“Good for an overnight stay only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Quite far from the town area. Ideal for those who has a flight to catch the next day and if you forgot to book a cab, you can walk to get to the airport. The rate I got was high, considering how the room look and their facilities. The staffs were friendly though their reception closes at night and opens around 7+ in the morning, so if you are a tourist without a mobile and need to make emergency call, there's no way you can make that call. And it's not advisable to stay there during winter, it gets very cold even if your inside the room.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We had booked for one night near to the airport as we found it cheaper to travel from the Gold Coast to Sydney rather than from Brisbane. The room 8 was bijou even though it had a double bed, 2 bunks and a cot. If I was advising potential guests I would suggest booking room 3 downstairs. We had this room on our return journey. Everywhere was clean, but the walls are relatively thin. If you arrive later in the day, make sure you have something in to eat. Otherwise, there are a number of local cafes and restaurants turning left out of the motel and a short walk away. Similarly, a longer walk turning right and crossing the main road will bring you to a garage for some groceries. This, coincidentally, is just outside the airport.
For those people who prefer, you can take your luggage the half mile to avoid taxi costs. If you are in a car and wish to leave it there, you will find no long term parking at the motel but you can walk 100 yards towards Kirra and book through EZI Parking. Included in the cost is a lift to and from the airport.

Room Tip: Choose room 3.

This place is absolutely fine for a one-night stop before flying out from Gold Coast airport. It's clean, the staff are friendly and it is very near the airport - you could walk there if you wanted. It may not be close to restaurants but the surf club is just round the corner for a bite to eat and a drink. I wouldn't spend a whole holiday here as it is quite basic but would definitely do an overnighter again.

Golden Shores was absolutely perfect for a one night stop before an early flight. Easy to find and very close to the Gold Coast airport. The service was great and we were warmly greeted at reception. The rooms are what you pay for - small but clean and contain a kitchenette (bar fridge, microwave, sink) and a TV. Very impressed and would definitely come back again!

A little dated bit generally very clean and friendly service.
Had an amusing time trying to get wet under the shower, but with a few adjustments I managed it.
Good option for a night, not sure I consider much longer.
Free wifi is an added bonus.

Thank you for your review. The Motel was fully renovated in 2010 and was styled in a retro beach theme in keeping with the area's strong connection to the beach and the world surfing championships which are held every year at Kirra/Snapper Rocks.

Good motel to stay in if u want to be close to the airport (10 min walk). We stayed there because we had an early morning flight the next day. It's close to the beach but not that close to restaurants etc. We would stay here again if we needed another airport motel, it's clean, has been renovated and staff are friendly.

Location close to Coolangatta/Gold Coast Airport is a great bonus. Property is far from the newest on the Gold Coast but has been renovated and the room was clean and well looked after. The motel is not in the middle of downtown but I had a rental car so not sure whether local public transport can take people anywhere interesting. Having said that, the airport is within walking distance if needed.

Thank you for your feedback. Public transport is available directly outside the Motel which gives access to Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach & Pacific Fair, Airport, Currumbin Sanctuary, Robina, Coolangatta and Tweed Heads. North Kirra Surf Club and Bistro is just around the corner on the beach front and Beaches Cafe is a 2 minute walk away. We can also arrange transfers to the theme parks and the Shuttle bus to O'Reillys Resort picks up from our Motel as well.
