“Dodgy and dirty.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Booked a 2 bedroom room but was put in a one bedroom single room. When I queried she said it was still the same price and same
Amount of beds. My argument went nowhere. Room was very grubby. All the walls were dirty and there was mould on bathroom walls. Stunk of stale smoke. No fire alarm installed. Had to ask for another towel as there was only two. Had 4 people booked. Both screen door and glass door were hard to lock with key and looked like they had previously been jimmed open!
Would not reccomend at all! Glad we got out alive!!

On the Gold Coast, it is not easy to find accommodation for 1 night only. Browns is in a convenient location, walking distance to the casino and the convention centre. It is clean but very basic. Quite an old place. The family room at the back was very quiet, thankfully. Probably a bit overpriced for what you get.

Browns wasn't my first choice. As our trip fell during school holidays, even though I was booking more than a month ahead, there wasn't a lot to choose from. We booked 2 family rooms, which were basic, but the only toilet in the rooms was in the ensuite, in the double bedrooms. We were only staying overnight, so not concerned with minimal kitchen facilities. The location was ideal for our purposes (being walking distance to Dracula's), but I wouldn't choose to stay there, if I wanted something really nice. It was exactly adequate for our needs.

Due to the last minute booking, we did not manage to book the accommodation we were planned to stay. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, My friends and I decided to stay in the Family unit with kitchenette for a night. The unit had 2 single beds and one queen size bed in the room with all the basic room amenities,similar as what the website showed.The room had a small fan heater and 3 extra blankets which kept in the wardrobe. There was only one toilet in the unit which is the downside.They provided only basic kitchen utensils and charged $20 for hotplate and pan.Therefore, we brought our own electrical stove.Buy your own washing liquid if you are planning to cook.Everything was tidy and clean,except for the extra pedestal stand fan in the room. The front grille of the fan was covered with a thick layer of dust, though it was not affected our stay in the unit as we did not need it.Another drawback was that you have to empty the bin before you checked out, otherwise they will charge you.Well, some people might think it is not a big deal to empty the bin.Overall, we are quite satisfied with our stay in Browns Motel. The location is great and convenient if you have a car. Around 25mins drive to the airport and 10 to 15mins drive from/to surfer paradise. Will think of going back.

Room Tip: Family unit Room 1 is on the ground floor, nice and quiet unit but it depends on who are staying at...

Reviewed 19 May 2014

My husband and I stayed here on Saturday night as we wanted something cheap and close to the Casino. It was certainly both of those things but not much else. The connecting door between our room and our neighbours could have been made of tissue it was so thin. There was a group of young guys staying in and while they weren't being particularly loud, we could hear every word of their conversations as well as every cough or burp. Not pleasant.
The room itself was clean enough except for dark mildew stains in the bathroom. The only two glasses were mismatched and a bit grimy looking but I washed them out in the bathroom so we could use them.
The men on reception were very pleasant and did let me know the aircon wasn't working but that there was a fan, which there was.
I would recommend this motel for guys on a big night out on the Gold Coast who just need a place to shower and crash.

Reasonable price, great location, quite, helpful management, safe location and clean pool. I was in town for a leadership conference. The fifteen min walk to the GCC Centre was, pacific fair five min over the road. No shortage of great places to eat out if your not into preping something in the room.
