Stayed here as we were leaving for overseas early the next day. The staff were very helpful and there were good restaurants nearby. Very quiet even with the railway across the road. The trip to the our parking , just outside the airport was 5 minutes away up Nudgee road.

This Best Western has the advantage that is isn't on the ever active Kingsford Smith Drive but its still only 5 minutes from the airport terminals. I can't say its a quiet spot as its opposite Doomben railway station but I never heard a train. Its a quick easy (well lit) walk to Racecourse Road for dinner options and also... More

I have stayed at the hotel for 13 nights, and the receptionist over there was cutting money from my credit card, without any authorization from my side. They have also cut money after I have checked out. I don't know how that happened. Terrible experience.

Regards to your review. On receiving your first email I replied under 2 hours explaining the situation that we had a relief manager on at the time you checked out and accidentally charged you an extra night. We immediately refunded this back to your credit card. You spoke with my manager shortly after this the same day and Sookie fully... More

Booked thru wotif and arrived to the smallest room with No AirCon. Open the window & the room is far to noisy, so had a very stuffy night indeed even with a fan on. It was clean tho I can't fault that. But at $135.00 per night you think it would have Air Con. & I think there are far... More

Thank you for your feedback. As explained and agreed by yourself on the web site when booking on wotif you booked our non standard room . This room is priced for budget concious travellers and is discounted down as this room is much smaller and has no air conditioning. This is similar to when you book a discounted fare with... More

Ideal location for my partner and I as we were flying out of Brisbane and wanted to stay close, but not too close to the airport. The staff person at check in was helpful but forgot to mention that Best Western is affiliation with Qantas. We did not notice that signage until we were departing the next day - missed... More

Great place close to the airport, Just for one night. Great to have free wifi. Nicely presented and super comfortable beds. Odd smell in the room, which was not nice. The pool was freezing. Would stay there again.

We booked this hotel for a 6 hour layover between flight, from 2 am to 5 pm. It was close to the airport and the staff was very helpful and flexible. The manager even greeted us at 2:30 am to make sure everything was alright. The room was clean and comfortable so I'd recommend them any time.

We had a very nice and quiet room within a few miles of the airport and also close to several restaurants. The manager was very friendly and helpful as well. I would highly recommend it for a stopover on the way to the airport. The only problem was that we left so early in the morning we did not get... More

Good location. Close to airport, horse racing, take out food. Free wifi was fantastic. Bed was comfy, breakfast was good. Free computer and printer use in office for printing plane tickets. Convenient parking, microwave and fridge were great to have. Overall really happy. Even the trundle bed was comfy for my son.

Hotel was very clean and comfortable and equipped with microwave and mini fridge, toaster, coffee and tea supplies and small balcony with table and chairs. Wifi was included and worked well.
