Easy access to buses and trams, cafes and restaurant, Pacific Fair shopping center and beach. I think the price was reasonable for Gold Coast where accommodations are so expensive.
Room was very basic. It's okay for a short stay.

Thank you for appreciating the motel for what it is .
A budget property in the heart of Mermaid Beach that offers everything close at hand.
Close to public transport, the beach and many restaurants close at hand.
Very basic rooms with nothing special but clean comfortable beds and great little cafe for guest to enjoy.

The only real plus for this place was the price !! Old, tired, worn-out and badly in need of a lot of work to bring it anywhere near reasonable. At least it was fairly clean. You would think that in the middle of winter they could have at least made the beds with a blanket on them. Not really good enough !!! Why say that you have WIFI when it doesn't work in the rooms??

Room Tip: Don't rely on wifi working in your room. If you go there in winter ask for a heater and another blanket.

Our advertising states that there is wifi but it is not reception signal is not guaranteed in rooms. But it does work in the garden area.
The building is old and in keeping with the old Gold Coast Charm it is hard to keep an old building looking like the new style modern apartments. So if that is want you want to pay for then dont choose and old building located in the heart of Mermaid Beach a few minutes walk to the beach or delectable food a plenty for dinner. The cafe on site offers great food and beverages with discount to guests.
All rooms have heating and the blankets are in the cupboards as standard practice for most motels.

Well you get what you pay for, worst thing is my kids now know how cheap I am.
Man this says 3 and a half stars, the thought of 2 stars scares me.
I could have taken 200 terrible photos, kitchen window didn't close, toilet was on a slant, shoddy powerpoints etc etc.
I made sure this place had wifi cause I'm afraid thats all kids care about these days, well it didn't really work.
I know I know I should have expected it, I'm just to cheap.
Was comfortable enough I close, great location.
But it is the sort of a place if you brought a "Street lady" too she would be offended by how dodgy it was.
Note to self "stop being so cheap"!!!

The property is actually advertised as 2 star. Budget property. Old yes but rooms are extremely functional. Our wifi is not guaranteed inside rooms as advertised.
The motel suits those that want to pay for just what they use. NOT pay for resort style property and never use the amenities. The inside of rooms offer clean beds clean bathrooms and the kitchenette has all you need.

Nasty and greedy for cash lady manager, even "goog morning" can not say, but to charge an extra fee for picking up rubbish by the cleaners already. They even save toilet paper, which you have to buy yourself, at 8.30 p.m. turn off the light on the balcony and everyone to sleep, poor wi-fi, during the breakfast on the balcony the cleaners run with rags, next to the noisy highway. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

Firstly the guest was greeted daily as with every other guest however there was a language barrier to contend with.
Lights in the common area on balconies are timed to go out at night for the comfort of all guests sleeping to ensure that our hotel policies are kept with noise outside.
All guests are advised that rooms are not serviced daily but depending on nights stayed services are done where toilet paper is replaced. At no time did the guest come to office to request toilet paper which is what all guests are advised that the kitchen items are not replenished but extra toilet paper is gladly given on request. Our cleaners start at 8.30 to 9am and our staff must be able to access all areas to perform their duties the balconies are common for all staff and guests and if guests are choosing to sit in front of their room they must accept that cleaners and other guests alike will be using this area. Wifi is FREE and not paid for as part of any tariff package. It is just a service offered to assist guests to check on flights, stay in touch with family and book other accommodation. It is well advertised that wifi is not guaranteed in rooms. To end with, the guest was charged an extra cleaning fee as they left the room in a state that was not acceptable after being advised what to do to avoid further cleaning costs. Unfortunately this guest did not like the fact he was charged but during the stay period was at times stating how much he was enjoying their stay.

Beds were clean and comfortable, Very small TV, WIFI reception inconsistent, Had only bench in Kitchen with 2 high chairs, no other table or chairs in room. Bathroom and shower facilities need to be completely modernised. Has a nice café downstairs, people are pleasant here.

The room occupied would be a twin room which has a king bed and 1 single bed so there is no room to then put a table and chairs set for 3 persons hence a bench with stools.
The tv although on the smaller size is for viewing but we prefer not to take up any extra space with large televisions which are not really required.
The building is many decades old and has had a few upgrades but at this point it is not the current owners intention to further upgrade or modernize bathrooms or kitchens. We offer basic accommodation for all guests and to keep rates down offer old fashioned service before anything else.
