    We really liked everything about Lazy Lizard Motor Inn and would recommend it without hesitation and would certainly stay again if ever in Port Douglas. Penny and Jim were just lovely and made us most welcome; they were very interested in us and in what we were doing. Plenty of advice, help and recommendations too. Very difficult to find the right words or combination of words from the list above (Qu 3) to describe it properly or adequately.

    Nothing!

    The staff were very friendly and the room was very relaxing and the grounds were good to look at and well kept.

    Jim and Penny are excellent host. They answered all our questions via emails prior to our arrival. This motel is located outside of shopping area so it is quiet but near the famous beach. Our room is equiped with small kitchen.

    The bed is not very comfortable.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The host was very helpful and the room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the motel was in a quiet location.

    Not much, even though it wasn't 4 star like a lot of accommodation in Port Douglas, it was cheaper and no less comfortable than the many resorts in the town.

  • Older travelers

    A very clean unit with a handy self-contained kitchen.

    Just missing a light blanket on the bed.

    The accommodation was excellent and the staff/owners went out of their way to assist our every needs.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly owners, well appointed units, nice small pool.

    We had a car, without a car it would be a 25 minute walk to the town centre.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Everything! It's a beautiful place managed by lovely people! The rooms are huge, very comfortable, equipped and furnished with care and taste. The Lazy Lizard Motor Inn can be found just outside the town which is very convenient and the beach is just across the main road. We planned to stay there for 3 nights and stayed a week instead and enjoyed the beautiful swimming pool, the complimentary bicycles and the great conversations with our hosts! Port Douglas is a charming seaside resort and the Lazy Lizard Motor Inn is definitely The Place to Be! Can't wait to come back again - sooner than later...

    The Lazy Lizard is just what I wanted. It was very clean and quiet and I didn't have to spend the big bucks. The managers were very nice and concerned that we have a good stay.

  • Older travelers

    Value for money, allowed one night's stay. Owners were friendly.

    Needs a shuttle to town.

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly and helpful host and excellent value for money. Comfortable room with good facilities & nice pool and bbq area.

    Nothing. Would be a bit far out if you didn't have transport though.

    This is what a stay needs to be: very friendly staff (feels really at home), nice clean large room, exceptional service. A must if you are looking for a stay in Port Douglas.

    Not a single negative point to find.

    Warm welcome from Jim and Penny

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Friendly owners, spacious room.

    While being a motel, I.E. basically budget accommodation, at $140 per night I would still expect new soap & shampoo to be provided not just on the first night but on a regular basis. After all, guests pay the full price every night. Also, we were woken up at 8 A.M. by the cleaner playing her radio in the next unit while cleaning.
