Stayed the weekend with mates at Best Western Airport 85 Ascot Brisbane to attend Stradbroke races (something we have done for 5 years & stayed at this place everytime). The owners could not be more helpful, allowed us early entry, very friendly and willing to accommodate our every needs. They were even helping people by carrying there luggage when leaving. Will definitely the back next year. The motel is idea to attend both Eagle Farm & Doomben (400mtr walk) race tracks.

We stayed here after a late flight into Brisbane. Reception shuts earlier, but they have a safe deposit system to access your keys out of hours. Old room and facilities, near a railway line. Very clean. Pool adjacent to car park. Simple free breakfast for 2 people per room.

Our stay at the Best Western Airport 85 Motel was great. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we required. It was close to the Airport as we were flying out the next morning and the gentleman who looked after us on our arrival was very obliging and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.
