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

It's hard to miss this place when you drive by, because the quaint vintage style just calls out, and certainly struck a cord with us. The office has DVDs available for rental, is decorated in real vintage style, and staffed by one of the friendliest ladies we've met. Exceptionally helpful and happy to show us a room beforehand. The rooms...

We arrived about two hours early and they still checked us into the room straight away, showed us around the room (which also had a complimentary breakfast & free wifi) and also supplied us with FREE bikes to ride down to the shops at Coolangatta! Super friendly people and I couldn't recommend this place more. They even dropped us off...

We stayed 1 night as we were flying out to NZ early the next morning. The motel is nice and close to the airport and they offer free transfers to the airport even at 4.15am. You can walk down the road a short way and find a nice place to eat. The room was comfy, cosy and clean, but the...

The people were very helpful. I rang ahead and she left the key out for me as I was arriving on a late flight. The room was clean, modern and had all you need. It is 100 meters from a beautiful beach and really easy access to the airport. I recommend it.
