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

Great place to stay, very tidy and lovely décor, very handy to the main town and walking distance to all local restaurants and shops. We have stayed at Baywatch twice now and we love it here, they have gone out in providing everything you need, you can even make your own breakfast if you wanted to save money. The linen... More

Great room with all facilities, spotlessly clean, welcoming and accommodating hosts, easy walking distance to the shopping centre / beaches / restaurants etc. A lovely place to stay - would definitely recommend.

I've been using Baywatch Motor Inn for the last 5 months on business. I have repeatedly use this place because of the friendly service, clean rooms and i've pretty much used every room in the complex in the last 5 months. It has all the amenities required and within walking distance to the shops, resturants and beach. The owners and... More

We drove around the Mount area looking at motels and because of out side appearance and very close to main shopping we booked in. The room was well laid out with excellent furniture and fittings, and spotlessly clean. There were nice extras such as teapot, coffee plunger and dispenser bottles for body wash and hand cleaner. The bed was extremely... More
