Obviously in this part of the world, you set your expectations fairly low. By PNG standards, Pacific Gardens is a solid, if a bit unremarkable choice. Rooms are big, clean, and well equipped, if lacking any particular wow factor. Good water pressure in the showers, which is a rarity even at this end of the price scale in PNG. Staff generally friendly, but not hugely helpful when it came to organising tours and onward transport. Food in the restaurant was OK, but a bit pricey compared to the quality. Most of the guests are linked to the Pacific helicopter company - you're not likely to meet many other tourists out here, unless you come in festival week! The rather more shabby and dated Birds of Paradise hotel in the centre of town may well have been a better bet - nicer garden, terrace and a pool. It's worth travelling out to see some of the local villages, and the Asaro Mud Men. Most get visitors very infrequently, so your money goes a long way, and you'll get a pretty authentic experience. It's worth checking the local security situtation - very mixed reports from the embassies about which roads are safe to travel on.
