Not the Ritz but was clean
Didn’t see anyone to make a comment on service. The motel is old , but it was clean and location was handy.

Exceptional 10.0
My family and i were made to feel so welcome from the first moment we arrived. We loved our stay and will stay again next time we visit Cairns.

Very good 8.0
Location, spacious room, cleanliness, kitchenette which allowed me independence with meals & although it doesn’t have all the bells & whistles of fancy resort it doesn’t charge for them either. My one annoyance was that the advertised wi fi was only available inside the reception office during office hours, which was closed 12 noon - 2pm & at 6pm each day.
William, au10 night trip
Poor 2.0
I liked the location. I did not like the condition of the room. Beds poor. Fridge needed de frosting, curtains poor, lack of power points, no cooking facilities, laundry dirty, poor access after hours, on third floor with person in wheel chair, no privacy in room. The only positive was the kind person on reception. Loud and obnoxious guests partying till very late in the next morning.

Poor 2.0
Policies that were unspecified in terms and conditions which left us with nowhere to stay for the night. The money was also non-refundable, meaning with lost money.

Huge room nice stay.
Ian, au1 night trip
Poor 2.0
False advertising with the wifi. The condition of the room and the cost. I paid $180 for a room that I didn’t even sleep in because I was so disappointed of the quality and condition of the room. I paid an extra $20 more at Redges because I needed the wifi for my work and the quality of the room was clean and did not smell. I will never go back to this hotel.

Good 6.0
The lady at the check in counter was friendly and helpful.The room was clean ,the beds were surprisingly comfortable,the price was good.My only two real negatives are that the a/c was only in the lounge/kitchenette and better cooling measures should be considered for a comfortable nights sleep and the internet available doesn't really warrant the free wifi selling point..
