Stayed here for a total of 5 nights either side of an Emu run trip and off the Ghan train. The motel is a little tired but everything works and they offer a free basic breakfast. Pleasant staff and luggage storage is no problem. Just an easy stroll to the town centre.

A little outside the centre of Alice Springs but well presented if basic. Large, well appointed rooms even if the decor was a little dated. The welcome at reception was very warm and friendly, the kitchen is a good idea and was useful for evening meals and basic breakfast. It offers basic, good, reasonably priced accommodation.

Alice Motor Inn is a good economy motel, with all the essentials, but is badly in need of minor maintenance. The staff are friendly and helpful, but the lack of many tradesman's services in Alice springs, means that little aspects of the rooms and their fittings keep on breaking down or are just plain missing. The proprietor advises that it... More

Room was spacious, well appointed & clean. A welcome place to return after a day's sight seeing. Reception staff friendly & helpful. Breakfast was buffet style & below par - could be excluded or improved & priced in

So happy to have visited Alice Springs and to coincidentally be here for the Henley on Todd. The hotel is and located a 15 minute walk from the centre. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the room clean and quiet. The breakfast was not good at all.

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
