pleasent and helpful. Both our stays were made very comfortable and the all process of arrival and checking out was very smooth. We ate breakfast and evening meals at the Reflection restaurant, breakfast was great and there was quite a good choice for evening but not a great deal for vegetarians, had 2 starters, but was good. The location was great to get to airport and the shuttle bus was an added bonus.

    « No hassles »

    Arrived in Melbourne at midnight. Shuttle bus arrived promptly & we were settled into our room within 5 minutes of arrival at motel. Very efficient, rooms were great & they have a restaurant with buffet breakfast for $19. We decided to get some exercise before a long flight so wandered 5 mins down the road for coffee & breakfast. Would definitely stay again. Very reasonable prices also.

    « Friendly staff and great facilities »

    Every time I stay here the staff are very helpful and polite, facilities are fantastic the meals are always great and tasty, rooms are clean and tidy and wifi is excellent. Conference facilities are also excellent.

    « everything it promised »

    We ( 6 adults & 3 children) stayed here earlier this month on our way to Singapore and Bali. we booked three rooms, with free shuttle to and from the airport. the hotel delivered everything that it promised. we were picked up from the airport no problem and the check in was easy and smooth, all three rooms were nicely appointed, with comfortable beds, good quality tv ect, very good tea/coffee making facilities, and very nice bathrooms, the general cleanliness of the rooms was nothing short of outstanding, everything gleamed, chrome light fittings, bathroom fixtures, mirrors everything. in fact I will go so far as to say this was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, I would happily stay here again and i'm very happy to recommend this hotel.

    « Good for airport lay over »

    Basic clean hotel good only for stays on your journeys before you flight or in between two flights connection. Typical cheap built rooms that you can find in all these type of hotels. Free shuttle pick up and drop off to and from airport.

    « Good Value, Good Airport Location, Comfortable Hotel »

    We booked this Best Western because it was near the airport for our early morning flight. It was a little difficult to find but we made it! It is quite an expansive hotel. We had an easy check-in and our room was towards the back and the pool away from the road. It had a nice view out the front at the sunset. You drive right up to your room so there is no problem getting luggage in. Free parking. The room was very nice, clean, and efficient. The A/C was very quiet as well. We were fortunate and really had no noise to speak of in the evening and during the night. Although we didn't use it, it looked like there was a nice breakfast area as well as conference room facilities for business meetings and functions. It was a bit of a hike from our room to the main office and check-out but they were very efficient and we made it easily to the airport on time. A good value for staying ahead of a flight.

    « Perfect place to stop before onward flight »

    Picked this hotel because of its close proximity to the airport. Nice helpful staff on check in. Our room was clean and had all we needed for our short stay. Transport was provided to the airport which was quick and the driver was friendly and helpful.

    « OK for one night »

    Convenient to the airport and the rooms look to have been recently refurbished. The airport transfer was a good benefit, but local amenities are limited. Everything was clean and the bed linen was good. The rooms have black-out curtains but the light from under the door and the radio alarm and smoke detector make this benefit limited.

    « Beds comfortable and modern decor »

    Enjoyed several nights of comfortable sleep in two rooms in this motel during work trips. Both rooms I stayed in were well appointed. Shower pressure and temperature were good. All the usual from Best Western, such as ample shampoo and soap, shower cap, hairdryer, extra blankets, linen, ie towels and face washers supplied. Wifi available. One room I stayed in was double room, and had plenty of space with lounge chair and coffee table alongside bed, while the other room a triple, with a double and single same room. Both were called comfy. Staff friendly.

    « Poor housekeeping »

    We stayed here for one week. In that time the door key failed twice. The room was never fully cleaned or vacuumed. On the last day after the room had been serviced we returned to find pillows on the floor. It is a great location, and this spoiled it for us.

    « And the Restaurant Was Wonderful »

    This motel is more than just a place to stay between flights. We were there for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. We had such an excellent dinner the first night that we went back the second night. Black rice seafood paella then seafood pasta. Both excellent. We also enjoyed the neighborhood around the motel. We walked up to the Westmeadows Country Bakery for breakfast both mornings and took a very enjoyable walk through the Westmeadows Reserve which was filled with wildflowers, birds and the song of frogs and waterfowl. The staff at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

    « mixed review based on room location »

    Mixed review due to our room location (Room 3) Positives: Clean room good size has everything you need including a reasonable priced mini bar and bathroom toiletries. Bed comfortable. Good location for airport Staff all lovely and service good Well priced for a night Negatives (and the main reason for 3 stars not 4) Rooms 1-7 are right near reception. We stayed in Room 3 which had NO soundproofing and I got barely any sleep due to the constant coming and going of guests and the courtesy bus. People rolling suitcases doors of cars/shuttle slamming and people talking with no respect to other guests. I am normally great sleeper too. My husband had finished night shift that morning so he slept through it surprisingly. I would only ever stay here if I was guaranteed a room away from reception. Room 3 was literally directly opposite reception and the shuttle bus. No good. Having stayed at other airport motels this was a huge negative the night before a long haul flight.

    « Average airport hotel »

    We waited an hour to get off the plane and so were very late arriving, the bus still came for us at 02.00 for which we were grateful. Fridge in our room was leaking and the floor was wet but we were too tired to complain then and there. They kindly gave us free breakfast to compensate.

    « Great value- friendly staff »

    The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. The food was superb and the chef was welcoming, cheerful and cheeky even at 9 o'clock at nite! The rooms were neat, tidy and clean. The bed wasn't as soft as I would like,but hey, I am a princess and do miss my expensive plush 50cm pillowtop mattress when away from home

    « Really handy for the airport »

    We stayed two nights here and were happy with our stay. This is a motel style set up but wholly adequate for our needs. Very efficient, there is a shuttle service to and from the airport and reception is quick and efficient - the whole place is set up for jet-lagged travellers arriving at odd hours. There is a small restaurant which is fine for families but be careful to book because space is limited.

    « Very helpful staff »

    We stayed there recently for one night each two times. the staff was very helpful and tried to resolve any concerns. We had a problem with the pressure of water in the shower, they offered to change the room and did all that was possible. Good rooms. The location is perfect for a transit stay. The free shuttle to the airport is a bonus.

    « Overnight prior to airport »

    Stayed overnight prior to departure from Melbourne airport. Comfortable but not spectacular, but good bed, shower and TV. 24 hour reception and shuttle bus a real big plus. Restaurant food was really very good, albeit expensive. A surprise given the location!

    « Comfortable, clean, and convenient »

    Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. First off it is conveniently close to Melbourne airport. Second rooms are clean, comfortable, quiet, and spacious. Great restaurant and bar on premises. Recommended.

