When I'm submitting a review I'm rating it based on the claimed stars of the venue. This is a budget accommodation facility yes but they are honest in their claims, clean room, great location to cairns central and the airport. We needed a one night crash and burn place waiting for our flight and the Adobe was right then exactly... More

A fairly standard Motel only a ten minute drive from Cairns Airport. Two storey building with a Restaurant at the front, twenty four hour check-in and a saltwater swimming pool. Large comfortable rooms with the usual accoutrements. Queen Beds or singles. Walk-in shower area in a moderately sized bathroom. Staff are helpful and went out of their way to help.... More

I will not stay here again. The check out time is 09:30 which I find way too early. The room was smelly but was supposed to be a non smoking room. The rooms are cheap looking and I did look twice to check if my bed was clean! It was so so!! There is a "pool" available but it feels... More

We chose Adobe for its cheap price and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was big and clean. You get what you pay for with the dated interior. The staff are very detached, you barely have to speak three words to them, they hand you your key and take it back at the end. The walk to the esplanade took... More

Stayed 3 nights with husband and 12 year old boy in room with comfortable queen bed and single. Décor and facilities dated but had everything you need including little fridge and big flat screen TV. No wifi available but there is a pool right by the Little Riccardos in-house restaurant. Italian food excellent. Bathroom large and storage area separate which... More

Close to city and the airport. Older style motel with a large room. Bed was firm but comfortable, pillows were too soft and not enough of them. Long bench allowed things to be spread out and the extra bed was helpful for clothes and other things. Motel has Little Ricardo's restaurant on the premises, it is very good and saves... More

Stayed four nights with my partner while in Cairns on business. Room was clean. It was relatively quiet. Sheets and towels changed once during our stay which was fine. Pleasant Mexican decor. It's a bit of a walk from the CBD - around 15-20 mins to Central Shopping Centre.

The Adobe is an order of magnitude above what you'd expect from a budget motel. The rooms are all recently refurbished, with great Aircon and TVs, clean bathrooms and (most importantly) very comfortable beds! The restaurant in its lobby, Ricardo's, is a multiple award winner and for good reason. Best pizza I've had in Cairns! Plus the swimming pool is... More

I stayed here for several nights and was very pleased with the state of the room. It was affordable, well maintained and everything I expected it to be. The room was spacious and perfect for what I needed. Definitely worth the 5/5!
