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.
