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.

For the festive season, this is possibly 1 of the cheapest deals available!! It was excellent none the less, had all needs meet & was expecting due to this time of year the deposit to take longer to process but it didn't so everything has worked out very well here & it's a location perfectly based near the shops - public transport too. So 100% recommend staying here

Stayed for 2 night at this motel, communication with staff was very clear & easy via email & txt. The room is exceptionally clean & despite being on the highway, not too noisy at all. I felt safe as a solo traveler & everything I needed was within a 15 minute walk. I would recommend it to anyone needing a quick budget stay in Broad Beach. Only things to note was no duvet on the bed, I used a blanket from the cupboard & the bedside lamp needed a new light bulb.

My partner and I had a Christmas party to attend and decided to get a room here as a place to crash as it was a lot more convenient and cheaper than getting an Uber home. We didn’t expect much for the price we paid but it definitely exceeded our expectations. The rooms were really clean and the staff were super friendly, welcoming and kindly allowed us to park two cars as we had both driven separately straight from work. Really great location too right across the road from Pacific Fair and right by the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here overnight, room was very clean and had everything we needed, looks like it has recently been renovated and the water pressure in the shower was awesome. Great location with an easy walk to cafes for breakfast, less than five mins walk to the beach and 10 mins into restaurants and Broadbeach.

Recently had an overnight stop here. The motel is located on the main Gold Coast Highway opposite the Pacific Fare Shopping Centre. It is walking distance to all bars and restaurants in the Broadbeach area. The gentlemen at the check in counter was lovely. Very friendly and check in was very quick. I had s parking spot and I was allocated an upstairs room. The building doesn’t look much from the outside however I was pleasantly surprised when I entered my room. The carpet was new and the bathroom had been renovated. The showers was very large and even had s pull out clothes Line in it . There was a hairdryer and toiletries . There was cupboards and drawers in the main area and I was surprised to find a microwave plates cups cutlery washing up liquid and a t towel . There was s jug and milk in the garden fridge. There was s selection of teas coffees and sugar. The room had aircon and a tv with Foxtel. For the price and facilities provided it was excellent and I will stay again

The Tropicana motel at Mermaid Beach doesn't look like much on the outside, but on the inside it's a different story. We stayed for 2 nights. The room we were in was recently refurbished (the website says all the rooms have been redone) it was exceptionally clean, the beds were very comfortable and the shower pressure was fantastic. Tropicana is a short walk from the Broadbeach restaurant hub and directly across the road from Pacific Fair.

We stayed here in February, 2019. We had no reservations but pulled in and we're treated like family. We got a room with more beds than we needed, but with a break on the price. The staff was great - when my wife mentioned that we needed to buy an ice chest and beach towels, they offered up their own. Staff was very helpful in suggesting placed for dinner.

I was amazed at the cleanliness of the room, great helpful people as I was lost and needed directions the next day, they went on google, printed out a helpful map so I could find my way once more. It is close to everything you would want to visit. Would go there again and have told all my friends about how clean it was, how helpful the owners were. Irene

Booked a last minute 2 night stay, price was ideal, location perfect, staff absolutely lovely. Rooms reasonably modern and exceptionally clean. The Motel is on a main road, but noise was not an issue (which I thought it would be). Only small down side was that I found the bed hard, but in saying that I’m used to a soft bed. Would definitely stay here again. BIG thumbs up.
