Albany is a beautiful town. This motel is a standard three star motel, in need of an update, however it was very comfortable and had everything required. We visited on the Anzac Weekend and places were limited and prices were high all over town. The motel itself is situated up a hill above the main street in Albany. Convenient, however... More

Not the most modern motel, but I have stayed here on and off since the 1980's. It has basic facilities, but is clean and comfortable for a short stay. You can walk into Albany town easily from here and a supermarket is across the road.

I stayed here for a night and found the motel staff very pleasant at the reception desk and in the restaurant. The room was clean with the usual basic appointments. I was puzzled to see a toaster with the kettle and cups but couldn't find a plate or knife to use if you happened to want a slice of toast.... More

"Standard room" should be renamed "horrible room". Horrible decor & suffocating smell of mothballs. wifi is a token signal (you can't actually browse or do anything). Seriously can't understand how they could let a room of this quality out and not expect a terrible review.

Stayed for 1 night during a business trip. The room appeared recently refurbished and was clean. The queen size bed was comfortable, the aircon/heater worked well and the desk staff were very helpful. The motel is opposite the iconic "dog" rock and within close proximity to shops and closer to centre of town than the waterfront. The room was equipped... More

It has been many years since I have visited Albany so my husband and I decided to visit the new National Anzac centre on the Anzac Day Long Weekend. We chose Dog Rock Motel for our stay of 3 nights as it is so centrally located but far enough away from the night time bustle of nearby hotels and revellers.... More

This establishment was used for a sporting group accommodation. It is centrally located and nicely appointed. The room was clean neat and tidy, with quality fittings, linen and bathroom accessories. The inclusion of free wifi is a pleasant surprise from other establishments. I was particularly impressed with the motel restaurant. On first inspection, I was very impressed. The fit out... More

Great proximity to the central city, where there are some nice places to eat, very quaint little place. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and tidy, style and furnishings in the rooms are very 80s but again clean. Would recommend

The room was clean and well appointed. I think the rooms have recently been renovated so while the outside of the motel is a bit tired looking, it is fine on the inside. I stayed in a 'lower end' room which was perfectly adequate however I believe the pricier rooms are quite special since the renovations and worth checking out.... More

Spotlessly clean room but desperately in need of a major update. Great location and very quiet. The restaurant was wonderful and everyone that we encounter was friendly and very helpful. Would recommend.
