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.

It has certainly seen better days but the room was quiet, super clean, bed and pillows were comfortable. Bathroom was squeaky clean and towels soft. Good sized TV to lay on the bed or sit in the chair. Ample tea & coffee and a little, very cold frig. Needed the AC as it was 27 degrees and it worked very efficiently. OK for couple of days. Garage down street about 2 blocks for food.

What a fabulous find. We stayed 2 nights and would definitely recommend this motel to anyone who is on a budget. The room, though not the most modern room we have stayed in was spotlessly clean, made up each day, and had everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Only a few minutes from the Promenade and a few more to the town. The owners are an adorable couple, very friendly, happy to help with anything and really take pride in their motel. Thank you Cairns Motor Inn!

On our travels across Oz in January we were very prepared except for our trip to Cairns as we were playing everything by ear - we needed a budget location close to the airport and main town - just to relax We found Cairns Motor Inn run by a wonderful couple - they were lovely !!! A real gem of a place , clean , practical, nice quiet pool and caring owners If you are on a budget but want something clean, tidy, friendly and a real gem then book here !!!!

A basic motel type of accommodation ....every thing you need, a little oldish and basic, but clean and comfortable. Very affordable and very close to the heart of town...you could walk to the Esplanade if it wasn't too hot? The best part are the owners, friendly and kind...even walked me to my room and showed me around. Great

Stayed for two nights, one night at each end of a dive trip. The couple running the motel are super friendly, where happy for me to leave luggage behind and store it for me. Motel is quite old but well maintained, rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Its about a 20-30 minute walk from the Esplanade, although there is a service station within two blocks if you need basic supplies. Price was not expensive, under $100 per night, and I'd stay again.

Stayed here with my dad as we needed somewhere pet friendly (2 small dogs). Room serviced each day with clean towels provided. The shower is a bit like a waterblaster but gets the job done! Owner very friendly. Gardens well-maintained. Handy location if you have a rental to get to town.
