“great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

i booked this 2 days before i checked in. when i checked in i didn't know that they put me on the 30th floor. the view was amazing. from the kitchen to your bed and from the dining area the views are spectacular. from outside the building you dont realised that it was build probably on the late 70s. theres nothing to complained about except the curtains a bit dirty and the glass bathroom need cleaning but they are just minor bits.Who needs to pay expensive hotel when most of the time your at the beach or going shopping two minutes from your hotel so boys and girls dont waste your money staying on expensive hotels go to beachcomber hotel where every thing is near to your door steps

Room Tip: get the one bedroom, you'll get this king size bed that is very comfortable

You get what you pay for, the hotel looks as if it was overdue for a major update 10 years ago. More suitable for a group of lads having a weekend away spending limited time in the rooms and just needing a place to crash.

Not really suitable for families or couples.

Location was amazing; price was amazing and cleanliness...yay! I had a studio room which was more roomy than I expected a studio would be. It had a great view; so awesome that I took photographs straight away. Really happy.

Room Tip: Studio room was large and had fab view. It was north east.

Apart from the entry foyer this establishment is VERY tired. There was insufficient parking spaces partly due to derelict cars that had been dumped, and one had to almost always park on the lower level which has no lift access, too bad if you are wheelchair bound.The unit itself was just OK , the bed was very bony(you could feel the springs (bones ) thru the bedclothes.The seating supplied for watching the TV was way too low and needed to be turned around (very heavy ) to watch the box. The kitchen was well equipped but the fridge made a consistent growling noise. The unit was clean and had new carpets but the pillows were WOEFUL (a folded towel would have given better support) Fortunately we travel with our own pillows so this did not affect us. These units are individually owned and so you need your lucky socks on when you book to get a room which is of a reasonable standard. On a positive note the staff were pleasant and were able to overcome any minor difficulties that we faced, also positive is the location which is close to everything. Would I stay there again ??? Probably but I would want up to date photos of the accommodation before booking

Room Tip: Insist on photos of the unit that you will be occupying

Our first visit and stay on the Gold Coast we could not have been happier with the location , so close to everything , On arrival we were made feel very welcome and the studio unit we stayed in was comfortable . A small table and chairs in the unit would be great as you can't eat off your lap all the time. The unit is older and as such the rates were very good . Thanks for the hospitality

The first time i stayed at the beachcomber was really great the staff were not all that helpful.This time however i can say the staff were really great.They helped us and made it an easy stay.
Being my second time there i can say that if you are going to be fussy about decor ect dont stay there and pay a crap load more money somewhere else to stay.It is clean and a place to sleep good staff.The decor is not bad just out dated.
The views though and location are the best for the money.If you are a snob dont stay there and give the staff a hard time as i have seen before.
A lot of these rooms are individually owned so i imagine many rooms may vary in condition and decor.My two different rooms were fine thats my opinion.
