Clean but very dated. Hairdryer sparked and vanity was cracked. Walking distance to Eat Street and port made dinner very easy. It's also right around the corner from Brisbane Airport Parking which was great. Friendly counter staff and easy check in..

It is located close to the airport but the taxi was still $30. Not sure if this is because taxis are really expensive in Brisbane. The best thing about it was that we could leave our car there at very low cost while we were away for the week. It is a older style building and quite dated but the... More

I didn’t actually stay there. Why? I made a booking but did not receive confirmation. I rang to ask for it but still didn’t get it. I rang again the following day and was told that there was no reservation for me. I booked elsewhere. The next day (it was a last minute booking) I received notice that my Credit... More

Close to the airport and quite cost efficient! The room I had was quite comfortable and clean! Comfy bed! There wasn't a lift to get up to the 2nd floor so lugging a heavy suitcase up and then down again very early in the morning wasn't good!

easy to book and check in. Friendly helpful staff and clean rooms. Plenty of good eating nearby. Close to Brisbane airport and offers a shuttle bus at a reasonable price. We would definitely use this hotel next time we travel.

Recently had an overnight stay at the airport motel. The place has some good strengths and does have some improvements. We had asked for a family room away from the street which we got. It was great - no noise evident from the busy Kingsford-smith drive. Room had Mosquitos....and a tin of spray. We dealt with them pretty quick. Proximity... More

nice clean convenient motel close to the airport. Nice staff, helpful, which is good as they dont have a lift and you have to haul your bags up one or two flights of stairs if nobody is on hand to help. Reasonably priced and comfy bed, good shower. They have room service but I would advise you to avoid the... More

Its proximity to the airport is the only reason we went here. We left early preferring to hang out at the airport rather then stay. The bathroom needed a good clean of mold and even with the air conditioning on the road noise was evident. We didn't sleep well at all.

Very basic accommodation, overpriced for what is on offer. We had a "family room", being the only one available. Very small room, double bed snd one single bed, one plastic stool, one drinking glass.

The hotel is clean and comfortable ideal for an overnight stay. If you struggle with stairs ask for one of the limited rooms serviced by a lift. We were unaware and had to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to room. Limited eating options within short walking distance. Very close to airport parking.
