I very much disliked this hotel. Service was horrible and extremely poor. In the bed of the hotel, I found a condom wrapper, that I noticed when I was going to go to bed. The fridge seal was broken, shower was moldy and gross, and the hot water did not work. I absolutely do not recommend going here to stay....

By far the worse property I have ever stayed in. If you care about your safety and the safety of your family, DO NOT stay here. This place is only good for schoolies, drunks and those who rent rooms by the hour. Since you are reading this review, you care about your accomodation. Spend the extra money and keep your...

After reading the reviews on several sites incl. tripadvisor, we tried to find another place to sleep where we could park our campervan as well. Most places were fully booked, didn't have a parking for a campervan or wouldn't do 2 nights only. Or simply way too expensive. So, since there were no other options, we tried our luck in...

Sometimes I thought I was going to get punk'd or something. The worst place I've ever stayed in, fridge seal was broken, pubes in beds, the place smelt of wee and many other disgusting things, the lock on the deck door could have been the easiest lock in history to be broken. The only good thing was the location. I'm...

I stayed 3 nights between christmas and new years eve. Considering the location and busy season, price was good. If you are not planning to stay much at the hotel and want a place with great location, then this place is good. It also has car parking which is great. Room has horrible decoration and looks very old: blue wall,...

By no means luxury but if you need a place to stay for a night or so then it's great. We (three backpackers, two girls, one guy) couldn't find any room in any hostel so opted for Surfers City Motel. We went in with very low expectation after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and were pleasantly surprised! Ok so you won't...

Faulty towers from the start! I can't not believe how much is changed to stay in this place. We stayed for a single night before a big deep sea fishing trip. It seemed that the entire GC was sold out...no one seemed to actually no why... The rooms are just funny...shag, tangerine carpet, peach walls, the balcony door does not...

We are from Brisbane and we almost drove back home rather than stay the night, and I really wish we had. It was seriously revolting. Only if you are a homeless person or backpacker you might find this place bearable. It is such a dump. We saw very misleading photos on wotif when we booked it. Every time we go...

This is the most disgusting vile place I've ever attempted to stay in,we paid for 2 nights and stayed for a few hours before leaving. I would not even give this place one star. This place looks it's ready for demolition, the horrible stench of bleach hits you as soon as you open the door. The doors looks like someone...

It was the Queen’s birthday long weekend in Queensland on 30 Sep to 1 Oct this year. The accommodation at this time was limited and the price was raised. I booked a double room through booking.com at the price of $80. It was quiet good to find a room at the heart of surfers within a low budget($80) at a...
