I stayed in the new refurbished rooms (not sure of the name) but very nice. Nicely decorated and spacious. Bed very comfortable too. Was there for work but would come back as a visitor next time I'm in Albany

Located within easy walking distance to the shops. Rooms recently refurbished so very tasteful and comfortable. Staff very professional, welcoming and able to give and take a joke. Laundry facilities a little dated but they got the job done. Walked out to Castle Rock/ Granite Skywalk- a tough walk up a muddy, rocky path but as we were literally walking...

We choose the motel for its reviews and the price offered. We were overall satisfied with the stay for the given price. Rooms are far from new and the hotel is rather old. On a positive note, the motel includes Lime 303, a know local dining restaurant which we tried and liked.

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting W.A. Our room was spacious and exceptionally well laid out and we wanted for nothing. The restaurant at the motel well appointed and the food and service first class. Handy to shopping mall. Dog Rock is right out the front. So cute.

Stayed here and everything was just perfect. We were allowed to check in early to our room, even though we were a couple of hours early. The rooms are well appointed and very clean. It had extras like a toothbrush kit and a brown flannel for make up removal. Good thought. The house keeping were also very helpful, and very...

My initial thought was that it looked a bit dated, but we were pleasantly surprised . To be fair we had booked the deluxe room, and were more than happy with our room. Modern, exceptionally clean with all the bits and pieces that you would expect from a more expensive motel. It was centrally located within walking distance to the...

Don't be put off by the exterior (dated) of this motel (the breakfast hatches brought back memories). Our room (81) was up the back, quiet, spacious and well appointed with a second bedroom for our child. Brand new bathroom and clean fresh interiors. Plenty of linen and toiletries. Beds ok, pillows ok two good night's sleep. Only comment would be...

Large motel located just outside the town centre on high side of road. Good views from front rooms. Rooms are very dated, but clean, tidy and spacious. We found it very quiet and comfortable. Beds were relatively new compared to remainder of room. A short walk will take you to shopping centre of town which has restaurants and some lovely...

If you're after a nostalgic old school and average motel style then this is the place for you. The standard room had VERY original fixtures and furniture from 60s and 70s which took you right back in time to quaint, nostalgia of times past, until you got to the bathroom where an update to the toilet with a new $15...

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...
