Have a lok at the Oaks group.

Casino Towers is a popular choice, also Oaks on Charlotte or perhaps Oaks Festival Towers. Just a note that you may have trouble with 4 in a one bedroom room and it will cost more for a 2 bedroom.

Hi,

Are you arriving by air, if so what time. In other words do you have too, or do you want too stay in the Brisbane CBD. If you are flying in and arrive early enough, would you not pick up a car at the airport and go straight to the Sunshine Coast??

Let us know when you are arriving.

Safe travels - Robert

It's pretty difficult to find a cbd or close to the airport hotel in that price range for a family of 4 for an overnight stay. I looked fairly extensively for my trip last month, but no real luck unless you go somewhere in the suburbs - which then involves an expensive taxi trip. Some hotels do allow kids to stay free in existing bedding, eg the novotel, so may be worth checking those. As Robert says it may be easier to head straight to the sunshine coast - it's quite straightforward from the airport.

We often stay at Raceways Motel and find it to be always clean, friendly, close enough to the airport as well as eateries on Racecourse Road. Lots of nice little touches added to the rooms and they do a top breakfast as well :)

Brisbane continues to have the highest occupancy rates in the country and this sadly drives up prices. Rooms are certainly available but budget will be an issue. The following are all popular with families and well located but will set you back about $200 per night for 4

Thanks for all your advice and help. we are arriving on a tuesday afternoon by air, but not booked in to our resort on the sunshine coast til after 2pm on the wednesday so thought it may be nice to take a quick look around brisbane and then get a hire car the next day to sunshine coast. i had already booked accomodation, then flights worked out cheaper going the day before, could probably just take a extra night at the sunshine coast, but would like to take a look around at brisbane. will look in to the places suggested. thanks again

Hi bab,

Like the OP I have trawled the pages of accommodation, you won't get anything in the CBD for 4 with the $'s you want to pay. You can get some outer supburb accommodtion but that would involve taxi's and bus/train fares. By the time you add these costs and the inconvenience you might as well pay the extra for a CBD accommodation.
