Was one of the cheapest place close to cbd with free parking but is not value for money. Room was clearly only dusted and not cleaned. The clauset had a deeply moldy smell and the bathroom was full of ants. There was still a dirty towel from previous guest. Sheets on bed were clean but furniture and fitting looked old...

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

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

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

An inexpensive establishment in a city where accommodation can get pricey. It is on busy Gladstone Road but is on the high side of the street and set back, so noise is not an issue. It is an older motel: rooms are spacious and very clean. The managers are quite chatty and very helpful There is a stop for buses...

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