Runaway Bay Motor Inn is a reasonably large two storey motel with a pool and lots of parking. We had a unit on the top floor (number 40) with a main room, a small kitchen and a bathroom. The main room had a queen bed, sofa bed, TV, and desk. The kitchen had a small table, small fridge, kettle, toaster... More

Yeah, it's on the Oxley Drive-- not quite in the middle of nowhere, but not exactly in a prime location. The big Habourtown mall is 2 mins drive and there are plenty of other shopping centers close by. Dreamworld is about 20 mins north, the good beaches about the same distance south. There's no noise in the place at all.... More

Our family stayed on New Years Eve and granted we only stayed one night, but it was enjoyable because it had everything it said it had (air-con was included), reception was quick, close to two shopping places - had lunch at the Mandarin Inn which was awesome, bought dvds at Blockbuster Video, used the internet at the laundromat on Lae...

I visit the Gold Coast every 4-6wks visiting elderly relatives and often stay at the Runaway Bay Motor Inn. Excellent accommodation and location, good restaurant and food, friendly staff who can't do enough for you. Often I have to change my dates unexpectedly due to family reasons and they are always helpful and obliging. Close to Harbour Town shops and... More

Stayed at Runaway Bay Motor Inn for a sporing event in late April. The room was a reasonable size and included a kitchen (microwave only) with tea and coffee making facilities and a toaster. The room was well lit and had an air con unit and a fan. The room was serviced daily, but we still found ants in the... More

The Runaway Bay Motor Inn was a very clean and well appointed hotel with all that we needed for us and our two children. The rooms were reasonably roomy and had a very nice little kitchenette (with table and chairs) that enabled you to store your own food and drinks for meals such as breakfast which is always handy with...

This motel is a bit off the beaten track as far as Gold Coast Motels go but it is a quality property and it is close to major shopping precincts and there are a number of restaurants and fast food outlets nearby. The property has a modern fresh look about it even though it is probably 20 or more years... More

My Husband and I spent one night here at the end of a two week sales trip starting in Cairns and ending in Runaway Bay.. We found our room towards the back of the complex to be quiet. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. We had a disabled bathroom which was well equipped and spacious. The kitchen... More

We spent 3 nights at this motel and found it convenient for our purposes. The rooms are a little tired in the decor department as are the bed covers. The ensuite bathroom was more tired than the rest, the shower doors have very narrow opening via sliding glass doors and large people will have a squeeze to get in the... More
