    « Great location, great service »

    We stayed here the night before and after an overseas trip. This hotel is near the airport and a shuttle bus half hourly is free. We left our car here while away for $8 per night. Upon our return the car had been parked right outside our room. Staff are very polite and helpful. We will stay here again as it is easy to get to and great value.

    « Happy Happy Happy »

    Sick to death of over priced city and surrounds hotels this place is well priced well located for the airport and has all you need. Friendly and prompt check in. Room clean tidy and comfy. Free Wi Fi and a restaurant on site.

    « Good facilities and service »

    Very convenient for a two day meeting with national colleagues. The motel's airport shuttle bus made the arrival and departure easy and very well appointed rooms made for a comfortable stay. The conference facilities are good and the staff looked after us well with catering. Adequate dining room serving good meals from 6pm and happy hour bar service from 5pm. Friendly and efficient staff.

    « Amazing food & convenient to airport »

    Firstly I must mention the food (I should have taken photo before eating). Best steak I've had in a few years and that's saying a lot as I travel and eat out every week . The baked tomato and potato was delicious and the red wine jus was given generously. Yum yum yum! My husband loved his steak with seafood and garlic sauce too. About the room. They have done a wonderful job refurbishing an older hotel and bringing it to the modern era. Very clean with opening windows if you want fresh air. It has very easy to use split system and the room we were in also has a spa which was a very welcome surprise . We were in room 29 . I would suggest asking for a room upstairs or right down the end if your wanting a sleep in. This is a popular hotel due their shuttle to the airport . I heard the first shuttle go at 4.30am. So if your wanting to sleep late this would keep waking you every 45 minutes I think. In saying that, if your going to the airport the shuttle is comfortable and a huge bonus. It took us 6 minutes to airport but that was at 5.15am. Could be slower later in the day due to traffic. Bed was great too. The hotel is well lit and has a nice swimming pool. No complaints . Service very good. We will be back .

    « What's not to like? »

    What's not to like? Convenient to airport in a residential neighborhood, airport shuttle, fully controllable a/c, 42 inch flat screen (not HD however) , desk, two chairs, fridge, safe, no microwave, hot water kettle, free good internet and parking with a restaurant. Oh yes there was something...in room 56 when lifted the toilet seat would not stay up...tsk tsk. Clean and handy.

    « Only 10 minutes from airport - very comfortable »

    Arrival at hotel - good service from their airport transfer and lovely welcome from a very friendly receptionist who was equally competent. Rooms were clean, very spacious and functional - good wi-fi. Restaurant was very good - wide menu selection. Wake up call and transport from room to airport - excellent service. Very impressed and would have no hesitation using this hotel in future.

    « Convenient Location, Staff make this #1 on my booking priorities »

    This is not a 5 star hotel, but it is an excellent value for money motel. Staff here really make this motel what it is. Always smiling, always friendly and always there. I have stayed at this motel about 3 times now. It is very convenient to Melbourne Airport with shuttle service included. First time I stayed here, first impression walking down the hall was not good, but get into the room and it changed my perception with lovely renovated rooms. Great value for money and will always be my #1 pick for accommodation near Melbourne Airport.

    « Very comfortable stay »

    I was attending a seminar in October 2017. And the room was neat and great. I love the menu of the restaurant. I had dinner there every night. My favorite was the risotto. Breakfast was just as good. Nothing to complain about. I felt very comfortable. In June 2018 I will attend a week training at their venue and I've booked another room near the convention centre. They were very friendly and swift in helping me find the right room. I think the price is great for what you get. Nothing fancy or chique, but just a good place to stay. Happy to return back. Also, their free shuttle bus service was great. Just 20-30 minutes from the airport. On my last day, I could leave my suitcase at the hotel and explore Melbourne. Then went back to pick up my suitcase and went off to the airport. I was really happy the shutlle bus service was free.

    « King size bed!!! »

    Loved that there was a king size bed, not a double as we usually find, room looked nice however the cups/spoons didn't look very clean and neither did the face washers, so made us wonder what else wasn't clean... rooms were not very sound proof for an airport motel with people coming and going at all times of the night

    « Comfotable stay »

    Stayed at this motel over a Easter break.We landed at Melbourne airport and enquired at aiprort information center about our pick up. They pointed me to nearby phone and dial their reception free of cost. Pickup arrangement done over a phone and pickup van arrived in 25 minute opposite terminal2 . Motel is not far from airport, we arrived early and they let us check in early that is so good. This place is well connected to public transport ,bus stop is just outside motel. Motel also can drop you to nearest train station between 11am to 5 pm. Public transport is impressive here. Our room was nice , not much of a good view. Their buffet breakfast is yum. we stayed for 2 nights. Traveling to Melbourne CBD took about 40 -50 minute. Melbourne airport is just 15 min drive. Enjoy your stay.

