Great place for those how don't want to spend much time in the room. Well located, near the centre, shopping and beach. The room was clean and tidy worth paying for. Also very affordable specially when compered to other rooms around the Cairns. I'll definitely recommend. Internet was slow thou.

This was our first stop in Australia on our year-long adventure. We had an early flight and they very kindly let check in at 7am without charging us any extra! We got to the room and found a pair of soiled boxers hanging on the back of the door. Not a great start. They've let this place go a bit.... More

We saw a guest up on her balcony and she called the number also. Having no luck at all, my husband walked down to a gas station nearby that was... More

Stayed here on a 4 night stay in February on a tour of Aus and found it ok, cheap and cheerful would sum it up. Reception is not 24hour closes at 2100 I think but found them to be very helpful and knowledgable about the local area. Free wifi was a plus too. About a 20 minute walk to the... More

My daughter had to have an operation in Cairns so we booked this place as the price was reasonable for 3 people. Dust on the phone, mould in the shower recess, balcony door would not lock, only had a chain across the door. A microwave but nothing to use with the microwave. We were on the 2nd floor and the...

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
