Reviewed 22 May 2017 via mobile

If you want a great location this is the place. The bus stop to Surfers is any 5 minutes away. On the return journey it is a minute away. Walk out of the motel and cross a small road and there is an strip of restaurants and places to eat, even a bottle shop. The Night Owl (like a 7 eleven) is there too.The beach is down the street about 5 minutes away.

If you are looking for a 5 stars hotel, this is not for you.

Your hosts Ross and Jac are lovely and available to ensure you have a wonderful stay on the Gold Coast. They both displayed there passion for being in the hospitality industry and for all the glamour of the popular hotel chains, for me when I travel this is priceless.

Stayed: May 2017, travelled solo

The staff was friendly and welcoming. The tiny pool onsite was very disappointing to see but the beach is only a 5 min walk away which was fabulous. Close to Pacific Fair shopping centre. The bathroom was a bit smelly and the carpets could do with some new ones but we had clean sheets and a nice bed to sleep on. There is not enough on site parking to cater for all the rooms. Free internet was great though.

Mould in shower, dirty carpets, clothes left in wardrobe from previous guest.Left a review on their Facebook page which they deleted. Very poor customer service.
Only 9 cars had on site parking approximately 20 rooms in motel. On street parking was limited to 15 mins.
Definitely do not recommend this motel

I have noticed your review and thought I would let you know that Jac and I took over Camden on 28.2.2017. We have worked hard to make the rooms immaculate. Yes we have 15 rooms and 13 carparks which normally works fine as not everyone has a car. The onstreet parking is also good in both Tamborine Street and Gold Coast Highway.
Gardens are being upgraded by Jac who is a horticulturist and hopefully, if you stay again, you will notice a difference.
Our aim is to restore the motel to a place of beauty and fun where guests and their families relax and enjoy the wonderful Gold Coast lifestyle in clean and affordable accommodation..
It would be great to host your stay again at some time in the future.
Cheers Ross and Jac Given.
