Stayed in a deluxe queen for 5 nights, breakfast included. A spacious room with balcony, a comfortable bed, a sofa and a good tub chair for dodgy backs. Breakfast was very good, with a good coffee machine. Bathroom was well designed and room servicing was thorough. Only the basics were provided in the rooms, however - 2 cups and saucers (why not decent sized mugs?), 2 teaspoons, an electric kettle that didn’t fit under the bathroom tap. Internet was truly primitive - needed to log on every time you wanted to use wifi. There was no signal for SBS in the time that we were there. Hot water was a problem on our last morning. Outdoors was a bit grey and drab, but that’s the price paid for proximity to the town. Overall, recommended.

First time staying here but many times in Albany, dog Rock motel was great, easy to book in, great friendly reception staff who were helpful even organised our dinner reservations, rooms were a little outdated but for the price they were great, had everything in the room you could possibly need, was a wonderful stay and we will definitely return, close to everywhere in Albany, walking distance to cafes, coffee shops and shops, lime 303 is located on the same grounds and is also an amazing restaurant definitely recommended by our family. Thank you to all the staff for the warm welcome, we will be back.

This motel was a bit drab, with uninspiring buildings and a layout reminiscent of a prison farm. ( I would imagine :) We stayed 4 nights, and to be fair we did not have a great room. You may have a better experience if you get a room with a balcony. Our room was just dull with neon lighting and dated furnishings. On the plus side. The room and restaurant were spotlessly clean, the housekeeping crew do a great job. The bathroom was functional with a good shower. The ladies at reception were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was fine Its in a great location, an easy walk to shopping and restaurants, or longer interesting walks if you like walking.

This motel is in a good location. Rooms are quite good, beds comfortable. Our room had a musty smell. Window wouldn’t stay open unless we put something to hold it up. Included breakfast is only continental with packaged cereals, juice etc. Coffee from machine was lukewarm. $10 extra for cooked breakfast from bain marie. Restaurant very crowded and no fresh air.
