This is a great place to stay if you need to sleep. Large parking lot, quiet location, close to the airport. They can make arrangements for late night arrivals if you let them know when you are coming. Not far up the same street as Andrews for parking you car and getting a shuttle to the airport.

This hotel is convenient as it is so close to Brisbane Airport. the other plus is that it was clean. Unfortunately there was an awful smell from the drains in the bathroom. The restaurant was only open from 6 - 7 pm and the shuttle bus pictured on the website only goes TO the airport to drop off and only... More

We needed a hotel close to the Airport and it was also close to the car rental company we used. The hotel does say they have a free shuttle to the airport but be aware that it runs 3 times only in the morning. It will cost about $23 by taxi, I got an online quote from yellow taxi's just... More

Lovely clean rooms, great big beds, room a little tight with a porta cot in it though. Nice little balcony but over looks a car park. Has plates and cutlery but wasn't sure how or where to wash them once we used them. Great distance to airport and also runs a shuttle bus.

This motel is located close to the airport and is quiet for it's location - that's about it. The bed was the MOST uncomfortable bed we have ever experienced and we travel extensively.It was so bad, we did not stay the second night we booked. The furniture is old, the towels are grey and thin and the rooms need updating... More

Very friendly staff, clean and spacious room, pity about the mosquitos on the patio..... shuttlebus to the airport early in the morning was perfect! Had a meal in the cafe that was ok, and again conveniant, the nearest place to eat is... More

Clean and well appointed. Convenient to airport. Pretty good value for money. Very small shower. Low score because all of the linens stank of BO. Towels, sheets and pillow cases were all freshly laundered but they all reeked of BO. I got in at midnight after my flight had been delayed by eight hours. Best I could do was empty... More

We stayed here for one night last week as my daughter and friend were going to a concert at Entertainment Centre. Beds were huge, pillows were a bit hard although I did manage to find a soft one, rooms very clean and provided microwave, fridge, cutlery etc. Bathroom clean with shampoo, conditioner and soap provided. There is a $25 early... More
