This is an old property in need of maintenance and definitely on the budget end of the scale. That said it is only a short walk to the (patrolled) beach and the highway out front provides access to transport. I didn't use the pool and spa but they looked clean. The room had a toaster, microwave, jug and fridge and...

I stayed overnight as a friend was already at the hotel. Whilst the hotel is cheap I'm not sure its cheerful. Ask for a quiet room as the hotel is on the highway and my room was at the front and had all the traffic noise. Despite the fact all the rooms have no smoking stickers the room reeked of...

My kids & I were to spend one night at Sunshine Beach Resort so as to easier attend an event at 5am the next day. Upon first entering the room, my 13 year old stated it smells like dog. I personally only noticed an over-powering lemon smell that we had to try air out before spending time in the room....

Stayed for a couple of nights, reasonably priced and a good location. Walking distance to the beach, pub, and restaurants. Parking out the back. Older rooms but comfortable bed. Nice pool. Based right in miami not far from burleigh and maybe 10 minute drive to surfers.

However,I decided to try Sunshine Beach Resort again (I had stayed here in the past and it was ok). The resort has a new manager (Vanessa) , she is a valuable asset to this...

Upon arrival we had only one bath towel in the room, no toiletries and one 3 little milks in the fridge. Manager apologies for the lack of towel and toiletries, but even then were were only given 2 cakes of soap (1 each).. no...

The cleaning services now available here are bad & the rooms aren't better-it appears that the bathroom is the dirtiest place in the whole room & the noise near the highway makes it difficult to get a good night's sleep!The bed's quite small & uncomfortable,but the laundry's the worst as they charge you to use it & the washing machine...

My daughter and I was visiting a relative on the Gold Coast and had an early flight the next morning. This place was great for late check in and overnight stay before early flight out the next morning. Clean, comfortable quiet and convenient. Close to airport and shops. Staff lovely and helpful. Would say again.

I was so worried about staying here as I booked and paid before reading the reviews!!! And when I read the reviews I panicked!!! BUT we where pleasantly surprised!! Its definitely not 5 star but our room was quite clean and smelt clean , location is good. You get what you pay for so we really didn't have any complaints,...

Stayed on Saturday night and found the place too be very tired but also very clean. Absolutely fine for a stop over & I believe that the new management will endeavour to make improvements as they can. Air con worked extremely well & found the pool to be very satisfactory.
