We stayed here twice on our recent holidays (on our way to and from our destination). We travelled with 2 adults and 2 children (aged 14 and 11).
It's a constant annoyance of ours that many hotels and motels don't offer family rooms and instead expect you to buy two rooms. This certainly was NOT the case here. We got one of their family rooms (a different room each time we stayed). The room was quite large with a queen and three singles (and a folded cot in the corner). Even with that layout of beds (plus the table and chairs and lounge), the room didn't feel cramped and there was still more than enough space to move about. We found the room (which was located to the back of the motel) to be comfortable and well kept, with a good stock of tea and coffee etc. The room was quiet and were not disturbed by street noise (and I am usually a light sleeper).
The motel is over three levels so the luggage lift certainly came in handy.
The other item I should mention is that the motel has an arrangement with a local business to provide a shuttle bus to and from the airport. At the time of writing the cost was $10 for up to 4 people, which is great value considering the cost of a taxi into town. Admittedly this is not in the CBD (but you can get to the CBD by public transport fairly easily from here) but it is a good alternative if you are overnighting in Brisbane and don't want to stay at the hotels right at the airport (we investigated one of the hotels at the airport and found that it didn't provide a family room and two rooms was way to expensive).
The motel is close to (ie 2 minutes walk) several restaurants, fast food places and a 7-Eleven and is about 10 mins walk to Toombul shopping centre.
The only problem I could note, and this is not the first motel to do this, was that the motel expected guests to was their used cups and saucers but didn't provide any dishwashing implements (eg brush, tea towel, dishwashing liquid), but that's a minor concern.
One more note, front office staff are friendly and helpful (much more so than when we stayed there several years ago).
