We've stayed at Dog Rock Motel quite a lot on our trips to Albany. Sometimes we upgrade and sometimes we don't and the rooms are always comfy with plenty of room, good views across the town and a restaurant that beats most other restaurants in Albany. Would recommend this family-owned accommodation to anyone. Good bush walks close by, and only... More

I recently stayed here for a business trip. The staff at the reception were very friendly and helpful. As I have very long hair I required an extra towel that was granted. What I didn't know was there was a cleaning service every day, had I know this I would not have left the room so hurriedly the next day,... More

Some of the reviews for this place put me off, but I had booked way back in April so didn't want to look elsewhere. We had an executive room. It was well appointed with a sofa and queen bed. There was a dedicated area to make tea and a toaster, cups, side plates and cutlery were provided as was a... More

This motel has been refurbished since I last stayed there. Fresh decor, good size rooms, parking out the front, there are also upstair rooms. All clean, had everything it needed, good quiet air con, as it was freezing in Albany. Like that I can walk to the centre of Albany. Tried the restaurant for breakfast, nothing special, most of it...

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.
