“Fantastic Airport Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We were picked up and dropped off at the airport by a wonderful friendly lady Karen free of charge and taken to this lovely motel. We had a large room with 4 single beds that was great for our 1 night stay. It is a lovly modern clean motel. THe owners are lovely people that would do anything for you. They showed us where to catch the free shuttle to the seagulls club for a lovely dinner and they dropped us back at the motel. Would highly recommend this for an overnight stay near the Gold Coast Airport.

Good clean and tidy motel. Rooms small but well maintained. Good undercover parking for car if required. Away from beaches and town area, too far to walk, which is unfortunate. However close to large club Staff friendly and helpful.

I had a large group staying for one night and Fiona checked us in at 12 midday which was great and much appreciated! She also gave us a later checkout! The rooms were nicely done and clean! It is handy to the airport but we just needed a place to stay and it was a good price.

We arrived about 9pm and Karen was there waiting for us. We have never met such a hospitable and friendly lady. Breakfast was included in the price, great value for money. Loved the bikkies provided with the coffee/tea in the room. We have found that lacking in motels nowadays.
The free drop off at the airport was included with Karen as our friendly driver! Well done Karen, you are doing a magnificent job by making people feel very welcome.

My visit here was somewhat unexpected as a business matter surfaced that had to be attended to. The proprietor Karen warmly greeted my wife and myself and as we had an hour two to spare on completion of our business she was a fund of information on how best to spend it. This motel is very homely, clean and comfortable with all that is required in reasonably priced accommodation. The motel is very close to the Gold Coast airport so there is some aircraft noise but it was not intrusive enough to bother us and this closeness is convenient if travelling by air.

Room Tip: All rooms seem fine--there are stairs to negotiate if not accommodated on the ground floor.

Location was great and we found the staff very helpful, even personally dropping us off at the Leagues club when the courtesy bus hadn't turned up. The free drop off at the airport was also great. Would highly recommend.

Staying here was like home away from home. It's like staying at a home of a close friend. I've never met a host as hospitable and kind as Karen. She really went the extra mile in all that she does. She gave great directions, suggestions, bus routes and recommendations. She offered to give me lifts into the town area. I could see that she loves her job and it's more than a job to her. She is happy when she sees her customers happy! The room is comfortable and very clean with great facilities like microwave oven, toaster, cutlery, etc. I highly recommend this place though it is a bit out of the way. Buses to Coolangatta are easily accessible. I got around with no problems at all.
