I spent 3 nights here is a studio apartment that was newly fitted out. What a beautiful room! Comfy couch and bed, nice hardwood furniture and great heating/cooling system. This motel is better than most city hotels and well worth the price.
The only constructive feedback I would provide is that there was no phone in the room and no hotel directory. The sole gripe (and this is not this Motel specific) is that the wifi was not complimentary.
Aside from that, the Red Earth Motel was comfortable, well appointed and the room layout and facilities well considered. Would I stay here again? Without a doubt, yes!

A well run family motel. Our unit was very clean, modern and comfortable. We stayed a number of days in August 2013. Michael and his team made the stay so much more enjoyable even going that extra mile by assisting in locating where we could leave our vehicle whilst we went on an organised 3 day 4 wheel drive tour. Thank you Michael and team.

What a relief to get to Broken Hill and find the Red Earth Motel. Check-in was a breeze. We arrived after a long days drive and went to reception and were given the keys so we could get in straight away. No forms to fill in, no showing of credit cards. Just a make yourself comfortable and fix it up in the next day or two. The room was, as stated in the title, clean and comfortable. They also supplied 600ml of fresh milk for tea and coffee. Much better than the usual UHT rubbish that is sometimes given. The pool looked inviting and clean, but was a little cold as the solar had just been turned on. Is only a short walk to the main street for meals.
All in all, a very nice place to stay. Will be recommending Red Earth to our friends.

Went to broken hill for a conference and was so pleasantly surprised at the high quality accommodation offered at Ref Earth. Knowing this is available, my family and I are going back very soon and will stay where I know cleanliness and service are spot on. Fantastic!

This establishment reminds you that there is another way to design and run a motel - their way! Unlike the usual fare (even the better of them) this motel is spacious, intelligently designed, beautifully appointed and well equipped. Michael your host is very capable and friendly, and ensures you have everything you may need for a comfortable stay. Located on the edge of town, but still a comfortable walk from the highlights and eating houses, it is much more like an expensive B&B and represents excellent value for money.

Room Tip: The newest rooms are numbered 13 and up and are further away from the road. As I understand it, all...

I am starting to doubt the veracity of tripadvisor reviews after staying a couple of nights in this motel. Yes it is clean, new and has larger than average rooms and a very very good bed.

But terms such as 'wow' 'awesome' in reviews in reviews that are over the top make me wonder how often these people get out or if they live in a cardboard box - either way they are getting too much oxygen. Maybe too long in Broken Hill drinking the over-chlorined water or crap wine served in any of the towns rip-off hotel dining rooms?
