We stayed here one night before and after our live aboard. The Inn is in a very convenient location. Very near the marina, where we could just walk to it. The ladies at the reception counter, not so helpful and approachable. But we didn't really need to deal with them much anyway. The pool was nice1

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment with my hubby and two girls aged 6 and 7 for just over 2 weeks. We had the bedroom and the girls shared the sofa bed. The kitchenette is good with two hotplates and a microwave. The fridge is a bar fridge. The room was well presented, clean and comfortable. The pool area... More

Previously when in Cairns, I've stayed in the Marina area in good hotels. On my recent trip, I decided to stay in the centre of Cairns City at the Inn Cairns. I was pleasantly surprised to find the apartments comfortable, spacious, well furnished, very clean and in my case,with a great view of the sun setting behind the hinterland mountains.... More

The apartment itself is alright, mostly for the price. There's a decent patio and living room area, a nice sized kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. It is worth noting that the kitchen has a small mini-fridge with very limited freezer space, and there is no oven. The apartment is nothing too fancy, but it was nice enough and great to have these... More

This property has two outstanding features. One is its location, right in the centre of town, and the other is the price. It is good value for money, and it is clean. It also offers free underground parking. There is little else to recommend it. I found the shabbiness of the apartment, and the dingy, small bedroom, quite depressing. This... More

Just spent three nights at Inn Cairns. Great location, in the centre of town with secure parking. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The apartments are a bit dated but comfortable. We were in a one bed apartment on the 2nd floor overlooking Lake street and i would advise anyone to get a rear facing room as we were at... More

Spent 4 days here in a one bed-roomed apartment. Good facilities and comfortable, with helpful and friendly reception staff. Location is great - in walking distance of the marina and the railway station, and surrounded by good places to eat. In the apartment everything worked and I had an enjoyable stay there. I did not use the pool or rooftop... More
