We have stayed here on numerous occasions over the past 10 years. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Love the kitchen and laundry facilities, and the nice BBQ area.The staff are friendly and happy to assist in anyway they can. You can't beat it for the price.

We have stayed here several times when we need a cheap place to overnight in cairns. We have a high car so the 2.6m clearance is a positive for us as we can't get into a lot of car parks. Rooms are basic but can't complain for the price.

It was what we expected. We are a 70 year old couple. Out of the noise of central Cairns. Our room was very quiet, it was a ground floor and towards the end of the comlex. Microwave fridge kettle etc. Easy to drive to all the places we wanted to see. We didn't but you could walk to the centre....

We stayed here for 3 nights in this Motel. It is well located and pretty cheap. The room is very small with a small kitchen. The service was all right and we sleeped good. All in all you can stay here for some nights and less money

Stayed here a couple of nights recently & it was overall just ok. It was under $100 per night which is a good price for Cairns but it's a bit of a walk to get to the restaurants on the Esplanade or shopping in the town centre. The room was spacious & handy to have cooking facilities (we didn't utilize...

We stayed here on our first night of our 5 day trip. The room was great, just what we needed for the night. The beds were comfortable. Even though we didn't use the pool it looked lovely. The kids said the wi if was excellent. It had everything we needed. Would recommend.

Is in need of a good clean and some fresh paint. The doors, tables and remote controls need a very good wipe over everything felt very sticky. Some new towels would go a long way... Parking spaces are limited, first in first serve.... The location was good, close to the airport and not to far from the centre. Small convenient...

Had 2 bedroom apartment, good large bathroom. King size bed in main room. The air conditioner was great and did not have any noise in our room. Nice pool and BBQ area. Plenty of food places around the area. The staff where very nice. Better than being squished into a motel room with 3 kids. Value for money. No limit...

This is becoming my standard for weeks away I would rather spend my money on food and attractions. This lets us buy food and eat breakfast make coffee and keep snacks and fruit in our room. Clean although the air conditioning is noisy it does work. The bed was comfortable and the showers are good. We have two rooms and...