    « Room location was diabolical »

    Although staff were friendly, they were unable to offer us a change of room when the first one allocated (75) proved to be a very long walk from reception and facilities, with steps to negotiate with our luggage. This spoiled our visit entirely. Breakfast was good and we were offered help with luggage the next morning - otherwise we'd still be struggling to leave. Good location for the airport wit convenient shuttle bus.

    « An ideal hotel for the night before a flight out of Tullamarine »

    The initial impression as you arrive is not the best. The reception entry door is an uninviting solid door in a plain wall. But once you're through the door into the small and plain reception area things improve. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. The young woman who checked us in was charming and insisted on helping us take our luggage to our room. She set us up with a reservation for their airport shuttle for the next morning and also a wake up call. The rooms, motel style, are generously sized. Ours had a queen bed plus a single and there was a fridge and all the usual furnishings. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. I couldn't guess when the bathroom was last renovated but the workmanship was dreadful. Everything functioned except the shelf in the shower which sloped such that soap etc. slid off. But the owners of this hotel let themselves get ripped off by the contractor. The materials used were okay but the installation work was very slapdash. We slept well and our wake-up call was on time. The airport shuttle picked us up from outside our room right on time and took us to the airport. The driver was friendly and helped with our luggage. We were tempted to try the dining room as the menu looked good but ended up snacking in our room as we were very tired. We were pleased with our stay.

    « Ideal airport hotel with transfers »

    Excellent hotel in an ideal location for airport, yet in a suburban surrounding. Reception staff absolutely brilliant. Room very good - large, roomy, well equipped and clean. Plenty of parking and free airport shuttle. Has restaurant and bar - happy hour 5-7pm Would definitely stay there again.

    « A servicable airport hotel for a great price. »

    The free shuttle comes each 1/2 hour and takes about 15min to get to the motel, though this was quicker on the early morning return to the airport. The check-in was fast and efficient. I was surprised by the size of the room - larger than any other airport hotel/motel I've stayed at. The restaurant had good honest food and the prices were also another pleasant surprise. Didn't get to use the pool.

    « Excellent service »

    Came in late to Melbourne from NZ. Shuttle arrived very promptly after we rang. Room was nice and clean, roomy and well presented. Left early the next morning, had rung reception to let them know we wanted to catch the 7am shuttle back to the airport. Arrived at reception and it had already gone, however they organised another smaller shuttle to take just us so we arrived on time. Very impressed with the service and would definitely stay again.

    We have stayed here 2 times after traveling from Newcastle N.S.W. For treatment at the women's hospital. Staff are very helpful rooms art clean and service is 10/10. Will be staying here again in April for 7 days and recommend a stay for anyone and free airport shuttle is a bonus along with 24hour checkin and checkout .

    « Excellent!!! »

    This hotel is close to the Melbourne Airport and has a free shuttle service. The room was large and very comfortable (3 beds!) It was clean and the wifi worked well. The amenities are very good. The restaurant there is excellent. The wine and the meals are very reasonably priced. The staff is very helpful.

    « Great place to stay »

    Both my husband and I stayed here on separate days. I cannot fault the service. Staff very friendly and accomodating. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. The buffet breakfast was a good start to the day.I would recommend this place to stay. The shuttle drivers were great even taking us to the shopping centre and picking us up along with the airport pick ups and drop offs. Thank you Michael, David and Paul. Also a thank you to Bec at the front desk for looking after us.

    « Mobility issues »

    I stayed here with my mum who has mobility issues and the staff were great. They gave us a bigger room than the one booked by the travel agency and nothing was a problem for them. The shuttle bus is awesome. They even took us to the shopping mall.I will definitely be coming back. Also the Restaurant staff were outstanding. The breakfast waitress even gave my mum a huge hug when we left she made us feel so special.

    « Great place to stay if you have an early flight »

    We booked this motel purely on its location to the airport and that it offered a shuttle service to the airport with the opportunity to secure parking while you were away for $8 per day. The receptionist, Martina, was very helpful on arrival and our room was what you would expect for a motel, basic but very clean and with everything you would need. The bed was a little 'bouncy' but overall, we slept ok and received a prompt alarm call the next morning as we had to be up early. We had booked into the restaurant beforehand and were impressed with the selection of meals, not we expected from a motel restaurant. The restaurant staff, Noelene, Valantina and Courtney were cheerful and welcoming. Courtney, who was one of the restaurant supervisors, was very attentive to our dietary needs and came back twice to check certain aspects, which we were very impressed with. Our food came exactly as we had ordered and was tasty; my paella was surprisingly not bad at all. My only gripe, and it is a small one, is that there wasn't a suitable dessert for a gluten and lactose intolerant person- maybe fresh fruit or a sorbet? We were very happy with our overall experience at the Best Western Motel and would definitely return if we had an early flight again.

