Needed an overnighter at a reasonable price - perfect! Felt at home from Diane (owner) phoning late in the afternoon to enquire of our arrival time to the warm & friendly meeting when we did arrive. This very old block of flats have been wonderfully renovated & we were very impressed with the size of room, attention to detail, cleanliness,... More

Booked this because we needed a inexpensive but clean, etc accommodation for one night prior to a meeting taking place at Gold Coast Airport. This place is literally across the road - but also only a few metres from the beach. We were therefore really delighted with the price, the quality and the location of this accommodation. It is a...

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.
