Cairns City Sheridan
Ranked #60 of 63 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed 22 November 2010

I was impressed with what I got for the money.
The room was spacious and very clean, with fridge, hairdryer, iron board all that. The only thing that give away it's a motel is the micorwave (which I dont mind), otherwise quite decent. The internet was also free with good speed.
I only paid 68 bucks per night so was given the room facing Sheridan Street, the rooms facing the inside swimming pool should be quiet but cost more. So if you're annoyed by the traffic noise, turn on the air-con fan, then you wouldn't notice a thing.

Another tip for walking to the globe (heart of the city) is to take the explanade route instead of Sheridan Street, it'll make it a joy walk (15 mins). But if you need to get to the fleet terminal, it'll take about 25 mins, I'd suggest take a cab, which only costed me 7 bucks.
The new owner has done a great job to turn the place around and I'll stay there next time to Cairns.

This Best western is good value for money. I stayed here for 4 days. It is a bit of a walk (about 15 minutes) to the CBD/esplanade where all the restaurants etc are. Booking was very easy through their website. Best part is internet is free (as compared to rydges where they charge you).

Rooms were ok - not plush, not bad - just right and comfortable. TV is good - many channels. There is tea-coffee, a small balcony. Air con was very loud! so I switched it off when sleeping!

Traveled to Cairns with my husband and two other couples. The location is a bit away from what's happening. We walked quite a bit to find a restaurant the first two nights and then we ate at the hotel and wished we had had dinner there all four nights. Excellent food for such a small dining room. We ate by the pool after a nice swim.

I booked this online from the UK and paid $71 online and stayed for three nights. The hotel was clean, the food was good, there was a lovely pool area, wi-fi as well as a computer in the back office for internet access for those without wi-fi. The internet was down on the PC though and the staff weren't able to fix it. The hotel is close to shops and the rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and a mini-bar. The staff were extremely helpful and arranged excursions for the hotel customers.

This motel is very good value, and close to centre of Cairns. Staff is very helpful and obliging. We had several meals from the restaurant and they were very good. For a budget hotel, the room had everything we needed. Housekeeping was very good. One complaint only, regarding my single bed on wheels. It would roll through the night, and I asked the young man at the desk if they could fix it, and he said he would attend to it, but he didn't.
Apart from this everything else was fine.

We have stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and was very satisfied. It is on the main road but we have requested a room on the quiet part of the complex during booking and it was honored. According to staff, the new owners took over in December 09 and have renovated. The room was very clean and had all the basic needs. Comfortable bed and amenities, a nice tv with austar and a very friendly staff. The room service menu is basic but we tried their BLT and the food was tasty and size was generous. Only 10 minute walking distance to the Esplanade and it costs 7 -9 dollars if you take a cab back from the Esplanade. We would definetely recommend it to anyone who needs a convenient, comfortable and affordable accommodation in Cairns.
