This hotel is okay, but it's not cheap and it's not like you're in Cairns or a capital city. There were lots of disgusting cigarette butts around the grounds of the hotel which is appalling and it stinks

Being the Airport Motel was expecting it to be a lot closer to the airport then it was, then again it wasn't as close as to town as I would've preferred either, the room was good sized, the service was ok not the best was not very impressed though.

We booked this motel expecting it to be near the airport but it was 6-8 kilometres from airport. Additional amenities listed Airport shuttle, Local shuttle, Breakfast,Tour/ticket assistance non of these were available. The motel was quite away from the main part of Alice and a taxi was 10 dollars each way.The rooms were quite big but in need of TLC curtains were hanging from rails not enough hangers bathroom needed some work, all looking very tired.

Yes there might be one or two dugs about but they do live here, rooms are very big and down stairs the one we had you could park outside, aircon worked very well, you need a car to get into town to far to walk to the summer

Yes you do get one or one hundred bugs in your room but you are in Alice Springs not Sydney so all the reviews saying about the bugs if you don't like them don't come to Austrlia stay at home and as for the so called rat if have been to Alice ten times and I have never seen one. Like all other country's rats came in by boats and there's not a lot of them around Alice. Staying here again in January 2012
