Well, where should I start? Location. The location was great! But unfortunately that is the only time I will use that word to describe this dump.

Obviously maintenance is not a priority for the owners of this building. It hasn't been touched in what looks like 25 years. I'm not just talking about cosmetic issues here like out-of-date furnishings and fixtures, I mean broken furniture, stained carpets, missing baseboards, disgusting ceiling fans, broken lamps, and a washing machine that stained our whites "beige" (I won't even start on the fact that the machine had hardened soap in it from prior guests). This place was filthy. Although the sheets were clean.

I'm not usually a picky person about hotels, especially places to stay on a budget, but when we arrived I was extremely tempted to leave immediately. But it was so late and we were tired...we tried to sleep instead. I will admit...we never did see any bed bugs but I did see what looked like a cockroach in the kitchen one night.

Just to let you know, the Holiday Inn is basically across the street and would have cost us an extra $15/night....probably the best $15 ever spent in Surfers Paradise!

Unless you absolutely have to go to Surfers Paradise and this is the only place left...stay away. Not worth anything more than what you would pay at some backpackers for a dorm room. The views of the ocean and beach these apartments offer are not worth staying here!

Room Tip: すべてが海側に面し、各階3部屋あります。南の角部屋が一番広いのでは。
