Very friendly and helpful staff at reception. Room clean and comfortable though the bathroom was very small. Located close to the city and only a short walk to the river and the GABBA. Would recommend to family and friends and I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Brisbane.

We stayed over night after a day in their conference room. The conference facilities were fine, with (simple) morning and afternoon tea provided, as well as coffee and tea all day. The room was spacious and modern, with quality linen and a comfortable bed. The television was good quality, though only offered free-to-air. The staff were very attentive and often...

when we arrived, the receptionist was very nice and very helpful. when we got inside of our room, it was pretty nice and clean too, but there is only 1 bathroom only. they provided us with guest kitchen so we can cook on 1st floor. Good location with affordable price.

What we liked: The Econo Lodge has a good location, just across the river from the CBD, and is less expensive the most similar hotels. You can walk down to the river and take the City Hopper ferry to the CBD. There is a good variety of restaurants in the area. What we didn't like: They don't have free WiFi,...

Room had 2 singles and a double bed - more than enough room for us ( didn't use the 2nd single bed as we brought our own portacot for the baby). Very clean and tidy place which is what you want after a big day out! Everything is placed a bit low though - glasses, kettle etc for toddler hands...

Stayed at this hotel when stranded in Brisbane - a very basic hotel, however great service and clean. probably more accustomed to a footy trip, then a business trip or romantic weekend away. Very close to the pineapple pub which put on a great fee and cold beers.

Spent three nights at Econo Lodge. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom small but serviceable ,and the staff very friendly. Wifi was easy to connect. Some people might find the location a bit noisy, being right on a busy road, but I am a heavy sleeper so found it no issue. I would stay again.
