I was surprised when I arrived as I didnt expect much with the price I was paying ,However on arrival the staff at the "A Gentleman" was very welcoming ,Very Friendly and explained everything about the hotel ,Wifi is advertized as free ,It is not free you receive two hours per day and pay for anything extra unless you join the Choice rewards club which I did and the wifi was excellent for the entire 4days of my stay , The rooms ,Although they are dated are reasonably clean and large with very comfortable beds and clean linen all TV channels are working and a good selection including Assorted Foxtel channels ,The bathroom ,Once again a little dated was smallish and more care needs to be taken by the house cleaner around the toilet area ,The towels are small and thin but are satifactory and dont expect a handtowel or face cloth unless you request them ,Breakfast on average was fresh and costing around $10 is value for money . The hotel has a lockout time of 10 pm for the car park which is inconvenient but I understand the security reasons there is not a lot of street parking if you dont make the deadline ,All in all my stay was pleasant and I will return again and all of the staff are exceptional extremely friendly and helpful

Booked to stay here with our two kids aged 6 & 10 after Bbl game at the Gabba. Arrived to find poo smeared on the bathroom wall next to the toilet. Management did their best to clean it but a stain remained. Hollow core doors mean you can hear everything plus traffic noise was significant on a Wednesday night. The pool water is murky. There seems to be some permanent residents who participate in some sketchy behaviour. Won't stay here again. Ever.

I have a large (by modern standards) family and the hotel staff were exceptionally helpful accommodating us. The service was excellent. The hotel is in a very good location - five minutes' walk from the Kangaroo Point cliff path, a few minutes more and you're at the Cliffs Cafe. Five minutes' walk south and you're at the Gabba (sports stadium), or one of the Brisbane bus hubs. An early check-in was handled graciously. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable. The building and grounds are well-maintained.

This Hotel is so run down & dirty. Its unsafe for anybody. I would not recommend anyone to stay here. You cant swim in the pool, Its dirty & taken over by occupants that live there. Very noisy & very old & run down.

Great stay, Lovely friendly service from the minute we arrived! Rooms were clean and high quality. Secure car park underneath! Prime location Close to the night life! Bathrooms were modern and spacious. Room also modern and spacious. Great stay! Highly recommended!! Thanks for the lovely service Econo lodge!

Don't compare with a 5-star hotel but if I rate it as a 3.5 star hotel, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed staying here. For the price you pay, it is definitely valued for money. Service was extremely good, Service staff greets you by your name and they always check on you to make sure everything is in good order. I requested them to help me receive and place my flowers for my wife prior to my arrival and they did more than just receiving it. They switched on the air condition to keep the room cool (it was 38 degrees that day) and also helped me watered the flowers. Whenever I move in and out of the reception, they never failed to greet or wish me. For the room, it is well equipped. Bed is good, firm enough but not too hard or soft. Easy to locate them with a big orange signage along the Main Street. Free secured parking. Also it is quiet at night, so you can get a really good sleep! If you ignore anything above, just remember "stay with them" if you are not looking at 5 star hotel.

We attended a family wedding at the nearby Pineapple Hotel. Our family booked a number of rooms at Econo Lodge. The staff were very accommodating, particularly with taking care of our group bookings. The rooms were functional and suited our needs. We didn't have any noise issues. The hotel is in a great location. The hotel allowed us to use their conference room free of charge (with conditions) on the morning after the wedding for a family gathering. The staff and managers were friendly, very accommodating and helpful. Thank you to the Econo Lodge for a great stay!! Your help was much appreciated.

The Econolodge is on the Kangaroo Pt and so well situated for the city, South Bank and the trendy areas arounf Fortitude Valley. The building is old - 1970s appearance - and, altho the rooms have been renovated they still have that 1970s feel. But they are good sized and the beds are comfortable. Airconditioning works well and there is free basement carparking and swimming pool. A bit noisy at night because the motel is situated on the main road (called Main St not surprisingly) but it didnt stop us sleeping well.

Pleasant staff but facilities were only moderately clean. You can hear EVERYTHING that goes on in the motel as rooms aren't designed to prevent outside noise which is extremely annoying. Not a family-friendly establishment... only recommend for one night stays max!

From the point of arrival to exit...the customer sevice was amazing! Nice spacy clean rooms and windows that open for fresh air. Pricing for room was great at 105 a night and secured parking for free. They dont charged you a holding security deposit like most motels/hotels do...which was a bonus. They catered to every need I had, even printing out a peice of paper! Definitely come back here and stay. Well done to Angela and Marco. You made my stay awesome😊
