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

We chose this motel due to its location and was close to where we needed to be for the weekend. Booked over the phone a couple of months prior. Was easy & quick to get to from nearby Brisbane airport. Noticed that the area was on one of the flight paths for the landing of smaller planes, but once inside... More

The rooms are well set out and equipped with microwave & everything a traveller requires. Even though this is an older motel, it is very clean,comfortable &... More

We found Raceways a good choice, it's a well maintained, older style motel. The location is the best thing, it’s 5 mins walk to Racecourse Rd for good cafes and shops. 15 min walk the other way is the Eat Streets Market and wharf area with loads of eating options. Only 10 mins drive from the airport and even though... More

We stay at this motel sometimes twice a year. We found it originally because we wanted a motel near to the airport and we were never going to stay at the Formula 1 which is the closest to the airport. I found the Raceways on the net and it wasn't too far from the airport. Clean and tidy and run... More
