Don't know whether the pure stench of pine o clean, zero reception on the tv or the fact I found bed bugs was the best part out of my stay at this "resort". Only lasted 2 nights and I was out of there.

As a disabled person we arrived to find both parks taken by non-permit holders. Them embarked on a journey of epic proportions up 3 flights of stairs with lock on every door, ironically making this place safe.Beds left over from medieval torture chamber made for a VERY rough night. Not helped by intermittent TV reception. On a positive not great... More

Got to this place yesterday for work. Guy on desk was not friendly in the slightest. The room was terrible: air con hardly worked, tv terrible, bed on a slant, bathroom and balcony dirty. It felt like a terrible backpackers. Unsavoury characters were already on their balconies at 5pm drunk and partying. I felt really unsafe. I travelled Oz last... More

Not the greatest accomodation around but it was easily the cheapest in the area so I had low expectations to begin with, stayed here for 3 nights but after one night had to move rooms as our room had an overwhelming rotten carpet smell that made it very uncomfortable to be in. Kudos to the manager for quickly moving us... More

There are many places in Brisbane that are cheap and clean. Please do yourself a favor and never stay here. I write alot of reviews having stayed at many hotels and this is the first time I have given a bad one. Whether it be the poor service, the smells, the bed bugs in the sheets I stress do not... More

Booked here with a bit of apprehension due to some of the reviews.. There was very little accommodation available at the time (due to the 1st Cricket Test at the Gabba). However, we were very happy with our stay. Room was comfortable, staff very friendly and obliging. Paid the $150 security deposit in cash which was refunded when we left.... More

Everyone agrees it is not a resort, but it's not too bad either. It is very good value for the location, just walk across the river to the city (only 1.5k to Myer), 3 minutes to supermarket, lots of great restaurants in easy walking distance. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms were adequate with a balcony that... More

The Staff are fantastic and very friendly, the place is smack bank in West End the Public transport options are endless with the 10minute Blue Glider Bus service... More

Well, this certainly is NOT a resort, BUT it's more than adequate for a bunch of reasons. Firstly, I found the staff to be super friendly. Every single person I crossed paths with or spoke to was really lovely and friendly. I was also pretty impressed when I had to leave a night early due to a family emergency that... More

Helpful staff, reasonable value but needs an upgrade. This is a 70's style motel and reasonably priced so I guess you get what you pay for. The location is central to shops and easy transport links to the city. Free parking available
