    « Friendly Staff & Great Location »

    I stayed here for 3 nights on a work trip. Room was very clean, good size and staff at the desk were friendly. Room also has a kitchenette area with microwave and tea/coffee making facilities. The motel is in a very central location so very easy to walk to nearby restaurants and the shopping centre. WIFI was a bit slow.

    5
    « Excellent Accomodation »

    I'm over all satisfied with the room, beds, linen and set up in the room. Staff at reception and room service are very friendly and hospitalized. Excellent place to stay and I recommend friends and families to stay at Best Western.

    « Great Location »

    Stayed 3 nights on a business trip. The rooms were very comfortable with kitchen / Laundry. The rooms very modern , clean and spacious. Great location in CBD easy walking distance to shops , restaurants and bars. If travelling to Karratha highly recommend this place to stay.

    « Very good indeed! »

    On a business trip to Karratha and found this motel to be very well located, very clean and very good customer service. It is a traditional regional motel and this makes it very comfortable. The staff are friendly and although there is not a restaurant on site there are a range of choices close by. Will certainly stay here on return visits.

    « Great place »

    I visited best western Karratha for work. The service was pleasant, the rooms were clean and tidy and the wifi worked very well. It is very close (walking distance) to a great coffee shop and very nice restaurants. I will be back.

    « Not a bad little place to stay »

    Stayed here for overnight stay while in Karratha. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly. The only problem is they do not have dining or bar facilities. The highlight is the Ibis next door that has a restaurant and pub with charge back to Best Western.

    « Noisy aircon »

    I didn't read the previous reviews until after checking in. But like others, my aircon was far too noisy to leave on overnight. Lucky it wasn't the middle of summer. I didn't bother contacting reception as I had already been moved once as my door lock wasn't working. The room looks like it's had a cosmetic facelift but it needs new aircon, and possibly also new shower As it wasn't the best. Will probably look elsewhere next time.

    « thanks for a pleasant stay »

    « Little gem »

    Great staff, comfortable rooms, good Wifi. Only negative there is no dining room Staff were exceptionally helpful and courteous on check in. Di d not have my Best Western client number on me and they took the effort of looking it up rather than take the easy way out when I said I could retrieve it. Bed was comfortable and very little external noise resulting n a good night sleep Will use again

    « Karratha stay »

    Great room nice and clean and one of the best beds I've slept in. The pillows were great and the room temp was very comfortable. Close to all the towns returants and shopping so walking around to the many places to eat was easy. The AC was working well and it was not noisy. Plenty of water presure for showering and the room was cleaned well.

    « Good rooms and close to shopping centre »

    Very welcoming staff and clean good sized rooms. Also very handy to shops and restaurants. Laundry amenities were clean and efficient and all in all a very pleasant overnight stay in Karratha. Would certainly stay there again.

    « expensive »

    $240 for a so called queen deluxe room. Air con was so noisy we couldn't keep it on, so had to used the fan instead. Pillows where poor, too flat. Mattress was ok. Free WiFi. Parking ok even though we had to unhitch our camper trailers. But room was clean and tidy and its centrally located.

    « Great stay »

    « Excellent business overnight stay »

    Helpful staff, clean room, enjoyable breakfast, and use of local restaurant. The internal internet worked very well, and quick. Use of the local restaurants was a great addition. A good location, close to the main area.

    « Accommodation »

    Good place to stay in KTA. Central to the town centre and the café area. Clean modern accommodation. Friendly, helpful staff. Good sized Air conditioned room. Ideal for business trips as the room has a good desk and Wi-fi

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    Stayed here on a work trip for two nights. Excellent location across the road from some great cafes and restaurants. Room was very clean and comfortable and wifi worked well. Nicely equipped kitchenette as mentioned in other reviews. Will definitely try and stay here again next time!

    5
    « Good central motel »

    Stayed here 2 nights during a holiday trip to the Pilbara. Ideal central location to visit the surrounding tourist sights in the towns of Dampier, Burrup, Point Sampson, Cossack, etc and Millstream/Chichester National Park. Friendly motel staff and room had everything we required and beds we very comfortable.

