I can't recommend Port Douglas motel enough! Situated just off the main street in Port Douglas, Port Douglas Motel is in a great location for going out to restaurants and checking out the Marina and local shops as well as heading out for sightseeing. I believe Port Douglas Motel has been recently refurbished, and our room had fresh funky decor...

This was our second stay here -&we sent son and daughter-in-law last year. It just has all we could want: comfortable well-appointed room with plenty of space, sheltered parking, excellent pool and superb guest kitchen/bbq area. All spotless, friendly owners (very helpful even when we moved on a day early) and inexpensive by PD standards. Walking distance of shops, restaurants...

The room was very spacious, clean and cool! The grounds were great because they had a nice pool, free parking and amazing staff. We got a flat tire during our stay and the owners and staff helped us change the tire AND find a local auto shop near by. This hotel really is the best place to stay. It was...

We stayed at the Port Douglas Motel at very short notice, when there were floods and we couldn't get to Mossman. The owners made us very welcome, and were extremely helpful. It is an excellent and convenient motel within a short walk from the shops, restaurants and post office at PD. The room (with small outside seating area) was scrupulously...

This is a great find! The bed was comfortable, the shower hot, the location fantastic, and the decor was bright and colorful! What a nice change from sterile hotel rooms. It was within walking distance to the Reef Marina for our diving/snorkeling trips and restaurants, as well as seeing the bats fly over the harbor at sunset.

We have stayed here before, and plan on making it our regular accommodation when we travel up from Cairns. Its just off Macrossan Street, rooms are spacious, refurbished and spotlessly clean. Maria, Lillian and John are lovely hosts who make you feel right at home.
