My sister and I stayed here. We were both new GC and had no idea of how to get from A to B etc. Patricia was just amazing. Gave us advice/directions and was extremely helpful. The room was clean and very convenient as close to all amenities. Would definitely recommend this place! Looking forward to heading there again.

Great amenities, very clean room and lovely staff.... Good location if you are wanting to be close to broadbeach and only a stones throw away from the water front...... Definitely recommend staying here.

This motel is situated in a most strategic location! We could walk to the fantastic Mermaid Beach which was just two blocks away or about 8 minutes. The bus stop (route 700) that took us to and from the Surfer's Paradise area is located conveniently close. That same bus can take you south all the way to Coolangatta, Tweed Heads... More

The day before our arrival the motel manager phoned me to advise that she’d be out on Sunday afternoon but would leave a key... More

What a lovely stay at Camden Motor Inn. It is very close to the shops and beach. Great wifi capabilities. Lots of eating places close by. The room was lovely and clean with a microwave and crockery for easy to heat up meals for eating in. The staff are super friendly and very helpful.
