Blue Whale Motor Inn & Apartments, Warrnambool
Lovely motor inn of high standards
Blue Whale is conveniently located at the edge of town so it is relatively quiet and still fairly close to the town center (about a mile). The property may look like a motel from the outside, but my room at the back of the property resembles a 3- or 4-star hotel room inside. The room is flooded with light. It feels awfully spacious even with two beds (a queen and a twin, suitable for a family of three at least). The decor is simple and yet elegant. There is a dining area along the entrance wall with a small fridge and a microwave. There are an electric water boiler and many pouches of instant coffee and tea (Yay! and the reception desk will offer you a small carton of fresh milk during check-in). The bathroom is spotless and huge with a single vanity sink and a stand-in shower. They even put two lounge chairs and a table right outside by the entrance door, great for catching some sun in the late afternoon. All in all I really liked the room I had and got a really good night sleep in the comfy queen bed.

Overwhelming smell
We arrived about 4pm and by 9:30pm we were gone. The smell of carpet / air freshner was so overpowering it was making us sick. We tried to air the room out for hours to no avail. There wasn't a table to sit at to eat, only a bench along the wall leaving us sitting side by side in metal chairs looking at a brick wall. No couch, not one comfortable piece of furniture in the place leaving us with nowhere to sit. We couldn't even sit against the head of the bed due to the extremely low light placed over almost the entire back of the bed. There were no batteries in the remote for the a/c so we had to keep switching them from the tv to the a/c as necessary. After approximately 5 hours of trying to remove the smell from the room and both of us becoming sick from it, we decided to cut our trip short and just go home. It was better to drive 3 hours in the dark, exhausted, to get home than to try to remain in that room. We won't be back.
