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.
