Owner (Patricia) insisted on charging my cc for the "holding fee". My card hadn't been activated and I had to ring the bank, I also forgotten my PIN (at this point in time she said "I haven't got time for this") so she had to do it manually & charged me a $2 fee for it. She was very abrupt...

Stayed there for one night. Location of the motel was very convenient with shops and restaurants around. Room was clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable. Patricia the owner of the motel was friendly and helpful. The only thing we did not like was the entrance of parking was narrow so parking was a bit difficult. Overall a pleasant motel to...

Stayed on a (too) brief visit to the area. The room was clean and conveniently located to dining, shopping and beaching. We were able to walk to nice restaurants, a bottle store, and a dairy (convenience store).

If you are after a comfortable bed and a quiet location, the Camden Motor Inn would suit your needs. Located close to shops, cafes and bus stop this small block of units is not far from the beautiful Mermaid Beach. The manager is friendly and made us feel very welcome. Would be happy to stay again in the future.

This motor inn is in such a great spot. The room was spotless and the beds comfortable. Better than your average motor in. Staff also vey friendly. I wouldn't bother spending a fortune on a Gold Coast resort when you can get this kind of value. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here based on the reviews - we weren't disappointed! Easy to find and although a small property, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Wifi is of good strength as we watch a lot of Movies on the internet. The room is clean and tidy. The hotel is getting a bit, but the staff make sure the rooms were...

Stayed there for a few nights with my wife. Room was big and the bed reasonably comfortable. Found it amazing that the rooms are only serviced every second day so towels must be hung up to dry and you make your own bed. Even milk for coffee was a situation whereby we were told that the first lot of milk...

Not only was the room clean, bed very comfortable, the rates were affordable. It is only a short walk to the beach and shops, as well as a short drive to the heart of Surfers Paradise and the airport, but the service from host Patricia was above what we expected. She greeted us with an infectious smile and instantly made...

I stayed at the Camden motor inn for three days and found the room to be very clean, management to be friendly and courteous. The rates were very reasonable and the location central to everything, I would certainly recommend the inn to my friends and would stay here again.

We had a great stay here with everything so close by. Everything was within walking distance, the room was amazingly cozy, and the manager, Patricia was lovely and loved to help out and have a chat! We were quite surprised by the quality of the room for the reasonably low price of it. The beds were comfy, the air conditioner...
