Run Down

Pros: Staff were nice and food good
Cons: Replace aircon with split systems, general maintenance.
Location: Great close to food, good parking.
Shower tap came off, air conditioner noisy, in general room is run down. Its a pity as it uses to be really nice and top rated in the early days.

Not much option

Pros: The staff member that apologised for my 20 min wait to order my dinner.
Cons: Everything.
Location: Who would know. There was no compendium in the room!
I stayed in this motel 13 years ago & nothing has changed. It is in dire need of a makeover. Not just a makeover but the simple things that one would expect like tissues & a compendium of operating things in the room along with points of interest included were missing. The built in furniture had seen better days with the wood disintegrated where the tea & coffee making facilities were housed. Stains on the carpet. The reception was closed at 6pm when I arrived so I had to make my way to the tavern to collect the key. I rang the tavern to order room service & was put on hold for 20 minutes before I could place my order. The bathroom was 80's style. The room rate definitely didn't reflect what was on offer. I have been told that the rooms will be renovated soon. Let's hope that they include the 1%'era that currently aren't included.

Oasis Hotel

Pros: Close to town and Olympic Dam
Cons: Showers would be nice to have a little higher.
Nice Hotel in the centre of town, older accommodation features but comfortable bed and Pillows. Perfect for short visits.

The whole place needs renovating.

Damaged and water affected chipboard everywhere, dead insects all over the carpet. Run down and expensive.

Good Location

Pros: The location
Cons: everything from the reception to the dining
Location: location was the reason we chose it - it was close to all amenities.
It was over priced - $175 for what was a very tired room looking out over a main thoroughfare - It reminded me of the the accommodation going across the Nullarbor in 1992. Air-conditioner was very noisy, TV had to be very loud. I could go on and on.

OK but can't recommend it.

Pros: It was somewhere to sleep.
Cons: Needs information folder to explain motel facilities & eateries in town. Luckily had thermos of soup & bread so ate in our room.
Location: In middle of town. Don't know about activites didn't leave room. Seemed quiet.
It was a Saturday evening, before the time stated for latest check in and nobody was at Reception, which was not easy to find. I had to drive around the complex twice before I could see it. Go to the restaurant the sign said. I went to the restaurant and they sent me across to the hotel to pick up the key to my room. I went to the bar and asked and was then told, Oh you have to go to the cashier in the pokies room. Great welcome to the motel - not. There was no info to help us know what was available at the motel or in the town in the way of eateries etc.. The provisions that you would normally expect, were not up to scratch. To top it off we awoke in the morning to find that a sliding glass door that opened almost straight on to the footpath, wasn't locked, and couldn't be locked. Two positives were 1. The staff were nice, and not rude, and 2. the room was clean. Unfortunately the only motel in town. I'll try the caravan park next time.
