About Us

Econo Lodge City Star’s fantastic Kangaroo Point location close to The Gabba, and many other nearby attractions, makes it a convenient choice for those seeking accommodation in Brisbane. As well as comfortable, affordable rooms, we have a range of guest facilities including a pool, guest laundry, guest kitchen, internet kiosk and complimentary car park. Our Tour Desk provides travel advice and guests can book airport transfers or tickets to Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast attractions.

Econo Lodge City Star Brisbane is proud to be 100% Australian family owned and operated. The motel was built in the late 1980s by the Godwin family and was named the A1 Motel. It was taken over by the present owner in 2005 and was renamed the City Star Motor Inn. In 2009 a major refurbishment was completed including:

  • All new windows and glass
  • All new bathrooms tiles and fittings
  • All new air-conditioners
  • New furniture, carpet, curtains and soft furnishings
  • New LCD TVs
  • New electronic locks installed for better security
  • New reception areas
  • An update of the conference room
  • All rooms given internet access
  • Swimming pool revamp

Guest feedback has been, and continues to be, an important factor in the improvements we make to our services and amenities. The latest upgrade has been the luxurious King Koil dream beds in the Executive Rooms.

In 2010, the present owner joined forces with the Choice Hotels Australasia and it became known as the Econo Lodge City Star Brisbane. Since then we have won the Gold Award in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. We also won the Franchisee Award of the Year in 2010 and 2011. The executive management and team of dedicated staff of Econo Lodge are committed to providing you with quality accommodation, excellent services and an unforgettable holiday at an affordable price.

Environmentally Friendly Accommodation

Eco-Friendly STAR Accreditation is a way to identify environmentally friendly accommodation. Econo Lodge City Star Brisbane has earned this accreditation based on our commitment to:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Waste Minimisation & Management
  • Water Minimisation
  • Guest Education

Eco-Friendly STAR Accreditation is tailored specifically for the accommodation industry. The Standards used were developed by AAA Tourism in partnership with GREEN GLOBE – the internationally recognised performance improvement program for the tourism industry. Yet another reason why Econo Lodge is one of the top motels in Brisbane.

We'll become City Star Lodge Brisbane later this month—an exciting move that will see us refresh our brand but keep the warm welcome and great service you expect from us.
