I have a large (by modern standards) family and the hotel staff were exceptionally helpful accommodating us. The service was excellent. The hotel is in a very good location - five minutes' walk from the Kangaroo Point cliff path, a few minutes more and you're at the Cliffs Cafe. Five minutes' walk south and you're at the Gabba (sports stadium),...

Don't compare with a 5-star hotel but if I rate it as a 3.5 star hotel, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed staying here. For the price you pay, it is definitely valued for money.

The Econolodge is on the Kangaroo Pt and so well situated for the city, South Bank and the trendy areas arounf Fortitude Valley. The building is old - 1970s appearance - and, altho the rooms have been renovated they still have that 1970s feel. But they are good sized and the beds are comfortable.

Pleasant staff but facilities were only moderately clean. You can hear EVERYTHING that goes on in the motel as rooms aren't designed to prevent outside noise which is extremely annoying. Not a family-friendly establishment... only recommend for one night stays max!
