“Average at Best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Title says it all.........NOT 4 STAR. Average room. Average service. Overpriced. Loud traffic noise. Does not have FOXTEL in rooms as advertised. No mirror or sink in bathroom. Breakfast was a bowl with a box of cornflakes in it and a carton of milk delivered to my room the night before. NOT 4 STAR...........

Thankyou for writing a review. We appreciate reviews good or bad as we are always seeking ways to improve ourselves. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. The business has very recently changed ownership and management and we obviously still have issues to address.

The Foxtel problem has now been address and all rooms have access to Foxtel

After a long driving from Sydney we decided to stay in Airolodge motel. Friends told us this place has changed ownership and the service was brilliant. We have never stayed in a clean and friendly motel in our lives. the staff in front counter was very helpful.It was raining next morning,we wanted to call a taxi to Cruise Ship Terminal, the lady said "we can take you to the terminal, save your taxi fare." we were appreciated for that, will definitely come back next time.

we stayed for early flight next morning,the Staff is very friendly and the room are so clean. Air-condition is very quit. The motel has some rooms towards a busy road, but with double glassing you hardly can hear the traffic. provided simple meal but only a 5 minutes walk to the Shops & Restaurant at the Wharf and racecourse road. a very short drive to the Airport through Nudgee road ,only took 7 minutes. We would stay there again next time.

Last month we stayed in this motel to be close to airport. The area is great so there are lots of local restaurants and shops within walking distance. Easy walk to pub and ferry. The ferry can drop you off near Brisbane CBD. it is clean and our bed was comfortable.A taxi from this motel to the Brisbane international airport is approx $25. will stay again.

I wish I'd read previous reviews before booking a room here. The room was dreary and depressing and the road noise was unbelievable. The advertisement mentions "sound proofing". It was non-existent. A tariff of $180 is robbery. Please stay somewhere else.

We booked here only because other places of choice were booked out. No wonder this one still had vacancies

We arrived just after 9 pm as the receptionist was locking up. Rather than let us in she went back to her desk and after some minutes I found the intercom and once she knew who we were - and she was expecting us- we were let in.

Room was large and clean which is important. However , there was not even a hand soap available to wash your hands.
Room service and breakfast orders finished at 9pm and there was no mini bar or bottled water available in the room. Even a drink and snack machine would have been handy. Lucky we had eaten on the plane and I had a few snacks to see us through the night.

Usually 4 stars assures a certain standard but this time we were let down. Like all establishments near Brisbane airport this was overpriced, but also gave you little service for the money paid. Even little 3 star country motels can manage some soap!

We do not have mini bars in the rooms but drinks and snacks are available from Reception till 10pm. There is a jug of fresh tap water in the fridge.
Breakfast is available to all guests whenever they arrive. After 9pm we ask guests (in information folder) to slide their menu under Reception door.
Room service does finish at 8.30pm but we are only a few minutes walk from Restaurants and coffee shops where snacks are available till midnight.
I do apologise for no soap at the hand basin but the Managers are on site 24 hours to cater for these problems

Poor value for money here. A mattress that reminded me of a 1970's motel, foam with big slope towards the centre making for very uncomfortable sleep. Shower head at chest level. Basic facilities. Tiled floor sticky under foot. Won't be staying here again.

Room Tip: There is a newer section which, from memory had better rooms than the old section.

Our new rooms at the back are very modern and popular with guests. The front section is constantly having things upgraded and now most of the shower head have been fixed. You can request a room at the back if you want a nice quiet, modern room.
