I highly recommend this motel. The rooms are spacious, the a/c was already on which makes a big difference on a very hot day. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The rooms have tv, bar fridge, toaster, jug and wifi. The room was very clean.

Comfortable motel at the southern end of Broken Hill’s main street, Argent St. Very convenient for dining and an easy walk to TIC, museum and several art galleries. Welcoming and helpful hosts, whose dinner recommendations proved spot-on. A light breakfast is available for a small extra charge. Rooms were super clean and well set out with hand basin separate from...

Stayed 2 nights at this motel and found it roomy, newly decorated and very clean. The hosts were very friendly. On all our travels we have found that quite a lot of the Budget Chain motels have been re-furbished and are great. We would have no hesitation staying at Silver Spades Motel if visiting Broken Hill again. It is also...

Not the best motel, smelt of stale cigarettes, small tv, fridge was off which wasn't good for the fresh milk, floor had something sharp on it, but the bed was comfortable.. I'd recommend the owners to focus on eliminating the smell,and investing a decent vacuum cleaner as the motel is well located to the city centre.

The largest room we had during our interstate trip. Not the prettiest set-up with works in preparation on the street frontage but the room and bed were very comfortable. Great shower. Very friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Whilst on occasions street noise may be an issue, we stayed on a Friday night and had no problems.

We looked at a couple of other motels but settled on the Silver Spade for the night. Very clean and comfortable, good location, close to places for dinner,free wifi, and friendly staff. The light bulb blew out over the vanity, and was fix immediately. We would stay there again.

Stayed 3 nights, staff very friendly, close to town. Overcame initial surprise to find motel's open view different to website expectations - corner hotel now demolished (awaiting council upgrade plans) leaving open corner veiw (and potential traffic noise). Upon inspection, happy with room. Room refreshed and redone bathroom. Neighbour plumbing can be a little noisy at times.

Big room, comfy bed, excellent value! Staff very helpful. Plenty of free parking space, and great location on Argent street (the main street of the town). It's clean, with a nice small outside grass area with chairs for smokers.

Motel was clean and good value. Asked for early check in and when I did not arrive by the time requested they called to see if everything was okay. Plenty of car parking. Close to cafés and Clubs in Argent street and though in Main Street was very quiet.
