The Tropicana is a no-worries-very-fine-short-stay simple burrow. It cries out "Come and enjoy!". We attended for a family wedding and jogged to Surfers each day, swam in the winter sea and found in the Tropicana a recently refurbished room for the cool and sexy journey person. There were no spiders or crocodiles. The Tropicana has a pool, does not do... More

Hello David Thank you for taking the time to review - the only real way we can gauge how we're doing, other than our occupancy figures, are reviews such as yours. Hope we see you again some time Regards Jan More

We had arranged for the room to be left unlocked as we were arriving late,around 9.30. Our plane was delayed and we ended up arriving around midnight. The room was left unlocked as arranged and we were happy to find it clean and well appointed .Not a bad place to stay so we will be back again.

Stayed one night while attending a show at Draculas. This place is fantastic value for money. It is a modern, exceptionally clean motel room plus you get a microwave, toaster, crockery and cutlery. Although it is situated on the highway we had no problems with traffic noise or any other noise. I would definitely recommend this motel to other travellers.

I came down to the Gold Coast for a quick trip during the week and picked this motel because of the reviews and price. I was not disappointed. Rooms have been completely renovated and are very clean. I had a great sleep and there is very minimal road noise. The price was extremely reasonable. I will be back!

Hi Bernie! Many thanks for your kind comments. We're chuffed that we have been able to impress a fellow Inn Keeper! Hopefully we'll get an opportunity to return the compliment. Best wishes for Port Douglas Motel. Stuart & Jan More

We stayed here for one night. It was very clean (I could not find fault and I am fussy) and modern and suited our purposes for a place just to sleep. It has easy walking access to Dracula's and the Casino. It is just a motel room and there is no living area. The only downside is that occupants can... More

The Tropicana Motel is in an excellent position close to Pacific Fair, Casino and the Beach . There are local restaurants. This Motel is perfect for a one night stopover if travelling. It is spotlessly clean and the Management very friendly. The newly refurbished rooms and en suites are well appointed. There is a retractable clothes line in the shower,... More

Firstly we got a 2 bedroom apartment, thats it though, there are two bedrooms and nothing else. We didn't find this too bad though, but if you want to spend any time in the apartment then this would be annoying as there is nowhere to hang out except beds. If you knew this in advance then this would be okay.... More

This is the response we have made to this revue. The guest was obviously looking for a 'cheap' apartment - we are a Motel, not Apartments. We feel it unfair that a revue such as his sits for all time in the public view with us having no right of (public) reply. So this is our reply to him. To... More
