We stayed at Jibreen Hotel before crossing the desert to Salalah, an 888 km drive (distance sign in front of the hotel). We chose it merely as a final stopover before the boredom but were pleasantly surprised: clean, incredibly big room (actually an apartment with two rooms, large bathroom and a small kitchen), all for a reasonable price.
Jibreen is a short drive from Nizwa, Bahla and al-Hamra, so it's easy to check out the region based here.
Breakfast was not top notch but very sympathetic with two guys running the show in a quiet dining room, other operating an omelette station. Didn't need to hit the road hungry.
