Very comfortable beds. Professional and caring staff. Rooms very clean. Easy late check in. Breakfast was very nice and reasonably priced. Close drive to Coolangatta Airport. Would definitely stay again.
This motel was a great find. Rooms were lovely and clean and very well appointed but even better were the staff when we booked and also on arrival. Keep in the great customer service it is much appreciated
First time staying here and Wow! I was very impressed with my overall experience, Janet was very friendly and always happy to help with anything I needed, The rooms were very clean & tidy and the beds were super comfy. The Continental Buffet Breakfast is great value with a variety of choices and fresh fruit. I would definitely stay here again as Its not very far away from the main town area. The planes going over didn't concern me at all, Excellent Motel
Rooms were clean and tidy. Karen was very friendly and helpful. The bed was soft and comfortable. Free convenient parking. You can hear the occasional plane overhead but the noise inside of the rooms was not bad. Would stay here again.
Great hotel, with nice rooms and friendly staff. Beds were excellent, with good mattress and comfy pillows, everything super clean and tidy. The rooms had minibar, but also microwave, toaster and kettle. Alternatively, there was breakfast at a fair price. The bathroom had a good size, with new sanitary ware and new tiles. The decoration was ok, with brick walls and neutral furniture. Free parking and proximity to the airport were also important.
Clean, Comfy, Karen is amazing as a host, everything is perfect, easy to check in, easy to check out, nothing is too much trouble, easy access, good food, Karen even arranged dinner for me from a local takeaway shop delivered to my door. Wonderful is the only way to describe the experience.
The beds! Are crazy comfortable. $5 airport transfer and $5 breakfast. Hotel staff are super cheerful! And very helpful! They will go out of their way to help you. Cannot rate these guys enough! Maybe a little out of the way for some wanting to sneak into town.
This hotel is extremely clean and well maintained and the staff extremely helpful and polite, nothing too much trouble. the breakfast was excellent and although their was some aircraft noise during the day this was not a problem and is very quiet at night due to the airport curfew - our room was at the back of the hotel and we had no road noise.
Staff were so friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay here again. Breakfast very reasonably priced and great value. Fresh fruit for breakfast ... what a great way to start the day! So close and handy to airport. We used the shuttle which was great. Nothing was a problem for staff, they were so helpful and happy to help.
Booked late night while travelling and what an excellent reception from Karen and her team. Nothing was a trouble and despite arriving late all the details were in the envelope in the locked box. Bed was excellent sleep and despite being so close to airport it is very quite here. Rooms look very modern and very clean. Car parking is easy even for bigger vehicles. Stopped off before new week on way back to Sydney and glad I choose this place as my weekend stopover.
My son and I stayed here as my husband was in John Flynn Hospital and it was only about a 10 minute drive there. Karen at reception was just a delight she was so friendly and so helpful with information about what was available to us. Our room was just so comfortable and spotlessly clean. All the little extra touches in the room that you don't usually get in a motel room made our stay just perfect. I will be telling all my family and friends about the motel. If you are staying in this area I would not hesitate to recommend Best Western Kennedy Drive I am sure you will not be disappointed. Thank you for a great stay.
Best Western at Tweed is excellent. It is value for money and Karen and her team can't do enough to help. The staff are extremely friendly and ensure that any visit is as valuable as the next. I highly recommend this motel to anyone looking for accommodation in and around Tweed Heads. The continental breakfast is excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
Absolutely best stay ! The staff are all extremely friendly and the owner is the first one to greet us! Have us heaps of information about what to do around locally so it made things really easy for us.
Great location close to airport Large room with king size beds Very clean, nicely decorated Good amenities everything for short stay Lovely service very friendly, very accomodating Nicely refurbished and clean Beautiful large bathroom newly renovated Value for money Highly recommend to others
We were very happy with our experience at this motel, where we stayed two nights. We had a few questions when we checked in and the operator was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, fairly no-frills but it offered all that we needed. Fresh milk for a cuppa is always a big plus and the (free) internet reception was strong. The motel is indeed quite close to the Gold Coast airport and may be under a flight path as the noise from planes was occasionally intrusive - though we certainly did not find that was the case of an evening, when there were no or very few flights. Would readily stay here again.
My husbane ,son & I stayed here for one night 17 /5 /18 as we had a Wedding to attend at Summer Grove Estate, Carool just 20 minutes up the road,so it was nice &handy to the Wedding Venue ,Shops ,Restraunts, Seagulls Club & Airport are also near by ,the owners Steve & Karen where very friendly our room was very nice & clean the beds where very,very comfortable.If we ever came this way again we will surely be staying here again. Highly Recommend a stay here .
Finding this place was a bit difficult through a neighborhood away from the beach. However since we stayed only for a night before our flight we easily used Uber to go into the town/beach for the evening. This hotel room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nicer than any motel I've stayed in. The employees were very friendly and helpful. We didn't have time to sit down to the included breakfast, but it looked very nice. The pool also looked nice. Many restaurants do delivery or Uber eats to this motel. The personal hotel transport for $5 was perfect. This is a great place to stay for a night before a flight.
Motel is not near city center or the beach. Nice and clean room with free parking and Internet But that's about it: no-frills motel offers you a clean room and comfortable bed. Breakfast is not included in the price. There is a swimming pool but I did not use.
My husband and I have stayed here several times in the past year. Karen the owner is so friendly and helpful. Rooms are spotless and beds comfortable. Good sized TV in room. Very handy to shops and clubs.
The Team at best Western made sure we have directions on how to get to the Motel had set the room up so once we arrived we could go straight to bed. Room was comfortable and clean and staff were friendly and caring.
A really lovely place to stay. We were catching flights the first time and needed a break the next stay. Great location for Gold coast attractions. Really lovely staff and great breakfast. We will be back.
