I stayed here in early November with my husband who booked this motel last minute. To be 100% honest I would never return. The rooms are noisy and extremely small. We could hear conversations in the next room and general traffic noise. It wasn't 'relaxing' by any means and not what he expected based on other reviews and photos. It's...

Stayed at La Costa over the Christmas period and really enjoyed the feel of this period correct circa 1950-1970's establishment. John and Diane and family are excellent hosts and offer the public a taste of ' days gone by ' in this Motel with all the modern internal facilities for relaxation and leisure. It parlayed beautifully with our Tweed River...

We chose to stay here after a late flight into Coolangatta. Diane picked us up from the airport and was very friendly and welcoming. The room was spotless and well appointed. Our deal included a continental breakfast - cereal, toast and juice. The motel is only a block from the beach so we were able to walk along the beach...

A nice little place run by a very friendly couple. The location is ok, a little noisy due to being located close to the airport and a main highway. The room we stayed in (deluxe room) was clean and tidy but found it quite small, especially the bathroom was very small and difficult for more than one person to use...

What an amazing cute beach motel! I would highly recommend making La Costa Motel a stop on the end of your trip to surfers paradise. You get to get away from the city and stay at an adorable beach motel right near the beach. The best part is,it's a 10 min walk to the airport. They also provide a shuttle...

Dear Jayahbird11, Thankyou for your review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. December is a busy time and although not many guests drive to the motel (due to the free airport shuttles), parking can be a problem in the area. We have a few driveways to park in at the motel and we also have next door where...

Very cool set up, with a retro feel, we stayed one night when we missed our flight to Melbourne. Dianne came and collected us from the airport as we were stranded, very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. 2 minutes walk to the beach.
