Dubbo hotels and accommodation, and many of them, have wonderful ratings through AAA. Rates range anywhere from $141.00 a night to $112.00, and less. The hotels provide basic amenities to provide you comfort and a good night's sleep. After all, you'll be spending two consecutive days at the zoo, so you'll need a comfy bed. All of the hotels and accommodations are family friendly and are run by reliable, recognizable companies. Regardless of where you decide to stay, you'll have something to look forward to the morning. I mean, who could pass up some meerkat pups exploring their abode, or their parents, sunning themselves in all their glory in a Buddha pose. Gotta love these guys!
