Aspley Carsel Motor Inn
Ranked #77 of 138 Specialty Lodging in Brisbane
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We spent several days here. The pool and spacious well-equipped kitchen were a real plus. There is a laundry and breakfast is available if required. It was an ideal base to explore the Moreton Bay area and the Sunshine Coast. Owner Ross and his missus deserve credit for a well-run operation

Room Tip: Traffic noise from Gympie Road not a problem, but choose a room on the east side for preference

Great location not far from the Boondall Entertainment Centre as well as lots of restaurants and eateries. Hosts are friendly, welcoming and most helpful. Rooms are clean and very comfortable with free Wi-Fi being an added bonus. Have stayed here a few times now and will be back again. Highly recommend.

This place is just the ticket for a stay in Brisbane...actually being so very close to the excellent mega mall in Chermside, it almost makes going in to the city unnecessary. For location, it is great and easy to find. Beds, clean and comfy. Everything you need in a unit was there. Very friendly and helpful staff, even when they are flat out busy. We found this place by chance, but will definitely use it again!

Superficially, it's a nice place.

For a motel to greet me with a sign "if items are removed ... immediate police action" is off-putting. But for the motel owners to try and safe money by remove lightbulbs from the bedside lights so they can't get stolen is crass.

In addition, the rooms are small: if you sit up in bed, you look at the bonnet of your car 3 meters away through the verandah door. There are no windows, just one huge door, which makes you feel you're sitting in a gold-fish bowl, visible to all and sundry from the car park. For privacy, there are only black-out curtains - ie no natural light at all.

The walls are too thin, you can hear people laugh next door. Coffee cups are plastic, fridge is half-size, the water tap is the wrong size so you can't fill the kettle properly ... it's just irritating and unpleasant all around.

Dear Sir with regards to your first comment if you read the fine print of any Motel in the world it will state if any items are removed you will be charged or a report to police will be made trust you have a read next time. the cost of theft to Motels is extremely high .

Your second statement the rooms are small you were asked if you would like a deluxe room for $5.00 extra which has a verandah chairs and table outside you declined wanting the standard room, your comments about the light bulbs are completely untrue and if there were no lightbulbs in the bedside lights they must have been stolen we would have only been to happy to replace the Motel has 41 Rooms and we do NOT have timeto check every light fitting in each room every day, the coffee cups are normal standard GLASS MUGS , and about the kettle just lean it over 25 degrees and it will fill , but i'm pleased you enjoyed the FREE INTERNET , POOL and the other amenties we offered

Had a great stay at this motel .We arrived late but to our surprise we were very well received most other motels are grumpy when you arrive late at nights .Next morning we asked for directions from the front desk and they were very helpful. We found our way around Brisbane very easy with the help of the front desk staff who went out of his way to draw us some maps to the places we had to visit .Thank you Ross I think was his name . Very clean and supper friendly staff .Very reasonably priced .Will stay here again on our way back .Thank you
