Booked in for 3 nights to attend the Bruce Springsteen concert at the BEC. One thing I noticed was the room rate remained the same irrespective of the nearby concert event. Some motels double their rate when there is a show nearby but the Brisbane International's price was very reasonable. The room was quite nice, clean and comfortable. Road noise from Sandgate Rd was not a problem. There is a convenient bus stop right at the front door.
Just a couple of minor things: When checking in I wasn't told what room I was in. The girl at the front desk simply said 'ah it's just down there.' I had to ask another staff member in the car park for directions. Also..the height of the TV was way too low. You couldn't watch whilst laying in bed.
And a tip if you're catching a taxi...make sure you tell the driver you want to go to the Brisbane International MOTEL because if you shorten it and just say Brisbane International - you will be on your way to the airport.
If you are heading to the BEC or to the Northside for any reason - then the Brisbane International is the place to stay.
