Our first stay at this motor inn and we are very impressed with the location. Only a short walk down the hill to Queen Street Mall and all Brisbane has to offer. The bed was comfortable and the room was appointed with everything you need. The rate was cheap and even included free parking. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a few nights when we needed a place in Brisbane at short notice. Clean rooms, good for a young family, central location. Car park difficult for 4wds to enter/exit but it is free so another good feature. Overall not bad for what we needed.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and yes the car park is a little tight as it is an old building. We do have 34 car parks for 54 rooms so on occasion we don't have enough spaces. This is why it is free as most motels in the CBD area who have a space per room charge between $25 -...

Terrible. Stayed for 2 weeks and the whole time the only cleaning done was making our beds (pulling the sheets up, not actually changing the linen). Not once was the bathroom even wiped down, mopped and the rooms were not once vacuumed. Also glad I had a small car because the park was horribly small and only around 20 car...

Guests were informed about the cleaning schedule and could request towels etc at any time from reception. Due to it being a holiday period I chose to keep our rates low (no holiday surcharges) so that guests didn't have to pay high prices. Housekeeping was available at other times but if a guest chooses to have a DND sign on...

I am glad you found the staff helpful. It is correct that the restaurant was closed over the Xmas period (reopens 9th Jan) but as the restaurant is part of the motel & guests numbers are limited over this period, it is not financially possible to charge such inexpensive rates (we are in the CBD area of a capital city)...

It is great that you can have your say about my staff on tripadvisor whether it is true or false but you didn't write about your behavior and I feel my staff handled the situation appropriately.

Metro is a home away from home for us, the ladies on reception are always friendly, rooms spotlessly clean, great decor and very reasonably priced, the central location very convenient to the Queen st mall for shopping and arterials north and south for the beaches.

Over the last 18 months I have stayed at the Metropolitan Motor Inn 3 times mid-week on visits to Brisbane. It is located on a busy Corner, however my rooms have not been noisy. It is an easy walk to the CBD and the Central Railway Station. It is great value for money and with undercover parking available at $10.00...

Thank you for your lovely review and I will pass on your message to Maureen - it is great when guests acknowledge hard working staff. Others are quick to criticise so when the staff get mentioned they are over the moon.

On first looks you may think this motel is a run down disaster however once you have aired your room you will notice the spotlessly clean room! Our room had a new bathroom- basic shower but great use of space. The other hidden surprise is their restaurant- offering great specials and home style meals! It's close to specialist doctors.

Thank you for your great review. Yes the building was built in the late 1950's but we have recently completed a massive renovation. The restaurant serves $10 lunches Monday to Friday and a 3 course dinner for $24 Monday to Sunday - best value in town.
