    « The property was a non smoking property. »

    Did not get the room i booked. When we arrived we found out The property was a non smoking property. Under Property Disclosure on Booking.com it did not say it was a non smoking property. I booked a room with a Balcony so i could smoke and found out in the room i could not. The walls were paper thin so we listened to the room next doors TV all night, and as all Hotels Check out is a 10am and check in 2pm Why start cleaning rooms at 7am when people are trying to sleep. Breakfast Included was advertised beautiful but all we got was cereal and toast.

    « Perfect after a late flight »

    I arrived at the airport at 1am. The check in was great given how late it was (albeit a little confusing to begin with). The room was spacious, the bed was comfy and I had everything I needed to have a relaxing sleep and morning routine following a long haul flight. Great shower, and now little breakfast. The staff were friendly and conversational. Great value for money and only a $25 taxi fare from the international airport.

    « Close to Doomben Racecourse »

    My husband & I stayed here to be as close as possible to the racecourse we were attending. The motel is very clean with a friendly, welcoming feel. Our room was very quiet. The motel is incredible value and the light breakfast included was perfect.

    Impressed with all elements of this accommodation. Stayed for just the one night after getting to Brisbane Airport relatively late. Location to airport is ideal and facilities very good here. Will be back again

    « A great motel near to airport »

    On our road trip from Cairns to Brisbane the last night we stayed at this Excellent recently fully refurbished motel ideally located near to Brisbane Airport. The Reception manager was absolutely brilliant with a Smooth and painless check in and provided us with local information and directions. Our Room was very large and well equipped and above all spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable queen bed plus a single bed. It had a large walk in shower. A complimentary continental breakfast was provided in the price (which was very good value). This was sufficient to see us on our way and tide us over until lunch .

    « Friendly, clean, great value motel »

    Stayed here overnight after arriving from Adelaide, our flight was 5hrs late so the 24hr check in was a really bonus as we arrived after midnight. Room very clean, sheets and towels were a spotless white. Amenities in the room were appreciated and the complimentary body wash and shampoo had a great fresh smell. Very convenient for airport and city access. Price is excellent especially given the included continental breakfast. We would definately use again.

    room was a good size and modern. Very clean. bed was good. staff very friendly on check in. plenty of parking on site. It was too cold to use the spa but they can not control the weather. If your leaving before breaky hours the breakfast packs are a good option

    « A convenient, clean and great value overnight stay »

    This was our third time staying at the Best Western Airport 85 Motel with our family of 5 and it most definitely will not be the last! Apart from being in a very convenient location, close to most of the long stay airport parking options, it is always clean and tidy with easy check in and check out facilities, even after hours. Coming from the Sunshine Coast we usually check in after 7pm and check out before 6am, so we rarely have any contact with staff but our key is always ready in the key lock box and we simply ring through on the free phone outside the office to get the code. We always stay in the family rooms, and have stayed both upstairs and downstairs. These rooms consist of a comfortable queen size bed, a bunk bed and a roll out bed to accommodate our 3 children perfectly. It is also handy to have the kettle and the fridge in the room (this time we unfortunately forgot our lunch bag with sandwiches for the plane in the fridge though!!). It is always well priced compared to other similar properties around. We can definitely recommend this place as an excellent option for your airport accommodation! We will be back in September :-)

    « Fantastic,friendly and convenient »

    We stayed here following a long flight from the UK,very close to airport and right opposite train station into Brisbane, very friendly and helpful staff,clean apartment and lovely pool and jacuzzi,ideal to freshen up and relax. Breakfast was fab with lots to choose from. Definitely recommend and hope to visit again.

    « Want my money back for cancelled nights stay. »

    Please see previous Room smelled of urine and stale cigarette smoke, was not on the top floor as requested, had no outside line to call police or any other emergency help, was told that this was in heart of the city of Brisbane and was NOT - was in a very dangerous, seedy side of outer town, and was noisy and smelled awfully of urine and smoke.

    « Handy for airport »

    We needed to drop our hire car of at 6:30 am and this motel was within 5 minutes of the drop off place and also close to the DFO. Clean, tidy and quiet - bowls club is a 5 minute walk and does great meals. Ideal overnight stop for flights.

    « Convenient & Clean »

    Needed somewhere close to international airport for an early flight next day. Booked through Wotif easily. Communication and confirmation was very good. Three of us had a triple room - smallest room in complex with very little room for luggage but a friendly check in, clean room and everything you need for an overnighter. Close to Coles and lots of restaurants so good to walk to though many were closed day after public holiday. Thankfully our room had a microwave and crockery for three. Pool looked lovely though we didn't use. There are rooms upstairs so ring direct to book ground floor if you want a ground floor room. We would stay again.

