We stayed one night at Tropicana after seeing a show that Jupiters Casino and it was exactly what we were looking for. Great location, friendly staff, and a comfy bed. I would definitely recommend it to others

Reviewed 23 September 2013

We recently stayed at Tropicana Motel on a Saturday night and we were impressed on how well kept/maintained the place is - not sure how old it is, but it seems to be pretty new. The room is spacious and comfortable, there's a flat screen TV, air con, mini fridge, microwave and cutlery/plates. The bathroom is also spacious, although the mirror is very small.
Everything is spotless clean, and staff at the reception was friendly and helpful.
It is very close (10 min walk) to Jupiter Casino and all restaurants in Broadbeach (don't miss out Valentino's restaurant).
The only thing that may be a problem for some is the noise, because it's right on the Gold Coast Hwy, but we were so tired after a day at the beach that we didn't hear a thing.
Highly recommended!

We recently stayed at the Tropicana as a last minute decision as we were going to watch the football at Metricon. The lady at reception was very friendly helping us to find transport to the game, she went out of her way to assist. It isn't very often you receive this level of friendliness. After checking in we went up to our room and we were pleasantly surprised at the modern décor and the cleanliness. The room also had a microwave, plates and cutlery with a big flatscreen and new airconditioner. The only small negative was no austar, but that is very minor! We will definitely stay again, thankyou! It is also walking distance to Pacific Fair and Draculas!

After a terrible experience with management at the Broadbeach Towers, myself and another couple I had just met needed to find alternative accommodation at short notice.
We arrived at the Tropicana on a Sunday evening to find helpful management who gave us both a great price. The rooms have all that you expect from a motel and were bright, renovated and very clean. The bedding was comfortable, the tv huge, and the room was stocked with crockery and cutlery which was a pleasant surprise. The air con was very efficient too.
The Tropicana is conveniently located across from Pacific Fair shopping centre. Highway noise can be an issue for light sleepers but I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

A clean and well kept motel on the inside, and renovated, more parking would be better. There is no visitor parking and the owner wont hesitate to approach your visitors rudely to advise them of this. We also were reminded by a loud rude voice at the door that check in is at 10am. The door was closed and it was 9am, highly unnecessary. Did not appreciate this at all. We had extra guests stay and in the morning we were rudely informed by the owner hiding in the laundry and yelling aloud that its 20 dollars per person for the extra people. We happily paid, and while mentioning the inappropriate instances, it was not taken too well and further rudeness was expressed by the male owner. I will NEVER stay here again purely because they were rude. But I would recommend a stay here for affordability and locality, but only if you can tolerate rudeness.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Tropicana from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day. The room was small but had everything in it that you would need and both the bedroom and bathroom were finished to a great standard. It was clean and whilst it wasn't brand new, there were modern appliances such as a huge LG TV, and a very responsive air conditioning unit, which were perfect.
The hotel is right on The Gold Coast Highway, but there weren't any issues with traffic noise from the road. It is very close to the beach, and after 40 minutes of walking along the sand, you are at Surfers Paradise. For us, the proximity was perfect as Mermaid/Broadbeach beach is so much quieter.
The couple that own this place are amazing. The check-in was quick and they were able to advise us about places to go. There was 2 mince pies, 2 chocolate santas and a Christmas card waiting for us in the room, which was a lovely touch. Very simple, but very effective! On Christmas Day, they set up the BBQ for us next to the pool (VERY kind) so that we could make our dinner. There wasn't any maid service whilst we were there because of the holiday, but considering how clean the room was when we arrived, I should imagine that it would have been great.
The only slight issue, was having to do washing up in the bathroom sink, as there wasn't anywhere to put things to dry, but there really isn't anywhere to put another sink so it's really nothing to complain about. Just bear that in mind if you are planning to have picnics etc.

I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit The Gold Coast, and I would definitely go back there.

We needed accommodation for one night to attend a function so checked in late just in time to drop our bags and head out. Speedy service by the hosts and we were on our way. Standard size "drive up" motel room, but immaculately presented and spotless. Efficient air conditioner worked a treat on what was a still night. Large shower with excellent water pressure. Close to all amenities and only 250 metres easy walk to the beach. Perfect place for an overnighter if your priority is comfort and convenience rather than space.
