How we made our reservation: We made our booking through the Wotif website. On arrival at the motel reception: When we arrived this motel in the mid afternoon we had trouble raising any reception staff to check us in. After some time we were met by the owners son who had no idea at all as to where our booking... More

The room is very basic but it not a problem if you only need a bed. The important factors are that the rooms are clean, comfortable bed, quiet and a good location. Within two blocks there are a number of restaurants, bars and a convenient store.

Accommodation was basic but clean. Excellent value for the price. Service very friendly! Not a room you'd spend a lot of time in but would recommend as a base to explore the Gold Coast from. Easy to get around but away from the craziness of surfers.

Last minute booking, approx $160 for one night when most were booked out. Was pleasantly surprised with lowered expectations. It was clean and had everything we needed, which was mainly just a bed. But had tea and coffee and even a couple of chocolates. Didn't try the pool, but beach was a short walk away. Some restaurants/cafes in walking distance.... More

This is an older motel well located in Mermaid beach. Only 2 blocks back from the water and with plenty of shops, resturants and bars close by, this place ticked boxs for me. The property has everything we needed for a comfy stay of 3 nights and Benjimin was a perfect host. I would gladly stay here again as it... More

I had to stay close to Burleigh Heads for a business overnighter. This place was small, but clean and priced very well for somebody just looking for a clean bed to rest their head on. Would stay again when travelling for work.

Its location is close to everything and easy to navigate around. Staff is indeed a difference, with their friendly accommodation and stunning beautiful faces. Rooms were clean, not tacky at very affordable price. Would like to stay here again.

Nice, small and well priced. Great location, close to everything and on the main road so easy to navigate around. Only downside to this is the slight traffic noise but not unbearable Of the street parking a bit cramped might be difficult for a large car if there are multiple cars parked in there The lady there was lovely and...

We stopped here as it was small, it was very clean, the one staff member was really lovely, Rooms were cheap, but not tacky. The rooms were spacious, walking distance to the beach, shops, pubs. Tucked away between a couple of big buildings on the main Gold Coast Highway, we didn't hear a thing. Totally recommend it...

Great location right in the middle of the Gold Coast on the main road. The price is good, the rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a no frills place to sleep, this is a good choice.