    « Clean comfortable and close to the airport »

    With a 4am check-in time for an international flight out of Brisbane. Riom was spacious, bed comfortable. Small minibar which was great for cold water. Only complaint is the aircon tooks hours to make any difference to the room temp...time to replace or upgrade it

    « Convenient location comfortable room »

    I wanted a convenient location to break my journey from the airport to road connections.So after a 24 hour flight I just wanted a clean secure room with a comfortable bed and good shower. I got exactly that. Ok it looks a bit tired from the outside but the no frills room was spotless and comfortable. Stocks are limited in the fridge, from memory a can of Coke and a chocolate bar but there is a kettle to make a drink. If you have time for the breakfast (included in the price) it was more than adequate. I will mention the after hours check-in - this I had a problem with as it was dark and the button to press on the key pad (which gives a combination to the key safe) was not obvious to me. Luckily a staff member was around and came to the rescue. By the time I left in the morning I decided that I would use this Best Western again for a quick stop-over.

    « Quiet convenient location, spacious clean comfortable rooms »

    A group of friends stayed at this awesome motel after attending a concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre which isn't too far away. We all found the rooms to be spacious, clean and very tidy and in a lovely quiet convenient location, Portside is also very close by. Breakfast was great and a lovely surprise to be included in the rate. Thanks for a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this motel, the staff were so helpful, warm and friendly too.

    « Good Location & Great Staff! »

    We stayed twice. An overnight stay on the way to MacKay and four nights before our return flight to Canada. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The motel is near the airport and is within walking distance to the Portside Wharf, restaurants and some shops. We would stay here again.

    « Less than impresses »

    This was the only negative in my holiday, they did let us check in early which was a bonus, but I want happy that they had already charged my CC before I arrived, after all they knew I was coming and should have waited as I was going halves with a friend, also the rooms have very thin walls, so not good if you have noisy neighbors. Rooms are clean a comfortable, if a little on the cramped side, they do have a good complimentary breakfast.

    « Excellent Location for Airport or pre Cruise stay »

    « Excellent overnight stay near to Airport »

    Decided to stay for just one night at a less expensive Motel near to where I was picking up my Motorhome that I was renting but also near to the Airport. Wasn't disappointed. Only a small complex (in area) but is two storey building. Parking is in front of ground floor rooms in quadrangle. Manager very pleasant at check-in. Had pleasant sleep in very nice room. Does have pool but didn't have time to use. Motel is across road from Doomben Train Station so very convenient if needing public transport Only has breakfast facilities (Continental) which was included so went to Gallopers Sports (Bowls) Club nearby for dinner (about 400 metres away).

    Great place to stay, very helpful when we came in after the office had closed. I have stayed here more than once. Will stay again when catching flights. Close to airport and train station. Great rooms I havent't stayed long enough to be able to use the pool but there is alway next time.

    « Convenient Overnight Stay »

    We stayed here just one night for convenience so as to be close to family & it was simple, clean & a good choice. Check in (& out) was easy, our room was spacious enough with a very comfy bed & the included buffet breakfast was nice. Everyone we spoke with was lovely & very helpful. Easy access into & out of the city using public transport, the train station is literally across the road & bus stops just along the road.

    « Great stay for stopover in Brisbane! »

    Friendly staff. Accommodating to early check in ! Great advice on how to spend our day touring Brisbane CBD. Very clean room. New lamp shades. Easy for 2 singles to share. Took a bit to find the second trash can located in a drawer pull out in kitchen area. But that was not a big issue.

    « Affordable Weekend Getaway... »

    Whilst the Motel may not generally have the Kerb Appeal as some of the Nearby Accommodation - Don't be Fooled! - We found our Ground Floor King Room (11) to be Spacious, Clean, Tidy & Cosy... For your convenience the room had available a Toaster, Tea/Coffee Facilities + Microwave with Plates/Cutlery, an In-room Safe... The Room Tariff was very reasonable for the offered accommodation which included Complimentary (Continental) Breakfast for 2... And What a Handy Location - within minutes to the Cruise Ship Terminal & Bretts Wharf to catch the City Cat, a short 10 minute drive to the Domestic/International Airport, Close to some nice eatery's (could Highly Recommend "Eat Street Northshore" open Friday/Saturday evenings)... We were able to get on the M1 & be at the Boondall Entertainment Centre being only14 K's away.... Free Parking is available Onsite - it is worth noting there is a 2.1 metre height restriction upon entering the Motel Carpark... The Grounds (BBQ Area) + Pool is very well looked after... Thank you to the Friendly Hosts - we could Highly Recommend Best Western Airport 85 Motel!...

