The lovely receptionist made our holiday very special. When booking this accommodation I was torn between staying right in town or the ten minute walk to the east side where the motel is situated. It was so noisy in town at night I am very glad we chose to stay in a secure position out of town. There is an...

Thank you for your encouraging words and appreciation of our services. We try to ensure, we meet the expectations of all our guests, in a welcoming and friendly manner. We are a little way out from the town centre, as you state, but it is only a leisurely 10 - 15 minute walk to visit the centre of town. We...

We stayed one night here and booked 2 rooms. Place was well priced for Alice Springs. Rooms look a bit tired but were adequate for our needs. Bonus is having electric gates that are closed at nights for vehicle security. Is a little way from town but this can also be a plus. Will look at staying here again.

Hi Jason, we find that our security gates are a plus for a lot of our guests. We are pleased to hear that you would come to stay with us again. we are 15 minutes away from town if walking and 5 minutes if you drive. thank you for taking the time to write your review.

I stayed here in July and August of 2016. My adult daughter and I shared an enormous room. It was big enough for a family; there was a kitchen with toaster, micro wave, electric jug, a stove with oven and induction hot plates, and plenty of crockery and cutlery. As for furniture there were two beds and a sofa bed....

The rooms are spacious, good bathroom. Plenty of bench and desk space. Service was polite, friendly and helpful. Some problems with maintenance and cleaning but the staff consists of one young woman and her elderly mother. Unfortunately they have difficulty getting staff so considering that they are doing a great job despite the shortcomings. The neighbourhood is run down and...

The people are very friendly, the location is good, but the hotel needs serious maintenance work on its rooms. Cleaning is not very good, but internet is quite fast. We had room 12, which can take five people for the two of us. Int there is also a kitchenette. Shower is not very good, not much water.

Stayed here before and after an outback tour. Rooms were clean, and staff friendly. It's not downtown, but certainly within a 20 minute walk. It is a motel, more for people with cars, but not having one wasn't a problem. I would stay here again. There is a pool, that looked great, but unfortunately it was to cold outside for...

After 3 days of hiking in the Outback, Alice Motor Inn welcomed us with smiling staff, clean beds and hot showers. A bit outside the city centre, which was fine for a walk during the day, but recommend taxis at night. Great location for pick-up by any day or multi-day tours out of Alice.

Despite arriving a little earlier than the appropriate check in time, I was still greeted warmly, and advised that my room had just been made ready.
