Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Travelers be warned. The hotel will still charge you for the room even if you already paid for the room in full through a third party like Expedia. The Hotel does not care if you paid for the room twice, they will get their money from Expedia and you. And they will not give you a refund no matter how much proof you have. Thats just greedy. Will not have any of my people stay there. The place is now off limits.

I stayed at the Cross-roads for a night and ended up not wanting to leave. Friendly staff, nice setting and the views were spectacular. The pool was the highlight for me. Very refreshing and therapeutic too with the mountain views and green grass like carpets in nature. Only hiccup was the flat screen did not work, other than that, I fell in love with Cross roads and will be staying there more often on my business trips to Lae.

Crossroads is average, nothing luxurious, but it has all the basic amenities. Everything it lacks, it makes up for with awesome customer service. The staff is very nice. Crossroads calls itself a transit hotel and I was there for about 2 weeks. Plus, I was in a large group so I think we overwhelmed the hotel a little bit. The rooms could be updated, there were a lot of inconsistencies, with people having different experiences at the same hotel. My room had no water pressure or hot water, but others did. Also, most of the gym equipment needs to be thrown away and replaced. Additionally, some more vegan/vegetarian items on the menu would be awesome.

I work in Lae on a fly-in, fly-out basis, staying in a small house adjacent to the Crossroads Transit Hotel. While the house has all the amenities one needs, working 12 hour days does not entice you to cook dinner. The Crossroads has a small bar, named as the Puk Puk Bar, which serves meals, engineered in the Hotel's restaurant. I have eaten there many times, with dishes ranging from Chicken Parmigiana, potato wedges, stir-fried veges, curries, and a variety of other dishes. They even used to have a Vietnamese Banh Mi on the menu, but fortunately that has disappeared (charging $15 for something that costs less than a dollar on the streets of Ha Noi). Which brings me to my point: there is no rationale to the pricing of each dish on the menu; all dishes range from PGK40 - PGK45 per dish, irrespective of the cost. Notwithstanding, the staff are friendly and attentive, and the food actually tastes ok. And the only options are to drive 10 miles to town if you want something to eat.

We stayed at the Crossroads Hotel for a week and found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and tidy and we had a lovely view of the pool and mountain ranges to wake up too. They were very helpful in the organizing of a number of buses trips for our group into Lae. A highlight was watching some of the helicopters transporting workers to the mines in the mountains, we found it fascinating watching them land and take off.

Nice quiet bar beside the pool. Few coldies and a great pizza. Excellent way to put in a Sunday arvo. Friendly staff and good service. Great location away from the centre of Lae and on the way to the airport

Weekend drive up from Lae to 9mile Cross Roads for the 1st time was awesome. Quiet for place Swimming 🏊 Pool at edge 😍 Drinks a SP is quit expensive but specials available Food, expensive but okay One thing that annoys me are the flies where the cushions are.. I don't know why? Also, don't like being starred at by female pool staff. Feel annoyingly uncomfortable to enjoy myself. Lastly, I love the site... Perfect 👌 view towards the mountains ⛰ watching the sun set... ❤️💯👍

For an expensive Hotel this is very average, but having said that choices are limited Booking was handled by my Company, and check in was fast and efficient, room pretty average, has a panic alarm above the bed i guess in case of intruders !! ?? Few things in the room i was unclear with, so asked the numerous staff milling around outside the room in the corridor, none were even remotely interested in helping, just said "Call Reception" Only there for 3 nights, Bed was comfy and the air conditioning worked ok, food was average but acceptable.

My first visit to Papua. Stayed for 5 nights in February 2018. The poolside rooms give the best view. I do not have previous reference but seeing the mountain in the morning and in the evening is really soothing experience. Buffet is adequate. Nothing to shout but given the choice of going on 10-minute trip to town or having your meal in the hotel - no brainer. I sleep early. Having my room near the pool bar is not a good idea as the ding is quite loud. Those who like quiet night could ask for rooms further from the pool bar. Staff are friendly and helpful. WiFi password changes every day. Signal is good.
