As a last minute choice we flew to Brisbane but had not foreseen that many (most) hotels and motels were booked out for Valentine's Day. After an extensive search we found a room at Koala Resort – just a short distance from our appointment next morning. From their website we could see that this was an older style motel in log cabin style. It was not the newest around, but it was a bed with a shower in large rooms (we were fortunate to be allocated a one bedroom suite) and in a quiet spot. Sure, it was a little tired, but at $140 per night we were happy.
Plenty of space, good bed, clean and hot shower (we were only there for 13 hours).
