The room was clean and comfortable but I think it's overpriced for what it is. The restaurant was out of action for renovations and they forgot to give me milk in the room so no coffee or tea in the morning which made me cranky! 😂 luckily there is a 24/7 truck stop right next door! I honestly wouldn't stay...

Motel is near a noisy highway. Rooms are old but clean inside. Windows are filthy and curtain is drawn making room permanently dark. No internet for guests. Don't recommend it. Overpriced. Close to shops

My partner and I overnighted on our way home to Airlie from Brisbane. We chose to stay at the Ambassador as they are pet friendly. We were very concerned at staying after reading the reviews on trip advisor, however I am happy to report that we did not experience any of the negative items reported by other reviewers. I believe...

While the room was VERY dated, that wasn't really the issue. The owner is obviously doing some much needed renovations and probably in about 3-4 months the rooms will be at a much better standard. The owner was friendly and welcoming but with all the improvements going on, needs to keep a better handle on the rooms present facilities. With...

We stayed at the Ambassador overnight during a road trip. This was our second visit. Location The motel is located on the Bruce Highway more or less in the centre of Rockhampton. It's very convenient for a quick stay (we arrived late and left early). Rooms The rooms are surprisingly large for the price, and very clean. The bathroom was...

Stayed overnight on our way to Mackay. Easy to find being on the main route, close to shops etc and great that it was pet friendly. Dave was a great host both on the phone and in person and the check in was a breeze. It's not the Hilton but it provides quite, secure and the basic comforts you need....

The title says it all, this motel is clever in servicing the dog lover market, we travelled through and wanted a night in Rocky. Dave was helpful and booked us in, we paid an extra $20 for the dog to stay, a fair price when you consider extra cleaning. We ate from a Menulog choice, nice Indian food and they...

We stayed here overnight on the way to Brisbane, travelling with our (rather large) fur baby. Great place! Friendly check in, quiet and clean. Is on a main road but can't hear from room. Would definitely stay there again! Thank you
