Spent 3 nights here. Upgraded to better room as basic one too dark and view of car park. This is a motel so cars at the doors, and not a lot of soundproofing! However the room was newly upgraded and clean and fresh but not luxurious. Great towels, comfy bed and fridge and mini bar. Easy to walk down into...

Only stayed for 1 night in an executive king room, but this was very good with a great onsite restaurant, Lime 303. Spacious room, upper level, clean, balcony, stocked minibar, nice bath amenities, walking distance from city center and view of the Dog Rock. Friendly staff, free WiFi, so very OK although it doesn´t look that way from the outside.

Very basic. Needs refurb. Clean inside. Balcony not good- spiders and cobwebs. Products in bathroom very basic. Over priced. Quite dark inside even with lights on. Noisy at night- lots youngsters in neighbouring rooms. Friendly staff at reception. Ok for overnight but that's about it .

We have stayed at this motel two or three times in the past and it was very good then. But they have done recent renovations to the rooms (we could hear power tools during our stay) and they have degraded the standard rooms. We where charged $149 per night for the standard queen room. -The new beds are of the...

A mere 2 night stop over in this motel turned out to be a good choice. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom. Fully facilitated condiments etc. Very comfortable with helpful and friendly staff. What else does one want? When next visiting Albany this shall be my one stop motel. The location could not be more central and the overall access to...

Old motel with old furnishings. Very clean and close to town. Walking distance to most things. A bit pricey,will look else where. Breakfast very expensive so walked in to town to one of the many cafes.

The Dog Rock Motel is reasonably centrally located, the rooms are large but dated and the staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable and this will work ok for you if you are here for just a day or three. I didn't have breakfast here as it was a little pricey and there are other options within walking distance.

Clean, tidy, close to the town centre. Easy access to the accomodation, hot water, iron and all other ammenities catered for. Not bad priced and staff friendly, I would visit again. The dog rock boulder doesn't look like a dog and I'm not sure why it's a tourist attraction.

Visiting Albany and was booked into a deluxe room. Plenty of room to stretch out, including a bench that could be used as a desk. Appreciated the provided dental 'kit" as I forgot my toothbrush. Great shower head in bathroom. The room at the back of the property was very quiet, had excellent parking. The location was close (walking) to...
