“Ok for the price, convenient to family event.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

Service was friendly and helpful, good guide to local eateries.
Room was dated but tidy and clean, a little road noise can be expected from the highway.
Undercover car parking was a snug fit for a family car, but acceptable.
Location is good for that stretch of the coast, small shopping centre adjacent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

Being the weekend of the Gold Coast marathon accommodation for one night was pretty scarce, however I found Camden Motor Inn without too much trouble and booked one night on the net.

Despite the previous review, we found Lois and Ray to be very accommodating insofar as I did not order breakfast the previous evening but Lois was happy to provide me at short notice with a steaming bowl of porridge with real brown sugar and toast! which was delicious. The rooms were clean and comfortable and basically that's all you need and yes, we would stay there again.

Thanks Lois and Ray

I won't be coming here again.
I had a terrible time at the Camden Motor Inn. The facilities themselves were not bad, however the owners were incredibly unpleasant to guests and not willing to offer any assistance.
This is not somewhere I would stay again, and I urge anyone considering it to RECONSIDER and find somewhere more friendly.
stay here at your own risk.
