We tried to book at another property but it was full so the Alabaster it was. We were not disappointed in any way with our stay, with the cleanest room we have stayed in anywhere. Very spacious and well equipped and the owner Ian was extremely helpful with information on the area and even offered to drive us into town, which is only a nice stroll anyhow. If we return there is no doubt as to were we will stay. Thanks Ian & the Alabaster Motel.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rear rooms, quite & spacious.

Thank you for your review.

Many of our guests have found the Econo Lodge Alabaster in this way - our best advertisement is our clean rooms, refurbished motel accommodation, new bathrooms along with significant upgrades to our motel.

This is the main reason why many of our guests become repeat guests - Thank you.

We combine this with great country hospitality, along with an evening meal service and room service breakfast!!

I would like to thank you for your business and look forward to greeting you on your next visit to the Econo Lodge Alabaster, Cowra.

Regards,
Ian

We booked a two bedroom room and got this very spacious apartment with bedroom 1 having one double and a single bed, bedroom having three single beds. All beds had heated blankets to use if needed. No kitchen facilities (except for a fridge), but we did not need those.

Bathroom and shower facilities were great. Wifi adequate. Slight noise from heavy trucks passing.

We loved front desk staff and the welcome and advice (dinner) we received!

The unit does not have cooking facilities, however a microwave, toaster and jug is provided and a bar-b-q is available on site!!

Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits are provided to all our guests.

The two rooms are both air conditioned with modern reverse cycle air con, and each room has its own TV.

Packaged biscuits with tea/coffee making things Close to town. Good variety on menu for room service. Breakfast available. Definitely recommend this one.

Thank you for your review.

I do recall your visit and your phone call to book the last room in the motel last Saturday night - we get a lot of great feedback about the cleanliness of our motel rooms and what great rates they are sold at!!

The room that you booked was a standard room and since we bought the motel 12 years ago we have steadily improved all our rooms - in your room there was a new bed and bedding, new carpet, new front door and new windows, along with flat screen TV and inverter air con!!

Like many of our guests the first night was so enjoyable that you decided to stay a second - thank you for this compliment!!

I would like to thank you for your business and look forward to greeting you on your next visit to the Econo Lodge Alabaster, Cowra.

Very happy to return to the Econo Lodge Alabaster again. Welcoming hosts - clean, renovated rooms, comfortable beds, great size bathrooms, good quality linen and towels, with plenty of in-room supplies for an overnight stay. Air con and elect blankets kept us warm and snug on a chilly night. Great stopover - thank you. :-)

This winter has been very cold and it was great that your motel room kept you warm and snug - our inverters air con's are very efficient at warming the motel rooms and this year we have been purchasing new electric blankets for all our new beds!!

Couldnt fault this motel compared to the many others I stayed in.
Friendly helpful staff , even at 9pm when we couldnt work out how to turn on the electrcic blankets .
Good selection of shampoos,tea coffee biscuits,very clean and excellent hot water and shower pressure,rooms also come with microwave ,wifi

I gather the owner takes pride in his her motel as there was a lot of attention to detail eg on top of cupboards were clean etc

Undercover parking too

good value for money

Thank you for your review.

We purchased the Econo Lodge Alabaster Cowra 12 years ago, and from the first day that we owned this motel our mission was to treat all guests in a friendly, professional manner no matter what time of day or night!!

Our second aim was to always provide our guests with a great level of service along with refurbished motel accommodation.

When ever we have upgraded our motel we have always replaced items with items of better quality - I believe this is the reason why many of our guests compliment us on the great water pressure and on how hot our showers are!!

This policy extends to all aspects of our motel!!

Thirdly, and finally we have trained our cleaning and relief staff with these values and we believe that this provides our guests with value motel accommodation in Cowra!!

I would like to thank you for your business and look forward to greeting you on your next visit to the Econo Lodge Alabaster, Cowra.

Ian
