What a find. Clean, quiet, easy to find & continental breakfast included. You won't go hungry. Beds are very comfortable, we had a king in a ground floor room. The managers are very accommodating & will assist in any way. Taxis are easy to book & about a 15 min journey to the airport or take the shuttle bus. If...

We were joining a cruise from Portside and selected this motel as it was well rated and close to the Cruise Terminal. We were allocated a upstairs room which required carrying out luggage up the stairs. Lucky for me a staff member came to my assistance.

I booked a room for 3 adults to stay for a night to catch a connecting international flight. I was impressed by the room's cleanliness and found the bed cormfortable. The location was very quiet and Doomben railway station across the road. Restuarants weren't too far away but required a decent walk of 20 minutes plus. There were no beers...

If you arrive at this place after 8:00 in the evening the reception is closed. You have to pick up a phone and talk with someone who wants your credit card first to secure the room which is a little uncomfortable not knowing who you are talking with! The room had a very strong cleaner smell that gave me a...

Week 1 ok, Week 2 OMG Air-conditioners rather old and not very good. Owner was great but his male staffer berated the customer publicly for asking the previous week to get batteries for TV & aircon and called the customer a winger. Staff probably need customer training.

Thank you for your review Our air conditioners have been all recently checked within the last 2 weeks and are working well. I checked the room immediately after talking with you on the phone.

We recently had an overnight stay at Best Western 85 to be able to get to the airport for an early flight, when arriving at the accommodation receptionist was helpful & pleasant but once we got to the room that's where it started to go downhill.

Thank you for your review and comments. Sorry that we didn't meet your expectations with your recent stay with us. With the thousands of travellers and guests that visit our motel each year, there is only a small amount of guests who have commented negatively on our cleaner and sanitiser fragrance.
