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

Wasn't to keen at staying here but work paid for it so had no choice. How wrong was I! The room I stayed in was exactly how I said on the title of my review. Service was great. Never judge a book by its cover. Only negative is no right turn but that's easy fixed by referring to your GPS.... More

The service and the room were OK though there wasn't a kitchenette. It's not good to have the "non refundable" policy because there are always unexpected things to happen in life. Worst of all, the manager was so rude and had a sense of discrimination. I've never met such an manager using swear words and offensive words to clients. Anyway,... More
