The worst place I have ever stayed. For one thing, one of the beds was full of dead beetles. We lifted off the top cover and there where over a dozen dead beetles there. Yes, it is Australua and we have lots of bugs but a hotel should ensure they are not in the bed. I always take my shoes... More

This is a great place to stay when you find yourself in Alice Springs. The facilities are first class. nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Karen and Steve looked after us so well that I have no hesitation recommending The Alice Springs Airport Motel to anyone considering a visit to the red centre.

Steven and Karen are great hosts and go over and beyond to ensure that your stay is memorable for the right reasons. The accommodation facilities are very comfortable with modern quiet air conditioners, tv and reliable free wireless internet connectivity. The security is a big bonus especially for tradies with utes full of expensive tools and equipment. If you are... More

Our room was badly in need of a refit. The bathrooms facilities were stained through years of poor cleaning, and worst of all when we sat down to have some lunch, we heard scratching and squeaking in the walls. We did not say. The refund was prompt and without question, at least that was one positive. We stayed down the... More

False & Misleading information. Only one rat has been sighted in Alice Springs since 1935. They are extinct here. Secondly, our walls are pre-fabricated solid concrete walls, there is no space between the walls for any animal to enter. As for the cleaning of the bathroom, the only stain in the bathroom is a calcium stain from the water which... More

“The motel is 2.5kms from the cbd and about a half hour walk so a car is recommended, or a taxi ride. The location should not detract from the level of hospitality experienced and the quality of our stay. Recommend a premium room on ground floor.”
