I would never forget that night... Two flights back to Sydney were cancelled due to bad weather and we could not find any place to stay at night... It was so fortunate that we got the last room at La Costa to stay through online booking (with a reasonable price) in order to catch an early flight back home. When... More

We arrived in the morning for a day trip in Gold Coast before next morning flight to Sydney. Diane was very helpful sorting things out so that we can maximise our time there. We got a good cozy room at the front. We got breakfast which was useful considering we have to go early. They have some instant foods for... More

The motel is generally cosy. Very comfortable, clean beds, decent internet. We came in the morning and got early check in and breakfast just upon arrival. It was raining all day and we couldn't go outside. The hostess gave us good movies to watch and in the fridge there was some good food for affordable price.

We stayed here recently for one night before flying out of the Gold Coast Airport. The rooms are very well-appointed, comfortable and clean, with everything provided that you might need. It has a wonderful character too, with charming decor, but also nicely modernised. We had no complaints, other than the walls being rather thin, so we could hear snoring in... More

I had an overnight on the GC for work and wanted to be near the airport. I wish my stay had been longer, this place was so nice. Lovely decor, beautifully renovated room, such a nice style. What's more I had a breakfast basket provided to me (that was so big I couldn't even eat it all!) and a free... More

Such character and charm! Like stepping back in time but modernized and clean inside. The owners are wonderful. Incredible service, from the pick up to departure. Nice touch having instant food for purchase. Close to the airport and the beach. We loved it.

I stayed overnight (19 June 2016) with my mum at the La Costa motel due to its proximity to the Gold Coast Airport as we had an early flight the following day.

We had to book rooms for the day in between flights. The owner was fantastic at booking us rooms very last minute and making sure we were away from the road to rest. The rooms are very clean, refurbished and great decor. The little kitchenette and mini bar/breakfast basket was fantastic. Would definitely stay again when needing accomm near airport.... More

Loved this place, fantastic location beach around the corner and airport the other corner. Funky, groovy little rooms. Everything you need. Even DVD player in room. Comfortable bed. Great aircon so toasty and warm. Lovely friendly hosts. Highly recommend 😀
