My DH and I stayed here for 2 nights while on vacation Cairns. Our flight to Cairns was an early flight and when we got to the hotel, they were able to get us a room within 20 minutes (I had notified them prior of our early arrival). So, we were able to change clothes and go explore. The room was suitable for our purpose. The hotel overall was clean but we did see black ants in the room, but there weren't that many and I know that is common in tropical areas. They even have notes in the room about them and that they will come spray if you want them to. If you are looking for a view, this isn't the hotel for you. Our room overlooked construction next door, even though we never heard any noise from it. Also, the hotel is not located on the water/beach but it is a short walk to the water and to the wharf and restaurants. The bed was not too comfortable or plush but was ok with us because we did so much during the day that we were worn out. The staff was nice but the concierge just wasn't too knowledgable...nice, though, but not very helpful.
Again, this is not a plush hotel but it is not a dump, either. I would stay here again and would recommend it.
**Also, this is not an internal corridor hotel. The halls are outside.**