Motel was selected because of it's proximity to the highway and our destination for the next morning. We had a short wait for check-in due to the owner being out to collect guests from the nearby airport but this was not a problem. Otherwise everything was to the quality expected except for the noisy bed. I feel the internet connection should be more secure.
Short overnight stay before catching morning flight. On arrival greeted by Karen; very friendly and welcoming. Room great; had everything we needed and very clean. Small fee for airport transfer. Overall very happy and would recommend.
We stayed here one night as it was close to the airport and we needed to be back at the airport the next morning. It was exceptionally clean, the staff were very accommodating, informative and thoughtful, and the breakfast choices accommodated all requirements (eg gluten free cereal, freshly cut delicious fruit)
Stayed in Best western Motel for 14 nights during the GC2018. Karen is absolutely amazing from phoning us in UK until the end of our stay in Oz she is one in a million, cannot do enough for you absolutely goes above and beyond anyone Iv ever known. The most genuine person iv ever met. This motel is spotlessly clean, the bed is the most comfiest bed iv ever been in. Supplied in room is a fridge, microwave, toaster, tea n coffee making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board even has a drying screen. Just amazing. Air con is great. A massive thanks to the cleaning maids who did a fantastic job daily. We were there predominantly for the games, karen supplied us with a cool bag and ice boxes which was amazing. Even supplied additional coat hangers. The on site laundry was brilliant i used it a couple of times. Breakfast was brilliant, fresh fruit, cereals, bread, muffins fresh juice tea n coffee, great start to the day. All food was well prepared and layout of breakfast room was great nice and airy and spotless. A massive thanks to Jenny who was amazing, very friendly, and who advised us of different day tours and local places to see. Cant praise this motel enough and would definately advise anyone to stay here. Its only 30 mins drive into Surfers Paradise and has lots of local places to eat and drink. Absolutely loved our time here at the BWM and was very sad to leave such lovely genuine people.
Karen and Debbie were wonderful. A family business that go over wine above to the ensure you are comfortable and welcomed. They provide drop offs to airport till 11 am approx but went out of their way to drop me a 3pm. The continental breakfast for $7.50 is fantastic. Fresh fruits like strawberries kiwi fruit cranberries blue berries .... yoghurts, cereals and an assortment of breads for toasting and muffins too !! Great start to the day. My room was spotless. Bed was so comfortable that I slept like a log. Delightful shower with a lovely clean and shiny bathroom. Location is few klm from beach but the bus transport is just 400 metres away and is very regular and reliable. Karen had the air con on for my 10.30 pm arrival which was great. Couldn't fault this accommodation in any way. Cost was very reasonable. Highly recommended. Thanks Karen and Debbie
On arrival you are welcomed by such a friendly face, Karen, who is so happy to assist in anyway she can during your stay. Rooms are exceptionally clean & has nice little touches such as milk, cheese & crackers. Bed & pillows are so comfortable. Breakfast is excellent & very good value for money. Highly recommend staying in this accommodation, everything about it is top quality . Mark & Gay Brisbane
We stay here every time we fly now. We are very well travelled and my wife has worked internationally as a travel guide and resort hotel photographer for 20 years. In a price range under $250 a night yoy will never do better anywhere. Tge beds are the absolute highest quality. The rooms are very modern, very clean and the staff are amazing.
We stayed here while attending a wedding at Summergrove Estate. We chose this motel because it seemed easy to find, and centrally located to where we needed to go and where we wanted to visit. Its just off the highway, so was a breeze to get to, and being located by the highway it made it easy to zip up and down the coast. The reception staff were lovely, and made check in so simple. The continental breakfast was a great, light brekky, to help start off the day, and as I don't eat heavy breakfasts it was just right for me. The only thing is that you can here the plans all day overhead, but it is by the airport so that was expected. Do not worry though, you do NOT hear any planes at night, we had restful sleeps during our stay. For a 'motel' this was GREAT. So clean, and big bed and good looking bathroom. We'd stay again.
This was such a well run and friendly motel -clean -good pool -excellent breakfast -quiet location and the front desk were so helpful .Nr. Coolangatta for eats and beach -very vibrant .I would recommend to anyone .
Very happy with this room. Exceptionally clean and well presented. Beds are soft and comfortable. Less than 10 minutes from Gold Coast Airport and on the free bus shuttle run to Seagulls Club. Yes you can hear the occasional plane overhead but the noise inside of the rooms was not really intrusive. So don't be put off by the proximity to the airport.
Great location for early morning flight to the airport, room was very clean and had everything you needed for a short stay, staff very friendly and willing to help inform you of anything you may need to know, would stay again!
Not the cheapest but definitely worth the few dollars extra to stay. We enjoyed the overall cleanliness and the comfort of the beds was truly amazing'. The only small detail we encountered was that the car parking spaces were not always available closest to our room.
What a fabulous hostess in a great location! Very appreciative of the assistance and “go the extra [email protected] service here. They treat you like friends and family...ALL staff ?? Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits, yoghurts, breads for toasting, cereal selection and coffee/teas. Yes, you hear the odd plane, but there are none at night. Very relaxing shaded pool. Would definitely stay again ??
On our way home from Noosa and we booked this motel, pleasantly surprised. The lady owner was very helpful. Unit was clean and tidy. We had an upper level room and although near the airport we were not bothered by aircraft noise. A good nights rest was had and breakfast was include in the price. Highly recommended.
Stayed here as we had a Christmas party to go to. The lady at reception was very friendly and couldn't of done more for us. The room was clean and tidy and the beds were very comfortable. Would totally recommend anyone to stay there.
