No sleep

Had a room with an interconnecting door and had to listen to the guest next door coughing and spluttering all night as well as the TV he had turned on. No sleep!

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.

perfect overnight accommodation

The receptionist on arrival was extremely pleasant, best service i have ever had in cairns! Rooms are old but clean and comfortable. Beds could do with an upgrade but were quite comfortable. Price for three people was unbeatable!

The receptionists were great, and very helpful, the pool great, hotel location just alright. Not having any ground floor rooms could be a problem for some.

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in bathroom, water pipes noisy, TV sound out of sinc with picture, advertised Fox availability but had been previously withdrawn.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!!

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.
