The rooms are rundown, could do with some TLC. Plumbing makes noises when there used, teabags were old and damp. An excellent location, near everything. The whole place needed a good renovation, we felt. The staircase got very wet when it rained so the carpet got very wet we noticed when we were using the stairs going up and down... More

Thank you for your recent review of our apartments. Inn Cairns is an older style building and both maintenance & renovation works are constantly on-going. Because all our units are built around an atrium to take advantage of our normally great weather the emergency staircase does get wet when it rains. Fortunately the lift area on each of the floors...

When we arrived, we followed the out of hours instructions for check in however because the buzzer was broken, there was no answer. We continued to try while ringing a 1300 number that was on a sticker on the sign. We waited for 45mins before the manager came down to let us in. When she arrived she was extremely rude... More

While I understand your frustration with the after-hours check-in procedure I'd like to address a couple of points. Firstly, you arrived on Good Friday which was a very busy day and we did have a considerable... More

I booked the Inn Cairns for a one night stay as it had various reviews of 4 a 4.5. I was personally disappointed based on my expectations from the reviews. On arrival by taxi, I was immediately concerned as there is a nightclub and tattoo parlor below. Not so much noise but walking back to room late at night. Checking... More

I arrived after hours but was easily able to enter and collect my key. The room is a typical beach apartment, clean and well stocked. My room faced the Lake Street and was incredibly loud at night, good thing the bedroom is in the back. The location is great! Central to restaurants, shops and the pier. It cost me $23... More

We were sad to say goodby to the staff as they were so kind and helpful. The apartment was a perfect size, clean comfortable, and had a great view of the mountains.
