Browns at Broadbeach
Reviewed 14 May 2012

We stayed here with my husband and three kids. We were thrilled just to be able to find accommodation large enough to cater for a big family without breaking the bank! The location is fab. We could walk to the beach - great family beach behind the motel. Plus there's a pool with a spa!! we could walk to Pac Fair and convention centre.

The building is a little old but the rooms have just been renovated so very modern inside plus we got the pay t.v on a great flat screen so certainly kept the kids entertained.
Don't be deceived by the exterior definitely clean and spacious.

Would certainly recommend to a family.

I stayed here for an initial two nights but extended my stay for a third after I realised how the thick walls of this 40 year old motel provided good insulation against traffic noise, something that many more modern concrete slab buildings do not.

Prior to arrival I paid a $50 credit card deposit. which is something that not all Australian moteliers request.

My room was above vacant space, a relatively unusual feature for an Australian motel.

While the bed was comfotable, most other features were basic. As is too often the case in Australian hotels, lighting was fairly poor.

The bathroom was standard for its era: nothing to write home about.

The television was a flatscreen model with pay TV channels available (for free of course).

I did not have breakfast.

We stayed in this motel for one night in August 2011. The bed was comfortable, the room was reasonably clean, and quite roomy - and it was quiet. However that is about all it had going for it. There was paint (large patches - 2-3 feet wide) peeling off the walls, the stairs up to the room (on the first floor) were very rusted all over and several layers of paint were all at various stages of peeling off.

There was lino on the floors, very basic amenities in the room (ie one very small piece of soap for two of us - no shampoo etc), furniture was very old and worn - and for the price that we paid ($115) which was for room only, it was pretty dismal and very disappointing. We only stayed there because it was an emergency situation and we needed somewhere to stay just for one night - a lot of places only take minimum of two nights - and they are twice the price per room anyway. It was hard to believe that they could charge what they did for what we got.

Booking in was another drama in itself - we rang the bell several times over a 10 minute period before anyone came near us - the place was wide open so we didn't go during an out of hours time. Directions to the room were very limited and we couldn't find the room at all. We ended up having to come back to the office and ask the lady to actually show us where we were to go as the rooms did not seem to be in sequence - only some of them. Parking the car was another drama - while there are spaces down the back of the complex for parking, you need to get there early to get your spot, otherwise you could miss out - as there is not much room for turning there.

I certainly wouldn't stay there again - it seemed like they did not rate maintenance at the place too highly at all. It certainly needs a major renovation project on it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room down the back - it will be away from the main highway and a lot quieter.
