We stayed two nights here on layovers in March 2015. The hotel is a short walk from the airport up a rather steep path. Our first stay was less than six hours in duration. It was not notable, and was satisfactory. Our second stay was horrendous. We were assigned room 240. On arrival, at about 1pm, we noticed that the... More

We stayed here before and after our trip in moored waiting for connecting flights. It's clean, easy to get to (although up a hill if your bags are heavy) and an ok free breakfast. Note- the queen bed rooms are really just two twins pushed together- and there are just sheets on the beds- no blankets- so plan your ac... More

We only spent one night here before our flight back home. The check- in was quick, the rooms are big enough and clean. The breakfast just ok, fair enough before you get something in the airport lounge. The taxi cost us 2400 CPF from ferry to this hotel. And the way to the airport took us only 5 minutes walking...

Used primarily for those for a short layover, this is the closest hotel to the Faaa airport. It is within walking distance up a steep hill after crossing 2 roads. We were able to roll up our 23Kg luggage up the rough side road to this hotel from the airport in under 10 minutes but we are physically fit. A... More

We arrived in Papeete late at night and wanted to make sure we don't waste more sleep time by travelling to the city. It was a good choice. We managed to get our luggage up the hill to the hotel in about 15 minutes (you can see it from the runway). The check-in was efficient, price very reasonable. Breakfast was... More

We stayed at this quaint hotel our first night in French Polynesia. It is so close to the airport it just makes sense when you arrive on the late flight. Breakfast was included the next morning and it was easy to get our flight out to Raiatea. Would definitely stay again.

Convenient location - directly across from airport. Not elderly or disabled friendly as you need to climb quite a few stairs from airport & cross the road to get to the outside of the hotel. Then there is a steep hill on a roughly covered driveway, followed by more stairs just to get to reception. Followed by more stairs to... More

We just spent one night at Tahiti Airport Motel, being in transit from Bora Bora to Los Angeles. The hotel is almost within spitting distance of Faa'a airport. We chose to store our bags at the airport and to walk up to the hotel, having read on Tripadvisor that this could be done. It is a steep climb, the latter... More

When a booking I had made for a B & B in Papeete fell through at the last minute I contacted the motel by web from Australia and was happy that they had a vacancy (3 days from travel). Our plane arrived late at night and my husband set off to see if we could drag our suitcases and hand... More

There is a step hill to get up with lots of barking dogs. The hill is only about 30metres but there are steps out of the airport. It was doable especially if you have a husband to carry the bags. It's walkable from the airport, clean, good price and great for an early morning flight. Staff were friendly & helpful
