“Convenient and clean”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

This Motel is in the accommodation strip south of Surfers Paradise. Whilst on the Gold Coast Highway there was little traffic noise, The Motel room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The manager was friendly and helpful, This has easy walking access to about 30 reasonably priced restaurants of a variety of styles. It is also a few minute walk to the beach, All in all a good deal for an overnight or few days visit.

We had 6 of us, worked out really well. Clean rooms, basic but not expensive so worth it.

We stayed in this motel for a night, and are very pleased to say we slept very well and found it very good value for money ($85 a night for 2 people). The room was clean and comfortable, the hotel had a pool but is also a 2 minute walk from the beautiful beach at Mermaid Waters, and close to the motorway (but not so close you hear any noise, we didn't hear a thing.) Across the road from the hotel is a large range of takeaways so everything is catered for, and it's only a 10 minute drive up to Surfers Paradise. Staff very helpful and we have no complaints.

I stayed one night on a quick business trip to Mermaid Beach. We arrived well before noon and were allowed to check into our rooms immediate ly which was great as we could offload our bags and freshen up. We were booked on an $85 super saver which was a real bargain. The rroms were clean and spacious. The bed was awesomely comfortable. The in room wifi was little expensive at $6 an hour or $20 per day, but it was easy to connect to and pay for and worked fantastically well, which is more than I can say for many other properties. The room also had ample power points to plug inb all the chargers needed for ipads, phones etc. Owners were friendly.

If you are after a clean decent place to stay for a reasonable price, I recommend this for you.

Room Tip: We were in rooms 9 & 10, on the second floor, which is walk up, but quite easy as I am sight and...

Flying into Gold Coast late at night before heading to northern NSW, I needed a convenient overnight stay in a location not too far from the airport and is easy to find, given the night I arrived being the eve of Gold Coast 600, I didn't have too many choices - I booked Camden Motor Inn because it looked best among the 3-4 motels I was presented with.

The owners were very kind to ring and find out where I was while enroute to the property, receipts and papers were prepared upon my arrival, thus, check in was smooth and easy.

My room was at the far end of the property and from the highway, being in a corner also means extra windows bringing in the breeze and not much noise from the highway. There were some supercar enthusiasts a few rooms down, drinking outside their room at the corridor/balcony but they were considerate enough to keep the noise level down and did not bother me at all.

The room was clean and comfortable, but the deco is what one would expect from a typical motel - outdated and tacky. The toilet/shower was also very clean, shower has good water pressure and prompt hot water. It also equipped with hair dryer, shaver socket and soap/shampoo/conditioner/bath gel were provided.

The small shopping centre has a 24/7 NightOwl convenient store and places to eat, although most were closed by the time I venture out after 9pm. Fortunately the Thai restaurant across the highway, almost opposite the motel was opened, called Baan Pong Thai. The food was excellent and the service prompt, it is probably one of the best Thai cuisine I had in Australia!

Service was friendly and helpful, good guide to local eateries.
Room was dated but tidy and clean, a little road noise can be expected from the highway.
Undercover car parking was a snug fit for a family car, but acceptable.
Location is good for that stretch of the coast, small shopping centre adjacent.

Being the weekend of the Gold Coast marathon accommodation for one night was pretty scarce, however I found Camden Motor Inn without too much trouble and booked one night on the net.

Despite the previous review, we found Lois and Ray to be very accommodating insofar as I did not order breakfast the previous evening but Lois was happy to provide me at short notice with a steaming bowl of porridge with real brown sugar and toast! which was delicious. The rooms were clean and comfortable and basically that's all you need and yes, we would stay there again.

Thanks Lois and Ray
