Airport Hacienda Motel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

originally booked for an upstairs room which may have proved better - but with heavy cases to carry upstairs for an older couple to manage ( there was no lift) - they put us down in the downstairs dungeon room. It was shabby - stained carpets - cramped bathroom. - smelly - noisy early morning with some crash banging going on outside. definitely not recommending. Very nice managers tho. I kinda pitied them for running such a poor place. wifi hard to connect to.

I stayed for one night as a place to crash for the night. It was pretty much as advertised - a dated room which was clean. The bed was uncomfortable and everything was a bit tired. The continental breakfast was disappointing - no Weet-bix (!!) and only cold hard butter... It's passable as a place to stay for a night, but I will look elsewhere before returning - mostly on account of the bed being uncomfortable.

Friendly and very helpful staff. Only can complain about 1 thing and that is that for some reason the carpet in front of bathroom door was always wet. They looked after the car while we were on a cruise and charged a very small fee.

It was an average stay with high price tag. Room are cosy and having dining table inside the room which makes it look bad. It was an old place and requires through cleaning. Staffs are average as well no greeting or hospitality whatsoever.

Only saving grace for this place it's near the airport. Old fashioned. Very dated. Walls in room are concrete painted blocks. Furniture was old black painted and very scratched. Had a smell that we could not recognise. The bed was comfortable but had a metal head board that was screwed to the was? and the bed itself was not attached?

We stayed at the hacienda airport motel and booked with the room had mould on ceiling of room it was dusty to the point of severe hay fever and the smell of must was over whelming the only good thing was the helpful staff at reception. $110 I felt ripped off.

This motel is very close to the cruise terminal, within walking distance. Very quiet if you get a back room. Air conditioning excellent. Full amenities in the room including excellent WiFi. Very good restaurant. Bit difficult getting to it due to major road works. Friendly and helpful receptionist/

This is an older motel, we stayed as it is pet friendly, ok for an overnighter, in desperate need of an update, not the cleanest place we have stayed at the air conditioner was filthy. Friendly staff and free wifi. Has a pool and parking off road, surprisingly quiet as it is in a busy road. Would love to see it done up as it is in a great location.

Airport Hacienda is a place to NEVER EVER stay, coachroaches in the bathroom are not what I paided for. I'm a well seasoned traveler and was extremely discussed with this hotel. I had international guessed with me and they were modified at the site.

Arrived at Brisbane Airport to be recommended this place to stay for a night....big mistake, I have no idea how they can have it on their list!.....Got shown to a dark dingy brown all over room from the 70's, my heart sunk but I needed some sleep.....i tried to open the curtain to let in some light...the curtain was hooked over the rail and not on the rail track....the window was slightly open but the window winder was broken off so I couldn't close it for security and anyone could pry it open.....I got into bed and it was as hard as a rock.......the carpet felt dirty and alot of the fittings were full of old dust......I got up to go to the toilet, turned on the old fluesent bar light and saw the cockroach in the sink and wall so that was me, I asked to change rooms....still very dated but no cockroaches....nothing like the pictures and I they said they were renovating in 2017 but saw a previous review that said they were renovating in 2015!....friendly staff.....definately wouldn't go near this place again and can't believe they charge 110 dollars for such a dump.
