We stayed here for a night to go to Gold Coast Supanova. The location was very convenient to get to the Convention Centre (about a 10 minute walk) and easily walkable to the beach and the restaurants in Broadbeach. The managers were very friendly -- we had a nice chat and we felt well-looked after. The room seemed to be... More

I agree with all that the favourable other reviewers have said. This motel is clean and very comfortable for the price paid. The location is fine too. Our disappointment was that the air-conditioner blew straight onto our bed and no matter how hard we tried, we could not get the temperature above an uncomfortable chill. Turning it off meant we...

For the price I think this is a great stay. Right opposit Pacific Fair, a par-5 stroll to the beach and two par-5s plus a par-3 stroll to the epicentre of the Gold Coast. The rooms are clean and spacious the bathroom is modern. Parking is easy right off the Gold Coast Hwy in front of the room.

We find right from the start a friendly owner and wife who went beyond the contract. The motel was very clean, located close to shopping centres, casino, draculas, patrolled beach and tram stop. Parking was terrific, right outside our unit door. Thoroughly recommend the facilities, price, and location.

We loved this location as we walked to Pacific Fair, the great restaurants under Peppers, the Oasis shopping centre and the beach. The bus and tram interchange was over the road so it was easy for my hubbie to attend the AFL game. The room had been tastefully renovated and even though the motel is situated beside the highway we... More

I stayed here for an overnight business trip and will definitely stay here again. The room had been beautifully renovated, had all the nice little touches you look for, comfortable bed, very friendly staff/owners, brilliant location and easy off street parking.

Lovely & clean.. A pleasant stay with friendly staff. I'd definitely recommend it to family & friends. Close to the beach & shops & well priced. I needed somewhere to stay in between moving homes and had chosen a motel up the road from the Tropicana. It was dirty and unkept. I'm glad I chose to leave there and stay... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Rooms are refurbished and very comfortable. Short walk to the new light rail and easy 20 minute stroll to the restaurant strip at Broadbeach. We didn't hear any traffic noise despite the motel being on the main road. Would highly recommend

Genuinely impressed with Tropicana Motel, it exceeded all expectations! The room was newly renovated with a massive bathroom and heaps of storage. I usually stay at a high end hotel but Tropicana had all the facilities and service I want at a fraction of the price. It's the best value on the Gold Coast!

This motel is a bit tiered on the outside, but the rooms have been updated with a large flat screen TV as well as microwave, toaster and jug. This motel is across the road from the major bus and tram station where you you can go to either Brisbane or the Gold Coast or to the airport. There are a... More
