You get what you pay for

The South Side International is a good value commercial motel. The Motel is some 4.5 Klm from the centre of Cairns and is therefore out of the average tourists area of interest. It has therefore looked to the commercial traveler, the family group and the local visitor market. It's a bit run down, but this is made up in its reasonable tariffs and clean rooms. Noisy in the morning slamming corridors doors can be an issue if you want to sleep a little late. Continental breakfast was $12 each which was reasonable. You need to bring or hire a car. We were out most of the time, but TV remote didn't work that well which can be annoying. Plenty of off street car parking was handy, overall a good budget priced place to stay a night or two.

Has Potential but needs some work

This place is good for the money but do not expect something fantastic. Its a little dirty on the inside and the clientele are an interesting bunch but the room was clean and the beds were comfy. The location was convenient as its on the main highway into the CBD.

good n bad

good service for all staff at all time. I was feeling dizzy when the fan rotating without power from report-check-fix in 5mins only. all area clean. there are lots of day tour information synopsis put on the wall. good wifi service it is very difficult to find a free WIFI it is fast also. bad: too far away from city we need to take by bus every day by using 2.7aud one way. it is very expensive if I stay long vacation in cairns therefore I change hotel from after tomorrow. too small swimming pool but it does't matter due to there is free of charge open door swimming pool in city it is clean beautiful n fun. a little bit noisy because of the air condition even through I turn the power off n too loud for beside some one talk/laugh
