Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This motel is old style. Could do with a little work, but this shouldn't put you off. Close to everything. Close to the ferries, which makes life really relaxing if you don't want to drive in the city. Manager was lovely & helpful. Very friendly. The Hamilton Pub is just over the road for good food, and the suburb of Hamilton has plenty of cafes.

I arrived at this hotel expecting a nice place to stay instead I found the bathroom covered in black mold. The mold if a towel was placed next to it got covered in mold. It was everywhere. This is extremely unhealthy and just horrible. I will never stay here again

The place has a homely cozy feel to it with the room having the amenities you would be looking for like the tall dining table area that has the tea, coffee and kettle with the microwave. I quite liked the clean bed linen and the fluffy pillows. The bathroom is compact as it must be. The manager to the place Ms Lin, was very friendly and very helpful with all sorts of information you may want related to Brisbane. Riverview Motel is conveniently located close to the river side which is beautiful for a lovely morning or evening stroll. Also just twenty minutes away from the Central Business District in Brisbane not mention quite a few dining options I less than ten minutes of a walk from Riverview Motel.

We stayed overnight at the motel prior to embarking on a cruise. The room was comfortable, clean and met our requirements. It was also able to accommodate 3 people and was conveniently located near a supermarket, restaurants and the airport. The decor is very dated and the room could use a coat of paint but this did not affect our stay. A free shuttle bus to the cruise terminal is available and the room rate of $138 is great value. The staff were also very friendly & helpful particularly Ling who was more than happy to help with any issues.

Stayed at the Riverview Motel for 1 night arrived after hours, good communication with owners in regards to late checkin - close to the Brisbane Airport. They do have a courtesy bus which will take you to the cruise terminal or airport which is fantastic. We also had a cancelled flight so had to get last minute accommodation and just rang the motel as we had stayed there before all was easily arranged for us, this was much appreciated. About the room itself bed was very comfortable clean sheets and towels also microwave supplied in the room. It could certainly do with a facelift as it is a very old motel I found the lighting very poor and certainly the bathroom needs redoing, but overall for $130-$138 per night was reasonable and staff were very friendly. I would certainly recommend this Motel to anyone looking for a short stay near airport, brisbane city itself.

The place was dirty and looked nothing like the photos. Carpet absolutely filthy. Ridiculous arrangement of pictures on the walls no doubt to try and cover up the aged wallpaper. Outrageous bathroom with a filthy shower curtain. Rusty furniture around the reception area

This motel is clean and comfortable. The owners are friendy and very helpful. Its a 1 minute walk to the Hamilton Hotel for a meal and they offer a free shuttle to the airport. Whilst it is not the newest motel in the area, its location and comfort are excellent.

Excellent location, very quiet, very clean, exactly where and what we needed. Staff were lovely and accommodating as well. Will stay again if we need to come to the city again, and it's so close to Eat Street!

Great value! This was the perfect stay for us during our very long layover. We really liked the Hamilton area and were able to walk to restaurants and the supermarket. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed a relaxing stay and we’re very appreciative of the ride back to the airport.

Great family fun motel, clean and comfortable, close to airport, local shops, restaurants and river ferry for a scenic trip to Brisbane CBD. Lovely hosts who go above and beyond to offer great hospitality, including a free shuttle to the airport or cruise terminal. Will stay again.
