Reviewed 18 November 2015

Management were fantastic and could not have been more helpful and even though basic, the Sunburst had everything we wanted during our one night stay. We absolutely loved being just around the corner from a little supermarket and there was also takeaway shops there too in the complex. The BBQ by the pool was great for us and it had everything we needed eg alfoil, oil... and the rooms had adequate supplies of plates and cutlery. The rooms are set back from the main road so we didn't hear a thing during the night. Booking through Booking.Com months ago saw us get a sensational price. Even though basic, you don't need anything more than somewhere to lay your head when you are at the Gold Coast getting out and about.

Room Tip: Supermarket is just around the corner so fantastic for cooking meals on the BBQ by the pool; there a...

Recently spent a week there, as it was close to family I was visiting. Also due to the fact that a lot of accommodation was fully booked around that area. Advertised as 'self contained', cups/plates etc were available, but only a microwave. Bathroom tiles cracked and dirty. Towels were changed once, the sheets were never changed, the floor never swept, the shower and toilet never cleaned. The BBQ facilities were filthy.
The Sunburst Motel has well and truly passed it's used by date.

My teenagers and I stayed here for 6 nights in October. This is a perfectly fine place to stay and in a location that is a great for doing both the beaches and the theme parks. The staff at this motel are so lovely and the manager goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy your time and the room is kept nice and clean with extra towels when you need it. The free wifi was a big bonus to us as well. This is a basic 3 star motel that is in a handy location, it was clean and safe and the manager is lovely. I would stay here again and recommend this to all travelers.

We needed a place to stop over before continuing on to our holiday. Not always easy to find accommodation for two adults and three kids where we can all fit in one room. The Sunburst fit the bill perfectly. The family room was clean, tidy and comfortable and had everything we needed for our overnight stay. The staff were also very friendly.
