Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Chermside Motor Inn receives commendation for its cleanliness and prime location near shopping and transport options, though the buzz of traffic may occasionally be a downside. Guests have praised the hospitable service and the spotless condition of the rooms and pool area. While the inn's charming atmosphere is recognized, some visitors suggest that the decor is somewhat dated and express a need for additional amenities such as better internet access and kitchenware. Despite mixed views on value due to extra charges, many find the accommodations to be comfortable and fairly priced.

The Chermside Motor Inn is a comfortable, easily accessed accommodation house close to the Chermside Shopping Centre and public transport. It is clean and tidy with everything you need for an overnight or longer stay. The small bottle of fresh milk is always appreciated.

Decided to stay here in to attend a student placement 1.1km walk away from where I needed to be. I stayed in Rm 3 which was clean, had towels, linens, and queen bed with nice firm mattress. Bus stops VERY close by to get back & forth from Westfield Chermside (less than 1 zone), but with an Aldi and several food places next door, those on a budget can really make the most of this place. Manager was a young fellow who was very approachable and fixed any issues I brought to attention immediately. Upgrades are being rolled out for the rooms, so things like Wi-Fi and PayTV may not work well but if you need a comfortable place to rest your head, give this place a shot.

Ideally situated in Chermside on the Northside of Brisbane near major shopping centres & a 15 minute drive to the Brisbane airport. There are plenty of restaurants, shops & cafes within a short distance along with multiple dining options from meal delivery apps. Despite being located on a main road, the noise was minimal. The room was clean & organised. The staff were very friendly, professional & accommodating. The negatives were that the hotel WiFi password was not supplied at check-in, there were no phones in the room connected to reception & the room had a faint rotten egg odour upon entry. Originally booked for a family of four, only 3 bath towels were supplied. I didn’t realise the hotel was only a 3-star when I booked, but it suited our purposes for an overnight stay before flying out the next day. The hotel is ideal for travellers on a budget who want value for money.

Thankyou to Shateen and all the staff I was there for five weeks with my wife very Ill in PCH they kept the rooms for me spotless and made sure we had everything we needed before and after my wife came out of hospital putting us on the ground floor for easy access to the room .Letting us extend our stay when needed so one less thing to worry about .
Bus stop close by if needed to get around Brisbane without driving .
Friendliest and most accommodating motel stay we have ever experienced we will be back for our annual visits without hesitation.
Kindly

The motel is very noisy in its location with traffic noise. They say you get free internet but fail to tell you after you arrive that you only get a very small megabytes ( not gigabytes) which you will use up within a very short time, my wife got about 10 minutes on a video call to her family then you are cut off and you have to pay, after I asked the office staff if this was correct they said yes and the just turned away from me. To add to the noise the swimming pool is in the center around the rooms and the pool filter motor is constantly running is the noise comes straight into your room. The entrance door also doesn’t close properly and opened by itself sometimes. For the price they are asking I wouldn’t stay there again as there are plenty of other motels in that area.

Great motel with convenient location to shops and Northside hospitals. Plenty of parking in front of rooms.
Rooms are clean and well presently. Motel is a little older but that is reflective in cost of rooms. Would defiantly stay again without hesitation as everything is close.
Room also had a kettle, toaster and microwave, along with complimentary tea, coffee, milk & biscuits.

Do not stay here. Booked 2 night stay for family of 4. Room 15 smelt of pungent cat spray, the bathroom ceiling was mouldy, we killed 5 bugs which included coackrach and other suspect insects near beds. There were stained sheets and hairs in beds and on pillows. We booked for 2 nights, stayed 1 and requested refund on 2nd night when we decided it was unclean and unhygienic room. Management declined request for a refund on second night based on their cancellation policy, offered us an alternate room which we declined and then did not follow up with us after we were advised the manager would check if refund was possible via his manager. The manager inspected room and saw dead insect killed beside bed during the inspection of room. Not an positive experience which we paid $370.00 for in good faith and on understanding this business would honour its contract of providing clean and safe room for our family. We made respectful and reasonable refund of only one night based on our complaint. Terrible and have itchy rash to top it off!

Great reception, very clean rooms, very little traffic noise. Convenient location for North side business. Handy to several food outlets. Very close to Chermside Shopping Centre, walking or by bus. Bus stop right outside and across the street. Off street parking. Swimming pool. Tea-making and microwave provided. Walk-in shower with a shower head high enough for even people over 6 feet tall to stand under! Beds are very comfortable and, I normally travel with my own pillow, but this time didn't need it as the pillows provided were really nice. Chintan is an amazingly cheerful and helpful host; nothing is too much trouble for him. Will stay again.

No public transport to Prince Charles cab costs about $8
Answer from CMI644Gympie
Brisbane, Australia1 contribution
Hi We are approx 800m from the Prince Charles. Part of our service is we can deliver you to the hospital but you need to find your own way back. Public transport is just in front of our building to and from the city.

Hi thank you for your question. We are just 10-15 minutes from the airport depending on traffic & the Entertainment Centre is just approximately the same distance so 10 - 15 minutes.
