Surf street is a standard motel. Rooms are quite large and good amenities. Parking is available also. Was a little grieved that the payment had been taken from my credit card before my arrival as I wished to pay on a travel credit card and avoid conversion rates. All in all a good place to put your head. Located very... More

The motel is situated right on the main Gold Coast highway, close to shops and has about 10 rooms with single car park in front of each. No double glazing on the windows so I had to sleep with earplugs to block out the continuous traffic noise. $80 per night but they do not service your room unless you pay... More

Stays here during the Easter holidays. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very basic accommodations that had clean and well maintained rooms. The motel is located on the main strip so it is easy access to everything - only a 5 minute drive to the city centre. We paid $75 a night for a 3 night stay the day... More

The room was average. Comfortable queen sized bed with clean sheets. The hotel looks and feels dated, the aircon was the old type (not split system) and was quite noisy. Although the motel is situated on the main highway, it was very quiet. It served our needs for an unplanned overnight stay on the Gold Coast. Walking distance to the... More

I stayed here for one night and it was a last minute booking at a busy time. There was a bit of traffic noise from the highway. The room was well laid out for a motel room and the bed was clean. However the room was old, worn and needed to be cleaned better. The basics had been done but... More

Hotel looks a little dated from the outside but the interior of the rooms are clean and comfortable, with good bedding and mattresses and suprisingly quiet given motel is situated on the highway...

The motel room was small with 2 double beds leaving no room to walk or open a suitcase. The check in info said that you needed to let them know if you were going to arrive after 9pm, we got caught in road works but still arrived at exactly 9pm but by that time they had already charged our card...

We had a two nights at this great motel. The motel rooms were of an older style but quite comfortable and very clean. The owners were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. My father could not climb stairs and this motel suited us nicely as it is on one level. The motel is within walking distance to shops and... More

I accidentally placed this review for the wrong motel - So here I go again. (BTW: The other motel, Surfers City, is rotten). Moving on ... I stayed for about a week and found the on-site owners very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and pleasant although a bit small. Gold Coast bus-stop is right outside. As this motel... More

Me and my boyfriend got a room here after traveling for quite some time and it was fantastic. We were looking for a chill night away from the backpacker lifestyle and got just that. It was super easy to catch a bus (about 10 minutes tops) into the city and yet far enough outside of it to relax and unwind.... More
