We stayed here for one night over a weekend in October 2014. Booked online and got a reasonable deal. Check-in was quick and easy, the front of house staff didn't seem very enthusiastic and did not greet me as I arrived, but none the less, check in was fast and easy. We had a room on the 7th floor which... More

Had a beautiful view of the beach and was only a short walk to cavill ave, the hotel is definettly a little out dated! But my room really wasn't... More

Fridge did not work and they had milk in it. The air conditioning did not work and the room became quite stuffy during the... More

I don't fully comprehend businesses that despite their competitive advantages (ie. location etc), do not put more efforts into their services and customer service to deliver the most value. International Beach Resort unfortunately fits into this category. Upon checking in, the receptionist did not offer a smile and made us feel like we were intruding her break time. The lift,... More

This hotel is close to everywhere; city centre and the beach. the price i got for 4 nights only $500 and i share with 2 of my friends; it was bargain. The apartment is clean and big. if i went to Gold Coast again will surely go back.

From the reviews on this site, (which I checked after I had booked the room) had all stated that this was the worst place that they had ever stayed at, I would definitely disagree with that. I didn't expect anything flash with how cheap the room was, (twin room for two adults) but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was... More

The accommodation is very basic and dated, needs upgrading with paint/ new mattresses / patio furniture and the hallways could do with new carpets to make it more friendly and welcoming, even just a bit of artwork to brighten the place up... But the views that we had for a two bedroomed apartment were great one of the river side... More
