I knew this was and old motel - it was built when I was a boy growing up in Bunbury so I was very sceptical when it was suggested by a business associate that I stay there. But I jumped on their website and noted rooms had been updated and they didn't look too bad. WRONG - well at least the one I got was not! As I climbed up the steep external concrete stairs in the rain and walked along a narrow external balcony I got an uneasy feeling in my stomach. When I opened the door my worst fears were realsied, it was like walking into a time capsule. The room smelled like an old people's home and the furniture looked like it had been assembled from stuff they had found on a verge collection. It was so cold in there I looked for the heater and eventually (after reading the obligatory mock leather-bound room manual) found a switch on one of those old panels with knobs and buttons on the wall next to the bed. To say what happened next frightened heck out of me would be an understatement - the wall shook as the old through-the-wall room air conditioner fired up and it was so noisy there is no way I could have slept with it running. So I turned it back off promptly and listened to the noise of the cars wizzing by on the major road outside my window. At least there was a street light right outside the window that shone a bit more light in than the inadequate lighting in the room. But when I tried to close the curtains to block it out I found they didn't even meet in the middle and whatever I did there was a still a big gap that let light stream in. I flopped on the bed exhausted and thought about ordering room service. The standard of the room got me thinking about the possible standard of the kitchen and as the springs creaked and snapped under me and stuck into my back I decided to get out quick before I was perhaps attacked by something that may have survived living in here. Maybe I'm being too harsh and maybe my expectations are too high, but I picked up my bag, checked out and went to a newer se of serviced apartments where for $20 a night more I had a self contained studio apartment with all the mod cons. Never again Admiral Comfort Inn Bunbury! I will leave it to the workers who packed out the place obviously because their employers got a way better deal than I did.
