“Definitey good value for your buck”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

As part of a transcontinental motorcycle tour, I stayed six nights at the Value Inn (6.4.14 - 12.4.14) and found my stay a pleasant one. My room, on the first floor (# 50), was very small and reminded me constantly of a boat cabin rather than a motel room. However, it had all the essentials, including tea making facilities. As I hardly spent any time indoors, I can’t really comment on the cleanliness per se. However, sleep quality was only average due to the hotel’s central location and a few inconsiderate other travellers. I often slept with the A/C off (too noisy) although this is not approved by management (think of humidity and mould development). Check-in was straight forward and whenever I had a question or request, the reception staff was friendly and accommodating. Watch out for a Dawn Fraser look-alike…. this lady is always ready for a friendly chat. There is a small pool on the premises which, unfortunately, was closed for most of the time during my stay due to maintenance work. I went to the Nightcliff Pool instead which was wonderful. I paid AUD$502.00 for 6 nights’ accommodation which I found very good value for money – considering the motel’s central location. I lived in Darwin for 18 months (1972-73) and was amazed by the transformation this city has made since Cyclone Tracy (X-mas 1974). But back to my review. In Summary: I have no hesitation in recommending the Value Inn to fellow travellers.

Booked a triple room in Darwin at Value Inn, it was last minute so had no choice or I would have gone elsewhere. The room is very small so no room to open a small suitcase, never mind 3 (we were 3). Impossible to open a window and so the AC had to be on 24 hours. plus It is placed right over our heads, so hard to sleep.
We stayed 3 nights and found bugs each night. Staff friendly but offered to take care of the bug problem only at check out.. a little late !

Not very clean. Very expensive and no early check in.
Small swimming pool area with chairs and tables, a welcoming break at the end of the day, but lots of ants around trash area, close to seating area. A large box with fresh towels each morning, but most often empty.

The only positive point: its location on Mitchell street.

Room was basic and a bit cramped, but all I needed. Comfortable bed, A/C, fridge & TV.

The room smelled a little but I think that is part of being in Darwin.

It is great having the facilities next door available to us (back packers with pool etc..).

We found the rooms clean, and the staff helpful.
However we considered it to be accommodation for young people.
It is very central, but basic.
It was inconvenient not being able to access the back gate, and having to go through the next door premises to our rooms.
At a cheaper price, for younger people, the accommodation would be ideal.
For older "travellers" the convenience was good, but price did not match the quality.

The reviews are far too high for this hotel. I've stayed at some disgusting accommodations in my life, usually at a price that was worth the sacrifice, but this one is at the top of the list. The bedding and shower made my skin crawl. There were boogers on the wall, a pubic hair in one of the beds and it reeked of body odor. All this for a very average rate. I think the "value" in Value Inn really depends on your perspective and what you are willing to deal with.
On the plus side, it's centrally located (but loud, next to a club) and has free parking.

Room 608, to small for $160.00. it is basically a little box. No space to move around.
Check in time is 2.00pm. I arrived at 10.00am after a long 5 hrs flight and was told by the receptionist that if i want to check in early i have to pay $30.00. what a rip-off.

Room too small,for $ 149 ??????? not worth it. For that price you can get better room,location in other place in Australia. Thank God we only stay for one night due to our flight schedule. So surprised and dissappointed with the condition of the hotel. The air con was old model,so couldn' t adjust the temperature.

Room Tip: Good for solo traveler
