This is a budget hotel as the name implies and you generally get what you pay for at such establishments. We stayed prior to a morning flight and found it perfect for our needs. Reception staff were friendly, professional and efficient and the room was basic but exactly all you need for an overnight stay. Only issue was that even though we had pre-booked and prepaid our room, plus additional parking and breakfast, we were asked to pay for parking and breakfast upon arrival - surely it would be a simple process to show on the computer screen that we had prepaid for these extras and not have check-in staff appear clueless about our booking, which was made through their own website. It was no big deal at the time and easily resolved but shouldn’t have happened.
Walked into Mascot for dinner - 10-15 minute walk - this was a better option than the fast food available right next door to the hotel. We had no problem with noise in our room and will happily stay here again. The buffet breakfast is basic (as you would expect for $9 per person) but is perfectly adequate and reasonable for the cheap price. We were able to leave our car on site while interstate for 5 nights for a very reasonable price and it was a very comfortable 10 minute walk to and from the domestic terminal if you don't want to use the shuttle service provided (for an additional small fee although it had been included in our accommodation package if we had wanted to use it - walking was probably quicker though !!).
My hubby had inadvertently left his computer in the room after check-out and only discovered this while on the plane so it was a great relief when we arrived at our destination and he called to find that they had already found the computer and placed it in their office safe until our return. Very grateful for the honesty.
Overall, highly recommend this Ibis Budget accommodation - it is budget accommodation - no more and no less - very difficult to complain for the price and handy location. Will definitely stay again.
