We recently stayed in Whyalla for two nights at the Best Western Alexander Motel. We booked by phone and check in upon arrival was smooth. Our room was well appointed and very, very clean. The room had a large bed, lounge and table. The room had everything we needed for a comfortable stay from the usual tv and video, bar...

Stayed 1 night with friends in a Queen room but when we checked in were told we would have King Size beds. Nice Surprise! Beds were very comfy and rooms spacious with separate powder room adjacent to bathroom. On site restaurant was cosy and the food was great. Perfect when we arrived after 5pm tired and really didn't want to...

The motel was very quiet the Friday night we stayed - not many guests. The room was a reasonable size with the expected amenities. The bed was very comfortable and the shower also good - the 2 most important criteria for me. There was a small dining area that was convenient for eating our takeout dinner. Wifi was free and...

Stayed for one night for business. Rooms are comfortable and bathroom has been renovated. Overall a nice place to stay. Dinner was good but could do some work on the wine choices as very limited. Service was good.

Our story starts with a young couple whose tent had no poles. Seeking a place to lay their heads, they were scared to discover that most places nearby were shut. But one receptionist unhesitatingly referred us to the Alexander Hotel and we owe her a big thanks. This is how we discovered that an unmissable place on the friendly and...

Rooms are comfortable and the recently refurbished bathrooms are a nice bonus. Minibar is provided but not a great selection on offer. The restaurant is above-average for this type of motel as well which is handy since the motel is located away from the centre of town. Overall I would give 3.5 if TA allowed half marks...

Great host. Was extremely accomodating. Accomodation in a family room is all you need for a stop over. They have a pool and restaurant but can't comment on that. We only needed accomodation for a stop over and it was perfect for that

Motel dated but very clean and had everything needed. Stayed in a standard queen room which had an outdoor area ideal for a relaxed drink on arrival. Restaurant was booked out with function so ordered from our room. Great meal and prompt service. Staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
