This hotel is okay, but it's not cheap and it's not like you're in Cairns or a capital city. There were lots of disgusting cigarette butts around the grounds of the hotel which is appalling and it stinks

Being the Airport Motel was expecting it to be a lot closer to the airport then it was, then again it wasn't as close as to town as I would've preferred either, the room was good sized, the service was ok not the best was not very impressed though.

Additional amenities listed Airport shuttle, Local shuttle, Breakfast,Tour/ticket assistance non of these were available. The motel was quite away from the main part of Alice and a taxi was 10 dollars each way.The rooms were quite big but in need of TLC... More

Yes there might be one or two dugs about but they do live here, rooms are very big and down stairs the one we had you could park outside, aircon worked very well, you need a car to get into town to far to walk to the summer

The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, Very comfortable. We suggest the very short drive to the Lassiters Casino for breakfast (say you are local) the cost is $14 buffet. Also very very handy to the hotel next door. There is security for vehicles at night and BBQ facilities

It was good value but shower area wasn't partitioned in the toilet and the whole bathroom/toilet gets wet everytime you shower. It looked clean but there was a small cockroach in the toilet. It's only 10min drive to the airport so you don'this have to wake too early if you have an early flight.

We read the earlier poor reviews about this motel and were a little concerned about our 4 night stay here from 21st June 2012. However on arrival we found that there were new managers Kathy & John Read, who could not have been better hosts. We booked a premium room (which we'd recommend for lots of room) and found out...

I was sent by my company to a one week conference in Alice, I was able to stay at any hotel I wanted and I couldn't wait to get back to this cosy, sweet, clean and lovely motel.

“The motel is 2.5kms from the cbd and about a half hour walk so a car is recommended, or a taxi ride. The location should not detract from the level of hospitality experienced and the quality of our stay. Recommend a premium room on ground floor.”
