My husband and I stayed here in december 2012 as my husband was having surgery at a local clinic. We found the staff helpful,the room was clean and good value.
I would certainly recommend this motel to anyone.

Stayed in suite 1. It has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen and one with 2 singles. In the loungeroom however is another 2 singles. I thought this was a great idea. I loved the rooms, they were simple but had heaps of space. It was very clean, nice large kitchen and bathroom. The only problem that you may have is that the room is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. We only stayed 2 nights though so the stairs were not that much of a problem. Probably helped us keep off some holiday weight gain! My daughter loved the pool. This room had a view of the pool. It is directly across from the hospital, could not hear any traffic from the bedrooms. Could hear ambulances from the lounge room though - daughter loved it.

I travelled with my mother and 5 year old and we were perfectly happy at the Earls Court Motor Inn. We had a large room with a queen and 2 single beds. Everything was very clean and in good condition. It is very handy to the hospital, Australia Fair, Seaworld and there are some good little restaurants around there too. I think previous negative reviews are a bit harsh - it is a motor inn, not the hilton and for the price, it was very good. They also have apartments at the back of the complex and a nice pool and bbq area. The standout feature of this place is the management: Linda was so kind and friendly and her husband makes a great breakfast! I'd be surprised if you were disappointed with this place. It's just fine!

The place needs a good overhaul for starters, very tired beds, worn out chairs and 1 (yes one!) complimentary shampoo for a 4 night stay was the kicker. When after three days with no replacement shampoos, discovered that the man at reception desk didn't even know there was any shampoo provided!
Needless to say replacements never arrived. Only stay here if you are desperate.

ECMI, Manager at Earls Court Motor Inn, responded to this reviewResponded October 19, 2012

We are naturally upset to receive a review such as this. In fairness, we had taken a few hours off and unfortunately the person relieving did not know where to find supplies. Immediately upon our return we gave the guest his requested shampoo (a fact he omitted to mention) and asked if there was anything else he would like. He responded that he was fine.
Please note that 25 rooms have been refurbished with new beds and soft furnishings and within 2 months the remaining ones will also be complete. The entire complex will also be recarpeted.

This was a very handy location for a family of 5 (or 6) in Southport for a couple of days for Sea World/Movie World, etc. This was one of the few times on our trip that kid #3 had a proper bed, rather than a fold-out bed. There were also 5 dinning room chairs (rather than 4) - something that is rare! Very close to Sea World. Good kitchen and laundry. Staff were very helpful and sorted out a problem very quickly. We were happy here.

The only time you would stay here is to visit people in one of the 2 near by hospitals. The rooms are very clean, but very out dated. The mattress I slept on was extremely worn, the tv did not work and one particular worker was extremely rude. Any simple thing I asked for (eg directions) was a real hassle.

The owners made us feel at home and they where great. They would organize transport for mum when she needed to go the hospital to visit me. The where great when I couldt travel they also let us book another night. They just made us feel at home.

Room Tip: Room three was good the room are big and roomy.
