Stayed here for just one night to visit family. We had a one bed apartment on the 12th floor overlooking the beach with views to Cooloongatta. A wrap around balcony so views out over the river as well and down onto the pool area. The room was adequate for our needs although very old. The bathroom was a decent size with a bathtub as well. Quite a few chipped tiles etc but still it was clean and tidy. The kitchen facilities would be fine, it had a bench top 2 burner cooktop, a microwave, toaster, kettle and other kitchen utensils for basic cooking and eating. Tea coffee and sugar were supplied although the Bushells instant roast is not my favourite. Yuk. They also supplied a small long life milk in the fridge. The bed was a bit hard for our liking. Once the doors are locked of a night time we couldn't really hear much outside noise. There is airconditioning and a ceiling fan. I think the apartment would be a "hot box" in summer as it was very hot even now. A 15 min walk into Cavill Ave area. They have secure parking underneath. Did not use the pool area but looking at it it all seemed maintained well. The staff were very pleasant. Perhaps might stay here again, but probably look for something else but it suited our needs for one night.

The location is very close to the beach literally 1 to 2 minute walk. The property is a bit dated but very well maintained. The furniture in the room was old but still functional. We got was facing the beach so we got a perfect view from our balcony. It is a self contained unit so you can do cook if you prefer it that way. The beds were too soft for our taste but it was still okay. The TV channels were very few but Foxtel channel was awesome help as it plays very recent shown movies.

The highlight of this place is the small heated pool & the JACUZZI. We basically used it the whole time we were there. There is also a steam room & dry sauna and both are very clean. There is also a safe secure parking at the basement.

The only downside during my stay was the wifi as the signal was very weak from my room so and it is non-refundable so I suggest you check first if it the signal work before you buy the pre-paid voucher. There was also construction due to the 600 event so some of the roads are closed temporarily.

Overall it was a great stay as the place is moderately priced and almost everything in the room & the hotel facilities was functional.

Room Tip: The superior studio rooms have 1 queen & 1 single bed. Ask for the ones facing the beach.

Amazing views, decent balcony, air con, low prices, great steam room and sauna, 5 minute walk to shop and bottle shop , 10 minutes walk to the main drag, right on the beach. Great weekender, not the latest style but all well maintained clean and in good condition.

We had the best views in the resort. We stayed in a 9th floor Studio Room with a view of the beach at the front balcony, and a view of the city and river around the side of the balcony. The meal area was right in front of the window overlooking the beachfront, which was lovely.
Another good thing was the location. It's a 10 minute walk to Surfers Paradise, right along the beach. Or there is a bus stop just around the corner if you prefer not to walk.
Amenities were basic, but can't complain as the rates were very reasonable. I'd definitely go back to this place and will recommend this to anyone going to Gold Coast.

Room Tip: It's worth paying a little extra for a Studio Room in a higher floor, rather than opt for a cheap Standard Room.

We stayed at the Equinox for 3 nights, was nothing fancy, but clean and tidy and everything you need as a base on the Gold Coast. It was far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to everything. Beautiful view from our room whcih had a wrap around balcony, one side the ocean right in front and the other the canal abd cityscape behind us. The staff were friendly and helpful. Found the bed to be a little firm but I'm a bit fussy with beds, otherwise a great place to stay.

Hint ... for breakfast walk along the Esplanade to the Seascape??? cafe for $14 buffet breakfast or to the Surfers Paradise Surf Club for $10 buffet.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner suite ... great view
