A motel that has a perfect location in Coolangatta.... but that's about all that's positive. The room was not clean, when you walked barefoot your feet got filthy immediately. The ceiling had long strands of dust hanging down everywhere, the bathroom had lots of mould around the top of the room. The lounge was very dirty. The seats at the...

We made the booking online and had only the posted photos to go by, so we knew we were in trouble when we drove down the street and saw that the building is pink! A pink building on the Gold Coast... They must think that they are in Florida. Then we started finding out the small print. No off-street parking,...

The initial impression of the motel was not good. It is an eyesore next to modern hotel complex. We arrived at 4.30 pm to find a notice on reception to say it was shut, but that there was a message for us on booking.com. Checked this.. Reception had closed early as motel had no vacancies. We're told room number and...

If you plan on having a roof top party till well after 2am in the morning have the decency to inform your guests and offer the option of a refund so they can get a good nights sleep elsewhere. Did not see anyone on check in as we were informed by a phone call that the office would be closed...

The motel definitely needs renovation but it is priced for that. It is a great location on the beach, the beds were comfortable and the unit was very clean. Just be aware they do not have any parking.

Well was ok no parking had to park on street and some drinking idiots damaged the car very disappointing. Won't go back there unless there is undercover parking. Easy access to beach and clubs and that's it. And the room was basic and ok no cooking facilities.

I may have been spoiled staying at better places but usually only go for 3 to 4 stars for economy. This time I thought the location and price and reviews looked ok but big mistake. This place is 1 star. Room itself was ok , old but big enough and tidy but the external shouts roaches and it is perhaps...

Sure the building is tired and some of the rooms are a bit dark, but the service is friendly and very helpful, and of course the position is fantastic. Be aware there's a bar next door - it wasn't noisy when I was there on a Thursday night , but it could be an issue on weekends. For the price...
