Reviewed 23 October 2017

This motel is set up like studio apartments, a great place for a family. The facility is a bit dated but you can't beat what you get - full kitchen, dining and living area, pool and a Jacuzzi plus a BBQ area.
The airport shuttles are offered just a few times during early hours, it would be nice if they can offer more.

Room Tip: There is no elevator if you happen to get a room on the 2nd floor.

Located one street from the water, the rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, kitchenette is good, bathroom is great (I love the soap & shampoo dispensers). My only complaint is no bedside switch for bedside light- it's situated on the opposite side of the room! Only a small detail but I like to read till I'm sleepy, switch off the light and sleep; it ruins it if you have to get up to switch off the light!
The staff are friendly, helpful, cooperative and I observed them being very patient with difficult clients. Recommended

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights over the long weekend. We were looking for something close to town and not too expensive. Our room was pretty much as expected. It was a little dated but was clean and comfortable. It had kitchen facilities plus a private outdoor area. Yes I ha Ve stayed in a lot more modern places, but we weren't looking for upmarket and this met the brief. I would stay again.

Good location not far from the water. Rooms largish and have a kitchenette (which is always a bonus). Room was clean and basic. The motel is dated and could do with a facelift. Staff friendly and helpful. Good value for money

I headed to Cairns for a week by myself and Stayed at the Reef Palms, The Staff were amazing, friendly and helpful, the whole hotel was very clean and tidy and the continental breakfast was great. It is a little bit out of town so its very quiet and relaxing, but I easily walked to Glenwoody's for tea or the Cock n Bull. the buses pick you up right outside for tours, I hired a car and getting around was very easy. I had my own balcony, kitchen and lounge room.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs ask for a down stairs room quite a few available
