As a backpacker, this really was the choice place to stay before and after your trip to Uluru. The rooms were basic, two bunks and a shared, attached bathroom. Clean but not overly well-maintained. The restaurant was pleasant, and cheap -- which was oh so important for us backpackers. The pool area was welcoming considering where we were and the... More

Hi Brent, Am a little confused by your comments, i think that you may have us mixed up another establishment. Our rooms all have en-suites and we do not have a restaurant. More

This motel suited our group of 7 perfectly. We were waiting to catch the Ghan the next day and it was a good place to see parts of Alice Springs. We were able to walk to the club for dinner that night. Staff were helpful and laundry facilities were available

A 1960's style motor inn that does need a facelift. However very clean and close to town and a good place for a night stop over while travelling. Staff friendly and helpful and property provides a security car park at night which is great. Self serve breakfast room is great however some guests put the 'self serve' more than you... More

The Alice Motor Inn is a friendly, comfortable place to stay in Alice. It is an easy 15-20minutes to town. Good value for money with a self-help breakfast included in the price. Kitchen and barbecue facilities are also available to guests free of charge.

We were welcomed by the manageress, in a fun and friendly way. shown to our rooms which were comfortable, clean and have all the amenities we required. Loved the fact of the secured gates of a night. Our hostess was a wealth of knowledge about the best tours, attractions, road conditions etc. We most certainly will be going back.

The motel is dated and a little tired but you cannot deny the value. It is secure (the car park is locked at night) and a room with breakfast at the price is hard to beat. It is a little out of town and the welcome is very friendly. If you are looking for a comfortable night at a very... More

This hotel lived up to everything that it promised - comfortable clean rooms, WIFI, breakfast (basic - cereal, lost, tea/coffee). Friendly and helpful owners. Secure. Close to everything. We stayed here as part of a package with Emu Tours - fantastic organisation.

This hotel promised and provided all the things we were looking for: kitchenette, free internet (that worked), BBQ, swimming pool, laundry, secure parking, and a light breakfast (toast and cereal). The owner was friendly and helpful -- "no worries" was his favourite phrase. He steered us to Emu tours, which was a great choice. We were very happy with the... More

Friendly, helpful owners. We had an early morning start for a trip and they have the self serve breakfast room set up to cater. Clean rooms. Short walk into the center of town. Really good value accommodation.
