This was one of the cheapest rooms I could find in Brisbane (though not cheap per se). It is quite out of the way (which I did know) but perhaps a bit further than one might think (though it is close to a train station). The biggest problem I had was the room I was given which was shocking. There are two parts to this hotel -- a 'new' part which appears to be of average motel quality and an 'old' part right over the bar/restaurant where I was put. That room was definitely the quality of a long-term indigent stay place, and indeed there were definitely some long-term tenants there in adjoining rooms. Room was dingy, lighting was poor (from a ceiling lamp) 'house rules' were posted in the room (things like no drug and alcohol use), bed was uncomfortable, and there was no cross-ventilation at all -- and it was sweltering in the room. The ceiling fan worked but was essentially useless. To his credit the night manager was apologetic in tone and when I went to ask to have another fan, he got me one. Noise from the pub below was audible as were the conversations of nearby tenants (though to be fair not loud, just impossible not to hear). Room was clean at least. But this is not a facility (the old part that is) that should be rented out to standard leisure (or, in my case, business) travelers, I would say at any price. The hotel description is not clear about the two standards of accommodation. If you do get a room here make sure you know in advance which part of the place you will be put in.