    « Real Surprise Packet »

    Recently stayed here when transiting through Melbourne for a snow trip. Must admit I booked this accommodation due to the price and free shuttle service to and from the airport. The hotel impressed, all furnishings were modern and in very good condition. The bed was very comfortable and pillows were great. Front desk service was outstanding on every occasion and all other staff were cheerful, this really is a great place to stay when wanting to be somewhat (8 minutes) close to the airport.

    « A surprise »

    I found the staff extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable with no noises to keep you awake at night. I had a pleasant stay. This hotel is a little out of the way but they have a shuttle bus that goes to and from the airport. There is a public transport bus right at the door that runs reasonably regularly and takes you to a train station that goes to the city. I had a 6 AM flight and the shuttle was ready to take me to the airport in plenty of time.

    « Great place to stay so handy to the Airport. »

    Really need to look at the quality of your bath towels some of which are thin and have fraying edges. Not a good impression for such a great Motel. Apart from that, we are very impressed and happy to stay here. Very comfy, clean rooms, great restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff. The courtesy bus is a big bonus for guests. Will definitely stay there again. This was our second stay actually.

    « Great Airport Hotel - Value for Money »

    Due to increasing prices, at the two hotels located closest to the airport, we decided to give the Best Western Airport Motel & Convention Centre a try, We are glad that we did - it was amazing value for money. We booked a stay and park package (one night/ ten days) which cost us less than just the accommodation would have elsewhere. We found the rooms to be clean, spacious and well appointed; the staff welcoming, friendly and efficient. The shuttle service to/from the airport was readily available, with our car conveniently waiting when we got back. The restaurant menu was reasonably extensive, with several smaller meal options available. Servings were generous and prices as expected for Melbourne/Airport dining. The wine list was also reasonable extensive and prices were less than expected. We will definitely be back next time we are flying!

    Had an overnight stay , room was old ,but very clean, bed was really comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, free shuttle service to the airport, very prompt,great service, we never had a meal but had a restaurant and offered room service.

    « An airport motel »

    We arrived having driven over 12 hours from Katoomba. We were overnighting so we could pick-up our father from the airport in the morning and continue our trip of eastern Australia. The check-in seemed to be fair more complicated than it needed to be and didn't seem to be overly friendly or efficient. That's somewhat surprising given the nature of the business but recognizing that the motel's focus is more on airport departures/arrivals that could be forgiven as there were many comings and goings. Then again that happens at many hotels, doesn't it. We simply wanted a room and a bite to eat. As the restaurant was closing soon, surprisingly early for a Friday night, the service and the food seemed to take forever to arrive as I think everything had been set-up for nap time. Not top notch for sure. The food itself was tasty but expensive. I expected more from a motel geared to for the client in transit.

    « Great! »

    If you need a hotel near Melbourne airport and do not want to spend the big bucks, this is a great option. Only a few minutes from the airport, it is tucked away in the quiet suburbs of Attwood. It has a airport courtesy bus, hreat restaurant and only a short drive to the AQIS centre. Polite and friendly staff, clean & modern rooms.

    « Worst single nights sleep (or lack of) ever »

    We picked this because of a couple of reasons, car parking, restaurant with "dinner special" and proximity to airport. I've stayed at places across the world and this was without doubt, the worst nights sleep ever. - DO NOT get a room numbered from 1 to about 10. The shuttle bus runs 24 hrs a day at 1/2 hr intervals. It pulls up outside reception adjacent and proceeds to bang doors and offload ignorant tourists that seemingly cant figure out that its dark at 2am and people might be sleeping. All reception offered was an apology. How about telling them when still on the bus to be quiet? - to top off the location, room 3 didnt have a weather seal on the door, meaning i had to jam a notepad into the door frame to stop it rattling in a minor wind. Supposedly it was soundproofed according to reception. Go figure... - the restaurant food was good but $36 for parmi and chips is not high end. Its gouging. Dont mind paying top dollar but when i can get this plus a pot of beer at a third of the price elsewhere, this is over the top. - the "dinner special" amounted to a $15 discount. I'd have gladly given them the $15 and then some for uninterrupted sleep. Wasnt worth the discount

    « Friendly »

    This hotel is lovely and the staff wonderful but If you are here for more than one night make sure the management do not put you in rooms 1 to 10. The airport transfer bus loads right outside these rooms. Most mornings people start getting on the busses around 4am. Last night it was 2am. I understand how excited most people are going on a holiday but they really should be considerate and keep the noise to a minimum.

    « Excellent service and food to match »

    Service was excellent in the restaurant with very friendly and accommodating staff and the food was apsolutly brilliant. Hats off the chef. Rooms are comfortable and offer free wifi and pay tv and are serviced daily.

    « Excellent Room and excellent friendly staff. »

    What more can I say? Will recommend unreservedly. The room was lovely, spotless, comfortable and quiet, beds very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is handy to Tullamarine in a quiet area. Free airport shuttle was prompt and both drivers were absolute gentlemen. Cannot recommend highly enough. Enjoy your time there.

    « Restaurant and Staff »

    Came in for dinner, atmosphere was lovely, and the service was amazing, didn't stay at the motel drove past last night and thought we'll pop in. Very quiet place to enjoy the bit of time away from the busy city.

    « Accommodation Good service very poor »

    Stayed here tonight and the room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. The customer service was terrible. Front desk at check in Tess the receptionist was rude and not friendly and really needs to be friendly as for this reason I will not return.

    « Location, location! »

    Great motel ideally located near airport. Some rooms are freshly renovated and very quiet. The food at the restaurant is surprisingly good with a decent wine list. There is a free shuttle service (very convenient).

    « Great place pre early morning flight »

    Have stayed at another chain overnight before an early morning flight but they were full so I booked best western. What a delightful surprise. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. You have all the amenities you want and it's highly affordable. The room service was excellent and menu varied and interesting. The shuttle driver was polite helpful and informative. Will be staying here again .

    « Location and service excellent »

    Great location before early morning flight, staff fantastic, room good. Easy to locate, restaurant was an unexpected surprise, had one of the best meals in a restaurant in quite awhile, prices were restaurant prices but deserving of the service and quality of food, well done

    « Location, good, room, good, room service....average! »

    Great easy location to airport and shuttle service to and from very convenient. Staff at reception very polite and helpful, room clean and tidy with decent furniture and comfy bed. Room service issue......I ordered late at 9.20pm and food arrived at 10.45pm and only after 2 calls inquiring as to the arrival time. This was annoying but my only issue with the stay.

    « Why we stay here »

    We always stay here when traveling, it is so close to the airport and free bus which is great. The breakfast is really nice and the staff serving breakfast are just lovely. The rooms are clean and really comfortable bed. Great shower to which is important to me.

    « Airport overnight »

    Best eye fillet ever. Staff friendly, shuttle bus convenient for stopover in Melbourne (windy rainy night). Lots of rooms, as you'd expect, beds ok, heat pump, good shower. Would stay again, excellent for easy stress free night's accommodation handy to the airport.

