“Good Base for Exploring Redcliffe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We stayed at the Gordon Motor Inn because of its position and good reviews on Trip Advisor. I think that most of the rooms are standard motel style, but we chose one with a kitchenette, as we prefer to prepare our own snacks. Service was excellent and friendly. Stephanie let us have our room straight away, even though we had arrived an hour early. The room was large and quiet, with a double and single bed, a desk, TV and kitchenette with microwave, sink, fridge and lots of storage space and utensils. The room has fairly dark furnishings, but everything is good quality and spotlessly clean. Parking is under cover, but extra care needs to be taken when reversing, as there are several concrete pillars. The motel is within walking distance (10 to 15mins) of a shopping centre, the Redcliffe Museum and the town centre.

We stayed at the Gordon for a friends wedding, our room was small but very nice, freshly painted and fresh. All the furniture was in good condition and the bed was comfortable. The shower was small but clean. Car parking was undercover but not secure, we drive a land cruiser and the fit was very tight. We heard no road noise at all. Breakfast was on time, hot and yummy. Our hosts were very nice people and very helpful. We would definitely stay again.

An excellent motel with clean fresh colours - not the largest rooms but Room 5 had a good bed - nice Samsung flat panel TV "tuned" for all stations. The room is perhaps over furnished but a great work desk which suits me and a fridge complete with milk and cool water (nice touch)... and an Ironing board so my Monday shirt will be perfect!!! Extra pillows, fluffy towels as well...

Most of the rooms are on the second floor and to me the stairs are perhaps a bit steep - Ok I am no longer young and I do wear bifocals, but the angle of the stairway seemed irregular to standard designs..

Service from management was nothing short of exemplary. Internet is essential for me and not all motels have perfect web access.
Management produced a extra WiFi modem for my room, the speed was excellent and free.

Caltex across the road for fuel and munchies - Anzac Avenue, plenty of food options and the Sunday Market on Redcliffe waterfront was pretty good.. A huge market with food, t shirts, trinkets - stuff... and lots of reasonable restaurants.
I am not a tourist - so can be a bit apathetic about places I visit - but I found Redcliffe quite a nice laid back place. A part of Australia for ordinary people with none of the pretentious "up itself" attitude and prices found in some places.

The only reason I stopped here was because my middle name in Gordon... so it had to be the "Gordon" Motor Inn... but I am very pleased I did.... A nice motel, honest price and if back here again, I would stay again.

We spent 2 nights at the Gordon Motor Inn and could not fault it at all. Although it is on a main road the sound proofing is excellent, didn’t hear any noise at all. Undercover parking and free wi-fi is a bonus. The room was very clean throughout, the bed comfy, the shower great and brekky at a very reasonable price was served hot and on time. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance and many more just a short drive away. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Redcliffe. Thanks Stephanie and Geoff for an enjoyable break, hope you enjoyed Morgans Restaurant as much as we did.

We didn't know Redcliffe at all. Many places we enquired with were, in our opinion, over-priced. We chose The Gordon as it seemed homely on the website and in good proximity to everything and particularly public transport which meant a lot to us as we were not driving ourselves. This is located right on the express bus route from Brisbane. The room we were allocated was sparkling clean, and extremely comfortable with all the necessary appointments we needed. The very new Owner/Operators Stephanie and Geoff were the friendliest ever and really made us feel welcome. They deserve this to be a very successful business. We would not hesitate staying there again or recommending it to fellow travellers.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

A decent inn located near the hospital and on a major avenue in Redcliffe. We had an overnight trip and this was an ideal place to stay. Staff were friendly, and despite being located on a busy thoroughfare, the sound proofing was very good.

The only negative was the rather small shower that was a little restrictive for an average sized person. That said, the unit was very clean and beds comfortable.

Ideal for a one or two night stay.

we stayed at the Gordon Motor Inn on the 18th of Febuary this year and found the owners to be very kind and friendly. They had only been there for 3 weeks but could tell us which places were good to eat at. Our motel room was very neat, clean and tidy. I thought that we might have heard some road noise but we couldn't hear it from our room. My husband and I both ordered a cook breakfast and it was one of the best that I have ever eaten, the bacon and scrambled eggs were cooked (not warmed like other places). We will be staying here again.
