“Very clean and comfortable in central location”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I stayed here for one night last weekend with my son. Nothing was too much trouble and as I had requested on booking, the studio unit had two single beds ready for myself and my son. The studio unit is large and spacious with plenty of room even with two beds. The unit was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the access unit so the shower was a level access shower. The water did stay contained within the shower area and not all over the bathroom floor as sometimes happens if the fall on the floor is not quite right. There was a notice above the sink about the hot water taking some time to come through, but we didn't actually find this took any longer than anywhere else. The motel is very central and located directly behind the supermarket so it is a very short 3 minute walk down an access road at the back of the motel to the supermarket. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed with a group of fellow Department of Corrections employees, it was central, simple and the cleanest place I've stayed in! The hosts were welcoming and natural, the breakfast the next day was fantastic! Look, if you're in the area for business then I'd recommend this place, safe, comfortable and a good place to rest at the end of a hard day...

Room Tip: Pick the rooms further from the road, for obvious reasons.

We stayed just one night (a Friday) and found the Albert Park Motor Lodge clean, comfortable and convenient. The room was standard (queen bed) and as another reviewer has pointed out, hot water took a long time to arrive in the shower. The shower (with one of the water-saver, Amway type shower roses) was also very inconsistent with water temperature, wildly swinging between hot and cold whilst showering (there was no other water being used at the time in our room to affect flow). Free wifi which we were grateful for. The only comment (suggestion) that we would make in terms of change/improvement is to get rid of the signs throughout the unit. For example "You will be charged $60 for cleaning if you.....cook 'strong smelling food', eg. curry or seafood". There were other similar signs which made us wonder if this was a motor lodge or a boarding establishment and overall make for an unwelcoming ambiance in the room. Perhaps not all guests are considerate or rule-abiding but having signs like this for every guest is unnecessary and creates bad feeling. Guests who break rules are a fact of life in the accommodation business and I'm not sure that signs like this everywhere are the best way to deal with it.

I stayed here only one night but was impressed with clean my room was. I had a Queen studio room. It was great to have a heat pump, which took the chill off the air. Plunger coffee and cookies were also a great addition! Bed was comfortable, and complex was quiet. I would certainly stay here again. My only negative is that the hot water in the shower took ages to heat up. I ended up phoning reception as I was concerned that there was no hot water. I was advised that I had to run the tap in the kitchen first to get the hot water flowing! Not a major problem but did think that they perhaps ought to have a sign to advise customers so they dont think that there's no hot water!

We've stayed at the Motel before,usually to catch up with family in the area, though not for the last 2 years. This really is a top notch motel - clean, spacious, handy to the Town Centre,yet quiet. All the little touches are there - plunger coffee, biscuits, make-up removing towelletes, a spa bath, roomy shower, comfy beds --everything thought of. Beautiful furnishings (looked brand new?) lots of fluffy towels.
Would certainly recommend this Motel.

Room Tip: Sorry - don't know about kids activities as it's not relevant for us. If your husband snores...

We stayed two nights and were really impressed with the room and facilities provided in the room. Little touches like air freshener and fly spray. The room was immaculately clean and the reception was pleasant.The spa bath was wonderful and was just what we needed after a long drive.Even though the motel is on a bypass there was no traffic noise. We had a problem on the first night with extremely rude and noisy/drunk guests in the very early hours. When we mentioned it in the morning to the owner of the motel he was extremely apologetic even though it wasn't his fault and he addressed the issue with the company the men worked for straight away. The next night was a peaceful one (other than the electrical storm that hit cutting power for about an hour). Very central also which is great.

Room Tip: Maybe book a two bedroom if you have children as the second bed in the one bedroom was a pull out co...
