“Basic hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Room was basic but neat and tidy. Close to fast food restaurants and shopping centre. Air-conditioning needed servicing as it did not blow cool air and was very noisy so none of us slept very well. Service was not great when I checked out my 3 year old daughter was spoken to but I was not acknowledged. If you are just after a bed then this is perfect.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Arrived with no booking at 8pm and found the host to be very friendly. She was mindful of the fact the I had young children so offerred me the options that had parking directly outside. I chose a room facing the road as it had more beds and found the noise to be not too bad (to be honest I didnt hear it until the children were asleep!) but it was audible. I don't know whether this would have been an issue in the rooms further back (I think that only 2 rooms in the motel actually face the road).
The room itself was spacious and clean. There was a sink, microwave, tea and coffee and a decent size garbage bin. There was room for a small table and a couch as well as a vanity bench. There were also wine glasses but no plates, bowls or cutlery other than teaspoons, cups and saucers and drinking glasses. The decor was older style but not grotty - I thought very clean and no musty smells. The TV was a large and modern LCD/plasma (about 40 inch I think) with Austar. The shower was nice and toiletries were provided.
Overall, at $130 for the night for a family room I found this motel to be a good value stop over.

We stayed here one night on our way back to Melbourne. Very clean & comfortable. Great price. Had working heater & electric blankets. We had a great nights sleep.
I would definitely recommend this motel. Staff were friendly & helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2011

I was in Albury for work and stayed at The Cottage Motor Inn. The rooms are basic but clean, have space enough for you to spread your things out a bit and have good a/c. The beds are standard hotel, nothing too flash but comfortable enough when you've driven 400+ km in a day. I slept well and didn't hear a thing during the night even though the hotel is on the highway.
Restaurants and shops are just a few blocks away.
