Yes- Expedia said it was 4-stars. That was ridiculous. We stayed two nights, and asked to move rooms because of the roaches. There is a sign in each room saying that they "try their best to keep the room free of bugs, but it is a tropical environment." Seriously?!? That sounds like an excuse, as I've been in bug-free rooms in other rain forest areas including Panama and Costa Rica.
The worst part is the location. We had contracted for a trip to the Great Barrier Reef and Kuranda with our friends, who smartly stayed in the CBD. NO ONE would come out to get us, so we had to get a $20 into town to catch our tours, then take the $20 back to our hotel. I thought the hotel was downtown- IT'S NOT and it will COST YOU SERIOUSLY if you don't have a car or plan to do organized touring.
The fridge was nice to have, and staff did their best, but seriously, I woulnd't stay here again, ever.
