I’ve been at Brisbane three times and stayed at this motel every time.
This is a good place to go everywhere suburb or downtown of Brisbane, through M1 pr M3 which have interchanges nearby. To the downtown, it took only 15-20 minutes by car and 30 minutes by bus. Across padstow road, there are small shopping center with SPAR, ATM, Post office, Subway, Chinese small restaurant and Pizza house. The motel has also excellent Chinese restaurant.
The room has a washer and a dryer. We used three apartments for nine nights this time and one of washers was out of order. Free wireless internet service is convenient but become slow or unable to connect when rooms are busy.
Kitchen has everything to cook and enough for every breakfast. We bought egg, ham, juice, fruits, bread and butter at the shopping center by walk. Washing dishes of breakfast after we went to somewhere was good for us, time saving. Room cleaning is not sufficient and the floor is covered by small dust, because, in my suggestion, central vacuum is weak for cleaning. Bed making and bath room cleaning is good.
The front desk is operated from 7:00 to 23:00. The stuff is kind and friendly. But they don’t know restaurants nearby, so we must search Indian, Italian, sea food restaurants for ourselves. If you bring GPS system and guidebook, it is easy to go by car and takes 20 minutes from this motel. I wish the stuff should survey reviews of restaurants neighborhood from friends or guests.