    « Great little Motel »

    We arrived at this hotel after a flight from Adelaide with 3 children (1 of those a baby) it was fairly close to the airport and easy to find with the GPS. On our arrival at approx 9.30pm we had to use the after hours box to obtain our room key which was pretty straight forward, There was only 1 car park left in the motel thankfully as lugging all our stuff and the tired kids would not have been ideal! This property is 2 story so if you are disabled or have trouble getting luggage upstairs make sure you book a ground floor unit. We stayed in a family room which consisted of a king bed plus a single bunk. Beds were comfortable and clean. The room had a small table and 2 chairs, ironing board, safe, microwave, kettle, toaster, plates, bowls and cups, mugs, stuff for tea and coffee. It also had a fridge with a small minibar with coke, fanta, lemonade, water (all $3 each) noodles $4.50 and chips for $3. The office also had a range of other food and toiletries a tired traveler may need. I booked this hotel through wotif for $187 a night as it said it included breakfast upon paying and confirmation email it says breakfast only for 2 people which is very annoying this was my one pet peave with this place. You book for 2a3c you expect to have free breakfast for all included in the room rate. Thankfully upon arriving at the dining room for breakfast children aged 0-3 are free which was 2 of my kids and aged 4-11 is $6, 12 and over $12. The dining room is only open M-F 6.30am-8.30am, Sat-Sun and public holidays 7am-9am. Breakfast selection was continental. They had cereals, weetbix, cornflakes, allbran, a variety of different breads,fruitbread, fruit, peach cups, yogurt, tea coffee and juices all very satisfying. The staff were all very friendly. Would recommend this place for a short stay in Brisbane.

    « Great for the night before a flight... »

    This is a nice location for the Brisbane airport, just a few kilometers away with a gas station along the way to top of the tank of your rental car. We had a nice family room with ample closet and storage space for 2 adults and 2 adult children. Wifi worked well and the hotel was quiet with helpful welcoming staff. We were well rested for our early morning flight...would stay again.

    Easy and quick check-in, lovely service with a smile, plus the room is spotless and faultless. With free wifi and a quick 10 minute drive to the Airport, this really is the perfect place! If we visit Brisbane again - we are coming here!

    « Very comfortable and clean »

    We had a great time as we stayed for a total of 9 nights during two separate stays for our vacation from the US. We were absolutely treated like family by Greg and Kristine and the rooms were always clean and appropriately restocked. They were even understanding of the traveling woes of hauling a toddler around. I would minus 1 star from the overall rating due to inconsistent treatment from managers that covered a weekend. They were not as knowledgeable or friendly as the usual managers, but this only spanned one weekend of our trip... so no big deal. All in, this is a great place to stay and we would not hesitate staying there again.

    « Close to Airport and rail system »

    We enjoyed our one night stay. It is close to the airport and rail. It includes a continental breakfast. It is in a safe area. We arrived after dark and felt safe and found our room easily. The room was clean. We were satisfied.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    We arrived early evening to be greeted by a cheerful and very helpful Chris. She offered an upgrade thanks to the owner. Room was a family room offering plenty of space for our 3 night stay. Breakfast was included, full continental is offered which is more than adequate. Greg was very welcoming in the breakfast room running through the food on offer. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff we dealt with during our stay. Opposite station into the city which we thought would be noisy, but never bothered us at night. Loved to have used the pool but unfortunately the weather wasn't in our favour. Room includes parking which is a big plus, along with the free wifi offered. Overall very happy with our stay here and would definitely return when we venture east to Brisvegas again.

    « Super Clean! »

    Stayed for overnight for an early flight. All the amenities you could ask for including Douwe Egbert coffee!! Whole room and bath squeaky clean! I would definitely stay there again. FYI, Cab fare to airport is $26 AU. X-ion shuttle is $15AU and need to schedule the night before on the courtesy phone. There is a breakfast but did not use as my flight was too early.

    « Disappointed in this "Best Western" »

    The room was clean and it had a nice bathroom. On two occasions we had to go to the front desk for towels to wipe up water off the tile in the hallway. It was raining so hard it bounced off the pavement at the back door and underneath it into the room. You would have thought the motel staff would have offered to clean it up. Back to the front desk again, this time for batteries for the t.v. remote, which wasn't working upon arrival. We were on ground level and the main door is a patio door. Once the drapes are closed for privacy, it was like you were in a box. We felt this motel is overpriced. Their breakfast is nothing special either. Some positives, they are 10 minutes to the airport and close to Portside, where you can grab a bite to eat and shop or Racecourse Road, where there are more restaurants. There's a couple of race courses within walking distance. The City Cat is close if you want to take a trip into downtown Brisbane on the river. It takes an hour from Portside and is only $4.10 pp. It's a very pretty trip. We would not stay here again.

    « Great for a brief stopover »

    Arrived late having just got off our flight so this was our stopover and was so easy to get too from the airport. Was given very clear instructions and received our key promptly. Room was easy to access and very clean and temperature was spot on. I slept like a log. Breakfast was great, no cooked breakfast but a range of bread to toast, cereals and fruit. Service was excellent. Bonus was breakfast was included in the hotel cost. Great way to start our holiday refreshed and ready to go. Basic minibar, no alcohol.

    « surprisingly good... »

    With a few past horror experiences at airport hotels under my belt, I approached this with great trepidation. Just an overnighter to join an international flight so did not require 5 star. What a pleasant surprise. Initial phone contact was extremely friendly. The check in was OK (rang staff who provided a safe combo) and my room was upstairs (did not appear to be a lift for those with heavy baggage). Very clean, relatively large (queen bed and a single), comfy bed and a good working shower. Good sized TV so pretty much all that was required. Bonus breakfast voucher for a small downstairs cafe and a short cab ride to the airport. My room was 20 and so was at the back of the property and very quiet. Good nights sleep at a reasonable price so will definitely stay here again for transfers.

