Good basic motel but very clean, no service but they offered clean towels every day, it was quiet as the pub closes early. Shops near by, a microwave would have been good, great shower and comfy bed,. Can’t fault the room

8/10 Very good

We found the room suitable for our needs. The only thing I didn’t like was we were in a room that had an adjoining room. It felt like the people in the other room were in our room. I found that a bit unnerving at first. If we had known we would of asked for a single room without the door in between. Otherwise we have no complaints.

This is a budget motel in a very convenient location. But the facilities are limited and there is no roon service. I stayed for 5 nights and the room was never made. I wouldnt recommend for a family. Good for couples or friends looking for budget accomodation right next to Surfers Paradise.
