I was kicked out of the downstairs pub by the manager because I had smoked medical marijuana for my chronic back pain. I was in the middle of a conversation with my co-worker. Not very happy with this treatment

The hotel is rated above its true value. Rooms dirty windows has not been cleaned for some time. The cleaners do not vacuum as a cockroach is still there after 3 day's. Receptionists not bad. Would not recommend this place to my friends. Sorry Darwin

We got asked to pay an extra $100 at the desk upon check in so that they can hold our card in case of room damages. We checked out on a Monday morning and got told that the $100 would be back by Tuesday as Monday was a public holiday. After days of not having this money back we called only to get told that it actually takes 10 days to go back into our account, which is very different to what we got told upon check out. We understand having to keep a card on file to cover any room damages etc but blatantly lying to guests is not great, if we had of known this prior to booking we would not have stayed here as $100 is a lot to lose on a holiday. customer service said there is nothing they would do as they never took our money from our account and released it when they promised, but they didn’t explain that the turn around is actually a full 10 days. Every other hotel I’ve stayed at has only ever charged a $1 card holding fee.

Ok so this hotel is not romantic and is dated. But if you’re not expecting too much it’s fine. This time the aircon in my room was dripping water so they moved me.
I’ve stayed here a lot and I believe it should be cheaper, but it’s ok. Free parking, good Aussie pub downstairs and you can grab a scooter and ride into town.
Compare prices to other nearby hotels and you’ll soon see it’s on the cheaper side, so unfair to compare with 4-5star in a bigger price bracket.
In peak season nothing is cheap in Darwin.

Room tip: Avoid ground floor as the carpark looks straight into your window.
