We stayed here last night. Good if you are just here to sleep/crash for the night. Very simple rooms, no kitchen but has microwave and mini bar fridge. If it's cooler months, bring extra blankets as the ones supplied are only thin. Has air con and small tv. No real complaints but you get what you pay for

Do not stay here if you are going for a dedicated holiday. Its ok as we live not too far but wanted just to stay overnight in the area. Room is quiet and clean. But there were so many things broken. Both side tables had broken legs, chairs had broken back pieces. We paid $89 for a saturday night and... More

The room had dirty stained carpet, mould on the ceilings in bathroom and room, stained towels, no sink to fill kettle so had to... More

I booked this for just one night without checking any reviews. It was relatively cheap but was comfortable, clean & was all we needed. I was surprised when I read some of the poorer reviews. The room could have done with redecorating & some minor repairs but I would recommend it for a low budget option.

We stayed at the Sunshine Beach Resort for one night just so we could be close to the Gold Coast Airport as we were flying out of there the next day. The Resort was adequate, but felt a little tired and in need of some TLC. The towel rail fell down as soon as a hand towel was placed on... More

Yes, it was inexpensive, and I only needed it for one night. Lack of good lighting in stairwell leading to upper rooms - not very good for early leavers or late arrivals. No directions to room in late checkin details. There was a bedside light - but no bulb (and that could be seen quite clearly). Cleaners had not really... More

What you pay for is what you get… Room was ok. Rust and overall poor cleanliness. Limited parking. Firm mattress. Aircon didn't work Good for 1 night stay or passing through. Wouldn't call it a resort at all. Pool looked clean but it was too cold to swim.

Clean, fresh, cheap and friendly. Close to bus stop and Coles. Pretty good overall. I stayed for six nights with my family. The lady at reception was lovely and Helpful especially with bus time tables and other directions. I would stay here again.
