We stayed on short notice in family/ handicapped room after reading reviews here. It was great value. We enjoyed the extra space in bathroom with handheld shower, practical for our 2 kids. Decor old fashioned with charm but new very comfy beds and flat TV with build in DVD player. Free DVD hire. Location is perfect. Across the road is... More

Beautiful little town and Lake Albert Motel is an excellent place to stay. Well run and very friendly service with comfortable rooms. Will definitely stay again. Lots to see and do in and around Lake Albert and the Coorong.

We stayed here for one night in a standard room and couldn't speak highly enough of the warm welcome we received and the nice, spacious room...nothing too boutiquee, just a good, clean motel room with everything we needed. The new owners were very friendly and helpful with their knowledge of the area and we wish them all the best in... More

Relief staff on arrival very friendly and owner the following morning too. I'm happy to pay $99 for two people if there's an obvious attempt to update - say for example, from analogue tv / set-top box to digital tv. I didn't need the tv nor the 1970s-looking microwave but would have liked to have a working exhaust fan in... More

Travelilng with a group of Harley riders. Hotel was comfortable and clean. Decor may not be the latest but very functional and no detriment to our stay. Lady owner did everything, reception, rooms etc and was very welcoming and friendly. As with other reviewers the hotel down the road had excellent meals and staff were also very welcoming. Prices are... More

If you don't want to go camping in the area this is a good alternative. Comfortable and clean the rooms are very dated. Suitable for an overnight stop. The owner was very helpful. You can walk to everything from the motel. Dinner in the hotel up the street was very good.

Very clean, small, and dated decor, but comfortable for an overnight stay. I had trouble sleeping as the slimline, cream coloured venetian blinds do not block out the street lights, or the motel lights, and I need more darkness than that to sleep well. The exhuast fan in the bathroom is very loud, and comes on automatically with the light.... More

Meningie is a pretty little town and the motel is situated right in the centre opposite the lake. The motel itself is slightly tired but clean and there were very few guests the night we were there. However it had everything we needed, including a very comfortable bed and was very clean. The owner was very friendly and recommended an... More

This motel was fine for an overnight stop in Meningie on a road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne, in advance of visiting Coorong National Park. Meningie is pretty small, so the motel is easy to find and has nice views of the lake (including lots of pelicans) just across the road. The room was pretty dated, but was clean and... More

This place is in dire need of modernization (rooms are a time travel to the 70s though the TV has color) but it is clean, central and in fairly good condition. Great for a night's stopover, Meningie has everything to stock up.
