Our flight arrived late into Cairns, we needed a bed. The prices are low so I wasn't expecting 5 star, it was O.K. It is not a 24hr front desk, so had to phone a number for the night safe for our key. Cons We were met with three flights of stairs (no lifts) to lug our bags wearily to... More

The rooms were very clean and surprisingly spacious. The room has all the facilities you would expect from a more expensive hotel. Overall I would recommend this motel as a great alternative to the budget backpackers.

The place is quite far from the city centre and the reception is not 24/7. Other than that, the staff at the front desk was very helpful and kind. On a couple of nights we had sleeping issues with people coming back from a night out and being VERY LOUD. Furthermore, the same people were not capable of closing their... More

I booked this hotel because I landed late and couldn't get a domestic connection home until the following morning. Just needed somewhere cheap to crash for 5-6 hours until I went back to the airport. In the future, I will pay for a better hotel, because I got absolutely no sleep here. The hotel is basically right next to a... More

Only needed a bed for one night which was lucky because I would have pulled my sad face if I had to return to this hotel after a day off galavanting. This is your standard boring motel. If you sleep well to rhythmic noise you are in luck because the laundry is downstairs and it churned and glugged in fine... More

City Sheridan is right across the main thoroughfare and gives a perfect view of Surfers paradise. I would say one of the best "value for money" that you can get. You'll get all what you need for a family outing. With lots of attractions around and good access to this hotel, you'll never feel left alone in isolation.

Ok, look, this place isn't a swanky 5 star hotel, but neither are the prices. I stayed here for a little over $100 a night for 3 nights and here is my honest evaluation given the rates charged. What i liked, the pool area and bar is lovely, and it's great to come back too after a day of travelling... More

Three girlfriends and I stayed here in 2012 (not 2014). The service was really good and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. It's a pretty small hotel which was good because it was quiet but not so good because it felt more like a motel experience. If you want a place to stay that wont break the bank,... More

We stayed one night at the City Sheradin to be close to the airport for an early morning flight. It is also located a couple blocks off the waterfront esplanade. Our room was very basic with double bed, single bed, table, chairs, desk, TV, microwave and mini fridge so had all the amenities we needed for 1 night including kettle... More
