Booked as it was close to a function we had to attend , photos online looked good however the reality was completely different . The room was filthy and smelt , the fridge and room had cockroaches in it , the walls were filthy , the bathroom was full of mould and the beds rather than made had simply had the covers pulled up over them , power boards with double adaptors plugged into double adaptors need I say more . I stay in a lot of places nationally with work and many of these are in remote locations and I understand and accept that we can't always stay 5 star however this place was just dirty and unhygienic . We left very shortly after we checked in !!!!

The room was dirty , ants in bathroom ,cracks in wall , shower taps where coming off ,someone tagged the paint work i was here "70", sticky stuff on the table, foxtel didnt work, no milk ,no hairdryer as per photo, no hand towel , no face washers , mold in shower , lamp shade are past it , duct tape on air condition ,seal door way not covered well,pool had rubbish in it at $150 a night for the ròm we had very poor

Was one of the cheapest place close to cbd with free parking but is not value for money. Room was clearly only dusted and not cleaned. The clauset had a deeply moldy smell and the bathroom was full of ants. There was still a dirty towel from previous guest. Sheets on bed were clean but furniture and fitting looked old and not super clean (lot of dust). Place is close to a noisy road and badly insulated. Easy aces to cbd with bus across the street. Second day we took our car to cbd as parking was cheaper than bus fare.

Day one I was greeted by several large cockroaches. The furnishings were stained, there was mould in several places, the floor was sticky under foot and even though the proprietor was friendly, we could not stay another night due to the noise and filth.

Helpful Managers, Clean Place, Quiet location, Close to bus and City. Not too close to a variety of restaurants but delivery options are available. Just avoid Gourmet deliveries. Go with a local delivery option. Good value.

I was done here for my UMAT exam which happened to be at the University. It was really close, enough so that I could walk and cheap. The owner was really nice, helped us check in late and let us leave the car there until the end of my exam at no extra charge. There was a microwave which made cooking easy, the beds were nice and the room clean. It had everything one needs the only thing is that it is an old style motel but as I said it was really nice and convenient.

I would like to thank Judy, the owner for her hospitality and kindness during our overnight stay. She looked after me and my daughter in law who was very ill and helped us any way she could. The room was very clean and comfortable. beds were great.

I came with a friend and we enquired for a twin share room and I was expecting a queen size bed and a smaller one, but they gave us 2 queen size bed with self contained stuff! Wow! Too much for as little as we wanted! Best place, though.

An inexpensive establishment in a city where accommodation can get pricey. It is on busy Gladstone Road but is on the high side of the street and set back, so noise is not an issue. It is an older motel: rooms are spacious and very clean. The managers are quite chatty and very helpful There is a stop for buses to Brisbane CBD virtually outside the door and the Uni of Queensland is a pleasant 10-minute stroll to the University of Queensland through Dutton Park (though not so pleasant in midday sun). The downside: it is a bit isolated, as there is not much of interest in the immediate local area. To get to the excellent restaurant precinct of West End you will need a car - and then it is only five minutes' drive..

Our room was very clean and fresh, car parked off main road right at our door, a big big plus in Brisbane. Owners friendly and very generous with facilities, milk etc. We walked through leafy suburb to Brewhouse, then next morning to Southbank, good exercise.
