There are an abundance of good hotels in Moncton which are convenient to the airport and also offer a wide range of amenities and things to experience. I chose based on the following criteria: proximity to the airport, value based on  price, freebies offered, and interesting things to do nearby. Just because you have to catch a plane, it doesn't mean you have to stay at a boring hotel!

Pros
  • Free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, free airport shuttle, free parking
  • Many guests praised the hotel's location
  • Numerous compliments were offered to the hotel's staff
  • Several lodgers were pleased with their modern and comfortable beds
Cons
  • Some guests were displeased with the level of noise transfer during their stay

This hotel was highlighted because it is the closest to the airport at about a 1-minute drive. It provides guests with free shuttle services to the airport making it very convenient for those who may be travelling very early in the morning or want to reduce their overall travel time. Other freebies include the all-important breakfast, Wi-Fi and parking. Although it's a little out of the way, it's only 14 minutes to downtown and has an indoor mineral pool. It's also has high ratings from guests with an average of 8.8/10. There's no restaurant on site, but I hear there's a Tim Hortons next door.

Rural Moncton inn 10 min to town with spacious rooms, jacuzzi suites & free hot breakfast

Cons

  • A couple of guests found the inn hard to locate
  • A couple of guests thought the rooms were a bit tired
I had to tell you about this place, mostly because it's situated across from a public golf course! Just think of it, you can walk over (in 10 minutes) and enjoy the beauty and quiet surroundings of the course through a game of golf without paying expensive hotel resort prices. A golf game costs $30 and if there's no breakfast at the Inn for you, have it at the club! (There's a restaurant and lounge open daily at the golf club from May to October.) This hotel is a 4 star, but has no pool or restaurant. Some room rates come with free breakfast and all guests get free Wi-Fi and parking. Guest reviews reveal high customer satisfaction with an average rating of 8.4/10. The Auberge Wild Rose Inn is only 7 minutes to the airport and 12 minutes to downtown.

Tips For Staying Near Moncton Airport

Location
Located just a mere 15-minute drive from downtown Moncton, the Greater Moncton International Airport (YQM) is actually located in the city of Dieppe. With Highway 11 a 3-minute drive away, it's easy access for those looking to explore the area by car. 

You'll want a car to explore the optical illusion of driving up (or is it down?) Magnetic Hill, located a 14-minute drive away. Also nearby is Fundy National Park, at a 23-minute drive.
