The room had everything we needed! It was clean and the beds were comfortable. It was very close to the beach, coffee shops, restaurants and other fun activities. Stefan and Grace went beyond any other motel we've stayed at. They made us feel like family! If we are ever in Australia, we will definitely stay here again!

Hi Laura,
Grace and I would just like to say a massive thank you for such a great review. We enjoyed telling you and showing you all the great spots on the Gold Coast to visit. If we made your time on the Gold Coast more enjoyable then we have done our jobs. Grace and I both enjoyed getting to know David and Sara as well. We hope that you all visit us again soon or if we come to the USA we will be sure to get in touch.

Kind Regards,
Stefan and Grace

We just wanted a one night stopover,as booked a long term apartment the next day.This was the only Motel that was open @ 7:30pm,it seems all the others we tried closed @ 5:30. Not a way to run a business.Good clean basic motel,which as most of them needs a refurb.Good hosts,worth a try.

Booked this Motel more for nostalgia purposes from bygone years, although the price was also a factor considering I was needing 4 nights accomodation - paid just $85/night so for what I got was reasonable.

Rooms are older style (approx. 40 years old) therefore of that style, small room, a side bench , small rear bench and bar fridge and a bathroom thats original in condition. Small air con unit worked well and the ceiling fan was all that was necessary overnight. This room had a double and single beds (both comfy) so floor/other space was minimal. At time of check in was provided a small jug of milk for tea & coffee and bathroom had basic toiletries. Rooms have access to wifi (free) and worked in the room on 2 devices

When I arrived couldn't actually get into the office, screen door is locked- whilst this is probably just normal security practices does leave you a questioning feeling is the Motel being right on the highway safe re: room security. Had to wait for someone to come, once overcome this was given the room key and able to look after myself. The Motel does not offer any breakfast (at all) so you're heading out. And even though the staff indicated they wouldn't enter the room for the duration for the stay I would have thought the offer to replace the tea/coffee, garbage bin and towels each day would not be too inconvenient.

Overall it's not flash, but comfy. If I was paying more I'd be seeking the couple of items above being addressed. Would I stay here again for this length of stay ( in all honesty probably not) but if I just needed somewhere to put my head down and get a decent sleep this place this Motel could be an option. If you wanted to compare I'd probably do some rate research for the motels along the Mermaid Beach/Nobby Beach strip and get the options and value your seeking prior to committing.

Stayed here for GC600 with a friend. Libby was very helpful and gave us what we needed. Motel is close to public transport and shops which was convenient. Room itself is quite small, with an unpleasant odour - bit of cologne fixed that. Bed was comfortable and clean. Bathroom is dated. Small aircon unit (box style) that didnt really do the trick, however a ceiling fan is right above the beds which is good. Overall, its a budget motel, not a bad spot to put your head down for a night or two. Wouldn't recommend staying longer though, you may get cabin fever. We paid $100/night which was good. One of the managers said we were getting a really good deal, but to be honest if it were more expensive i would have stayed elsewhere.

Late Sunday we decided to extend our stay both GC before driving home to Yamba.

We booked this place and arrived after 9pm.

Check in was simple and the room was lovely! Great settings for a motel, nicely decorated and cute clean mugs for a cup of tea before bed!

Literally a little home away from home

It was everything we needed, clean and comfy bed perfect for a stay

A big plus is that it was quite quiet even though on main road which was a nice surprise!!!