    « Best meal we have had all year! »

    Beautiful restaurant, (ideal for a small wedding) our bruschetta, tantalising to the taste buds, scotch fillet cooked to perfection, medium rare, green beans crunchy, just perfect and potato & leek gratin amazing. Mushroom sauce excellent accompliment. Congratulations to the Chef Ashley. The best meal all year. Oh, the room is beautiful and very comfortable. Thank you. Much appreciated. Kerry & Graham from Echuca. Etain Celebrant Services.

    « Somewhat rundown, Close to Airport »

    The motel clearly shows the age and in need of a complete refurbishment. The rooms are old and tired. The beds are no comfortable and worn out. The proximity to the airport is the only plus really. Try to avoid staying there if you can, but if you have to fly out at 6 am, then it can be a tolerable choice.

    « Great service, restaurant and rooms »

    Great service at the restaurant and at reception. Sheldon at reception especially helpful and polite whilst wait staff extremely polite and quick with service also. Food is decent, but not huge variety for younger kids but still very nice.

    « Great food experience »

    Came here on business a few months ago, and although the staff were good, being a massive foodie, I was highly disappointed in the food and presentation was below average. Told myself never book here again. The other day, due to other places booked out, I was forced to stay once more, and I was glad I did! The food was fantastic, a massive improvement. My Angus beef steak I ordered medium rare was cooked to perfection, mouthwatering, upon a clean plate brilliantly presented My go to hotel accommodation in Melbourne, just for the food.

    « A great find. »

    We often travel via Tullamarine, and on too many occasions the arrival or departure of a flight makes it hard because we need to travel from Bendigo. Unfortunately the hotels at the airport are either expensive or pretty ordinary. This one offers peaceful rooms and a shuttle service. It makes it so easy. An added bonus, great breakfast and good quality coffee. This accidental discovery has become our go to place when needed.

    « Overnight stay »

    Nice and close to airport, comfortable room, price value for money, walking distance to pub and restaurants, staff friendly and helpful, great that there was a shuttle to airport less than only 15 minutes away, transit made very easy, driver dropped right outside the right terminal

    « Couldn't have been easier »

    One night before we flew o/s. Staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble.. Room was clean and reasonably quiet. Great price. Courtesy bus was quick, efficient and hassle free! I would highly recommend this location.

    « Close to the airport, but whisper quiet ! »

    We have stayed at Best Westerns all over and we were delighted that on a search for accommodation close to Tullamarine Airport that this one came up. As I had left it a bit late to book online I phoned to book and reception could not have been more helpful despite the very early hour. We were running late that evening and phoned ahead to say we would not arrive until 10.30pm. Again very pleasant at reception which is staffed 24 hours.. Check in was a breeze ,and with clear directions on how to find the room from reception which was excellent as it is a very big motel and it was teeming rain.The room was large, comfortable and I have to say absolutely spotlessly clean - wow - compliments to the cleaning staff. It was a cold night but the ac heated up the room beautifully in minutes.Despite the fact the airport is only minutes drive away it was whisper quiet in the room. The bed was really comfy with lovely crisp clean linen. Great shower too. All in all a 5 star experience. Unfortunately as we had to be at the airport for 5.30am we missed out on breakfast . Would definitely stay here any time !

    « Fantastic »

    This would have to be the cleanest motel room that we have stayed in. The staff are professional, approachable, helpful and friendly, so 5 stars for customer service which is extremely hard to find. Thank you to all staff. Extra bonus is the car parking while you are away & free Airport Shuttle bus.

    « Melbourne airport »

    This is a great motel 1--15 minutes bus ride away from Melbourne. The hotel bus will pick you up and drop you off. We stayed there as we had a connecting flight and one night to kill. The rooms were well furnished with all the usual supplies. Unfortunately the outdoor pool is not heated, but this is a great setting with palm trees and lots of birdsong greeted us in the morning. the best feature of this place is the wonderful meal we had; we were sceptical about the quality of hotel food but this meal was truly superb, and we got to thank the (modest) chef personally. Great place to stay if passing through

    « comfortable and convenient »

    There is a huge car park but we were able to park our rental car right in front of our room. The room was cozy looking and big enough for our needs. There was a big flat screen tv, fridge, coffee set, luggage rack and two huge arm chairs. The shower room was spacious and well appointed. There is breakfast (payable/ included depending on your rates) served in a pretty dining room which also offered other meals. Most important to us, it is just a few minutes' drive to the airport, with service stations en route.

    « For dinner »

    I have been here for dinner many times.. a friend says the best steak. The service here is excellant, the staff are very friendly and are eager to please. The atmosphere is pleasant. Quite a good menue prices are average...nice place.

    « Good could be better. »

    Stayed recently for one night, found place easily actually by accident. Checked in while waiting for my wife to arrive from UK, restaurant okay very noisy with older travellers you get ones not do bad, given nice cold water to drink ordered a beer mmmm. Had oysters Kilpatrick very nice. Then we both had mains very large. Room not bad, big comfy, good shower, now room service chef didn't turn up, so had to do with kitchen/hotel staff and I don't think they had actually cooked anything in there lives before. Eggs looked like they had been BBQd everything else thrown on plate,complained to Head of House Keeping.....breakfast was then taken from our bill.

    « Great stop-over »

    After arriving late on a Friday night we booked into the Best Western without any fuss. We were so pleased with our room! The bathroom and shower was huge and very clean, it looked recently renovated. The king sized bed was beautifully comfortable which was great as we were really tired. We would happily stay again if flying through.

    « Overnight and day between filghts »

    Very helpful front desk staff going beyond to make the stay pleasant. Found a room for a very early chech-in. Could catch up on sleep in well darkened room whic was also quite. Shuttle service always appreciated and reliable.

    « Everything in one place! »

    We initially booked here because it was close to the airport and had free parking. What a great decision. Easy book in then we went to the room - on opening the door I was speechless. I have never in all our travels come across such a clean welcoming motel room. It had all we needed, it was clean, warm and spacious. We were there for just one night on the first visit so before we left we went for breakfast...what a treat. Friendly staff welcomed us, there were many choices for breakfast including a cooked breakfast. As to the, really good. We returned before we left Australia for two nights and it was just as good

    « The BEST Best Western that I have ever stayed at! »

    Booked this Hotel based upon reviews and it was WONDERFUL! The king size bed had a comfy mattress with some o the best pillows ever at a hotel. The lighting and heating/AC was outstanding. Lots of power outlets everywhere. The bathroom and shower was large with a nice shower that was high enough for my 6 ft 5 inch frame.The dinner was outstanding in a beautiful three sided window room with lots o small lights that look you were eating under a star lit night. Close to the airport but completely quiet. Loved this Best Western'

    « Good location, recently refurbished, clean and comfortable »

    I like to stay here when visiting family in Melbourne. The door to door free airport shuttle bus is a bonus. The rooms are quiet and modern, the beds are comfortable. The restaurant has good service and food. I have stayed at other Melbourne airport hotels/motels and this one ticks all the boxes for me.

