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... More

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.

I was arriving late at night for just an overnight stay. Ordinarily I would stay on the CBD but I wanted to be closer to Eagle Farm. The motel staff rang me the day before, explained how to get the key and the room was comfortable, quiet and convenient. Check out was simple and very friendly.

Nice, clean and convenient. Friendly staff. Beds were comfy. Nice hot shower. Ideal for night before cruising. Shared a family room with 4 other ladies. Ok for one night but a bit cramped if stayed any longer.

Have stayed at this motel a number of times as it is close to the clients I visit. The front facing rooms (to the road) can be noisy but I prefer this motel as it is close to the cruise terminal with a number of restaurants and to Racecourse Road with restaurants and supermarkets. The ferry cat is close by... More
