Any hotel has to be better than this one. TL:DR I booked this hotel through Priceline Express Deals. I selected a 4 star hotel in Cairns, Australia. There is a downtown area in Cairns. Priceline fails miserably to acknowledge this and dumps all of Cairns into one location. If you stay at this hotel you should plan to have car... More

This motel was conveniently located on the main road into Cairns. We were looking for a comfortable, clean overnight stop at a reasonable price. This motel certainly filled our requirements. They offer free internet but it was very slow - I gave up and used my own.

I stayed here with my partner in early Jan 2015. Overall we were pretty pleased with what we got for $75/night. The hotel is in a great location - only a few minutes drive to The Esplanade which is beautiful and has great restaurants and it's also fairly close to the airport. It has a pool which was quiet each... More

We found this hotel to be wonderful. Staff were lovely. Room was clean and air con was cold as! I had to keep turning it down to prevent freezing us LOL. We stayed in a family room with a bunk for our young children and a double bed for the parents. I found the beds exceptionally comfortable. Loved the Pool... More

We stayed here with our daughter and 3 grandsons for 2 nights. The first awful thing was when I went to the toilet and my pants were wet. here was water leaking from the toilet all over the floor.. Then the fridge was so small there was room for nothing although this was a kitchenette suite. There was no table... More

Close to the city, great food, cheap, and the service is to be recommended highly. As a local I have spent a few nights here when travelling. And keep coming back. The thing that makes me most feel at home is the staff always treat me with respect.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and quiet. We were disappointed by the fact the internet wasn't working for most of our stay, since free wifi was one of the attractive features of this hotel (we were told each day that they were working to fix it). The location is far... More

We spent six nights in room 49 and found our room very comfortable. We showed up at nine at night after checking out of our previous accomodation due to ants and lizards. The woman working the front desk was very accomodating, showing us the room and giving us time to book on Expedia so we could get a better deal.... More

The apt in the hotel is spacious and confy, but it is too far from downtown (3.5 km) or any interesting places and there isn't shuttle to the airport. It's OK if you have a car. The internet doesn't work well. The price is good.
