I was at the Gold Coast for a business seminar & everything was prepared for me, clean accommodation, parking & very helpful friendly staff. Will certainly stay there again the next time I come back. It is not far from the centre or Convention Centre. Lots of places to eat. Can't say how helpful Patricia was in helping me &... More

Clean/Tidy room with easy access to highway,beach,food choices. Great array of choices for takeaways straight across road as well as a Night Owl store for those early morning starts or last minute cravings. Patrica the owner was very friendly and approachable and only to happy to help with any queries. Great bang for your buck

Had a great stay at Camden Motor Inn on the Gold Coast. Patricia, the owner, was very welcoming and friendly. The room was immaculate and the motel was only a short walk from beautiful Mermaid Beach. Jupiters Casino was just up the road and there were plenty of restaurants handy including one offering a hearty $10 breakkie. Would definitely stay... More

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? ;)

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!
