La Costa motel at Balinga was a one night stopover on my way to Bangkok,the staff were friendly and helpful and took me to the airport next morning. It was very convenient--just across the road from the Gold coast airport and right by the beach,ideal for a stroll on the sand in the evening,very pleased with my choice

Newly renovated and designed, La Costa Motel has everything anyone would want in a Gold Coast airport stopover that includes free shuttle to airport by the friendly owners themselves. If you have some daylight hours, a delightful beach/ boulevard walk is on the doorstep which takes you to the famous Kirra and Coolangatta beaches as well as an array of... More

I found this hotel to be quite refreshing compared to your normal place. It was spacious and clean and had a feel that was more like a home than a motel. You could tell that it was a family run business. Great attention to decor and the fifties beach theme.

Pre booked accommodation made check in a breeze staff were helpful and attentive to our needs. Room was clean with modern retro style decoration. Small en suite no room to put toiletries... More

We were up for Splendour and what a lovely haven the La Costa Motel proved to be! The hosts even drove us to the airport the following day. For the price I 100% recommend this adorable little place!!!

Such a lovely little motel. The friendliest staff and cleanest motel I've ever stayed at. The sun deck was beautiful in the morning. Was very central. The only disappointment was only staying 1 night.

I arrived late at night but got a warm welcome. It's always a pleasure to find a clean room with lovely decor, as my room was. I was only there over night, but would have liked to stay longer. Thank you!

Fantastic little bungalow walking distance to the airport. Stayed overnight waiting for an early morning flight. Meticulously clean, friendly and neat as a pin. Comfy bed. Compact, but perfect for what we needed. A great start to our trip.

Had high hopes of a back to the 50s night however while the room was clean and modern in appearance it was also noisy the bed most uncomfortable we both tossed and turned all night, the bathroom was way to small to dry yourself in On the plus side the greeting was warm and generous from the owner and it...

La Costa motel has been renovated to a high standard. My room was extremely clean and comfortable. The bed and shower were wonderful!! The manager was very warm, welcoming and helpful. I found the noise from the highway quite intrusive, however I am booked to stay there again very soon! The access to the airport and hospitals is excellent and... More

Dear Micheleshute, Thankyou for your review and I am glad that you liked what we have done to La Costa Motel. I think when you were here, the roadworks were in progress and our usual quiet street was a detour for buses and cars. I am glad to say, after 3 months, the roadworks are now complete and the noise... More