    « Always enjoyable »

    I've stayed here several times, and it's always very good. This time my room was located on the ground floor under the convention centre, and it was better than I anticipated. It appears that these rooms have recently been renovated. The bed was comfortable and all the necessary amenities are present. Dinner was lovely and the breakfast options were also great - though neither can be considered cheap.

    « Was stuck at airport after cancelled flight. »

    Found myself stuck at Melbourne airport and a cancelled flight at 7pm at night a very bad situation to be in travelling solo and not knowing anything about how hotels operate when flights are cancelled. Was booked this hotel by visit Victoria desk downstairs at airport the last room. At $217 a night very expensive and not a happy camper out of pocket. The shuttle bus were terrific the room spotless shower wonderful full mini bar I had room service as well very nice and extremely cheap. Staff wonderful. Only stayed probably 10 hours in the place I did hear people moving suitcases outside and the planes but was no bother. Would I stay again under different circumstances yes as it was very convenient door to door service just book well in advance and get a good price.

    « Convenient location near the Airport. Value for money. »

    I only needed a bed for the night after arriving in the evening from Dubai and travelling on the next morning. The room was booked by phone from the airport and the shuttle bus picked me up 5 minutes later! The room I had (room 35) was your typical old school motel room which had undergone a little facelift but was still a bit tired. It was clean and comfortable however and was all I needed for the night. The shuttle bus dropped me of right on time the next morning. I would recommend this place for overnight stays near the airport.

    « Convenient with friendly staff »

    We stayed for one night on our way out of Melbourne. It is so convenient to the airport and you can leave you car there at a low price and catch the airport shuttle that goes often. Room was clean and well maintained. Not particularly modern but quiet and peaceful. It is ideally situated if you are visiting Melbourne being close to the freeway or live on the eastern side of Melbourne and just cant face battling your way throught the traffic for an early morning flight!

    « Nice and convenient place for short stay in Melbourne. »

    We booked 3 rooms for a one night stay as it is near the airport. The place is situated in a friendly and nice neighborhood. You feel safe and at home. The reception is friendly. Shops and restaurants are available nearby although they are small setup. The rooms are clean and of good size. All are equipped adequately. Parking is near the rooms. However, the restaurant is open at 5pm onwards. Overall, it'll be very convenient for anyone flying in or out of Melbourne.

    « Another great stay »

    We had another great stay at the Best Western Airport Motel and Convention Centre. We live in North East Victoria so this motel is ideally located on the outskirts of Melbourne close to the airport. Reasonably priced, clean and comfortable with a nice breakfast. We stayed in a room close to the swimming pool which was really quiet and it's great being able to park your car right in front of your room.

    « Night stay prior to flying »

    We find the location and transfer to airport service excellent. Previous stay were upgraded to better unit but found the basic unit this time quite acceptable. Will stay here again. Pick up from airport service was prompt.

    « "BEST" Best Western »

    This is the best Best Western hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms were very clean, good water pressure, and very friendly staff! The rooms have mini bars in them. The wifi worked great everywhere I went. The room we stayed in even had three beds. They give you plenty of towels and pillows. It is only a few minutes from the airport and they provide you with a shuttle.

    « Clean, friendly »

    The rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped. Staff are friendly. My meal at the restaurant was good. Overall it's good value for money. My only hesitation in recommending this hotel is that I found my room to be somewhat noisy and was awakened early by the airport shuttle and other guests.

    « Great location near the airport »

    The hotel was a perfect start to our long weekend away. Close to the airport a shuttle service and parking made easy by the location. The only complaint was some late night noise of other hotel guests returning late to their room. The beds in our room could be updated.

    « Bed too soft. Pillows lacking substance. »

    Single night prior to departing on an early flight the following day. Thought I would make it easier on wife and son by staying close to airport (we live in rural town 90 minutes away) As a frequent traveler for business I stay in a lot of motels, and whilst the welcome was present on arrival and the room was clean and tidy the beds were way to soft. So soft that you disappear into the mattress the pillows lacked any substance and reminded me of airline pillows. Very little sleep was gained and at $200 for the night it was very expensive

    « Well run - friendly accommodating staff - good facilities »

    Good quality, quiet, comfortable, clean, well equiped rooms. Good conference facilities. Good food. Airport pick up and drop off as required / desired. Nice dining room - reasonable choices and great breakfast. Local bus to CBD across the road. Have stayed several times for meetings and conferences - aways good.

    « Nice Place, close to airport but noisy at night. »

    Motel is nice and staff are friendly, However I stayed in room 1 and it was right next to where the airport shuttle bus pick up and drop off spot is. People are heading to the airport ALL hours of the night and don't care that Im trying to sleep. I would stay here again but NEVER in room 1,2,3,4 its to close to this shuttle bus spot. The Motel should really think about moving the shuttle bus location. Thanks.

    « Nice enough hotel, convenient location »

    Only stayed a night before our flight. The hotel is pretty much out in the sticks but good enough location to the airport with a shuttle (the reason we stayed there). It is pretty nice though the restaurant is overpriced and underwhelming - food made both of our party feel sick. As for staff, they were odd - made both of us feel uncomfortable at any request.

    « Trip »

    We have used these guys on a number of occasions now and the last two times has been less then average. We arrived back in Melb today 8th May and had to wait 45minutes for the bus to come pick us u from the airport. In that time we seen at least 6 jetport, 4 busy beaver, and 4 Andrews buses and still no best western. After 3 calls to reception and the bus just driving past us it came and not even an apology for the delay. I think we will be looking for somewhere else to go

    « Noisy ! »

    So noisy it's like the walls were made of paper. We could hear our neighbouring rooms guests on the phone, boiling the kettle and getting up at 430am talking, packing their car etc. so awful as we really needed a good sleep. On a good note the buffet breakfast was awesome & the staff in the restaurant friendly & helpful.

    « Good clean accomodation »

    Stayed here for a few nights whilst working locally. Comfy clean and relatively quiet rooms walk in shower. Tea and coffee facilities flat screen telly. No gym though. Busy airport shuttle too Restaurant was a surprise reasonable food at not bad prices.

    « A good choice for early flights »

    We've stayed at this hotel 3 times before early flights it's a decent option with rooms quieter than the budget options right at the airport. Our room was clean and quiet. Wake up calls were delivered on time and the free airport shuttle ran on time but you do need to book it the night before as it does book out. There are a small group of shops within walking distance if you need anything last minute or snacks. Check in and check out were efficient and rooms were available immediately. They can also offer car parking for the duration of your trip at competitive rates. A good airport choice.

