Best Western Kennedy Drive Airport Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Excellent service and very very friendly owners. We missed our flight and had to extend our stay in Australia and was very frustrated. But we were very lucky to find this motel and enjoyed the extended stay. There is free transfer to and from the motel/airport by arrangement. Bus stop is just a short walking distance from the motel with buses to major locations around Tweed Heads, eg beach, shopping malls, city. The owners gave us useful information on restaurants and place to visit.

The whole site is clean. Room is spotless and has new furnishings. Beds are comfortable with extra pillows and blankets. Wifi is also available in the room. There is a clean pool but too bad we had too little time to spend and didn't use it. We were given a very good rate with very late check out in the evening before they send us to the airport. The owners even helped us prepared our dinner!

Thank you Karen and Steve. We will definitely make a trip to Tweed Heads and stay in Best Western Kennedy Drive if we visit Australia again.

From Max, Miko and Leon.

My wife and I stayed in this motel for one night. The rate of AU$104 included a hearty continental breakfast. We paid AU$11 for an upgrade to a twin bed room which was spacious and nicely furnished. It felt like staying in a typical English style house. The lady at the front desk was warm and very friendly. She gave us useful tips on where to go and eat and how to avoid the toll roads in Brisbane. She taught us how to register with www.govia.com.au in case we used the toll roads by accident. That gave us a real relief. Everything was very clean and tidy. The location was close to the beaches.

Very good option if you want to be near the Gold Coast airport. I think only 3 km away Room is clean and comes with nice additional amenities like toaster and cutlery. a nice touch. Wireless seems to be available in room but is not free. It seemed to be there is no free wifi anywhere else other than the gold coast airport.

We stayed here the night before we left for our overseas holiday and the night we returned as it is so close to the gold coast airport. The rooms are spacious with a queen bed, lounge, table and chairs, and a tv. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The hotel provide a free shuttle bus service to and from the airport which we used. The new owners of this hotel who were just taking over as we were staying are extreemly friendly and helpful. It was great to come home to Australia to such nice people that helped us with any queries we had. We will definatly use Best Western kennedy drive hotel everytime we fly out of the gold coast!

If you have an early flight or a late arrival this is a convenient resting spot.
Classic old style motel it does what is required but don't expect any frills.
Also if you arrive late there are few eating options on the area after 9pm.

Stayed one night on Xmas eve before flight next day from gold coast airport. Good price and no minimum stay . Grateful for that as gold coast airport motel has huge price and min number of nights . So useless for airport purposes at that time of year.
Kennedy drive motel is opposite good fish and chips shop , rooms are clean and they offer car minding service . They also do a shuttle run to the airport - even on Xmas day.
Recommend !

We were most impressed with this Motel. It was very spacious and comfortable and extremely clean. Undercover car parks. We got a lift for free to the airport that was a bonus. Also they can take care of your car while you are away if need be. Short stroll to restraunts. Nice quiet rooms. 10/10 for this place. Would most definatelly stay again.

Room Tip: they have upstairs rooms as well as ground floor so if you don't like steps mention this on book...
