Stayed here because it was just an overnight stay before catching a flight out in the early morning. Upon approaching the hotel, the large "MOTEL" word painted across the building didn't make it seem that appealing. I know it's not a high-end hotel, but at least don't advertise it like a backpacker's place. The electronic key did not work, so after multiple tries, they had to give us a regular key to enter the room. We were on the 3rd floor, and as the other reviews have stated, there are no elevators, and the wifi is very spotty. The room was hot and stuffy. The furniture and beds were old and worn. However, the worst part were the ants that were running around basically EVERYWHERE in the hotel. They were all along the walls, floors, air conditioning wall unit, but especially around the microwave and mini-fridge. When I told the front desk about this, they seemed to be sympathetic, but stated that all rooms were like this and it was something that all buildings had a problem with in Cairns. Not really, as we had stayed in the Holiday Inn along the Esplanade too, and that one didn't have any problems like this at all. Also, the front desk only is staffed during the day, so since we needed to check out early, we had an issue leaving the key since we didn't have an electronic card key. Yes, this location is one of the cheaper places to stay in Cairns, but I would recommend to spend a little extra money and get a nicer place. At least we didn't have street noise issues. We were in the building facing Upward Street, not the main building facing Sheridan Street. Plus, with the A/C and ceiling fan running all night, we had enough noise from that to not notice any street noise.
