Parking is directly outside room door. Room was comfortable, TV was new, bed was comfortable. Heater worked well. Shower was great. Receptionist was lovely. Unfortunately there wasnt a restaurant at the motel but the receptionist recommended a few places.

My children, mother and I had an overnight stay at Motel Carnarvon recently. We were very happy with the room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to take advantage of a last minute cancellation and were very grateful for the accommodation. We have stayed here before and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: Book well in advance as Roma is a mining town with accommodation hard to find.

I booked 3 rooms for 7 people to share. All of us were happy with the comfort of the rooms. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Each of the rooms had a front and back door. The back door opened into a big grassed backyard. The rooms were about $130 for 2 adults but many of the other motels seemed to be much more expensive so reasonable value for Roma.
I was advised to book well in advance in Roma and nearby towns which are experiencing a population explosion with employees from many mining companies requiring accommodation and willing to pay whatever it takes.
We went to the nearby bowls club for dinner which was excellent and good value.
In the morning some of us went into the main street and had a nice breakfast at Bakerama - the food was good and the place spotlessly clean.

We stayed here on Saturday 30/7/11 enroute to a funeral in Quilpie. I was surprised to learn that there is an extreme shortage of accommodation in Roma from Monday to Thursday inclusive, with many motels booked out for months. Motel Carnavon is good basic clean accommodation in Roma, but the shower is sensational - like standing under a waterfall, which was very enjoyable after a long drive.

I wasn't expecting much as we were looking for just basic accommodation for one night in Roma, however I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this motel was.
The room was very spacious (for a motel room) and had all the necessary facilities for one night, microwave, kettle, cups (but no cutlery except spoons). It was great to have a little space to move around without tripping over all our baggage for a family of 4. Also quite spacious grounds even with children's play area, swing etc.
Definitely a good choice.

We just needed a place to spend the night during a road trip. Picked Carnarvon for price, availability and location. Was pleasantly surprised how well equipped and spotless the room and grounds are! I would gladly pick this motel for an extended stay.

Room Tip: Rooms 31-38 seem brand new!