    « Awesome, friendly and efficient staff »

    My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and found the service at both check in and check out was outstanding. Bek served us and made the process super easy., she was cheerful and helpful the entire time. Getting into Melbourne city was easy via bus and train and we were given a myki card b the staff for our use. There is a hotel and a couple of eating places nearby, also an IGA store. We had dinner one night at the motel restaurant and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Would highly recommend. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. All in all, a very enjoyable stay. Thank you!

    « Impressed with this motel »

    I booked this motel so that I could be near to the airport for our flight the following morning. Travelling with my elderly mother I wanted someone nearby where we could have a good nights sleep and have a leisurely morning ready for our homeward journey. Chose this motel as it seemed very suitable for someone with mobility problems Our room was close to reception, recently refurbished to a high standard. the food in the restaurant was really very good, not what I was expecting for a motel! We used the free shuttle bus to the airport, our driver was so helpful and real credit to this motel. He took our luggage,helped Mum into bus and ensured we were dropped as close as airport as he could get.

    « Disappointed, not coming back »

    We had decided to come back to stay after an average previous stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. We were greeted by a young man Arron who was very helpful and helped us with our luggage and organise transportation to the airport. The restaurant was very loud as is it was very busy, so we had dinner in the couch/lounge area which is near the kitchen. The meal was okay, although my steak was very tough and tasted old and I could hear the chefs in the kitchen yelling and swearing constantly which made my husband and I feel very uncomfortable and startled. We could constantly hear the kitchen bell ringing and kitchen staff screaming which really let us down for a quiet night in a nice "restaurant". Really disappointed, and won't be coming back.

    « Fantastic stay »

    I booked this motel for a business trip. Hassle free with the airport shuttle. A quick call and someone was send over to pick me up. Staff were all great, very professional and helpful. I have also used the restaurant, great portion were big at reasonable price. Overall, it was a great stay. Will definitely come back.

    « Good,clean and close to airport »

    It was a nice place to stay. Close to airport and for guest who is not driving there is a free shuttle to airport. I would give 5/5 if the place close to tram or train services. There is bus stop in front of the motel and close by but it took a while to reach train station.

    « Clean, Comfortable with Pleasant Grounds »

    This was a perfect place to spend the night before my flight out the next morning. I had an enjoyable dinner there, too. The breakfast was also good. The grounds around the pool are pleasant and well taken care of. I made a good choice. [2016]

    « Perfect stop over »

    Time and time again I have stayed at this hotel and every time it doesn't disappoint. The staff are always friendly and willing to help wether it be by looking after me while in the hotel or by just pointing out what's to do around the area. The hotel has a free shuttle bus which will pick you up and drop you off from the airport and the restaurant has got a pretty good menu and bar. All in all this hotel is great if you are flying in or out of Melbourne wether it be for business or for family travelers.

    « Well priced and convenient to the airport »

    Good points - great bus service to the airport, friendly check in at counter, good food at the hotel restaurant, close by to local park with playground, good value price, clean, ironing board and iron in room Not great points - water not hot enough in the shower, beds too firm for my taste, restaurant on the expensive side, not friendly service when initially calling from the airport (assuming this is not common as check in staff at arrival where very good), furniture and bathroom is starting to look tired. Overall, I would stay here again if commuting through Melbourne airport based on price and convenience.

    « The best feature was the fact it had a roof »

    Terrible for a brief stay. The experience started with our pickup from the airport. It took half an hour for them to arrive after calling. Any hotel that calls itself an airport hotel should be a maximum of 10 minutes from the airport. Once they finally arrived, 2 vans arrived, both with visible damage to them. As a family we had to split across 2 vans as they were seemingly overbooked. No clear instructions were given as to how to handle the situation. The van ride itself was the worst part. I sat in the front seat next to the driver, and my god am I glad I had a seatbelt. He consistently sped at 15 k's over the limit, and struggled to figure out how to use a brake. His body odor was revolting and he burped on numerous occasions. He did not talk once the whole ride. The accommodation itself was not much better. The directions given to access our room were incorrect, the hallways carpets were visibly dirty, the walls had marks all over them, there were soap suds throughout the bathroom, I had stains on my pillow, and there were hairs in the bathroom. Worst of all was a suspicious red stain on the lamp shade that looked disturbingly like blood. If you are considering this place as an airport hotel, think again. It is neither close to the airport, or a nice hotel. I'd give it less than 1 star but it won't let me.

