Fantastic triple room, nicely set out for 3 people to share. Bed each, plus fridge and kettle with tea making facilities provided, clean and well looked after bathroom. Easy to find from the airport by use of shuttle bus service. Nice patio area outside of rooms to relax, swimming pool water looked a bit messy but otherwise we loved our... More

After staying at a nearby hostel , the Desert Rose was like the Hilton. I only wish I would have stayed here first . My clean room had a shower , a ridiculously comfy bed ( very welcome after 3 blustery nights in a swag in the Outback) , fridge , functioning TV , free tea and coffee + kettle,... More

Basic motel room. Fairly old but clean. Could do with a bit of a facelift but served our requirements. Within walking distance into cbd. We arrived at 5pm and left following morning at 6:00am. Staff were friendly and willing to answer questions.

The hotel itself is a bit worn down but the room was clean, the bed comfortable, the ensue bathroom extremely clean and the shower hot and powerful- everything I needed after camping for three days at Yulara.

A small quiet hotel close to the centre of town. Small kitchen area adjacent to a TV room, great for preparing meals and relaxing. Owner/manager was very welcoming and our 3 day stay was excellent. I am planning to return later in the year and will stay again.

The Desert Rose Inn was a great choice for me and my family to stay. It was a short walk from the inn to the local shopping centers (with markets, tourist shops, restaurants, and supermarkets). It was also really close to Anzac Hill, which is an easy climb for a great view of the city and sunrise. The owner of... More

We stayed here before one night before our Uluru tour and again one night on our way back. The motel isn't fancy or new but it served our purpose and we didn't feel unsafe at all. We were able to leave our luggage in storage while away on our tour which we appreciated. Our room was handy to the pool... More

This was a gret place to stay in Alice Springs. Near the shops, town centre and railway station. Our room was at the back, ensuite and air conditioned, next to the car park and a nice swimming pool. There is a good well appointed kitchen and large lounge, washing machines (the usual 4 dollars) and rotary clothes lines where your... More

This place was probably our least favorite, on our month-long trip to Australia. We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor in the main building with the lobby. This place is part motel, part long-term cheap housing. As such, some residents smoke and leave their tv set on all night long. Our room was pretty outdated, and the mattresses... More
