Reviewed 16 October 2013

We arrived to this place during dark so it was extremely
difficult to find. Their driveway is literally a swing straight off
an extremely busy and chaotic round about.
You need a good eye to catch the motel sign and turn off quick enough.

It's an old style motel made of old brick.
The rooms are pretty decent and have abit of space in them. It
serves it purpose as a place to sleep if youre looking to
spend time at the theme parks nearby.
Things provided:
Mini bar fridge
Toaster
Small TV
Tea/Coffee/Milk
Water
Microwave
Little plates
A mini dinner table to eat at.

We didnt find the owner very helpful. We picked up an odd tired vibe from him but all in all
he did his job. We were never offered transport via the courtesy bus when we asked how far it was to get to Movie world as we openly suggested we might have unfortunately to grab a taxi.
Having someone helpful and offering some knowledge about transport and location services
would of made a huge difference!

The pool was lovely for the kiddies and the chinese restaurant on the top floor was an absolute treat. We loved the food and had plenty left over to store in the min fridge!
However ordering breakfast from the motel counter
(Bacon and Eggs - around $11)
I received what looked like overcooked microwaved eggs served with cold bacon.
(Will provide a photo)
I was abit disappointed as I work full time in a restaurant and expected something at least edible. BUT the ladies who served it were polite. Wish I could say the same thing about the owner.

The place is clean and comfortable and pleasant.
The traffic outside is loud and crazy though.
I have a mixed reaction with this place.
It was good but not great. Id also like to add that the provided picture
of the room above is definitely NOT from this motel.

Amazing ! you have taken a photo of bacon & eggs and posted on the web ! and you are an expert because you work as a waitress at a small café in South West Rocks. I spent 14 years in industrial catering and once worked on a project where we provided 30,000 meals per day ! (Irian Jaya ). The photo you have taken it is quite obivious the Bacon & eggs have been sitting on your table for at least 2 hours prior to you taking the photo.

If your planning a theme park break then this motel would be hard to beat for price, service and location. I would rate the staff at this facility as one of the best our family have encountered anywhere. Normally I would be reluctant to eat at motel restaurants but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of our chinese meal.

The Motel was FANTASTIC! the staff were very helpful and most certainly had a high smile on there faces! Honestly was so caring to us! The motel itself is in a very continent location and i found it to be very useful to us especially that we had no transport! We went to dreamworld of a Saturday and we bought our tickets from these guys and it saved us a few extra dollars from the trip and saved us lining up in the ques over at dreamworld!! The kids loved the pool couldn't get them to leave the joint after! The managers were very helpful, kind and caring to us, its like they took us under there wing. The rooms are not your typical sized rooms you get but they are very big and spacious! We had been silly to fly all the way down to the Gold Coast on a Saturday to find that we did not book any accommodation! We went to a few places up and down the place but they were all to expensive!! Luckily we found this place which was very affordable for a family of 5! The onsite Chinese restaurant was FANTASTIC could have eating it all night!!! Will defiantly be back again!!!!

The inn was clean, and it had everything as far as initial expectations were concerned, but what stood out to me, was the exceptional customer service provided by the staff.
They were always willing to help you out and met you every time you crossed paths with a smile.
if you are looking for a friendly family experience, close to the theme parks, particularly Dreamworld, then I reccommend this motor inn above all else in the area.

Had a double room booked for the night after Dreamworld. It was so dark, cramped and dingy, we departed after 30 minutes! Not sure where the photo above was taken but it wasn't in our room. Lacking windows and full of outdated decor, it felt more like a prison. The pool area outside was nice though. Very hard to find as it's virtually impossible to see of you are coming off the roundabout towards Dreamworld. Here's what the website says:
"Your Motel holiday oasis in the heart of the Gold Coast Theme Parks(Oasis??). Situated 17km north of Surfers Paradise and 48 km south of Brisbane. Our deluxe(Not anymore ... definitely false advertising. Dark Brick has never been deluxe!) Motel with spacious (NOT!) single, double, twin or family rooms will ensure your stay with us is most enjoyable. Room features include; reverse cycle air conditioner (30 years old and very dusty) , wireless broadband internet connection, direct dial phone, colour T.V. (A tiny flat screen mounted on the wall that you need binoculars to view), digital alarm clock, tea/coffee making facilities. A disabled unit is centrally located in the Motel. Our magnificent onsite (Even darker that the rooms!) fully licensed Chinese Restaurant provides meals seven nights a week at very reasonable prices.

The only issue I agree on is the photo ! I did not provide this photo to Trip Advisor ! I am like most motels and don't agree with their review system ! You are a classic example ! All the positive reviews received are from Guests who stay 3, 4, 5 nights. All the negative reviews are like yourself who stay one night ! I see you say " Dark and Dingy " How wrong you are ! There is a front door and huge back sliding doors at rear ! Seven lights in the room ! Need your eye sight checked !

Great motel to stay at if you are visiting one of the theme parks which we did. We also went to the Outback Spectatular show so the motel has a shuttle (for a small fee) to and from the venue so it was easier and we could enjoy ourselves more without having to worry about who was safe to drive. The motel room was basic with basic amentities, a bit rundown but was fine to stay in as we were only there at night anyway.
This is our second stay here and the service is always friendly.

The photograph pictured is definitely not taken at this motel....Dark room that was long overdue for a renovation, carpet was threadbare, ill fitting bedspreads, over all horrible, bleak room that backed on to a very major highway. Good job we were just here overnight...would not come back nor recommend.

You are correct, I did not provide this photo, I am like most motels and don't agree with the Trip Advisor review system and don't participate in any of their promossions etc, I don't believe any guest can write a negative review like you have when they only stay one night ! All the posivtive comments are those who are longer stays
