Alabaster Motor Inn
Ranked #8 of 15 Hotels in Taree
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Although in the middle of a major refurb we found the room very comfortable and also with 2 teenage children we had no issues. The motel is in a great location just on the edge of town but close to eateries and all necessities. Once the refurb is complete this will be a terrific stop over or destination. Once the WiFi booster is in place we will not need to be outside of our room. Will be back again

while it was in the middle of renovation the owner couldn't have been more helpful,and as soon as the restaurant is finished it will be outstanding.The hotel is also very close to 2 other eateries and a nice quiet pub

I stayed here for business just prior to Christmas 2013 and had good service.
The room was dated, but very clean. However they are undertaking a major refurbishment & from what I can see of the photos of the few rooms that are already renovated they look well above average for Taree.
Wi-Fi did not work, disappointing as I really needed the internet for work that evening. However the Manager logged me into their own personal Wi-Fi which was appreciated.
I have just rebooked for a coming trip. So I was happy enough.

Just a note to management - maybe the children who live there could be guided to play 'away' from Guests rooms. The noisy little boys straight outside my room until after 8pm would have been better playing elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.

Wonderful friendly helpful Manager!!! Pool open much longer than other Motor Inns! Restaurant directly across the road with good Italian food! Good comfortable beds. All round great place to stay!! On arrival shown to our room and told about the attractions in the area.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less road noise!!

When reaching Taree we just wanted to rest up for the long journey home next day. The motels exterior looked reasonable and it was apparent that some renovation/refurbishment was taking place. The owner was on the phone when we went to check in and while waiting we noticed the mess of paperwork on the desk and floor plus an ashtray that needed a good clean, when finally off the phone the owner was very friendly and chatty (perhaps a little too much) and he told us he had had Managers in previously who had let the motel run down and he was now trying to refurbish and build it back up. Our room was spacious, the bed was the most comfy I've come across in a motel as were the pillows (left ours in the car that night), plenty of tea, coffee and even hot chocolate. Carpets were new. The bathroom area is very outdated and the toilet continued to run overnight, however with careful planning there is potential for a large clean and modern bathroom. Owner didn't require payment on check in unless you planned to leave early - as compendium in room said office opened at 7am didn't think we'd be leaving early ..... however at 7 am office was not open, we rand door bell, we dialled from our room, we rang from our mobiles but no answer - son of owner appeared from a top floor unit and even he couldn't get into the office or raise anyone, after wasting 25 minutes we gave the son our room key and told him we would ring through our card details that evening which we did. Three days later payment has yet to go from our card. Whilst management skills seem a little lax, our stay was comfortable and reasonably priced. On the northern side of town there are several eateries opposite.

Room Tip: Ask to see room before checking in - and pay on check-in

Recently I booked a room at this motel using the motels own website. On arrival no room was available as the person who deals with on line reservations was away. I was not offered any apology for this mix up and no offer was made to try to ring other motels to see if a room could be found. I find this to be extremely bad (inefficient) service, if a business is going to offer on line service then someone should be available to deal with this service. I do not recommend this motel.

It all started ok the room we booked was not what we got! The manger took it apon him self to put us in a smaller room and charge us the same rate!

Then only to find out when we went out to a function and leaving the air con on as it was about 35 degrees to come back and have it turned off?? Why did they enter our room at all what else did they take look at?? Creepy!!

Husband and Wife team the are just rude and down right horrid!!

Don't stay here find anything else at all just no this place!!
