“Well located for stopover”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

We stayed at the Airolodge for 2 nights in June 2011. Booking was made at the last minute whilst in transit after our airline had cancelled our flight and we were re-routed through Brisbane instead of Sydney.

Paid $180 a night for a larger room and had a clean spacious room with bed, table and chairs and heaps of room to lay out our bags and sort things out before our last flight of our journey. Microwave and fridge.

Greeting at reception was friendly and checkin nice and quick.

Within walking distance of the pier, movie theatre, 3 supermarkets and various restaurants.

Bonus transfer back to the airport was appreciated. It was with Red Baron and they arrived right on time early in the morning to get us to our flight on time.

Would stay here again, although I do think that the prices that this and other nearby hotels charge just because they are near the airport are way more than the service or facilities you actually get.

We stayed at airolodge for its convenience to restaurants and the city cat. It was our wedding anniversary so we wanted to be able to walk everwhere. The room was very clean and had a nice ambience. Staff were really nice and were very helpful in providing
information about the surrounding area. We would definitely recommend airolodge for all of the above and the breakfast was really good too.

The best part about the motel was the transport to the airport the following morning - it was a new vehicle with a courteous driver. The motel is located on a main road and is quite noisy. The queen bed was old and sunken in the middle, luckily there was a single bed in the room so my husband slept there. I will be passing through Brisbane again next month and will not be staying at the Airolodge.

Have stayed at the Airolodge on several occasions. The rooms are clean and tidy and service is excellant. Free car storage and shuttle to Airport make it very cheap.

We stayed in a "so called" family room, two adults and two children. The room was extremely small and there was no room to move. Linen was appalling a had a high odour and was smelly. Cutlery was unusable due to the fact that it wasn't clean. All staff members were unwilling to assist in any area. It was lucky that we only had to stay one night, we were going to stay two but one was enough for a lifetime.

I really regret booking this hotel and will never again. I would not recommend it to anyone and if you are thinking of going to this hotel i'd advise you to look for an alternative destination.

We stayed at this "hotel" overnight in Brisbane and chose it due to its close proximity to Brisbane Airport.

We have pretty basic requirements - a clean, comfortable room.

The hotel advertises that it has WIFI, however it doesn't say that it is at an additional cost. (Most other hotels provide this free of charge).

I went to dial reception to arrange a wake up call and found that not only did the phone not work, it wasn't even connected to the wall! No cables. Nothing. it was just sitting there like an ornament, so basically you couldn't dial anyone!

In saying that, the room was adequate, however the person working at reception was the real eye opener!

A young Maori woman. She was incredibly rude, unhelpful and had a "couldn't care less" attitude. Obviously she hates her job.

I enquired about the airport shuttle service (that they advertise on their web site) and it was like getting blood out of a stone.

The only thing I enjoyed about this hotel was leaving it.

Never again!!

We booked the hotel for a one-night stopover as we were arriving in to Brisbane on an evening flight and flying out again early the next morning. The hotel is only a 10 - 15 min taxi ride from the airport and is also one block from Racecourse Road where many eating options are available. (The CityCat ferry into town is also only a short walk away.)

The woman who greeted us at Reception was very friendly and helpful, and the staff were also quick to provide us with the baby cot we had requested. We opted for the family room with a large main living/bedroom (including kitchenette), with adjoining bedroom (2 single beds) that leads through to a small bathroom. It's not somewhere I would choose to stay for a long period, but as an option for us to sleep and have a shower between flights, it did the job perfectly.

You wouldn't say it's a bargain at $185, but it was clean and convenient to the airport, and I would consider it again as a stopover option.
