Karen, the owner of the Motel, delayed going out for her special sunday lunch to come and pick me up from the airport as soon as I rang, this had not been pre-arranged and did so out of her kindness. This was so very much appreciated as I was injured and to be able to go not only straight to... More

Our family of six stayed for a night and found it so clean and comfortable. With plenty of space for our four kids in one room, queen bed, table and chairs to fit us all and kitchenette to accommodate us in the other room. Big enough bathroom and just a nice feel to the place. Look forward to staying again.

Good location near airport but quite due to curfew at night. Very clean room with everything you need for the price. A little gem easy to get to. Friendly staff. Will definitely stay again. Close enough to Surfers paradise.

We had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at this wonderful motel. Karen went out of her way in all things, even to the point of driving us to the club so we didn't have to wait for the courtesy bus! The rooms were very clean, well appointed and very modern, more so than some of the resorts we have... More

Long drive up the Pacific Highway from Taree, to this little oasis. Whilst you are nearly on the Gold Coast, this motel suited our needs on our overnight stop going through to Noosa. Rooms are modern, well appointed, with great shower and very comfortable bed. Customer service was excellent, and extremely reasonably priced. Only a quick drive into Tweed Heads/Coolangatta...

We booked this hotel as a simple overnight stopover to catch a flight but wished we could have stayed here longer to enjoy the nice hotel and amazing service. We had booked a late check in and, although had been efficiently emailed details on how to get our key and access our room, the owner Sharon stayed up well over... More

Very clean, affordable, well maintained and supplied. Very friendly and helpful staff. It was worth every penny. Good location to visit Brisbane and beaches from. I would certainly go back, if I'm ever in the area.

Booked online at 10.30pm due to cancelled flight on a Sunday night. Phone call confirming booking while enroute. Greeted by hotel staff when we arrived at hotel 11.00pm - service with a smile. Made an otherwise disastrous evening of cancelled travel plans all the more bearable.

My wife and I spent four nights at the Best Western Kennedy Drive. The linen and towels were clean and fresh. The bed was comfortable. The TV and wi-fi worked perfectly and the air conditioner was whisper quiet. A discount is offered for three nights or more. Recommended.