Have stayed here twice & both times Karen has been amazing when I arrived & I found the rooms to be clean & tidy. The recent renovations are wonderful & whilst I was staying there they changed the bed accessories colouring to a beautiful teal green makes the room look so much more inviting.
We stayed here before a local triathlon and I must say I was really impressed. The service was outstanding and they were considerate enough to explain daylight savings so we didn't miss the race. The room was spotless and well cared for. I would happily stay here again even if it was just for a holiday!
Just a two-night stay to shake off the jet lag after travelling from Canada. A delightful welcome from Karen set us off well. Our room was on the small side but comfy and impeccably clean. Fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle available in the room. Just a short drive to the beautiful beaches of Coolangatta.
Stayed there two nights with my daughter and it was really extraordinary, how much care Mrs. Karen took for us - her guests. It's not a resort but very nice and very clean and orderly rooms with very comfortable beds. Lot's of beach life is very close , so good place to stay with a car , yes it's a Motel.
This motel has very well appointed comfortable clean rooms with everything you need to make your stay relaxing. It even has a swimming pool though you won't be doing long swims in it. It is close to the airport and there are shuttles to take you there. Kennedy drive is not in the main centre of Tweed Heads so you will need transport to get there but there is restaurants within walking distance. One downfall is that the motel is under the flight path of the Gold Coast airport so there is a bit of noise from landing and takeoff.
Spotless motel, greeted by such nice friendly owners. Eager to help with any questions. Easy to find & park. Dining close by, 5 minutes to Gold Coast airport. Nicely decorated, low cost breakfast offered.
You are greeted like they know you as family, a friendly smile and some chit chat. The room are great, well appointed and everything you need is in there. Well thought out !! Omg !! the beds are so comfy, like you would find in a 7 start resort hotel. The best I have stayed in for a long while. Here and OS. With the M1 close by, you can get to your Fav places fast. Highly recommend this Motel for your stay around the Gold Coast / Tweed Heads.
Hotel had the lovely Karen on check in and made us feel welcome. Very friendly and helpfull. Needed an extension cord for the room, it was delivered to our room shortly after request. Room was excellant- (had a microwave and toaster) Joined their rewards club for additional benefits for our next stay. Will definately be staying again!!!
Booked by calling the motel directly ... cannot see any reason to give the commission to a third party. The Manager was so helpful, arriving late the A/C was turned on and dinner options organised. The room was clean and had practical ideas such as a power board for all my electronic devices to charge. The bed was so soft ... sitting on it I felt like Goldie Locks, however I had a great nights sleep. Best value accommodation in the area.
Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel is a great place to stay when on the Gold Coast for business or pleasure. The owners and staff go out of their way to make your comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast was great value and a decent range of choices for a continental breakfast. The rooms were good and very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and had a good nights sleep.
We stayed here prior to flying overseas out of Gold Coast airport. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the hosts almost unbelievably friendly and helpful. That in itself would normally sell a good motel; however, in this case the attention to detail in the little things set this place apart. From the start you are offered either light or full-cream milk for your cuppa. Then the instant coffee is not just the standard fare of Nescafé or International roast; it's reasonably decent stuff: Moccona. Then there's a microwave and toaster in the room, a plastic tub for washing up your dishes, a full guide to local eating places including copies of the menus and, did I mention how helpful and friendly they are? On top of all that they will look after your car while you are away for a very reasonable price and will drop you off at and pick you up from the airport.
We stayed here after a long red eye from Japan. The owner was kind enough to let us check in early which was a huge relief to us. The room was spotless clean and the bed was so comfortable. Lots of space in the bathroom. PROS: Clean room Parking Refrigerator/Microwave Comfortable bed Great service Breakfast option CONS: Slow unpredictable internet
An overnight stay to meet up with lovely friends brought us to this Best Western and we couldn't fault it. Lovely greeting from Karen, offered to swap the plastic flutes I had packed for some glass ones which was lovely. Easy parking, great room and comfortable bed all combined to give us a great nights sleep. Room was fitted with small fridge, microwave, toaster and essential cutlery and crockery for minor meals. Clean and well presented bathroom too. Enjoyed our stay and would certainly return. Planes do pass over occasionally but were not a worry, hotel is quiet and didn't detect any street/traffic noise.
Kennedy Drive Motel is the best 3 star motel we have stayed in. The rooms are very clean and have been refurbished, with very comfortable beds and all the amenities you could wish for, from a microwave and coffee making facilities to free wifi. Best of all was the service; Karen is a perfectionist and does all she can to ensure that guests have an enjoyable stay.
After travelling round the gorgeous northern rivers hinterland we decided to overnight in Tweed heads and found the best western on Kennedy street had a great deal. Everything to do with the room was thought out and well organised. Extra multi board mounted on side of side table, dual USB outlets for charging our phones - we could even use our own Netflix on the smart TV. We also bought the $10 continental brekky which beat Maccas hands down. Fresh fruit including blueberries and strawberries as well - yummy. Best value stay on our trip. Walking distance to good eateries and Seagulls leagues club
Great place to stay and I will definitely return, the bed and pillows were comfortable, nice big bathroom, nice and quiet. Plenty of parking, internet was decent speed, perfect for a week of business or leisure.
This was our second time staying with Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel, and once again we could not fault the establishment. After our 5000km Outback NSW and QLD road trip, this motel was just perfect to relax and unwind. Check in was excellent with Karen, and we certainly felt most welcome. The room was spacious, and perfect for us as we like to self cater. The bathroom had recently been updated, and was very modern. The location is perfect when flying home from Gold Coast Airport, only a very short drive away. All up, highly recommended, and will be our choice when next visiting the Tweed Heads region.
