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.

Stayed here only one night to allow close access to medical facilities close by.
Friendly helpful reception staff.
Undercover on site car parking is free, excellent free wifi, very spacious room/suite with Airconditioning, spotlessly clean room with crisp white linen.
Overall, fantastic value for money. We would certainly stay here again & highly recommended to this motel others.

My elderly mum, 12 year old son and I stayed here for 3 nights while my mum was receiving treatment from Tasman Healthcare just up the road. We stayed in a room with 3 single beds, air conditioning, fan, microwave, toaster, kettle, bar fridge (with small freezer) tv etc. Even though the room was dated, it was spacious and had a round table for sitting, right in the middle of the room. It was also very clean. The housekeeper was lovely and very concerned not to disturb mum one afternoon while she was sleeping. I would stay here again because it was extremely convenient to the medical precinct, so I was able to take mum in her wheelchair right from the door of our ground floor room, straight to her appointments (easy 2 min walk). The staff were very kind and helpful and the pool was great to relax in at the end of the day.

I stayed here for two nights with my partner while on a little holiday - she had never been to the Gold Coast before, so staying here nice and close to the tram was great - we were able to get on the tram and explore Gold Coast in a matter of minutes.

The reception staff are lovely, they’lll help you with the checkin process, let you know how to get to your room, where to park etc, give you the names of some local eateries and attractions and also fulfil just about any request you have.

The rooms are spacious, self contained and comfortable for two people. The bed was made with crisp linen and the towels were lovely and soft. The room was clean and smelt nice when we walked in. You also get a limited daily room service, so new towels everyday was a bonus!

The only negative - I had to go home at the end of our stay!

We’ll definitely be back here. It’s affordable, convenient, spacious, clean and secure.

The motel and apartments were as advertised and met my expectations: conveniently located; walking distance to beach, restaurants; full kitchen, large main room, dining area; fairly quiet. We stayed in a suite/apartment for one night - at booking time it was the only room available. We were going to do the GC Marathon but it was canceled and we moved the overnight date to a couple months later. The staff were very accommodating for this change of dates; they had no problems helping us out. The staff have always been super helpful and kind in all interactions (phone calls, emails, in person). There were a couple things problematic in the apartment, but they were minor enough. And when you have such lovely staff - this makes a huge difference in how we enjoyed our stay.

There was a microwave,but there wasn't much in the way of cutlery & no plates? There was no shower gel!! But there was soaps-shampoos-conditioners in the bathroom instead.. It was only a $50 "key deposit" which was refunded after handing in/departure. The check in time was good though as they allowed me to arrive without having to wait until around 2 p.m. The reception were very good. So there were mainly positives but with the negatives it's disappointing with the price paid* the 2 single beds instructions I believe online when booking weren't specific I don't think as I thought it was a "standard room" therefore double bed instead but as it was the only 1 left so I don't really know as I believe usually this means just the 1 bed in the room not 2?

I stayed at Earls Court Southport during the Gold Coast Marathon Weekend. This location is apprix 1km from the start line so the run to the start line on race day can be a warm up. I stayed there on my own so was sufficient and comfortable for one night. Room was clean and very friendly staff. Will definitely stay there again.

Stayed in a Suite for a couple of nights and found the rooms to be adequately appointed although dated. The staff were very friendly and helpful (special mention to Nicki who was very friendly and helpful). Free undercover parking and the pool area was very nice.
Location is great and is close to public transport.
The only negative that I would comment on is the lack of WIFI data. The daily limit allocated way inadequate.
Overall a nice place to stay.

This was our fourth time in the 7 most stressful months of our life that we have stayed at Earls Court for our daughter’s ongoing medical appointments at GCUH. Every single one of the staff at Earls continue to be absolutely amazing, nothing is a problem, so very helpful, kind, understanding and so flexible and we recommend Earls Court to be the best place to stay. Thank you a million times, you have made our stressful situation so much more bearable, Jane

Surprise visit to Qld without booked accommodation. Found this place on Booking. Com, The receptionist was friendly and informative. The room was old but fantastic. We were surprised at the size and cleanliness of it. Under COVID I’ve taken to cleaning and wiping down with disinfectant wipes but this place was clean. No black marks found. Quite even though it’s on the main road. Close to China town we walked. Lots of choices for food. We’d recommend and stay here again.

Yes it is free of charge for the room I have and very enclosed against the elements (Hail / Rain) which has sufficient space to park downstairs , Could not be more pleased with this as I have a prestige vehicle.
