My husband and I spent one night at the Classic Motel, Mermaid beach. The owners/staff are very friendly & accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I was very pleased with the standard of our room, tastefully decorated, spacious & extremely clean. It offered all the amenities we needed. The bed was comfortable and the bed linen smelled so clean &... More

We stayed here after checking out of a filthy apartment in surfers. Owners bent over backwards to fit us in and we are a family of 5. Room was spotlessly clean. Can not thank these lovely people enough for accommodating us as we had no where to go. Thank you!!!

We have stayed here several times and after just being away for a week in other places it was the best and cheapest yet again. We are treated well, the room is greatly presented and clean and they are more than happy to give out the wifi password whether you think you will need it or not :)

I was grateful the motel was on ground level with car parking directly outside the room as I was recovering from an injury. Located 800 metres from the beach, adjacent to a medical centre, pharmacy, newsagent & post office and only a couple of kilometers from the large shopping centre such as Pacific Fair. The room includes Austar , wireless... More

Only stayed one night here as we were flying out the following day. The owners are friendly. The rooms are very nice with a very comfortable bed. The motel is close to heaps of dining options within walking distance.

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...

Manager confirmed booking (verbal). All contact details provided. Friend drives 4 hours arrives at Classic 6pm to be told the room was given away. 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
