Comfort Inn is my go-to hotel for short stays in any city. Very very pleased with this hotel. It was very clean and comfortable. One of our vacation days was rained out so we hunkered in and did laundry here. Highly recommend. Also, the buses to the beaches as well as the city center stop right in front, so that...

Comfortable beds and good air conditioner. fridges are provided, albeit in the wardrobe in one of the rooms we occupied. Very difficult if you want to eat in with one...

We flew in from Alice Springs and our flight only arrived around 8 pm. After 7 pm the reception desk at this hotel closes so we couldn't check it. Luckily enough there's a phone number displayed to call which we did. Within 2 minutes somebody showed up to help us with our room. Turned out they had been mailing us...

I stayed here purely because of the price, as I had a flight out of Cairns the next day. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality, given it was a cheaper hotel. Service was great, the woman at the counter was very obliging, especially given I checked in late and it was Good Friday. Room was clean and well stocked....

We spent most days in Cairns doing alk day trip so we really only used the room for sleeping. Reception is not 24 hour and rooms are all accessible from outside, so not contained within a hotel building. Room was clean and had a safe. Our room was next to the road and we seemed to get a lot of...

After evacuating north from Cyclone Debbie we had trouble finding a suitable hotel room for our family (major upscale brand hotels were all full with tour groups) in Cairns. We found an available clean room at this Comfort Inn. The minimal selection breakfast the next day was $12 per person, so we opted to eat elsewhere. We used Hotwire that...

Efficient and friendly front office staff who allowed a (very) early checkin with prior arrangement. Rooms are very reasonable $85/night and moderately spacious. Clean and functional. My only issue was no chair to sit on - either to work or to watch TV. There was a couch, but the layout of the room prevented you from sitting on the couch...

It was comfortable, clean the owner was friendly and helpful as were his staff. We paid $110 for 3 people, very reasonable. We were close to the shops and the Esplande. A few more chairs in the room wouldn't have gone astray. Rooms were quiet at night, they also had 2 swimming pools. Overall it was a great stay. Cairns...
