This was to be my new special place in Alice until this stay. It is on a major intersection so expect some noise. It is old so expect some old things. It is however centrally located so the walk is minimal. The staff are very friendly. The biggest downfall for any motel room is an adjoining room with only a...

Hi Dasboot_871, I really appreciate you taking the time to review and give us some feedback on your stay. It's important for management to know when our standards aren't up to scratch in order to re-train staff where required. Your review will be discussed with all departments, Housekeeping, Front Office and Maintenance to ensure they are all aware of the...

Average motel, 2 stars maximum for standard rooms. We stayed there twice. the rooms to the right of the courtyard were bigger than other standard ones but very old and with extremely noisy AC. The smaller ones had renovated bathrooms but permanently sealed blind windows in the back of the room. AC is much quieter there. One can leave (for...

We stayed at the Elkira for one night only a couple of weeks back whilst travelling from Ayers Rock to Melbourne. Booked a bungalow room as the price was good and looked okay. I can't speak for the rest of the hotel but the bungalow room was pretty bad. They are located at the back of the hotel behind the...

Elkira is a classic motel in Alice. In the centre of town, walking distance to everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There were a couple of downsides to it, parking was a bit of a struggle, i didnt arrive too late, so i had to park in front of a sign that said "no parking in lane way". Otherwise...

We stayed one night in a bungalow room and thought we were back in the 1950s! The room was tiny and the bathroom very small too. OK it was cheap but the best thing about it was the shower, hot with pressure. It was clean and the staff were very helpful.

Dear Carol0743, We appreciate your feedback. Our six Budget / Bungalow rooms are quite small, we agree. They are marketed for the budget traveller / for an overnight stay. I'm sorry to hear that it didn't meet your standards and weren't up to your expectations. In our 56 room motel we do have five other room types which include a...

A retro-chic 1970s-style motel but fitted to a high standard, with friendly and helpful staff and a decent and well-priced restaurant. All amenities worked well and the high-speed wi-fi was free. Also free tea, coffee and biscuits. Nice pool and terrace area available. Not as flash as some of the more recent hotels in Alice Springs but it has them...

The Elkira Court Motel is a short walk away from the downtown area in Alice Springs. The swimming pool was large and looked inviting but unheated and chilly about 19 C in April.

Hi Sarah, It's positive to hear that our staff lived up to our expectations, and were friendly and curteous. We do have different room grades, some more recently renovated than others, if we have the opportunity in the future - we would love the opportunity to impress you with another room.
