My husband and I had one night either side of our overseas holiday at the Airport Motel. The owners and staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. I did have a couple of queries I needed answered before we arrived and my emails were answered fully and quickly by Toni in a friendly, professional manner. The rooms and... More

The room was noisy because of its proximity to the main highway. However, the staff were very helpful and the motel is very close to some great restaurants for evening dining and early breakfast before catching the plane. A very affordable overnight option which we will repeat again but in a room away from the road next time.

Great location - very convenient to airport and Citycat Ferry terminal. Very basic room and we were at front location so bit noisy. Clean and tidy. Good free carparking underneath. Very competitive on tarrif. It is what it is - basic and affordable. Polite staff.

Stayed overnight in a first floor suite. Room was comfortable and well appointed. We initially stayed one night but owing to flight disruptions in Darwin were unable to continue our journey. A phone call to the motel reinstated our booking even though we had already checked out and we were back in our room straight away without penalty. In house... More

We stayed at this motel prior to our trip to Europe and on return.The motel is not too far from the airport and the staff and motel were excellent. We would recommend this motel for a short term stay. It is close to the Rivercat stop where a trip to the city is easy.

My family and I were very happy with location, price and the service from the check-in staff. We also had a good sized family room which easily fitted two double beds and still had plenty of room to spare. We found the room (on the second floor) to be nice and quite and allowed for a good night's sleep, especially... More

We only had 2 days in Brisbane. The Airport Motel worked but is nothing special for the price. It was around 15-20 minutes by taxi from the airport. Then a 20 minute walk to the Cat Ferry. The room was very small for 3 of us. An optional breakfast was pricey. The staff was very nice.