    5
    « Wonderful fully furnished accommodation in the middle of town! »

    I was given a one bedroom unit and the room was nice and tastefully furnished including the provision of a washing machine and dryer! This is a fantastic addition especially if you are travelling on work trip. They even provide washing detergent and both hand dish washing and machine washing liquid. There's airconditioning both in the living room and bedroom and the unit is one of a substantial size compared to some other places who only provide small undersized windows unit that had to work very hard just to keep the temperature comfortable. There's also a full size refrigerator, microwave and oven!

    « Cheerful, clean and cosy »

    Lovely staff and so clean and tidy. Well maintained and newly renovated rooms. Easy 50-200mtr walk to cafes, restaurants and shops. Pool is lovely and grounds easy to access. Made our over night stop here very relaxed. We will definitely stay here again when back this way traveling.

    « Great place for an overnight stay - very clean »

    Stayed here for one night. Female staff member smiling and happy and welcoming. Room was super nice and very clean perfect for an overnight stay. Shower good and nice pool and facilities all round. It looks recently renovated or well maintained. Good job Best Western

    « Not bad »

    Stayed here on business and found it ok. Parking a slight issue on busier nights. One of the girls on the check in desk had a real attitude problem but all other staff were incredible. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Rooms facing the building site are noisy from about 7 am onwards - be warned! They have a fantastic meal card which you can take to various restuarants in town and the meal is added to your bill - saves a lot of hassle on business trips! Pool and barbeque area was nice. WiFi not too bad. Very smart looking place. I'd go back.

    « Basic but adequate »

    We visited Karratha from Brisbane to catch up with friends that live there. We found it very pricey for something very basic. We understand its a mining town and everything is highly priced, but we found $865 for 4 nights a bit steep for something so basic. The room was clean & smelt fresh, staff were very friendly. I definately agree with the other reviews though that the air con was REALLY noisy & all the pillows were terrible. (We did try the ones in the wardrobe too and they were no better) Over all it was a good stay... not terrible but not fantastic... mediocre... just something very basic for quite a high price tag.

    « Good location for overnight stay. »

    We were three friends travelling south from Broome to Exmouth. Karratha is approximately the half way stop. We booked a family room, which provided three single beds in the one room, with a separate lounge/dining/kitchenette in the other room. Adequate and comfortable for an overnight stay and within walking distance to the supermarket. It is also located directly opposite good dining options for both dinner and breakfast. Before we departed Karratha, we took a short detour to Dampier, to see the statue of Red Dog, the 'Pilbara Wanderer'.

    « Just a room »

    Clean, average size room, comfortable bed, shower was had to maintain constant temp, very poor internet,reception staff friendly enough , but seemed not to want to give any advise & seemed new to the area

    4
    « Clean and Simple place to stay »

    The BW in Karratha was a good experience. The location is central, the room clean and functional. Opted for the $15 breakfast basket that was plenty of food and all ok. So if you need a reliable place to stay in Karratha then the BW is prefect.

    « Great location ?? »

    Just stayed with mates, in a queen studio, although quite small the room has everything you need and comfy bed and clean! The location is the best, right across the road from all the new pubs and cafes ! Would recommend for sure ?? Reception girls were friendly and helpful!

    « Would stay again »

    a little over priced but worth it, clean comfortable and walking distance to shops and restaurants, good place to stay and see the surrounding sights Dampier Cossack and Point Sampson and so on, no onsite meals

    « Best in the West »

    Yes this isn't the Ritz ,but it's a home from home . The staff are like mother hens making sure your looked after , there isn't a hotel restaurant but your spoiled for choice with in five minutes walk .

    « 3 day stop over »

    The staff were very helpful & the outdoor area of the complex was very nice. The en suite was adequate. If you want to sleep peacefully, do not stay here. Bed needed replacing & the air conditioner was extremely noisy, cutting in & out every few minutes. The room is extremely small

    « Overall Happy customer with some suggestions »

    Overall very friendly and helpful staff and I was quite happy with the room and facilities. Cleaning staff didn't close my door. I found it open when I returned in the evening. Thankfully nothing missing.

    5
    « Friendly and central »

    Clean, comfortable, cool, perfect range of amenities in room for travellers. Staff are always friendly and accomodating. Pool area is tropical and ideal for keeping kids occupied. Centrally located right in the CBD of Karratha's busy cafe/restaurant area. A favourite with my husbands business trip travels and wifi always easy to access and fast.

