We wanted to stay close to the Coolongatta Golf Club for a combined family reunion and Birthday. Checked out other motels in the area and decided on the Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel. We were not disappointed, Karen the owner took our booking and we were upgraded to a delux room simply by booking directly with the motel. All rooms...

Super friendly owners and very obliging. Exceptionally clean room. Older premises but nicely renovated. Great value continental breakfast that was only$10 extra for the room. Good location. Ideal for passing through. Not really set out for extended stay. Well worth it.

Booked through TripAdvisor based on excellent reviews and price. Easy process, quickly confirmed by the motel email who also sent great directions. Booking in on arrival was fast and friendly and Karen was happy to recommend places for dinner to suit our budget. Loved the shade sails over car parks which also helped keep the hot Qld sun off the...

Good position. Well appointed rooms. Very roomy, modern & clean. Owner, Karen was the perfect host, suggested a place for lunch & dinner. Both were very good & close by! Another added touch in our room on arrival was a sachet called a "grooming kit", how cute was that! It included nail file, cotton buds, makeup removal pads and a...

My boyfriend and I chose this cute motel late night while driving up to Brisbane. Karen was so helpful! She left specific instructions on our phones on how to pick up the key and also left milk for us. We also had a voucher number for wifi. Karen also left a map for us with local restaurants and scenic sights...

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. The rooms have gone through an upgrade with new bathroom and a very comfy bed. Very good value for money here and only 5 minutes from Coolangatta Beach. They have all the little extras you come to expect like free WiFi, Foxtel, tea, coffee and biscuits.

To catch an early flight the next day, we decided to stay near the airport for a night. Best western motel was quite near the pier for tweed river cruises and the seagulls club. It was only a 5-min drive to the airport. In about 10 minutes' drive, there is a tweed mall with a Woolsworth & a Coles attached...

Upon arrive was greeted by Karen who was very welcoming & friendly. My room was upstairs and away from the main road so was very quiet. Room & amenities where very clean. Would definitely stay here again as it was also close to everything. Room was cleaned every day (I stayed for 4 days) and fresh towels where supplied daily....
