We stayed 2 nights and that was enough, It was so noisy and very run down. The bathroom door wouldn't close properly and when it did it would get stuck, the taps kept leaking and the shower head drizzled. The pool was clean but the spa looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while.

A one night stay turned into the worst sleep ever. Being located next to the highway made it noisy all night. The bed mattress was extremely old and you could feel the springs digging into your body. Very uncomfortable! The bathroom had mould on the ceiling, shower tiles and even the shower curtain. The towel rail was rusty. The shower... More

Owner (Patricia) insisted on charging my cc for the "holding fee". My card hadn't been activated and I had to ring the bank, I also forgotten my PIN (at this point in time she said "I haven't got time for this") so she had to do it manually & charged me a $2 fee for it. She was very abrupt... More

Patricia the owner of the motel was friendly and helpful. The only thing we did not like was the entrance of parking was narrow so parking was a bit difficult. Overall a pleasant motel to... More

Stayed on a (too) brief visit to the area. The room was clean and conveniently located to dining, shopping and beaching. We were able to walk to nice restaurants, a bottle store, and a dairy (convenience store).

If you are after a comfortable bed and a quiet location, the Camden Motor Inn would suit your needs. Located close to shops, cafes and bus stop this small block of units is not far from the beautiful Mermaid Beach. The manager is friendly and made us feel very welcome. Would be happy to stay again in the future.

This motor inn is in such a great spot. The room was spotless and the beds comfortable. Better than your average motor in. Staff also vey friendly. I wouldn't bother spending a fortune on a Gold Coast resort when you can get this kind of value. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here based on the reviews - we weren't disappointed! Easy to find and although a small property, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Wifi is of good strength as we watch a lot of Movies on the internet. The room is clean and tidy. The hotel is getting a bit, but the staff make sure the rooms were... More