    « Good for airport needs »

    A little bit away from airport but shuttle bus runs regularly. We flew in late at night and we were hungry - no food options nearby, so be prepared for that. We initially booked a room with a balcony on our first night here, and got a ground floor room in the renovated had a balcony, but no door to get onto it. We changed rooms, and got the balcony, but we were frustrated and over it by this time. We were also staying here on our way home from our holiday as we were leaving our car there and flying in late at night. We chose to book a cheaper room (twin superior) for our return, and it was just as good as the more expensive option, if not better - ground level, and away from all the noise.

    « Close to the airport »

    The staff were friendly and very helpful. An upgrade was given upon check-in. The room was comfortable. Close walking distance to a pub and shops. Bus service outside doors to the train station to go into Melbourne.

    « extremely convenient »

    We stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions - the night before we left for Tasmania and the night we returned. The staff was very helpful; they waited patiently for our on-line booking to go through when we found a lower room rate on-line. The hotel stored our excess luggage for one night at no charge, saving us from schlepping extra bags on our short excursion. The shuttle service to/from the airport was convenient and expeditious. On both occasions the room was clean, and we liked having in-room mini-fridge and tea service available.

    « Surprisingly good choice »

    Others have mentioned this motel's proximity to Melbourne airport, and with an early morning flight onto Auckland as the final leg out to see our grandchildren, it made the perfect choice. The motel provides a 24 hour minibus shuttle back and forth to the airport with the drivers, James, Tom and in particular, Mike offering helpful tips and advice to ensure that we made the most of our 2 nights stay in the Victorian capital. Our stay in one of the units was comfortable from the word go, as we arrived off a very long-haul with Emirates at 10am well before the official booking in time of 2pm, and we were promptly shown to our room where we fell fast asleep until late afternoon, ( no charge). We chose to use the motel's dining on both nights, with the first night's seafood liguinie a real standout, as Melbourne is ridiculously expensive in all the bars and restaurants. This avoided the need to use dirty Southern Cross railway station in Flinders Street late at night when catching the grossly expensive Skybus back to the airport, for the motel's prompt and reliable free shuttle back to our accommodation.The staff and management were particularly helpful and informative. Thank you and highly recommended.

    « Noisy, but good shuttle service to airport »

    This is exactly what it says, a motel, with ground floor rooms around a car park. Car doors and room doors opening and closing until the early hours. Unfortunately I had to leave for a very early flight and had only had about 2 hrs sleep. Reception staff were helpful. Room was spacious and very clean. Could not adjust the height of the shower as it was impossible to tighten the wing nut sufficiently, so showered with one hand whilst holding the shower head in position with the other. Toilet seat had not been fitted properly and would not stay up. Very unlikely I would stay here again due to the noise.

    « Good Choice »

    Great location for the airport, in a nice area and good wee pub within walking distance for bistro dinner. Room clean, well presented and bed comfy. Would recommend for someone wanting close to airport.

    « Very Good Service »

    Having previously stayed in a "Budget" hotel near another airport, for just a slight increase in cost this hotel, the in room facilities, the restaurant and free airport shuttle service make this hotel a far superior option. Just 15 minutes by the free shuttle bus to the airport, the service was excellent. Bags carried to the room, a great meal in the hotel restaurant...well done chef my seafood linguine was excellent...this is a no brainer for a pre flight accomodation.

    « Gets the job done, and oddly good room service »

    Most people stay a airport motels because they're planning to use the airport, and we were no exception. At this point in the trip, it's more about utility than luxury or sight-seeing. This property is comfortable and clean enough, if a little rough around the edges. It doesn't exceed or frustrate expectations for its segment except in a couple areas. The paid internet was atrocious -- some piece of routing equipment is not behaving correctly, as the wireless signal is plenty strong, but connections get dropped and then re-established in a never-ending cycle with a period of about a minute. On the other hand, I ordered what I thought were some rather "ambitious for a motel restaurant" room service meals like lamb chops and barramundi, and they were pretty fantastic. I mean -- really really good! Also, the complementary airport shuttle service was punctual and well-run. It's not the proverbial Ritz, but it is pretty much the proverbial airport Best Western... with a great kitchen.

    « Good choice for airport »

    We stayed here one night after landing in Christchurch. It was fine, clean, comfortable and convenient for the airport. They provide a speedy free shuttle service to and from airport which was helpful.

    « Ok »

    The second time we have stayed here. Reception excellent. Room tidy and clean. Like most motels it appears they are not prepared to employ a quality tiler to repair the bathrooms. Broken tiles, shabby repair and finish. We slept well in a comfortable bed and quiet room. The restaurant meal was excellent. Wonderful flavours complimented with lovely wine. Shuttle to the airport is very reliable, though the wake up call did not happen. We will stay again. Cheers.

    « Drive in motel »

    Typical of a drive in motel in a suburban area. The advantage of this motel is the proximity to Melbourne Airport and the fact that we can avoid driving through Melbourne City itself. The rooms looked like it had been recently renovated, so it was fresh looking and had the modern amenities like free Wi-Fi, TV, bar, etc. The room was clean when I checked in, beds were made. Thought the sound insulation wasn't very good as you could hear your neighbour, thankfully they went to bed pretty early and wasn't particularly noisy. The pool area looked a little sad though. Check-in or out was easy and front office staff was friendly. My only unhappiness during my stay there was that housekeeping went into my room despite a "Do Not Disturb" sign and the housekeeping staff forgot to pull the door shut after cleaning the room. Luckily, nothing was taken from the room but this makes you wonder if the do not disturb sign meant anything at all.

    « This was not a four star motel »

    Our stay here was very ordinary. The room was very noisy and the walls must have been paper thin, we could actually hear the guest next door snoring, not to mention all the other noises such as shower, toilet flushing conversations etc etc. Very disappointing stay. Also being called the Airport motel, I was expecting it to be right near the airport, but it was about a 7km drive to airport!! Kicking myself when we saw the motels at the actual airport!!

    « Good option close to the airport »

    I stayed here on my first night in Australia. After a late night arrival I especially appreciated the shuttle transportation from the airport -- easy to find, pleasant driver, fast arrival at the motel. My check-in was instant and my room was pleasant, clean, quiet, with wifi. My only disappointment was that the swimming pool was not up and running, but the morning after my arrival was too chilly to swim anyway.

    « Excellent find »

    This is the second time of staying here before returning to the UK. Very comfortable room, lovely food and good wine, friendly and really helpful staff with efficient transfer to airport. Great value for money.

