My husband stayed here for the working week when he was working close by in November. The room was really clean, well appointed - it had everything needed to prepare a meal, which makes life easy when working long hours. The room was very comfortable, great sleep quality. We would recommend this hotel and stay again.

We usually stay here once a year and the service and rooms are always top notch. They really look after their customers to make sure you are comfortable. The beds are super comfy to the point where i asked what brand it was. See you again next year!

This is a modern type motel as it's been refurbished. It's clean, comfortable and well maintained Good rate after booking only upon arrival in Tweed Heads. Continental breakfast for a little extra delivered to room. Out of the hustle of Tweed itself so very quiet after dark. Owner and staff delightful. Thank you for looking after me!

The rooms are so clean and management so willing to ensure your stay is perfect. No noise from the Kennedy Drive and position is so central. A plug for Ned Kelly's Pizza, just up the road. So tasteful and fresh. Both highly recommended.

Brilliant hotel, clean and friendly We were on a camping holiday towing our van and wanted accomodation that had room for it off the road overnight. Confirmed they did and arrived to find a large area available. Nice room upstairs with a comfy bed, thick towels, coffee and biscuits provided. Will return

We wanted to stay close to the Coolongatta Golf Club for a combined family reunion and Birthday. Checked out other motels in the area and decided on the Best Western Kennedy Drive Motel.
