Having lived in the area for fifteen years, I have recommended Raceways Motel to several of my interstate visitors. Last weekend I had the chance to stay there myself. This property is good honest motel style accommodation with many extra touches to make for an enjoyable stay. The rooms are spotlessly clean with a quiet location and comfortable beds making...

Greeted with a friendly reception, especially from Oscar (the dog). The room was ready for us early which we really appreciated. My mother and I were staying for one night before we flew out and it had everything we needed; tv, comfy beds, fridge, microwave, close to a multitude of restaurants/takeaways up the road and about 10 mins from the...

Located away from the main road but just a couple of minutes to the restaurant hub of Racecourse Road. Good size room, comfortable bed and everything you need. Only 10 minutes to Brisbane airport, local transport close by.

This motel is in a good position at a great price. While it is not a flash place it is clean, comfortable and very quiet. This is a family run business and they are very helpful, they offer breakfast at a bargain price. A short stroll to a variety of eating options and a supermarket. The Brett Wharf is an... More

We needed an overnight stay at both ends of our trip, handy to the airport. As we were traveling with kids it was great to be able to unload right outside our room, with easy parking. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Basic amenities - all you need for a short stay in the city. Nice and quiet (we're from... More

Handy central location to airport and city. Well run, nicely maintained and friendly staff. The rooms are quiet and no noise intrudes. It also had a good feel of security as it was a small family style motel not a large number of rooms and we were able to have two rooms next door to each other so that we... More

It certainly is a ripper spot to stay. Ten minutes from the airport. Close to some very nice eateries,walking distance. Quiet part of town. Nice pool and spa. Rooms clean, tidy and comfortable. And the proprietors, Greg and Jan, are most accommodating. My wife and I will continue to use this motel.

So convenient to the airport. Very friendly and obliging staff. Everything you want in the rooms and parking outside your door. Quiet area off main traffic routes. We always stay here when taking an early flight the next day. The owners are very accommodating re late arrivals and early check-outs. All for a moderate tariff and a discount if you... More

We have stayed here twice now. The location was the reason we stayed the first time. After staying in other motels/hotels near the airport for an early morning departure, the lack of sleep due to traffic noise was just too much. It is also a great place to base yourself for a few days to explore Brisbane. Raceways is in... More

We stayed at the Raceways on Monday night, enjoying its quiet atmosphere and as always Greg was the perfect host. As we were attending a concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre the Raceways's location meant a short drive and we always use the Raceways when travelling overseas again due to it's close proximity to the airport. We enjoyed the short... More
