Needed a good hotel close to family and this fit the bill. Very clean and comfortable and the staff were always friendly. Rooms advertised as renovated but our kitchen was a little old compared to families but was still functionally. Pool was a bonus and kids loved it however we could only use it 1 day out of 4 as it was a bit too dirty. Had 3 staying in room (child on rollaway) but only got supplied with 2 towels. Called reception for another and was advised it would be received when room was serviced (which was daily) but it never arrived. Over all a comfortable stay and not too noisy.

Motel was old and first impression not that good. However room was clean and spacious, as was the bathroom which had been updated. We did not use for breakfast, but microwave and crockery and cutlery was made available for evening meals.
Outside area, carpark and surrounds does need to be tided up and then keep in reasonable condition. Would be happy to recommend to a friend, where their use was similar to ours, that is, was purely for sleeping purposes.

It is what it is, budget.
While the exterior itself isn't overly pretty, the lobby is clean, bright and reasonably modern.
A simple dining area is available with a basic but decent range of food for breakfast at $9 p/p. Toasters, microwaves etc are also available for communal use. As is a laundry.
The queen room my fiancé and I stayed in was more than sufficient for our overnight stay. Be aware though, the entrance to the room itself and the bathroom are raised so may be awkward for those with walking difficulties etc.
The bed was clean and comfortable. The "bathroom" was adequate if not reminiscent of a budget campervan/airplane bathroom, the sink is located at the opposite end of the room though. Bring toiletries as only bar soap is included.
A good flat screen TV, kettle, bar fridge (empty), provisions for instant coffee and a small desk are provided.
Being on the ground floor at the front of the building, privacy was an issue if you wanted to have the blind up. The carpark (a good size and free) is right outside, so cars are parked almost at your window and people can very easily see in.
All in all, Ibis Budget Dandenong provided a safe and clean option for those looking for basic accommodation out of the city.

Just a little more than 30 km southeast of the city centre, Dandenong is considered an outer Melbourne suburb. Tucked in the foothills of the mountain range of the same name, Dandenong boasts a multicultural heritage, and is a successful centre of manufacturing and commerce. Highly recommended is a scenic drive into the Ranges, with a mandatory stop for Devonshire tea.
