“Pet friendly! Fantastic!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Fantastic that pets are welcome!
Room needs some upgrades but it was very clean.We had a meal also, was basic but nice enough after driving all the way from Brisbane.Receptionist was friendly and the manager although buggered from a long day was still welcoming.
Would stay again as its often hard to find pet friendly accommodation.

My Dog gave this Motel three paws out of five, she had plenty of room for her bed and she was in Air-conditioning, Myself I found the Ambassador staff to be friendly the rooms were clean with a very good size TV. The rooms are a bit old however it was comfortable and we both got a good night’s sleep. If you go out the front and take the walk way over the highway there is a lane to the right where you can take your dog for a walk, it comes out to some playing, soccer fields. Also had dinner here not to bad as I was hungry. Overall a good place to stay if you have your dog with you.

I am puzzled by the negative reviews here, we are currently staying at the motel and have done so on a few previous occasions. We stay here because it is pet friendly and clean. This trip the service has been lovely and welcoming, room is clean (yes it's a little outdated but if you pay 3 star prices then you can't expect 5 star decor), and the location is brilliant being walking distance to shopping centre & kershaw gardens. I haven't heard any traffic noise and my unit is right on the highway. Great value, will stay again.

Enjoy our stay due to the fact they allow dogs as we were travelling through. The room very clean and tidy however Décor and surroundings are dated but functional.

Price is very good. Hosts very helpful and friendly.

A good place to stay for travelling through especially with pets.

My family is really enjoyed the day that we spent in Rockhampton Ambassador Motel with its owners.
1.The facility was really good, such as A/C, TV and shower spot. They also provide wonderful DVD movies, such as Taken (I'm a big fan)...
2. As well as the facility, we're also surprised by its history. This motel really changed my opinions about this place and the entire business. Ambassador motel was a club, In the old dinning room, we saw a huge wooden plate and full of the names of club presidents since 1977.
3. The most important thing is that the owners are very friendly. Before we came to this hotel, we were rejected by bunch of other hotels in the town. The owner didn't just offer the room, but cooked the late dinner for us. we're very touched by that.

Room Tip: If you go to rockhampton, of just stop by here, just choose ambassador motel. you won't regret...

We booked a night here last week on our trip to Brisbane with 3 of our kids ,the website said a family unit ,a double bed and single and 2 singles in the other room, nothing else but a huge tv. The A/C in both rooms couldn't keep up with the outside 46 deg temperatures and the fan blew hot air, considering we had a early start at 5.00 am, had about 2 hours sleep , due to no A/C and the lights outside don't get dimmed and its like daylight in your room all night.The beds were comfy but that's about all I can commend this motel on.To have beds with wheels on a newly tiled floor,like skateboarding all night when you roll over because you cant get comfy due to the heat and daylight outside.
We will not be staying here ever again.Need a good nights sleep when travelling with children.
Owners need to really have a hard look at the reviews are they are going to start loosing money.

Room Tip: Don't book the family room next to the highway...

This promised to be a standard motel and that is up to a point what we had. The shower was efficient and the motel was easy to find on the main highway. The overall appearance was rather scruffy, there were no bedside cabinets and the room was quite dark. What really marked out this motel from so many others was the offhand reception, the filthy swimming pool and the dreadful restaurant. In fact the overall experience was so poor that it actually became amusing.

Room Tip: Simply avoid
