We just wanted a one night stopover,as booked a long term apartment the next day.This was the only Motel that was open @ 7:30pm,it seems all the others we tried closed @ 5:30. Not a way to run a business.Good clean basic motel,which as most of them needs a refurb.Good hosts,worth a try.

Booked this Motel more for nostalgia purposes from bygone years, although the price was also a factor considering I was needing 4 nights accomodation - paid just $85/night so for what I got was reasonable. Rooms are older style (approx. 40 years old) therefore of that style, small room, a side bench , small rear bench and bar fridge and...

Stayed here for GC600 with a friend. Libby was very helpful and gave us what we needed. Motel is close to public transport and shops which was convenient. Room itself is quite small, with an unpleasant odour - bit of cologne fixed that. Bed was comfortable and clean. Bathroom is dated. Small aircon unit (box style) that didnt really do...

Arrived and was greeted by the lady at the front counter, given our key and a small jug of milk which was adorable. The room was basic, the bathroom smelled damp but clean, the beds were also soft and clean. The highway is 10 metres away from the room and the traffic was extreme even for a Sunday which made...

I have stayed here for 2 nights. When I arrived, owner already have charged to my initial credit card. I meant to ask to charge another credit card, so it was a bit surprise. And the amount was incorrect, as I cancelled first night a few days ago. As I claimed immediately, it was corrected, so that was fine. It...

Affordable basic little motel. It was clean & it had all we needed . The family who runs it are very nice and helpful. Away from the noisy crowded Surfers Paradise. Sweet walk to restaurants and the beach.

Hosts were very welcoming, offered to send us to the nearest train station for us to return to Brisbane. Room was pretty spacious, bigger than expected! Wouldnt mind staying there again if i return to GC! There's a bus stop is right outside the motel too. Pathway about 200m behind the motel leading to the beach to chill and enjoy...

Great location, close to the beach for a walk or run. The fitness fanatic can even enjoy hill sprints and stair sprints at the beach end, Very friendly hosts. The room was clean, and comfortable. Excellent value, plenty of great restaurant close by.

“There are two beds in the room (one queen or king and the other a twin) so it is a great place for couples or single travelers and cheaper than a double bed hostel room.”
