We stayed overnight as part of a business trip for my husband and were thrilled with our accommodation. The owner was very friendly and happy to help with any request. We were a bit worried the room would be noisy being on a busy main road but I cant say the traffic was obvious at all. The room was very... More

We got there late and it was great to walk in and see it was such a spacious room. We had a studio room. Bed was very comfortable and there was a great range of Sky channels. Very friendly welcome from reception in the morning. Will definitely be back to stay and would highly recommend Baywatch Motor Inn.

This motor inn is stunning - both in price and décor! I was comfortable from the moment I was greeted by a friendly face at reception, to the time I handed back my keys. The rooms are the epitome of relaxation. I came here for my birthday and didn't leave the hotel once. The bedrooms are cosy, and the lounge... More

We spent two weeks at the Baywatch recently visiting relatives in the area and would highly recommend it. The room was very comfortable and immaculately clean with double glazing that blocks all street noise. The hosts Bernie and then Ross were great to deal with and very helpful. The motel is ideally located near to bars, restaurants and shops. Only... More

Good location at the Mount. Easy to walk to restaurants and the beach. Accommodation was warm and inviting, with a comfortable bed and although a studio room, it was more than roomy. Plenty of space for bags, etc. We could not find fault with anything, from the cost, the service, the amenities. Charming hosts too.

Great location, cafes close by, shopping and beach a short walk. I stay here regularly and the hosts are really friendly and accomodating. Rooms are always clean, lovely linen and sky a bonus. Won't stay anywhere else.

The room was beautiful, nice size. One thing that is important to me is clean feeling and how the bedding is. Loved both at this place. Clean and beautiful and the bed was nice and comfortable but more importantly crisp and clean white sheets. None of that feeling of not wanting some part of the bedding to touch you cause... More

Had a lovely stay here, great location, clean room. Awesome shower pressure and spa bath. big pump bottles of body wash/hair wash/moisturiser - not the tiny single use ones you usually get. Sky tv with a tv in bedroom as well. Comfortable furniture. There is not really a "view" it is just the road, quite a lot of traffic noise... More

As an unregistered time traveller and part time shape shifter, must give this humble establishment the highest praise. Shockingly clean, modern and sad(only because I could not stay another night). Have not seen many places like this around the world. Amazing !!

I travel throughout NZ with my work and always look forward to getting to Tauranga knowing I will have a great bed, strong hot shower and good free internet. Ross and Julie along with Bernie and Joy are perfect hosts, nothing is a problem. Credit must also be given to their cleaning team-the units are spotless! Just a 2 minute... More
