Nice hotel and handy to beach, shopping and transport etc. Only a very small check in area with never more than 2 staff manning the counter so long delays at peak times if you need to speak to someone at reception. Car parking charges are not acceptable even by Gold Coast standards.

Hotel Parking

Cons: The price of parking.
I have been staying at this hotel for over 10 years. Since that time the parking has gone from included in price, $10 per night, $15 per night, $20 per night and now it is a ridiculous $30 per night. So the $99-00 per night deal becomes $129-00 and therefore opens up much more availability at other hotels. I have been prepared to support your hotel in the past but this outrageous increase in parking fee (which should be advertised or included in the price) has left me no option but to seek other accommodation in the future.

Paying for parking

Pros: Position only.
Cons: Parking fee should be advertised .
No where does it say you have to pay $30.00 per day to park at the hotel. Parking should be included in price. We had to park a substantial distance from the hotel to get free parking. We also had to carry our luggage. Being older people with medical conditions this walk was not pleasant.

I was not greeted with a pleasant welcome when I arrived upon checking in, the staff were rather rude and abrupt with the check in process. I was also not aware of the renovations That are happening otherwise I would have booked else where, overall very underwhelming and would not recommend to any friends or family . However the room was a kind superior with views and was nice.

Friendly staff and clean

It was a pleasent stay at the Vibe, the bed was very comfortable and it was close to all the night life, beaches, public transport and restuarants. Only downside is you had to pay $30 for parking at set location and also just another slightly annoying thing was that the bathroom/shower had no shelf close by to put your soap, shampoo etc, would have to put it on the sink just outside the shower...

$30 for the parking was ridiculous, especially being a guest at the Vibe. No wonder the car park was empty! I'd be happy to pay $10 -$15. That's the only thing I could fault about the Vibe.
