We paid $100 for a quick stop over from Perth to Brisbane. This being our cheapest accommodation on the whole trip we weren't sure what to expect but it turned out to be our best room so far. When we opened the door to our room we were very pleasantly surprised. This motel is the usual with parking at your... More

After looking at the first room we were offered which we thought a little small, we chose room two which was much larger. It had two single beds and a double, a microwave, a fridge and toaster. It would be perfect for a family and was quiet. The swimming pool was warm but needed to be de-leafed and all rooms... More

Visited this motor inn on the way back from Silverton, Easy check in and friendly staff. FREE WIFI and the room was a great size with a queen bed and a single bed. Large tv and a fridge. Pool area is quiet but I would strongly recommend that the pool gets a revamp as it has lost a lot of... More

Room was clean and tidy although could have done with some repairs and maintenance. The carpet was in need of replacement and the fridge, although clean had no door racks so difficult to stand up drinks. The bathroom was in need of repair especially the shower rose which sprayed water everywhere and couldn't be adjusted. The hotel also has quite... More

I have stayed here several time and in different rooms, the rooms are quiet good and have been updated, nice looking pool in the middle , although I didn't use it, it is off the main road and in a side street so no truck noise, the motel is connected to either a restaurant or pub bistro , what ever...

Travelling around Oz with a camper trailer, we booked into the hotel as we arrived in Broken Hill on a very cold and wet night and didn't feel like setting up in the rain. The room for the price was very good with a very comfortable bed, and my partner liked the extras like moisturising lotion and free laundry and... More

I was in room 17, tucked away in a corner so you can't park in front of the room. The room stank of old drains and worse, each time you went into the room the smell hit you. The room was OK but the bathroom above the shower was moldy. Won't want to stay there again.

After a long day on a morning flight and attending a conference in Broken Hill it was lovely to be greeted by reception with the easy sign in process and information of the local area. The room itself smelt fresh and clean and presented very well. I am so glad I've booked into this motel, it is just what I... More

Stayed at Desert Sands Motor Inn on spec. We had a twin room apartment which was comfortable and a good night's sleep. The Motor Inn is part of a Hotel Complex so we used the restaurant in the hotel (which was OK). The Motel was like most Motels,nothing special, but for 1 or 2 nights stay in Broken Hill it... More

We were recently visiting for a friends wedding and decided to stay the night in a motel instead of with family and made the weekend of it. We spent 2 nights in one of the spa rooms and we loved it. The price being very reasonable we didnt expect much but once we got to our room we were pleasantly... More
