Spent 2 days over a weekend here. Rooms were basic with bare essentials (jug of milk and water in the fridge only) but you get what you pay for so can't complain about the too much. The only thing that was missing was the ironing board in the room when it had the iron in it. The decor of the... More

My stay at Arabella Motor Inn was a pleasant and relaxing overnight stay. I arrived early and was able to pay and get the key,much to my surprise. The room was basic and comfortable, but well worth the rate that you pay. My only problem I found was the car park was very small for a large van to be... More

We recently stayed here and the free wifi is garbage ! It can only be used outside and close to the office, it wont work in rooms at all. The owners have a small dog that uses common areas as a toilet. TV is a joke, i have a bigger computer monitor. Will never stay here again, EVER.

Clean but smelly. The motel is great value for money if you don't like the smell of cigarettes. We couldn't stop the smell of dirty smokers outside the rooms. Close to club and pub and great river across the road

Upon check-in it was a typical old motel which had been renovated. Free WiFi was advertised on their sign and online - however it is a... More

The location of this hotel is good, outside the main Coolangatta built up area just across from the river. It was clean and comfortable and the owner was extremely helpful. Good shower and air con. Good value for money.
