Alternative Accommodations FAQs – Motels

How much does it cost to stay at a motel in Cairns?

Most people choose to stay in motels to save a couple bucks and bank on a good deal. If you’re looking for cheap motels in Cairns, why not level up your savings and your spot by booking a Hotwire Hot Rate hotel deal instead? When you book a Hot Rate, you end up getting way more bang for your buck. You’ll feel like you’re getting surf ‘n’ turf for kids’ menu prices, even when you book at the last minute. Because the longer you wait to book a Hot Rate deal, the bigger the savings get—an average savings of 60% versus booking a listed rate two weeks earlier. 


What are the best motels to stay in Cairns?

Even the best Cairns motels are sure to leave you wanting more. Instead of waking up on the wrong side of regret in a cheap motel, get more than you expected and book a Hotwire Hot Rate hotel deal. Looking for big-time amenities like sparkling pools, high-end gyms, or primo locations? You won’t get that with any ol’ motel in Cairns. But when you book a Hot Rate deal, you could get a 4-star hotel for a 2-star price. You’ll be saying, “Motel, who?” as you luxuriate in a fluffy hotel robe.

You won’t find out the exact name of the spot until after you’ve booked, but expect to really score. 


How can I find weekly rate motels in Cairns?
