    5/5 Excellent

    Not bad, good size.

    Great location right next to the freeway. Friendly staff especially Ali at the front desk, give that guy a pay rise. Only complaint I would give was I had a problem with the lock/swipe card not operating properly.

    Stayed 1 night in Oct. 2019


    Toilet didn’t work, window seal wasn’t adequate so the freeway noise was terrible

    We got fooled by the Ibis name, but it's easy to miss the "budget" suffix which places this somewhere between filthy uni share hotel meets hobo refuge. Bathroom was made of plastic and looked like an airplane toilet, room stunk of cigarettes and you can forget about the buffet breakfast we were promised as they refused to honor it the next day. This place is not much better than sleeping in your car.

    4/5 Good

    Staff were helpful and courteous. Room suited my needs for the trip I was on. Close enough to the city.

    Stayed 8 nights in Sep. 2019
