This used to be a Formula 1 hotel now taken over by Ibis. It is close to the airport and there is a convenient shuttle bus for $6 per person. However, it only cost us $13 for a cab for the two of us (from the international airport), so do your math on the one that works best for you.
Next door to the hotel is a Krispy Kreme doughnut factory where you can get piping hot donuts and behind that a KFC. The hotel also offers a cheap simple breakfast for $9.
The rooms are very basic but the beds very comfy. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room.
Slowish lifts, just leave an extra 5 minutes to get downstairs.
Overall, for a cheap hotel, it was good.

Stayed: April 2014

Came in late on international flight and to fly out early next day, so - a clean room at a fair price and on easy location in safe and no-nonsens hotel - was needed. And I found that here. So - perhaps not flashy or with much more than above to offer. But it did the trick. In, sleep, out, move on. That sort of place.

Room Tip: up high, away from road

I recently stayed at the Ibis Budget Sydney Airport because I couldn't get a flight home the night I arrived in Sydney. Some of the airport hotel prices were way too above what I wanted to pay for so I opted for this hotel. I liked that I could walk to the domestic airport and the price was the cheapest I could find. I was apprehensive at first but in the end my room was fine, I thought it would be a lot worse but I got what I paid for which was BUDGET accommodation. My room was clean and smelled fresh. It was a good size for a travelling single and each floor had dispenser machines for snacks, coffee and drinks. Staff were fine and take-away establishments were located over the road for convenience. I would stay here again if I had to overnight in Sydney.

I'm listing this as 'very good' because I mean, 'For the money, it delivers'. No point being picky about small things. Our room was clean; basically equipped; good comfortable bed, and the bathroom was fine. No noise whatsoever. My main objective was to find somewhere inexpensive but not too downmarket, for an unavoidable stopover between flights. I would certainly stay again.
