Room was dirty,smelled of smoke,cigarette butt found in room,dusty,bed hard. If we weren't travelling with a doggie I would have driven straight past,but we had no choice though so we stayed, Need to update details,no pool,no bar,no restaurant,i would give a big miss unless you have a pet

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

The accommodation is very basic, but pet friendly. Room was clean and bathroom has recently been updated. Location is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and cinema. It's not the Ritz but for an overnighter with your pet (and it's the only pet friendly motel in Rockhampton) its adequate.

We stayed here peak season 2015/2016 with our VERY large Labrador. We were on the second floor and were very impressed with the clean standards of the motel considering it is pet friendly. There are dogs everywhere! I really liked that food can be delivered to the room at no extra cost after a long day of driving. 10/10

This is the filthiest accommodation I have ever stayed at. Towels have brown stains on them. Bathroom absolutely disgusting. Dust all over the floors. Walls damaged and unrepaired. Needs a check by health inspector. Overall, dingey, filthy and I will never stay there again.
