Enjoy & Remember Great Times with us

      On our way back home from Brisbane, and we required one nights accommodation. Alara Motor Inn was very affordable at $84.00 for the night. The room was quiet, clean and spacious for two. The bed was extremely comfortable, the amenities were clean. Staff Member Heidi was friendly and approachable. I would definitely stay again.
