Tropicana Motel Mermaid Beach
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Mermaid Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 November 2017

We've stayed here quite a few times and love the simple and nicely renovated rooms. Right across the road from Pac Fair and a short stroll to the Broadbeach dining and nightclub strip. The owners are lovely and we will no doubt be back again next time we stay on the Goldy.

Stayed: November 2017

Reviewed 8 November 2017

I stayed three nights at the Tropicana and it was exactly as I expected following the favourable reviews on Trip Advisor.

But, sadly, there are notices saying the property is for sale and is subject to redevelopment.

I had a back room so noise was not a problem.

The room was spotless - exactly as others have described.

Curiously, there were no towel rails but there were two hooks in the bathroom.

I could not fault Tropicana and can understand that since it's in a high rise area redevelopment is a real option.

Tropicana is very well served by public transport. The 777 bus from the airport terminates across the road (about three minutes walk away). The light rail from Southport terminates at the same spot: Broadbeach South. There is also the 745 bus to/from Nerang station connecting with trains to/from Brisbane and Brisbane Airport. Soon the light rail will extend to Helensvale station offering another transport option to/from Brisbane. Visitors should consider public transport options.

I cannot fault this motel. It is just a short walk to Jupiters Casino and the shuttle bus service to the airport and across the road from the light rail. The room itself was clean and ideal for an overnight stay with a microwave and cutlery, crockery and glassware for two supplied. However the selling point for me was the bathroom. It was a decent size and spotlessly clean with hooks for clothing and cupboard space for toiletries. My wife and I have stayed there before and will do so again.

This room is value for money. Room was renovated, clean and had all the amenities needed (more than hotel rooms). Had basic cutlery, plates, cups, tea, microwave and fridge. Nice big tv with a range of channels as well. Nice big shower. I'd happily stay there again. Bed is a bit hard but not too bad.

We stayed for one night in our way down south. I knew it was going to be very basic because it was cheap. We stayed in room 7 which has the most uncomfortable bed I have ever not slept on. We were up most of the night and when finally did get some sleep woke up with sore backs

Everything else was fine. Clean bathroom neat and tidy and what you would expect for 2 stars. They just need new beds!!!!!!
