Stayed there only because we arrived at Darwin airport in the middle of the night and wanted to be in bed as soon as possible. Couldn't fall to sleep for long beacuse of old aircon unit working terribly loud. Bed was comfortable and bedsheets crispy clean. But that was the only good thing. Bathroom was rundown, fridge placed very close to the bed. We could open its door not even half way out. Next morning we asked at the reception if there is bus service to take us to the city where we had better accomodation booked. We were told the bus stop is just outside the motel and is leaving in few minutes. We waisted almost 40 min waiting at the bus stop. It didn't come, because it was Saturday local market day and its route was changed. We were misinformed. Eventually, a taxi driver stopped to tell us to go to next stop. We ended up walking all the way to the city in +34C.
