We stayed here for a week and have no complains. Communication via email prior to the trip was excellent, with a reply received within a few minutes every time.
The room was basic but had everything we needed, including reverse cycle aircon, TV, free wifi, bar fridge and plenty of powerpoints throughout the room. The latter is a pet peeve of mine - even in expensive hotels you're not guaranteed to have enough power points for all the gadgets people travel with these days. Our room had doubles on pretty much every wall which was great.
Parking was easy and the motel is located only a very short distance from downtown Albany, literally a couple of minutes by car. Petrol stations and food outlets/supermarkets nearby.
Service was friendly and helpful. My only negative would be that the wifi gets congested at peak hours (6 to 11pm) as everyone hops on to use it. It's ok to browse the net, but if you have a rainy day and there's nothing on TV and you wanna watch Netflix, it buffers a lot. But it's free so I can't really complain and it certainly did not impact our enjoyment of the stay. It's actually good to see free wifi offered, as most "big" hotels still charge for it, which is ridiculous in this day and age.
For the price, this is a great motel and we'd be back without hesitation. If you can do with the basics and don't need luxury pampering, this ticks all the boxes. We would take a king bed next time though if they have one.
