So easy and convenient
Great place to stay prior to an early flight. Ciloms is a one stop option with bistro and restaurant for dinner and on site car park and shuttle bus to and from the airport

Urbnsurf visit.
My friends and I stayed at Ciloms Airport Lodge because we had booked Urbn Surf wavepool which is directly across the road.Very convenient for this and they gave us a later check out due to a 9.00 am booking at Urbnsurf.Will definitely stay here again.
Michael, au1 night trip with friends
Very good 8,0
Close to airport.
Staff quite friendly & helpful. The motel is older, but quite clean and maintained. Having a restaurant on-site was very handy. The main issue we had was the noise from other guests; there is not a lot of insulation in the walls.
Ruth, au1 night business trip
Good 6,0
Reasonable rates.
An average airport stopover hotel that could do with a makeover. Convenient and reasonably priced.
Noel, au1 night trip
Fair 4,0
Convenient but very underwhelming
We chose Ciloms for the convenience of location to Melbourne Airport and extended parking. Check In and Out was efficient and staff were very friendly as were the Airport transfer drivers. The images online sadly do not reflect how tired and unkept this accommodation actually is. The room we had upon entry had a pungent smell of cigarettes, we immediately opened the door to the balcony to find cigarette butts and a full ashtray which would explain the smell within the room. This may be ok for some but we did not enjoy our stay.

Very welcoming and friendly, helpful staff. Yes, I recommend this motel and will definitely use again. The free shuttle service to and from the airport is a bonus.
Angella, au1 night trip with friends
Fair 4,0
The stay was going well UNTIL iwe get a phone call at 12.30am telling us that our delivery was ready to pick up, asking What Pick Up I got told to come to reception, so telling the guy that we had no delivery and I was not coming to reception, we did not get disturbed again, But then I could not get back to sleep and as we were up just after 3am this was not appreciated. I do not understand why they have to phone the room and not the mobile number that was used to order the food, the reception needs to change this policy.

Perfect for urbnsurf trip
Comfy motel across the road from urbnsurf. Could not be any more convenient! Room was spacious, bed was comfortable & clean, great hot shower, plus little balcony with clothes horse available for hanging wetsuits. Nothing fancy but has everything you need & we would very happily stay again. Bistro served tasty meals & were open til late, staff were lovely.