    « Convenience plus! »

    This place really feels like a home away from home for us as we have used it a few times now when flying and picking up our friends. It means our holiday starts before we even fly. The car gets handled, the kids can swim and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Having the shuttle service just makes the whole trip stress free.

    « Free shuttle from and to the airport »

    Guess most people staying here arrive late at and depart early next morning from the airport. And so we did. The biggest asset- a free shuttle from and to the Airport is offered (even if you arrive around midnight- just call them). By the way, their shuttle stop at the airport is right in front of the entrance to terminal 1. Rooms are average motel style- nothing special, but no need to complain

    4
    « Excellent service »

    We stayed here for one night before our onward flight. Our room was number 65 and faced the back. It was quite a way from Reception and we were offered help with our cases. The double room was a decent size and the bed was very comfortable. Facilities in the room were the usual kettle, fridge, mini bar, safe, iron & board, tea & coffee. There was two easy chairs and a writing desk, T.V. and hair dryer. Bright modern bathroom with a good powerful shower. Our check in was quick and we were offered a wake up call. We also booked our morning transfer to the airport. They will collect you from outside your room if necessary. Friendly, polite staff. We didn't have breakfast here as we were away early. The have a restaurant on site and also do room service. Free WiFi. Recommended.

    HI I only spent 1 night at this motel near tullamarine Airport in Melbourne and this motel is great. pro: Late check in and service is excellent (I arrived at 12 midnight and check in is fast) Family rooms are good, enough and spacious for 3 px Rooms are clean and spacious. Shuttle to hotel is excellent - on time and driver is courteous and even drive a little further down the airport driveway to alight us at domestic airport so that we walk less with luggage (we are a family of 3 children and 2 elderly) Room rate are affordable and all toiletries are provided.

    « Fabulous motel close to the Airport »

    I reviewed this Motel about 18 months ago.....I'd like to update that review now as we stayed there last month again. I cannot speak highly enough of this Motel...there is nothing about it which could be better. The rooms are spotless and very comfy..delightful beds, clean bathroom, beautiful, soft and fluffy towels (thank you to the person who read my last review) , and it was lovely to have great tea-making facilities, not so common in e.g.Paris . And I must add that the breakfast is one of the best we experienced on our holiday to UK and France. Coming home to delicious sweet fresh fruit just topped it all off. A wonderful Motel, very close to the Airport with a shuttle Bus which will transport you to the airport at any time, night or day, Delightful staff, smiles and friendliness galore. Love this place.

    « Convenient and value! »

    We stayed here for one night - the shuttle service worked perfectly, reception staff were friendly and professional and the room was spacious, clean and well furnished for a comfortable stay. We only rate the motel average because of the road noise that did affect our sleep - we were in room 95 right at the end of the building close to the road. The restaurant is a bonus when staying here. We would stay at this motel again.

    « Convenient »

    Living in a rural town we find it difficult to align flight times with getting to Melbourne airport on time, for this reason we've stayed at this motel 3 times now. It has free transfers to & from the airport and is clean & comfy for a one nights stay!

    « Within a 10 minute bus ride to the airport »

    I stayed here after arriving at the airport late at night and before collecting a hire car from the airport. The room was adequate clean and well fitted out with what appears to have been a recent refurbishment. Everything worked and the windows were double paned and sound insulation was good. There is a shuttle bus to the airport every half hour. If economy is paramount this motel is a good choice.

    « A pleasant surprise »

    We booked this hotel last minute, and at first were shocked when the shuttle pulled up to the motel complex. It is set in the middle of a residential area, right next to a park. This place was old school motel, with rows of single-story rooms lined up everywhere. The check-in lobby was old school too, like one would find in a Motel 6 in the U.S. Our room was nice and clean, and had a queen bed and a twin as well. It was not as nice as some of the refurbished rooms shown by some travelers on TA, but it was good enough. There was a work desk and the bathroom was functional and clean, if a bit outdated. There's even a fully stocked mini-bar. The bed was wonderful, the sheets were soft and the water pressure in the shower was good so I was a happy camper. It was the next morning when we opened the door, waiting for our friend to pick us up, that I realized how awesome this place was. There is just something magical about opening up the motel room door and looking out into a sort of courtyard, and having that breeze blow in, and to be able to just walk outside and enjoy the sunshine and relaxing environs. Breakfast was great, about $17uspp . Great selection, fantastic coffee. Overall a nice surprise, would definitely stay here again if in need of an room near the airport.

