Good place to stay for one night. Decent room with Attached bathroom, Mini Bar fridge and satellite cable TV. Pretty much every room is full of guest. Our room was near swimming pool on ground floor .

The rooms are pretty basic, so don't expect luxury. There is a good communal kitchen and lounge area, with a pool table. There is also a nice swimming pool out the back and it is close to the centre of town.

The Desert Rose Inn is in a good location for the centre of Alice Springs. On arrival you are given a map of the town centre, everything is within a 10-15 walk. The check in was easy and the room was good, with simple amenities. There is communal kitchen/lounge area which I did not use, so can't make comments.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst our car was getting fixed. The owners were great the dog was a little scary but I’m sure it’s a nice dog. Everyone we spoke to was lovely and helpful clean rooms and a good communal kitchen. Walking distance to town and everything you need. Definitely stay here again

We booked this one year in advance. Three stars should give better than this was. Rooms were very old and outdated! Very basic. Noisy AC. Horrible beds especially the mattresses (and if other travellers have noted bed bugs - I can imagine that this is possible - although we didn't discover any). Wouldn't recommend this place for anyone looking for creature comforts.
