We booked this hotel since it was relatively close for a late arrival from Auckland and a early departure at 6:00 AM flight out of Cairns to the US the next day. The lobby was okay, typical lobby, spend the money here but this is where it stopped. We going to our room we noticed how dirty everything and lack of maintenance the grounds seemed. We entered the room and saw peeling paint, dirty walls, rusty and filthy everything. Do not stay here what ever the price. I am really miffed how it can rate higher.
Worn, dirty, unmaintain rooms, poor bedding.
Lack of maintenance
Away from town - taxi to town abt $20
Hotel bus shuttles to town $4 per person fairly regular schedule
Close to airport but about a $25 cab tab.
