Room was ok, bed was comfy. Very, very noisy. Sounded like the steps were about to fall down. Place is very run down and yards and pool haven't been cleaned for a long time. Parking is just ridiculous. Supposed to be 3 and a half stars but i only rate it half a star for comfy bed.

The motel is currently under renovations and we have many rooms being done right now. The pool is cleaned regularly and serviced by a pool contractor. Parking is restricted to only 16 bays but given the probability of all 22 rooms having a car to park the odds are you will get a park. There is a side street adjacent to the motel for cars with no payment if there is no bays left. The gardens and outdoor areas will be last to be changed so we do ask all prospective guests to reserve judgement until we have time to complete the work

Fantastic location, close to great restaurants, the beach and down the road from big shopping centre Pac Fair. Is a little dated and there are stairs, but comfy, clean and great price!

The room was very basic, but that was all we were after. It is quite old, however it was clean. The bed was pretty uncomfortable and hard. We could hear the traffic from our room at night, however it did not disrupt our sleep much. Great location.

The motel being old does not really affect the basic use of the motel. Our motel mattresses are of medium support and as mattresses are a personal thing when home we cannot please everyone.

Thank you Mark, the trade off for the great eateries and beach and public transport is the highway access to everything, can be a bit noisy at times.

due to unforeseen circumstances, it was necessary to upgrade a two person room to four person. called management and the four person room was already booked, however the twin bedroom family unit with spa was still available, busy weekend with bookings. we settled on an affordable price, and when we arrived, we were delighted with the upgrade. fully self contained and the deck on the western end was enormous. thinking about staying for a week. only gave four stars for facilities and condition. the facilities are very good, but, as with any of the older budget motels on the gold coast, there is always a little tlc required. having said that, no safety issues only minor issues such as a small patch of vinyl flooring lifting in a non traffic area. very happy.
