Location was great and we found the staff very helpful, even personally dropping us off at the Leagues club when the courtesy bus hadn't turned up. The free drop off at the airport was also great. Would highly recommend.

Staying here was like home away from home. It's like staying at a home of a close friend. I've never met a host as hospitable and kind as Karen. She really went the extra mile in all that she does. She gave great directions, suggestions, bus routes and recommendations. She offered to give me lifts into the town area. I... More

Best Western Kennedy Drive motel is an extremely clean and pleasant property and the Manageress Karen is a very friendly and helpful person who went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. The only negatives of the property are that it is a bit out of the main areas of Tweed Heads/Coolangatta and near the flight path.

I booked here for just the one night but extended my stay I was so impressed. Karen greeted me on arrival and was friendly, efficient and just a lovely person to speak with. Fresh milk was provided, directions to restaurants and shops, maps of the area. I had cause to revisit Karen at reception during my stay for more information... More

This was our first stay at this hotel, but we will certainly return when we need to fly out from Gold Coast airport next time.. Staff were very welcoming on arrival and even gave us suggestions on good places to eat that night and directions. The room was a good size, very clean and comfortable and had a supply of... More

I wanted a place for 6 people to spend a night. It is so hard to find places that will accommodate people for just one night. Best Western catered for all of our needs and then some. When we arrived, we were greeted by Karen who is the lovliest person i have met in a very long time. So friendly... More

We stayed here for one night in April 2014 before going overseas. Karen and Steve were welcoming and friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We had a twin room that was very clean, comfortable and spacious that accommodate 5 of us very well. You get fresh milk on arrival for coffee which was great. We left our car here... More

Fantastic welcome, with a clean comfortable room, which was what was required after a long day on the road. Only downfall was having to travel to find something reasonable for dinner. You wouldn't know that you were close to an airport, noise wasn't an issue unlike many motels on the highway.

Had a one night stay here in May 14 and was pleasantly surprised. Clean & comfortable with a nice strong shower. Lady on reception was incredibly helpful. Loved the mini real milk supplied for coffee - big tick!! :-)

We arrived after a long day, check In was so simple which was wonderful, the staff were so friendly. Our room was lovely, clean, had everything we needed. We were happy it had a microwave, toaster, kettle and tea/coffee plus cutlery. Something I liked about this place was the location.. it is close to the main part of Tweed Heads.... More
