Rooms ok but it smell of mold and fungi smell.

Staff was friendly.
It would have been good if not for the smell.

A 2-night stay

The three best things about this hotel were the staff (specifically the receptionists) who were very helpful, the bed which was comfortable, and the bathroom which was clean and tidy.
I arrived at the Cairns Southside after several days at sea on a liveabord dive boat. My intial thoughts was that the motel's location was rather far from the esplanade (city centre). That being said I was reasonably happy with my room - it was much more spacious than the cabin I'd just been in and the bathroom was decent. The toilet was comfortable (!) and the shower did it's job nicely. After getting sorted in my room I spoke to the receptionist (who was delightfully helpful) about walking to the centre of the town. At a fair clip you can do it in about 50 minutes (I did!) but do follow their advice and keep to the main road. Some of the surrounding areas can be a little rough (as confirmed by the taxi drivers I spoke to). If you aren't up for a bracing walk and certainly if it is dark then hire a taxi (16 dollars or so will get you to the botanical gardens, if I remember correctly, so taxis won't break the bank). Now, as I stayed over the Easter weekend staff levels and room cleaning levels were at a minimum and dining options were unavailable. I understand this and I do tend to prefer being left alone anyway. However, where this motel can pick up its game a little is in maintenance. The towel hook on the back of the bathroom door fell off at first use (with the motel's own clean towels :-) ) and the fitted light in the ceiling appeared to show some heat damage to the surrounding fitment. This is common to those type of recessed ceiling lights but a lick of paint wouldn't have gone amiss. Also, the ceiling fan needed remounting as it rather enchantingly wobbled as it got up to speed.... Apart from that I can't complain. I'd say a 3 star rating would probably be more accurate.
