Over the last 18 months I have stayed at the Metropolitan Motor Inn 3 times mid-week on visits to Brisbane. It is located on a busy Corner, however my rooms have not been noisy. It is an easy walk to the CBD and the Central Railway Station. It is great value for money and with undercover parking available at $10.00...

Thank you for your lovely review and I will pass on your message to Maureen - it is great when guests acknowledge hard working staff. Others are quick to criticise so when the staff get mentioned they are over the moon.

On first looks you may think this motel is a run down disaster however once you have aired your room you will notice the spotlessly clean room! Our room had a new bathroom- basic shower but great use of space. The other hidden surprise is their restaurant- offering great specials and home style meals! It's close to specialist doctors. Will...

Thank you for your great review. Yes the building was built in the late 1950's but we have recently completed a massive renovation. The restaurant serves $10 lunches Monday to Friday and a 3 course dinner for $24 Monday to Sunday - best value in town.

Don't be put off by the older style architecture, this hotel has everything you need. Its obviously be refurbished recently. The bed was comfortable, air-conditioned, decent shower, & free wifi all for $89. The in-house restaurant was an unexpected bonus. 3 course set menu for $24, coconut prawns, salmon main and bread & butter pudding. Staff are helpful and polite...

Our room was great! No traffic noise. Comfortable bed. Bathroom was spacious and clean. Close enough to walk to the CBD and check out the city and Southbank. Short walk to the Central station. All in all a great place to stay! We will return!

1. Room smelt really badly.. so badly I was gagging when I first walked in. Also really noisy!! 2. The guest hotel guide that was inside my room said that room service dinner was between 5.30 and 8.30pm. I rung room service at 8.15pm and was informed the chef had gone home because he "needed to be finished BY 8.30pm".......

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay and I did apologize for the wake up call not being done. You requested 6.30am and that just happened to be change of shift. This is not an excuse but simple mistakes are made. On arrival guests are informed to order prior to 8:15pm as the restaurant closes at 8:30pm. As the...

NEGATIVES: Unfortunately the room that we had been given had an unpleasant smell so we asked for a change. It should have been easy enough for the receptionist to just...

Our stay was a rather long one and the Staff are so friendly, I haven't experienced such a welcoming atmosphere at a stay for a long time. They were also very helpful with check in and out times. The location was perfect , The rooms were very comfortable . The top deck was very nice to sit out on .

I stayed here for one night. It's a short walk from the city and is very affordable. I did read reviews on here about how it's noisy, so I was prepared for that. Even with ear plugs it was still pretty noisy, it's on a busy corner. I had breakfast in the restaurant, good value! The staff were very friendly...

We are on a busy corner in the middle of the city so noise can affect some people but glad you were prepared. As for the parking it is a little tricky as it is a very old building so parking wasn't a priority when it was built. But for free parking a little care is not much of a...
