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 had to go to Albany on business with am associate and stay the night, I chose the motel on advice from a friend who runs the local Southwest Regional tourism office. It is exactly opposite the Famous tourist site "Dog Rock" which for those who don,t know, is a large natural lump of rock siting along in the centre... 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

The motel is a little dated but there is an ongoing modernisation programme being undertaken we believe. The rooms were clean and reasonably well furnished. The attached restaurant Lime 303 is exceptional but be prepared to pay for the quality.

We stayed for one night over the Labour Day weekend. The room was spacious and we had an ok view of Albany. The thing I found the most peculiar was booking. I booked online and did not receive a confirmation email so we tried calling the next day but there was no answer. We arrived in Albany and did some... More

We stayed for two nights in a basic room on our way through from Esperance to Margaret River thinking this was a good spot to stay. The room was depressing, old fashioned (60's) and unsuitable and looked like a hostel room. The bathroom was disgraceful. The staff didn't seem at all interested in enquiring if we enjoyed our stay, even... More

I have stayed here a number of times and have been happy to stay each time. It has a great central position in town and handy to restaurants and shopping. When there for a number of nights for work it is great when you can walk everywhere. I will return again shortly.

I had a very pleasant motel room. The rooms are situated behind the reception and dining room areas and so are quiet, and away from any road noise. My room was good sized, very clean and smart, with kettle, toaster & fridge. I had requested and got a ground floor room. My only concern was that the large window had... More