The service given here by the Manager/Owner was outstanding. The offered information on restaurants and other food outlets in the area. Also advised about nearby attractions. Nothing was too much trouble. The free wi fi was great, the room was clean and had everything we needed, even freshener spray in the toilet just one of the many extras available.
If you are heading north or south on the M1 and need a spot to stop you couldn't go past this motel Staff are friendly and helpful and it was clean tidy and roomy It's a short walk to a couple of spots to buy dinner or close if you are needing to go to Gold Coast Airport
We stopped overnight on a trip to rural NSW, with a <2yr in tow. The property was very easy to find off the Highway, and the room was very clean and comfy. There was plenty of ample parking and lots of food options around the area. You can hear the planes taking off from the airport, but we found it quite soothing as a background noise and it didn't bother the bub.
Great Location, close to Tweed Heads and the beaches and the Gold Coast Airport. Very pleasant staff. Clean room with very comfortable beds. Staff very helpful in providing local dinner options with directions.
We've stayed here many times and have really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are always clean and well kept and very comfortable. You can hear the planes taking iff from gold coast but they ususlly stop around 9 or 10.
I have enjoyed staying here the two times I have travelled up for work. Very close to the beach where there are a good number of food options. The air port is close by but the planes do stop flying at around 10-1030 pm. So no disturbances when sleeping. High speed internet available. I will stay here again.
The motel is an older style, but looks as though it has just been refurbished. It was unbelievably fresh, clean and comfy. Bed linen was top quality, as was the bed. Bathroom well done and the kitchenette well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful. Location is quite close to the airport (one of the reasons we chose it, so we could drop off our hire car easily and catch a morning flight), but the plane noise wasn't bad. Nice location opposite the river. There aren't river views, but it was easy to go for a nice walk. Plenty of takeaways close by. Definitely worth a short stay
Lovely, friendly staff; even though I arrived after hours, Karen came to meet me and made sure everything was ok. The bed was so comfortable and the hotel is close to the airport but yet the area is really quiet. I only stayed 1 night, but will certainly return.
Excellent one night stay very friendly staff,very clean, very comfortable beds highly recommend, plenty of car park,very close to airport and clubs,easy find off the freeway,excellent stay all round..
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.
I had a great stay at Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel. Karen the owner was fantastic to deal with and extremely helpful. The free wi-fi worked well. It was a short uber ride ($10) into Coolangatta (lots of restaurants, beach etc. This motel is very close to the airport which is great for an early morning flight.
Very impressed with our stay!! Highly recommend & will stay here again. Room was exceptional, very clean & well maintained - our compliments to the staff. Karen is very warm, friendly & so helpful! Thank you all...Gay & Mark Brisbane
Stayed there for two separate nights while working locally- and I really enjoyed my stay. The staff were very helpful and accommodating- I had lost my luggage and they went out of their way with support and ongoing assistance. The room was nicely refurbished and stylish- a most comfortable bed. I had a range of 'bring in' food suppliers for dinner as I really didn't want to eat out. And I had personal service to shuttle me to my flight- a great stay!
Best Western is a good average motel, I thought, when I saw the photos. Brick walls, bed configuration, blah blah. However, when we got there )Sat 3 June) after a very long drive (and a bad start to the day, but that is another story..), Karen received us with her very bright smile. Sigh! We had come 'home'. She had upgraded us to a very comfortable room, the bed was really good, everything was in very good order. The room has a table a chairs, which not many motel rooms have. We even had biscuits! Karen showed us what was available to eat and to see around the area. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The owners of this motel are THE BEST - so very friendly and helpful. Imagine my dismay when she phoned after we had left, that I had left my iPad behind... However, nothing was too much and it has been posted alto me already. I would recommend this motel to anyone who needs a good night sleep in Tweed Heads.
Stayed one night for work and got a great price. The hotel is over the flight path, but not overly noisy. The rooms are really large with a small table and additional single bed which makes it really comfortable. The bathrooms have been updated and are lovely. There is plenty of parking, but my only complaint was the poles they used to attach to the shades for the vehicles which make it a bit tight to get in or out of, but no big deal. Hotel manager lovely and friendly. Bit far to town for a walk, but overall I would definately stay here again for work
The Motel is beautiful, new beds are unbelievably comfortable, free wifi, Netflix.. Karen was just amazing and helped us through a tough time out of the kindness of her heart. We will definitely go there again! Thank you Karen x
We had a ground floor room, was clean, incredibly comfortable. Bathrooms were upgraded. We had an after hours check in, which was accommodated easily. It was clear to see that the owners take pride in their rooms and service, small little details in the room show the attentiveness of the owners to the customer needs and experience. Comfortable, cosy, clean, great service and great location!! And Karen (whom we only spoke to over the phone) is absolutely lovely!
We stopped by the Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel on our way back to Sydney from Brisbane. What a difference it makes when you are greeted with a very nice sincere smile when you check in. Karen exemplifies the types of people that should be manning the reception in any place. Cleanliness and location is a big plus for this motel.
Had a wedding and we stayed 2 nights.Karen the owner is very helpful and arranged our taxi. Rooms very clean and comfortable and just what you need for a short stay.We are very happy to recommend a stay here!!
For what it is, this place is great value for money. Service and room were both excellent. Clean and tidy facility. Special mention to Karen on reception who was extremely friendly and helpful prior to and on check in. Truly an exceptional customer experience. The rooms are large and did the job for 2 adults and 3 kids (9, 7 and 5). Location was really handy as we were heading south on the M1 to Sydney. Would also be ideal for a stopover of you need to be at the Coolangatta airport. Not quite 5 stars as there were some minor things such as a window that wouldn't lock, bit noisy with aircraft noise due to proximity to airport and an air conditioner that made strange noises (but did work well). Would definitely recommend at the price, we paid $220 a night for a 2 bedroom that slept 5 comfortably.
