I booked this motel for its proximity to the Entertainment Centre as I had three concerts to attend on consecutive nights and didn't want to have to commute in and out of the city.
The first thing I noticed was how clean the room was for a basic type of motel - probably the cleanest I have ever seen for a motel that isn't brand new. And even better, the front desk and cafe staff were friendly and helpful right from check-in and at every turn. They organised a dinner and shuttle service package for people to get to the venue for each show, avoiding any pre-show stress. Cyclone Oswald was causing some problems at the time with a postponed and then cancelled show, and power outages. The staff were right there, checking on their personal iPhones and iPads to keep me informed, without me even asking. They helped with transport info to the venue and around Brisbane.
Public transport in the area was very easy to use and I was able to go out and do what I wanted each day with minimal effort.
I was very happy with my stay and this will be my first choice for accommodation when I go back to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
