Adequate location, clean rooms. Free parking was the main reason for choosing this location. The motel is minutes' bus ride from the centre.

We were not sure what to expect when we booked our accommodation as it was budget priced in an upmarket area, overlooking Brisbane River. However we were pleasantly surprised. Apart from the great views across the road, we had free wifi which the girls used all night, large tv, comfy beds, immaculately clean rooms and brekky in the morning. If you are happy booking a basic motel with shared facilities this is a great priced motel. We had tea/coffee in our rooms plus a small basin in the corner. Bus stop outside the door or they will call a taxi for you. If there was one negative, it would be the traffic outside, especially if not used to staying on busy road, however only minor impact on our stay. The managers were so helpful and accommodating. We definately appreciated the personalised service.

My 78 y.o mother from Japan visited me in Rockhampton. Due to an early international flight, mum had to leave Rocky a night before and stay in Brisbane overnight. I was worried as she is elderly, she does not speak English and she had to be up around 4am to catch the flight. I was recommended to contact the Kingsford Riverside Inn as the owners take a personal interest in helping people staying with them. And it was so true!! I explained to Olinda the situation and she was extremely helpful. She called me to inform mum’s safe arrival from the Brisbane airport, helped her to settle in the room and woke her up at 4:30am. Both I and mum are very grateful for her kind assistance. Mum said that it is not far from the airport and the room was very clean too!
Thank you so much Olinda. People like my mother are able to travel overseas because there are kind people such as you!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Though the building seems like a through back to the glory days of the Soviet Union, so is the security!
Cameras at every entrance, complete car park coverage etc monitored 24 hours a day. The owner patrols at night and is great for conversation if you can't sleep. If you have ever had anything stolen at a motel before then this is the place to stay, once you walk in you can relax and know your stuff is safe and the staff are on call 24/7 for anything you may need.

Room Tip: Rooms in the middle have private balconies

At the end of our vacation around Australia we had tired of spendy hotels with poor prepay internet, small rooms, and spendy breakfasts. We happened upon a hotel that is in a upscale area, but is budget priced. The River Cat transportation to downtown Brisbane or lush parks was nearby or take a city bus that arrives at the front door. In the neighborhood is horse and dog racing and the historic Breakfast Creek Hotel is within walking distance for steak dinners. Flat sreen TV's, FREE internet with great reception, private balconies are enjoyable. The owners were more than helpful and caring. Breakfast was adequate--neither small nor large. We were sorry we were staying for only 2 nights!!! The rooms are clean and the view was stunning. Sharing restroom and shower facilities allows the price to remain budget priced and was no problem.

There was an initial problem with my booking, but management made a sincere effort to fix it and ensure that I was happy which impressed me. Hotel is clean, comfortable, in a great location and good value for money. I'd be happy to stay again in the future.

Room Tip: River balcony rooms are nice

We usually stay in motels / hotels but as accomodation in Brisbane is so expensive we decided to stay at the Kingsford Riverside Inn, It was great value - and free breakfast was a bonus! Our room had everything that we needed including Tv fridge and coffee making facilities.The shared facilities were clean and tidy as was our room.The historical Breakfast Creek Hotel is just around the corner. Bretts wharf is a short bus ride or 20 minute walk.(For ferries into Brisbane.)Great view of the river from the breakfast room!The proprieters were very welcoming and informative.
