I stay at the Ibis after cruises that start/finish in Sydney for one or two nights maximum. It's a basic hotel with not a whole lot in the way of creature comforts. The rooms are nice and clean and there is a little cafe in the foyer but it's usually closed when I want to eat there so most guests are directed to the food court in Harbourtown.
If you were asking for a one night stop before a cruise or the like, I'd say it's great for that. Clean, comfortable and in just the right place but for a weekend R&R for loved ones, go the Novotel. The Ibis is the cheap option for that hotel chain and is only one step up from staying at a Formule1 motel.
