We walked into town for dinner, everything is very convenient. Breakfast was very good, lots of variety (cooked-cereal-yogurt-fresh... More

Ive stayed here many times and have never had any problems here. Rooms are always clean and roomy. Meals in the restaurant are always well presented and tasty. Its well positioned to walk to the centre of town and there is a shopping centre across the road. there is free WiFi through out the complex.

My wife and I stayed here for a business trip to Albany. I would normally stay else where but this is the place her company has chosen for stays in Albany. The room itself has been upgraded and is comfortable and accommodating. The bathroom is very nice and good linen provided. Bed was comfy with good pillows. We had room... More

not a bad place - basic, but clean and comfy. We stayed over easter weekend, so peak time, but even considering this, it was not good value for money. The mexican restaurant opposite is nice - it's bring your own booze too!

Dog rock hotel is certainly one of the better hotels in Albany. It has recently been renovated and the rooms are a good size. Bed are comfortable and a nice restaurant with reasonable breakfast prices. Close to town as well. Would certainly recommend for anyone going to Albany for work or pleasure.

This 1980s style motel has been given a makeover, partly, to bring it into contemporary times. Checked in after checking other Tripadvisor reviews and negotiated standard room price for 3 nights in upgraded room. They are spacious and have verandah with partial view of town. My room, at rear of motel was peaceful and very comfortable. Good bathroom, big tv... More

I stayed one night at the Dog Rock Motel on business in a deluxe room. Fortunately the renovated room was considerably better than the uninspiring 1960s exterior of the motel might lead you to expect. It was nicely furnished and very clean. The free wifi was useful. The location in the centre of Albany is very convenient, with a small... More

I'm reviewing from a trip in Feb 14, but I always stay at the Dog Rock Motel when in Albany, which is usually for work purposes. It's central and close to everything, and has a great atmosphere. I usually stay in a deluxe room - all these types have been refurbished. A recent innovation at the Dog Rock is free... More
