Can't say enough good things about this spot. The rooms are spacious and tidy, equipped with en suite, TV, air con, toiletries and tea/coffee. It is a quick stroll down the road to the beautiful beach. Across the road is restaurants and a 24 hour night owl. Would recommend staying here so much and can't wait till I return. Jac...

If you want a great location this is the place. The bus stop to Surfers is any 5 minutes away. On the return journey it is a minute away. Walk out of the motel and cross a small road and there is an strip of restaurants and places to eat, even a bottle shop. The Night Owl (like a 7...

The staff was friendly and welcoming. The tiny pool onsite was very disappointing to see but the beach is only a 5 min walk away which was fabulous. Close to Pacific Fair shopping centre. The bathroom was a bit smelly and the carpets could do with some new ones but we had clean sheets and a nice bed to sleep...

Mould in shower, dirty carpets, clothes left in wardrobe from previous guest.Left a review on their Facebook page which they deleted. Very poor customer service. Only 9 cars had on site parking approximately 20 rooms in motel. On street parking was limited to 15 mins. Definitely do not recommend this motel

I have noticed your review and thought I would let you know that Jac and I took over Camden on 28.2.2017. We have worked hard to make the rooms immaculate. Yes we have 15 rooms and 13 carparks which normally works fine as not everyone has a car. The onstreet parking is also good in both Tamborine Street and Gold...

With a medical procedure appointment in a nearby suburb, Camden Motor Inn was a very good choice for us. Arriving well before check in time, I asked if we could leave our luggage somewhere till we could get back and check in. We received our keys to the room and put our luggage inside. The room was a standard older...

We stayed in June 2016. This is a classical motel, not very modern, but well maintained. Clean, comfortable, not far from the center (approx 10 minutes drive) and also from the beach. The pool was clean too. The wifi was good.

The lady at front desk was very polite and extremely helpful. The location wasnt too bad. Close to eateries and the beach. The room was average. If only it was sound-proof as i could hear everything going on in the rooms around me, meaning I got no sleep. The room was mouldy and the bed uncomfortable. Priceline.com classes Camden Motor...

We stayed 2 nights and that was enough, It was so noisy and very run down. The bathroom door wouldn't close properly and when it did it would get stuck, the taps kept leaking and the shower head drizzled. The pool was clean but the spa looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while.
