Was one of the cheapest place close to cbd with free parking but is not value for money. Room was clearly only dusted and not cleaned. The clauset had a deeply moldy smell and the bathroom was full of ants. There was still a dirty towel from previous guest. Sheets on bed were clean but furniture and fitting looked old... More

Day one I was greeted by several large cockroaches. The furnishings were stained, there was mould in several places, the floor was sticky under foot and even though the proprietor was friendly, we could not stay another night due to the noise and filth.

Helpful Managers, Clean Place, Quiet location, Close to bus and City. Not too close to a variety of restaurants but delivery options are available. Just avoid Gourmet deliveries. Go with a local delivery option. Good value.

I was done here for my UMAT exam which happened to be at the University. It was really close, enough so that I could walk and cheap. The owner was really nice, helped us check in late and let us leave the car there until the end of my exam at no extra charge. There was a microwave which made... More

I would like to thank Judy, the owner for her hospitality and kindness during our overnight stay. She looked after me and my daughter in law who was very ill and helped us any way she could. The room was very clean and comfortable. beds were great.

I came with a friend and we enquired for a twin share room and I was expecting a queen size bed and a smaller one, but they gave us 2 queen size bed with self contained stuff! Wow! Too much for as little as we wanted! Best place, though.

An inexpensive establishment in a city where accommodation can get pricey. It is on busy Gladstone Road but is on the high side of the street and set back, so noise is not an issue. It is an older motel: rooms are spacious and very clean. The managers are quite chatty and very helpful There is a stop for buses... More

Our room was very clean and fresh, car parked off main road right at our door, a big big plus in Brisbane. Owners friendly and very generous with facilities, milk etc. We walked through leafy suburb to Brewhouse, then next morning to Southbank, good exercise.

The area is kinda depressing as there is nothing in the neighbourhood. Just some old houses and residential area. Basic room with car park outside our room. It had a mouldy smell when we opened the door into the room. Basic room with a toilet and shower facilities, microwave and small fridge. Though the website said free wi-fi, we were... More
