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

Stayed for 2 nights as a stopover on the way to Bribie Island. Disappointed room not ready at appointed check in time after long hot drive. Managers very nice and friendly. Room dark and small. Very basically equipped with jug and fridge. Out of the hustle and bustle of Surfers but short drive only to all attractions of Gold Coast.... More

This is a great place to stay. When we arrived at 6pm Billy greeted me with excellent service. He was so friendly and asked if we needed anything just ask. The room was great for 2 adults and 2 kids. Great value $120 a night. Could not have asked for better service. Thanks Billy. The only thing is the curtain... More

We arrived here late on a very rainy night after checking out of a filthy motel in Palm Beach. The gentleman was very helpful late at night - The room was average and the vents in the bathroom need a good clean as do the carpets - overall good place for a stopover. Cheers

Positive: Mermaid Beach is a nice Gold Coast location for a quieter holiday, being a little out of the main action but still a short bus ride or slightly longer walk to Broad Beach of Surfers. This motel is about five minutes walk from any shops or eating places, but these include convenience stores, several restaurants and bars. For groceries... More