    « Nice and clean »

    Room smelt fresh and clean friendly staff and helpfull letting us stay longer as belay with car service. Liked extra linen pillows and blankets with price list if you wished to take. It was nice to walk into the room with aircon and fan going as the pilbra is very hot.

    « Best Western Karratha »

    I've been staying here for 12 years now, for business trips 2 weeks at a time, the staff are friendly and helpful and enjoy a good laugh, rooms are clean and spacious close to shops and restaurants Faxes, photocopying, scanning all not a problem, now there is free Wi-Fi too that works well

    « Thoroughly enjoyed our stay »

    The apartment was exactly what we wanted it was clean and comfortable. My husband left his glasses in the room and the staff are sending them to us. Thie hotel is central to the city and a walk to the shopping centre.

    « BW Karratha »

    Always a pleasure to stay here. Very clean, good WiFi, and close to everything. The checkin is very smooth and efficient and the staff are very helpful. The charge back system they have is definitely a good idea and works well.

    « Quilt improves »

    I stay this hotel at least one time ayear. Did you change the quilt in bed to thick one? It was very comfortable! There are many flies this season. Some flies come into the room. I am happy if getting some help about it.

    « Air Con »

    Air con very noisy cutting in and out all night, to hot not to have it on My room located at rear of building next to building site, very loud in mornings Parking in the area i used was very limited and full up most nights

    « Beat Expectations »

    After being on the road for a week (coming from Perth) I booked the Best Western as their one bedroom apartment has a washing machine and a dryer. Having a vehicle filled with dirty clothes, it was good to be able to quickly check in, park close to the room and then turn on the air conditioner and start to run the washing machine. Reception was happy to provide free packs of detergent and then later I found a stash in the room anyway. What was good about this Best Western, it is centrally located in Karratha, so we were able to load the washing machine and just walk pretty much across the street to a bar/restaurant and enjoy some $12.50 beers (most expensive Carlton Draught in Australia) and spend a few hours drinking and walking across the road and back moving clothes between the washing machine and the dryer. Once the last load was in the wash, I had about six beers in me and we were able to just walk next door (to the bar/restaurant) to a really good Indian place for curry and wine. Stumbling back to the Best Western after dinner to move the last load of clothes to the tumble dry, a comfortable bed and of course air conditioning was quite nice. The apartment was a mere $227 and worth every dollar. They gave me some vouchers for a free breakfast across the road but we didn't use them as I wanted to get up and out by 8:00 AM as we were going to drive 850km to Broome. I certainly recommend the Best Western Karratha!

    « Neat, Clean, Friendly »

    Neat tidy rooms with comfy beds. Suitable for long stay customers with weeks of work to do in Karratha. Pool and BBQ facilitys are nice for the evenings. Right in the middle of town with nice coffee shop across the road.

    « Great Stay Again »

    Fantastic place to stay with such great staff and service to go with !!! The poll is so refreshing after work in 46 degree weather and a nice cold one in your hand. Location is great and very quiet when time to sleep !!

    « Hectic Work Trip Stay made Comfortable... »

    Close to all amenities with walking distance to fine boutique restaurants that are linked to the Hotel. Very spacious clean rooms with all additional room amenities at hand. Great place to cook your BBQ meal with a few friends...

    « Family of 3 Adults - Darwin NT »

    Family of 3 adults on road trip back to Darwin, we got pretty late. Check in was great , everything was done extremely well. Room was great especially looked forward to a shower & the airconditioning. We used the cooking facilities in the room. Even had time to relax abit and watched some TV. Everything worked well. Beds where very comfortable. Had a great sleep. We cooked breakfast before we left.

    « Tidy and functional business hotel »

    Short review for a 1 night stay in Karratha for work trip. Rooms are old but clean. Bathroom is alright. Room has fans but lack of a/c in the hot summer would be unpleasant. Free wifi and friendly staff.

    3
    « Tidy »

    The staff were helpful and accommodating and the rooms were tidy. What I do find about Karratha is that accommodation and airfares are exorbitant and far below the quality expected for the price being paid. This particular facility does not offer restaurants or any additional services that really justify the expense though in fairness to the hotel, It price competitive against alternate hotels / motels in town. Quite frankly it is cheaper to fly and stay in Broome in the wet season and drive to Karratha and limit the amount of time that is required in town. Quite frankly, I am tired of being ripped off.