    « The United Airlines equivilent of a Hotel »

    OK. This is as absolutely bad as it gets for this experienced traveler. We prepaid for a room for 2 nights in November 2016 for a trip in April 2017 staying at the hotel April 30 and May 1st 2017. Had our scheduled flight from Port Moresby been on time we would have arrived in Brisbane around 4:30 pm on April 30. However, that did not happen and we ended up arriving at the hotel on May 1 at around 9:00 am. Upon trying to check in to our prepaid room we were told that since we didn't show up on April 30 the hotel rented out our room and there were no other rooms available for us so we needed to move on. Think of that. The hotel got to sell the same room twice and also screwed us out of our prepaid reservation. As we were starting to drive away the manager ran out and said that they had an vacant room after all. At no time did they offer to reimburse us for the first night that we paid for and that they rented to someone else. So they sold the same room twice. I have filed a complaint with Best Western and am waiting to hear back from this hotel ownership.

    What a find. Clean, quiet, easy to find & continental breakfast included. You won't go hungry. Beds are very comfortable, we had a king in a ground floor room. The managers are very accommodating & will assist in any way. Taxis are easy to book & about a 15 min journey to the airport or take the shuttle bus. If you want to go to the city you catch a train from nearby.

    « Good Location close to Trains and Portside Cruise Terminal »

    We were joining a cruise from Portside and selected this motel as it was well rated and close to the Cruise Terminal. We were allocated a upstairs room which required carrying out luggage up the stairs. Lucky for me a staff member came to my assistance. Parking for cars is not allocated and is on a first come first served basis. The room was very quite, spacious and had a king size bed. All this made for a great nights sleep. Breakfast is included and consists the normal Continental style breakfast selections. Just right to send us on our way for the day. I would definitely stay here again.

    « A quiet clean place close to the airport »

    I booked a room for 3 adults to stay for a night to catch a connecting international flight. I was impressed by the room's cleanliness and found the bed cormfortable. The location was very quiet and Doomben railway station across the road. Restuarants weren't too far away but required a decent walk of 20 minutes plus. There were no beers in the mini fridge which would have been nice. Bathroom was clean and modern enough. Missed out on the breakfast because it only opened 7 a.m. on a Saturday which wasn't relayed to me so that was a shame. In all a happy customer for the price.

    « Very Disappointed »

    If you arrive at this place after 8:00 in the evening the reception is closed. You have to pick up a phone and talk with someone who wants your credit card first to secure the room which is a little uncomfortable not knowing who you are talking with! The room had a very strong cleaner smell that gave me a headache. The air-conditioner also had a smell so we had to turn it off even though it was hot outside. The room was very dated but one thing in its favor is the sheets were nice and clean. The next morning the receptionist was friendly but we left early and didn't even stay for breakfast. We paid way more than we should have for the quality of the room

    « Sympathetic and helpful - oasis after the cruise! »

    We arrived way too early after embarking a cruise, and were met by sympathetic Dave and Denise. We were given a cup of tea and a seat outside in the shade, while our room was made available! We were lucky to get the triple bedded room, but felt that perhaps two beds would have been more comfortable within the space. The room itself as very clean and tidy, and the beds comfy! The breakfast that was included for the first 2 people per booking was adequate with fruit, yoghurt, cereal, juice, toast and tea and coffee. We made full use of the lovely pool as well, and have to say that all staff we met were wonderful, cheerful and helpful. Would stay here again - so handy for cruise ships arriving/departing Brisbane! We paid $15 for a 10 min. taxi from the wharf and pre-booked a 15min. shuttle to the airport the next morning. All went smoothly..

    This hotel is located in a great little neighborhood within walking distance of many good little restaurants. Also available are grocery store, pharmacy/drug store and other services. The breakfast was adequate. The grounds are well appointed and maintained. The host is an absolute hoot and was very fun to talk to. Perfect for a one night layover at the Brisbane Airport.

    We stayed here for just 1 night after a 24 hour journey from Scotland, it is just 10 minutes from the airport by taxi and we were pleasantly surprised, the rooms are a good size and well appointed, we had a table & 2 chairs , large flat screen TV, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge with a minibar and by far the biggest and most comfortable bed I have ever had, Included in our room price was a continental breakfast.

    « Quiet retreat only minutes from the Brisbane Airport »

    We stayed here prior to meeting family flying in from overseas. The location was perfect for this purpose and was extremely well fitted out for a short stay and the room was spotless & extremely comfortable. The location was quiet & peaceful despite being only 2 blocks from Nudgee Rd. Its location is within easy walking distance to both Eagle Farm & Doomben racecourses as well as the Racecourse Rd café precinct. There was the added benefit of being directly opposite the Doomben railway station which gave us ready access to the city. The included continental breakfast was well provided and available in the garden setting at the front.

