The motel is old and worn, but very clean. The staff was most friendly and helpful. They let us leave our car there while we went diving for 5 days for no charge. There is a good pool area that is located in the courtyard.

We stayed as a family of 6, and got 3 inter-connected rooms and a good price. The place is a bit away from the city - so unless you have your own car or transport arranged, it could be tough. There is a McDonalds and a grocery store within walking distance. The rooms are Ok - we had ours in... More

The staff at this resort are incredibly friendly and helpful. The lady on reception allowed us to swim in the pool for a few hours before check-in as we arrived early and even moved our room up the priority list so it would be cleaned faster and we'd have somewhere to get out of the sun. Very comfortable beds with... More

If you are looking for bells and whistles and a place within walking distance to the city then this is not the place for you.......but, if you are looking for a cheap, clean, quiet room then this is the place for you. Its a bit tired but we are only sleeping here. There is a pool, although the slide is... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. It is far from the esplanade/CBD but if you are looking for a cheap stay option and have a car to get you around, this motel is not too bad. The rooms are spacious, and the beds are comfortable and clean. The air-conditioning is archaic and takes time to cool the rooms well enough,... More

This motel just outside of Cairns next to the Bruce Highway was near to shops/supermarkets and fastfood and has some more pro's: - Friendly and helpful staff - Cheap (55 dollars for a double studio) - Small kitchen in studio for making breakfast Con's are the noisy and old airconditioning and the somewhat outdated bed/bathroom.. But the main downside is... More

I don't like knocking a small business trying to survive in tough times so let's start with the positives. Incredibly reasonable rate on line and direct, friendly enough staff who moved me into a better room when i was clearly but politely shocked at what I had booked on line at short notice without doing my normal diligent research.

I stayed at the Cairns New Chalon for one night. I paid $69 for one nights accommodation and found the Comfort Suite to be suitable for someone who needs a comfortable bed, access to a shower or bath, on site undercover parking, privacy and does not mind driving 7 kms to the CBD. The bathroom and main room were clean... More

Lets start..... Location - good. Shops near by, car park on site. Room. - very poor. We stayed in one room with our teenage daughter. We were given a ground floor unit. The ceiling was totally covered with mould which made the room smell real bad. Bathroom had definitely seen better days. Anyway, we were there for 15 minutes and... More
