The motel is really close to the beach and the main things. By car is a 15 min to everything. If you don't need too much comfort or just staying for the night, you are going to be very satisfied with the bedroom. If i come back there, someday, i would definitely stay there again.

The room had a couch in it,which is rare & the bed was comfortable.The reception staff seemed friendly & I came later,which despite they aern't really 24/7 check-in,they told me that was fine to accommodate to my schedule.The pool's an added bonus & it's fairly quiet constantly,despite being located on the Gold Coast highway.

It was one of the cheapest hotels i could find so i wasn't going to get anything to fancy. The staff where polite and friendly, i had to change rooms because they put me in the wrong room which i didn't mind. The hotel was old and slightly run down but did the job for one night.

Lovely little motel just outside the hustle and bustle of Gold Coast's surfers paradise. Great value and the rooms are all en suite. The staff are nice and helpful and the bus into town is literally on the doorstep. You can try and walk to surfers but I wouldn't suggest it as it was a bit of a trek! All... More

Can’t disagree with all the positive comments preceding; clean cheap etc. Perfect for what we wanted, attending a friend’s birthday party and this was within walking distance. Big positives for motel of this cost was free Wi-Fi and a number of free Foxtel channels. However a few words of caution, whilst clean and tidy a number of items were in... More
