Looking to get away from the crowds, Mermaid Beach is the place. Briefly, it is still part of the Gold Coast, just farther south. The skyscrapers of Surfers Paridise are visible, but barely in walking distance. Pros: Not as many people, small town feel and more "laid back".  Cons: A bit harder to get to if your using Public transportation....

Not somewhere I'd usually choose to stay - a little expensive for my budget. I had to leave my suitcase in the car overnight as getting it up the narrow stairs would have been a nightmare (lucky I was only staying one night). My first floor room was lovely.

Not somewhere I'd usually choose to stay - a little expensive for my budget. I also left my suitcase in the car overnight as it's huge and would have been a nightmare to get up the narrow and steep stairs! (Lucky I was only staying one night!)

This motel was really cheap compared with the rest around that area! Neat and tidy with all that you need for a short stay. Situated directly across from Pacific Fair and Jupiters Casino, a few blocks to all the lovely restaurants in Broadbeach. Few blocks to the beach. Owners were very nice. Could barely hear any traffic considering location.

Newly refurbished, clean, friendly and well located this reasonably priced motel is ideal for an overnight stay if you're not seeking a luxury retreat with all the frills, stars and spangles. Rooms have ensuite, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, tv, and aircon. There is a small pool on site and the beach is about 200 metres away. Off street...

We stopped by Tropicana motel for a night stay whilst we were travelling through the Gold Coast. We had 2 cars as we were relocating, both my partner and myself. The motel owners advised us that they had a car space shortage 15 spots for 17 rooms and there were no street parking nearby. We had no choice but to...

Parking is rarely an issue - 15 parks for 17 rooms and plenty of on street parking. It is only a problem when someone chooses to ignore the rules that were gently explained when you checked in. Selfish guests aside, we do have an occasional problem with members of the public deciding to use up our parking spaces to the...

My friend and I stayed just one night when on the gc doing some food research. The outside of the building is old school gc but the rooms have obviously been revovated and are modern spacious and clean inside. Pool was lovely. Easy walking distance to pacific fair and the beach. Would stay here again.
