“Reasonable location, but that would be all.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a wedding.

While the Motel was in a good location if you wanted to attend the stadium, approx 900 mtr away or spend some time shopping at the Albany shopping center, that I am affraid, is the only good thing you could say about the complex.

The rooms are very dated, the whole complex could do with a complete revamp. The breakfast cafe on site, while the breakfast was ok, the room was very untidy and cluttered.

Room service was almost non-exisistant, and the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Spider webs in the bathroom, that had been there for some time, mould on the bathroom walls, body hair in the shower, (head & the other sort!!).

We had a wheelchair access room. While access to and in the room was reasonable, the bathroom was not all that manoevrable.

Bed was extremley uncomfortable, but there was very little road noise at night. You would not want to have a raised voice conversation with your partner, the walls were paper thin and you could hear what was going on in the next room.

Would we go back? No, I doubt it very much.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012 via mobile

If you simply need a place to sleep for a night because you have business in Albany this is the place for you. If you need more than one night or traveling on holiday look elsewhere! Tired surrounds, bad reception on the tv, unreliable wifi, road noise one side and loud patrons at the Chinese restaurant on the other characterise this motel. I had a studio unit on the ground floor where thankfully the road was hard to her over the sound of the fridge! When this kept me awake I noticed the tissue thin curtains barely kept the light out. What's good? The operator seems a nice chap, the mini bar is reasonable and all you need is in walking distance. Doubt I'll be back.
