Friendly staff and good location. They need to buy a decent vacuum as the one they have is rubbish. After complaining about the state of the room they did try to clean it to a decent standard.................

We arrived late after our flight and they left a note on the door directing us to our lit room and key. The 1 bedroom suite was very clean, comfortable and in a good location, fairly close to downtown and easy to get to from the airport. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the Alcala on two different occasions, first in a one-bed unit and second in a studio. I would mark the one-bed excellent and the studio average; surprisingly they are priced the same. Both are very clean and have similar amenities (fast, free Internet, flat-screen TV, comfy bed) except for the unit size and the (studio's) bathroom sink... More

This Motel was "ok" - good for one night close to Airport but noisy next to main road. Bed reasonably comfortable but basic. Good value for money, would certainly recommend for a short stay. Rooms clean and good facilities.

This was a really nice, well presented, clean, warm, roomy unit - with friendly staff. Good location and reasonably quiet street. I arrived at the wrong motel down the same street and was very disapointed with it - but not Alcala - it was great.

The room was a good size and had everything we needed, including a good size bathroom and lounge area. The rooms were clean and was nice and quiet. Good location as well, it was... More

We found the owners of this motel confrontational and unreasonable. It spoiled what could have been a lovely stay for us. For this reason i would not stay here or again, nor recommend it to friends. The manuals in the rooms are out of date - stating that you must pay $10 for internet when it is in fact free.... More

Would stay again. Very clean, well appointed and very good value. There are a couple of restaurants 1 short block north (Thai and Indian). Supermarket, butcher, newsagent there as well. Easy parking on site. Very friendly and helpful. I had a small problem that I needed some help with, and Kathy went above and beyond to help me. Thank you!... More
