The rooms were disgusting, there were bed lice or some kind of lice in the rooms as we all broke out in rashes and were itchy. When we went and told the reception they told us it was mosquitos and midges, it wasn't. There were holes in the walls and the room smelt really bad. Not a good place to... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Great value with an excellent location on the Tweed. Room was clean and very comfortable beds. Value for money and walking distance to local restaurants. The perfect weary traveller spot.

This was without a doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived the owner was rude and confrontational. First he claimed that we were not booked (we were and had printed confirmation). He then told us we could only stay if we paid then and there for a larger room. We kept trying to... More

We stayed the night at this motel before returning home. Early check in was good. A nice swimming pool to sit beside. Bed was comfortable, good TV reception. Couch needed updating it swallowed people. If you are a non smoker would recommend getting a room away from reception as the owner/manager sits outside for a smoke and it tends to... More

We were only staying one night in Tweed Heads and went to this Motel, all along the road were advertising the same price of $75.00 per night. We booked in, went to the room and went to use the bathroom and all I could smell was septic tank smell. Went to the shop and got some deodorizer, sprayed it, went... More

We weren't able to extend our stay at the hotel we were staying at (City Lights Motel) so decided to pop next door to see if Calico Court had a room. They did! We had wished we had stayed at the Calico Court the whole trip! The quality of the two places was the same but Calico Court has a... More

This is my second visit to Australia and it is an absolutely beautiful Country! I am amazed at how friendly the people are, always greeting. This Calico Court Motel though, is an exception. It does not represent the country at all. If your an asian, avoid the place like the plague. He will assume you are only here because you... More

So my work on the GC has run long so I had to find another bed for the night, on entering the reception a rather rotund woman shuffled out of a back room to ask me what I wanted, when I stated I would like a room for the night I was met with an abrupt 'For how many!' just... More