    This is a very small drive in motel. Certainly tricked by the Best Western sign. However small and basic, the staff were wonderful and made up for the let down. The rooms are sparse but clean. Location is close to airport but too far from city center. Overnighting for an early morning flight is the only reason to stay here.

    We stayed at this motel due to its location near the airport for 2 one night stays. Its location was great with lots of amenities and shops close at hand. One huge bonus for the motel is the railway station across the road. Travel into central Brisbane would have been so easy if we were staying longer. The managers of this motel are totally lovely and extremely helpful. The included breakfast was basic but extremely nice and well presented. The room was perfect in every way. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

    Stayed the night before our trip with my family, smooth, efficient & friendly check in on arrival. The room was spotlessly clean & comfortable. Its location is ideal for the airport & access to the city. Staff were very helpful & knowledgeable regards to local restaurants which were only a short distance away. Would thoroughly recommend this motel, great value for money. .

    « BED BUGS ! »

    Best Western started well, easy trip from Brisbane airport and with a rather late arrival keys and entry to room was done with ease. However room was dirty, didn't seem to have had a vac, thick dust along carpet, walls marked and to top it off starting itching after 20 mins in the bed and had a rash over most of my arms and legs. Convenient overnight stay, but not clean !

    « Typical Best Western »

    Stayed here due to proximity to the airport before an early flight. The facility is somewhat dated but the rooms are adequate for a one night stay. It was about $ 23 to cab to the airport in the morning. Getting to the hotel from the airport via trains took about an hour due to having to change lines at eagle station and it would have been Cheeper to cab than for 2 of us to train. (Wish we had known). Not a lot around the hotel for meals and activities unless your into horse racing. Prices downtown are less without the ne d tochange limes on the train n if taking transit. So if staying for a night and need an adequate spot a short cab rid away this would work well. If staying longer would recommend the Meriton Herschel street 2 blocks from Roma station with all the amenities and sometimes a lower price.

    « Convenient, friendly, clean »

    We wanted a nights rest after arriving at Brisbane airport at 10.30pm and found Airport 85 was perfect for our needs. It was almost midnight when we arrived, and it was easy to check in: there was a room key in a safety deposit box for us. Our room was clean and quiet (no traffic or airport noise). Breakfast was served from 7am and the staff were really helpful in giving us tips on tourist attractions, advice and maps for driving around, and even where to get cheap parking in Brisbane CBD.

    « Basic but perfect for a stop over. »

    Stayed for two nights white in transit to Roma from the UK. Arrived late at night and reception was closed but there is a phone on the wall. Just press the button and your put through to someone who will give you the safe code to retrieve your key. Safe is to the right hand side of reception door. Although there are signs up saying please be quite as other guests are sleeping some do still drag the bags across the rough floor with the cases with wheels. It does tend to echo in the little court yard. Room was basic but pleasant. Did smell a little like dirty old clothes but not too bad. Bathroom a good size but the best thing is the bed was really comfortable. Along with the key, you get a free breakfast voucher for two people. It's a continental style with tea, coffee, a choice of juices, yogurt, fruit, cereal and toast. Just help yourself. Quite tasty and plenty of it. The lady in reception was very nice and helpful. She advised me where to eat in the evening and having no car, I was relying on things nearby. They have a new map which is vey helpful. This shows all the restaurants in the Ascot area. I settled on a the bowling club a very short walk to the end of the street and turn left. Good food quick service and very friendly. On the Sunday again the lady was very helpful when checking out and showed me that on the phone there are two Taxis you can call. By the phone is a reference number for each company to get to a better rate to the airport. All in I would stay again for a night or two perfect location for airport if it's a quick stop over.

    Location is very close to the airport. Train directly across the road, that runs regularly. It does stop at 8 pm. On a busy road, traffic was much lighter in the evening. Building is definitely older looking than the pictures. Room was clean, as was bathroom and towels. When I checked in (around 3 -3:30 pm) the door was open to allow ventilation. Even though every thing was clean, there was a smell of toilet/sewage? This was not just me who noticed this, as I was dropped of by relatives, who noticed this too. It either dissipated or I got used to it, as I turned on the bathroom fan, and had the front and back door open. I had been upgraded to a family room, that had a King bed and a top and bottom bunk bed, which partly obscured the outdoor light coming in, so the room was a bit dark. Staff were friendly, and breakfast was a standard continental style. Would actually rate as 2.5, but the half star is not an option. Nowhere near the 4 star, it was given, when I looked at the options.

