“Easy access to Apollo Motorhomes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

We chose this motel as it was near Brisbane airport and also next to Apollo Motorhomes where we were to collect a vehicle the day after. It was satisfactory but no food available although it was Easter Sunday evening. Were given Takeaway options but we chose to walk the 1 mile down Nudgee Road to a Hotel for a meal. Didn't mind the walk although my wife became a little uneasy as we started to go through a quiet Industrial estate area before we found the hotel. Good meal at the Hotel and asked the lad about the walk back but he confirmed that it was 'as safe as most places'. Hotel is fine as a stop over motel

To start with the rooms were not clean food on the floor and hairs in the bathroom sink. After getting over the mess the Internet not wireless was not working. Tv controller also out of batteries. Well and as for the bed old uncomfortable lumpy broken do I need to go on. This bed surly was the worst I have ever slept on. I Would never stay here again. Don't be an unhappy camper make sure you don't get caught with second rate accommodation.

We booked here, and then i read the reviews and was a little scared at what we would find. However we were able to have an early checkin for$25 which was worthwhile as our luggage wouldnt fit into their lockers. Receptionist very friendly and helpful. This place is self rated and i dont think they would warrant **** as they give themselves. We own accommodation ourselves and know the requirements to earn 4 stars.

The room was clean and spacious, we like a firm mattress so the bed was fine. Maintenance is lacking (light out in bedroom, tv remote not working, no teatowel, but there are two cups two glasses and two plates and bowls, but only one teaspoon to eat with, and unless you bring a pair of scissors it is impossible to open the uht milk as they supplied a drinking carton, with a straw)
Yes it is in an out of the way area, but all accommodation close to Brisbane airport is at least as far away.
But i had done some research and found that there was a bus service across the road with a bus to Toombul shopping centre and from there it is possible to get anywhere. A taxi home from Westfield Chermisde was $22.

This is my third stay here and is great for an overnight stay, only 6 minutes from the airport by taxi (expect to pay $24) on Sundays as their courtesy coach does not run on Sundays.

There is a little cafe that provides a meal to tide you over, large rooms with ground floor courtyards.

This is a friendly run family motel.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have private outside courtyards
