Rooms have ensuite, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, tv, and aircon. There is a small pool on site and the beach is about 200 metres away. Off street...

We stopped by Tropicana motel for a night stay whilst we were travelling through the Gold Coast. We had 2 cars as we were relocating, both my partner and myself. The motel owners advised us that they had a car space shortage 15 spots for 17 rooms and there were no street parking nearby. We had no choice but to...

Parking is rarely an issue - 15 parks for 17 rooms and plenty of on street parking. It is only a problem when someone chooses to ignore the rules that were gently explained when you checked in. Selfish guests aside, we do have an occasional problem with members of the public deciding to use up our parking spaces to the...

Very impressed with my stay- the room was clean, bathroom modern & any required amenities. The hosts were lovely and welcoming. Very quiet even being on the highway. So close to pacific fair (dangerous) I would return

Thank you so much for taking the time to review. We try very hard to keep the property up to scratch, but being a stand alone place, really rely on feed back from our guests to keep on the same track. We hope to see you again sometime.

Clean, tidy property. Close to all Gold Coast has to offer , yet still a quiet place to stay. Very friendly people that run the Motel. Will always look to see if this place has a vacancy before we look anywhere else.

Can't complain about anything, really nice! Don't guess it may be noisy, actually you may not easily hear trucks. You can walk to the business or shopping center in like 15 mins. And it's 5 mins walk to the sea, as well.