    « Avoid Best Western Airport 85 Motel »

    These would have to be 2 of the rudest people. They make out to be friendly but offer no assistance or help at all. The woman at the desk (female manager) tries to say everyone else is a liar or that Bookings.com are no good and don't give her the information. Our friend had prebooked with Bookings.com for an early arrival - the female manager denied having those details even though my friend showed her the confirmation email and Airport 85 had the booking and payment. There were 6 of us and we asked if we could then have a room for an hour to change and pay cash, there were several rooms unused but they declined, the male manager informed me how he doubles or more the cost of wine he purchases at Dan Murphy's but the own does not - he only adds a couple of dollars which the manager said is stupid. You book for 4 people and pay for 4 people in a room but only get breakfast for 2, we were offered no free wifi. There is no sign on the cafe door to say the times so we arrived at 905am Sunday morning to be told that breakfast was over and we could not have anything to eat (cafe closes at 9am) hey put a sign on the main door not inside the cafe behind blinds. We ended up going down to Airway Motel which is a short 2 minute walk down the street and they accommodated us to a room for an hour so we could all change and get ready to go out - cash payment and they were so friendly so stay at Airway Motel instead next time. We took our bags back to 85 and later that night the male manager tried to say that they got a room ready at 10am for us and he tried to chase us up the road but we had gone. Lies as we were at our function at 930am and he knew our bags were in the lobby. The next morning on check out the female manager told us to use the free taxi phone and quote a number to get a fixed fare of $37.90 to the airport - I rang the taxi and quoted the number given but the girl said they don't know what that means and that they do not do "fixed fares" with Airport 85...I hung up and told the female manager who came out of the office yelling "they are lies they do I used it 2 weeks ago, they are lying"....that was scary - we got out maxi cab which cost $39.60 so I don't think the "fixed fare" was saving the 6 of us too much money. The motel managers just constantly blamed the Owner, Bookings.com, the taxi company for the poor service and their personalities. Tip would be to avoid this motel and use the Airway Motel 2 minutes up the road for a much nicer friendly welcoming business.

    Chose this because only 10 minutes drive from the airport; had a king size bed which was very comfortable; had trouble with the pillows as they were too high and firm; friendly efficient check-in; shower has minimal water pressure so was a bit dismal; very noisy fan in the bathroom which was also the light which makes for disruptive midnight toilet visits! free continental breakfast was available but we left very early; no dinner available but an easy 10 minute level walk to the Gallopers Restaurant at the Bowls Club which had great food and was warm and well appointed.

    We decided to stay at Best Western Airport 85 motel so that we could get to the airport instead of being stuck in traffic on the Gateway Motorway, and we were so glad we did. We had a lovely big room with a very comfortable king size bed and the proprietors gave us ideas for takeaway dinner. They also sell a few beers and soft drinks so you don't have to leave the room. They serve a very nice complimentary continental breakfast and have a phone link to a taxi pickup to get us to the airport. We arrived at the airport in good time so that we could arrive in Sydney to be picked up for an 18 day cruise to Honolulu with Carnival, which was also an excellent experience.

    We booked this motel through Qantas as a pre night stay to our overseas trip. The room was spacious with a king & single bed, 2 tub chairs, table, desk and another straight backed chair. The wardrobe housed plenty of hanging space, a safe, microwave, mini fridge, tea/coffee makinf facilities, available for purchase were noodle cups, as well as the usual assortment of chip/drinks etc. The bathroom had a large shower, vanity and toilet, a little more spacious than the norm. Shampoo/conditioner/soap were all supplied. The room had a back door with a pathway leading to an outdoor bbq area, which was a pleasant addition. A continental breakfast was included, which was quite adequate. The motel is situated across the road from Doomben railway station, but this only operates business hrs and is an end of line stop. The motel is in a very quiet street, so no noise except those leaving in the early hours to make their way to the international terminal. All in all a great stay, and we will stay here again when we need an overnight before/after a flight.

    I stayed at this hotel for one night to recover from jetlag (having been on airplanes for 20+ hours before arriving at Brisbane) before continuing onto Melbourne (where my tour was to begin). The hotel is only about 10 or 15 minutes from the airport, was very clean and quiet. Additionally, the hotel was very gracious in providing information and help via email before I arrived. Just what I was looking for - a great place to get a good night's sleep before finishing my air travel to Melbourne.

    « Don't arrive late »

    Excellent room. Comfortable bed. Friendly managers. Reasonable breakfast. But beware, there are at least TWO places with the same address - 40 Lamington Ave. If you are not familiar with Brisbane and if you are using sat navigation make sure you find the one in Ascot! Not like us and at least one other person! Oh, and don't arrive late. After the office shuts, you will be reliant on the after hours telephone service to get access to your key. We waited over 45 minutes for them to respond - and we weren't alone. And the phone on the wall didn't work either - we had to use a mobile. As we had just arrived from Singapore and hadn't yet got an Australian SIM we had to borrow a phone from another guest. Allegedly, response time should be 2 or 3 minutes. If that is the case, we were just unlucky. However, it's enough to put us off this motel for our next visit. Beware.

