staying at the browns”
I really enjoyed my stay at Browns at Broadbeach Motel. It is an old hotel that has been refurbished. The staff were helpful and friendly. The groundfloor king room was spacious with a kitchen, spa and king size bed. My only problem was the directions were incorrect. It is just past Mermaid Avenue and not Alexandra Street as listed on the map and I had difficulty finding the place.
Easy access to Pacific Fair shopping centre and the Gold Coast Convention Centre. Facilities are clean and, although a little older, well maintained and functional. Rooms are spacious with good ventilation through windows on both sides of the building. Didn't see any sign of the continental breakfast mentioned on the web site and by the time I realised it was too late at night. In fact there was very little information in the room about facilities other that ads for nearby restaurants. Unfortunately I had a party 5 rooms along and although the management managed to get the music turned down, drunks have very little idea of how much noise is acceptable. Always a risk in a reasonable priced motel.
Central location ”
We stayed at browns for the night after a show. Rooms were spacious and clean and a pool is available if you don’t want to get sand through everything. Right on the highway so if your a light sleeper and not used to the noise, you may struggle. If you struggle getting off of low things the bed in room 12 isn’t for you. My partner and I were find but if I was to bring my mum, she wouldn’t of been able to get out of the bed. Other than that, brown on Broadbeach was a great spot for us. Staff we met in the morning were nice and friendly.
The floor was slippery ”
It was a good stay at Browns at Broadbeach motel, the only lack is that we should ask the reception for the iron and hairdryer also the key to turn on the AC (they were not provided in the room) and the floor was slippery when we came in, I believe it was because of the humidity and the room was lack of air ventilation but we were glad that we were given the key for the AC so that the room's humidity could be controlled.
basic but clean accomodation”
Booked a twin room for Broadbeach Blues Festival weekend. Don't expect to have hair dryers, bedside lamps, soaps and shampoos in the bathroom or views of the sea. I had to ask for a light bulb to be replaced and for the beside lamp, but that was no drama, as long as you request them before 8pm. However room was very clean, had a kitchenette. A good place to relax after exploring the beach or broadbeach central. Was a fifteen minute walk from the commercial hub, but there was a light rail and bus stop a few minutes walk up the highway. The beach looks like a lot more of an attractive proposition than the pool, which is quite small and next to the highway. Staff were very friendly and gave good customer service.
Spa didn't work and bed was broken. ”
I had room 14 which is a single spa room. The spa didn't work and the left side of the bed was broken. I was sleeping like a V shape. But for $109 it wasn't a big issue. It's across the road from Pacific Fair and a 5 minute walk to Broadbeach South tram station. There's a Domino's pizza and liquorland 5 mins walk south plus other shops Inc an adult shop.
It was a great room for the price. Much roomier than I expected, and with a kitchenette. Marvellous location and much quieter than I expected, for that very reason!! I had a conference to attend, and the lovely lady at the office processed our check in very early as I had made the booking and needed to produce my Visa card and photo ID. My husband was then able to return later and just pick up the key. Of course it is an older style building but that didn't bother us one bit.
I read a few reviews on this motel so i knew what we were in for especially as we were cost cutting, we arrived an hour earlier than anticipated but we were able to go directly to the room which was great, the rooms were very clean and tidy, it housed us for 3 days and 3 nights, the shower pressure was very good and we had plenty of hot water. It was perfect location for our shopping at Pacific Fair which is 5 mins walk away
Did the job for 1 night.”
Room great for 5 persons (2bedroom). Clean and comfortable. Was fine for 1 night. We had a room upstairs so had a good view to Broadbeach buildings. Don’t think being on ground level would be as nice. Too many clientele who smoke is my deterrent staying again . Both rooms beside us smoked on balcony and rooms below us. This was my only gripe with the place.
Close to Bayfair Mall & Tram ”
The prices are great, 10 minutes walk to Broadbeach, they have a pool. 5 min walk to the mall, bus and train station. Not a lot of restaurant options nearby. We were able to check-in 3 hours earlier than planned which was great. The place is old and slightly outdated definitely needs a makeover; however, this is a budget accommodation. All in all the place is not bad if you are on a budget but don't have high expectations. They also don't service the rooms which I found bizarre given we were there 5 nights
we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here next time we are on the Gold Coast
Pleasant stay close to Gold Coast attraction”
Good comfortable stay, close to the main attractions of the Gold Coast
Lower cost option”
Great location near Broadbeach. Undercover parking is rather narrow.
Very basic price for very basic location, accommodation and service. Electricity tripped 5 min after check-in, but hostess came to our rescue soon thereafter. Supplemental towels provided on request (only 2 available at first).
Close to everything and great price comfy bed and plenty of sun on balcony”
I would stay again we had the best sleep and staff and all areas were clean with none of that awful chemical smells you get in other drive in motels
Basic Accommodation but clean”
As this is a motel, we were not expecting too much for the price and was pleasantly surprised by the basic but clean 2 bedroom unit we received. We had 3 children with us and they also included 3 single beds for us. Any question we had was met with no hesitation. We would stay there again just for the value and location.
good value for your money.”
I was only there overnight ,aside from a broken a/c that the manager explained had only been discovered,my stay was a good one. The room (motel room) was quite nice and comfy. It had a microwave,bar fridge and tea/ coffe available.
ok hotel - but don't get too excited about it”
This is a basic motel - with very average furnishings and condition. It was all tired (like we were) but the hotel was well located for our needs - to catch an early morning flight from Gold Coast Airport. The staff were accommodating as we arrived quite late in the evening and left very early the next day. In fact we didn't see a single person.
It's not five star but perfect for our stay for the price we paid and preferred it to another place nextdoor we have stayed at regularly but will book here instead from now on due the larger rooms and better off street parking.
Bargain price, perfect location,plenty of space”
The location is perfect, so close to parks, beach, shops & cafes. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which was quite big, plenty of room for our family of 5. Decent size bathroom & kitchen, comfy beds, basic dining table & 2 cane chairs rather than a couch. 3rd single bed was in the lounge room so we just moved it in front of TV so kids could be comfy. The kitchen had very basic supplies. Microwave, knifes, forks & spoons, one class bowl. No sharp knives, salad bowls etc. We would happily stay here again & recommend to our friends & family.
