The motel is in a very convenient place close to the racecourse, restaurants, supermarkets etc and best of all is very quiet with no road noise. Management are really friendly and helpful. I have stayed here many times and find that Greg really looks after me.

This motel is one of the cleanest and friendly motels I have ever stayed in. The hosts Greg and Jan are a charming couple who go out of their way to accommodate your every needs. There is a sparkling pool with kids pool attached, a beautiful barbecue area and half size tennis court. It is a stroll down to Racecourse... More

We stayed just two nights. We didn't know Brisbane very well and didn't want to bother hiring a car, so wanted somewhere not far from the airport and well-located. The Raceways did not disappoint, having an easy walk to the local café bars and the river ferries. Our room was comfortable, spacious and had personality. The staff are extremely pleasant... More

This place is great. It has a wonderful environment and beautiful service. Beds are comfy, bathrooms well equipped, and food delicious. My favourite aspects have been the many pillows, the soap dispensers in the bathroom, the jam drop biscuits, and the $2 family movie rentals. I will definitely stay here again!

My husband and I recently stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding nearby, along with 3 other couples. From the time we checked in we were treated as welcome visitors with genuine warmth and offers of any assistance we might require. At no time were Jan and Greg intrusive but they were interested in our plans and keen... More

This motel is very handy to the Passenger Terminal and the Airport. Cost between $25 to $30 for the cab fare to the airport and about a 400 metre walk to the Passenger terminal. This motel is in a better location than most of the other motels at Hamilton as it is located in a quiet street and not on... More

First motel I've stayed in that has a large 50 inch tv... Staff are very hospitable and rooms are clean and well maintained... Seats and table outside every room... Perfect location, just a short stroll down the road from an amazing thai restaurant and shops... Highly recommend...

We stayed for a night at the Raceways Motel as we had an early flight out of Brisbane the next day. Check-in was a breeze, the beds very comfortable, and the air-conditioning a god-send. Jan also arranged for our transport early in the morning with no issues. The free wifi worked well too. Just a tip, the shuttle to the... More

Location; location; location!! Although close to very busy Kingsford-Smith Drive (which within minutes takes you to the airport; Fortitude Valley; Brisbane CBD; 'Portside' & both freeways to the Gold & Sunshine Coasts) the motel is located in a quiet safe street. Trendy Racecourse Rd. (for a wide range of restaurants; eateries; coffee shops; banks; post office; Coles & Woollies) is... More
