4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Booked a Queen for 3 nights. Upon arrival we were advised that because it was a bit quiet we were upgraded to a King. Needless to say we were ecstatic. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Undercover parking was provided right outside the front door. Staff were very helpful. Highly recommended and would stay again.

Travelling solo from Darwin to Cairns in my little Toyota Yaris, with no cruise control and just getting over a broken ankle meant short driving sessions. Stopped at Mt Isa whilst I decided which way to go - the tried route or the Burke & Wills route. Pulled into the Spinifex and although a bit more expensive than I wanted... More

When you are working far away from home and welcoming hotel room is worth more than the price paid. Spinifex apartments were outstanding. Clean, bottled water in the fridge, tea and coffee, Foxtel, air conditioned AND a TV in every room. Nice change as most apartments fail to account for adults sharing apartment accommodation - not just families. All staff... More

Stayed at Spinifex 1 night with a friend who was working in Mount Isa, I can definitely say that after driving for two days I was very happy with their accommodation. The room was spotless, beds were very comfortable and the staff we met were lovely and helpful with any questions I had. Nicest place in Isa, would definitely stay... More

stayed for 2 weeks in the serviced apartments at the back of the motel. Linda on reception was very helpful. Apartments have good aircon , large fridge, good sized washing machine and drier and a kitchen that is more than adequate to cook meals in. Also have a library to swap books and a collection of current and old DVDs... More

This motel is very well located just a short walk to Outback Isa and the underground hospital. Shops just a bit further. However, there is no trading on Sundays...so be warned. Our room is very spacious with a king size bed and a complete set of crockery and cutlery, microwave and iron and ironing board. The restaurant on the premises... More

We stayed at the Spinifex for 2 nights R&R while on our trip around Queensland. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and great facilities. Would definitely recommend saying there. Laundry facilities were great. Can't rate the restaurant as we didn't eat there.

the Spinifex appeared to be the best Motel in Mt Isa. It is the most modern & sumptuous of its neighbors. The staff were really friendly & service was excellent. The BBQ area was great & the bar/ dining area well laid out. Our room was very close to the H"wy & so we were awakened a half dozen times... More
