Having travelled thru here many times driving Greyhound coaches it was good to get a chance to stay here. The facilities were good and I was very happy with the food and accommodation. Having to put the car in a secure compound was a worry but all was well in the morning.

This motel is one of the best operated places I have ever stayed in. Kerryn the owner runs a tight ship that reflects in the immaculate standard of the rooms and meals they provide. While some rooms maybe smaller, the renovation has bought them to life and the standard of the fittings in the rooms shows no expense was spared. The dinner buffet is the best I have ever seen on tour in Australia. So much to choose from. Her staff are highly trained and work so well as a team. I congratulate them all!! Thank you.

Have stayed here a few times over the years. The old dining room where the cook would wander out of the kitchen with a smoke dangling from their mouth has long since become Russian Jacks, a Halls Creek version of the Llama Bar in Perth. Always good service, a reasonable wine list including some drinkable numbers by the glass, and not bad tucker. The old motel rooms have had a birthday - there's a limit to what you can achieve with rows of old fibro motel rooms but they've done a pretty good job. The rooms have all been upgraded, comfortable beds, everything's clean, and the electronic door locks are high-tech - you can get your access code before you arrive and if you lob in the middle of the night, no need to be waking anyone up for keys. And if you pay with your credit card you can sneak off in the early morning and your tax invoice will hit your email account during the day. Only two choices in Halls Creek really - this is the right one.

Well we pulled into the place staff greeted us and helped us with our bags. The gardens were beautifully maintained not a thing out of place. The rooms were beautifully presented quality fittings and linen. Each room had its only little hidden treasure. Pool area and BBQ area great! We had a evening meal and breakfast there the food was amazing pleasant staff a real experience. Staff couldn't do enough for us to make our stay a memorable one. We will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms great but ask some rooms have a theme could be Elvis or Rolling Stones. Some have spas or...

We stayed here one night during our excellent Oz Tours camping trip as a special treat and change from camping. The dinner and breakfast were superb as was the accommodation. Thanks to Oz Tours for finding this gem. Our camping trip was fantastic.

I stayed in a "budget room" for 160$. It's very small and clean. Best for 1 person, but if you still love each other it's OK for 2 persons.

They do have larger rooms for 200$.

The front desk are friendly, efficiently and helpful.

I would like to stay here again.

The restaurant on the site is OK. ( Halls Creek only has 2 restaurants at all. The other one is at Kimberly Hotel ).

After a drive of 600 kilometres towing a caravan in 40 degree heat, my partner suggested that we get a motel room with an air conditioner. I hesitated but after such a long & exhausting drive and the the prospect of spending another night in our non air conditioned van I suggested she enquire at the reception to see if they would have somewhere to park our caravan. My partner returned telling me that this was no problem. Of course it wasn't when I found out later that the cost for the room was $165/ night.
The room is smaller than the hot caravan that we vacated so it works out to be a pretty expensive cost to enjoy air conditioning for 1 night. This area caters to the mining industry so the big wages allegedly being paid to the workers obviously has a follow on effect, not only for the room price but the prices being charged in their 'restaurant.' I would actually hazard a guess that the bills are being paid by the mining companies which would explain the blatent rip off being perpetrated here. For the unwary, tired traveller, this motel, which seems like an oasis in the desert, is more akin to a den of thieves waiting in the shadows to hijack your wallet. This is Halls Creek for goodness sake, yet I didnt see any Aboriginal workers being employed. Like another reviewer I did see plenty of foreign workers though, performing the cleaning tasks.
Shame on you Best Western!!
