“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

After arriving in Perth late the previous night and having a bad motel experience, it was such a relief to arrive at Emu Point Motel and be greeted so happily by the owners. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The owners are very friendly and helpful with information about the surrounds and the options for dinner. The motel is an older style but doesn't lack any of the creature comforts. And is certainly value for money at $89 a double! And although we didn't stay for breakfast, $7 each is unheard of these days!
And after a long days driving, it was very relaxing to be able to walk less than 100 metres to the end of the street and enjoy a long walk along the beach.
This was our first time to Albany, and although we may not get back there, we certainly have good memories. Thank you.

Room Tip: I think any room would be fine. Good to keep in mind, they do offer a laundry for your use, if you...

Stayed one night with my honey in a "standard" room at Emu Point Motel in Albany, Western Australia. To say that we were delighted with the accommodates is an understatement. The motel has been under the current ownership for 18 months and they are on track to totally upgrade the property.

We stayed in Room #4 and were impressed as soon as we opened the door. Our "standard" oversized room included a new 42" flat screen HD TV, new mattress, was freshly painted, and had a well equipped kitchen. The Emu Point Motel has ownership that really cares about its guests. We arrived at 8:00pm, after a one hour flight from Perth, and the owners were waiting for us with the room key in his hand. Because we were departing early the next morning, the owners stayed late and immediately completed the registration process. Then we were given a map of the area, complete the with highlights that needed to be seen.

The price was right and so was the service and room. My five star rating is because of the high quality of care and dedication of the owners to insure their guests have a superior experience. It is my understanding that larger units are available. We also had a twin sized bed that would be perfect for at least three people. Check the motel's direct website and Trip Advisor for the best rates.

We stayed at the Emu Point motel for 1 night during a road trip round SW WA. It is an amazing find - I wish we could have stayed longer. Our trip was a special treat for our anniversary and the hotel commemorated this by upgrading us to an executive room - huge lounge area with leather corner sofa, iPod docking station, full kitchen and the comfiest bed we came across in WA. The service was excellent and we were made to feel so welcome. It was definitely our favourite motel (of many!) that we visited, and by far the cheapest too. It is a little out of Albany on the gorgeous Emu Point. Albany itself is a small city and impressed us with its range of restaurants and shops. I wish we had longer there.
Thank you Emu Point motel.

We stayed one night here on our travels around WA. What a find!! From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and the accommodation was great and very good value. Our room was very clean and well appointed with plenty of electric outlets for recharging etc. Very nice bed linen. This is an older style motel but has been kept updated and fresh. The self contained kitchen was well equipped and it had a good size fridge. The tv was a good size and had plenty of channels to chose from. There is also a quest laundry. All in all this is very good value and an extremely pleasant to stay. Would definitely recommend

We were here for the weekend and found the motel room very clean and quite nice for what we paid. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and toilet also clean and tidy along with the kitchen, with everything in working order. The television had lots of channels and they all had good reception. Even though we were out for most of the day, we came back to a comfortable, clean room. We had a great deal for the 2 nights which was well worth the stay.

Max at the front desk was wonderful in helping out with directions and information on the local fishing spots, tourist attractions and places to dine.

Overall, for a little place in a beautiful spot, I would definitely stay here again. I've stayed in a few 4 and supposed 5 star hotels and shame to them. The service and presentation of this place is "5 Star" in my books.

I stayed at this motel for 2 nights. It is an older style Australian country motel but the room was well kept, clean and comfortably furnished. There was a kitchenette with microwave, sink, small oven, hotplate, toaster, cooking utensils etc. The shower recess was very large. For $89 per night it was very good value. It is located at Emu Point which is several km from the city centre but close to beach, boating and other attractions. Staff were very helpful in providing info about services in the area.

We had a last minute stay here due to a closure of our booked accommodation. The owners were very accommodating being so last minute, and our room was ready and more than reasonable at $79 per night. The bed was great, great TV, bathroom was slightly dated but still one of the best when you consider usual motel standards. The most noticeable thing was the cleanliness! Everything was spotless! The owners were also super helpful with reccommendations for local eats. Is located a little bit out of Albany but talking a 5 minute drive, not a big deal, a plus side is that it is quiet and not on a main road!
