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.

While the unit (and building) was looking a bit tired, Inn Cairns is centrally based with access to everything you need including a safe and secure car park beneath the building. Excellent spot to base yourself for day trips and drives around the Far North. Only issue we had was we asked a staff member for help regarding pricing for day trips but didn't receive an answer back.

I made the booking for 3 people (my parents and me), four months before the date. When I was at the airport (one hour before the check-in), they called me to tell me that they didn't have a room for 3 and one of us needed to sleep on the ARMCHAIR. My parents are 65 years old so I said NO and that I wanted to talk with the manager. She took the phone and I explained that I was going to stay there for ONE MONTH, so it was impossible to sleep in the armchair. She started yelling at me and she told me literally "I don't mind, I am going to cancel the booking and that is all". I begged her to not cancel it and to let me buy a mattress and put it there, because it was going to be impossible to find a flat for the whole month. She said yes and after that I hoped that she was going to try to fix the bad management that they had, but instead of that... - they DIDN'T CLEAN the room OR CHANGE THE SHEETS/TOWELS in the whole month - they only gave us two towels, so we need to bought another one - they gave us one 20ml shampoo and body soap for the whole month And of course, the rooms are nothing compared to the pictures!

Back for another stay at Inn Cairns. Extremely comfortable well equipped units in the middle of Cairns. Woolies & BWS across the road. A short walk down to The Esplanade Pool, Rusty's, the night markets or any amount of fabulous eating places. This unit has everything to ensure a comfortable stay including full kitchen, washer/dryer, air conditioning & the most central position. There is a pool on site as well as free secure parking. Each unit has its own verandah overlooking the street or the mountains.

If you want a central location where you can walk to the Reef terminal for your boat trips, swim in the esplanade lagoon, eat at the many wonderful cafes and restaurants and shop at Cairns Central shopping mall all without need for a car then this place is ideal. I have stayed here many times and thoroughly enjoyed my holidays. As well there is a bus terminal not far away for trips to the Botanical Gardens and Northern Beaches. The staff are friendly and helpful and helped me with my bags when I arrived. The rooms are very clean and ultra quiet. Air conditioning is very good and the building holds its coolness during hot days. There are great views to the rainforest covered mountains from the balconies of the rooms at the back of the building and a rooftop area to sit and enjoy the sunset. Security is excellent with the front doors being locked overnight with access with your room key. Thanks to Harry, Rani and Sebastian for making my stays so enjoyable and memorable. I will be back!

Not so cheap, but definitely nasty! This place is grotty, falling apart and surrounded by horrendously loud homeless people keeping you awake until all hours of the night. I’m tipping the last time any maintenance has been done on this property is a decade ago, as that’s when the last test and tag was done on their appliances. Black mould in the bathroom, filthy tired fixtures and fittings. Bed bugs and cockroaches. Unsafe and unsatisfactory standard for the provision of accommodation in 2023 in Australia. Run, run far away from this place.

Kitchen and seating area plus bedroom. Good space for a few days. Clean and tidy. Has a dryer and washer so it’s wash your own towels. No daily servicing. Dryer overheated and did not work well. Biggest plus is the location. Across from Woolworths. Irish pub around the corner and many little Asian places. Walking distance to the port and ferries to Green island. Apartment has a small balcony. A pool. AC works well. Very suitable for an not so expensive stay.

We were in a really bad way when we got to Inn Cairns... five hours across Australia with Jetnostars to arrive and be told that our bags were never loaded (along with 158 other people!). The reviews on here for Inn Cairns are also quite worrying. Forget it. It's a very good property with very keen pricing and if location is important to you, I don't think there is anything that matches that price point close to the town and if you go to Cairns for the foodie treats, it's a joy to be max 10 mins walk from everywhere. We had Room 201 which I've seen mentioned a number of times... and again, it was fine. Actually, more than fine. A reasonable bedroom, perfectly functional bathroom, good little kitchenette and a spacious lounge. OK, it isn't 'new' and it could do with a lick of paint... how can a snowflake possibly cope with these world-shattering first world problems? Apologies for the sarcasm... ...but the people who run this operate a business that works well. We arrived late, left very early and had a much bigger smile on our faces on the way out than on the way Inn. Did you see what I did there...? Good property, safe, secure and in serious danger of us coming back! Thank you.

It’s perfectly situated. It’s a hop skip and jump to the Esplanade, Reef Fleet Terminal to catch the catamaran for reef tours, Cairns Central Shopping Centre, Esplanade Lagoon, aquarium & lots and lots of restaurants. For their location and reasonably priced, it’s an easy decision to return. The apartment is tired looking but clean. The datedness was fine with us, as we were hardly in. It does the job. There’s a kitchen with microwave and fridge, glasses, cups, utensils & dishwasher. All clean and tidy. The bathroom was spacious and clean with a laundry tub, washing machine and dryer. Good shower pressure. The bedroom was adequate size with a comfortable bed. On the whole we cannot fault the apartment or it’s location. It’s location is a huge plus. 2 tvs in the apartment, balcony. Parking is available. Family said they will return when we visit Cairns. It’s location perfect!

The apartments are central. The unit needs an upgrade and was dusty. Unit faces a noisy street and next to a nigh club. Stayed one night it served its purpose you get what you pay for. If you are looking for an economy booking its ok.

The location was great . Walking distance to most places. I was worried after reading comments about not being clean and almost cancelled our booking but the cleanliness was acceptable. The complex and room are tired. We didn’t go to the pool as it was raining. The man on reception was very nice and helpful. Over all we had no complaints but it could do with a face lift and some furniture is past its use by.
