A relaxing experience. Very quiet with privacy. Affordable. The owner gave me a $5.00 discount per night off the advertised rate ....without me asking. Said make it $60 a night for the $65 a night room. Comfy double bed, spare single. Nice cool a/c. I enjoyed it. Very relaxed atmosphere.

I've selected July 2013 as the time period that I stayed, but I stayed at this motel for a few nights in October 2011. Even though it's 3 years later, I'm rating it now because 1. I didn't know about TripAdvisor then and 2. I was reading reviews of a different hotel in a different town and for some reason...

I couldn't agree more with the other negative reviews. When I attended a friend's wedding on the Gold Coast I was looking for somewhere cheap to stay. There is other better accommodation available for a similar price. This by far is the worst place I have ever stayed in and I have traveled Australia and many parts of the world....

This old-style motel is well located to all facilities and to the beach. For an overnight stay on a budget, I appreciated the clean room and the ready supply of milk for a cuppa. The proprietor provided excellent service with a pleasant disposition. Comfortable bed, hot shower, clean room... value for money for the low tariff. A word of warning...

Don't do it. I also stayed because of the positive review of the first reviewer. It was terrible. There was cockroach poo in the bed and cockroaches running on the walls. The bathroom door was a sliding one and it kept getting stuck, really stuck. Everything the second reviewer said was accurate, except that I wasn't enamoured of the service....

We booked this motel based on the previous review. We wanted clean budget accommodation close to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, nothing fancy, no resorts, just clean & quiet. What an absolute dump it was. The motel looks like it hasn't been touched since the 1950s - out of a quaint American film - that was fine. You park underneath the rooms...

This is a not a fancy resort. If its luxury your after then you best stay elsewhere. Its a simple older style motel on the highway. But saying that the location is great; close to the Palm Beach Shops, the beach, 2km from the airport and close to tourist attractions such as Curribin Wildlife Sanctuary. And the good thing is...