    Only stayed one night unfortunately, were up early for our flight home, our room was comfortable and clean and quiet. We had a beautiful meal at the restaurant. All the the staff who attended to us were cheerful and helpful. Our waiter passed on our complements to your amazing chef, who in turn came and spoke to us, so we were able to complement him personally. Will defiantly stay again. Our stay and meal was the highlight of our short break away.

    I have stayed here four times now and never been disappointed. Rooms are always neat and well presented. Very good value for money when looking for a stopover hotel. Reasonably priced and with their own free shuttle service to and from the airport, just 10 mins away, this is the perfect place to break up a longer trip.

    « Central location directly out of the city »

    Room's were fantastic with the size of the beds ideal for a small family. Firmness of the bed was at high standard for any fussy traveler The free WiFi is at a fast speed Bathroom is a combined toilet & shower in the same room Your far enough away from the city not to be in the city but close enough to all the attractions. The food in the restaurant was at high standard The staff no matter who you dealt with were always friendly

    « Pleasant stay before early morning flight »

    We chose here due to the free shuttle bus to the airport rather than stay at any of the on site airport hotels. The room was fairly standard but comfortable,clean and spacious. The onsite restaurant provided a good evening meal and a bonus of a spectacular sunset.

    « Suprised »

    When we entered the parking lot I was wishing that we had selected a different airport hotel. However, that was not the case - you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. The rooms are very dated but extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. We were leery about eating at the hotels restaurant but the food was excellent. I had pasta with seafood and my wife had barramundi- both were incredibly tasty and fresh. Good hotel choice if you are looking for a airport hotel but not if you want to visit Melbourne CBD.

    « Free shuttle bus to airport »

    If you have a layover in Melbourne this is a great option - only 10 minutes from the airport. For those not from Melbourne - the airport is a long way (20km) from the city. If you have a layover its a long and expensive trip into town. So you are best to stay close to the airport. This hotel had a free shuttle bus to the airport which we used. You can book it at reception. Saves you a $20 taxi fare. The rooms were excellent. Newly refurbished and really clean and modern.

    « The worst sleep ever. »

    We stayed here or a business trip, so weren't expecting anything flash. But the beds were HARD! Like cheap mattress get the hardest one hard. It hurt my body to roll over. Sleeping on the floor with a blanket would have been the same. When turning back the sheets, there was a big red stain on the sheets? Eeewwww...... The room was small and dingy. But what you would expect for the price. The bed was dreadful though...... that's the reason for the poor rating. The motel is also very tired looking... needs a good bit of love to freshen it up.

    This is our fourth stay here when flying either into or out of Australia. Always a great place to stay. Friendly service, clean well appointed rooms and a very nice restaurant (best cheese board ever). There is a shuttle between the hotel and airport for pickups and drop offs. It will also drop you off and pick up from the Broadmeadows train station between 10am and 5pm. Car parking available. We will be back.

    « Fantastic value. »

    Recently my family and I (4 adults and 1 child) stayed at the Best Western Airport Motel - 33 Ardlie St. Attwood Vic., before flying up to Sydney to board a cruise ship. The accommodation was excellent, large, and had everything you wanted. We could leave our car there for the 11 days that we were going to be away (for the cost of $4.00 extra!!!!!). The next morning we were driven to the airport (10 minutes away) and picked up when we returned. Everything was so easy and very well organised. Would definitely recommend it.

    « clean environment. just need more management on arrangement. »

    It is a great place for transit, close to airport. Thanks for 24/7 airport shuffle. Drivers like Mr Peter are polite, helpful and information. Morning Asian Driver is polite and courtesy. We booked a time for shuffle to train station. When time approached, it was changed. We booked for picked up, and then it was told there are no pick up from train station. We then have to raise our voice then we got it! We booked again for shuffle to airport. When time approached, it was overbooked! Manager in charge on 19 September after session is a bit too aggressive in rude way. Just have to double or triple confirmation shuffle booking.

    « Very clean and comfortable »

    We spent one night here to be close to the airport for an early flight. The room was very clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. There's a refrigerator in the room. They offer airport shuttles every 30 minutes day and night. We were also able to print off some things by using their desktop computer and printer. Very friendly place. Didn't use their pool or restaurant.

