There was nothing I liked about the place. The room was old and pretty run down. The bathroom sink was disgusting with paint peeling.

Bedbugs
Over the last 2 years I have stayed in this hotel with no problems. Needs a little TLC but usually clean and is close to all Cairns amenities. I stayed again on 21/11/20 only to wake up next morning covered in red blistery welts/marks all over me. Two doctors have confirmed they are bedbugs. I informed the young man and suggested he have the room/motel fumigated but he did not seem very interested. Be careful if you plan to stay in the motel. I will not be returning.
