We needed accommodation near Queen Elizabeth Park in Coolangatta for a 3 day event we were exhibiting at. Most venues were booked out. This property was found on-line and we booked for 4 nights. Upon check-in it was a typical old motel which had been renovated. Free WiFi was advertised on their sign and online - however it is a... More

The location of this hotel is good, outside the main Coolangatta built up area just across from the river. It was clean and comfortable and the owner was extremely helpful. Good shower and air con. Good value for money.

motor inn is great for kids, got pool and across from the waterfront. Close to the gold coast attractions but far enough away from the city chaos. Motor inn value for money, good for a short stay with the kids. Clean rooms with air con, the owners were very nice and helpful. I would stay again.Close to everything, free parking... More

We booked two rooms. Reception was very friendly and gave us a free upgrade to keep us away from a family with small noisy children. Good wi-fi was included in the price. Happy to provide extra pillows and sent us to a great pizza restaurant. Rooms were clean and tidy. Cable TV was provided. Affordable motel close to the airport.... More

The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful. The room was what I expected for the price I paid. While the rooms are a bit dated in decor, the beds were comfortable, the shower was hot and let's face it, I was on holiday so I wasn't going to be staying in the room all day. There is tea and coffee... More

The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room quality was about what I would expect from a budget range motel. There was some road noise but nothing particularly troubling. I stayed there for four nights and was quite comfortable. All the facilities I needed were there and functional and the location was pretty good. A comfortable walk to nearby... More

Stayed here two nights on arrival from Asia, positive was the manager was very friendly, negatives... well it is pretty run down, lots of road noise, tiny little television, mildew throughout bathroom, a little bleach would have been appreciated, perhaps even a vacuum as many hairs on the floor and bedding. Free WiFi was a bonus which was appreciated, shame... More

This motel was hard to find as it had changed its name and didn't bother to advertise this on the street sign, or advise people who had booked at the "South Tweed Motor Inn". Fortunately we had the street number so once around the block and then went in to enquire. The room was large, clean and comfortable but we... More