    « Good stay close to airport »

    A comfortable stay. This is a large motel.The nearby Hotel was a good meal. Free WIFI and not too noisy. Although people come and go at odd hours for the airport and you can be woken if it's next door.The motel restaurant was on reduced service.

    « Who trained this amazing Chef? »

    Rooms were basic, location in the middle of nowhere, but 10min from airport. No options for dinner but the restaurant.... but WOW!! Best Paella, great wine, great service. What a find. Loved the food.

    « Disappointing »

    While staff were excellent the bed and pillows were very hard & not comfortable so didn't have a good nights sleep We stayed & paid for the package that included 7 days car storage and shuttle to and from Melbourne airport Drop off was OK as they have set times to leave Returning wasn't OK we phoned as per instruction & waited but after 30 minutes & no pickup we called again then after another 20 minutes FINALY after nearly an hour of standing around they turned up dropping other passengers off Definitely won't stay here again

    « Good over night stop »

    Great facilities and the pool is nice. Restaurant looked expensive for what it was (although we didn't visit it). The wifi was very poor but the rooms were clean and staff attended to any needs we had. Again, although we didn't use it, the free airport shuttle bus is a great advantage.

    « Over night stay »

    The family and I stayed here before we fly in the morning. Pretty centre location. 10 minutes to the airport. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Parking out the front of the room and free wifi. The front office staff we very friendly and helpful.

    « Good basic airport hotel »

    Room was worn but very clean. The bed was comfortable and provided a good night's sleep. The hotel staff were welcoming and assisted when needed. The restaurant provided good food and drink options and we enjoyed a light dinner with drinks. The area was quiet and afforded the environment for a good night's sleep.

    « Airport accommodation but a bit far away »

    Nice to have the free shuttle but you have to call the motel for airport pickup when you arrive. Bit of a drive, about 15 minutes but great facilities. Quick check in, pleasant staff, large room, very clean, kettle, tea and coffee and cookies, stocked mini bar if you want to purchase some items. Booked the shuttle for the next morning to the airport, arrived early, nice and efficient.

    « Melbourne airport Accomodation »

    Have stayed at Best Western Airport Hotel near Melbourne Airport many times over the last 10 years.Always clean,staff are very helpful.Would not choose anywhere else to stay when needing to stay overnight before an early morning flight.

    « It's alright for short overnight layover »

    It's located 15 minutes away from Melbourne airport and they offered 24-hour free shuttle service so this was the key reason why we stayed there as we had a late night flight and an early flight the following day. We waited about twenty minutes for the shuttle bus at the airport which I hope they could be quicker next time (so call them once your plane is on the taxiway if you only have carryon). This is more like a motel and the rooms were reasonably large but was clean. The TV is large. Bathroom was clean. No mould spotted. Furnishing and decor a bit weird but passable. Free computer to use with printer at the lobby which was handy. Free wifi included. Will stay again if we only have a few hours to stay overnight and needed to get to the airport quick fast. Price is on the expensive side for what it's worth though, as nothing really stood out apart from its location.

    « Always good! »

    I use this hotel often, as the check-in is quick and easy, apartments are convenient, great shuttle to the airport and I am able to leave my car for a nominal amount whilst I'm away. Lovely meal in the restaurant, clean room, generous amount of towels and toiletries and very polite desk staff. And when I pick my car up after a long flight I'm on the right side of town too!

    « Tussen stop van de reis »

    Nice and clean rooms with friendly staff... Nice surroundings in a quiet neighbourhood....nice breakfest buffee.... A nice place to stay for a trip to the City and visiting family or friends. .. a good start for the great ocean road........

    « Motel »

    The people were friendly, the food just marginal. Had dinner and though it was late, it was not especially good. It was farther from the airport than I anticipated, however, the shuttle was good. It would be better for them to have a ramp for guests and their bags in place of the small sloped area and curb. The space into the reception area is small enough without trying to maneuver the entrance.

    « Nicely appointed for a restful visit prior to international flight »

    Were so tired when we checked in to the best Western Airport Motel, and also hungry. Our room was quite nice and reasonably priced. We ordered room service dinner, and were told it would take 45 min. We asked that it be delivered as soon as possible, and it was there in 15 min.! It was also very tasty. There is a free airport shuttle, and the staff were quite friendly. Recommended.

    « Good quality »

    We were a big family of 7 people. Stayed in three family rooms for one night. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff (Chinese speaking) was very professional and friendly! We enjoyed the dinner at the reflection area, but there were many little sands in my seafood rice meal. The airport shuttle bus was the best thing for travelers!

    « Happy Nights »

    The staff were brilliant and happy to help. The room was clean and well stocked. I only stayed for one night but I honestly couldn't fault my stay from the time they picked me up at the airport, checking in (late night), the room, breakfast and checking out they were happy and polite. I had had a long flight and was exhausted this motel was just the tonic. On my next trip I will defiantly be booking here again and telling my friends

    « Valentines Day Stay »

    Beautiful room. Clean, tidy, free Wi-Fi. Checked in then had dinner in the Atrium styled restaurant. Wonderful food, Lamb Rack / Chicken Parma and the Creme Brulle simply wonderful. Staff were very helpful & friendly. Won't hesitate to recommend. Many thanks William and Sally Held.

    « Good price, bad stay »

    The price of the room was good, the staff were helpful and the room a good standard but what let us down was being placed in room # 1 directly opposite reception and the meeting point for the airport shuttle bus. This meant groups of noisy travelers congregating outside our room all through the night and the bus driver sitting with his radio blaring at 3am. None of this conducive to a good night sleep.

    « Exactly what you need »

    Just what was needed. A nice room, close to the airport. Strong Wifi and a nice dinner menu. Offers frequent shuttles to and from the airport. A well run establishment. Stayed in a standard double room, plenty of space along with hot beverages provided free of charge.

    « Quiet, comfy and welcoming! »

    Don't let the fact that this hotel is not at the airport put you off as it is so easy to get there and well worth it. I simply called the hotel from a free phone in the airport and the minibus came within 10 minutes to pick me up and I was dropped off the next morning in plenty of time for my onward journey! The hotel itself isn't grand on the outside but the room was lovely and very clean. The power shower was excellent and very welcomed after travelling for 24 hrs! The aircon was cool and quiet...perhaps a little too cool but only because the bed was so comfy that I couldn't bring myself to get up to switch it off! Had a quick bite to eat in the restaurant. I didn't want much as I had eaten lots on the plane so went for the bruscetta but it was huge a d absolutely delicious. Throughout all the staff were very welcoming :)

    « Excellent staff make this a winner »

    We have held a meeting here for interstate staff every year for the past three years. While the rooms are basic they are always clean, the food is consistently good, but the staff are what makes this motel great. From the bus driver, to the cleaners to the front of house staff and conference organiser. Unfailingly polite and professional and nothing is too much trouble.