    After reading such positive reviews and a much cheaper price, which included a buffet breakfast, we decided to stay here. The location is 3km from the airport but it does have free on sight parking and also a free shuttle bus to the airport. The rooms are spacious, clean and welcoming. Our bed and pillows were all very comfortable. The bathroom was large and very clean. Tea and coffee facilities are provided and also free wifi. The breakfast buffet was an excellent selection of hot and cold foods and hot and cold beverages. All very fresh and delicious. We will happily stay here again but now know to request a room away from the entrance as unfortunately we were woken a few times in the night by the shuttle bus.

    « Beds need electric blankets »

    We unfortunately stayed here the night before our flight which was one of the coldest nights in Melbourne this winter and didn't arrive until about 11pm at night. There was no electric blankets on the beds and the heater took hours to warm the room up. We all slept in our clothes because it was so cold. It wasn't until about 3am in the morning that I finally felt warm enough to take off my jumper. Your beds need electric blankets - would have slept so much better. Apart from that the room was nice and quiet.

    « Fantastic Location And Great Service »

    The hotel is located very near the Melbourne airport which makes it very convenient for a short stay or when your flight is arriving very late in Melbourne. It is a small property but very neat and clean and very well maintained

    « Fabulous location close to the airport »

    We have stayed here 3 times for the convenience to the airport. With me being a non city driver, its easy for me to get to. Its super quiet with very comfy beds. We've eaten at the restaurant and had room service - all good quality food. The airport courtesy bus is a bonus as is being able to leave your car at the motel for a small daily charge.

    « Good for overnight wait for connecting flight »

    « Not great »

    Booked this hotel as it's close to the airport and I gave an early departure, nope won't do this again. Even though they have a courtesy shuttle you need it to get to your room from the reception! I was put in the farthest building from the reception/restaurant! Being from Queensland I'm feeling the weather yet when I asked for a closer room it was denied. Had to wrap up in all my winter clothes just to go have dinner, which was also a disaster - seperate review for that seafood extravaganza!!!!! The beds not even that comfortable but the room as a whole is nice. Nope wouldn't recommend pay the extra and stay at the mantra!

    « Good Value and Location if you want to be near airport »

    Good clean facility. Good staff service and the breakfast offering was good. It was a very cold winters day so the heat pump struggled to heat the room up initially. Advise would be to keep it running in winter if you want to come to a warm room.

    « Convenient place to stay »

    Walked into friendly smile at front desk. Shuttle bus to and from airport very good for our early morning flight. Restaurant onsite very good for an old couple like us who cannot walk to far. Tess was very lovely, very warm and welcoming, juggled us a room closer to reception but not to close where we will hear the shuttle bus (which she warned us about the noice) she was attentive and took her time with us even though there was a line of people waiting and phones ringing she multitask her way and still made us feel like the only ones there. We will definitely return back and join as Best Western members. The room was lovely and heater worked wonders. From the old couple.

    Staff helpful, especially Michael the shuttle bus driver, very good service. Food in the in-house restaurant was excellent. Our room was very clean, beds reasonably comfortable, pillows not that good. Room service was prompt. Keycard to room problematic, had to keep going to reception to have it reset. All in all a minor complaint! Highly recommend Best Western. We will stay again.

    « Great night before very early morning flight. »

    Room was clean spacious enough with tea and coffee making facilities and everything required for a good night's sleep. Staff at Reception were great, efficient and friendly and could not have been more welcoming. The very early morning call was a life saver, followed shortly by a knock on the door with the driver being ready to takes us to the Airport at some ungodly hour of the morning. I am a Member of Best Western and this Hotel/Motel stands with the best of them for service and satisfaction.

    « Night before flight »

    We stayed here the night before an early flight. Room (comfortable and quiet) was down the hill down a steep and narrow driveway (scary!). Our wake up call was on time as was the bus to the airport; we also left the car there while we were away (a good per night rate). Got picked up on our return and they had moved the car to the top car park which pleased me! We'll stay again ...

    « Would NEVER stay anywhere else »

    We have been customers of Best Western Airport Motel & Convention Centre for approximately 10 years. Even though we live in Melbourne we are in the Outer East and find that staying here before and after our holidays is not only convenient but something now that we just have to do. The service is nothing short of amazing. Nothing is too much trouble. The free shuttle service both too and from the airport is fabulous and really takes the stress away from getting to early flights or travelling home from the airport in peak city traffic. We love that we can leave our car with the motel and for a small fee it is looked after like their own. We actually feel like it is our hotel now and wherever we go we recommend it to everyone. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much. Oh by the way the hot chips are the best around and we love happy hour. :)

    « Very convenient for airport, clean and tidy. »

    15 minutes from Tullamarine airport via free hotel shuttle bus which is easy to book and arrived promptly. Staff very friendly. Room was fine but very cold (weather was cold when we stayed) thanks to a big gap under the door and large window. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on that. Room amenities very good. Situated in a residential area so not much to see or do around there unless you hire a car and use it as a base. Ideal for a short stay oven route somewhere else (which we were).

