Arrived at the hotel with both lifts not working and no way to get to our room (1 BR apartment with air-conditioning only in the living room). We were told that the lifts would “hopefully” be working by late afternoon. The only saving grace was that the hotel is right across the beach and a 5 – 10 minute walk... More

Was not impressed by the standard of the room. If you want real BUDGET accommodation then this is the place to stay. We only stayed one night and that was enough. The pressure of the shower was a trickle of water, if someone used the cold water at the same time the temperature was ice cold, and if the toilet... More

I love this hotel! It's a little dated (the decor) but the location is perfect! Right on the beach, and only a few blocks to surfers paradise main cbd. It also offers free parking! The hotel staff are friendly and the rooms are spacious. This is our first choice when on the Gold Coast.... And we always ask for the... More

Old hotel, needs updating desperately, not the worst I've stayed in but wouldn't stay there again. Best things about it were the location opposite the beach and close to shops and restaurants and the airconditioning worked well. We had a beachfront room with a balcony. The beds were awful, the lounge was old and grubby. There was a kitchen with... More

Absolutely the worst place ever. On arrival only one lift working and the other taking 50 minutes of going up and down continuously before getting to our room. It even stopped completely at one stage. Maintenance was with us and said it's possible that the whole hotel may have to close if lift didn't start back up. Not what you... More

We booked online and missed the reviews-until after I booked!! I have mixed opinions about the hotel and service. The service was always friendly and helpful, wasn't too keen on the $200 deposit. A bit excessive I thought? The room was nothing like we imagined on the pictures and it was very unclean. The curtains were filthy, the chairs stained... More

Before booking International Beach Resort, I read a lot of reviews about it. Many people offered negative ones. But I didn't need to stayed at a luxuries hotel and I just hoped the hotel would be in a convenience area, I made up my mind to book International Beach Resort for two nights. Before starting my journey, I asked the... More

If you like staying in a hotel that was built 100 years ago that is literally falling to pieces, here is the place to be. Only one lift operational (servicing 22 floors, max 6 persons) and the one that was working was in poor shape. Our lovely neighbours thought it would be a great idea to throw a party in... More

Great location, right opposite the beach at Surfers. The rooms are excellent for the rate paid. This is the best hotel in the location and the rate is unbelievable! The hotel staff are happy to call cabs, provide printed directions, call and book reservations, anything you require. The hot tub was amazing at night and the pool so clean and... More
