I stayed here for 2 nights in late November. After check-in and when I eventually found my room (it's a bit of a maze, but you do get given a map to help you out!) - I was reasonably satisfied.
The room was fine - not huge but big enough. Glad at this time of year to have aircon. Furniture was not brand new, but it wasn't shabby either and to be honest I think it was a pleasant change to the 'plastic fantastic' you get in so many hotels. Bathroom was a little tired but clean enough. Toilet had an irritating leak where every 30 minutes or so the cistern had to refill, but I kept the bathroom door shut and it was okay. The pools (there are 2 that I saw) looked enticing, but I didn't have time for a swim so can't comment further. Although there are certainly flashier places to stay in Broome, I think the Mercure was good for the money.
Hotel is an easy (but even at 7am hot and humid) 10-15 minute walk to the town centre. I had a very nice meal at Matso's Brewery which is only a 2 minute walk away. Try the Chilli Beer at your peril!
I went to Cable Beach on the 2nd night - which for your info is quite a distance away on the opposite side of the headland - so you'll need a car or a taxi to get there from the hotel. I enjoyed a camel ride, followed drinks at the Sunset Bar and a nice dinner at the Zoo Bar & Cafe.
