This hotel is a good value. I checked all the places I could find in town...didn't take long. First and foremost for us, they offered free unlimited wifi for all devices. This is the first time I've encountered that in the NT. Most places will use 4net or some other service that charges $6/hr...for one device. The speed is good for browsing most of the time. Aside from this the clean ensuite room is a good size with a fridge, water heater, shampoo and soap. Shower had hot water and was a good pressure. TV has decent channels. A/c provided. Breakfast (toast, cereal, fruit, birsch muesli, tea, coffee, and juice!).
I would challenge you to find a better deal in town. The caravan park across the street had a kitchen, but the bathroom and showers were a bit of a walk. The other large hotel at the other end of town wanted to charge $150 with no wifi. I tried to checked Three Way, the settlement north of here...I think they literally had one caravan park, but the girl would not allow me to see the room before booking. We drove past the Wauchope Hotel, an hour south of TC, and the exterior did not look appealing. For us, El Dorado was the best choice.
Chris and his son, Jason, have been nothing but polite and helpful. El Dorado has great customer service and provides many free amenities other places either charge outrageously for or don't provide at all. Even though this ended up being one of the more expensive places we stayed at (remember, budget traveling), we felt that we got a great value.
