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.

A pleasant smile and good service are a great start on arrival at an accommodation place. This was the case at Airport Motel, Brisbane. Over and above the courteous and pleasant greeting, I was impressed with reception apologising to me for a slight delay while attending the needs of an elderly couple before me. That was fine. I'm well in... More

We booked a queen deluxe room. Unfortunately I could not see any deluxe fittings or features. I may be wrong about this, but I think the only difference between standard and deluxe is that there is lift access to the deluxe rooms. The room could have been cleaner. I reached up into the cupboard for a plate and found there... More

Clean, tidy, safe.......good airport location. We ended up here at a last minute because of a plane cancellation. It rated 4 stars on booking.com and so went with it without reading a single review. My view is that this is a 3 star with an extra half because the receptionist/owner was so very lovely, helpful and friendly. Good family sized... More

Close to the airport for an early flight, friendly helpful reception, adequate room, free wifi, nice restaurants within walking distance all in all a very pleasant experience and would stay again. Just down the road from cut price car rentals where we dropped our hire car off at 5am who were also prompt so a very smooth transition to airport
