it is what it is

Pros: Close restaurants, Free breakfast
Cons: No free Internet, Noisy, Poor breakfast
it is exactly as described and as some other people have commented. I purchased the single room with community facilities. It was a poor dingy room, with a poor bed, with community restrooms (toilet and showers), and no maid service provided. In return, it was a very cheap place to stay. After going to Cairns, I found that there are many, many options for reasonably priced rooms. So I would not stay here again. This hotel does have nicer rooms with private baths and maid service, so those may be OK, but I am not knowledgeable enough about those to comment.
