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.

Our room was clean and tidy and very well equipped with everything we required. The bed was very comfortable, shower was nice and hot and the motel was easily found on our drive into Torquay. Also close to town centre and points of interest. Check in was easy.

Clean, bright and spacious. Bed was comfortable, well equipped kitchenette, very quiet! It was a little chilly the day we arrived so we were offered a small area heater to supplement the mini split heater/air conditioner that was already in the room. Good advice given about grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Would absolutely stay again!

We stayed here overnight, the room was clean and the beds comfortable. The motel is in a good location. It is an easy walk into town to get something to eat. The reception staff where welcoming and friendly to deal with.

I haven't written a review in a long time and this one compelled me to do so. We stayed at this place during the Rip Curl Pro and suffice to stay I will never stay here again. It is pretty gross. The bathrooms are really gross. They have a spa bath with shower over top... I didn't even want to stand up, let alone sit down in the spa bath. The bathrooms needs renovating asap. Also the beds were uncomfortable. It was clean and the lady on the front desk nice. This is an only if there is nothing else option.

Good basic welcoming motel. No frills but surprisingly roomy. Large adjoining room with Tv & eating area. Bed comfortable! Shower over spabath. Climb 2 steps to get in. Pool sparkling. Ideal for kids. Good length for swimming. Manager incredibly helpful and kind. 4 min drive to Torquay shops. Ideal location. Recommend.

A comfortable motel. The room was clean and plenty of room to move around. The laundry was available to guests with a line to hang your washing on. The car parking is okay except where you are near the garden structure as it is a bit tight to get out with a vehicle in space behind. Good location. Has a pool but we did not go in too cold. Nice place to stay for a couple of days.

Clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. Good location, close to the beach and the casual walk-in resturants that line it. Staff were kind and honest. Left a pair of earrings in the room when I left, and they contacted me immediatly and made sure I got them back.

The Tropicana is nothing flash, but it is quiet and comfortable if that’s what you’re after. Even though it’s on the main road, I found the room very quiet. The room itself was a bit dated, but had everything you’d expect to find and the beds were comfortable. It’s about a 15 min stroll down to the waterfront, which was a good way to stretch the legs after a long drive.

A pretty standard kind of motel experience overall. It's reasonably well located, clean and comfortable overall and despite the proximity to the main highway it was pretty quiet - even with a room looking right at the road. It's a little old school in terms of decor, has a few bumps, knocks and scratches but nothing dramatic. It's still well maintained overall. I have no complaints at all and would happily stay here again.
