Can't complain about anything, really nice! Don't guess it may be noisy, actually you may not easily hear trucks. You can walk to the business or shopping center in like 15 mins. And it's 5 mins walk to the sea, as well.

Our room had almost everything, fridge, toaster, plates, cutlery, iron and board. The room was very well designed and set out. The bathroom was well laid out and looks newly renovated. The tv was quite large and position opposite the bed which was comfortable. We had every thing we needed.

I am currently staying at the motel. The rooms are neat and tidy with large screen TV. Gone are the days of motels offering meals ect which when on business is really good if available. I think the bedding could be updated, but good for most. I didn't find it noisy at all. I biggest issue is that other people... More

We were a party of six which included four teenage girls- even though we had a two bedroom unit we found it a bit cramped. The motel is in a great location- near the beach and across the road from Pacific Fair. Nice and clean, good service.

We booked here because family live in the next street and we were pleasantly surprised what lovely clean modern rooms they have.

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.
