Bill Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

When we arrived we went to the room I had booked for myself and my son. There was only 1 bed made up. Then we noticed the fridge was leaking. I opened the fridge its seal was ruined and the fridge had a tray in it overflowing with water out the door. I emptied the tray and used the bathroom towel to dry the floor. The towel became black with dirt and hair. Then when we looked at the bead there were food crumbs beside it. We ended up having to share the bed because there was not enough bedding for 2 beds. The matress on the bed was hard and made it a bad night to stay.

Horrible

Located Close to Work, Reasonable Stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Darren Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

It was in a good location in relation to where I needed to go Found mattress fairly uncomfortable (well used) Reception staff were very helpful

Cheap and cheerful

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anne Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We arrived just after 9pm and thankfully reception was still staffed despite being after the advertised closing time of 9pm. Check in was easy. Room was basic but ok for the price paid! The air conditioning was a bit noisy and was blowing hot and cold as the thermostat kicked in and out. This resulted in a disturbed night sleep (too hot/too cold!) Otherwise, it was cheap and cheerful for a night on the way back to Sydney from Tasmania.

Well located and good stay

Chris Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Checkin - reception staff argued with customer over "continental" breakfast that he had paid $9 and was offered a mini box of cereal. Staff member offered no apology or solution and seemed indifferent throughout. Roo had clean sheets and towel but the smoke alarm was wrapped in toilet paper and there were cigarette burn marks on the sink and in the shower. Red nail polish (?) stains on the bedside shelf looked like blood. Aircon was noisy even on low setting. I know this a budget hotel option but I'm glad I was on my own because if I'd had my wife with me, we would have left. Cleaning supply rooms were left open so piles of laundry and cleaning mops and buckets were on display. I've stayed in cheap hotels and motels before but this honestly felt like a prison with fluro wall lights, bolted on tvs and concrete walls. The spray painted smiley faces and slogans in the stairwells feel more like graffiti than corporate advertising. I was happy to find my car still in the carpark, overwatched by other guests clearly smoking out of opened windows and glad to leave before 530am. Would not recommend and will definitely not be staying here again.

The room was dusty, with insects and the airconditioner was covered with dust. The linen was dusty and the linen on the other bed was undone, all full of dust.

Great location close to airport

Morgan H. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Easy booking and check in process. Bathroom door did not shut or lock which was particularly annoying considering that the toilet was running water throughout the entire night. Was loud and kept us awake. The bed sheet and cover were wet on one side of the bed in a big patch.

Really Basic

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Belle Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

Extremely basic accommodation. The door was hard to open once unlocked from the outside. It took quite a hard push to get the door to open, especially with a pre existing condition. The room should of been cleaned properly prior to booked for the night, not just a quick surface clean. The rust in the base of the basin made me hesitate using it for anything. The toilet, bath mat and the entire bathroom floor ended up being covered in water as soon as the shower was turned on. On the morning of check out, I wanted to pay extra for theI buffet breakfast but the entire front front area was screened off and padlocked shut. In spite of these issues, I had planned on booking in for another night the following weekend on the morning I checked out. However even with signage stating that reception was open from 7am no one was the at 8:30 when I left.

Quietest stay in Melbourne

Cheryl S TripAdvisor review

Rooms were clean tidy and all amenities easy to use. No traffic noise and the staff were excellent. A very well positioned place to stay with easy access to all Melbourne has to offer with public transport readily available and numerous places to dine out nearby.

Great location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Frankly_2159 Business - TripAdvisor review

Having limited accommodation choices and needing to get a work trip or 2 done between COVID lock downs I found the Ibis Fawkner seemed to fit the bill. It worked out to be quite good, great if you consider the price! The room was tidy and comfortable, the staff friendly and the location exactly what I needed. I stayed there twice and found dinner choices nearby to be worth the 5 minute walk. The aircon was a bit noisy, fixed by turning it off, and the room stayed comfortable all night. The best thing was it was individual to the room, so no chance of a random spreading event. I am likely to stay there again if there are needs to for me to visit that part of Melbourne again...

There is a train line that runs next to the place but i did not hear it at all and just up the street is the Station you can get the train in to the city at the end i would stay there for my next time i come over.

Terrible stay

The reception is closed and so are the main doors after 10pm. If you forget your keys, sleep in the car or book another hotel. And because the reception is closed, there’s teenagers knocking on all doors in the middle of the night. DO NOT STAY HERE.
