Our family of 5 stayed here the night before we were due to fly out of Brisbane to Singapore to avoid the stress of the early morning drive in traffic from Gold Coast to Brisbane. We chose the Riverview Motel for three main reasons - 1. They accommodated all 5 of us in one room. 2. They are so very... More

We had a short three-night stay in Brisbane and booked this as it is close to Racecourse Rd and the airport. The location is fantastic. It is very basic but well run and clean. They were most helpful when I requested a bit of extra cutlery and a microwave as I was eating at home in the evenings. The Hamilton... More

Stayed here due to close proximity to the Cruise Terminal at Portside. Such a convenient location a short walk from the river and city Cat terminal, Racecourse Road and the Hamilton Hotel, great for dinners. Excellent value for money considering it is in such an expensive residential area of Brisbane. Clean motel style rooms and friendly adequate service from the... More

What a great find in one of the cities most affluent areas, and very affordable. Older style building well maintained near the Brisbane River and ferry terminal access. Rooms look like they were refurbished a year or two ago and offer inexpensive clean accommodation. Came in to see a friend off at the Cruise Terminal nearby. Friendly staff offering enough... More

Booked in here by accident by a family member. What a horrible motel. The outside was shabby and the inside worse. Very basic and flimsy. Road noise bad and just across the road from a hotel carpark. Lots of noise late at night from that. The room we had was not even a proper motel unit and didn't have a... More

First impressions were that it looked a little run down but they kindly let me check in early (I'd just arrived from London), which improved my impressions instantly. The room was fine, tea and coffee provided and the two main things I judge a room by the shower and the bed could not be faulted. A short walk to racecouse... More

This is handy between Brisbane city and the international airport, but why else would you stay there? There are many other hotels in the area, costing the same or more, and this one is clean and comfortable. They coped very well with our very late check-in and late check-out.

Room was very basic and looks like it hasn't been renovated since the 70s. Not at all soundproof, could even hear the person next door clearing their throat! Didnt feel safe all night, curtains didnt even close properly. Went to check out in the morning, rang the buzzer twice and no one came. When someone did show up 20 mins... More

The motel is very basic and simple but in a perfect location if you are transiting to or from the Brisbane airport. I am a heavy sleeper and I found the location noisy in the night from the traffic along Kingsford Smith Drive, so I would not recommend it for light sleepers. Our room was a bit dated but everything... More