    « Good choice »

    I have stayed here before but this time chose an Executive Deluxe Room. I requested a quiet room and was put in the Convention Centre area. It was very quiet the whole night. The room was pleasant and well equipped. The bed was a little hard but nothing too extreme.The airport shuttle was excellent, leaving on time and getting to the airport in good time. The check-in staff were friendly and efficient. My overall experience was very good and I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

    « Proper service for value »

    Stayed one night there. Rooms okay and above usual Best Western standards in Australia. It's about a 15 minute drive from the airport with an efficient free shuttle. Note that the pool was out of order february 2016.

    « Up To Its Usual Standard »

    We have stayed a few times. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Staff friendly and helpful. Mini bus pick up and delivery to airport is great. I am not sure what standard of room we generally have but we have never been disappointed. Only issue was pool was closed for maintenance during very warm weather which may disappoint some.

    « 1 night, basic room »

    We stayed 1 night between flights, so selected for ease of getting to & from airport, and cheap nightly rate. You get what you pay for, so room was basic and dated. Upon arrival our door wouldn't lock-quickly fixed by staff. Waited 30 mins for courtesy shuttle bus at airport, (so allow plenty of time). Shower screen not able to be closed without leaving bathroom sliding door open! Limits privacy and is awkward. Curtains don't meet up so a stream of light comes in. Maintenance staff making noise right out front early in morning. Didn't use restaurant or pool so can't comment on these. ****Please get the courtesy bus driver using an ear piece instead of answering mobile while driving, much safer. ****

    « Pleasant stay »

    We had a pleasant stay here and utilized the timely shuttle service. Check in and out was smooth and rooms are well appointed and clean. Only negative for me was the noise as the rooms are terribly soundproofed, you can hear every conversion from next door. Maybe not a good choice for light sleepers. Other than this, a decent hotel!

    « Excellent corporate hotel - cheap parking! »

    Great staff, nice rooms, airport shuttle service, plus cheap car parking. Hassle free stay, thank you. Highly recommend to corporate travellers. Much easier than having separate car parking and hotel stay. Really convenient and customer focussed hotel.

    « Great airport hotel. »

    Stayed two nights at this hotel. It was clean, quiet, and our room was newly renovated. The staff where excellent especially Bec at the front desk who helped us no end. Breakfast of either continental or full was good and had good selection. Dinner was well done and of excellent quality. The steaks we ordered were cooked exactly as we had ordered them. One staff member stood out in the restaurant and that was Athena. The coffee from the barista was strong which was exactly what was needed first thing in the morning. If there was a let down it was the pool area. The tiles were lifting in places and you have to use your room towels which meant you had wet towels in the morning unless you asked for clean ones afterwards. Be careful upon entering the pool itself as there is no anti slip strips on the stairs and they are quite slippery as I can attest to personally.

    « convenient »

    We had a late night check in and chose this hotel for the price and availability of a free 24 hr shuttle bus. Signed up to the free Best Western club on arrival and got a late checkout (extended by up to a couple of hrs). The room was large and outdated, but comfortable for our needs. There were strange sounds coming from the bathroom (unsure what they were) and if you like your sleep ins, maybe not the best place as early in the morning people tend to wake you up by rolling their luggage past your room to their vehicles which are parked just in front. It's fine for an overnight stay which is what we were there for, in order to easily access the airport the next day.

    « free shuttle, 24 hr check in »

    got the hotel for the hotel shuttle and late night check in. Many hotels do not offer these services. The room was clean and comfortable. A bit more expensive than I thought it should have been. Also had a pub, but did not go to that. In room mini bar and snacks. Did not try anything, but available.

    « one night stay stopping over »

    Stayed one night at this hotel arriving late evening and leaving mid morning next day. We had a lovely family room, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Was nice to sleep in pleasant surroundings after long-haul flight. Next morning we awoke early (pesky jetlag!) so headed for breakfast. The breakfast room was light and airy and the girl that was on duty was lovely. Really friendly, interested in the detail of our trip. Breakfast had a great choice too with huge croissants ! A thoroughly warm welcome to Melbourne. Would recommend if you need a hotel near the airport. Free shuttle bus service too.

    « Good location to stay if flying from Mlbourne Tullarmine airport »

    « Good quality quiet sleep close to the airport »

    A standard motel but in a very quiet location, good beds, clean, and good value for money. They run a shuttle bus to and from the airport. I would choose here again if I needed somewhere close to the airport. Only bug bear was that the housekeeping staff rapped on the door at 9:30 - check out is at 10 am, I would expect them to know that if you haven't checked out and you're only there for one night, wait to do the housekeeping until you've checked out!

    « Near Airport Motel »

    We stayed just one night after arriving from overseas and continuing our journey by car. I'm not sure we would have found the motel without our GPS as there were quite a few twists and turns from the airport. The room was a good size and comfortable. There is no noise from the airport, but there was noise from very late arrivals who didn't seem to have a problem with calling out and getting into their unit at 1.15am! There is a local pub not far away which served a decent meal.

    « Ideal for what we needed »

    I stayed here with my two kids Xmas eve before picking hubby up from a 7:10am flight Xmas day. Although the restaurant wasn't open being Xmas eve (fair enough) we were given a room service menu, however decided to walk 5mins to the pub for a good meal. The pool was clean and served my kids well on the 35degree day. Clean tidy rooms, very comfy beds, staff fine, very convenient location cation (ten minutes by car to airport). Hubby called when he landed, so by the time I got to airport he had collected his luggage and ready to go.

    My family checked into the hotel around 10pm and checking in was hassle free. However, I'd missed their restaurant hour so had to order room service from their snacks menu. We ordered a small pizza and a chicken pie. The pizza was plain - only cheese topping but it was quite nice still. The chicken pie was surprisingly very delicious - big chucks of meat! The guest room is spacious enough and functional. Journey from airport to the hotel is around 10minutes (no traffic).

    Large room. Clean! I was kinda surprised how nice. Checkin people were nice. Asked if I need airport transportation, advised about parking. In the morning their computer printer wasn't working and guy at the desk printed out my boarding pass without charging me the $1. Single story building. 20 mins from airport. Will stay here again and do recommend. FYI restaurant is a little weird but good.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    I had a meeting near the airport today and the usual airport hotels had nothing sub $300 per night. I have stayed at best westerns before and it is a bit hit and miss. So I thought I would give this a try as it was reasonably priced. From the phone call confirming for the booking and the cleanliness of the top through to the shuttle bus and even having toothbrushes for those forgetful ones I was very happy I chose to stay here.

    « We had missed a flight. »

    Great that breakfast was still on, helping to soften the frustration of missing that flight. We needed to fill in a full day, it was an easy walk to the shops. Comfortable room, will stay next time we have an early flight.

