Had a great stop off at palms motel, darwin

Palms Motel, Darwin
It was great. The weather wet, cool and miserable and after only booking the room about a half hour before we got there we were given an upgraded room with a kitchenette that was nice and close to the office. The gentleman at the desk was very friendly and helpful.

A step back in time
The Palms is a 70's style motel which feels pretty original! Visually grey and dismal. The room I had was small, crowded with old furniture, poorly lit and felt like a cell. The bathroom was a decent size which was a saving grace though I did have to dislodge a cockroach from my towel. The Palms is relatively close to the city centre and has a pub and bottle shop opposite Checkin was pleasant and friendly and I think the place believes it really does rate 3 stars but outside Darwin it would be lucky to rate 1
