What a fab find! Super friendly and helpful staff. Very Peaceful, beautifully maintained pool area. Very cute pool. Breakkie was excellent, best poached eggs. Just short walk to food markets and local cafes and shops. I'd go back!

Another very enjoyable night spent at a great motel. Easy access, quiet location and very close to the Portside Wharf. Great hosts made our stay more enjoyable. The rooms are well appointed and clean. Our first choice when needing accommodation for either the airport or port.

What a fantastic place! Very comfortable, clean and great facilities. The management were beyond fantastic, helping us by providing hoses for us after we came back to the motel after competing in Miss Muddy, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms had everything you would ever need, including the special touch of fresh cold milk every morning and our rooms... More

Another very comfortable stay at the Raceways Motel. Ideally located in a quiet street and only a short walk to the wonderful Restaurants Hamilton has to offer. Greg and Jan are the wonderful hosts who run this great Motel where the rooms are always spotless. This is always our preferred accommodation when visiting Brisbane.

We keep coming back here whenever staying in Brisbane. Good hearty family run motel. Very clean. Dated rooms but good size, large TV and very well equipped with crockery/cutlery. Comfy beds, quiet location close to airport, cruise terminal and citycat stop.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The location is fantastic - close to the airport, cruise terminal, racecourses and restaurant strip. We only had a one night stay here, but would be more than happy to stay on our next trip to Brisbane. The rooms are slightly dated, but very comfortable, and all we needed for our stay.

I stayed at Raceways after arriving at the airport on the last flight. The motel is a short drive from the airport and the owners were not phased by my late arrival.

I personally have only stayed here while having to do an overnight stay over between flights. I have stayed here twice but my family always chooses to stay at Raceways (they travel more then me) I believe it's the managers or owners that I dealt with the last time and the gentlemen was very helpful and kind as we were...

Having lived in the area for fifteen years, I have recommended Raceways Motel to several of my interstate visitors. Last weekend I had the chance to stay there myself. This property is good honest motel style accommodation with many extra touches to make for an enjoyable stay. The rooms are spotlessly clean with a quiet location and comfortable beds making...

Greeted with a friendly reception, especially from Oscar (the dog). The room was ready for us early which we really appreciated. My mother and I were staying for one night before we flew out and it had everything we needed; tv, comfy beds, fridge, microwave, close to a multitude of restaurants/takeaways up the road and about 10 mins from the...
