Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Budget motel type property about 1 mile from main Surfers Paradise centre & 1/3 mile from beach. On main road in, by the Florida Gardens tram stop. 2-3 stops to town centre.

Standard facilities. No food or drink on site.

Note: be warned they take a A$100 deposit on arrival to cover any room damages & only reverse it 3-5 working days later. We also left our phone charger & adapter plug behind in our room & they only confirmed they had actually found it 4 days later, & then wanted to charge us an excessive set fee of A$30 + the actual.postage to return it to us which was a poor & disappointingly lack of service.

Opened the door & bed looked like it had been jumped on. Bed wasn't made well. There was 1 coffee cup, 1 wine glass, 1 plate, 2 forks and a knife. Fridge was very cold but had mold in it. Toaster & kettle supplied. 2 bar stools and the bed. The next door shower was so loud in our room it was awful. Lovely pool area. Secure parking area needed a good clean. Pretty good location even if it was a bit noisy.

I will admit that I selected this hotel on price and location.
Check in is a little difficult as you fave to arrive at a set time period or pre arrange before you get there. Called the front desk and was checked in without too much bother. Car park is underneath but you need the code to access, which you get on check in, so need to park somewhere in the meantime. Room was clean, equipped with everything I needed. There was also a kitchenette arrangement. It was at the rear and was relatively quiet.
However, the place has a feeling of a half way house, or low income rentals.
It seemed to me there were long-term residents.
The hotel offers little, no food, nothing in fridge, no restaurant, no meals. There is a pool tho.
For a cheap one night stay it was ok. Would I stay longer, I don't think so.

Very cautious about unsafe area, people, and practices. Paid online for a two night stay. They phoned me and asked me to pay a security deposit before showing up, reminding me there is a no refund policy. Front desk only open 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM. No one there on arrival just before 2pm, and no parking. Looked like a construction site with building materials scattered. Not like the pictures. They asked to withdraw additional the $100 security from my credit card and send copies of credit card and photo ID car licence offsite for additional security. They would not say where. My bank informed me that I would not be covered if any money went missing I asked for various options, such as a holding deposit rather than withdrawal, and writing my drivers licence details down rather than sending them off to an offsite location. In response, they kept me waiting for 1 ½ hours. Then told me again, no room without additional payment and copies of credit card and licence sent offsite. The manager on the phone then said a full refund would be given. We left and stayed elsewhere. Around this time the money to stay was withdrawn from my bank account by them. No refund. No room. Cautious about an unsafe area, people, and practices. Lesson learnt. Have contacted them repeatedly, and told as yet, no resolution. Awaiting a possible resolution ... but not as yet.

Very run down property. Dirty, you had to climb up on a chair to turn on the aircon, ceiling fans didnt work, dead bugs splattered on the walls, mould build up in the shower, shower door was broken, bed was far beyond its use by date. If it only cost $150 per night it is what you would expect but at the price they charged, forget it!!!!!!

Ok location however after check out - they charged me $30 and accused me of stealing 2 pillows and their cases!!! I mean, who would want to steal manky pillows!
Also, the room had a light with a fan, however, the fan had NO blades on it so didn't.

Right Middle leg of the bed was broken making it caved in. I didn't realised until middle of night when I woke with back pain. I put all the towels to level it and somehow managed to sleep. Next morning, the most irresponsible owner says, Sorry I can fix it now.
I asked for Blanket : Sorry they are all taken.
Hot water was on and off.
Table was chipping off
Chair was broken.
Room was not ready until 3 as they are short of staff.
Why are you running this place, bulldoze it.

The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and tidy, the kids loved the pool. The motel is close to shops and the beach and the convenience to take the tram instead of driving was great. Would definitely come back and stay again

Wonderful location in a well maintained motel with amazing pool area. Easy check-in with a great communication from the host. The room that I stayed in is very spacious and clean! Has a bar fridge, microwave and coffee table as well! Fantastic value for money. Will definitely stay again.
