I booked through Expedia. The confirmation email from Expedia stated that "Check-in time ends at 9:00 PM" and "The front desk is open during limited hours. Guests arriving after 9 PM must contact the property in advance using the information contained in the confirmation email received after booking."

We chose this hotel because it is close to the airport but what a find it is. The rooms are nice, very clean and comfy (king size beds) and the owners are extremely helpful. Although on a main road it was very quiet. The real find was some really great restaurants about a 3 minute walk away.

We were after a hotel close to the airport for an overnight stay. This motel was close, clean and very comfortable. The managers went out of their way to help us with our late check in after a wedding. The bed was extremely comfortable

Handy location and easily accessible by airport shuttle bus. Can be a little noisy as it's situated on a major road, but the double glazing does help. The room was a good size, but the sharp step to the bathroom caught me out several times result in a stubbed toe that I could have done without. My front desk service... More

The room was clean , staff friendly but we were kept awake by some kind of rodent scratching in the ceiling above the cupboard. We explained this to the manager who seemed quite puzzled. Let's hope he gets rid of whatever it was

Stayed here on our arrival in Brisbane. Near to the airport and within walking distant to shops and restaurants. Great hotel very comfortable and the hosts were brilliant. If needed to have a short time in Brisbane again would definitely stay here.

We have stayed at this motel several times over the past 4 years, mainly because it is so convenient to get to the airport and to long stay airport parking facilities. It is also close to restaurants at Portside/cruise connections and the Hamilton pub for meals. However, the motel is badly in need of a refurb. Carpets are very worn... More

Stayed 2 nights in March 2014. No problems booking in or leaving early to catch a flight in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was dated but clean. Having only one access to the free wifi per room was annoying as both myself and my wife carry our own iPad. A second log on was available at extra... More
