I stayed in a spacious double room, with small kitchen facility, shower room (no bath) and double bed. It had air conditioning and laundry facilities. The condition of the room felt dated but had all the features I needed and was located a reasonable taxi drive from the airport and 10-15min walking distance to shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly... More

We stayed at this motel as we were connecting with a cruise the following day. The rim was basic, not expensive, but noisy with traffic passing on Kingsford Smith Drive. There was a shuttle to the Cruise Terminal however, which was great.

We stayed overnight in a family room with kitchenette. Room was clean and despite being a little small, it was definitely versatile and suited our needs for an overnight stay between flights. The excellent customer service, early breakfast, airport shuttle service and luggage keep was very handy. We will definitely be staying again.

Like most other reviewers have said, this motel Ticks all the boxes. There is nothing I can really add except I love the fact they offer an airport transfer service. We were travelling overseas and had to be at the international terminal very early in the morning. It was no trouble for the staff who were most generous and helped... More

I stayed here 2 nights this week. The room was clean and comfortable but there was a lot of traffic noise. The bathroom windows have permanent vents which mean you can't block out the traffic noise. The hotel is in two buildings and only one has a lift so if this is important to you, you need to make sure... More

Very well run motel only 10 minutes from the airport. The rooms are very clean and tidy, comfortable beds, staff friendly and attentive, breakfast is good value fresh & tasty, only 5 minutes from Racecourse Rd cafes and restaurants (try Northern That) it's fantastic. The only thing that stops this place from getting 5 stars is the bathroom is very... More

Location tick, Rest quality tick, Room Facilities tick, Room cost tick, only downfall was the check-in procedure. I'm sure not the staffs fault, only working to instructions needing photo ID, credit card for room deposit even after credit card quoted on booking. Also after a long days work, dinner and breakfast was ordered. For basic meals, that only needed heating... More

An excellent overnight stay en-route during air travel. Very convenient to the cruise terminal for a good range of food and dining options and a ferry terminal. The hotel shuttle in the way to go, better value than a taxi.

I booked a "standard" room near the Brisbane Airport through a popular travel web site. The Airport Motel was conveniently located about 10 min. from the International Terminal. Check out Con-x-ion or a taxi for transfers to the motel. Motel offers airport drop-off every 40mins from 5.45am to 9.35am. It costs $15.00 for 1-2 , $20.00 for 3-4. Booking can... More
