“Thanks for looking after us so well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

This is a great place to stay when you find yourself in Alice Springs. The facilities are first class. nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Karen and Steve looked after us so well that I have no hesitation recommending The Alice Springs Airport Motel to anyone considering a visit to the red centre.

Stayed October 2011, traveled on business

As a trainer I travel a lot leaving my wife and 4 children back home, it can often be lonely so it is important to stay in a motel which is comfortable and has the little things available to you. I made 2 wonderful new friendships with Steve & Karen who are the full time managers, their hospitality, humor, and friendship made a long work trip a real pleasure.

Their staff (especially you Toni) were excellent and helpful, Toni is a real character and worth the price of entry alone. Hey Steve, remember to install Bazs' water feature too mate, although he did miss the sprinkler show LOL!

I was impressed with the strength of the relationships Steve & Karen have developed with their community and the respect they have earned. I would definitely stay at the Alice Springs Airport Motel on my next trip.

Thank you Steve & Karen for everything and you know how to find me when you are on the East Coast.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but I prefer the ground floor rooms 3 back from the front of the property, cool...

I didnt know what to expect when my company sent me for a month to Alice Springs, but it was far better than I expected. Karen and Steve at the Airport Motel are a couple of the nicest, friendliest and most accomdating people you could meet. They asssited me with everything from getting about town to Tours to the famous Ayres Rock. Nothing was to much, and I never felt for a second that anything I asked was a burden. Housekeeping was superb, the rooms are kept very clean and are comfortable. The rooms have everything you would need, excellent airconditioning and a great pool, is a bonus on the hotter afternoons.
I can highly recommend this Motel if not only for the amenities but the great staff. Thankyou Karen and Steve for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Down Stairs rooms near the gardens and water Features are lovely, peaceful and relaxing.

Steven and Karen are great hosts and go over and beyond to ensure that your stay is memorable for the right reasons.
The accommodation facilities are very comfortable with modern quiet air conditioners, tv and reliable free wireless internet connectivity. The security is a big bonus especially for tradies with utes full of expensive tools and equipment.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Alice Springs, give the Airport Motel a go!

We were really amazed by the big spacious bedroom. The room is clean with TV and fridge. As our Tiger Airway was cancelled, we nearly got stuck in Alice Spring. But the staff there were so helpful to provide us some options of travelling back to Melbourne and even lend us the personal laptop and etc!! Very touch by their helpful gesture!! Thank you.

Our room was badly in need of a refit. The bathrooms facilities were stained through years of poor cleaning, and worst of all when we sat down to have some lunch, we heard scratching and squeaking in the walls.

We did not say. The refund was prompt and without question, at least that was one positive. We stayed down the road.

False & Misleading information. Only one rat has been sighted in Alice Springs since 1935. They are extinct here. Secondly, our walls are pre-fabricated solid concrete walls, there is no space between the walls for any animal to enter. As for the cleaning of the bathroom, the only stain in the bathroom is a calcium stain from the water which is slowly being erradicated by the replacement of all bathroom sinks. The refund was promptly given as nothing was going to satisfy this guest.
