I had an overnight on the GC for work and wanted to be near the airport. I wish my stay had been longer, this place was so nice. Lovely decor, beautifully renovated room, such a nice style. What's more I had a breakfast basket provided to me (that was so big I couldn't even eat it all!) and a free...

Such character and charm! Like stepping back in time but modernized and clean inside. The owners are wonderful. Incredible service, from the pick up to departure. Nice touch having instant food for purchase. Close to the airport and the beach. We loved it.

I stayed overnight (19 June 2016) with my mum at the La Costa motel due to its proximity to the Gold Coast Airport as we had an early flight the following day. The accommodation was exceptionally clean and modern and amazing value for money. The hosts could not have been more welcoming or helpful and provided a shuttle service back...

We had to book rooms for the day in between flights. The owner was fantastic at booking us rooms very last minute and making sure we were away from the road to rest. The rooms are very clean, refurbished and great decor. The little kitchenette and mini bar/breakfast basket was fantastic. Would definitely stay again when needing accomm near airport....

What can I say! Location - perfect walking distance to the air port. Room - extremely clean and everything one would need for an overnight stay. Atmosphere - gorgeous! I love the photos of the 1950s motel and the stark contrast (yet a clean, modern and faithful reinterpretation ) to the current motel. The little touches - a stocked fridge...

Loved the friendly reception and so helpful in finding places. Such a quaint retro style but modern inside. Very close to airport. Close to beach and surf club. Free internet and coffee pods. Best budget stay I have ever had.

Looking for a last minute motel in the Gold Coast/Currumbin area. The room was very nice inside, with modern conveniences. The staff were very helpful, providing recommendations for dinner in walking distance, Of which there are many. The walk along the coast us very scenic, and despite being near the highway and airport, the room was very quiet.

La Costa Motel is fabulous! It's retro style and has a wonderful history. La Costa is stylish, situated across from Gold Coast airport in a quiet street. Proximity to Coolangatta, beach restaurants and transport just adds to the appeal. Owners are great and couldn't do enough to please. Thank you! Jane
