We stayed here before a big sporting event. If you are after a uni-dorm like experience then this is definitely your place to stay. Kept awake by people running up and down stairs at 1am in their towels (after the pool closes at 9). The rooms are paper thin you can hear every word of the next door neighbour's conversation....

The Internet site promised so much but reality was a real let-down. Only good things were location and the shower. The room was dark, damp, dingy and dirty; the bathroom dirty. Overall it had a feeling of decay and in need of a major refurbishment. Tiny old fashoned TV, uncompfortable bed, and a decided musty smell. Heating had a mind... More

People need to kep some perspective when reviewing this place. Yes it's abit tired and dated, there's the odd stain on the carpet, and cleaning standards aren't perhaps quite up there (although nothing unhygienic) but it's comfortable enough and nice and quiet, the service was good and friendly and it was good value for money given the location.

I stayed in this accommodation 2 weeks ago and would never stay again or advise anyone to do do the same. Our room was dark and damp and likewise the bathroom. Towels didn't dry when hung up.The bathroom door wouldn't close as it was wet and swollen. A corner of the bathroom was missing a piece of gib board and... More

There are four blocks and we stayed in Block 3. I can't speak for the other blocks but ours was awful. The decor was dated (which I could cope with) but the rooms were filthy. The bathrooms were mouldy, curtains were missing hooks so didn't properly close, bedspreads were stained and there was a terrible problem with ants on the... More

I booked 3 nights at the Parklane Motor Inn, but left after 1 as it was the worst experience I have ever had staying in a hotel. I checked in and went to the room to find it in a very run down condition - walls were very damaged & bogged up messily. There was a black iron mark in... More

This place needs a major refurbish,the only good thing I can say is that the lady at reception was very helpful when I asked for another room as the one allocated had a bad musty smell and to many faults to mention. I would not be surprised if this hotel folds in the near future due to the major upgrade... More

Location = fantastic. Everything else = major letdown. Whilst this place may have been very swanky back in 1998 it is now well past its best and needs a major overhaul. The room was big, but smelled damp and was pretty shabby. The bathroom was also big, but there was mould on the walls and the toilet wasn't fixed to... More

Was happy with the average quality and cleanliness of accommodation, and everything was on hand. Items that were damaged/broken were quickly attended to by helpful staff - so can commend the room/bathroom and good location. Booking staff helpful and friendly, but this hotel charges $100 BOND! Not a deposit of $100 with the balance payable, but a whole extra $100... More

Auckland was booked out due to all the attractions happening in Auckland.We had to opt for more expensive lodging for one night while visiting Auckland on business.The motel offers a pool, gym and sauna none of which we used.We had our own wifi via our mobile phone.The room was well appointed and clean.Noisy till 11pm otherwise fine.
