Review of Tropicana Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Dec 2023
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

Reviewed 17 July 2022

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
