“Very ordinary basic motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

This motel is very basic. The double bed was small and the pillows hard. Parking was very limited. TV was limited to a few local channels. However having said that , it was just a very short walk ( maybe 200metres ) to the Coolangatta shops, bars, restaraunts etc. We stayed only for the one night prior to catching a plane. The guy at reception was very helpful, arranging a taxi for our early morning departure. The price too was fair for what we received. We would stay here again but for only for convenience not for a holiday.

First entered the room at night, to find the balcony door wide open which later became obvious that it was an attempt to air out the stale musty smell. The bathroom was dirty, the toilet role was balanced on the towel rack due to the holder being broken. The towels would be good to sandpaper back an old wooden table, the beds weren't made up in the morning, there was limited parking and we were heckled by people in the adjoining building, there was a "chux wipe" supplied instead of a washer, the bed was extremely uncomfortable with legs missing, the pillows were as flat as an A4 sheet of paper, there was only one spare blanket provided, there were wires hanging down from between my door frame and the building. Truely a joke this place is called a resort......

We stayed at Bombora1 night . We had booked for 2 nights but the room we stayed was terrible so we left the next day. At first we could not get into the room unless we picked up the door with both hands. We then got into the room to find the smell was terrible ( swet and urine). The beds we comfortable however when we fliped one of the pillows over it had blood on it. The tv reception was bad and we could only get one channel. Very dissappointed

We booked online at Last Minute.com from memory. $45.00/night for five nights. If you are looking for value for money accomodation this is great. Overlooks a park and our room on second floor overlooked the pool area.

The room is simple, clean, bar fridge is stocked (unusual in this price range), big enough to be comfortable with a useable balcony, the shower area is relatively small {especially if you want to share :-) } but still useable.

Service was fantastic, no feeling that you only payed minimum price so no service which I often see at other places (thanks for the vase guys). They even still changed towels/emptied bins in that price. I have stayed in $100 hotels in this region that are not as good/clean as this.

They definately aim at the seniors, I am in my early forties but lots of younger people whilst we were there, whom were all well behaved.

3.5 stars from me excellent value for money I will be staying again at rates like these.

good service fast, booked through Wotif.com ($40/day 7 Nights great deal) so just handed over credit card details.
I was on 3rd floor overlooking pool area with balcony & looking out at a memorial park.
Nice clean room with Air Con & ceiling Fan. Fine to leave wire sliding door open at nice & feel the breeze at night. Good size bed & Flat Screen TV. (Nice quiet area too)
Small fridge in room with drinks there at bar prices & Kettle.
Just 3 minutes walk to Coolangatta main street & 4 minutes to the main Beach as well.
Great Quiet spot & great value for your bucks.
Cheers
