Karen, the manager was helpful and welcoming. Even gave me a kiss goodbye after she drove me to the airport. The motel was clean and quiet away from the noise of the gold coast. A good place to rest up in between flights.

Good clean accomodation at Tweed Heads, staff were very friendly and helpful. Even though it is near Coolangatta airport there is a curfew from 10pm so doesn't with sleep. Nearby Seagulls club is okay for basic meal.

Had a fantastic stay at this best western for my early morning flight from the gold coast airport. The manager is very good with guests and made us feel very welcomed. The rooms are well equipped and very clean. Some people are complaining about airport noise but I didn't find it a issue, very good location from the airport and... More

You have Motels where you check in and just want to spend your night and get going at the crack of the dawn. But then there are some where you are pleasantly surprised. This Motel is definitely in the later category! We found this Motel as our flight out of Gold Coast Airport was cancelled due to Cyclone Marcia. The... More

My partner and I stayed friday 6th-sunday 8th March. We booked a standard queen room on booking.com Check in was very fast and friendly on friday afternoon. Our room was upstairs and was very clean. The only slight negative about this motel is how narrow the balcony is upstairs with tables and chairs outside. Its very awkward to walk along... More

Im away from home 150++ nights a year and a comfortable room and bed is very very important. I can highly recommend this hotel for comfort, its also very central to the beach, shops, restaurants and main roads

Stayed here for a night before catching the flight out of Gold Coast. Should have just stayed here for the whole trip. The room was clean, comfortable, and roomy. The location was just outside of Gold Coast, which is convenient enough. The staff was friendly and accommodating as well.

Being sometimes hard to find great service in smaller Australian hotels, it was very pleasant to stay at this hotel. Right from the initial phone call Karen and Steve were most helpful and even arranged free transport to take me to the airport. Lovely refurbished room, great values for money. As a business traveler, I will most certainly be back.

Solo traveller doing a road trip. Booked a queen bed and it was quite roomy and luxurious for the $110 I paid. I liked that they had Foxtel/Austar so I could watch the cricket. Bed was great, shower was good and there is covered parking (although if it is bucketing with rain it doesn't help). If your stuck with where... More

We booked at last minute looking for an overnight stay on a conference visit. We were pleasantly surprised and the ratings were accurate. The room was spacious and tidy with plenty of places to plug in phones and pads to charge. WI FI was free and good. The bed was great and we slept very well. The high level of... More
