I stopped by here late one night having ended up in the Gold Coast a night earlier than planned. It looked like an ok place to sleep, so I checked in. It was right across the road from the Pacific Fair shopping centre, and the light rail runs just in front of the motel. There is free parking in the... More

We recently had a weekend at this hotel. The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms adequate and clean, it is very conveniently located to Casino, Pacific Fair and Draculas. We drove in parked and were able to walk to everything we wanted. There is also light rail station across the road which runs up to Surfers, Southport and the... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review. We're sorry you found the traffic a problem, seems some do and some don't. If you come again, ask us about a quiet room, we have some regulars who think some rooms are quieter than others - we haven't slept in all the rooms, but we do live on the... More

We booked into the Tropicana for three nights following our return from Kuala Lumpur to the Gold Coast airport. We had no trouble catching a bus from the airport to close to the motel for a pittance compared to a taxi. The new Cold Coast light rail station at Broadbeach South is quite close to this motel. A patrolled beach... More

Hello Thank you taking the time to review which so helps us in keeping abreast of or customers requirements. Sorry you don't like the twin beds - that is actually the only room we have with twin beds - all others have a queen sized bed, or we have 2 rooms with a queen and a single (obviously bigger rooms)...

We stayed here whilst on business at nearby Pacific Fair. We didn't want to have to drive to the venue after 4 hours driving already and were delighted to find such reasonable accommodation. Also close enough to walk to restaurants and Casino. An added bonus was the new Gold Coast tram across the road -- a great way to hop... More

My wife and I stayed here on a little break down on the Gold Coast. It isn't a luxury hotel, so don't come expecting that, but it's a classic motel and on this basis it's hard to beat. The owners were very friendly on arrival and with a check in from 12 it was great to be able to drop... More

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

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.
