Stayed for a week for work. Rooms are nice and comfortable and reasonably quiet. The staff were nice and helpful. Giving this place a 'very good' rating based on outback motel ratings. Would stay again as it is one of the nicer places in Longreach.

Back again for a one night stay - it was around 18 or 19 months since we last visited Longreach and I think my colleague, who made the booking, forgot we were not that keen on this place last time. However, the room didn't seem so bad this time around. Maybe I'm just getting too used to country motels now... More

Not many options for lodging in Longreach. This motel is just across the street from the train station, if arriving/departing on the Spirit of the Outback. Five minute walk into town. Rooms are what one would expect for a motel - clean, quiet, local freeview channels on TV, good aircon units which cooled down the room in 42C heat. Motel/rooms... More

Nice room, great location, friendly staff who happily called me when my room was ready earlier than check in time. Agree wth the comment about the airconditioners blowing on the guests head when trying to sleep, it's a bit uncomfortable. Other than that can't fault the place. :-)

We booked this motel only because it was directly across the road from the Longreach Station, and we were there only overnight as we were doing the wonderful Spirit of the Outback return rail journey from Brisbane (had a great 2:1 deal in 1st class). Would recommend that trip to anyone! Unfortunately we found the accommodation at the Longreach Motor... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay at Longreach Motor Inn. The room was clean and spacious and the bed super comfortable. Could barely hear the outside noise which is always a bonus. Breakfast was great also. Perfect location to take the train back to Brisbane.

Hard to know how to rate this place. We pre-booked a "Queen Executive" room for 4 nights. At $160 a night was the most expensive of all motels used from NSW to Longreach. It was a bit of a let down hardly befitting its Queen Executive title and not up to the standard of other less expensive motels.Walls had some... More

I spent a couple of nights with 6 other couples recently and was surprised to find after (i quote an answer from another review) 100's of thousand spent on upgrades that the place is in need of a lot more attention.
