I booked this motel based on it being ranked #2 hotel in Cairns (although I see now that it has fallen in its standing). Although the proprietor was nice (even giving us a ride to the marina to catch our ferry), this didn't make up for a number of other deficiencies. Although the room was large and clean, the hallways had a musty odor and the room looked worn and furniture cheap. View was of a tin roof and some other worn down buildings. The location, although quiet, didn't seem as though it was in the best part of town. There were few eating accommodations nearby and the marina appeared to be a hefty hike (possibly 20 minutes). I had thought breakfast was included, but was told it would be an extra $5. We decided to take a pass on this--and I'd suggest taking a pass on this motel unless you can get a very good rate there. Our rate was $155/night, and I'm sure we could have done better for this price elsewhere. I would recommend something closer to the marina, which is much more scenic and has many restaurant choices.
