Has all amenities, food, warmth, good ole NZ fish and chips: The motel manager, polite made sure you had all amenities. Private with trampoline for children, nice green grass to play on. Price for room affordable and the shower pressure was bliss. Very good bargain, and totally enjoyable stay. Definitely be going back!!

Recently needing somewhere to stay in Otaki we crossed our fingers and booked Otaki Motel. Definitely value for money at a reasonable price, very pleasant lookout on lawns, trees and seating area. A trampoline for children. Best of all, spotlessly clean and a good shower with plenty of hot water.. Would be happy to stay there again. My only mild... More

Have stayed before to shop the outlet shops in Otaki. Location is brilliant - a 2 minute walk to shops. Motel unit very dated and very basic but comfortable and clean and has all that's needed - apart from wifi - apparently doesnt work so well in end unit. What I found a little surprising was the fact that the... More

Very economical, good sized room, new bathroom and had a ranchslider to outside seating area. Conveniently located although it is sandwiched between a busy road and the railway line so be aware of this if you are used to a quiet location as the traffic doesn't stop at night!

This motel is straight out of the 70s including the beds. You can see bare electrical wires in the fuse box and in the bathroom. It it right on the main road so you hear the traffic all night. I cannot think of anything good to say about this motel.

Cam C, Manager at Otaki Motel, responded to this review

I'm really sorry to hear your experience with us was not satisfactory. We recently did some maintenance work which involved cutting down two of the trees next to the road. Unfortunately the result of this was that it has allowed some noise from the highway to enter into the nearest unit. We will try to come up with a solution... More

This motel is a convenient stopping off place for travellers wanting to avoid the rush of Wellington. It is located on the main road but we did not find noise to be a problem. Rooms have a pleasant outlook on to a garden/lawn area with outside tables - ideal for summer. The beds were comfortable and linen and bed covers... More
