Nice, small and well priced. Great location, close to everything and on the main road so easy to navigate around. Only downside to this is the slight traffic noise but not unbearable Of the street parking a bit cramped might be difficult for a large car if there are multiple cars parked in there The lady there was lovely and...

We stopped here as it was small, it was very clean, the one staff member was really lovely, Rooms were cheap, but not tacky. The rooms were spacious, walking distance to the beach, shops, pubs. Tucked away between a couple of big buildings on the main Gold Coast Highway, we didn't hear a thing. Totally recommend it...

Great location right in the middle of the Gold Coast on the main road. The price is good, the rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a no frills place to sleep, this is a good choice.

I needed an inexpensive place to stay for a night on the Gold Coast. Was so impressed by this place. The reality was nicer than in the photos. Very welcoming proprietors. Close to shops and restaurants. Close to the beach. Tastefully furnished and decorated. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Clean. In all, great value for money. Would definitely stay there again.

Arrived at this motel expecting something average but was surprised to find such an amazing place. For a very decent price I got a clean, spacious room with bathroom, TV, A/C, and fridge. The motel has a nice little pool area and the owner is really friendly and took care of all my needs & requests. I was meant to... More

Simple, clean accommodation just a 5 minute walk to Mermaid Beach and a short drive into Surfer's Paradise. The pool was well maintained and the owner was very friendly. Bed was comfy and there was an air conditioner and a fan. Good value for money and ideal for a short stay.

Title says it all. Beds uncomfortable. Small cockroaches infestation! Ugh! Mouldy grout in shower stall. And you are expected to empty your own rubbish bins and clean all the dishes! But on a positive side, the owner is friendly.

This motel is situated on the Gold Coast Highway and very close to both the beach and a wide variety of cafes and restaurants. The room was basic but comfortable with the added advantage of a small kitchenette. The motel is only small (an advantage) and the owners the most welcoming and helpful I have had the pleasure to meet... More

The motel was a mix between a motel and an apartment facility. We had a kitchen in the room but almost no service - we needed to go to the reception go get clean towels. Other than that the place was nice and the woman at the reception was very friendly and helpful. One problem with the place is parking... More
