I had to go to Albany on business with am associate and stay the night, I chose the motel on advice from a friend who runs the local Southwest Regional tourism office.
It is exactly opposite the Famous tourist site "Dog Rock" which for those who don,t know, is a large natural lump of rock siting along in the centre of town and looks like a Labrador Dog'shead head.
It was miserable, cold wet, windy night, and it was pleasant to be greeted by typical country town hospitality.
The there are about 4 double storey buildings so plenty of rooms, the place has obviously been renovated and the work is of high standard and the room are well appointed, large, clean and comfortable. The pillows could be a bit softer and the shower rose although large has a low pressure system which doesn't make for a luscious hot shower on a cold winter' s night.
Apart from that it is a very nice place for either the business traveller or tourist, and if you haven't read my report on the motels's restaurant "Lime 303" then please do so, it is a hidden gem. Breakfast was nice, easy buffet style continental, or your choice of hot cooks to order.
