Looks shabby from the outside, but this place is my "leaving town" motel that I stay at before flying out the next day. Right above Little Riccardo's, one of Cairns' best Italian Restaurants, I ring through for my Pizza delivery to my room.

We have stayed here on a couple of occasions. The rooms are clean, A/C is efficient, plenty of good pressure hot water. Tea and coffee makings are provided and the room has a small but efficient refrigerator. On-site parking is a problem if you are driving a bigger SUV. Management could not be more helpful. Went out of their way...

It was the worst hotel I have ever seen! The room was full of lizards & cockroaches and very dirty. The blankets where dusty and the parts of the room were broken. There were some fishy people moving out as well. I think it's the worst hotel to be visited. Saikat Basu, New Delhi, India

Hey, this is not a five star but it doesn't pretend to be. It's clean, the folks were efficient and left the key exactly where they said they would as we had a late flight and the kettle, tea and coffee were perfect. (They also had little milks for us in the fridge.) For this price and for a place...

We stayed here for a week and it was nice enough and the staff was friendly. Our room was clean, though any time we needed our room cleaned we had to ask (the staff didn't just do it automatically like most hotels). However, that's just a minor quibble with an otherwise pleasant stay.

Adobe Motel is nice place to stay on a budget with clean rooms bathroom and shower and mini fridge and LCD TV and comfortable beds everything you need in a Motel. There is laundry facilities and pool next to the restaurant which isnt a problem as the pool is open until 5 when the restaurant opens. So people are not...

When I'm submitting a review I'm rating it based on the claimed stars of the venue. This is a budget accommodation facility yes but they are honest in their claims, clean room, great location to cairns central and the airport. We needed a one night crash and burn place waiting for our flight and the Adobe was right then exactly...

A fairly standard Motel only a ten minute drive from Cairns Airport. Two storey building with a Restaurant at the front, twenty four hour check-in and a saltwater swimming pool. Large comfortable rooms with the usual accoutrements. Queen Beds or singles. Walk-in shower area in a moderately sized bathroom. Staff are helpful and went out of their way to help....

I will not stay here again. The check out time is 09:30 which I find way too early. The room was smelly but was supposed to be a non smoking room. The rooms are cheap looking and I did look twice to check if my bed was clean! It was so so!! There is a "pool" available but it feels...

We chose Adobe for its cheap price and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was big and clean. You get what you pay for with the dated interior. The staff are very detached, you barely have to speak three words to them, they hand you your key and take it back at the end. The walk to the esplanade took...
