Wifi when travelling is very important to us so we always check that it is available. This place says it is but don't believe it - it crashes more than it runs. Room is a king motel room, hard kingsize bed, chipped tiles, free ants and cockroaches. Right on highway and close to airport; do here traffic and planes but does not affect too much. Cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for. Will look elsewhere next time.

Although this wouldn't fit my idea for dream holiday accommodation due to it being on a busy street without a sea or garden view, I must say I can understand the great reviews. The price for the excellent service we received really was value for money. A big shoutout especially to the cleaners who always left our rooms spotless over the 3 nights we were there and who had little floral arrangements throughout our room, including on our made up beds. The complimentory scones, cream, jam, along with coffee/tea that were available in the morning was a great treat. I think the owner is setting a standard of service that other motels in this price range might consider. The accommodation was booked out every night, and I'm not surprised. Worth all of these great reviews. Well done Cairns City Palms.

We’re currently staying at the Cairns City Palms. We’ve been here for for nights already and will be here for another four nights. This place is absolutely great. I can’t compliment the staff highly enough. All staff including receptionist, cleaners etc have been wonderful. The place is very clean. This is the cleanest room we have found anywhere during our travels. We will definitely come back here next year. Well done to everyone concerned. By the way, morning scones were great!!

With so many look alike motels on Sheridan, we booked this on the excellent TA reviews. This is the one. Great value for spacious spotless updated room. Finally a firm fresh king bed after a week of wok-like tiny queen beds. Kitchenette perfect for small meal preps, nice Thai decorative touches, friendly fast check in, tidy bbq area, 2 blocks from Esplanade. Rooms at the back are quiet, we were upstairs across bbq area. Staff helpful and unobtrusive. Scones in the mornings, free coffee all day, public kitchen next to reception where you can use a large fridge to store food, freeze ice blocks etc. All very helpful amenities. We had door at the back of room with balcony so you’d get a nice breeze thru the unit. Stay here, you won’t regret it.

Room Tip: Parking spots in the evenings after check-ins are highly coveted. Bit tight, but do-able. Back...
