Good Budget Motel

Easy walking distance to the heart of Cairns. Whilst on main road it was still quiet. Staff were very helpful. Clean room though aircon needs an upgrade in the room we had though can't comment on other rooms. Comfortable beds.

A break in Cairns

City Sheridan is conveniently located for walking to the City, Botanic Gardens, Esplanade and entertainment venues. Buses to the beaches stop across the street. Breakfast at the City Sheridan is expensive and I found it much better value to eat elsewhere or have a light meal in my unit. The units could do with a comfortable chair! The pool looked as though it could do with a good clean but the weather wasn't really warm enough for swimming.

Not impressed

Photos on website desceiving, old property that needs a full makeover Believe our room was refurbished tho, no ventilation in bathroom, water pipes noisy, TV sound out of sinc with picture, advertised Fox availability but had been previously withdrawn. On the plus side you each get a free drink voucher when booking a tour and staff very helpful and friendly Overall not to our usual standard but "you get what you pay for" I guess!!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Hire a car from across the road at East Coast Rentals and they will gladly give you a lift to the airport when returning the car Get a quote from the others nearby and East Coast will do their best for you to get your business

Good motel to just sleep in

This is a motel, not a hotel. Was able to get a double room for less then $150 for two nights so not a bad deal. Situated about 20-30 mins walk from Cairns central. Rooms were clean and the house keeping did a good job. Got AC and Fan to keep cool. Small pool in the complex but we didn't use it. We only used the room to sleep in at night so nothing to complain. Recommend to anyone who is looking for budget accommodation.

Near the centre

The motel is not far from the centre (15 minutes walking). It's not very expensive and it's a standard motel.

Great hotel for it's value

Friendly staff, spacious rooms and meticulous cleanliness. Short (walking) distance from city centre. Very respectable restaurant (don't miss the Fridays 2 for 1 steaks offer). Good price. More than I was looking for when I booked my trip to Cairns to use it as a base for exploring the region. Nothing luxurious but more than a cosy and comfortable base for a pleasant stay in the town. I would be more than happy to stay in it, if I visit the area again. (We had some problems with uncivilised guests at the room next door making noise in the early morning hours, but this has nothing to do with the hotel and I guess it can happen everywhere. However the reception is not staffed after 10pm and therefore there was nobody to take care of the problem)

One night stop over

excellent value for close to CDB position 10minutes casual stroll and few minutes from airport. Would be okay for longer stay, tea & coffee making facilities plus microwave. Restaurant for Dinner & Breakfast but we walked into town. Airconditioning and ceiling fans. We needed twin beds (senior ladies) which was great as hard to get this in a lot of places

The hotel is comfortable and clean and good value. Its located about a 15 minute stroll from the city centre. My only complaint is that it does not provide security boxes.

This hotel is rather like the

This hotel is rather like the old style motels in the structure of their rooms. It is about a 10 minute walk to the city center, which makes it a handy location. The pool is on the small side but has a lovely waterfall cascading down rocks on one side. Breakfast, although basic is definitely is sufficient. Staff helpful. Would recommend this hotel as value for money.
