Airport Clayfield Motel
Ranked #70 of 168 Hotels in Brisbane
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We were looking for a place that was clean, close to the airport and cheap - this motel ticked all boxes! We stayed there one night and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff. They were very helpful and even recommended a nice place to have dinner, which was only a 3 minute walk away. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel and different shops very close by.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone! Excellent value for money!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes the resounding feedback we have received from our clientele since taking over some 3 months ago is that they really enjoy how close the motel is from so many great restaurants, take-aways and cafes. And yes if you want to go the City, South Bank, Gold or Sunshine Coast or anywhere nearby the bus stop and train station is at our front door which makes it super convenient for people especially if they fly into the airport and don't have a car to get around.

Handy location to restaurants and markets. Steve was very helpful, room clean, bed comfy. Was so excited to have a teapot! Can't beat a cuppa from a pot! Bit of road traffic but that's to be expected given the location. I will definitely be back.

I stayed at the Airport Clayfield Motel in July on a whirlwind trip from Melbourne.

I found the motel to not only be amazingly convenient to get to from the airport (particularly helpful after a very delayed flight), but surrounded by city transport links and amenities.

Rooms were clean and comfortable and motel management were not only helpful, but very friendly. They helped me to organise sight-seeing activities and transport - particularly helpful considering I'd not been to Brisbane before.

Highly recommend.

Glad to hear that you found the time to visit some of the attractions of this great city. The tourist information on display in reception is very useful for many of our customers. It only takes a few minutes to help plan someone's site seeing tour. We are only too happy to help out where we can. The bus stop at our front door going to the city and northwards and the Eagle Junction Train Station (main station for the North side with 6 lines) makes visiting Gold Coast, Sunshine coast and anywhere in between very easy.

Stayed here on Thursday 25 July and can't say how pleased we were that there are new owners. Steve was so helpful, carried our bags upstairs and even changed the room we had booked to one that was much quieter. We have stayed here twice before and did think about wether we would again as the previous owners were not so nice, but when I rang to book and Steve answered and he was so polite we decided we would stay again and see if anything had changed. So pleased we did as our room was nice and clean also quiet and we had a lovely meal just around the corner. We will be back....thanks again Steve.

Room Tip: The top floor room we had was very quiet and thank heavens the bathroom window locked. Not as much a...

Thank you for taking the time to give us a good review. As very recent new owners/managers there are a number of areas that we have tried to make improvements in over recent weeks but hopefully now we are getting close to having things how we want it. I note your comment regarding having a quiet room during your stay. As of 2 days ago all the rooms have had acoustic seals (noise reducing) installed on the doors. People have already started to comment on the improvement which is wonderful to hear as this was what we were most concerned about ourselves. We are confident now that anyone will have a great nights sleep :) See you next time. Kind Regards

Aside from being close to the airport, which is great, since I am usually in Brisbane for business, the friendly staff and the tidiness of my room made the stay quite pleasant. Also, public transport is not far, not to mention a wide range of restaurants nearby.
I will definitely be back on my next trip.

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your brief stay with us. Yes a lot of people comment on how convenient it is to be located within 100m of so many fantastic restaurants (approximately 25-30 to choose from) and other great facilities- cafes, bottle shops, Clayfield fresh produce market, pubs, chemist and all night convenience stores. We think we have great location and nothing makes us more pleased than when our guests comment on this and make the most of the location. For my mind there is nothing worse than being cooped up in a motel room with nothing to explore!!

Stayed here for two nights while up from Melbourne for a friends wedding. Great little place with friendly staff and very close to transport (bus and train).Rooms are clean and tidy great value for location. 10min by train to the city helped to get me to the wedding on time. Have booked in for the next wedding in September.
