In the old east side of Alice, within walking distance of the iconic Casa Nostra restaurant and the excellent East Side IGA. Friendly, warm service, quiet rooms very good value for money, laundry facilities and free continental breakfast.

The lovely receptionist made our holiday very special. When booking this accommodation I was torn between staying right in town or the ten minute walk to the east side where the motel is situated. It was so noisy in town at night I am very glad we chose to stay in a secure position out of town. There is an IGA just around the corner to save a trek into town anyway and a club for lunch and dinners almost opposite. The bus stop directly out front made it handy for tour pick-ups. What made the stay though was the lovely reception lady. We first spent 3 nights in room 9 a standard room for a couple and upon our return 6 nights later we were given a large family room for the final 5 nights. It was very unexpected and very appreciated. Had everything you could possibly need for a comfy stay. Breakfast was self serve in a communal kitchen which we really enjoyed. Very happy this was our accommodation choice for our stay.

Thank you for your encouraging words and appreciation of our services.
We try to ensure, we meet the expectations of all our guests, in a welcoming and friendly manner.
We are a little way out from the town centre, as you state, but it is only a leisurely 10 - 15 minute walk to visit the centre of town.
We have some lovely take-away and restaurants within a 5 minute walk of our Motel and hope you had a chance to sample some of their wonderful food whilst staying with us.
Happy travels for the future.

We stayed one night here and booked 2 rooms. Place was well priced for Alice Springs. Rooms look a bit tired but were adequate for our needs. Bonus is having electric gates that are closed at nights for vehicle security. Is a little way from town but this can also be a plus. Will look at staying here again.

I stayed here in July and August of 2016. My adult daughter and I shared an enormous room. It was big enough for a family; there was a kitchen with toaster, micro wave, electric jug, a stove with oven and induction hot plates, and plenty of crockery and cutlery. As for furniture there were two beds and a sofa bed. The toilet and bath room were also roomy.
This motel has free wifi - important because we were organising activities. There is a large communal breakfast room with free bread, butter, jams, milk, breakfast cereals and beverages. The property has pay-to-use washers and driers. Laundry soap and pegs are free. The management/staff are pleasant and helpful.
It's a five minute walk to the town centre, and almost just across the road is the Eastside Club. It serves excellent lunches and dinners at comfortable prices.
This place is so good and economically priced that I'd never consider looking anywhere else.
