A good family motel for an over night stop. Centrally located where one can just cross the road for meals at shopping area. Strong free wifi. Room is clean, although not fancy. We had a good sleep indeed. after long journey from Perth.

The room was ok, the layout was a bit odd. You could listen to the tv whilst in the spa but you couldn't see it. The weather was pretty awful so we spent most of our time in the room. It was spacious and nice but I wouldn't say it was really worth what we paid.

The Dog Rock Motel is a clean and comfortable with parts currently under upgrade. A good up town location with easy access to local shopping, although shops shut early on week nights in Albany. Overall, good quiet location.

My family and I were deeply disappointed when we walked into our room at the Dog Rock Motel. Everything about this place was simply awful. The room stank and the beds had indentations in them from where bodies had slept over decades. Everything in the room was from the 1960's. We complained as we couldn't sleep in such a pit... More

I stayed here recently for work, it is clean and convenient although you do have to remember that it is just a motel so the decor is a little dated. The staff were lovely and the rooms were quite large.

Nothing much has been done to it since it was built obviously, but for all that it was neat and clean and we got a good night's sleep. Albany town centre isn't big and the motel's within easy reach of anywhere you want to go.

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.
