Property conditions & facilities




6/10 Good

Great Location, But Not Much More to Offer
When I arrived at my room, I noticed there were 2 beds, instead of just 1 King bed (I’d reserved a “King” Room: 1 King Bed, Non-smoking). I immediately called the front desk, which is when I was told “The rooms with a King bed are being renovated, so we gave you a “Superior” Room, with a “Queen” bed and a single bed.” They couldn’t tell me this beforehand? The gentleman at the front desk never offered me any $ back for the downgraded room I was placed in. Also, from the time I immediately turned on the air conditioner to the time I left my room the next morning, it emanated a cigarette smoke / moldy / mildew-type scent. My other complaints are identical to those many left in the comments, here, regarding the lack of cleanliness and customer service (the latter of which, for me, was NOT all bad, as the gentleman I spoke with at the front desk the next day was helpful). The bed and pillows were sufficient (I slept well). The other hotels that were available at the time I booked a couple of months ago were large hotel chains, but they were too far away (for my liking) from the downtown-area. I chose this place simply for its downtown location. That’s the best thing this place has going for it. I certainly didn’t “expect the world” from this place, but there are so-called minimum standards that simply weren’t met. Given same, the rate I paid should’ve been cheaper. Their sign says “An Oasis in the heart of Alice Springs.” Really? I’m glad my stay was for only 1 night.

Would stay again!
Great night. Extremely central location. If you're not comfortable with noise - through the night - I probably wouldn't recommend it, as the evenings in this part of Alice are 'interesting' at the moment. I however have no issue with some noise coming from a busy city anyway. The bed was extremely comfortable, in fact, probably one of the more comfortable beds I've used in a long time. The staff were friendly and happy to help. I would most definitely stay there again, it's nicer than basic, and reasonably priced - I've stayed in a lot worse!

4/10 Fair

I found it unsafe The lock on the door was loose and then one morning 2 aborigine girls from the town walked by and stuck their heads in to our room to ask for money I told reception they need to have security checks around the motel as it is centre of town. They seemed to ignore what I said. The bathroom had note to to say if we wanted towels changed to leave them on bathroom floor and they would do that but the room was never serviced Plus our trash bins were left overflowing. The room was definitely worn and outside door had rubber hanging off it.The hairdryer had been pulled off the bathroom wall.

Clean & convenient but security a bit of an issue
Centrally located and close to food/retail. My room was really clean with none of the complaints by previous guests. The staff are very friendly too, possibly the highlight of this hotel. The downside, and there is one, is security. The rooms have doors with locks but the glass doors leading from the rooms to the verandahs are really insecure. Plus this is a long verandah connecting all the rooms with free access from outdoors (I did a day trip with Emu Run and left my luggage with reception for safe-keeping). Another downside is that you can hear drunk/high people fighting/howling/screaming outside at night, all night. This isn't the hotel's fault but is purely from it location in town in Alice.
