This hotel, close to the cruise ship terminal, was ideal. Extremely clean rooms and super comfy beds. Staff were really friendly and helpful. They have a shuttle bus to the airport and cruise terminal. Good value for money and would stay here again

We stayed for just one night and the service on arrival was excellent. The room very clean and the location to the Brisbane International Airport was great. The price for the room was very reasonable too so all in all a great motel for a couple of nights in Brisbane.

Hi Sharon, This property does have a triple room, ie 1 queen bed and 1 single. I think they should be able to split the queen but not sure. Failing that they have a family room which would work for you. Highly recommend this motel. Janet

"Request double or single beds. We were adjacent to th main road, but still very quiet."
"Ask for a quiet room"
"Choose rooms on the road side as the sun radiates heat off the wall on the other side making the rooms extremely hot and uncomfortable."
"due to the double glazing on the windows you could get any room and there is a lift."
"Ground floor was good for the unpacking car but they have lifts as well."
US$89 - US$126 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
