We have booked Tropicana Motel based on the recommendations at tripadvisor. The motel is about 5 minutes driving distance outside of the town center. The motel and the rooms look like you expect from a motel with the name "Tropicana": They could easily make a 70s flick in the premises, if directors look for authentic set locations. You can borrow movies and a dvd player, internet was not for free. We visited in February 2012 and did not chose to have breakfast as it was nicer to have it in the town. From my personal feeling is that it is a bit overprized (10 - 15%) but obviously Torquay is Australias surf city No. 1 and therefore hotels are more expensive.
