When we arrived for one night overstay, we didn't expect much for the prize we payed. And we were most surprised: the room was neat and clean, the tenant was warmly welcoming us and was very helpful. We could do our laundry easily. Although near the main street, it was calm. And to the beach only a few steps. We... More

Friendly reception (family-run business), free parking space, most importantly excellent location of being next to Night Owl/eateries and only 5 mins walk to the Mermaid beach. The bed was so comfy that we missed our check-out time. What more can i say? ;)

I was aboslutely pleased with the fact that after staying there for 5 nights, I didnt spot a single bug! The place is so clean, owner lady is lovely to talk to, and the place is near lots of bus stops which have the surfside bus lines. But the bus stop is on the other side of the motorway so... More

It was a great little find. Close to beach and shops. Patricia was very friendly. Perfect find for our one night requirement. The room was spacey and had a great aircon! There is a pool but we didn't get a chance to use it. The local bus dropped us off in front from the airport saving us money!

I stayed here over the New Year period and it was a great place to stay. Very clean and comfortable room with air conditioning. The new owner Patricia was friendly and very helpful. The beach is only a block away and it was easy to walk to, the local shops are close and have lots to offer. The pool and... More

Very old motel on the corner of Gold Coast Highway and Tambourine Street. Surprisingly very little road noise being on a highway. Parking available which we used but imagine it could get a bit crowded if the motel was busy. The units are very old but clean and the rooms are big. They could be given a makeover but I... More

Stayed at this motel for 5 days whilst at a conference at the Gold Coast. The rooms were of a good size and very clean. My room was serviced each day. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this property. Very close to takeaway food outlets just across the street. & only a short walk to the beach.

We stayed here for a night when we made a trip down from Brisbane for Supernova 2013. The room was clean and well presented, with tea and coffee making facilities, microwave, fridge with softdrinks, water etc for purchase. Short walk down the street to the beach. Lovely pool and spa. We found the location to take-aways, restaurants and convenience store,... More