    We booked this hotel for one night so we could get our flight the next day, it says on the email that they do close check in at 8pm, i think this is a bit of an inconvenience especially as its an airport hotel and people have flights at all different times, we had trouble getting our bags so we ran a bit late so i rang the hotel and they managed to keep it open til we got there which was nice of them. The rooms are clean, spacious and the showers are really good just what you need after a long flight! The room rate included breakfast, tea, coffee, cereal, bread, fruit etc. The man on breakfast was lovely i didn't get his name but he was so friendly and a real credit to the hotel! We checked out at 10am and our flight wasn't til 11.45pm so we had a long wait ahead of us we asked if we could stay by the pool all day and that was fine they even looked after our suitcases for us which was great. However, they don't have any downstairs bathrooms so we only ended up staying there for a little while until we needed the toilet and unfortunately had to stay at the airport for hours. The hotel doesnt include lifts but it does include free wifi. Other than that it was a pleasant stay, lovely staff, beds are comfy, room is clean would stay there again for an overnight stay.

    We arrived into Brisbane in the late evening and this motel did exactly as it stated on the tin. It provided clean, no-frills, inexpensive accommodation close to the airport allowing me to be there for an 07:45 flight without any hassles or worry. The lovely owners both booked us a cab for our transfer at the time we checked in and opened breakfast for us promptly at 06:30hrs so we could grab a bite before heading off. The room was spacious, clean and the bathroom spotless and bright in white. The air conditioning cooled the room well although it could have done with a service to remove an annoying squeak on the fan blades. There's a swimming pool in the grounds but I never had a chance to use it.... it appeared clean and well maintained. If you are after a luxury hotel, this is not for you. If you want somewhere inexpensive to stay for a night that is clean, spacious and unpretentious this ticks the box.

No paper plates and plastic cutlery as experienced in other BW hotels. Clean and comfy rooms, with little kitchenette a big bonus.

    Small, unattended and the toilet / shower isn't nice i.e. old, yellow and smelly. You'll need to turn the aircon off if you intend to sleep there. If you've served in the army, or spent time in a medium security prison, you'll be ok.

    I had a great stay here. The hosts were so helpful and accommodating, and nothing was too much trouble - they also sell items you may need e.g. toiletries, ready-meals and drinks, which was perfect as I had not packed my toothbrush.

    A really nice place. We arrived late on the 31st December and stayed overnight. Very convenient to the airport, and there are some really nice shops and restaurants on the river a five minute drive away. The hotel room was spacious and comfortable. My only problem was that they charged my credit card without asking me first (doing so attracts an extra fee), however when I complained they were quick to remedy the situation by reversing the payment and letting me pay by Eftpos (debit card).

    Friendly reception at what appears a fairly basic motel. However the ground floor room that we stayed in was very clean and well equipped. Free parking in courtyard area though you might not always get car directly outside your room. There is a small but nice pool and seating area. Overall a good one night stop pre flight. Not a lot of eating options really close but there is a microwave in room. Downside was the hopeless wifi.

    For an overnight stay, I had to take a cab from the airport and it took a long (and unusual) 20 minutes. You may find others hotels closer to the airport. Also be mindful that if you arrive late, the only food option you have is to walk 500m in the dark to the Racecourse (Gallopers). The service was friendly but there is nothing too fancy in this motel. Quiet expensive for late booking regarding the room quality.

    « Goog choice if you want a budget grade hotel near the airport »

    From the point of saving money, there are hotels closer to the airport than this one which are more expensive. We arrived around 10:30pm just before the hotel office closed and were able to get into our room without an issue. The proprietors seem quite helpful especially when we needed to use a mobile phone to change our flight reservations, provide extra room towels and information no local transport and restaurants. Spent 2 nights in room 15. The hotel, actually motel consists of 2 floors. There is no elevator and we had heavy suitcases but one of the staff actually helped us lift them up the 2 flights of stairs. Our room was clean and everything worked. The view was that of the parking lot but there was also a small balcony on which we could dry clothes. There is a washer and dryer on site and a pool. We enjoyed a simple continental breakfast from 630-830 of fruit, cereal, toast, juice in an uncluttered atmosphere. The hotel is located directly across from a train station and so you can take the train into town but not the airport as it is not connected. Unfortunately it is a costly cab ride to anyplace in Brisbane and it set us back $32 for the 5km cab trip one way! The first night we could hear the TV in the next room until about 11pm but otherwise slept very well. This room has a small table and 2 chairs, a queen bed and a single bed, desk and chair, adequate storage space, closet with 10 hangers, microwave, fridge, team making facilities, kitchen utensils (plates, silverware, glasses), 2 lamps and nightstands, good a/c controls, small flat screen TV and a safe. For US travelers there are Australian plugs and so you must carry an adapter for 110VAC appliances. There is a small takeaway next door and restaurants are a 20 minute walk from the hotel. WIFI is free and works great! We enjoyed our stay and had no problems.

