I really thought it was abandoned.....I have never seen anything like it......only wish I could forget the smell! The mail order bride who barely spoke English said "get out while I cover smell with spray"..... Bedspreads were threadbare, bar fridge was from before electricity was invented and falling apart, Looked like something to be rented 'by the hour', no milk,... More

Terrible manager, disgusting facilities, rooms unhygienic. We stayed here 24/01/2015 room number 5. We checked in last minute due to car troubles, we paid for a room and got the one next to the managers office. During our time there a friend that lived close by stopped by to help fix the car as we were travelling back to Sydney... More

This motel should be cheaper than what they charge. Very poor in every regard. No milk provided for tea and coffee, I had to ask for batteries for the tv remote (which I didn't get), door did not lock properly and everything was very run down. The biggest turn off was the broken smoke alarms! I mentioned this at the... More

Lets begin with the obvious. If you loved 1985 then you will love the decor of the rooms. I had forgotten the joy of getting up out of bed to turn the tv on or off (and waiting a moment for the tube to warm up in it). I was unable to park in the space allocated to my room... More

Spent 3 nights which were enjoyable. Rooms were much larger than many 4 star hotels in Melbourne & Adelaide and more economical. Guests were friendly as was Elizabeth, mother of the owner, who could not do enough for us. Place was clean & tidy. Cannot understand complaint about water flooding unit unless the guest deliberately plugged the sink or shower... More

We stayed here for a week and found the owners very hospitable. The young man told us all the good places to go around Gold Coast, and the nice old lady told us was very very helpful, it was cold she happily offered us anything we needed. The location is perfect only 2 blocks away from the beach, and a... More

price was really cheap for a weeks stay compared to other hotels in the area, bus stop right outside, had a pool but the fence was locked and the pool was dirty, room was small but tidy, not really suitable for a weeks stay as it didnt have kitchen facilities but for 1-2 nights stay good value but would have...
