It wasn't cheap but it should have been. There was little accommodation available in Alice Springs but we did find somewhere else for our next night. It would be somewhere to stay if you couldn't find anything else.

Alice springs motor inn obviously doesn’t think Covid exists let alone believe in hygiene when they think rooms like this are acceptable.... and still charge $$ for the experience! See pics, I won’t tell you what marks I found when I pulled the blankets back 🤮 someone had a good time before us! FYI had to use my own bedding/pillows after complaining and receiving new dirty bedding to change the sheets myself... no lights in the dirty bathroom, dirty towels and a broken fridge. Pics don’t do it justice (marks aren’t shadows). Nowhere else to stay. I’ve stayed in some questionable places, but they were at least clean. Renovations occurring in rooms either side, potential asbestos that hasn’t been dealt with and now friable throughout the property. My review - dirtier than my swag after a wet Deni.

Where do i start. We are in room 17 and i cannot sleep. Room 17 is a refugee from 1950, which in itself is quite endearing, but when I say refugee, i mean it is almost in original condition. Have you not heard of maintenance and carpet cleaning here? We walked into a room that bears no resemblance to any photos i can see. Carpet is mostly heavily stained and looks like it has not been cleaned - ever. I cannot bear to walk on it with bare feet. As for the rest, and i have uploaded photos, curtain rail is broken, security lock on door is broken. 2 light fittings are broken. 1 PowerPoint, which just happened to have the tv plugged into it had no power to it. Checked it by plugging the jug in. The auto door closer is broken, the paint is peeling off the ceiling in the shower, the complimentary wi fi drops in and out of its own accord and only really works when you are near the window. I opened the drawers to check (as you do) and the front panel fell off one of the drawers, not to mention a very sticky handle on one of them. One of the hinges on the storage cupboard has come off and the light fittings have been replaced on the bed head, leaving the screw holes from the previous fittings in all their glory. Not to mention the cracked PowerPoint in the bathroom and cracked and dirty hair dryer. You know how once you start looking for faults, it becomes very easy? Well, the paint is peeling off the door, which looks like it has been forced open and repaired. I read another review where someone said they were burgaled, so i think i will try and stay awake until morning. I have jammed a chair against the door in the vain hope that it will stop an intruder and finally, a smoke alarm has been replaced, but they left the shell of the old one on the ceiling - tacky. Now, my wife and i are seasoned travelers and have stayed in some less than desirable places such as the huts on the Kepler track in nz, refugios in sth america, a cave in Turkey to name a few. We have camped in a 2 person tent on the main range in Kosciuszko nat park, spent 3 nights in the tent at Yulara (Uluru) and i have done many multi day walks with my trusty tent, but tonight takes the cake as the most disgusting place we have ever stayed - did i mention that as this is the Finke weekend, all accommodation has been booked and that my wife refused to sleep in the bed, so is in her sleeping bag? It will be interesting when we check out in the morning and i invite them to have a look at the room, because i am sure the owners/ managers have not seen it since about 1960.

I booked in advance the night before, going by previous reviews, photos and the price. I arrived at dusk. My attached photo was taken the following morning. It looked even worse when I arrived, with the addition of people sitting in the gutter and on the footpath. Given the difference between reality and the published photos, my natural assumption was that I'd been scammed. by I've haven't been given any reason since to change that opinion. When I booked it clearly said non-refundable. Now I understand why. My first (and hopefully last) bad decision on Trip Advisor. What I saw that evening made me decide to blow the money I'd paid and book in at another motel. Having booked in, I checked my email and found one from the Alice Motor Inn giving me the gate details and room number. A bit late by then. No idea why they didn't ring to give me the details, 'cos they had my number. The reality is that it may be a really good motel. I don't know and I never will, 'cos after this experience, there's no way known I'd book in there again. My recommendation is not to book in advance. Have a look first, then make your decision.
