The motel is generally cosy. Very comfortable, clean beds, decent internet. We came in the morning and got early check in and breakfast just upon arrival. It was raining all day and we couldn't go outside. The hostess gave us good movies to watch and in the fridge there was some good food for affordable price.

We stayed here recently for one night before flying out of the Gold Coast Airport. The rooms are very well-appointed, comfortable and clean, with everything provided that you might need. It has a wonderful character too, with charming decor, but also nicely modernised. We had no complaints, other than the walls being rather thin, so we could hear snoring in...

I had an overnight on the GC for work and wanted to be near the airport. I wish my stay had been longer, this place was so nice. Lovely decor, beautifully renovated room, such a nice style. What's more I had a breakfast basket provided to me (that was so big I couldn't even eat it all!) and a free...

Such character and charm! Like stepping back in time but modernized and clean inside. The owners are wonderful. Incredible service, from the pick up to departure. Nice touch having instant food for purchase. Close to the airport and the beach. We loved it.

I stayed overnight (19 June 2016) with my mum at the La Costa motel due to its proximity to the Gold Coast Airport as we had an early flight the following day. The accommodation was exceptionally clean and modern and amazing value for money. The hosts could not have been more welcoming or helpful and provided a shuttle service back...

We had to book rooms for the day in between flights. The owner was fantastic at booking us rooms very last minute and making sure we were away from the road to rest. The rooms are very clean, refurbished and great decor. The little kitchenette and mini bar/breakfast basket was fantastic. Would definitely stay again when needing accomm near airport....

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.
