Arrived here after long drive from up half way up Cape York. We hadn't booked on advance, so it was sheer luck. The studio was extremely roomy and faultlessly clean and prepared. Plenty of parking for our big (2.3 more high) 4x4. Service very friendly, especially as we were pretty grubby and covered in red dust. Loved the bath! Very... More

I stayed here with my parents and it was truly remarkable! Jim and Penny (the owners) are very helpful and accommodating. They booked tours for us and recommended heaps of other stuff to us. And the facilities are great- We made great use of the BBQ! Pool area is beautiful! And our room came equipped with a Kitchenette which came... More

We just stayed one night after a trip to Cape Tribulation and Port Douglas is close enough to Cairns airport to use as a base before flying. We were glad of the laundry facilities and put on a large wash as soon as we arrived. Owners were friendly and helpful. The kitchenette would have been an asset if we were... More

Very clean, but don't come for the amenities. I chose this hotel because it was in the middle of a long family vacation and I was looking forward to having fun in Port Douglas as well as knocking out our laundry. The laundry closed at 8 pm (last load needed to be prior to 7 pm because the "dryer doesn't... More

There is little to fault with the Lazy Lizard Motor Inn, but we were only there for a few hours as we arrived late and checked out early. As such we didn't check out the facilities of the establishment and these comments are on the room only. The room was clean. It is average sized for a triple share, as... More

This is a little different than what you might expect of a Best Western hotel. It is a small, one-storey building along a covered car-port parking but with trees and shrubs around. There's a small pool and BBQ area. Rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. What is especially helpful are kitchenettes with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, electric frying pan and... More

We stayed at the Lazy Lizard for one night on our way up to the Daintree, and found it to be a perfectly reasonable mid-range motel for our needs. As others have already mentioned, the rooms are spacious and clean and the owners friendly and clearly passionate. Port is an expensive town to stay, and this is a good value... More

We spent five nights at this motel .It is very reasonably priced, kept in tip top condition and very clean. The owners are very friendly , give you lots of good advice, and make travellers very comfortable, which is important to really enjoy a holiday. It is a few minutes drive to town. It also has a pool which was... More

We chose this motel given that it had gotten good reviews and offered a very good discounted senior rate. We were not disappointed with the choice. As others have indicated, rooms are large and spotless and the proprietors--Jim and Penny--are delightful and helpful. The motel had everything we needed, including a small kitchen and laundry facilities. They also offered us... More

From the pre arrival assistance with tour ideas and bookings to arrival and great experience while there the LL is hard to find any fault. Very friendly hosts, lovely clean rooms and useful local information was provided. A bit out of town but not too far if you have time to walk or ride a bike.
