Week 1 ok, Week 2 OMG Air-conditioners rather old and not very good. Owner was great but his male staffer berated the customer publicly for asking the previous week to get batteries for TV & aircon and called the customer a winger. Staff probably need customer training.

We recently had an overnight stay at Best Western 85 to be able to get to the airport for an early flight, when arriving at the accommodation receptionist was helpful & pleasant but once we got to the room that's where it started to go downhill. Once we opened the door we were greated with an extremely strong cleaner smell,...

Thank you for your review and comments. Sorry that we didn't meet your expectations with your recent stay with us. With the thousands of travellers and guests that visit our motel each year, there is only a small amount of guests who have commented negatively on our cleaner and sanitiser fragrance. Personally this is a pretty good result of our...

We just stayed overnight after a flight from Perth. Rooms small but adequate,bed comfortable,linen spotless,as was the bathroom. Good for what we wanted,as it's close to the airport, and lots of choice of eateries within close driving distance.

Large and comfortable rooms with a small kitchenette! Train station right outside the front! You did have to change trains to get to the airport but I think you'd get straight down town without changing! Not the healthiest breakfast selection maybe, but still! I'd rather get something than nothing. Highly recommended anyway!

We had an overnight in Brisbane on our way to New Zealand for vacation. We got out of the BNE airport after 10 pm and 36 hours of flying. We were exhausted and Brisbane was warm and humid even at that time of night. We knew that Uber operated in Brisbane so we took one to the hotel which we...

Location was excellent and within walking distance to Portside wharf where there are a number of fantastic eateries. Also a great location if you're heading to Moreton Island, 10 minute drive to the ferry wharf. The hosts were friendly and the room was clean. Continental breakfast, free parking and free wifi were included which was an added bonus.

We stayed over night. The room was clean and modern and the beds were really comfy. It was great being able to park right outside our room before an early flight. Management were great and excellent at returning emails, answering questions. Didn't get to try the breakfast (left too early) but dining area looked great.

My daughter and I stayed overnight at this motel on our way home from Brisbane to Melbourne. We arrived around 8.30pm and while reception was closed we were given clear instructions on how to access our room. The motel is an older style and our room had been nicely modernised with fresh clean sheets, tea and coffee facilities and a...

Very typical Aussie motel. Suited all our needs for one night before driving to Noosa. Not that far from the airport, cab fee about 25aussie dollar?(IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY). Clean, comfy, late semi-auto check-in a breeze. There is a Thrifty next door! So don't pre-rent a car online from the airport Thrifty and have to take a cab back there...

The motel was for my parents to stay in after they arrived home on a long flight late at night. Given the hour of arrival the management were very helpful and i was told the bed was comfortable and the breakfast simple but delicious.
