The bed sheets didn't get changed before we arrived (there was hair, weird stains on them and it was obvious they just had been straightened out before the comforter was put back on) but as soon as we asked, the staff at the reception brought us new ones. Rooms were clean, furniture looked like straight out of the 50's. Staff was friendly and helpful, showed us on the map how to get into town and everything we needed (supermarket, etc). Kitchen was as clean as you can expect from a communal kitchen. We left super early due to our Uluru tour and breakfast was already available in the kitchen, which was nice. Wifi was good. There is a nice pool in which we cooled off from the heat.

This rather small motor inn, located on the outskirts of town, has a pool and BBQ equipment. There is a restaurant and a grocery store within a 10 minute walk of the property. Room was dated but comfortable with plenty of amenities for a short overnight stay. Price was reasonable and very quiet at night. The receptionist was very helpful. Breakfast is self-service in the breakfast room located across from Reception. Bus is available hourly. There is a bus stop in front of motel; bus schedule is posted at reception desk.

This motor inn is a little bit (15 mins) far to walk from downtown in Summer. It is in desert region; temperature can get up to 36 degree. The inn is kind of old. The inn keepers are friendly and helpful. The inn even provides a community kitchen for you to cook meals. It is not a bad place, just a bit too far away.

from business for me.

Thank you for your review of our property.
we are approximately a 15 minute walk from town, with good walkways over flat ground, which makes it suitable for people of all ages.
our guests are appreciative of our kitchen area, where you can cook as well.
safe travels.

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.

Room Tip: Rooms at the top level get less noise from arriving or departing guests

Thank you for your time in commenting on our property.
We try very hard to make all our guests as comfortable as possible during their stays with us.
We apologise for the one cobweb we found in Room 17. it must of been overlooked, and yes we try very hard to keep our rooms free of "Creepy Crawlies".
The community kitchen is a great meeting place for guests to catch up and exchange some friendly chit chat, travel advice etc, while enjoying our free continental breakfast.

Needed a double bed in Alice, this was reasonably priced. Very friendly welcome, large older style room, comfy double bed. Found the front gate at night confusing. Breakfast was very basic - cornflakes, toast & coffee. Wifi only works in kitchen. Quiet, not noisy, a little out of town & very secure. Would go again

Room Tip: Down stairs is easier
