Our flight was delayed by 9 hours as a result we used the motel to sleep. The beds were comfy and it was dark enough to allow us to sleep during the day. The motel offered speedy pick up and drop off to the airport which was really handy.

We stay at Best Western every time we go to Darwin from Kununurra where we live. We dont have any complaints about the service or accommodation but think it would be great if they had some sort of loyalty card for frequent visitors

The Best Western Airport Motel is a great place to stay, especially when flying in/out of Darwin. It is located close to the airport with a free shuttle service. One of the best things about having a reservation is the ability to leave your vehicle there whilst you travel away. The staff are ALWAYS friendly, courteous and extremely helpful, with... More

Very good location and price considering how close to the Airport it is. I always stay here because of this and the no hassle feel of staying here. It is only a 15 minute trip the the City center which is handy for the day trips!!

I really enjoy staying at this friendly, clean and comfortable hotel. All the rooms have a balcony, some rooms overlook the lovely pool. Plenty of parking, easy to find. The hotel has a lovely bar and restaurant next door. Very close by is a 24 hour petrol station.

Later checkout than 11:00 am are charged... More
