The reality is that this is a cost effective option close to the airport. The place is old with basic fittings but does it well. Good TV options and air conditioning. Excellent shower with good pressure

A great sleep over before catching your flight. The Motel is clean and the staff and lovely. There is a pool and it is a short walk to Hamilton for a selection of eateries and a stroll along the Brisbane River.

Stayed for one night waiting for flight next day. A shuttle service is offered to both domestic and international airports. A small clean motel room, comfy beds and I was surprised how quiet it was considering the busy road it is on.

We just recently stayed for one night before our Red Eye flight to Bali. Could not fault them in their customer service. Both ladies at reception were extremely lovely and helpful.

I was very impressed by the quick responses to all of my inquiries (and there were a lot). I landed at the international terminal after hours and they were great with explaining to me how to get into my room.
