The front desk staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms though were clean but a bit dated. Also the front desk closed at 8pm, so if you had to check in late you had to call someone. Finally the hotel was a short walk to the beach and the city center. Overall I would stay at this hotel again.

We stayed for two nights in February and the motel was very busy. However the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room itself was small, basic, clean and comfortable with a surprisingly big bathroom. Handy location and walkable to esplanade, centre and train station. Suited our purpose and we have no cause for complaint. Thanks.

My husband and I have stayed here several times during our trips to Cairns. We initially stayed here because they had a $99 room promotion and we were so impressed with the value for money. Unfortunately they don't offer this price for people staying one night only anymore. The rooms are lovely, very pleasant and clean. The beds are comfortable... More

Around 10-15 mins walk to main area and sometimes it is difficult to walk if the weather is too hot and also at night and taxi will cost 8$... But rooms are comfortable and good service by staff...

My girlfriend and I stayed here while in Cairns. It's essentially a case of getting what you pay for; basic room, clean but small. Air Con in our room didn't go below 21C which was frustrating but it was better than no air con at all. There is free Wifi which is a plus - not the quickest but fine... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It was great! Staff were friendly and helpful. The room and very clean and comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it 5* is the wifi dropped in and out and the shower pressure wasn't the best. Other than that I'd be back.
