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

I was looking for a place near the airport for our last night as we had an early flight out the next day. This place was recommended to me by a friend saying that friends of his always stayed here when they came to Brisbane. Jan and Greg were both very welcoming. The room (we were in room 2) was... More

An older-style motel on Brisbane's northside that is very convenient to Brisbane airport, though did not notice any aircraft noise at all. It is located on a quiet backstreet so traffic noise is not an issue, either. Rooms are large, well equipped and individually decorated. They might look a bit old-fashioned but this also makes them more interesting that your... More

Upon checking in, Greg, the host, greeted us by the hand, welcomed my mum and I and introduced himself - I don't think that has ever happened to me! Great hospitality! We used to always stay in a new motel in Kingsford Smith Drive, but now this is our new favourite. Well priced, well located within 700m from Brett's Wharf... More

If anything, the Raceways is getting better. I stayed here constantly during 2012 and 2013 and the rooms are progressively getting modernised, particularly in the bathrooms which were the most dated part of each room. Rates haven't changed and importantly there's no price gouging during big events or peak times. The tariff is the tariff. Greg and Jan are wonderful... More

A friendly greeting, a comfortable bed, clean and well fitted bathroom, quieter than most, good value. The rooms are not huge but for one or two people it's ideal, especially for anyone with own transport going in and out of BNE. The range of restaurants nearby is great and there are also banks and small Coles and Woolworths supermarkets. The... More

For a quiet and comfortable stay in a most convenient location you just can't go past this one. Greg and Jan will always go out of their way to provide for your needs. The rooms are well equipped clean tidy and most comfortable and away from noisy traffic. Also close enough to the ferry terminal and numerous local shops and... More

We chose this hotel due to its price and being so close to the airport. All we needed was a place to shower and change before going onto the airport. Swimming pool was appreciated also. The manager was also very nice.

Spent our last night in Australia at Raceways. Great host. Room clean, everything in working order. Bedding and bathroom good. Swimming pool looked good but I didn't test drive. Parked at the door. Free WiFi. Good value. Groceries and restaurants a few blocks away. 5 Mins from BNE and international cruise port. Very handy. Definitely suited us well.

Stayed here because of close proximity to the airport and the good reviews on here. Room was well equipped, but very dated and had a funny smell. Can't quite decide whether it was incense or pipe smoke.. because of this we didn't hang around to relax and headed straight out into the city which is a shame because after a... More
