We have stayed in this motel twice in the past two weeks. Had to go into Greenslopes Hospital for early surgery yesterday and stayed here the night before in order to get to the hospital by 6am.

It's a basic hotel. From outside it doesn't look impressive at all. But it was such a pleasant surprise. All the hotel staff are extremely helpful and nice. They'll try their best to make your stay very comfortable from the very moment you enter the hotel. Location of the hotel is very nice. It's just a short walking from the... More

Clean but just too noisy. Some rough characters staying here. Service is good and they try to be helpful. But they don't seem to have control over the surroundings as with the noise and drinking outside. Also, wake up call was at wrong time, could have missed my flight.
