The only bad-ish point is the hotel is a bit of a walk to the busy part of Cairns. Approx 15 minutes to the Lagoon area, however the walk is along the Esplanade area so it is quite scenic and busy with people running, BBQ-ing, theres a kids playground and activities, so plenty of action so you do not find the walk.
The staff are lovely and helpful; you are basically left to your own devices after check in. There's a fridge and kettle in the room, a little balcony and a TV, all the essentials.
A breakfast is provided of cereals, bread, milk, jams, tea, coffee. You can also use the kitchen facilities for cooking if you choose to and there are washing and drying facilities, (very handy for people on the move!)
WiFi in the public areas, not in the rooms. There is a little pool at the breakfast area, no room for sunbathing, FYI.

The Balinese is a nice, clean, comfortable motel that is perfect for any length of stay in Cairns. The room is spacious. The decor is pleasant. The bed and bedding are good. Parking is good. Prices are reasonable. Breakfast is typical basic continental, but the kitchen area is clean and has everything you need if you want to make your own meals. There is a free PC with internet, but note that the Wi-Fi only works in the kitchen area. The motel is located about 15 minutes walk to the main part of Cairns (CBD/Esplanade area). Overall, a very good choice for Cairns.

Pro: nice decor, comfortable rooms

Cons: a bit far from town center

The Balinese is a simple Motel with clean and decent sized rooms a bit outside the centre of Cairns but in walking distance of most things. The breakfast is rather simple with toast and cereal but given the price for the rooms it is sufficient and there is a kitchen free to use. The staff is very friendly and helpful with all requests and parking is free, late-check-in is possible and there is free internet at a computer in the entrance area, however no free WIFI.

The hotel is located one block away from the esplanade and 15 min walk from the centre.
The rooms are clean but they smell like humidity.
The breakfast is really basic.
No free WiFi, bit you can use a PC in the kitchen until 9 pm.
Free parking.

Have previously stayed at the Bay Village. The Balinese Motel offer very good value for money. Clean rooms, maintained daily. Breakfast included plus the facilities to be able to cook all your meals. Why bother with an apartment. Would definitely stay here again. The walk into Cairns provides some exercise!
