Reviewed October 10, 2013

This hotel was booked during school holiday time so I understand that it was more expensive than usual. But $175 a night (stayed 6 nights) for a 5m x 4m room with no table inside the room, towels didn't get changed til day 5, and that was after we requested this. The rubbish bin in the room was not emptied once during our stay. We did expect a lot more for our money. Please note the staff were friendly and helpful.

We stopped here for one night in the motel section. We checked in early in the afternoon and were somewhat put off by all the trash we had to walk around at the top of the steps. It didn't make a good first impression but was all cleared away by later in the afternoon. In general, the step and balcony areas could use a clean up and big containers of cigarette butts could be removed.

They can't do much about being in the flight path of the Coolangatta airport but it was a bit noisy for anyone trying to sleep before the planes stop at night. There was also a lot of lights on all night outside the rooms.

The motel is right on the beach. I really liked the style of the room with the light furniture and very colorful wall decor and linens, it was fun and beachy, the signs on the outside of each door were cute. It was great that the windows could be opened to let in the sea breezes.

The price went up after initial booking, ostensibly because of a change in management. The motel we were allocated on arrival was unacceptable - so tight it was not possible to get out one side of the bed. As a result we had to pay even more to get a unit that turned out to be pretty good. In the end we believe we paid considerably more than we needed to, despite the onset of increased rates for school holidays.

Although being on a flight path to the nearby airport this not an issue as flights seem not to operate during normal sleeping hours. The local bus stops outside the gate for easy access to eating places in Kirra and Coolangatta. The nearest patrolled beach is about 100m away.

Stayed with a girlfriend on a two day beach break. Very good price, very clean and well appointed room, comfy beds and excellent friendly service. Coffee shop in the office and a close by bus to travel up toward Currumbin or Surfer's Paradise or down to Coolangatta . We enjoyed being right on a beautiful beach and long walks up and down the coast. The beachfront was refreshingly grassy and had chairs and tables .. Not the place for a long term stay ... or little children. But being so close to the airport ... and a great .... not so crowded area ... perfect for a few days.

Stayed here overnight while on holidays, great location to the beach and short taxi ride in to Coolangatta. Rooms are very basic, but clean and well presented. A little noisy between rooms, but I didnt check in to Versace. Im not sure I would stay long term, but I didnt check out the larger rooms which seemed to be located right on the beach.

Room Tip: Stayed in a triple room, but checking out larger rooms on the beachfront would be worth it, as they...

Stayed this weekend and thought this place was average if that. Arrived friday evening around 5:30 to find that management was gone and took a while for ppl left in charge to work out where we staying, got into our family unit which was right beside the pool which we had to walk through the pool area to get to and the gate to our unit was not self closing which may only be a small thing but could be potential for disaster when you have children with you. I thought it was now a legal requirement to have self closing gates into a pool area. Half the lights in the unit did not work and no light in the childrens bedroom worked. It was tidy enough on the surface but there was a lot of dirt or maybe mould on handles in the bathroom and things like the door stops. It was cheap accomdation though so maybe it comes back to you get what you pay for.
