Good for the price

Cheerful staff, nice pool, good walk to city
It's an ageing motel but good value for money. 15 minute walk to town and not a difficult walk. It would be great if they replaced the pillows as they are quite worn out and a good pillow really makes for a good night's sleep.

Don't waste your money on this one

Location only
We arrived very late only to be woken around 7am by the hotel dryer. Our room was beside the laundry. This is a very unloved hotel needing a complete renovation of the room, bathroom and all furniture. No decor matched and everything was damaged or faulty. We have stayed at better backpackers accommodation. Do yourself a favour and pay a little more elsewhere.

Good Stay

The location was great. It is within walking distance of City Centre. Quiet place with a wonderful lagoon type pool.
I enjoyed my stay. Although my rooms was a bit dated it was clean and well stocked. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The price was good, I would stay there again.

2 days in Cairns

Price, location and micrwave in the room
For the price it was what could be expected. A bit more security maintenace of my room would have made my stay better. The sliding "pool view" door only locked by a chain latch. Also there is not enough off street parking available.