A simple but very clean and well situated hotel. Extremely friendly and welcoming reception when checking in. They were more than happy to help out with ordering dinner to the room since they had no restaurant on their own. Bed was great and airconditioning aswell. Internet however not so good. Was a bit late to breakfast, and again, the will to help their guests was shown once more. I was asked what i wanted and they fixed it. Brilliant service.
This is one of the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in and one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in. Arrived late but was greeted by a smiling face to check me in. It's obvious the owners and their staff take a great deal of pride in their hotel
We we're here only for one night And found the hotel very good the room is spotless the beds very comfortable it was great that we had fridge and microwave in the room and Karen the manager was so helpful and pleasant nothing was too much trouble we would stay here again
Our Can-Am Spyder group stayed here at the end of our road trip. The rooms are very very good and clean. Karen, the manager is delightful and extremely helpful. This motel is definitely my preferred place to stay in Tweed Heads.
Tidy hotel but noisey and hosts have no consideration for families. Booked a 2 bedroom unit as there were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 kids) and was advised on check in that it was unavailable. Given two single units which weren't even next to each other. Did not get much sleep as unit next door had t.v. blaring through the night, hence I'm writing this review at 3.45 am. Will never stay here again.
Karen B, Owner at BEST WESTERN Kennedy Drive Motel, responded to this review
I'm so sorry Ronnie Booking.com let you book the 2 Bedroom unit when there was none available. When I realised the double booking I changed your booking to 2 rooms one deluxe twin and one Queen room side by side and had made a note to phone but ended up in hospital the next day, so I'm really sorry but the follow up was missed and totally my fault. Because of x cyclone Debbie and some guests stayed longer as they could not head south because of flooding across the M1 which is why your rooms ended up being 1 apart and so sorry I didn't get to explain that in person as I was tending to other guests while Sharon checked you in. Most guests are very respectful of their noise level but unless I know I cannot act. Once again please accept my sincere apology. Kind regards, Karen
We only stayed one night, the stay was perfect . Karen is one of the best motel managers we have met. she stayed open later for us and the room was immaculate. We had an early flight out in the morning and she made sure every thing ran to time. All done with a happy smiling face. We will use this Motel always, and recommend it to all especially anyone needing the air port.
Very helpful and friendly staff at check in. Room was spacious and comfortable. Parking was very easy. Free wifi provided but didn't use it. Continental type breakfast provided to room at reasonable cost. Short drive to centre of town.
Spent 1 night here. Room was quite large and very clean. Owners very helpful and always looking at ways to assist. Motel was booked out when we stayed so lots of people. Close to everything. Try to get a room towards the back of the building away from the road noise. Yes it is in the flight path of major airport but no problems at night and reasonably quiet.
?A nice clean motel room with a new bathroom?. Provided a small motel fridge, TV and ?table for two. There are seats outside the units for those that wish to smoke, making it more suitable for smokers than none smokers. ?It is noisy at times due to being ?close to the ?flight path? ?of the nearby Coolangatta airport?. The? bed was a bit soft for me but ?it maybe Ok for ?others ?who ?may like it soft. ?The internet was complementary though a bit erratic ??when using iPhones? ??(due to being in a regional area?)?. Karen at reception is welcoming and very friendly. With the exception of daytime aircraft noise this is a reasonable 3-4 star, good value and clean ??motel?.
We usually stay here once a year and the service and rooms are always top notch. They really look after their customers to make sure you are comfortable. The beds are super comfy to the point where i asked what brand it was. See you again next year!
We were greeted by a lovely, bubbly lady who was a wealth of information regarding food options, etc. Our room was very nice with a lovely upgraded bathroom. Comfortable bed and easy parking. Clean premises with easy to use air conditioning and TV. Also the Motel has very easy access to the Gold Coast airport which is only 10 minutes away. Thanks
This is a modern type motel as it's been refurbished. It's clean, comfortable and well maintained Good rate after booking only upon arrival in Tweed Heads. Continental breakfast for a little extra delivered to room. Out of the hustle of Tweed itself so very quiet after dark. Owner and staff delightful. Thank you for looking after me!
The rooms are so clean and management so willing to ensure your stay is perfect. No noise from the Kennedy Drive and position is so central. A plug for Ned Kelly's Pizza, just up the road. So tasteful and fresh. Both highly recommended.
Brilliant hotel, clean and friendly We were on a camping holiday towing our van and wanted accomodation that had room for it off the road overnight. Confirmed they did and arrived to find a large area available. Nice room upstairs with a comfy bed, thick towels, coffee and biscuits provided. Will return
We wanted to stay close to the Coolongatta Golf Club for a combined family reunion and Birthday. Checked out other motels in the area and decided on the Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel. We were not disappointed, Karen the owner took our booking and we were upgraded to a delux room simply by booking directly with the motel. All rooms have just been upgraded new matresses and renovated bathrooms. Housekeeping staff were excellent all requests were attended to promptly. The relief manager on duty was just as helpful, each day when she saw us she enquired if there was anything we wanted to make our stay more comfortable. Rooms are spotless and would definitely recommend this motel which is located close to all amenities and clubs in the area. The airport is close and aircraft do frequently land and take off and noise is not a problem which has been stated in other reviews.
This is our second stay here for business. The rooms are lovely and clean and well set out. Staff are super friendly and the beds and pillows are sooo comfortable! Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.
the room was big, clean and very comfortable, the hotel staff - Karen mainly was superb, very attentative, and made the stay very comfortable and warm. I will definitely stay there again and again, the hotel had all the basic but very good amenities, breaky avail, laundry services avail.
Super friendly owners and very obliging. Exceptionally clean room. Older premises but nicely renovated. Great value continental breakfast that was only$10 extra for the room. Good location. Ideal for passing through. Not really set out for extended stay. Well worth it.