    « Great place to stay for a quick visit, recommended! »

    Very friendly and helpful staff. The free continental breakfast was a great touch with various cereals, toast, spreads, fruits and juice & coffee. Amenities included a microwave, fridge, cutlery and cups, iron & ironing board, bar fridge with mini bar snacks and beverages (included, tea, coffee, decaf coffee etc). Additional drinks, snacks and alcohol also available for purchase from reception (when they're open). Soap, shampoo and conditioner was provided although the bathroom was very small with little space to move around and not many places to put things. If you get a room upstairs then you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs so be prepared for this. There was a swimming pool onsite and lots of outside tables for alfresco dining, and a designated smoker's gazebo. Free parking and close to the city. The TV wasn't that great, there was only 6 or so channels, but that wasn't a problem for us since we were always out during the day. The rooms were very clean and tidy, however our room was a bit too small for our needs - there was 3 of us, the room had 3 single beds but was small and poorly laid out, there was a large table in the way which made walking around the room very difficult. Would not recommend this particular layout, but the other rooms seemed fine. most rooms have a balcony, but ours didn't. Would definitely stay there again as it is in a very convenient location at only 5-10 mins from the airport.

    « Only if you're desperate. »

    Inconsiderate management. Thoughtless. Breakfast is the least possible. They put you in an upstairs room when you check in after midnight, and there's no lift....... they charge $25 per hour after 10am to have a late check-out, even if you check in after midnight... Left a bad taste in the mouth, and the wet paint everywhere was not responsible for that. Safe was locked and did not work as per instructions. It was clean. The bed was decent.

    Extremely unhappy! Don't book this hotel especially if you are going to the airport... they offer absolutely no leeway! I had issues with my son's passport and unfortunately couldnt stay the date intended so tried to change the booking to a different date... it was slightly out of the 24 hour period so they took 170 plus wanted to charge me an additional 150! I was happy to pay an additional but not 150... absolute joke! Obviously they don't want returning customers. Absolutely no empathy.. I understand if we had cancelled the whole booking but this wasn't the case! I will be telling all friends, family, and all social media not to stay at this hotel! What money hungry horrible owners!

    « No assistance in getting from airport to hotel »

    I was transferring between flights so I just wanted a hotel to stay at overnight near the airport. On booking.com, this is advertised as having a shuttle bus, so I thought that would be ideal and booked the hotel. I didn't realise that you had to book the shuttle bus in advance - it wasn't made clear at the time of booking. I called the hotel, expecting them to tell me which bus to catch, the reception was closed (at 8pm which is ridiculuoulsy early - we're in the 21st century), so I had to talk to someone at the Best Western in general. I had to get an expensive taxi, costing $39. I then asked about a shuttle bus in the morning - again they were willing to offer no assistance, so again I had to arrange a taxi for the morning, costing $31. The hotel isn't that close to the airport. Breakfast was just cereal, toast and jam - it does the job but a continental breakfast often includes ham or cheese, a crossiant a pastry and a boiled in my experience. I talked to the lady on reception in the morning and she said that she is at reception from 7am to 8pm. I suggested they should hire someone else to be there for a few more hours and she said it wasn't worth their while. At AUD$155 per night, I would expect better customer service with someone to welcome me in when I got there. I've had to pay $70 for taxis, so it has been a very expensive overnight stay. I noticed afterwards that perhaps I could have got there using 2 trains, but that wasn't pointed out to me. There also was no information book in the room on transport, hotel amenities or anything else. Usually hotels provide a book with these details. If you want somewhere convenient for the airport, you're better off picking a hotel near a train station on the airport line and it would probably be cheaper to stay there.

    We required a family room for a night near the airport. The managers were friendly and helpful and the rooms a decent size. The linen was clean as was the rest of the room. We initially thought the nearby train would be a noisy problem, but this was not the case. Shut the sliding door and the external noises disappeared. Breakfast was fine, juices, coffee tea, toast and cereals. Plenty of choices too. Limited vehicle parking, with no assigned bays, maybe an issue sometimes, luckily not for us. If you have heavy suitcases, try to pre-book a downstairs room.

    Our stay at the Best Western Airport 85 was a very pleasant one. The room was clean and had everything we needed after arriving from a longer flight, and the late check-in procedure worked fine. But what makes the difference to other standardized chain hotels was the staff, especially Greg and Kristine, who run the place. They were giving us helpful tips and advice on our further travels. While getting our rental car we were allowed to leave our luggage with them and Greg even gave us a styrofoam cooler that somebody had left in the room a couple of weeks ago for our trip through Australia.

Thank you very much for a very friendly and pleasant welcome in Brisbane, Australia!

    We arrived on a late flight and thought a night near the airport would be better than a long drive.

The room was nice and had everything we could have needed, tea, coffee, snacks, TV, Foxtel, shampoo, etc.. There were 2 adults and 3 kids in 1 room so a bit of a squeeze but with bunk-beds and a pull out bed together with a large king sized double we were all sorted. I expected some noise from the nearby rail track but honestly never heard it Breakfast was complimentary and was good, staff were excellent at keeping up with tidying away plates and topping up the supplies. Really couldn't fault this place for a budget motel for a couple of nights.

    Good value for money, close to Brisbane Airport, which was great for our early morning fligh. The receptionist provided information to places for dinner. The room was comfy and clean. Internet was available and offered on arrival.
