Reviewed 15 August 2017 via mobile

When you are greeted with a cheerful welcome and a handshake at the reception counter by the Manger it's always a positive experience.

Roscoe runs a very tidy, super clean well presented Camden Motor Inn beautifully located across the road from shops, cafes and restaurants.
It's walking distance to the popular Mermaid Beach (one of my favorites).

Rooms are well fitted out with everything you will need. Rate at the time of booking was very competitive and I shall definitely return here it is by far the best of the Motor Inns on the Gold Coast that I have stayed in.

Has off road parking first in best parked, and a comfortable balcony area for smokers.

Give it a shot.

Excellent to hear you enjoyed the experience - and another high quality Italian restaurant opened last night across the road . See you again.

Can't say enough good things about this spot. The rooms are spacious and tidy, equipped with en suite, TV, air con, toiletries and tea/coffee. It is a quick stroll down the road to the beautiful beach. Across the road is restaurants and a 24 hour night owl. Would recommend staying here so much and can't wait till I return.
Jac & Ross have done a great job taking this place over!

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.

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.