Booked through TripAdvisor based on excellent reviews and price. Easy process, quickly confirmed by the motel email who also sent great directions. Booking in on arrival was fast and friendly and Karen was happy to recommend places for dinner to suit our budget. Loved the shade sails over car parks which also helped keep the hot Qld sun off the motel windows. Real bottles of milk was a welcome touch. Our triple room was very clean, modern, spacious and well presented. There were plenty of sockets to charge all our devices and nice cold air conditioning. Bath towels thick and fluffy and sheets crisp and clean. Overnight was extremely quiet - no road noise at all and minimal noise from neighbouring rooms. There are upstairs rooms so if you need ground floor access make sure you ask when booking. An interesting and important thing to note is the close proximity to the Qld border (and thr airport) but the motel is in NSW and on NSW Daylight saving time. We would definitely book again.
Good position. Well appointed rooms. Very roomy, modern & clean. Owner, Karen was the perfect host, suggested a place for lunch & dinner. Both were very good & close by! Another added touch in our room on arrival was a sachet called a "grooming kit", how cute was that! It included nail file, cotton buds, makeup removal pads and a little sewing kit. Very thoughtful, would definitely stay again.
My boyfriend and I chose this cute motel late night while driving up to Brisbane. Karen was so helpful! She left specific instructions on our phones on how to pick up the key and also left milk for us. We also had a voucher number for wifi. Karen also left a map for us with local restaurants and scenic sights nearby. Would definitely recommend just for the hospitality!
Great staff, very friendly and helpful. The rooms have gone through an upgrade with new bathroom and a very comfy bed. Very good value for money here and only 5 minutes from Coolangatta Beach. They have all the little extras you come to expect like free WiFi, Foxtel, tea, coffee and biscuits.
To catch an early flight the next day, we decided to stay near the airport for a night. Best western motel was quite near the pier for tweed river cruises and the seagulls club. It was only a 5-min drive to the airport. In about 10 minutes' drive, there is a tweed mall with a Woolsworth & a Coles attached to a petrol station. We booked a 2-bedroom suite at A$200 and it was enough to accommodate 5 of us with 2 King beds & 1 single bed. Check in was fast & easy and the staff was very nice and helpful. Wifi was strong and it has all basic amenities we need. The suite, though a little dark & stuffy, is very clean. The cleanliness has made up for the unpleasant strong odor of air freshener that filled the suite. We all had a good sleep there. At this price, it is a fair choice for a night's stay.
Upon arrive was greeted by Karen who was very welcoming & friendly. My room was upstairs and away from the main road so was very quiet. Room & amenities where very clean. Would definitely stay here again as it was also close to everything. Room was cleaned every day (I stayed for 4 days) and fresh towels where supplied daily. Great customer service.
Our flight from Coolangatta was cancelled and we needed a reasonably cheap room for the night. The manager Karen was lovely and helpful. Room was small and basic but for a small family room for AUD$190 we were very happy and comfortable. Had a great sleep and Karen organised a taxi for us for 5am so that was a great help.
Well looked after motel close to the NSW and Qld border attractions.Room was extremely clean and quite well appointed. Owners are very helpful and easy to deal with. Close to many food options . Overall would not hesitate to use as as base for a visit to the Tweed again.
I was very impressed by the size & comfort of the room. Modern plus the staff were very helpful in suggesting dining options for dinner. Location was convenient to the M1 & ideal stop-over on our trip home from Queensland.
Great service, super helpful staff who are well informed of all the local attractions and services. Rooms were clean and fresh, WIFI internet was excellent. I would stay here again for work or pleasure.
We stayed on Kennedy Drive as it was close to a wedding we were attending. The staff were helpful and friendly, rooms clean, beds were ever so comfortable. There was TV, aircon, iron and board, coffee and tea facilities and a pool. Great access on and off the M1 motorway. Free wi-fi during your stay a passcode is given to you on check in. Kennedy Drive will flood during severe rains and king tides.
Not the first time i have stayed here and wont be the last . Friendly greeting on arrival and very well laid out clean rooms . Far enough of the motorway to not hear noise , but close enough to get back on driving thru to Cairns
We have stayed the second time now at the Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel. Very friendly staff and the room was very clean. We were trying to break out the journey to the Gold Coast airport and stayed the night before we flew out. Not only can you leave your car there (small charge) friendly Karen drops you and picks you up at the GC airport! Would always stay here if I had an early flight from the GC.
Stayed here overnight with my husband & son- room was ok-very basic, bed was ok, bathroom had had a cheap makeover, was clean. Good for quick overnight stay, would not recommend for longer. RV reception was ver hit and miss, could hear the planes very clearly, however the fi stop between 11pm & 6am
The reception lady is so, so lovely and nice and helpful by suggesting food places and giving advice on places to travel. Such clean room and easy friendly establishment. Definitely a placecworth visiting again and again.
The room was very clean, everything worked very well and the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. We would never hesitate to stay there again, should we be passing through this part of the country again.
I booked last minute for a night here. I was impressed from the beginning. Karen was fabulous and made me feel at home. The room was perfect for a night with those comfortable king coiled beds and fridge for keeping those treats chilled. I would recommend this hotel to anyone in the area. Thank you for making my stay fabulous.
This is our second visit here. We were dropping off our daughter in law at the airport and decided to stay the night before heading off to Brisbane for another event. Karen was most welcoming and remembered our previous stay and greeted me by my first name. She is truly a lovely, friendly person. On collecting our large bottle of milk, we entered our room which was immaculate as per last time. On our return from the airport, which is only a five minute drive away, we caught the free bus to the Seagulls Club where we enjoyed a lovely meal to finish off our day. We will always return to this Motel whenever we need to travel to the airport because the service is good, the rooms are clean and the WiFi is excellent!
