Rooms are tidy and staff are very friendly. The wall-mounted heater was only working intermittently so they gave us a portable heater for the second night as it was very cold. The only thing that we were "surprised" of was the "complimentary breakfast". I don't know what we were expecting, but it was a kitchenette area with two tables and... More

We stayed for 5 nights in a room with a kitchenette and it was in the old section. Should have stayed in newer room. Very old and dirty. Bathroom had not ever had any update. Windows and curtains were filthy throughout. Microwave and fridge had not been wiped out and there was pasta on the kitchen floor. Servicing of the... More

Nice clean rooms. Good heating (we we there in August and it was freezing outside). The breakfast was nice, good selection of toasts and cereals. Reception was very helpful and did her best to make sure we were happy. We stayed there twice the first time in the second floor and then in the first. The rooms upstairs have better... More

G'day Yaep, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on Tripadvisor, it is very much appreciated. It has been particularly cold this winter so having good heating is a must. Enjoy the rest of your travels. Hera Manager info@alicemotorinn.com.au More

Nice motel, only ten minutes very easy walk from the town centre. Simple but spacious (older style) and very clean superior rooms (well worth the little extra). Breakfast included (toast, jams, cereal, and tea/coffee). And the lovely Hera at reception, for whom nothing is too much trouble (and all done with a smile and a laugh). All in all, great... More

We really enjoyed staying in this motel for a week in July. The room was specious & well appointed, there was a free breakfast room, gates & cameras provided security at night, the energetic manager couldn't do enough to ensure we were all happy and the price for the week was excellent as well. We will definitely use it again!

We spent two nights here in a double room. The room was comfortable and reasonable. The inn caters for a range of travellers so there is a communal kitchen which was useful to self cater. The breakfast while limited was OK. For the price no complaints.

We stayed twice during a recent holiday in central Australia. The rooms are simple, older style motel rooms but well equipped. The customer service here is excellent and brought us back a second time. Also the low tarrif includes use of the kitchen and simple breakfast, plus free wifi. Overall a very good experience. Thanks

This accommodation is comfortable and feels like a home away from home. Great services provided by the team at AMI especially, Penny, who swapped our day trip (West Mac) with the hot air balloon trip. If not, we would have to give hot air ballooning a miss .... Greatly appreciate the extra mile that AMI staff had provided to us... More

I stayed here on the way back from a family trip to Uluru. Our group took two rooms, and found them to be very comfortable and spacious and at a very reasonable price. As it was winter, the only complaint we would have was that there was not any heating in the rooms (and despite what people may think about... More
