Recently, there are a few negative feed backs on trip advisor, of which many are untrue, and false, some of the claim that our food are frozen, uncooked, is truly amazing what some people can come up with, our chef has 35 years of experience in cooking, we do not cook frozen meats, how is it possible that their dish is uncooked and frozen?

In peak times, we have up to 600 guests that stay in our rooms each week, up to 400 guests attend our restaurant each week, 99% of them are happy at the end of the day, and return the next day / time.  Yet, there are a few that compare us to 5 star hotels around the world and are not satisfied after the comparison.

Eldorado Motor Inn is a two to three star/budget motel, priced at from $140 a room, this is due to the high costs running the motel, due to remote location, high costs of utilities, extra pay to hire staff and freight costs of general goods, we have cut our profit to the lowest possible to make the business survive.

Our competitors motels in town are at 20% to 30% more costly than our price, they have renovated their rooms in the last few years, but in 2016, we have began to renovate our rooms too, and still continuing renovating all the rooms as of July 28th, there are plenty of works still to be done.

We do not try to achieve a 5 star rating, that would be unfeasible for motel/hotel Tennant Creek, to charge guests $600 a night, would be too expensive for a stop over stay.

However, for the price, we do try to achieve a comfortable stay with all the basic necessities covered, ease, convenience, safe and clean environment for all our guests.