This is an average motel with small rooms and basic amenities. It's ok for 1 night stop over, but I wouldn't recommend it for longer than that. The rooms seem to be clean with air-con, microwave and small fridge. The reception desk is helpful.
Stayed overnight on our way further north. Is close to the motorway but is still a quiet motel with no traffic noise. Close to Seagulls Club for a nice dinner. Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable room and very reasonable rates. Would stay here again.
I have stayed in many places around the world and I would throughly recommend this motel. It was very clean and very cozy. I loved the uniqueness of the brickwork in the room.The only sad thing was that I only stayed one night. It is very close to the airport which is a bonus when you have an early flight. The service was amazing. They could not do enough to for you. So very helpful. I will stay there again and I will certainly be recommending this to everyone I know that travels to Australia. Thank you for your hospitality.
Great service when we arrived and so helpful 2nd time there now and we will be back again best place in tweed heads to stay that's for sure. Also our son loved the pool very much could not get him out
I stayed for an overnighter for next day's trip overseas. The airport shuttle service was excellent. Very friendly and welcoming staff, helped with how to get to nearby eateries and sceneries. . . . .
We had to check in late at night, a nice message was left with our key. We got into the room and were impressed! It had everything you'd need and more! Bed was very comfortable, we had a great sleep and will certainly stay again if in the area! There's seems to be a fair difference between a 3 star and a 3.5 as the hotel was quite a bit nicer than most 3 star hotels we usually stay in.
Easy location to find off the main freeway. Room was well equipped with great comfy beds. Love it when a hotel supplies biscuits to accompany a cuppa. Unfortunately the hotel is under the plane flight path. They do stop overnight but were a morning wake up call.
We stayed here by chance after making a wrong booking at another hotel in Surfers Paradise and found the rest of the Gold Coast booked out. So we ended up at this property where we will stay the next time we fly out. They offer car parking while you are away at 1/2 the price of the big carpark operators and provide a shuttle service to and from the airport. We paid about $120.00 for the night and could have saved $80.00 on our parking should we have known about their parking services. We were very pleased with our nights stay.
Great Hotel, Love staff, Karen went above to make the stay more comfortable, Perfect accommodation for a overnight stop before heading out to the gold coast airport for a early morning flight/shift, will defiantly stay here again
Excellent lighting for reading, toaster, microwave, kettle, Spotless room, attractive decor, pool, wonderfully comfortable bed, handy to Gold Coast and Northern NSW beaches, shopping centres, eating places, well priced, lovely host.
What a find! We were blown away by the overall presentation. Spotless, spacious and very friendly staff. We appreciated the better range of crockery, the provision of a microwave and quality bedding. Convenient location.
We checked into Best Western for the night on our way to Queensland it was easy to find and near main roads. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable, tea and coffee facilities were available with real milk not long life. The room also had a microwave and toaster. The Motel is a short drive from Seagulls club if you want to get dinner. It is located under the flight path for the Gold Coast air port however this was not a problem the few planes going over were not loud and the air port closes overnight. You need to be aware that your phone may change to Queensland time so if you need to be somewhere at a particular time keep an eye on this.
Great little find! We love our Best Western accommodation and were delighted to find Kennedy Drive Motel. Apart from always comfy "king koil" beds, our room was self contained which was an added (cost saving) bonus. Also friendly and thoughtful staff was most appreciated.
What a surprise! Helpful, friendly staff. Bed so comfortable just spotless throughout! No problems now choosing a motel on the Gold Coast this is a pearler! Leave the car at the motel catch a shuttle bus to a club 5 minutes away!
We stayed here for one night while heading further north. This is our 2nd visit and we will definitely be back again. Spotlessly clean, and the unit also has a microwave, plates, glasses and cutlery, which comes in handy. The little things are thought of- more so than some expensive places we have stayed in! Great wifi and the staff go out of their way to be accommodating.
The staff.. wow so friendly and helpful. We called to book a room while on the road. We needed a late check in which was made so easy by reception over the phone. Details for how to pick up keys late and directions from the motorway were texted to us after booking. Room was lovely with quality bedding. The only downside is the hotel is directly under the flight path for the airport that gave us an early wake up call. Regardless, would stay there again. Great service ??
My family and I stayed a week here and found the staff very friendly and helpful and the location ideal for proximity to airport and places to visit. The room was comfortable and clean. The swimming pool was well maintained and enjoyed daily by us. Everything was in working order and exactly what we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The rooms were also secure, with Internet, tv, microwave, fridge, toaster and air conditioning. The cleaners were available to clean and change towels daily. A great stay!
This motel and the staff are fantastic. I stay away from home for a majority of the month on business and this place is a haven... Great Beds, Linen, Pillows, all very important to me when I am away from home so much. The staff are Friendly, helpful and concerned about what they can do to make the stay bettter. Great place to stay.
Best Western Kennedy Drive is a well-maintained, clean and reasonably priced hotel. It is close to the airport but due to the time difference between NSW and QLD, the planes don't start till 7am, and not 6am.
Handy if needing to stay close to airport. Great service, great basic room for such a cheap price! Happy with our stay! Customer service was great, employees were friendly and helpful. Easy to use bus close by! $5 for ride provided by motel to airport which is ideal.
An older style property but fenovated bathroom,new beds, very clean and very comfortable. Easy to locate, just off Motorway,and very welcoming Manager,who was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and felt that our custom was valued.would definitely stay here again.
We stayed for only one night, but it was a good and clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. the rooms were big, the internet connection good - unfortunately we did not have time to use the pool and other facilities.
