Many towns have one or motels handy to the major road and/or air transport. This is one of Albany's. It's on the main highway, which is also the airport road, and it does a good job as a convenient stopover. If you want a resort, a view, a beach, a wilderness: not here.
But if your expectation is a convenient, clean overnight stop at a very reasonable price, this will certainly do. The room was very clean, the facilities well up to the job, the staff friendly and helpful. Albany CBD and commercial areas are a few minutes away. Food options are fine; again, provided you remember this is about traveller convenience. Fine dining it ain't, very serviceable food it is. The setup looks better, and the buildings in better condition, than some of the other Albany Highway stopover motels. It has had a recent makeover and presents perfectly OK. I was personally not bothered by the road noise, about six units back from Albany Highway. Even the big rigs don't run through here in the dead of night.
No real complaints from me, but I would have liked chilled water at breakfast as an alternative to juice, and I'm sure trying a bit harder with the coffee wouldn't break the budget. I would personally trade any big-screen TV for an iPod dock, but I realise I'm in a small minority on that.
Overall: it it's what you're after, it's fine. If not, it won't make you happy.