    I had to go to Sydney on a day trip and early flight, I chose this hotel because they have a free airport shuttle and parking is included all day, very convenient and helpful staff and the room was clean and comfortable.

    « Expensive but convient to airport »

    Stayed Wednesday 21st June for one night. We had booked a twin room online and when we got to the room it only had a double bed in it. Back to reception and changed to another room. This room was situated in a better part of the complex and easier access to the room with parking just outside our room. The room was tidy and clean, bit dated but still ok. Only complaint was that the air conditioner struggled to heat the room and was very noisy to keep on during the night, next morning we had to scrap ice off the cars windscreen. This motel has 24hr checking and free shuttle bus to the airport. Free WIFI was a bonus. We did not eat at the onsite restaurant as the prices were expensive, there is a good pub close by which we made use of.

    « Well fitted and brilliantly organised for airport stopovers »

    Airport pick ups and drop offs are well organised and available for your schedule. Motel room is clean, well fitted and has anything most people would require. It is a big place, so if you are mobility limited it would pay to advise them at the time of booking. Otherwise it is a great choice for an airport stopover.

    In a convenient location to Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport with their own shuttle bus and with public transport right outside in the street. This is a great venue for the business and casual traveller. It also has a full conference facility and on site restaurant, ( very tasty food too). Rooms are clean well appointed and equipped, beds comfortable and with easy chairs. Staff a delight to deal with, highly professional but with a welcome personal touch making the customer feel really welcome. The restaurant provided good tasty meals with a well balanced menu. Well done to all.

    We booked in overnight for an early flight next morning. It is usual motel style - but what a surprise when we opened the door. Great king size bed - crisp white sheets and plenty of lighting in the room (unusual!) Reading light - what more could we want! Tea making facilities and biscuits ! Renovated bathroom with glass shower screen, everything spotless. Shuttle service - free - 7 minutes to airport. You need to book when you check in or at the airport if flying in. Would we stay here again - yes we would - we have booked a return for September out and in to Tullamarine. Well done Best Western - we were most impressed.

    « Superior Room? »

    Booked Superior Room. Clean but tired room. I would be a bit concerned if we booked budget! Restaurant was a disappointment. Had dined here 12 months ago and it was delicious. Unfortunately this time our meals were over cooked (and it wasn't cheap), some of the seafood was had like little golf balls. Noticed that there were plenty of people staying at the motel but were not dining there. We later found out that they were all going down to the very popular Westmeadows Tavern that provides great meals for super prices! Best Western has a regular turnover of clients for conferences and going to the airport ? they need to lift there game with the restaurant to attract the extra dollars from people already staying there! Airport shuttle service is good but make sure you confirm the booking times for the shuttle, allowing for a 15-20min ride to the airport before check in (allowance time) at the airline.

    We stayed overnight here before an International flight. I cannot speak highly enough of the service provided by the Courtesy Bus Driver "Tony" and also the Manager. Packing our last minute belongings the night before for an early start, our Travel folder" fell off top of case down between dresser side and waste paper in. Each thinking the other had it, we arrived at airport to find neither of us did!! Tony was on the phone, it was found in the exact place I have said. The Manager drove to the airport and handed them to us. Now that is above and beyond service. Heartfelt thanks to both. Room was very comfortable and very clean. Would definitely stay there again.

    I stayed here in order to catch a connecting flight the next day. The bed was comfy and rooms clean but 2 sets of lights didn't work The door didn't lock so had to rely on the chain which for a woman by myself I wasn't happy with. The skirting board behind the door was almost coming off. Breakfast was lovely and the staff were great but was pricey! Airport shuttle is an added bonus so no paying for taxis. Good for 1 night but I wouldn't stay here for longer.

    We booked in here as they offered free airport pick up and we were arriving late. Really nice place, if somewhat convuluted to get into the central city from! (Bus plus train). Nice surrounds : both a park and suburban housing area nearby. Good facilities and set up but probably best for overnighting only due to its non centralised location.

