Great location to visit hospital and practical room and facilities but there’s no WiFi in my room at all. ( only connect wifi outside the hotel room) Housekeepers needs proper training because they always forgot to clean floors and bathroom/shower. The receptionist were very

Yes, it is a veteran motel but it served our purpose very well as it was close to the venue for the Conference we were attending. We had a ground floor unit which was clean, quiet and comfortable with a kitchenette and a walk in shower, which was very helpful as I have a

I was there for a Nursing Conference, so it was all I needed. Close to shops, food and the hospital. Clean, comfortable and contained everything necessary for a nights stay. Even had a designated undercover smoking area. I will be staying again on my next trip.

Thank you for the kind review. We look after many hospital patients on extended stays so it is important for us to maintain high standards of cleanliness as the rooms are also self contained. Cedar Lodge is close to major shopping facilities and is serviced by a bus service outside the front of the motel. Thank you again for the positive review.

It's good acommodation for a business traveller or those who need to stay a few nights or more and need close access to JCU or the hospital. It's worth paying a few dollars more to stay in an 'executive' room that's back from the main road. My 'executive' room was basic but self

Thank you Wayne for your positive review. We are in a prime location for those needing to be this side of the city. With very convenient take away places and the tavern close by.

Stayed 11 nights while my husband was in the hospital having a triple bypass. Had Room 8 at the rear of the premises so it was very quiet...no traffic noise. The unit has a microwave etc. which helped with meals. The motel is older but the room was clean with a renovated

Thank you for your inquiry. It is 2 km to the hospital plus we have a bus stop just 20 mtrs away with buses running very regularly. I hope all goes well for you and hubby.

"Downstairs at the rear with little traffic noise"
"ask for one away from the road"
"This is a double storey building so if you have mobility issues, maybe need to book ground floor. The steps were not too steep & had rails"
"I just had to mention that I had to urgently fly to Townsville, didn't even mention the words "good night's sleep". I was placed in a room right at the back and heard no traffic whatsoever. Slept like a baby. Very comfortable queen size bed and also a single bed which I didn't need to use."
"Quiter at the back of the 2 story level or rear of motel."
US$92 - US$147 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