We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we walked through the door. Beautiful lady Karen at the front desk welcomed us & made us feel at home. Rooms are super clean & beds are comfortable. Highly recommended.
Fantastic little motel. The room and bathrooms are very clean. We have stayed in a lot of hotels and motels all over Australia everything from cheap to expensive , but this is the first time time that I would give someone an excellent for cleanliness
Staff are very welcoming and rooms presented to a high standard. Whilst rooms are not large, the beds are very comfy and has all the needed amenities. Away from the water, Clubs and other motels but easy drive nonetheless.
Check in friendly, quick & simple. Room clean, good facilities, comfortable bed but not especially keen on the exposed brick walls. Don't stay here if you're not used to aircraft noise & want to sleep past 7 am. It's right on the flight path from the airport & has nothing to suppress the noise like a Sydney airport hotel.
This was one of the best motels I have ever had the pleasure of staying. The bed was lovely and comfortable, the rooms quiet and cool and the staff very friendly. I didn't try the pool but it looked nice and inviting. Good movie channels and close to the airport.
Receptionist is very friendly and know exactly which place to recommend. Very relaxing and quiet place. The motel is just about 1.2 km away at seagull. Enjoyed the night and we actually had a good feed at star buffet
From the moment we booked our room over the phone nothing was too much trouble. Received a very warm welcome on arrival and was offered fresh milk. The room was lovely and was spotless. We even had a new Queen bed which was very comfortable.
We booked online without seeing this Hotel. The service we received on check in was of a very high standard. We were also amazed by the level of cleanliness and space in our room. It was a pleasure staying here and could not fault anything.
very good excellent value friendly staff bit out of the way but makes up for it in every other way if you want a quality motel at a good price this is it very handy to many locations and easy to get to if coming from south
A well run and friendly motel. However as a light sleeper there was lots of noise. Hardly had my head on the pillow when the first of many planes flew overhead on final approach into Gold Coast airport. However for the price you won't find anywhere as friendly and rooms were basic, offered reasonable space and were clean. Would recommend to the budget conscience or those passing through for a night.
Stayed for five nights. Very friendly and helpful service with good advice about eating out. Convenient location (if you have a car). Rooms were clean and reasonably modern although our room was a bit small.
Extremely friendly welcome on arrival with great suggestion for eating locally. Upstairs room was big and very peaceful sitting on veranda watching the thunder storms. Would definitely stay again and go back to Seagulls club for a great meal.
Hospitality redefined. Thank you Karen for your outstanding service. The proximity of the property to the airport suited our needs perfectly. Late international flight required late check in at the property and this was all pre arranged with no fuss. In fact nothing appeared to be too much trouble for management. Highly recommended property.
Great place friendly staff.Very clean throughout .Bbq facility including outside dinning table & cover.loverly swimming pool shadded with deck chairs and tables.Close to very fresh seafood shops , bakery and Chemist.Top fishing spot 5 minute walk.
Great location if you're flying out of Gold Coast Airport as we were. Easy access off the Pacific Highway, friendly, helpful check in, lovely receptionist. The rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean. Plenty of places to eat nearby, or you can order in. Good price too, we will certainly be back again.
This is our home from home when we travel - flying out of OOL. Ever friendly, helpful and the park and fly is a wonderful deal. Karen even washed our car for us last trip! The rooms are very comfortable, there are food outlets within a couple of minutes walk.
I have stayed at Vikki's motel it is great she doesn't make u put down money & if you cancel on the day you don't have to pay that day off. Vikki will help you out in anyway possible. She has very friendly dogs I would recommend this place to any interstate person/s or international person/s 5/5 stars
Spent a night there, Karen was so helpful from the minute I spoke to her over the phone. She organized a Pizza and advised everything I need to be aware of before getting to hotel. No one will give you such a personnel service. Rooms are clean, well maintained, you get everything you need. At the end she went to drop me off to the Airport, free ride YAY!
Had an overnight stay here. Room is clean and well maintained. Bed was comfy and had a good sleep. The owner was very friendly and had many good recommendedations. I am a light sleeper so I did get woken up by the planes in the morning. Should of guessed with the proximity tho. Free biscuits were cool
Clean, comfortable and great location to airport parking for an early morning flight. They do also offer stay and park option (which I didn't find out until we arrived). Would definitely recommend for overnight stop and even a for a few days as not too far from the ocean, restaurants & shops.
A great room for two, with a couch, padded chairs and table, basic kitchen utensils and plates, microwave, and wifi. A well-arranged room made this stay enjoyable. Friendly, informative hosts. Nearby Seagulls for buffet dinner was well worth it. Just off the highway near the airport and away from the busy city centre made this a great location, worthy of Best Western.
Room was on the small side, but fine for 2. It was well equipped, very clean and comfortable. The bed was fabulous, very comfortable. The real gem at this motel is Karen the host. She was helpful and friendly when we booked the room, and was extremely helpful when we arrived and booked in. She gave advise about local restaurants and tips about getting around the area. Really appreciated.
This motel is great, i stayed for business but I would also stay with the family if traveling in the area. the rooms are good and the beds are what you would find in a 4 or 5 star motel. Great value with great hosts.
From the very first minute that I spoke with Karen to enquire about a vacancy at short notice she were extremely helpful and very personable. Following up with me and ensuring I got a ground floor room was awesome. The motel was clean, secure and comfortable. Thankyou again I'll be sure to recommend your motel!!
My friend and I stayed here for the weekend and we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room, its cleanliness and its facilities. Karen, the hostess, provided us with bus timetables and any information we asked for. She even took us to the airport on the day of our departure. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
This is a nice motel with nice clean comfortable room. The people are very friendly and helpful. We will be back next time we are in Tweed Heads / Coolangatta. We highly recommend this motel. Thank you
