Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great '2 night stay to visit family. Clean, comfortable and affordable. Joined best western group for discount. Close to clubs and shops. Quiet despite being on a busy road. Had a $10 special at Kirra Surf Club which was great and available Mondays and Wednesdays. A bowl and detergent were provided to wash up dishes much more hygienic than using the bathroom sink which is usually the case. Would stay again. Staff friendly and helpful.

Spacious and comfortable refurbished rooms with parking at door, excellent beds and linen. Nothing seems ever a problem for welcoming on site Owners. Not in walking distance of shops or Clubs but short drive to everything.

We had an awesome time at this hotel. It was conveniently located near the airport and was only a fairly short bus ride to surfers paradise. Karen went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. She was very helpful in telling us the top things to see and do and how to get there. Room was very clean and had great amenities. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Gold Coast.

We booked this motel so that we can rest prior to catching a late night flight. The room is very clean and cozy and has great amenities (microwave, tea/coffee, utensils, etc) and parking is free. The only drawback is that due to its close vicinity to the airport, sound from the planes could be distracting at times. Other than that room is great value for money and above average compared to other motels. Would recommend it for a short stay or for a base to visit the surroundings.

This motel goes the"extra mile" to please . Excellent customer experience. Room had microwave, plenty of power points, superior lighting, comfortable chairs, new and decent pillows. Also larger bathroom and comprehensive motel guide. Quiet fridge and air conditioner

Of all the hotels we've stayed at in our Australia trip, this is by far the best accommodation! Although it's only a motel and not a 5 star hotel, but the service and the cleanliness of the room exceeded our expectations. The room is larger than what you expect in a motel, it has microwave, fridge and toiletries. You will find 2 binders with all the restaurants, shopping Centres and all information you might need in and around the area. We had a very early flight the following day and the manager happily booked our transport the day before ensuring we get to the airport in time. It is situated in a residential area with a child daycare centre next door. Very budget friendly and very close to the airport. I'm very happy with my stay here.

The location of this Motel is very handy. Karen was very friendly and helpful. The units are very clean and well maintained. Top of the range 5star Motels are not as clean as this Motel. I can highly recommend this Motel if you are staying at the Tweed.

Our family had a terrific stay at the Best Western Tweed Heads. We have stayed at a lot of Motels and this particular one is the best we have stayed in by far. The rooms are spacious, beds and pillows very comfortable, the rooms are extremely clean and the owner Karen is a real gem, very helpful, polite and friendly. The free Wi-Fi is great. anyone and everyone would not be disappointed if they stayed here.

Pleasantly surprised by everything about this motel ... have stayed in numerous motels over the past few years .. everything was 100%.. service .. facilities .. only minor irritation .. airplanes overhead .. but near to airport have to expect and not an annoyance really

Great spot to spend a few days. Located off the main traffic area but close to shopping centres etc. Some aircraft noise but didn't worry us. Bed was so comfy and there was everything thing you could ask for in corckery etc. Appreciated the washing up dish, cloth and detergent so you could wash your dishes.
