We booked here because family live in the next street and we were pleasantly surprised what lovely clean modern rooms they have. The bathroom has just been upgraded and how nice it is to stay in a unit you don't feel you have to clean before you move in. We have stayed in apartments at a higher rate on the... More

I was in Queensland for the Broadbeach Country Music Festival in June 2016. I found the Tropicana a great hotel to stay at. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and with a kettle, microwave, fridge, crockery etc. available, there wasn't a real need to eat out. The staff, especially Jan, are beautiful people to deal with and I won't... More

I had booked this motel on people's opinion. I was not sure how will it be, looking at its size. But fortunately this motel was really good. The two owners Husband and wife were very generous and helpful. They helped us in guiding the city tour and providing useful information. Rooms were very clean and specially bathroom, which was spotless.... More

Located on the Gold Coast Highway, very close to the traffic lights for the shopping centre. Traffic noise all night. No point in asking for a quite room - they will all get traffic noise. Apart from that OK; but we would not stay here again.

Hi Filbe Thank you for taking time to review our property and sorry we did not meet your expectations. Thankfully you're in the minority on this one, with most guests nominating our location as a very definite positive and only one in the last ten reviews mentioning traffic noise as a minor annoyance.

Was not expecting this motel to be as nice as it was. The rooms are spacious and modern. The bathrooms are very beautiful. The owners (especially Stuart) are very friendly. Would highly recommend this motel.

We came across this little motel while cruising for a place to stay on the drive up to Brisvegas from Sydney. The friendly helpful hosts were more than happy to show us the room because, tbh, they all look a bit dodgy on that gold coast strip. We were surprised by the room, the cleanliness, the whopping great mugs, the... More