    « My visit was for work purposes »

    I travel to Melbourne regularly for business, and I stay at Best Western Airport Motel & Convention Centre. The first time I did so, was because it is convenient to the airport, without being too close to the airport. Each time I have stayed there, the rooms have been very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast selection is extensive, and if you have a chance to have dinner at the Best Western the food in the restaurant is really superb.

    « Nice hotel close to Melbourne airport »

    When we arrived at Melbourne airport and exit the secure zone of international terminal we found that there is a free phone to dial Best Western for arranging the free shuttle. The phone is located in Travellers Services Bureau so no need to worry for the roaming huge prices. There we were given a map where exactly to find the bus. Motel is probably 10 minutes by car to the airport. Our room was big and clean. Beds were great too. The staff were helpful and friendly.

    We stayed on the evening prior to an early morning flight oversees, and found all the Staff to be friendly, attentive and most helpful. We availed ourselves of the free Courtesy Bus to the Airport after a most comfortable Stay.

    Got to motel after a month of touring in a campervan. What a wonderful room . Very clean and comfortable; complete with frig and fully stocked minibar. The motel has a fabulous restaurant which provides breakfast and dinners with excellent service. Is located in residential area about 10 minutes from the airport but has it's own restaurant for this reason. Staff is extremely helpful. Busline to city stops right in front of the motel. We got lost in Melbourne and couldn't find our way back to the motel on public transport. One call to the motel and they texted us exact instructions on how to get back using the train and bus. Free van transport to the airport. Close but not under the flight path so very quiet. Will use again if in Melbourne. And we got a great price on Orbitz for the room for Melbourne Cup Night.

    « Overnight Stay »

    Travelling from Hobart to Auckland via Melbourne. We have stayed in this motel on previous occasions when travelling overseas. The Service is consistently excellent, the room was very clean and comfortable, Reception and Restuarant staff were very friendly and helpful. The Shuttle service is fantastic.

    « Great staff and hospitality »

    Thank you to everyone for looking after me on my recent overnight stay. My flight to Bali was cancelled and they went out of their way to help me. Look forward to staying with you again very soon. Best regards Gail.

    « Could be better »

    The place is generally a lot more run down looking than in the photos, but naturally they may have been based on a few years ago. When we first arrived we were told we couldn't pay upon checkout despite the website we booked through saying the contrary, which messed with our payment plan. They didn't offer us any alternatives nor to leave a passport or valuable item as a bond. Food has been good. Room service however; attendants were all rude or just too shy to speak. A simple hi how is your evening going is enough to please me, food was handed to me not brought into my room as I expect in most places that offer this service. They messed up our order after waiting an hour which apparently was sent to the wrong room and told us the meal was on the house, then told us when it arrived only the juice and dessert would be free. On top of that we ordered two juices and they only gave us one.. Forgot to bring us ketchup with our fries. The room was 50/50 - lovely and spacious and exactly what we needed. Our shower head won't stay up however, and I had to hold it while I washed. Also had a black residue on my feet after hopping out. Beds comfortable and bedding perfect for the climate. Air pump helped control the changing temperatures too. Neighbours were incredibly loud next door on both sides so I don't think the sound proofing is the best here. Overall average. I have worked as a room service attendant at a 4.5 star hotel and though this is just a motel I didn't expect the service that we got. The staff members are either lovely or the opposite - seems to depend on who is on shift. Didn't try the restaurant but heard people raving about it.

    « Convenient Airport Hotel »

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel recently after arriving fairly late at Melbourne Airport. They offer a very useful free shuttle bus to/from the airport. First impressions were not good as the Reception entrance looks more like a back door rather than the main one. Once in the check in procedure was fine although the reception area is rather small and unimpressive. The rooms are situated in various two storey blocks. Ours was fine - once we had found it (which wasn't easy). There is a basic but adequate restaurant.

    « Ideal stopover for airport »

    Very courteous staff, excellent clean room with all facilities you would expect. Situated an easy 20 minutes drive from airport even in morning rush hour. Pool good, although disappointed spa temperature was only marginally better than pool.

    « Great Place to Stay when using the Airport »

    We stayed one night before flying out to Brisbane. The rooms we stayed in were very nice, and at a reasonable price. We had a meal in the Restaurant which was very nice but a little expensive. You are able to leave your car at this motel for only $8 a day, which I feel is a great price. All in all we will be back again.

    « Overnight for travel overseas »

    We were very impressed. Clean, tidy and well looked after. Staff friendly on arrival and helpful. Shuttle bus for morning travel to airport is a big plus. Quiet location. Nicest place we've stayed at for awhile.

    « Extremely Impressed »

    The cleanest rooms I have seen, with everything presented as it should be. The staff were smiling and only too happy to help out. On our check out day, my aged fathers wallet was driven to the airport in an empty shuttle bus, as he had left it back at the room, I believe they made a special trip to deliver it. As a result we were able to catch our flight and make it back home. I rate this Motel 6 stars out of 5.

    « Good value airport hotel and surprisingly very good food. »

    About 7km from Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport. The rooms at this motel / conference centre are typical of type. Ours was clean, comfortable, well equipped if a little compact. A little noisy at times with people coming and going but this is a hotel close to a busy international airport. The most impressive experience about our stay was the quality of food we were served at dinner. The restaurant area was bland and fairly unimpressive but the food was truly exceptional, most unexpected. When we arrived and checked in we told the staff we needed to return our rental car to the airport that evening. They said when we had finished doing this phone and they would send someone to pick us up which they truly did. Excellent service, well done.

    « Okay for one night if you want to stay close to the airport »

    We had a four person room for one night: Clean and quiet room, but pretty simple and small - nothing special. Good for one night if you want to stay close to the Melbourne International airport. Free parking and internet.

    « Good value »

    We stayed here prior to flying interstate. The room was clean and tidy. We were able to leave our car onsite for 24 hours until we returned from South Australia for only $8. Shuttle bus to the airport was prompt on both journeys and the driver was very nice. Will certainly stay here again.


    Stayed here for one night prior to our overseas flight in an executive room. Room was very clean and spacious. Free shuttle bus to and from airport is a real plus (no problems whatsoever). Friendly and informative staff. Recommended and would return.

    « Very convenient location »

    Needing a place for 2 nights ,we found this property . Proved to be a great choice . The rooms are large and clean , with individual parking slots .. The staff are very friendly and accommodating ..WIFI is free . As a added bonus , for those who require, a transfer to airport is available .

    « Perfect for before a flight »

    My wife and I stayed here for one night before we flew to Adelaide. Staff were friendly, room was clean and comfy. The room has everything you need and if you don't fancy eating and he restaurant there are lots of local takeaways. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive from most terminals and the shuttle bus is an amazing plus and makes life so easy. I would stay here again without and seconds thought!
