Alice Motor Inn is located a bit more off track than other accommodations in Alice but it is rather quiet at night and it only takes 15min by foot to reach the city center and other attractions.
The whole property is styled like an American Motel with cars spaces in front of the rooms.
Located in the middle of the big building is the tinny reception where I was greeted by some very friendly staff that could give a non local some appreciated advice on snake encounters.
A small and clean looking pool is located right across the reception if you ever do want to cool down a bit.
Starting in the very early morning you can enjoy some basic breakfast in the community kitchen. They offer toast as well as some cereals. You will also find a microwave in here.
It is a pity that some guests do not seem to clean up after themselves as requested though and leave the dishes in the sink.
I was staying in a double bed room equipped with a small kitchen area (water boiler, mini fridge and some coffee & tea to enjoy) and an ensuite bathroom with bathtub/shower.
The place did not seem to be the cleanest with some spider webs on the walls and at the ceiling but I would have imagined worse for this price range. According to the staff the room has just been through some pest control and I did not see any creepy crawlies during my two night stay.
A good way to travel from and between the airport is with the shuttle you can book right after landing. They will make a stop right in front of the gates and bring you back to the airport with some time to spare for your flight back.
If you prefer to get a taxi, you will also find a free taxi phone in the community kitchen with the transport prices at display.
