Classic motel offers great value for money. Basic, clean motel rooms, free parking and free wi-fi. Helpful staff. Nearby there is a small convenience store (Spar) and few restaurants. Beach is only some 200 metres away from the motel. If you are looking for a cheap and quiet place to stay, this is a great option.

Stayed for two nights at the Classic during the Easter school holidays. It is a very basic hotel and a bit dated but very clean and very comfy beds. It is also very close to the beach and only a short drive to Broadbeach. Overall an excellent stay. Great if you are on a budget.

The motel itself was pretty good. Very cheap, and a decent location. It was also clean, and cozy enough to get home to. We got a noise complaint, when we hardly even talked in our room, which was very uncomfortable. And one of the evenings we came home and our room hadn't been cleaned. Other than that we had a...

Reason...somebody cancelled the booking over the phone...they... More

The Meakins Reasons why Classic Motel is one of the best: 1. Very good location - about 3-5minutes walk to the beach. The location is next to Gold Coast Highway. It is close to cafés, shops, takeaway, restaurants. - you can catch a bus at tambourine bus stop ( bus #777) that takes you all the way to Gold Coast... More

Proprietors Colleen and Tony were friendly and helpful, the room was clean. A no frills budget option without the hassle of staying next to party people who might keep you up at night. A convenient location too! I can't fault this place for the price and I would recommend it to budget travelers who just want to enjoy what this... More

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.
