We have stayed in many hotels/motels at airports, and this is a league of its own. Not a single bad thing I could say about this place, it was totally spotless, with actual reasonable prices on mini fridge stock. Tea and coffee was included with fresh milk instead of the tiny cartons you normally get which is a nice little...

In addition to the proximity to the Gold Cost Airport (free return transfer is provided), La Costa Motel is also a few steps away from the Bilinga beach. If you want to visit Gold Coast city center you just have to take a bus (the stop is very close the hotel) and after that to take a tram at Broadbeach....

What a find. A Fully Renovated, Spotlessly Clean Motel. We stayed upstairs in a very spacious flat with separate bedroom, large living area and very modern kitchen. Original timber floors add to the character. The private north facing deck has sea views and would be ideal to sun bake or have a wine with friends. If you need to be...

What a surprise this place is, clean comfortable, modern and comfy. If you're in the area and need a place to relax this is recommended. Free airport shuttles too, okay the Gold Coast Airport is only a 5 min drive but hey it's the little things!

I was in Room 3, with a little small 'garden' outside where there was a small bench and 2 chairs. I brought my red wine out and enjoyed the cool air at night while sipping the Shiraz. The room had a small kitchenette and we could fix a little supper.

Stayed here overnight as I was waiting for my pick up to go to a Resort and was very happy with my accommodation. My room was clean, spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. The beach is a short walk away and walking south towards Kirra are some lovely cafes. The reception service was excellent as well.

This is lovely motel, clean and comfortable. It is walking distance from the beach and in a quiet area. I will say the room was small. Staying more than a day would have required some organization. We were tripping over our luggage and each other. That said, this place is adorable!