    « Perfect place to stay close to the airport »

    Our usual hotel close to the airport didn't have any rooms available to accommodate our small family, so we booked here. So happy with our choice. Check in was quick and easy, and with a smile :) Our room was neat, tidy and actually quite roomy for a Queen + Single. We had a lovely meal at the Reflections restaurant on site, there was no mention on the website or the info in the room if there was a kids menu, but they do have one. A good variety on the kids menu too. There is a small cluster of shops about 500m down the road that we found useful as we had to do a quick trip to the chemist...good to know when you're travelling with small kids. It's a short drive to the airport, and they offer a shuttle service. We are back in Melbourne towards the end of the year, and no doubt we'll be back here then.

    « Good choice close to the airport »

    We chose this motel as we were catching a morning flight and wanted to be close to the airport the night before, but didn't think it was worth paying the price that is charged by hotels right at the airport. We had a room under the convention centre which is slightly away from the main area, and was spacious, clean and quiet. At first I thought we might get some traffic noise from the road outside but it was very quiet at night. The rooms have been recently renovated with a good bathroom and shower and a very comfortable bed. The motel is very busy, as to be expected being close to the airport but we were checked in quickly and the only minor issue was there was no breakfast menu/order sheet in our room, we had to go back to reception to get one. Room service breakfast is rather pricey so we opted for the buffet breakfast in the restaurant. Everything looked nice and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are lots of people coming and going all the time so it probably is 'pot luck' whether that is happening close to your room or not, but being a bit further away under the convention centre meant we didn't have any parking out the front of our room and cars being started at odd hours. All up it was a good experience.

    « Hotel is Good Shame about the Food. »

    During the weekend of the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne a colleague and I needed a room close to the airport and my favourite hotel was full but I managed to get a room at this Motel. It was quite expensive but we had no choice and were happy that they had an airport shuttle service and an onsite restaurant. Checked into the room at 2pm and it was a good size with two beds and a good sized well-fitted and clean bathroom, so we had everything we needed including free parking. I booked dinner when I checked in just in case it got busy later and was advised of a Happy Hour which kicked off about 17:00 so we headed to the bar for a glass of wine. We selected a New Zealand Chardonnay and the glasses were large, generously filled and cheap. Eventually we had a look at the menu and my colleague, who is Gluten and Dairy intolerant, selected a filet steak with whatever potatoes and veggies the chef could provide to suit his allergies. I ordered two entrées; a smoked salmon dish and a small dish of Arancini served in a tomato sauce. We were called to our table and the restaurant, which is bright and modern with floor to ceiling glass walls, was starting to fill up. We ordered a bottle of wine to have with dinner and that arrived promptly along with my first entrée which was delicious. Eventually the steak arrived and my second entrée so we were all set, however the steak looked overcooked but the only way to test it at this stage was to cut it open and see. It was way over-cooked, not medium as we had requested and as you know when you overcook a filet it ends up like boot leather. By now we had been in the restaurant close to an hour so we had to call the waitress and explain about the steak which should never have left the kitchen. She agreed and said that she thought the steak was overdone when she collected it to serve, but she served it anyway. We called the senior person in the restaurant who arrived promptly, apologised and immediately returned the steak to the chef. Considering the steak was almost the most expensive main on the menu the fact that it arrived with literally a paltry number of roasted potatoes and a few steamed vegetables, was unacceptable. It seems to me that some restaurants will happily publicise that they cater for Gluten and Dairy allergies but many simply cannot be bothered to provide a safe alternative to the regular fare - it's NOT that hard - really! A new, correctly cooked steak arrived eventually after I had to ask a waitress to check on its progress after about 20 minutes. By the time it arrived I had finished my second entrée. The waitress appeared to check everything was OK and to advise that all drinks on the bill were being supplied free of charge. We thanked her and really felt sorry for her having to deal with a Chef's error and we never saw anyone from the kitchen yet. Surely it should be within the capabilities of any quality restaurant to provide a correctly cooked steak and be a little more creative when it comes to dealing with food allergies? This was a poor experience handled very well by the restaurant staff and very poorly by the Chef and his team. On balance a good place to stay if you are travelling through Melbourne airport, excellent shuttle service, free parking and comfortable clean rooms but I wouldn't recommend the restaurant apart from the friendly staff.

    Let's start with the room was comfortable and bed. Tea and coffee were provided. This was convenient to Melbourne airport with free shuttle pick up. The restaurant was very expensive, but I guess they had a captive market and they took advantage of this. I was very disappointed with the price of $175 but it seemed to be one of the more reasonable places. Not a lot of options close to the airport under $150.

    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.

    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.

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.

    « 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!

    « 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 !

    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.

    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.

    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.

We initially booked a room with a balcony on our first night here, and got a ground floor room in the renovated block...it 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

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.

    « 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.

    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.

    « 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.

    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 :)

    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. ****

    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.

    « 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.

    « 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.

    « 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!
