Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very shabby: many broken floor tiles in bathroom and main area, mean amenities, and the secure parking area was so difficult to manoevre in we decided to park in the street. A reasonable location but poor value for the money.

Once I got used to it (it took me a day or so), I liked the place! The manager, Mike, was laid-back, friendly and always very helpful. We arrived on a dark, rainy day and night (normal for the time of year in Cairns) and my first impressions of the accommodation were a bit gloomy: breeze-block walls (thankfully painted white), strip-lighting, a bit of a stale/damp aroma and sofa with black-tape repairs. However, for most of our stay we had sunny (and mostly dry) weather and it felt much better in the apartment and the breeze-block walls protected us from most of the neighbourhood noise. The apartment was clean and well-equipped. The cooker worked well - we didn't mind using matches to light the hobs. Good, clean toilet / shower room. The shower was powerful enough with water staying consistent at the chosen temperature. Very good value.

Its a budget place therefore don't expect 5 star. Management is very friendly. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks. 1 adult and 3 children and for the price paid you cannot complain. Yes the place is in dying need of maintenance and renovation however it is clean. The location is on the main highway and noise can be an issue. I would stay again but do hope they do some much need work especially to the gutters and roof.

We are a older couple who stayed for a week and found the staff very friendly, apartment clean and serviced while we stayed. This is an older building and clearly has some reno issues but overall our stay was pleasant. If you are looking for a place without traffic noise and without a car this is not the place for you.

Don’t stay here if you want peace and quiet! This place is on the corner of the main highway and another busy street, which is frequently used for Ambulance transfers to the hospitals nearby! The Oasis is, also, in a direct flight path, on calm days, for planes landing at Cairns airport. Noise can also radiate, into the rooms, from groups of travelers and their children yelling from the pool and BBQ area, as was the case on a couple of evenings and into the nights, during our week’s stay! Although the above has been mentioned in this review, the noise didn’t bother hubby and I as much as the state of unit 17 did! If other 2-bedroom apartments, in the complex, are as run down, as this one, with disgustingly dirty curtains, uncomfortable beds, uncomfortable peeling away lounges, (they definitely need to be replaced), fold up cheap ‘Bunnings like’ metal chairs, for sitting at the dining table, and a gas stove that has to be lit with matches, then again, don’t choose the Oasis for your vacation, in Cairns. The room, which didn’t have a lot of natural light, needs renovation. The pool area could do with some upgrading, as well. The concrete throughout the pool area has many cracks in it and the coating on the pool steps is lifting! The Manager/Caretaker was friendly and very accommodating. We were originally allocated, through our booking, a 2nd floor 2-bedroom unit, to be accessed by stairs. At our request, in kindness to our knees, he offered us the ground floor, No 17, which had just come up for holiday rental. He did admit he wasn’t sure as to what state it had been left! Even so, it would have been expected that some inspection, on the vacated resident’s departure, would have been done before offering it to holiday renters! Smoking is allowed outside each unit. Sadly, the smoke, from smokers, can drift into other units, whose sliding front doors may be open for fresh air! As well as the above, the free Wi-Fi is useless! This is another negative for the Oasis, with dropouts all the time, and at other times no service at all! For a better and faster service, you need to HOTSPOT your phones! You certainly can’t rely on the Oasis for your free internet! When we came back to Cairns, to visit our family, located around the area, we will definitely choose elsewhere! Once bitten, twice shy!

This hotel was one of only a few we had access to at short notice. There are pluses and minuses in regards to it, however, for the price, the limitations may be ok for you and your family. Firstly, we booked a 2 bedroom unit for us, it had a double bed, and 2 singles. The air con in the lounge and Bed 1 were fine, but bed 2 had no air con at all. The beds were ok, but not real comfortable. We were upstairs, and the unit, though dated was adequate fro our needs. Reception closes early, so make sure you let them know if you are arriving late. Gates to the hotel and carpark are locked after a certain time. The bathroom is quite decrepit, cracked tiles, rusty mirror and the taps were very skewing and hard to turn on and off. The kitchen area has a table and a couple of chairs, a fridge, microwave and various utensils. As I said, adequate. There is a television in the lounge with Foxtel. The pool looks nice and clean. It is situated on a major road, and on a flight path. So if you want quiet, this one isn't for you. It did us for 2 nights.

Friendly staff, room clean and comfortable. Could have done with a shower curtain to keep floor dry. Very small television which was on top of a wardrobe which made it difficult to watch. Small table and chairs which are meant for outside so were not the best to sit on for a long time. Motel had family apartments and a very nice pool area.

Helpful and friendly staff; convenient location (walking distance to Cairns Esplanade, etc); dated building, but value for money; all linen was clean; kitchen was well stocked with crockery, glasses, utensils, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle all in good working order. Gated parking and pedestrian access of a night; good sized rooms; air conditioning (not that we needed it ourselves); WIFI for guests; and our son loved the pool, playing with other guests. Great to see geckos (again, our son loved spotting them). Any time we return to Cairns we will stay again. Thank you Mike and staff. :-)

We booked again for an overnight stay prior to heading to Port. Yes it is dated but value for money and cleanliness is excellent. It is very well stocked with crockery/glasses, cleaning products etc and linen/towels are spotless. Our 2 bed unit had a new lounge, fridge & bench tops. Definitely couldn’t find a 2 bed apartment in cairns for comparable price. Mike was very helpful and was busy doing things to keep the units updated. Off street parking provided and we find this unit much quieter than others along Sheridan St and also one street back. We will definitely rebook for future stays.
