Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Was noisy, not just during the day but when trying to sleep in the middle of the night too sadly. The fridge door was dirty & I definitely wasn't guilty as I always clean up after myself as I would at home staying anywhere else. The television wasn't tuned into all the main channels either which obviously was an issue with my regular viewing requirements.

Staff was extremely friendly, kind and helpful. The one thing that made our stay very pleasant was how clean and fresh was the room and the bed very comfortable. Yes, there are a couple of things missing like a comfortable chair to sit in and drawers to store your clothing but value for money was 9/10.

We stayed for 7 nights in room 27. It was very clean and perfect for what we needed, with a TV, fridge, kettle, toaster, fresh linen and towels, although the bed was quite uncomfortable. The room itself was a bit dark and dated but we can see the rooms are undergoing an upgrade so I’m sure this one will be done in time. The BBQ was great and always clean, the pool was brilliant and location to everything (including Coles 200m down the road) is perfect! The staff are all friendly and accommodating, and their little dog is gorgeous. If you are looking for awesome coffee we found a tiny caravan across the road at the Miami Caravan Park behind the surf club - amazing brew and lovely ladies!

Stayed 2 nights here whilst dealing with a family emergency. It was close enough and much less expensive than accommodation at my parents complex. ($349 a night was not feasible). Basic motel style room that can accommodate 3 people. Appliances include a toaster, kettle and microwave. There is a hairdryer in the bathroom. 3 mugs, 2 small plates and 2 each of knives and teaspoons. Forks and a tea towel would be useful. The lady in reception was lovely and even took my bag up to the room. Thank you. Your kindness was appreciated during a a very stressful time.

Room was nice and clean and close to all amenities. Shower had good water pressure. Check in was very easy. The only issue I had was that the walls were a bit thin and I heard the people next door come in quite late and heard them early in the morning .... doing what couples do if you know what I mean :) I would definitely stay in again but would ask for a quieter room next time ...

Neat clean basic room at reasonable price,close to all amenities however my skin was scratching all over from mosquito like bites even though there it was winter and no mosquitos The room looked clean so perhaps the mattresses need to be steam cleaned as there may be bed bugs present!

Handy location. Room was smelly, in need of a clean and very tired in appearance. Plenty of free parking, many restaurants nearby. Arriving outside of office hours was problematic. Did not enjoy our stay.
