Check in went smoothly with a very pleasant young lady who also provided me with the Internet code. It's an average sized room, modern and practical. You are in the tropics and the Outback so there are going to share with a few bugs. Pity that no insecticide was provided. The room was clean although I did note some toilet...

Unfortunately I didn't have a very good experience staying at the Edorado Motor Inn. I arrived late and was horrified to find that my room was literally crawling with creepy crawlies, there were at least 15 crickets and two cockroaches in the room and did I mention there was a baby frog jumping around all over the carpet. Needless to...

I was wondering what this motel would be like after reading some of the reviews - I think it must depend on whether or not you get a renovated room. I thought the new owners were very friendly and eager to provide a decent service. We travelled in the wet season so it was nearly empty, and had a nice...

This is part of the Golden Chain Group, which is a surprise going by our experience. On arrival we noted the glass in front office door was cracked and broken and held together with gaffa tape. The reception process was lengthy with the receptionist trying her best. Our room was at the back of the block, but while the room...

Visiting Tennant Creek quite regularly for work, I can say that this hotel has improved in leaps and bounds since the new owners have taken over. They are working hard to clean everything up and the rooms that have been renovated are great for Tennant Creek. The hotel will improve over time as the new owners do more. The Chinese...

I live 255kms from Tennant Creek and overnight there regularly. I have stayed at all the motels over many years, and this is the pick of them. Under new ownership for the last 9 months, I can notice the improvements each time I stay (4 nights a month average).This is not luxurious, but clean and tidy, with pleasant staff. Check...

The price is too high for the current standard. $140 per night. The room was clean enough but the facilities & decore are really out dated and in need of refurbishment which made it feel unclean. The bed was uncomfortable with a springs felt in mattress. Tiles were broken & lifting, bits of board/wood added to sections of cupboards. The...

Not a very well maintained motel . Room had a very pungent smell which indicates that room has not been aired out for a long time. Had to kill two spiders that came from under the microwave. We were advised that they had a restaurant next door,when we went to look for it we nearly missed it as the outside...

I think this motel was overpriced at $140 per night especially as things were only so so in my room. The front door was sliding glass type and the lock wasnt very secure. The bathroom was old and run down and the toilet leaked onto the floor .... The bed was comfy and clean and the aircon was great. I...
