We stayed in a family room and were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation. The room was clean and well appointed. Our family was so impressed with the location and most of all the staff. It was so nice to be welcomed with a smile! The staff make you feel at home, are happy to assist in any way and we... More

Because of my work, I've had to transit several times in Brisbane for a one night stay over the past three months. Each time I've stayed in a different hotel in the same area (looking for deals). This has been the best so far. The location is perfect - close to the airport and a short walk to restaurants at... More

The room was very clean and even though it was on the road side it was very quiet due to the double glazing on the window. Had a deluxe room with a spa. Room 212. Was extremely disappointed on the size of the spa. Also the shower head. It only sprayed with needles or downpour. My partner who is 180cm... More

This nice Motel is located close to Brisbane airport and the shipping terminal on the Brisbane River. It is very conveniently located albeit on a busy and noisy road, especially if you leave the window open. The office staff are excellent and very helpful. We stayed two nights using it as a base to attend a wedding in Brisbane. The... More

We stayed for one night prior to an early flight and it was great. Clean and comfortable, not flash but had everything we needed, including free wifi for our teenagers, the most important thing! Really comfy beds and a quiet room, only 10 minute drive in the morning. Make sure to arrive before 9pm because I rang to say we... More

We chose this place for one night as it was close to the airport. The staff were courteous and helpful, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Loved the double shower! There is nothing overly flash about this place, but its functional and clean. At $185 for one night for a triple, the room was perhaps a little... More

Clean rooms and relatively quiet for busy Hamilton location, better to book a room not facing main road but most rooms soundproofed. Nice and tidy and for the price although a bit above others is relevent to saying "you get what you pay for". It is one of the best motels along the strip of Kingsford Smith Drive.

KSMHamilton, Manager at Kingsford Smith Motel, responded to this review

As the person who took the phone call, I must say that none of the comments mentioned in the review were ever made to the caller. The caller wanted to cancel his booking at 7pm on the day of arrival and was told of the cancellation policy; thereafter I was not given any further opportunity to speak to offer alternative...

Stayed one night in connection with a local event and choose this motel purely for its location - and so I wasn't expecting too much from a motel thats clearly aimed at airport travellers. I was pleasantly impressed from the efficient good service at reception when checking in (and checking out) through to the quality and cleanliness of the room... More

This is a perfect overnight stay, close to everything especially the airport. The rooms are great, and very well maintained. The owners are very friendly and very helpful. Great place to eat nearby is gallops, great meals and great beers.
