“If nowhere else available, then maybe.”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

What to say, half interested staff on check in, room old and in need of a good clean. Restaurant was shut due to "staff holidays". I was informed by business contacts in Albany that the restaurant is lucky to be open. Checked into another hotel for the same price down the road and was a vast improvement over this place.

Better off trying one of the other hotels if your on a budget liek the Amity or Ace.

Given that this motel is cheap I can't criticise it simply because it's not a 4star! Definite 3 star. The standard rooms are small and although there is bedding for three, it would be very crowded unless the third person is a small child. Obviously built in the 60s and any improvements since then have been confined to covering the swimming pool, rather than redoing the rooms. It's on the highway, but most of the rooms and apartments are well enough away for noise not to be a problem
It has a restaurant (a simple continental breakfast is included in the tariff), but it wasn't open the night we were there. Chef was sick, they told us. Wifi is available for a fee

Stay away from this dump! It's disgusting.
Dirty, old and uncomfortable.
The two owners are rude and behave in a very strange manner.


Horrible place. Looks like something out of a horror movie!

Purchased from wotif due to price, but should have paid a little extra to stay elsewhere. Room was smelly, had strong damp, musty smell. Not overly clean with dead cockroach in bathroom. Returned from dinner at about 8pm to make coffee, to find an open milk container in fridge and reception closed and unable to replace.

Purchased room of wotif. Room described as newly refurbished this means a new Dick Smith tv not the rest of the very dated decor . Hardest bed ever slept on complete with pillows which should have been dumped years ago. Even though the room had a Qeen and a single bed we were still stung a $18 extra to set up our own travel cot for ourselves and two year old. This motel pretty much sums up our albany tourist experience Overrated tourist trap

This motel is one of the cheapest in Albany. If you aren't bothered by the decor of the room or the age of the TV then this could be for you! We only paid $85 per night, so I'm not going to complain to much.

At the end of the day, it's cheap for a reason. It's nowhere near the best, but isn't the worst either. The bed was clean and there is a heated swimming pool available for use.

Next time we will be spending more and staying elsewhere, but it is fairly well situated and we had no real complaints due to the price.
