Room was clean, pool was sparkling. No doors on bathroom/toilet. Toilet flush button broken. Whole place looking a bit aged. Good that we only stayed one night. Staff were trying but were up against it. WiFi not working.

This place may have had "it" 40 years ago, but sadly not now.
Check in was simple.
The room really showed its age. The tv was broken and was not repaired during my stay. There was no hot water for my shower in the morning and i checked out before the office opened.
I paid a premium price for a third rate motel.
I would not recommend this place to anyone who had any type of holiday budget.

Should change name from Ocean Blue to Ocean Poo! Disgraceful for the price. Only booked as it was for 1 night. Have stayed in $99 motels with better rooms. Dirty pool to match the dirty room. Bathroom was disgusting. Covered in mould spores on the ceilings & the $2 shower curtain had mould & holes. There was a hole in the wall that had been plugged with toilet paper. No water on arrival & after it was turned on, understood why as the shower dripped all night. Previous guests rubbish still under the beds & they were on castors with plastic bags tied around them. Bedding was yellowed & despite the rooms being non smoking, there were cigarette burns in the quilt. Disposed of 2 cockroaches on the wall. Woken as late as 11.30 as other guests were outside drinking & talking loudly & owner was walking up & down near our room talking loudly on the phone. Doors are glass sliders with old curtains attached. Smoke detector was missing from ceiling. Grains of sand & dirt in beds. Cupboard doors wouldn't close & bathroom slider door was cracked & dirty. Overall, filthy motel. No stars

Chose this budget motel for the price as was only staying one night, not for a holiday. Expected it to be basic, but this was just awful. First sign was the dirty pool as we walked to our room. Mouldy shower recess and shower curtain. Room had not been cleaned properly. Dust and hair everywhere. Yellowing linen on bed. Bed was on wheels on Lino floor. The coasters that someone had used to try and stop the bed rolling all over the room were still wedged into the wheels. Broken handles on very old and marked bedside table.

Ocean blue crap
We booked this for one night. Needed a quick getaway. $120 a night. What a rip off. If anything it would only be worth $80/night maximum. Well never again. The shower curtain was mouldy and mould in the grout and ceiling. The bathroom door had been graffitied with expletives and disgusting pics. The fridge was broken and the freezer had frozen. There was no cutlery, microwave or plates in the room. The bed was that hard it would have been more comfortable sleeping on the floor. The curtains weren’t even hung properly. It was just filthy. I have stayed in budget motels before but nothing like this. We live in the country and even the rooms at our local motel are so much better then this. I will not be recommending this to anyone. I believe the health inspector should be called and shut the place down. I needed the getaway as I had just buried my father and needed to regroup. This has given me a horrid taste in my mouth and am certain I will say goodbye to the Gold Coast forever. The photos that are on the website do not match the condition of this place. Stay away completely. Stay away from room 11!
