We stayed here as a rest stop from Townsville to Brisbane and it was perfect. This motel is pet friendly so we had our cat stay with us. It was a long drive so it was great that the reception and restaurant was open late! The room was large, clean and even though this is a basic motel it was...

Very nice & comfortable room. A huge area to park our boat. A grassed area for the dog to stretch her legs. There aren't any restaurants/pubs within walking distance but there's a restaurant on-site & Pizza-Hut take-away close-by.

Check in was nice and simple, just showed phone booking, and small registration form. Room was clean and quiet. Great shower! The manager was even there to wave us off early in the morning. Would recommend. Easy parking.

Average motel but good if travelling with a pet which this motel offers. Room was clean, linen clean, amenities just refurbished and clean. Aircon was was filthy full of dust - washed the dust filter myself. It's a budget accommodation where you can stay with pet/s in your room overnight. Comfortable. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Wouldn't have stayed there...

This would have to be the worst motel in Rocky, caters to mine workers, tradies & sex workers, the internet is non existent except for one minute at a time, the phone's in the rooms don't work, when you complain to the manager via a mobile call he hangs up.. the beds must be 30 years old, the place has...

We stayed over night with our animals as we were relocating from Rocky down South and needed somewhere to stay for the night. It is great in a sense because they allow you to have your pets with you although it was very expensive (about $135 I think we paid) for one night for what the quality of the rooms...

We stayed at the Ambassador on the Thursday evening before Good Friday. It was our one and only stop while travelling to Armidale NSW for the Easter holidays, from Townsville QLD. We arrived sometime after 9pm, having made our booking online while still on the road. All we were looking for was a good meal and comfortable bed in order...

I stayed at the Ambassador Motel while I was traveling through Rockhampton last week, and was pleasantly surprised to see the great renovations that had taken place since my last stay. The place looks great with new bathrooms and a fantastic new white paint job. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are traveling to Rockhampton!! Plus they are...

Pool not clean, room smelled like wet dog, shiny tiles slippery when wet, new bathroom taps didn't work properly & handles came off in shower. Renos being done & work started early. Wouldn't stay here again or any pet friendly motel either. Cost $115 p/n & we had booked/paid prior to arrival for 2 nights.

The room was basic and had a strange smell to it, during the night the alarm kept going off. I tried to unplug it but couldn't as was stuck in the wall, the batteries had already been taken out so clearly this has happened before. It served its purpose I was tired and needed a bed, I wouldn't stay here...
