“A truly great find :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

A short distance from the city was just what we wanted, this was perfect.
Comfy, spacious and quiet, what more could we ask for.
Onsite parking easy and plentiful, as well as being secure overnight.
The pool and outside seating area was a pleasant surprize, which we used on 2 afternoons.
The staff could not do enough for us and are a tribute to the hotel, being its greatest asset.
Would recommend :-)

Read someone else's review about staff being "overly friendly and helpful" and laughed because I didn't think that type of customer service still existed. Well it does exist still at this hotel.

Had a room by the pool which was nice and clean. Room looked like it had recently been redone. New bathroom fixtures.

Close to South Bank and shopping recreation.

Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in this motel for a hospital appointment (Princess Alexandra) which is just up the road. The staff were overly friendly and helpful. The unit was large, clean and comfortable. Air conditioned, tea and coffee, good size TV with clean carpet and window drapes. The bathroom was small but serviceable.The grounds and pool were very well maintained. The breakfast menu look great but I was fasting so couldn't have breakfast. Across the road is a 24/7 IGA. Thai restaurant across the road from the Pineapple Hotel on the same side. Further up is a Chinese restaurant and KFC near by. The Gabba is very close and walking distance for the fit.
The unit is just 30mts from The Pineapple Hotel where we had lunch in the Steakhouse. Expensive but great food. Drinks are a little pricey but you are in a pub so you expect it.
We would stay in this motel style unit again. The rates were very good. It is on a major road (Main Street) but had a comfortable sleep.
Thank you Econo Lodge City Star for a comfortable night.

It's just great to be greeted at reception by friendly, courteous staff members and find your room to be clean & with all the necessary hotel supplements and up to your expectations. Parking on site at no extra charge and even a pool, plenty of eateries around and walking distance to the Gabba - Bris

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road

We stayed here one night before a flight because it was affordable. Also, We had a car so we needed a place with parking which is somewhat difficult to find in Brisbane. The location isn't very accessible without a car. Our room was huge, with three beds, but the bathroom was tiny. My main complaint was the strong, smoke smell in the supposedly non-smoking room. The smell was terrible and it did not go away when we tried to air it out. They need to enforce their non-smoking policy.

We recently stayed for several nights at the Econo Lodge as part of a sports team competing in Brisbane. The Lodge had everything we needed to make our trip comfortable and easy. Our room (27) had a double and single bed for myself and my 11 year old son. There were very large windows that let lots of natural light into the room- but also excellent black out curtains for a sleep in. Part of the windows could be opened to allow a nice breeze into the room. The beds were very new and comfortable. The linen fresh and crisp. Whilst the lodge has a somewhat tired exterior the important things were great- bright airy large room with clean comfy beds. The bathroom was an odd skinny shape but also was spotless.
Our team of 40 people- parents and children arrived staggered from mid morning to late afternoon- all of us were warmly and promptly welcomed with early check up smoothly facilitated with smiles and assistance. The outstanding service was maintained across our stay. When a team bbq for the teams' parents and kids was planned we asked if this was possible. Wow. Pool side seating for 40 and bbq facilities, use of the Lodge's refrigerator and kitchen was all too easy for the staff at Econolodge.
Our team was most appreciative. We had a super time. Thankyou to the staff at Econolodge

Needed affordable accommodation for just one night in Brisbane and booked this motel as it was close to the event we were attending. We were upgraded to an executive room which was very spacious and had a view of the park across the stree (room 28). The staff are excellent - very friendly and helpful, room was clean, bed comfy, and there is free carparking. The Pineapple Hotel is almost next door and we had a great cheap meal there as well (Wednesday is $10 steak night but they have three different restaurants to choose from). There are also serveral fast food outlets very close.
We were thrilled with our stay and will definietly book this hotel again as it's location makes it very easy to get to several major areas of the inner city.
