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

A great location close to the airport. Off the main road so nice and quiet. Greg & Jan are so very welcoming and friendly. Within walking distance to great eating places & shops. 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

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
