Reviewed September 16, 2012

Stayed at La Costa for one night and regret for not staying longer. My kids were very happy as they were given a separate room to settle in. It was so awesome having a full kitchen facilities and LCD TV with DVD players in both rooms. We stayed in #2 close to the road. Having a private parking lot just outside every room is something that makes me wanting to go back to this motel. For the price of AUS$160 a night is indeed a good deal not to be missed. Diane and her husband were very nice to us. Diane being so polite and helpful gaving tips as where to dine for best food in town. Yes i would recommend anyone who looking for an accommodation at Gold Coast to this motel and i will definately stay in this motel on my next trip.

Stayed here for a night as we had an early flight out of Gold Coast to catch. Chose it for its close proximity to the airport. Turns out better than expected: it was a quick walk to the beach, the rooms were just renovated and extremely clean and beautiful, the service provided by the owners were unparalleled. John went out of his way to help us get a dinner reservation at a popular restaurant, thank you once again. Will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Gold Coast.

I needed a Hotel close to Coolangatta Airport for an early morning flight. I want something cheap and cheerful and wasn't expecting anything particularly great. It far exceeded my expectations, the room was brand new, clean and half block to a beautiful beach. To top it off the manager gave me a lift to the airport a 6:30 in the morning.

John is the friendliest and warmest proprietor we've met in Gold Coast. He was extremely helpful, giving us directions to eateries and even reminding us to eat early because the restaurants close early. Although the motel looks nondescript from the outside, the room we stayed in was very classy. We loved the cypress wood flooring, the comfortable bed and little thoughtful touches, There is an air-conditioner/heater which is free to use. (As a side note, John renovated the motel himself and we can tell that he has pride in his work!) Location is excellent. Literally across the airport (maybe 3 minutes drive?) and just minutes away from Kirra beach. Even so, it's very quiet and restful. One special thing to note: If you have an early flight to catch, John will offer to send you to the airport. We think that the walls between the rooms (only one other room beside us) are a little thin. So we could hear our neighbour sneeze but overall, we loved our stay at the motel and are sorry we didn't spend more time there. Cannot recommend it more highly.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have stumbled upon La Costa. Not only is it 2 mins away from Gold Coast airport and reasonably priced but it is also beautifully decorated! Funky, beach themed interior really made my day. Kitchenette was also very useful, adjoining rooms which was great - the kids loved having their own space, tv etc. 3 minute walk from a gorgeous beach too. On top of all that - John and Diane are just so lovely - what a difference it makes to have a friendly face pick you up at the airport (yes they have free airport pickup/drop off!). They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and attend to anything we needed day or night. If you need somewhere to stay close to the airport, before or after a long flight - this is it. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

If you're after cheap and cheerful this is definitely it. Much nicer on the inside. Very close to airport, beach and cafes within walking distance. Comfortable bed. Small kitchenette all functioning and small ensuite clean. Great value.
