Palms City Resort or Travelodge Mirambeena, thoughts please

Just wondered if anyone had any opinions on either of the two above accoms as we are staying in Darwin for 5nights in early November and have narrowed it down to these two.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you may have on these...I appreciate it.

I have stayed at both places and would definitely recommend the Travelodge for a number of reasons:

The rooms are that bit nicer

They are a bit cheaper

The service is much better

The outdoor pool area is superior

One disadvantage with Palms City Resort are those cabins next to the road, you can get a lot of traffic and noisy people at night time. Those inside are quieter.