    5
    « Great value, quality rooms, in the center of town! »

    Glad we stayed here. Very comfortable, modern rooms. Great BBQ/ Pool area and very helpful staff. Its right in the middle of town and close to all amenities. You're experience in Karratha could be very different !!

    4
    « Central, Comfortable, Great Staff »

    Great staff and the central location make this pick number one in the town center. Overpriced in relation to general accommodation across the state however to be expected in the north west. Close to everything for the business traveler or escapees from the bush. We heard there are renovations in the upcoming plans which would improve the outdated rooms, however the team has done a great job with what there is to work with. Will return on our next 'town escape' trip. Although we had a road side room there was little to noise intruding on a Friday night. Free wifi was a great bonus and not the slow version most free wifi offers, this was full speed and easy to navigate. As hospitaity workers ourselves we were quite appreciative of the effort put into the outfit as a whole and commend the staff on the experience. No hesitation whatsoever in referring this place to others.

    « Nice enough hotel »

    Nice enough hotel. Very smart appearance (one of the better looking in Karratha, it has to be said!). The pool and pool area, although compact are nice and clean. The room was comfortable and quiet (until the building site next door kicked off - not a problem, as I was up early anyway!). The meal card is a great idea - go out and eat in one of the restaurants listed and the cost is added to your stay - saves the hassle of credit cards (great for business trips). One member of staff at the check in desk (didn't get her name unfortunately) was routinely unfriendly; unhelpful and unpleasant - the only black mark, hence 4/5.

  • 5
    « Great location »

    A perfect location to stay-many of Karratha's better restaurants are right on your doorstep and shopping only a short walk. They are a well appointed apartment,clean,spacious and quiet.I have stayed on numerous occasions and the staff have always been very helpful.

    « Lovely weekend »

    Good location close to shops , Nice green grass all around the complex we had two joining rooms that was convenant as a family. The pool was clean and refreshing as it was extremely hot on the weekend we stayed.

    « Good Stop over with full apartment facilities »

    My return to civilization after a week of roughing it was improved by my stay at these apartments. They have full laundry, bath, kitchen - basically everything you need. Felt a little expensive - but thats Karratha.

    « Central Location »

    I have stayed here on a number of occasions for business trips. The welcome is always warm and friendly. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious with kitchenette type facilities. It is located within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars and the shopping centre. The only negative is that the air conditioners are very loud so make for a restless sleep if you leave it running during the night.

    4
    « A Good Place to Stay »

    This hotel is good value for money in the area. The rooms are tidy and clean. I liked the fact that I was within walking distance to the shopping centre and a number of alternate places to eat. The hotel is also quiet if you prefer quieter accommodation.

    « Average »

    'Self contained' room was generously sized, although no stove. The rooms were certainly nothing special and for $180 a night they were old and could do with a smarten up. Staff were nice Pool area was a welcome view and looked nice although we didn't swim.

    5
    « Very central place to stay »

    We had two nights here in September 2015. Rooms were good. We had a street frontage room which I thought we would get street noise but we didn't. The only noise we got was from the room aircon but we needed it on as it was so hot. Walking distance to shopping centre that has major stores, Coles, Wollies, Kmart and Target and numerous specialty shops. Coffee shop just across the road that opens at 6am for breakfast. We had only a coffee there but the food looked great. Reception and staff at motel were pleasant and friendly and rooms were serviced well and we enjoyed our stay immensely and would stay here again when in Karratha .

    « Always Good! »

    I have been staying at these apartments over the last five trip to Karratha. Always clean, comfortable and well priced. The friendly reception and excellent free wifi are also a bonus. It is close to the main drag with all the local restaurants. Over the back is the main shopping centre. I use the Ibis for breakfast and some meals.

    4
    « Best in the North West »

    The Best Western KCA is a functional, neat, tidy place to stay while in Karratha, where the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Ideal for short to medium stay-overs and close to all the amenities in Karratha.

    5
    « What a great place to stay in Karratha »

    Whilst the internet didn't work, however to be fair, the reception did acknowledged on check in that they were having problems & even gave me a feedback form for the same. It is what it is, as they were in the middle of trying to sort it out.

    « Right in the heart of town »

    I've regularly stayed at the Best Western Karratha over the past 8 years for work purposes. By far the best value hotel in town. Clean, neat and tidy. Pool area is great. The lack of a restaurant has been dealt with by the ability to charge meals back from most of the best restaurants in town.
