The family room worked really well for five of us, there’s plenty of space and good separation with two bedrooms. Nice and clean with modern decor and good amenities. Good location, an easy walk to Portside restaurants and shops, and close to the airport.

Hotel's Favourite
This motel is our regular motel for our stays in Brisbane...in fact we had 3 stays there in August! We had family visiting from NZ and they were very impressed with KSM for their overnight stay. Helen and her team are exceptional - welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms are all renovated and well appointed. They are very comfy, beds are lovely and rooms are always spotlessly clean. Onsite parking is also convenient and easy. A short walk across the road takes you to Portside where we like Lemonish for breakfast and Byblos for dinner. Also a short walk away is Brett's Wharf to catch the CityCat into town. This is definitely our Go-to Motel for our Brisbane visits and we always enjoy our stays there. Highly recommended!

I had visited the Kingsford Smith Motel a few times close to a decade ago, so it was familiar to me. Staying here again on this trip did not disappoint. The room was beautifully refurbished and made for a very pleasant environment. The service was impeccable. Totally reaffirmed that, for me, this is the place to stay when visiting or passing through Brisbane.

Awesome accomodation!!!! We recently stayed here before out flight out of Brisbane. Exceptionally well presented, the motel has recently been renovated, the rooms are modern, immaculate, the beds are amazing, service was outstanding. We were so impressed we booked again for our returning flight. We got a great price by booking directly with the motel and they are lovely to deal with. Congratulations ⭐️

I stayed here only 1 night for business - needing easy access to the airport. This place has everything going for it. Firstly, cheap as. Very reasonable pricing. The hotel has been completely overhauled - everything is brand new - the rooms completely refurbished and so everything is in excellent condition and very clean. The rooms are full of little touches - two shower heads in shower - rainforest and an adjustable shower / massage head. a magnified shaving mirror, a movement floor sensor light for those visits in the middle of the night, a great range of lovely toiletries. The room has all the usual appointments - including USB chargers at the desk, internet connected TV, new comfy beds, adjustable a/c - heating, and the tea coffee had FREE BISCUITS (have not seen this for years!) - a small bottle of FRESH milk in fridge and free lindt balls! I was on Lv 2 at the back of the hotel - so totally quiet - although I overlooked the car park. The following morning I score a free ride to the airport. the only downside is reception closes at 7pm. So when you arrive, you phone a number and am given instructions to open a wall safe to access the room key. The safe is a bit dodgy and doesn't like to open easily. How great is this place! highly recommended - privately owned - please stay here - get the place booked out and help the owners to recover from covid and the cost of the delightful refurbishment.

This Motel is 5 star. Rooms are spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean. Close to restaurants, River Cat, Walk/Cycle way which runs along the river. There is a shuttle service to the new Cruise Terminal. Very friendly. We were made to feel like family. Thank Helen for making everyone feel special.

Okay, I have stayed here twice and both times have been so impressed. Wonderful facilities, quiet, super helpful and friendly hosts. You will not go wrong by staying here. I will stay here again. Be sure to book direct with the motel and avoid Booking.com and others.

Very well maintained motel, located within easy walking access to several eateries. They also offer courtesy bus transfers to Brisbane Airport terminals. Their website states they are within walking distance of the Brisbane cruise terminal however this is outdated as there is a new International Cruise Terminal which is located around 12 kilometres away further down the Brisbane River. Our room was spacious and well presented. Management very friendly as were members of staff we interacted with. If travelling to or through Brisbane the Kingston Smith Motel would be at the top of our preferred places to stay.
